Does fanfiction count as art?
« on: June 19, 2013, 08:11:09 PM »
This is gonna sound really weird at first, but just go with it. I'm talking about something like... if a guy writes a story based off the Legend RPG or at the very least the characters (sort of like a Solo RP), would that count towards being put here, or is it just limited to picture!art?

Yeah, definitely not just limited to pictorial arts. A Legend-based story could be pretty cool.
Legend contributions: As Above, So Below (rewrite); Reap the Whirlwind, A Personal Touch, Kept Secret, Kept Safe (Professional Soldier); Combat Alchemist (extra track)

Do hand drawings, such as crayon, count as art?
For many people who put next to no thought or effort into it, it's hard to justify that it is, but if you do it well then hell yes!

Make the best story you can, and as long you care for it, I'm sure we will too,

It's an open section. I'd like to see it used by fans as well as our professional artists.
