Since then, I’ve opened up to the possibility of me being a bi, and now I feel bad for what I used to think.
I’m still a fan of this shipping. And I have seen people handle it amazingly well. Like Lovestruck Derpy. Or the Doctor Whooves radio drama where Derpy is just The Doctors assistant. But I think the fandoms art community got a little too crazy about them. Anytime a new Doctor Whooves blog is created people ask where Derpy is. Only to find out this artist was using a different pony to team up with The Doctor. This leads to some pretty stupid reactions out of the people trying to ask the character stuff. Like accusing The Doctor of cheating on Derpy. Which is just stupid because they’re not even real things. And as much as I love Derpy and Whooves together, I just wish people could break off from that and give other characters a chance to shine.
Like most, I used to dream that my OC, Sock-N-Socks, would become a blog with a few hundred followers and get to interact with lots of other blogs. As a strove toward that dream, dealing with feeling rejected and ignored, I came to realize that a blog I had originally started as an escape from depression and stress was becoming a job.
The fact is I love drawing ponies. It’s such a fun, easy cartooning style and I like creating pony characters stories - especially Sock-N-Socks. If the fandom will never love her as much as I do, so be it. I’m gonna keep drawing her. I know she’s the best pony in socks alive and that’s enough for me :)
I’ve wanted to start a pony blog that would deal with Asks and reviews but I’m nervous I may disappoint my followers if I take to long to actually post anything since digital art isn’t my strong point, or if I use vectors to much.
Now it’s not that I don’t like him, I do, plus I love the other blogs and fan animations the mod of Ask-thecusaders has made, but I just don’t get all the hype about Button. Most of the jokes and gags in his cartoons involve him screaming, whining, crying and often yelling out “MMOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!”, with very little variation. Now I get that kids do cry and whine a lot, but this character does it constantly over and over and it gets really, really, really annoying. I don’t get why this character gets so much popularity over doing the same joke repeatedly. Do people just like seeing little kids cry all the time? It just doesn’t make sense.
I have the feeling that Button has the potential to be a great character, I just wish he would stop whining over every signal little thing!
Let’s face it, family friendly stuff doesn’t sell anymore, people don’t want that. They only want gore, horror and sex now a days
He’s just so adorable and the mod seems really nice.
Is it that my art is too simple? Is it that my commission prices are too high? I just don’t know.
