Project Educate: Defining Fan FictionProject Educate: Defining Fan FictionProject Educate: Defining Fan Fiction by rydi1689
Hello lovely deviants and welcome to another article for our Fan Art Project Educate Week!
This time I bring you a part of Fan Art that is as important as Fan Art itself but gets little to no recognition. It's about time we all do our best to put an end to this situation and make Fan Fiction accessible to everyone and enjoyable by all.
Fan Fiction - What is it?
If we were to make a definition similar to the one I gave you for fan art: Fan Fiction includes those written artworks that are based on or contain material such as characters, settings, concepts or universes in general that are copyrighted to someone else other than the artist creating said Fan fiction.
Another definition by Thefreedictionary.com is "Fan fiction (alternately referred to as fanfiction, fanfic, FF or fic) is a broadly defined term for fiction about characters or settings written by admirers of the original

Welcome to another article fellow deviants! I hope you're not tired about me already
We have a long week to go!
This time I bring you an art feature with artworks that have impacted me from my first deviantART experience till today! I'll add some words about why I love some of them
NessaandAike by lian-blackdream is still my top favourite deviation from the whole site! The way this work makes me feel is undescribable, just by glancing at it I can feel the cold winter breeze caressing my skin, and the warmth of the handsome hero that's close to me . It draws me in and makes me feel part of the artwork.
(Though the work is under Manga and Anime it is fan art of Ragnarok Online).
The Boy Who Lived by TheHouseOfVin is a work that I found out today while browsing, but I am sure it'll be a difficult fan artwork to forget. It sums in one deviation Harry's achievements and h

Project Educate: Fan Art as Emoticons!What is the difference between a smiley and an emote?Project Educate: Fan Art as Emoticons! by TommyGK
"The Emoticon is a combination of different letters and punctuation. The Smiley is displayed as an Image.
But nowadays Smileys are also known as Emoticons.
Both are used to display different moods, actions and situations.

Read the interesting history of emoticons! http://krissi001.deviantart.com/journal/Project-Educate-The-History-of-Emoticons-214239675

My real name is Genesis, I have 23 years and am a 4th semester student in the career of Plastic Arts> Painting. I chose this career because I want to improve my technique of drawing and color (I have learned many interesting things), to become a professional artist. I also want to find my own artistic style, find out what kind of artist I am meant to be.
The name Pascua was a nickname adopted at a forum of Xiaolin Showdown series, in honoring Pascualina, of the diary. Later I decided to use this nickname for myself, along with Tanya that is the name of one of my female characters in Armada Transformes, created in the same forum. Currently, I have a character that is my fictional version and is named Pascua
I have 5 years on DA, starting on November 16, 2009 and this year will have six years. It was the best thing that ever happened to me in life, including being admitted to a university dedicated to the arts (Traditional Arts, Audio-Visual Arts, Dance, Theater, Music and History.). With both, have changed my perspective on the arts and has allowed me to meet many interesting things, important aspects of the art that I had not considered in the past. I realized that art is more than just draw cartoon characters.
In these six years in DeviantArt, I have made many friends (As: sangheili13, lauraypablo, Starshot-seeker, Luzbel-Andrea, Artemisito), who have taught me many things about the site and have made my experience very fun and rewarding. I found two groups, one of which helped me discover that I can give selfless help to others. These groups are Ayu-dA and communityrelations, I am the Director in the first. However, I have learned that give support to DA Community goes beyond just that give support about the technical side of the site. It means always being there for the community, sharing artistic resources and perform special projects to help users/artists to grow as such. It involves knowledge, motivation, charisma and community spirit. And the main motivation should be the COMMUNITY.
If you want to know more about my experience in DA, I invite you to read My DeviantArt Story
My favourite type of art is Fan Art!! . So all my DA gallery is full of all kinds of Fan Art, because I dedicated part of my life to this art. In fact, the Fan Art allowed me to enter the world of art and improve greatly my style of drawing and coloring. Perhaps is not considered by some as a way of original art because I'm drawing the characters that belong to someone else, but I have also created my own characters and I think the Fan Art is also important in our artistic growth. So I want to be a Community Volunteer ( ^) in the Fan Art Gallery!! .
I usually give a favorite to those Fan Arts of my favorite characters and series such as Cell DBZ (I love me this bad boy), Hot Shot and Starscream of Armada Transformers, My Little Pony, Disney movies, etc. I also give a favorite to pieces of art, of other categories, that called my attention

THE FAN ART EMPIRE
Fan Art is one of many expressions of art that allows to a fan do homage to Those stories and favorite characteres copyrighted by others. We all know that entails working with material That is not ours, because many Fan Artists we do a copyright sacrifice and great effort to Contribute to the community With These wonderful pieces of fan art, Which in fact are Regarded as true treasures.
The Fan Art community has grown a lot since its inception and hope that this continues, that appear more talented and wonderful artists who show a willingness to share their knowledge and experiences to help this great empire to continue growing more.

communityrelations was created up with the name of Artist Relations and the team members were called Gallery Directors. Later in October 2008, the group name is officially changed to the name that we all know and the GDs they became in Gallery Moderators (Currently, Community Volunteers).

In this section present deviations within the Fan Art category of any character, and in traditional style or digital, for more variety. My goal is to help others to his art becomes known on the site.

This activity comes from the "Art Challenges". As the name suggests, these are challenges of all kinds of art, a specific topic, at that the organizer considers appropriate for an artistic challenge. They are completely free themes. Another feature of the Art Challenges is that not competing for a prize.
