    One person I can think of, is this dude who drew really good fan art from "Metroid". His drawings had decent anatomy and really good coloring and shading. The only biggest problem with him is that he kept wasting all his talent on making diaper fetish and scat drawings.

    Can't remember his dA ID, but it should be somewhere in the "WTF Fetish" thread.

    Another big waste for me is BrandyRosa. She can make some pretty good traditional painting (as seen here and here) but prefers to waste her time and effort on drawing shitty, sameface animu loli and generally being a huge ripoff of Amuria and the like.

    More people coming soon...

    Some of the very best online artists I can name off exclusively draw ponies. Not that I'm complaining.

    I typed in "metroid diaper" and got three posts, two of which were referencing http://livinginfinite.deviantart.com/gallery
    Thankfully, a lot of his pictures have been reported for bodily wastes

    It hardly takes talent to draw ponies

    Speed paint of a character from MLP.

    It's obvious that there is clearly no talent here, whatsoever.

    Nope, not at all.

    What, me? Butthurt?

    I'm merely presenting evidence that supports my opinions, why would I even feel slightly upset as of right now?

    Thats like saying it takes talent to draw sonic characters by showing a realistic drawing of a hedgehog or a fox

    ugh i can smell them. dirty socks are so gross.

    There is nothing worst then seeing someone's gallery be full of lovely art, but all they draw is homestuck fanart.

    Yeah, that's the guy.

    Good thing they removed all his disgusting fetish art. Though I wonder how long will it take 'til he gets back to uploading this sick shit...

    A lot more effort and detail goes into pony-related art overall than sanic fanart.

    I would post example images, but I would have a very hard time choosing my favorites.

    A couple of them are still up.

    Tits and dicks on ponies don't count as "effort and details".

    I love you guys

    And now for something relevant to the thread:
    Andrew Dickman, because he can draw well, but wastes it on shit like "Team Awesome," and TGWTG. Pretty much ever since he jumped on that crew I lost a shit ton of respect for him.

    In all honesty, I think MLP's art style is easier to ape off of than Sonic's. Not that I'm praising the Sonic art style or anything.

    Since Doug Walker just ended Nostalgia Critic, TGWTG probably is going to lose half its viewers and possibly go defunct

    and speaking of Andrew Dickman, http://andrewdickman.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=realistic#/dowwaq

    basically bawwing about how cartoons are becoming too realistic cause you know, if a cartoon has a defined story line, an art style that doesn't rely on the eyes being bigger then the mouth and fart jokes, then its too realistic and unfunny for my manchild self

    Did I ever make that claim in my previous message? No. I said that I observed higher quality fanart. While the pony fanbase is particularly strong in some areas, in other ways, it's worse than any fandom out there. And yet, many of these MLP artists can draw pretty damn fine.

    Okay, yes, I too sometimes get nostalgic about old cartoons, but fuck.

    That's the thing about them, you can't just bring them back, they'll suck. Say Bugs Bunny came back (the old slapstick shit, not this... weird sitcom type thing... or whatever) It would probably just be rehashings of the same "episodes" (if you don't already consider half the episodes just the same schtick)

    And holy shit when did he stop Nostalgia Critic? I wish I had heard that earlier. Maybe the circlejerking on that site will finally end Nope, probably not.

    I actually liked the Discord video, but I have friends in weird places.
    There's a ton of girls at the college I go to who constantly draw yaoi, especially Supernatural and Sherlock yaoi. They draw very well but you can tell a lot of it is poses they remember from comics. Also that weird yaoi huge hand thing.

    Pretty much this.

    Also, notice how this thread is called "Wasted Talent" instead of "Let's talk about our fandoms."

    It's weird, I know.

    You know, every time I some grown ass dude crying about how old cartoons were so much better back then and how much today's cartoons suck, I'm always reminded of this scene from the Twilight Zone episode called Walking Distance:

    They're so clouded by their nostalgia that they can't seem to just stop and look. If they did, they might realize that cartoons are just fine now. I mean, yeah, there's tons of crap. But there's always been crap. Quite frankly, the 90's were fucking full of shitty cartoons. Anyone remember Road Rovers? or Biker Mice From Mars? or Bucky O'Hare? Oh wait, you don't. Probably because they sucked. The 80's were full of them too, and so were the 70's (oh god) and so on.

    I know this probably sounds really gay and all, but it's just something that's been on my mind for a while.

    Ok, now let's get this goddamn thread back on track.
