BLEH by RedApropos BLEH by RedApropos
Let's face it, after drawing nothing but ponies every day for eight months straight, I've lost a bit of steam.

This doesn't mean I'm leaving the fandom or any dumb shit like that. I'm a brony for life! XD

I just hope our fandom hasn't already reached it's peak.

As a community, we bronies have achieved so many good things, and in so many ways, it's almost silly. We've set spectacular events in motion, seen many remarkable people come and go, and all the good we've done has been in the name of friendship (and ponies).

However, since I joined the fandom a little late, I was never here to see the rise of our fandom's titans. Instead, I made it just in time to see some of them move on.

Of course, I couldn't be happier for them!

Not to mention the unfathomable force of creative talent we bronies have to our name, we have more titans ready to rise (15 meter class, bitches)!

But this is about me... I'm not the energetic brony I was eight months ago when I started.
You know what that means...

CONVENTION TIME!!
TIME TO REKINDLE THE FIRE.
Bronycon, here I come!

I think it's a little depressing how some of them moved on. Not just the titans either, but small content creators who made great shit but moved on for whatever reason (look at WaWorl for example: www.youtube.com/user/IWaWorl/v…

So...is that a blunt?

Let's not forget that Red Apropos guy. He's pretty titan-ish.

Hey, our titans aren't all gone yet. We've still got a few up our sleeve. Amazing stuff is still coming along ^^^^^^^^



I see what you mean, though. A lot of the hugely popular stuff was way back in 2011 or 2012. Think 'rainbow factory', pretty much all of tombstone's stuff, etc.

However, what I'm seeing is a lot more intense creative stuff. Argodaemon and ferexes on youtube do awesome 3d animation. Aviators and Blackgryph0n have yet to peak. The art is always stunning (check out my 'mlp' collection).

I think what's happening is a wave. Our first wave: tombstone, glaze, a lot of good PMVers, all those guys, is beginning to fade. A new wave of artists is coming up.

Oh, thank God. I can't stand it when people make a big deal of out 'leaving' a fandom.

–"I just hope our fandom hasn't already reached it's peak."
I think I remember some people saying the same thing during the break between season 2 and 3; It's not peaked yet, we're just going a dry spell. Nothing more. S'all good!

My friend Taylor and I (irl) love to draw ponies, in our own way though. I may be "better" (according to Taylor) than her yet I still help her out on the eyes, ears, and what ever :3. Not trying to boast about myself o__O;;

Although some might leave, others will come and in their names they will take the rest of us to new heights!!

Dawg, I'd luv to go to a convention, dem janks look sweet. Tho' I dunno if I'd fit in... I luv all da Bronies, but I feel like I'd be an odd poneigh out, ha ha.

But still, hope dat if you do go to a convention, like Bronycon or Everfree Northwest, dat you have a gewd time and recharge yo inner-poneigh. You could also draw sum non-poneigh stuff, dat mite help you out too.

Oh...

And smokin' poneigh is awesome. I'd like to see mo' of smokin' poneigh.

Doing art trades with other bronies helps me. :3

...But I won't take this opportunity to hound you for an art trade...
Oh shit, I lied. Let's do an art trade!

Sometimes a break can help, too, before one burns out.

Still, enjoy the cons. :)

Get that fandom juice pumped right back into you.
And that may be an innuendo.

Oh god I wish I could join you! Same thing for me, though not QUITE as pate as you. I didn't get to see the rise of many artists, asks, and such, but I've seen them end their work and it makes me kind of sad. I do see new artists crop up, but it would be great to go to a con and get re-pumped!

Everfree Northwest? Isn't that in Seattle? You realize it costs a lot just to get a flight from here to out there is probably more expensive than the entire convention. :(
Bronycon on the other hand is closer, but you still need your passport and you're usually routed through YYZ (Toronto) and security checks take forever!
