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 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.
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:
