Your lack of effort is not entertaining. by Little-rolling-bean Your lack of effort is not entertaining. by Little-rolling-bean
Let me get some things out the way:
I am not against pony creator nor do I hate the maker of it and the fans of it.
I am okay with people using it to make their OCs and I am okay with people using it a few times.

This is going against people who do not even make an effort to draw, and their galleries are FULL of it. No drawings, nothing but Pony Creator.

Really, 99% of all pony creator pictures are stiff, lacking detail (and cutie marks) and just not that good. Some are actually good, but most are horrible.

"but I cannot draw good!"
I would rather see a bad drawing of a pony than an effortless picture from Pony Creator. Besides, maybe if you decided to draw a few years ago instead of using pony creator for so long, you might of actually gotten good! You will NEVER improve on art if you keep using pony creator and never try to draw! 

"I can upload what I want!"
Fine, don't listen to me, keep your gallery boring and stiff, don't accept my critique and NEVER improve. Never become the artist you wanna be. Your choice. 

Especially when people try to make a serious story/comic with pony creator, I just can't take it seriously. The ponies are so stiff and effortless!

I feel sorry for the pony creator owner, they would wake up in the morning to find 500 mentions of them of people crediting them for pony creator. 

Here are some tips to improve on drawing:
:bulletgreen: Practice, obviously. 
:bulletgreen: Watch speedpaint videos on youtube (my goodness I improve so much just by watching one!) 
:bulletgreen: Draw easy characters or make an easy OC to begin with.
:bulletgreen: Try new things. New styles, new techniques, new drawing programs, etc until you find the easiest one. 
:bulletgreen: Listen to critiques on your art. 

If you follow those and not Pony Creator, you WILL improve.

Just try dammit. Pony creator looks horrible, what is the difference between your "crappy" art and that besides EFFORT?

EDIT: omg this is a beautiful one: ioverd.deviantart.com/art/Fros…

JFC yes. Please, lots of people draw free OCs, including myself. Or, better yet, support an artist and ask for a commission.

I have used the pony creator a few times just to make funny ocs.
But you know what I have accomplished by ACTUALLY drawing since I first saw a pencil and paper?
Do you know what I have accomplished by never giving up on drawing even if it looked so bad that I shred the paper into tiny pieces and said that I will never draw again?
I'm 13 years old now and I never gave up on drawing.
Do you know how I draw now?

You should do a "clone stamp" for anime maker as well, it is very overused in icons, and looks kind of ugly.

I think Pony Creator is a good tool experimenting with colors and mane styles (But they are either canon characters hairstyles or overused hairstyles), but I do agree that it is overused. I am not a great artist myself but I am improving in MS Paint, but I would rather see a bit low-quality work then a bunch of pony creator. And if General Zoi is reading this, great job on making a very popular and trending game! I also have noticed that you can make some ridiculous OC's (Search MLP OC German Pringles) but I still like how you can see your pony from a side view, then improve on a drawing app.

This issue is really annoying.

Like, I only have MS Paint to make art, and I spent a lot of time on my pics to make them look good.

I usually get at least 3 favs on said pics, and I'm happy.

Then this random guy comes, makes Pony Creator shit in 5 minutes, and gets, like, 20 favs.

And this place is supposed to be an art site.

Ouch... I know how you feel. I really do know how you feel. Now, it's been one month since I posted that comment, and, in the meantime, I got more active watchers. The problem is, my stuff doesn't really get much attention, when I actually put some effort into it. (My gallery isn't exactly the best, but for now it's the only thing I can make).

And then there's the usual underaged deviant who thinks using Doll Makers all the time is "art" and somehow get more recognizon than ACTUAL artists.

I don't mind if it's used on occasion, but it stunts character design, and I'm ashamed to say I used to to design the majority of my OCs
