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.
