Am I allowed to include fan art topics in my art idea app?
posted 3 years ago
I have created an Android app, and a Discord bot, named "Art Prompts". The object of the project is to give artists inspiration by short prompts.
I'm currently working to create Premium categories for the app and bot - categories of prompts the users have to pay to access.
Can I create a Fan Art category as one of the premium ones? For example Draw Bill Cipher in Weirdmageddon. (Gravity Falls), or Draw Mercy bringing Widowmaker back to life?
Is there any trouble I could face by implementing this idea, due to the trademarked names, or the copyrighted IPs?
EDIT: The apps offer 6 free categories of prompts (Places, Animals, People, Fantasy, Sci-fi, Horror). The only difference between the prompts in the free categories and the premium categories is the topic (and the price, obviously).
The apps don't show any images inspired by the prompts - only the sentences themselves."
