    Well, fictional characters aren't people.Porn isn't prohibited but its distribution is restricted. The reason for child pornography to be ilegal is to protect children because they don't have the capacity to consent and therefore are abused when involved in any such activity.A fictional character isn't a person and can't be abused by drawing them in any sexual activity whether they are adult characters or children, it is disgusting, but I doubt it can be considered a crime, however I don't know the content of the laws that can be applied to this case so I have no idea how can they be interpreted by that particular legal system.I would also argue that "drawings" can't be considered "pictures", they are (or can be, at least) the fruit of the imagination of the artist, but since they are not testaments of any actual people or situations, they can't be considered evidence of anything, much less of a crime.

    I'm not sure I want to be the first one to comment on this.I get that art and pornography are a blurred line away and mostly on a case by case basis, but eewww. If the guy gets his jollies off doodles or not, I hardly think that in itself should be something to arrest over, the prior arrest is definitely what sets it off. Not sure what to hope for in this guys case.
