** Dragon Garrow Lee, another fan mangaka who was officially brought into Dragon Ball to pen ''Manga/DragonBallThatTimeIGotReincarnatedAsYamcha'', draws a considerable amount of fan pieces regarding his favorite character, Yamcha, along with other franchises on his [[https://twitter.com/dragongarowlee Twitter]].

Sometimes writers, artists, and other people involved in a work take to their series so much that they make their own {{Fan Work}}s. These are non-canon or at most semi-canon, though fans tend to take them more seriously than fan works created by ordinary fans. The quality of the fan works varies, but many are rather in-character or on-model thanks to the person's experience with the series.

There are various mangakas that [[https://www.ranker.com/list/manga-artists-who-have-drawn-hentai/ranker-anime started in hentai before making SFW mainstream works]], but some of them continue making {{hentai}} fanworks (some of them SpinOff of their own series) under different pen names and {{doujinshi}} circles.

His final ''STC'' comic is a DistantFinale set at minimum ten years after anything either in ''Sonic the Comic'' or ''Sonic the Comic Online''. The comic, amongst other things, made [[spoiler:Amy and Tekno being together]], all-but AscendedFanon.

On Twitter, his [[https://mobile.twitter.com/stjepansejic/status/1084708439270612992?lang=en fan art]] of [[VideoGame/TombRaider Lara Croft]] meeting ComicBook/WonderWoman is a hit.
* Dan [=DeCarlo=] created the signature ''ComicBook/ArchieComics'' art-style but he also drew fanart of the characters. Quite a sum of it was NSFW art about Betty and Veronica.
* Mauricio Herrera, one of the creators of ''ComicBook/{{Diablo|Chile}}'' made a career of his own after he left the comic book as a freelance artist as [[https://www.deviantart.com/el-grimlock El-Grimlock]], where he also created {{Fan Art}}s of different characters, some of them included illustrations of his previous works on ''Diablo'' and ''TabletopGames/MitosYLeyendas'', with the former he even made [[http://el-grimlock.deviantart.com/art/Diablo-Batman-65086034 a crossover]] between Franchise/{{Batman}} and Diablo.
* ''ComicBook/TheFilth'' has an in-universe example, where Secret Original mentions that Moog Mercury, one of the writers for ''Status Quorum'', has been creating pornographic AU stories featuring the characters.

* David Gaider:
** After leaving Creator/BioWare, David Gaider published a short story about Dorian Pavus from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition''. Since he no longer works for the developer, it's technically fanfic, but most fans regard it as canon since Gaider was Dorian's writer.
