What's popular/trendy right now?

Generic question, I know. I'm looking for anime, TV shows, and games. I'm going to be selling in the artist alley at a convention in July but I don't know what to make stuff of.

To clarify: These are not drawings. I make a lot of jewelry and pins, with basic shapes and designs such as bow ties (as a sort of symbol for doctor who).

Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire is probably going to be a big thing as well. Sailor Moon/SM Crystal might also be pretty popular at that time, so you might look into it too.

Fuck I love that show! I always aspired to be the Dakota Dude.

Draw what you want to draw. If you draw stuff just because it's popular and not because you're interested in drawing it, that'll come out in the work.

I don't draw, I make figures and jewelry/pins.

Have you ever been to a convention? That's what the entire artist alley is.

The fact that you're making money with somebody else's characters and creations.

PLEASE HELP! I have two questions:

1. I would like to sell in the Artists Alley as well... Can you guys please post some of your original characters designs so that I can re-draw them to sell and make money as I see fit? Shirts, posters, etc? You won't get any money out of my sales though... Sorry :/

2. If nobody here allows me use their Original Character designs, then can I just go on Deviant Art and use peoples work anyways? Do I have to have their persmission or can I simply call it Fan Art and sell it regardless?

If you guys could help me, it would be much appreciated! Can't wait to make some cash! Thanks!
