51% Fanart love
49% OC love
It's seriously that close so that's why I just barely picked Fanart. If you'd given the opportunity to put a "I love em equally" button I woulda clicked that one in a heartbeat XD

Both for commissions (since you don't want to cut your potential on that front) but I'll have to choose OC since you really seem to want to expand your world that you've built. And I want to see it too.

Original characters go better with stories, in my opinion. ^^
Otherwise, I prefer fanart.

I don't like fan art, because there's always the fear that I'll think of the art when I play the game or watch the anime that the character is from.

My problem with fan art is sometimes that character feels as though it is spammed on the internet. *cough* Gardevoir *cough*

Well usually original characters are what the artist wants to see but doesn't exist yet so I'd say just that makes it at least a bit better
Plus, licensed characters that are worthy of fan art really are just well designed OC's

fan art because the characters are more recognizable, and there's a likely chance that someone already knows that character and thinks she/he's hot, so when they see a BBW/BBM depiction of that character, it's a win/win.

I generally prefer original characters.  I love seeing people's unique creations and creativity.

Not that there's anything wrong with fanart either.  Some days you just want to see a fat Jesse from Pokemon or whatever.

Both are great when I like the art style. You could draw my favorite characters or characters that I hate, and I could never complain because I like your style.

I like both but I like fanart a tiny bit more.

This is because fan art is part of a fandom's expression of fanatiscism.

It is also nice to see characters in new ways new mediums or new art styles.

I like both and I love your oc's especially Mayumi, but if I had to choose only one I would go with fan art.

If it was an option, Id choose both. However, If one over the other, I prefer original characters. With Licensed characters, one must create a certain situation for them that fits the aspects of their plot and personality. One wouldnt put a girl who is tomboyish in a frilly dress with her acting giddy as if she always liked it despite canon stating they hated frillyness. With original characters, if they own the char, then they can adjust the situation or the character as needed, while still staying true to the canon. Take the tomboy example. If the tomboy is your oc, then the author can put her in a frilly dress if they wish, and put that the character may deny it but in secret likes girly things. In short, I prefer ocs as the creator has mlre free reign over them than a licensed or other persons oc.

Both is not an option for this very reason. I don't want people to choose a middle ground. I want to know which is just a liiiittle more preferred. >:3

Because, at the end of the day, if someone does Spider-Gwen I'm going to prefer that over something else.

NO, I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM!  WHY YOU ASKIN?

Original characters. I blatantly refuse taking comissions or trades asking me to do fanart of a character, mainly to support the creation and development of originals instead.

Why is this something people have to pick one over the other on? 
Can't people have the choice of appreciating good art and characters, licensed or not? v:
Like, there's plenty of copyrighted characters I love.
and ones I never wanna see.
Same for original characters.
...
I think I see a point in a different conversation where this will be used <:v

People have to pick one over the other because I'm curious on what people really think. Most people are gonna lean just a little heavier on one side than the other. V:
