Hi!! I had this question a long time ago, but I see some poeple doing it, so I would like to really know if someone knows about it. The question is: Are we allowed to sell fan-art? I see some people drawing characters like sailor moon, batman, etc etc...
It is legal?
Thank you for the help!

Yes, you're allowed to sell fanart. Whether you decide to sell it or not, it depends on your own opinion as an artist.
Asking for Fanart
This is where things get a bit confusing. You are allowed to ask for fanart from artists based on popular characters (Disney, Anime, Television, etc).
This is the only time it is appropriate to copy a character design fully. If you're unsure if you're allowed to ask for a fanart of a certain thing, do not hesitate to contact a moderator! The lines are pretty blurry.
Also, make sure to consult an artist before asking for fanart, because artists have their own views on doing fanart for commissions! Some do not believe drawing a copyrighted character for profit is acceptable. .
