The PDFs will be sent out within 24 hours of your donation (generally in the evening) and will only be available until the end of May.

We have also sent out a complementary copy of this PDF to our frequent and high donator list so if you've been with us a while helping us out, do check out your e-mail (we send to the paypal e-mail).

If there are any leftovers after the cons we'll probably sell them online :) We have done Mexican cons in the past, but our next isn't planned for a few years.

I did. ._. lol I still don't get it though. Maybe it's just cuz people are more prone to pick up/buy a fancomic cuz of all the pictures than they are to grab a fanfiction book...

I dunno. *shrug*

Oh, you mean fandom wise not legal wise. Fanfiction is pretty easy to find on the net, even good fanfiction. I have never not been able to go anywhere and find something I wanted to read. I have had a much harder time with fancomics in terms of the being any sort of quality or interest to me... or even just finding one that the author is continuously making. I don't think I've found another english zelda fancomic with enough pages to fill a proper book before let alone one I'd actually want to buy.

Unless you have a lot of dedicated followers it's a pretty hard product to sell. I do own some fanfiction books though, where the writer hired an illustrator to illustrate it for them. Going to be perfectly honest when I say I picked it up for the pretty art inside since I can not even read the Japanese they're written in ^^;

Most of the fan material I buy, I buy at conventions. I actually make very little sales online and most of the people who buy my Demon Road stuff are fans who are trying to donate to help the comic since the comic is free to read online and all these pages will make it to the web in their own time.

I might suggest teaming up with an artist friend to do a nice cover and a few illustrations and taking it to the artist ally of a local convention. Just keep in mind that different AAs have different rules regarding the sale of fanfiction, thought many I see will accept it as long as it is illustrated. I don't know the legalities of written material as opposed to visual so that would be worth looking into first.

I'm sorry, but you made a tiny mistake on how he holds the arrow/string, he holds the string with two of his fingers, they should not hold the string. Either from that I loved the drawing :)

He is holding the arrow wrong. You hold it with three or normally two fingers. [link] You hold it like that before you are going to release aswell. And I don't mean to be rude, so don't take it to heart (some do >-<). I hope you understood what I meant now .o.

Hey! I just thought I'd explain what's happening the image as I drew it haha. He's not actually drawing the bow to release it, he's holding it very casually with no intent of actually firing it (as firing it would result in him shooting his foot or the ground at point blank). The string isn't being pulled back, it's not being aimed and he's not looking at where he's firing XD This is how I hold my bow when I'm just standing around.

Not taking it personally, just letting you know what's going on in the image. : ) Cheers!

Er, you sure this is the best idea? Companies are never too keen on things like this...
Reply

DemonRoad Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013
We don't sell fan art products that the original companies do not approve of. It has been stated on several occasions at cons that Miyamoto encourages seeing the promotion of nintendo products through fan works in the artist allies and exhibitors. There are many companies and creators that also support this so long as it is not "boot leg" type materials. This is why we don't sell prints and such of any of our works that contain characters from companies that do disprove of this sort of work.

That's interesting! I never knew exactly how selling fan work... well, worked.
How do you know which companies are okay with it, and which aren't?

:icondemonroad:
DemonRoad Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013
You have to do your research on it if there's a piece you want to sell, it's generally not too hard to find a company's stance on fanart and fan productions (usually in regards to artist allies, doujinshi and conventions). There's no list of companies that say yay or nay though most American produced things are usually a nay, especially regarding disney and disney owned properties.
