Im going to scream if i see any more my little pony fanart. Its all over deviantart!
When searching "my little pony" in the search bar, 599896 results were available; almost every time i refresh on "newest artworks", there is atleast one my little pony fanart on the first page alone; and simply by searching the word "pony", the front page holds only ONE result that isnt my little pony related. Out of a total 24 artworks.
Before i continue, i would just like to apologize to those of my watchers who are indeed fans. I get that is a personal thing, and everyone are fans of different things, and i respect that some people like it. However, i don't understand the degree of its popularity, as surely it is a KIDS show. Aimed at little girls. I mean, COME ON!
I can't get myself excited over seeing i have a new deviation in my notification box, of little ponies in rainbow colours all drawn exactly the same. I don't see the artistic qualities in it! I would much rather see someones attempt at animating their OWN cartoon, or designing their OWN completely original characters.
I've never been the biggest fan of.. well.. fanart, to a certain extent. Not saying i dont like it, on the contrary, i definately love to see art following recent movies or my favourite novels. However, its not my favourite type of art... the best art comes straight from the artists mind.
It wouldnt be so bad for me if the whole of deviantart wasnt flooded with this art. For a comparison depicting just how "flooded" deviantart is, ive taken Harry Potter, a worldwide bestselling novel, a highly successful movie franchise consisting of 8 seperate films, AND the name of the main character in both. So you would think, its incredibly popular. And yet, after searching the words "harry potter" in the search bar, only 498,469 results were found, roughly 100,000 less than a cartoon show aimed at young girls who like pretty ponies, at least initially.
I wish deviantart would provide an option, whereby deviants can select certain keywords, which can be used to omit artworks from the site which we have no desire to see. Golly gosh, i am SO over it.
So, if you love my little pony, or dont, let me know what you think. I'd LOVE to hear it
Also, sorry if i offended, but i believe we are all entitled to our own opinion.
