Fanart because that's usually what I look up. I still favorite good pictures of OCs, but since they're not usually what I'm looking for, I don't tend to find + favorite as many.

I'm more likely to look at fanart, honestly, because I am familiar with those characters. I like OCs, but I've never found myself too obsessed over someone else's.

I prefer the OC's, because I get to see the artists creativity a bit more than if they drew someone else's character.

Art is art, while is well done I have no problem with either.

I'll favorite anything that looks good to me, though I tend to come across fanart more often because I get so involved with fandoms.

Both if done well. I would fave more original art, but it's not as common or well done as fan art sadly. :hmm:

I prefer original art, I think there's more to be said when an artist can extract an idea from their mind they can truly call their own.

I tend to favorite both about equally. As long as the art work appeals to me in some way, I will favorite it. I tend to favorite Fan art more if I recognize the characters in it though.

I used to do lots of fan art. Not so much anymore. Once in a while.

For favorites, I won't do it because I like the character, I do it because I like the art. So it doesn't really matter. I have fanart from stuff I've never seen, or in some cases heard of, in my collections because I like the picture. Same for original work.

I'm way more concerned in the actual work of art than the contents.

Personally, I favorite originals more often because I like seeing what other artist's minds are like. However, sometimes I favorite fanart because either I'm in love with the character(s) or the artist did an amazing job. :)

I don't care; if I like the art it doesn't really matter if it's an original character or fanart, I even fave fanart of series I don't like because I liked the artwork. :shrug:

Some fan art looks incredible but it gets boring seeing the same thing over and over... I'm starting to lean toward original art more.

I think I'd prefer the original Artist's work. There's nothing wrong with Fan-Art, Fan-Art can be really nice and can be highly enjoyable to see a different approach to certain images., but the original is the original, you can't beat the original Artist's designs.

I have to say I like both.
Well, if the artist has a fandom that I share with them... XD
If not I like original works... Haha... XDD
But I'm okay with fanart. ^0^

Well, it depends. Bbut if you think about it, most art is either based off of something, or had certain ideas from something, but who cares, art is art. It either looks good, or you try again (Which is what I've come into that problem a bunch of times.) but I think both are just as important as one is to the other. c:

I prefer both as long as the artists gives something more, a piece of their soul in the picture. :D
