Actually, Ren And Stimpy gives me the most inspiration, but MLP is a close second.

My Little Pony must be the strangest inspiration for me to write. My writing style includes demons, warriors, and despair... Then this show comes out and I have this innate desire to take my main character and throw him into the Equestrian world.

depends on your definition of weird.
I get inspiration from Gore, Horror and depression... But i draw happy things.
I dislike Anime, but my first drawing was anime inspired...

I looked at my roof and in my mind I saw a man sitting on it drinking beer with a rifle in hand... It sparked the most recent story im working on.

Some nights, I have "plot-dreams". They're interesting and I usually remember them in the morning. Sometimes I base stories on them, sometimes not (because they can still be really weird).

The hilarious thing is, my subconscious is a better writer than Stephenie Meyer and some television executives combined when they're awake.

ALL THE TIME. A spark of inspiration sometimes never leaves my head.

Examples:

1.) Rikushiro Onigawa (from Ground Defense Force Mao-chan) is Japan's best spin doctor. How else can you explain him able to convince the Japanese cabinet to give him money for his grand-daughter to use the alien artifact they just found? They don't need money to use that thing. It's like if Abu convinced Aladdin to give him twenty bucks every time he wanted to get a wish from Genie.

2.) There is a ninja in the Hidden Leaf's village (from Naurto) whose job is to break a rabbit's legs. Seriously, where else are ninjas learning to heal broken bones are going to get their practice animals?

3.) Dr. Stable is head of Equestria's cloning program. Earth ponies are just easier to make than unicorns, so that's why he just made a bunch of them, which is also why we see so many Caramels in the background, that three horseshoes mark isn't a cutie mark, it's to let ponies know it's a clone. This has been going on for ages though, he even helped with new colonies like Apploosa.

Of course if you mean artistically...then yes to that too.

I thinK EVERYONE has had this sorta thing at least once. Hell, I think everyone's at least once been inspired by something they're ashamed to admit inspired them. xD

For me, a few months back, this was ponies. :D Now, I love them.

I suppose some of my sources of inspiration may seem strange to others. But I think that inspiration can come from anywhere at anytime, so I don't think it's weird.

Math lesson in 8th grade. T'was before I were into "emoticons". We were learning about coordinates.

Also...I think one if my characters in subconciously based on my own hate against how humanity is treating our planet ^^'

I was in a real life art block, and then someone said he was inspired in my drawings, and that actually removed my art block.

I got inspiration by someone who got inspiration because of me for tl;dr

Most recently; the best pony I've ever drawn was last summer during my internship. It was 40C, I was in long sleeve business casual, and I was in a factory running diagnostics on a quality control system (basically, I was miserable). While I was waiting for it to cycle, I decided randomly to doodle. Picked Pinkie Pie and a pose, and just went. No reference, and standing with a clipboard.

I can hardly force myself to draw, and I never managed to do that good again all summer.

I still consider MLP:FiM to be a weird source of inspiration. Nothing wrong with that of course but if someone had approached me 2 years ago and told me i would finally pick up a pencil again cos of ponies i might have laughed at them. :P

One time, my friend mentioned something about the icon :iconlikeasirplz: in a comment and it inspired me to write a completely crack comment that involved my OCs and England from APH going to a tea party. One of my OCs, a mentally insane undead dragoncat (a creature of mine. It's an unorigional name for a creature, I know.) named Kurai, is invited by Moonstar, my 'fursona', to said occasion much to the alarm and dismay of two of my other OCs. So yeah. Inspiration is fucking weird like that.
