There was a fairly small Teletubby fandom in the early 2000s that could have expanded into a brony-like fandom if the chans, forums, Facebook and other venues had existed or been as well-known and fandoms themselves were less secretive.
Well...... a LOT of people like them. Though, I'd say this is mostly a time sensitive thing. The third season just began airing the other day, and a lot has been building up to that over the last few months. So yeah, you happened to arrive at the peak of this particular spike of pony fanart.
Just life I suppose. I had university and jobs to contend with my time, I also tend to be able to only focus on one hobby at a time. A benefit of taking a break, is that I can magically draw better with little effort compared to what I could before. Right now I am working on anatomy ^^ 2011 2012
That would be pretty optimistic. Well, if we also combine its ease of creation with the return it gets, a lot of people see that they can poop out an easy pony and get more attention for it than making something original.
Somehow, as much as I despise humanity, I always tend to be optimistic about people's motives. As in, I want to see the good in them and tend to think that in the end they always had good motives, or an excuse for whatever bad behaviour they've shown. I guess it is my way of coping with the crazy naked monkeys that inhabit and 'rule' this planet. Yet, now that you've extended your views of the situation I do fear I have to agree with you that it seems a fairly plausible explanation.
