Is it REALLY a crime to draw humifications of the mane six with a skin colour other than white,small breasts,etc? Because it seems like it. Is there anything wrong with drawing slightly chubbier characters,etc(though I dislike it when people draw very very fat characters)???
See, it annoys me when people give characters big boobs, but not the body to go with them. They just kinda inflate their chest and call it good. From what I’ve noticed people with big chests are built more broadly.
Anyways. I see it as a sign of poor design if all your humanizations look similar. From a purely artistic standpoint, it just looks bland. Even casts of characters with predominantly white people variate between body type and skin tone.
The popular ones are just copypasta of Mane 6\Other Chars with small changes. Like “Hotblooded Pinkie” and “Ask Pinkamena” or “Lil’ Miss Rarity” and “Diamond Eyed Rarity” or “Epic RD” and “Blind RD” or “Drunk Celestia” and “Molestia”. Their artstyle and stuff are good, but damn, this is just stupid. What will be next time: “Mentally Retarded Twilight Eating Gamer Sexualized Pinkie”?!
Meanwhile original characters are staying on the side of the road, slowly rotting and stinking.

Hm. I both agree and disagree with this sentiment.
I do agree some ideas lack an original flair, and I’m uncertain why an entire ask blog needs to be devoted to the subject if it’s just a minor change rather than a huge twist on the character. And I feel like a lot of people try too hard with grimdark blogs to make them scary or ~2deep4u~, and just end up using tired cliches and scare tactics to try and make it work (not saying all grimdark blogs are bad; Researcher Twilight is one of my all-time favorite ask blogs because of how well the artist handles the concept without it seeming manipulative or pretentious).
On the other hand, you seem to have missed the reason why people make those blogs to start with. OCs can be tricky to work with sometimes. And not everyone has them…even then I know quite a number of really popular ask blogs starring OCs so I have no idea what you’re talking about.
But everyone who watches the show consistently knows the canon cast and their basic personality traits. It’s fun to see what happens when you change something about them in a way that plays off of their personality in an interesting way. The show can’t explore the characters in as complete and diverse a way as a fanon-created comic or ask blog can. And that’s the fun of it!

Here’s some irony for you:
Liberal pro-choicers may fight for civil rights and gay rights because we are all human and deserve the same rights. At the same time, they might try to dehumanize fetuses to a point where it’s “okay” to end a human life. The only reason they are really okay with this is because the fetus doesn’t LOOK human yet. Do humans have to look a certain way to deserve equal rights? Does a person deserve to be treated as less than human because they don’t have ten fingers and ten toes- YET?
Here’s the thing about that:
First of all, it’s not about dehumanizing the fetus. The thing is, while pro-choicers may compare the fetus to a parasite or acknowledge that in early development it’s a clump of cells, pro-lifers tend to compare fetuses to victims of the Holocaust, victims of slavery, and so on and so forth. That does not humanize the fetus - that dehumanizes everyone who experienced those tragedies. Comparing the suffering and struggles of people who are sentient and autonomous to something that cannot feel, is not aware in any form, does not think, does not even have the technical ability to suffer - that is dehumanizing. Many people who went through the Holocaust or had ancestors who were slaves have said that pro-lifers need to stop these comparisons, as they are hurtful and problematic, but pro-lifers continue on.
Pro-lifers literally speak over and act is as they know better than people who actually went through the Holocaust and slavery.
Not to mention, they inherently diminish their experiences because, guess what? Enslaved women had abortions. Pretending they didn’t is completely ignoring history and actually pretty racist.
Pro-lifers also tend to dehumanize the mother, posting pictures of a fetus magically outside the womb in order to remove the mother and her experiences from her own pregnancy. They say that she has an obligation to her fetus, but conveniently forget that she has any life and obligations outside of her pregnancy. She may have an obligation to work, school, family, already existing children. She may have to abandon all those obligations in order to save something that may make her unhappy and unhealthy.
If it’s between dehumanizing something that does not have the ability to be aware it’s being dehumanized, that cannot feel, that depends on another person for life, and dehumanizing a person who can experience pain and hardship while being sentient and autonomous, I would always choose the former. And hey, it doesn’t really matter, anyway. The personhood of the fetus is basically irrelevant, because whether it was a fetus or a fully-grown man dependent on my body, I would be allowed to try to remove either through minimal force. Because that’s how bodily autonomy works.
I know a lot of people are put off by the artist’s ideologies, but I wish people wouldn’t treat me like I killed a puppy just because I happen to like someone’s art.
It’s possible to like the art and dislike the artist (and vice versa).
So long as you don’t excuse the blatant racism just cause the art is good, then yes. I like her style but I could never bring myself to fav even her old artwork because of her behavior. However, I know people who do and still agree they aren’t for her ideals. I don’t hate them for this.
Also I’ve known plenty of wonderfully nice people that I simply am not fans of their style.
Pretty much this. She’s a great artist, she just
happens to use ponies to push her racism and white supremacy which is pretty disgusting to me personally.
Early Concept Art
So yeah, I dunno if anyone else realized, but Shane Acker’s website recently updated with some high quality concept art for 9. Those of us in the fandom have seen a lot of these before, but not yet in this quality—and there are a few that might even be new to some people!
As a die-hard fan as well as an artist, I must say this makes me ecstatic. :’D
