What is fan art?
Fan art is any artwork featuring characters from the anime and manga we love! It’s how many artists begin drawing and a great way to make friends in the community!
Fan art can be created in any medium. Traditional mediums include colored pencils, markers, paint, crayons, and more. Phones, tablets, and computers can be canvases as well with digital fan art! No matter how you create your art, we can’t wait to see it!
