Yeah, sadly, that behaviour is partially why I think grimdark has lost popularity. It’s really more annoying that people are so vehemently against it than the fact it’s lost steam

Yeah. And the thing is that to our knowledge mnow one knew. :( He really had created something special for a game as unique as the original Rayman. And thank you as well.

Another Rayman related thing for today, though this one has a reason. Today the composer for the original Rayman game, Rémi Gazel, passed way today after a long fight with cancer. A few years ago he set up a project where he remastered some of the iconic tracks that he worked on for the game. He often talked and interacted with he community and was well loved by many in it. It was one if the first things I woke up to this morning, and it’s unfortunate that he couldn’t win this fight. However, as tragic as his passing may be— his works helped inspired a generation of players to what was some of the best taste in video game music. I decided to do something quick and celebratory of his work, since many fans today are doing just that. <3

I enjoy some grimdark, although I’m more of fan of either abstract-situation horror or in-character dark situations.

I do struggle a bit with the Adaptational Villainy trope in grimdark fan content because I developed some empathy for those characters, but overall I’m not against dark situations for the ponies.

I’ve drawn some downright horrible things, but it seems you’re either a regular on the Facebook side of the fandom, or everywhere else. Because they’ve tried getting me banned in groups too, and they message every Facebook page that posts my artwork and tell them not to do it anymore.

There’s a bit of a story behind it, but it’s grown to become rather absurd. Some people would PM me and talk about how disgusting or hateful I am only for me to show a couple images on Derpibooru and express their popularity.

Seriously, the Facebook ponies live in a cave.

But I’ve also had an image banned almost everywhere, including Derpibooru.

That’s pretty extreme for someone who barely draws grimdark, but also kinda indicative of the state of the fandom’s views on this stuff. The super good artists like crookedtrees, or pig-fish are just gone, or not making that kinda stuff anymore, so the fandom doesn’t have a good example for their dark stuff anymore.

It also just doesn’t help that the pioneers of grimdark haven’t left anyone behind that can keep that sort of content going. It’s sad, but it is how it is I suppose.

I myself only dabble in it. My mostly-family friendly project list outweighs my grimdark content 10 to 1.

Actually some of what I’ve drawn has gotten a few funny haters to try getting me banned from conventions. Every time I announce running panels somewhere, someone actually bothers sending emails to con staff asking them to prevent me from attending.

Can’t believe I’m asking this. Anyone have any hints or ideas on how to draw Crystal Ponies in a monochrome sketch?

In general, Crystal Ponies seem to be avoided in art without using a Crystal Pony template… and I guess I shouldn’t be surprised there’s not a lot of Crystal Pony OCs who are actually Crystal Ponies and not just in their crystal coat.

Anything that warrants the grimdark tag in general just seems to struggle on Derpibooru. And a majority of it is going to be edgy OC stuff or fetish-related.

It’s more of a niche form of entertainment that walks a fine line. If you overdo it in the gore or grimdark department, it becomes extremely unlikable (even though most of the people downvoting the image do it because they dislike the content, when they should just hide the content and move on). If you put it in without enough context, it just gets too edgy.

Very hard balance to please those interested, who are already a relative minority in the fandom.

Traditional art only from me, but it’s all freehand.

Drawing on paper is a lot less forgiving than digital art though.

Can’t exactly save it and hit ’undo’ if you make a mistake.
