Before I get into this I want to apologize for sounding preachy, but a growing pet peeve of mine over the years as I converse with peers at Artist Alleys is an increase of fanart that's not actually by fans.

What I mean are all these illustrators flocking to the scene that for the most part, just spit out work of popular subject matter for the sake of sales.

Now I'm not naive, many artists sign up at Artist Alley are clearly there for the income and that's totally cool but come on guys. At their core, comic/anime conventions should be about gathering with others to celebrate geeky shit you're passionate about. It's about sharing your fandoms with others, right? Ideally.

So when I see a booth that is mostly composed of say... League of Legends lady pinups I'd be like "Oh cool, this person plays League too! I should totally geek out with them" but after a quick exchange of words it turns out they don't actually play. Or they did, like once but don't really like it. They're in it for the money.

Finding this out as a fan and fellow artist, it feels like a punch to the gut. Don't get me wrong though, I completely get the logic behind it. Currently League of Legends is one of the most played games in the world, the following is nothing short of ludicrous. You'd be stupid not to spit out a pinup of Jinx/Ahri/Vi etc. right? Cause Sex sells. Pinups are clearly where it's at.

Ugh.

That's just one example though, there's a plethora of fandoms I'm into that I see misrepresented all the time and it's something I grind my teeth at for practically every show. But really, who the fuck am I to tell people what they should draw? Absolutely no one, I'm not important.

I'm just a guy who's asking... draw things you really care about. If you're going to shit on licenses and do fanart the least you can do is be a fan.

Canada
Drake (Winson) Tsui is a freelance illustrator currently huddled in the cold city of Calgary, Alberta.

I spend most of my days glued in front of a computer screen making a living off of 2D game art, pop-illustrations/paintings and a sponsored webcomic, SIN.

I have an extensive interest in visual entertainment media such as video games, comics, movies/film, and television. I enjoy walking my babygirl dog and buying collectibles I don't need from said media that don't impress anyone.

Please feel free to contact me about my work or whatever :]

Hi, just wondering if you were aware of Inkblazer's shutdown? It will be officially closing on February 1, 2015 and all the data will be deleted without archive or backup, so... where else will we be able to read your comic? :<
