What 'Code Geass' Fan Artist Creayus Can Teach Us About Fan Art

5 Things 'Code Geass' Fan Artist Creayus Can Teach People About Fan Art

What makes an artist unique is the honesty they put in their art. Creayus's love for C.C. just demonstrates how passionate she feels towards this particular character.


To an artist, there is inspiration everywhere. Even artists can inspire us. If there is one artist that truly inspires me, that will be Creayus, a well-known Japanese fan-artist who is notable for her amazing fan art of C.C., the main female character of the anime "Code Geass." Growing up as an artist, many professors and teachers have instructed me to stay away from fan art and at the same time, they downgrade and look down on fan art by saying that fan art does not encompass the crucial parts of a creative process. But by looking at Creayus's works, I have learned many things about fan art that my professors and teachers are wrong about.

And here are the things of what I have learned from Creayus's fan art.

1. Honesty in fan art

What makes an artist unique is the honesty they put in their art. Creayus's love for C.C. just demonstrates how passionate she feels towards this particular character. She has drawn C.C. in various outfits, even outfits from movies, anime, and video games.

2. Devotion in fan art

Creayus draws C.C. in most of her artwork so far and she doesn't stop! Her devotion to C.C. rewards her so much support from her loyal followers, who continuously comes back for more of her C.C. fanart.

3. Evolution in fan art

Comparing to Creayus's fan art of C.C. many years back, I am surprised to see how much her fan art has evolved! C.C. is more refined and more gorgeous than before!

4. Originality in fan art

Whoever says there is no originality to fan art, they are so wrong. The way Creayus has colored C.C.'s green hair is so original! Her hair is not just a plain imitation of lime green hair like in the anime. Her hair is colored in an emerald green color adorned with shiny highlights that makes us adore her hair even more! In other words, Creayus has a very original art style!

5. Value in fan art

Growing up as an artist, I have so many professors and teachers that have downgraded and looked down on fan art. But Creayus teaches me that fan art does get recognition by many people, even by the same animation studio that works on her favorite anime show. Thanks to her amazing artwork, Creayus is able to work for Sunrise, the Japanese animation studio who works on "Code Geass," and develop a picture drama for "Code Geass" called "Masked Confession Competition." She gets to draw C.C. at work too! How cool is that?

As an artist as well as a zealous supporter of fan art, Creayus not only motivates me to draw fan art, but she also teaches me that everyone should not be ashamed of drawing fan art of their favorite characters at all! If you see your favorite character as a muse, don't be afraid what others think, just go right ahead and draw it regardless!

7 Things Every Real Taylor Swift Fan Knows Will 100 Percent Happen On TS7



On April 13th, Taylor Swift posted on her Instagram a picture with the caption "4.26"... since then, every post since has had the same caption, and fans have been theorizing ever since.

1. It's going to be very different from "Reputation"


Looking at her current pastel Instagram theme, it is very, very different than dark, mysterious vibe from her "Reputation" days.

2. This will be one of Taylor's happiest albums yet


Taylor has stayed out of the media for the most part since the release of "Reputation", and I believe that she's enjoyed her time, focusing on her music, friends, family, and relationships during this downtime.

3. This album will reflect on her childhood


In 2016, in an interview with Glamour magazine, Taylor revealed that she was bullied in school, and her mom would often take her to T.J.Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry in order to cheer her up. On April 14th, she posted a picture of jewelry, including opal. Also, one could say that her current Instagram profile picture has an opal tone to it. These could be hints to Taylor tapping into her childhood for her newest album. Oh, and she dressed up as a "childhood hero" for a New Year's Eve party...

4. ...But also focus on moving forward


From her fresh, pastel Instagram theme to the flowers, butterflies, and overall springy vibes, Taylor has an airy, happy vibe that yells fresh, new life. Perhaps the album will also focus on her rising above everything from "Reputation" and all of the new things in her life.

5. It's going to have hidden eggs placed within the lyrics


All Swift fans know that Taylor loves to play games and create puzzles for us to figure out leading up to album releases. Why does the album itself have to be any different? Hopefully TS7 will have hidden gems in it as well...

6. Jack Antonoff and Max Martin will be back


Jack and Max have been with Taylor since "1989," and I don't think they're going anywhere. If they made it through the sound shift between Swift's 5th and 6th albums, they can work with whatever new ideas Taylor comes up with.

7. If the old Taylor is dead, I think TS7 will be when the new Taylor fully emerges


There's been some butterfly emojis and imagery flying around on Taylor's Instagram, and in a way, I think TS7 will be Taylor emerging from her cocoon of sorts into a butterfly. "Reputation" showed that she was capable of change, and this new album will show a more mature version of Taylor.

Chances are all of these are 100% wrong... but hey, it's fun to theorize while we wait for her new single/album to drop on April 26th.
