"What is fan art?"
Fanart is non-profit artwork done by fans of the characters of favorite TV shows, books, or,in this case, comic books.

"What is CFAB?"
CFAB is a collection of links for people who create or simply enjoy comic book fanart and archive it in a gallery on their website. CFAB is not a fanart gallery, it archives only the links to fanart galleries.

"Won't you get sued?"
Hopefully not. As fan-artists, we acknowledge that the characters we draw are not ours, and that we are not making any money off of them. The comic book companies, out of the kindness of their hearts, tolerate it.

"Do you link manga/anime fanart archives?"
Nope. Find out why here.

"Where can I get my fanart archived?"
While we do not archive any fanart on CFAB, we do provide links to fanart galleries that accept fanart submissions. Whether or not art is archived on a web gallery is specifically indicated in each entry of our links archive.

"Where can I get an honest critique of my fan art?"
Why, at....

1)Try the new message board Artistic Critique. A little slow right now, but it's picking up momentum.
2) The Gallery, a mailing list that gives you the opportunity to post your fan art for critiques and reciprocate the favor to fellow fan-artists. Make sure to read the rules first.
3)A comic book convention. Keep a lookout for these treasure troves of constructive criticism. Guest pro artists are usually amenable to veiwing and critiquing art. Be sure to have only 5-10 samples in a nice, easy-to-view portfolio. Too shy? Then try...
4) Us! Quin and Glockgal are both fellow fanartists, and if you're looking for a critique one-on-one (and if you think we're good enough to critique your work) then by all means e-mail and ask.

What We're Looking For--a checklist.

1)A fan art archive.
It can be part of a bigger site, or a site completely dedicated to fan art alone.
It can be an archive of your personal work or a collection of various artists.
2)Comic book fan art.
It must have, somewhere in the archive, comic book fan art. Having original characters, non-comic book characters are okay, as long as there is some(3+ pieces) comic book fanart located somehwere on you site.
3)"Westernized" fan art.
Yeehawww dawgie! No, we don't mean cowboy art only. ;p
We want archives that are not exclusively manga/anime. There are enough hubsites out there to take care of the manga sites, and we don't intend to become another one.
However, manga-esque interpretations of "westernized" comic book characters is quite acceptable.
4)Slash/hentai fan art.
Very accepatable, and quite encouraged! *Glockgal is shameless*
5)A Resource Site
You site must be one of three things:
  • A mailing list, message board or webring
  • A how-to-draw,tutor,advice site
  • A fan gathering site--this means links pages, communities anything fan-based
Of course, the last rquirement is quite broad and will be dealt with on an individual basis between archivist and the CFAB web-mistresses.
If you have a Resource page, submit here.
6)Linking to CFAB.
Once you are posted in CFAB, it is highly suggestable that you also link to CFAB. This, of course, is your choice, but...well...you know.... You can find out how to link here.
