What's the deal with fan-made (parody) comics and animation? 2021-01-22 08:16:52
Hi. I am curious about this. I've seen a bunch of fan-made cartoons and comics videos on YouTube, and a lot of it is parody material. What's that about?
Are people running out of original ideas? People don't know how to be original anymore? Or is it just easier to create something based on something they know?
I'm not trolling. I'm genuinely curious. Maybe I sound a bit hypocritical- I am friends with an indie cartoonist and animatior on YouTube. He has a series of Pac-Man/Super Mario Bros. cartoons and comics on YouTube. His videos are different than some of other other video game-based parody videos I have seen because he's actually telling a story with this crossover series of his.
I thought about making fan-made cartoons and comics, possibly creating parodies, but I'll rather do something original.
Please help. Thank you.
