The night, the best time of the day.

On a side note, I miss the time when you did pony drawings for free and based on your own ideas. Since you started to only draw fanarts based on the input of your Patreon supporters, your gallery lacks a lot of the originality and uniqueness you got popular for and that I started to love. :\

There is a little bit of misunderstanding. They only chose a theme, I still have a lot of control over what I am drawing. As long as it fits the theme. Unless it is the theme, I am the one choosing everything else. Characters, poses, style... Also, before patreon I was using themes for myself, to find ideas. So, if you find it unoriginal and boring... I don't have much to say. If you really don't like it, stop following me, I won't be upset. It happens =)

Also, I can't afford anymore to draw 100% for free. This way I can create content every single day.

Really? Lately you said there was week of Trixie, so you drew six fanarts of Trixie. You haven't chosen the character there.

Upon checking your gallery again, I think it's just that it has become kinda repetitive. I don't know how this will affect your ideas in the long run, but, not long ago, the theme was apparently "The Mane Six with plushies", so you drew each of them doing something with a plushie. Then the theme was "Trixie", so you drew six pictures of Trixie. Now the theme is "Night Ponies", so you probably draw six different ponies sitting somewhere and admiring the night.
Comparing that with a few sites back in your gallery, you had variety like with a picture of Spike dressed up as Peewee with Peewee sitting on his head, the Mane Six in Tuxedos, a picture of Scootaloo with a glowing butterfly on her nose, Rarity sitting on a croissant while eating a baguette, Twilight waking up at morning in her bed, ect. Can you see what I mean? It was all more mixed up.
This is what I miss in your gallery now.

I doubt that I am able to unwatch you as long as you draw ponies, but it's sad to see that your gallery feels much less diverse now. :(

I haven't choose the character, but that was the only restrain. I did fanarts of Trixie according to what ideas I had at the time.

But you know... When you take random artworks of the past years, of course it is boring. Not to mention i drew those artworks with a theme or an idea that wasn't mine. Spike dressed as Peewee? I did the whole mane 6 like that. The tuxedo? A theme. Scootaloo with a butterfly? Hitghly inspired by a picture found on safebooru. Rarity on a croissant? It was for the 14th of july (France national day). I see what you mean. And I know how it worked behind the scene.

The point is, it didn't really change much, I just restarted drawing pictures for you guys every day, and not once every two month between commission that I have even less control over it.

I haven't noticed that you were only uploading that rarely, but, what I'm saying is, that now there seem to be a lot of repeats and very similar pictures back to back in your gallery.
I don't have to pick out random fanarts, it also shows when I choose fanarts that were posted back to back. From Page 2 of your main gallery:

Pinkie Pie pretending to be a superhero, Derpy with butterfly wings, Applebloom and Sweetie Belle lifting Scootaloo into the air like she's flying, Rainbow Dash with Applejack's hat on the head and Applejack on it because she got shrunk, Applebloom, Applejack and Big McIntosh who switched roles, Scootaloo in old clothing and Rainbow Dash in a bunny costume.
Those seven pictures were published back to back and none of those is like the others.
It would just be great to have that variety back.
