• EQD Discussion: Too Many OC Ponies Here? What do You Think?

    If you checked out that Drawfriend post earlier, or any of the Drawfriend posts in the last few weeks, you've probably noticed a pretty large amount of OC ponies sneaking in. We started taking submissions on them them about a year and a half ago, and quite a few people have been pumping them out. Hell, we are about to drop some EQD Mascots off (yeah, a half a year late.. woops!) once our final commission banner is done.

    A few people have brought this up in email, so I figured I'd hand off the discussion to the masses. As we dive deeper into this mini-yet-still-painful-hiatus, the official character art has slowed, and OC's seem to be the thing. If you go to Deviant Art right now, search "pony", and switch it to top in the last 24 hours, you will see what I mean. It's getting more and more common, and in these slow periods, absolutely explodes. Show ponies tend to go toward a direction we can't really post during these periods, for the sake of keeping it "Safe For Work" here.

    Since some of you are worried, I figured I'd start up an EQD focused discussion. I'll keep absorbing the original quality horses, and have quite a few favorites now, but what about all of you? Are we posting too many OC ponies lately? Are bats driving you batty?
