I admit I really do like making fanart for the various shows, comics, and video games I obsess over. And I get a big kick out of the fact that the people who view my gallery like them too. But lately whenever I look through my gallery i'm overcome with a feeling that my art is cheap. That i'm not really striving for any true creativity, but just re-packaging ideas that have come before me.
Now, fanart will always have a place here, and it serves it's purpose, but I really want to start putting up all the ideas I have that are my own, that for whatever reason I don't have the time or energy to actually do a whole project for. (I'm of course referring to the COUNTLESS ideas I have for original comics that I just can't seem to get off the ground.)
My original stuff can be pretty derivative at times, especially my superhero stuff. So bear with me for the time being, but if I don't start focusing on new stuff now, i'll never get better.
