lmao sweetmm you didn't have to put my shit up there though but thank you

WARNING! Ramblings that go beyond the scope of this thread and no one will care about

I'm so glad this is a topic! I can't say I follow any particular phan artist,and I'm too lazy to link personal faves, but I'm constantly blown away by how much talent and creativity there is in the phandom. The works of art that I see on tumblr actually look so legit. Obviously, that isn't unique to D&P's fanbase; of course there are bigger, mainstream fandoms who are likely to have more artists as participants. But I wonder if this is consistent among other YT fandoms. It seems that D&P, in particular, attract a crowd that have a propensity for creating, and then they encourage it with their past art contests, their Tumblr tags, TABINOF, and now with TATINOF.

D&P have basically been the subjects of my art for the past year, so I guess I am a "phan artist". Something that's always stuck with me was in the latest Tumblr tag when a set of lovely watercolor paintings came up, and Dan wondered what it was about him that inspired people to draw or paint him like that. I feel like I can't articulate the answer to that, but I know there is something I really enjoy about drawing and painting them. It would be cool to read any other IDB phan artist's take on that, though. I know there are a few.

Finally, back at You-know-where, there was a brief convo about who was more difficult to draw: Dan or Phil . Most people said Phil, but I actually have waaay more difficulty capturing the details in Dan's face than with Phil. I guess Phil's features are a bit more distinct, so it's easier for me to translate it into a way that obviously reads as Phil, while with Dan, there are so many soft, subtle lumps and folds to his face that I'm constantly having to go back and make adjustments before I feel it looks like Dan.

ETA: also ambery made danma and sexy philpa

I feel the same about drawing Dan, i'm never satisfied with my d+p drawings because dan never looks like dan :cry:

I've got a soft spot for 'parent' phanart. Can't find my faves back through google / tumblr . Why didn't I save those pictures :(
That's it, I surrender. I'm creating a phanart folder, one terabyte should at least serve my archiving needs until the end of this week right?

Guess i'l just have to put their real child under spoiler until my art stash reaches a respectable size.
Image Ah them feels
Finding my own inarticulate prose
Weirding out strangers and laughing at those
Jaundiced and jaded, postured and posed
Not that we’re special it’s just that we’re
Closing in on a place where we might get to be
Living real people regularly

Damnnnn Danielle.....back at it again with the pretty girl makeover.

I really want to see Dan and Phil get a complete female makeover from a good make up/hair/fashion artist and put it in a video.

Danielle and Philicia, anybody?

To the bolded: Yes, absolutely, but not in the way that the Phandom does it. For one, YTer fandoms that far exceed the Phandom in creative output are LPer oriented. Obviously, more creative people will be drawn to a creator that celebrate an experience with a game then a creator who talks about themselves. That said, because D&P are vloggers and not gamers, it really is curious how so many people are inclined to create things about them. You really don't see much fanart for other vloggers at a similar scope.

What I think draws in these "phan artists" is basically the same reason any other person would create fanart for anything: To show appreciation for their subject (in other words, to get noticed) and to interact with the fandom in any way they can (which would explain why there's so much art for popular AUs). In a way, this could go back to the "why are D&P is popular?" discussion.

Anyway, to make my post more in line with this thread: I love phanart, but I don't really follow any fanartists. I mostly like looking at stylistic, abstract works rather than anything realistic, but that's just me.

Here are some recent art that I liked a lot:

Also, not to backseat mod or whatever, but when posting art, can y'all link back to the original post pls?

Another favorite is http://bowtiewizard.tumblr.com/tagged/phan Seconding crash[] about linking to the original post. Or embed from the artist's Twitter if they have one so it will link automatically.

ok so I totally legally downloaded photoshop and I've been working on things to get the hang of it, but what I made is really bad and not as amazing as any phan art by a longshot but I just made it because I thought the concept was cute and I don't know where I should post it. TL;DR do shitty photoshop gifs count as phan art? ok thanks bye

Here's a set I saw on phanfic, which is very cute.

It's quite long, so I've stuck it under a spoiler tag.
