Ive been told that artists on tumblr create characters that sometimes get selected to appear in cameos on the show.
Is this fan art, or is it an original character?
It is my understanding that FAN art is an individual artists interpretation of an already established character created by the original creators of the show.
While an original character is as an entity that has NOT been envisioned by the original creators, and is often implemented in FAN-FICTION, an individuals interpretation of the already established universe envisioned by the original creators.
You guys are the experts, i imagine. Please correct me. Original characters can not be considered "Fan art", even if they are desired to be a part of the fictional universe by the individual. Just because they are in someones fan fiction doesnt make them canon. to think so is just stupid, EVEN if they do end up getting chosen to make cameos. So only art of ESTABLISHED characters can be considered "fan art".
