Commissions! Fanart or only Originals?

Commissions have certainly been a saving grace for me so for in this pandemic. Sometimes people are just looking for a certain species of animal but many times people want their favorite character recreated. I’ve done fanart ranging from reimaginings of children book illustrations to video game characters. Below is an image of my version of Flick from Animal Crossing.

He is sold ( a past commission naturally), and the customer plus their recipient were quite happy with it. I’m proud of it but at the same time it *is* fanart and I’m not sure how I feel about that. It won’t be my last (in fact email me any commission ideas you have lol!) but I wonder how much I should let it be a part of my business?
