Yes! Yes!!! I AGREE!! I DONT want people being retarded and keep saying shit about how its recolored when really, its COPIED. If we just take it down and make a new one and change some things around, We'll be ok! I dont want any idiots reporting this guy, he didnt draw it and the artist who DID draw Luna and Trixie in the thumbnail was just inspired by JJ. I see people base there art off of somebody else's artwork, TONS OF PEOPLE. Drawing inspiration is NOT art theft. How the fuck does drawing inspiration make you a theif??! You're all just making a big deal over nothing. -_-
i know you use random pics, but you'll get into trouble for something you didn't do by using this pic.. it's a recolour of johnjosecodrawing.. he's one of the most famous bronies I'm sure you didn't know, just warning you ^^
I'm having so much fun with this, I'm on Sketch number 3 at the minute [I'm getting lucky with this one], I like the Medieval court theme you have going on here! I'm making slight tweaks to it but it still follows the basic formula of the writing ;]
It's unfortunate to see fame and popularity get to people's heads. I could list quite a few artists I looked up to because of the quality of their art and whose image is muddied by their behaviour or by the fact that they lose sight of why they started making art in the first place, instead making their goal to just pour out tons of pictures and feed their popularity.
I guess the same can be said of all art mediums because I very often see really mediocre artwork/songs/whatever with comments doing nothing but praise... (and on occasion even lashing out at people who would dare say something looks wrong)
Amazing drawing OwO and I luv mlp and I know a bunch of famous bronies but I nvr heard of anyone named "JJ" ppls, if dis pic seems similar it's probably just a coincidence -_- so don't be mean about it or anything...
I realized I haven't properly commented on or analyzed what you're written for a long time now, so I figured I might as well exercise my brain a bit here.
I swear I saw some rhymes as I was reading through the piece. Your poetic way of writing always shines through in these fantastic expressions of humorous disdain. Bits like "...rituals would be enacted every hour (to calm his nerves in a complimentary shower)" make this fun to read!
The fact that you put this under Non-Fiction is a great form of humor in itself. While there is (hopefully) no one who calls themselves the Brony King, the fact that there are people like this out there, be it in this fandom or others, makes the Non-Fiction category partially true. Not sure if this is more funny or depressing.
It's also interesting to note the role of gender in this piece. Ignoring Tara Strong for a moment, there's no Brony Queen or any form of super female brony star. I suppose while it's not outright mentioned in this piece, perhaps a lack of females is damaging for the "King Brony"s and their courts.
While you don't outright satirize and criticize brony-related sexual deviancy in this work, words such as "lubricate" and "spermatic" do bring it to mind. Perhaps that dark side of the fandom is hidden in the darkness of King Brony's prodigious shadow.
The little goblin creature produced this click in my head and I realized that you may be referring to obese, hideous Goblin King in The Hobbit. He too had a little goblin messenger, though at the very least he had the sense not to eat him. After I saw this connection, I reread parts of this in that Goblin King's voice. It produced an extremely humorous effect.
The fluidity and good transitioning between one side of the Brony King's tantrums to another was really enjoyable to read. Being angry, then bawling because of the shirt print, then being angry in an instant again brought to mind a very obese roller coaster.
I'm not sure if you've ever written out the meaning of your satire in the satire itself before. Usually you just say in the description that what you just wrote was not meant to be taken seriously. But indeed, I learned a very important lesson from all of this.
ALL HAIL KING BRONY. LET ME FEED HIM HIS ENTITLEMENT.
But seriously, great work as always! Reading and commenting your work feels good!
And I thought I was the best person alive. I'm the best, Cudpug! ME BEST! ME BEST! ME BEST!
In all seriousness, anyone who thinks that is crazy and has an ego beyond human imagination. Another thing to note, when the fandom falters and breathes it's last breath, people've got to come up with a backup plan, if they're getting their living off of this particular show with their fanart. And transitioning to other work is almost going to be starting anew. A few will follow you, but a lot of them were there just for the fanart.
And so is life...
You are a better man than I for being capable of writing these with such finesse. I humbly accept you as my Brony King, yer highness bro.
