Yeah I was away for a year and decided to check out the deviations people submitted...it seems like every row has a pony or something referencing a country. What exactly have I missed here? Sorry if this is obvious to others, I have not exactly been keeping up with the trends~~

Don't worry, it'll be replaced with something you will most likely dislike soon enough.

Bronies and Hetalia.

10 years ago it would have been Teletubbies and Pokemon, and 5 years ago it was High School Musical and Inuyasha, who knows what the next big kiddie show and anime fandoms will be.

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 ^^

As a brony, I can confirm that this is pretty true. :lol:

But they also happen to be really fun to draw, as well.

My favorites have to be crossover ponies. It's cool to see what elements people put into a ponified character.

Beware of that.
If I was making ponies, I'd make a crossover dick pony.

For some weird reason, I took the word dick as in a private eye. Thus, Dick Tracy needs a pony.

For some reason I took that as a reference to the song, private eye by alkaline trio.

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.

ForeverTeaTime Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
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. :(

Easy views makes sense.

But I share your fault. I try my hardest to find the best in others even when it's clear to me that it's not so.

Yeah, it makes a lot of sense, unfortunately.
I don't think I'd be willing to go that far for 'easy views' though. I think I'd feel dirty, like I was some kind of whore. :P

They're memes.

My Little Pony: FIS is responsible for the ponies, and, I assume, Hetalia for the countries.
