Can I sell fan art as prints?

deviantART does not allow the sale of copyrighted characters or works.

While artists can upload fan art as a deviation in their gallery, they may not make fan art available for purchase as a print without violating copyright and trademark protections.

Fan art that does include copyrighted and/or trademarked materials require formal written permission from the original copyright/trademark owner.

You may be seeing Fan Art available as prints that are clearly violations. Please note that images submitted through standard print accounts are not checked by our quality control staff until someone orders the print. At this time, the images that violate the prints guidelines (found in the FAQ) will be rejected. The buyer will be informed and not charged for the rejected print.

We appreciate inquiries and reports for specific images and prints if there is some question as to whether or not they violate our policies. Please include links in your correspondence with us.
