Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The graphical image equivalent of Fan Fic. Can be anything from parody to portraits, technical drawings to erotic indulgences, to Chibis, to all of the above combined.
The most common Art Subjects are from animation (both North American cartoons and anime), since by nature animated characters are designed to be easy to draw. People with an interest in visual arts are also more likely to be animation fans than most others.
As for live action shows, it takes a certain level of artistic sophistication to depict real people with any degree of recognition. That doesn't stop anyone, however, and any visually interesting or unique show is likely to have some fan-made pieces floating around. Most often these are Speculative Fiction shows, since most fan art based on normal people is more about the actor or actress than the character. Then again, an entire Yahoo! Group is dedicated to celebrity likenesses made with the Poser and FaceGen applications.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })In Japan, the majority of Doujinshi are fan art in manga form.
Of course, there's always Rule 34.
And Chibis. Sometimes Chibi Rule 34.
Many Web Comics (particularly ones with recurring characters and good quality artwork) have dedicated fan art galleries on their websites, with images ranging from single characters to full-blown guest strips that don't fit in the archive.
See also Cosplay Fan Art, Rule 63 (for characters drawn as the opposite gender), Side-Story Bonus Art (official art), Self-Fanservice (when canonically unattractive characters look better in the Fan Art).

Homestuck, naturally, has a ton of fan art but what makes it unique is that it also has fan music, enough for an entire (free!) unofficial album which is a fraction of Tindeck's Homestuck genre.

A notorious historical example was a couple of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs fan-drawings found in an old cellar. They were found in Norway, dated to the late 30s, and were signed by a talented amateur artist called "A. H.". Mr. H. has been known to be a major fan of Disney, and he drew a couple other works too.

A remarkable amount for Kim Possible, encompassing crossovers, the KP cast in other roles, Kim and Ron in the future (in college, married, with kids, or just older) and a lot of Kim and her nemesis Shego in a lesbian relationship. Curiously, though Rule 34 obviously applies, the last often tends toward being cute rather than overtly sexual.

See Deviant Art here for a large amount of Fan Art (as well as a wide range of original pieces). Beware, though — Sturgeon's Law very much applies. Searching people's favorite artwork galleries can help a lot in finding good work, even more if you share the same taste as those people. If you like someone's artwork, consider checking their "favs".

Averted for Ctrl+Alt+Del: A fan once made a little CGI movie using Tim Buckley's characters for a school assignment and Buckley threatened him with a lawsuit because he wanted to save his artwork for The Animated Series. Oddly, there was an earlier post from Buckley saying it's okay to make fanart... Naturally this only pushes the hatedom to new heights of hilarity (usually involving a "Loss Edit").
