Some nice art!
Rainbow Dash is the best pony!
Awesome stuff tonight! :3
Oh my, that second one... *ahem* Anyway...
@Rainbow DashI respectivly disagree that you are best pony.
OMG yes, that Bastion picture. :D
Did anyone else try and call that number in Source 18? :p
That last pic... Why does Mac look so happy with that bow?
Nice catch today.
Why do people make those disturbing pictures like the second one, THEY ARE CUTE PONIES DON'T MAKE THEM SEXUAL!
#12 But haven't you kissed everyone and and everything already?
Dashie I love you but I am best pony#21 should I be concerned
A ponified Kid from Bastion! Buck yeah!
WHAT'S UP WITH ALL THE LOW COMMENT COUNTS?
@Pinkie PieI dunno. Maybe Discord's turned over a new leaf.
It's been so long since I was here when a Drawfriend just came out. Let's see what we got:#1 So elegant. Really love the lighting on this one.#4 Derpy in a reindeer costume never gets old.#6 I'm guessing this is one of the few times when Pinkie is actually still.#7 Oh, this is just crazy adorable.#8 I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that upper cut.#9 Now where could she be going with all those cupcakes.#13 That is the last time we entrust Derpy with letters to Santa.#19 C'mon Pinkie! Let Santa see!#22 *Jaw drops*#23 Derpy! The lights are still on you!!#24 The queen in all her elegant glory.#25 That's probably gonna be a lot of us come New Years Eve.
#7,8,9,25,26 are awesome :3
#11: Luna is best spy!#14: Awesome! I just started playing Bastion again too!#17: Trixie must've made friends with Rarity... This is the best. possible. thing.
15: TwiCaramel? I like it.
@Offtopicrainbowi did, but got an international callxD
Number 14 is so much win.
#22 is best one. Super-fancy Fluttershy is awesome, but so much pastel color. Seems more like Easter than Christmas to me.Gotta give it up for 8 too. I enjoy anime influences in western animations. Super Bucking Special Apple Smasher GO!!
12) - "Never...BUT LET'S DO THIS."
#1 Wow, just wow.Wish I could of had #3 & #4 on the front of christmas cards!#7 D'awwwww#8 APPPPLLLEEEEE PUNCH!#11 A mix of lol and d'awww on this one :3#16 Great drawing!#22 Wow this is great stuff.#24 Now Rarity would make the best queen.#26 Bahahaha just brilliant.
#11!Woona, you are so cute when you're "invisible"! :D
#13 look the good side, she went south XD
@anoadragon453For me, I mostly stopped commenting when the same 5-10 people started to comment bomb every post with inane BS and negativity.It was actually better with anon posting, imho.
@OctaviaUmm..... Octy do we need to talk about images and the internet.
Those that disagree on Rainbow Dash being best, will be thrown in the dungeons, sent to the Sun and be forced to hear Rarity whining. By order of Princess Celestia herselfDon't hate me I'm just a guard
I don't know what Dash wants from me in 12. Holly doesn't mean a whole lot.
@ Travis Smith Come at me pony
Only twelve really catches my attentionBut I've already got a rainbow in my life
#1 Hoorah for me, awesome picture.#3 Nice drawing.#4 A very Derpy holiday to you all.#6 D'aww, very nice.#7 Fluttershy as Dr. Horrible celebrating the holidays? well that's something new, I like it, very cute.#11 Boxes never made Luna invisible, adorable though? eeyup.#12 Whoops, next time check to see if the map is the right way up Derpy.#14 Bastion pony? that's pretty good.#16 Very nice style and colouring.#19 I'm not sure how that is working but it's brilliant, very nice drawing.#20 Odd style but she looks fairly cute.#21 I'm not super fond of shipping these two but I do think they'd be good friends.#23 Oh Derpy, good drawing.#26 Bit of a mix up there, very good though I think AJ looks better with her hat on.Very nice drawfriend today though I couldn't think of much to say for rather a few.
@Pinkie PiePlease don't make me throw you in the dungeon, your Dash's best friend
12 IS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.
@Pinkie Pie*Throws cupcake* Fetch Pinkie.
Don't care proceeds to put hot sauce in his food and helmet and runs away
#15. I don't get it. they've never interacted.
@Travis SmithQuit lying. No one can have enough Rainbow Dash in their lives.
Forgot to mention how much I really like 24. Oh yeah, she's the queen and she knows it. I'm telling you, lately Rarity has been making a serious push for best pony on my list. That Applejack episode better happen soon, or else I'm looking at a new #1.
Dashie, some of us are furries, it's gonna happen. I for one approve :P
#5 That is so damn cute <3#6 Dawww...#8 Shoryuken! I can so see AJ doing this.#11 Hehe this made me chuckle, very cute.#13 Did lol, penguin expression is great.#22 As great as the picture is, Fluttershy just looks silly in that getup.#23 Another one that made me laugh, Derpy looks so happy too <3#24 Dat grin, guess you finally got everything you wanted eh Rarity?#26 Not sure what's going on here... That Big Mac sure made me giggle like a school girl though. And poor AJ, that thing around her neck is almost as big as her body!
@wackyponyAnd that's why shipping sucks.
@JimperatorNot what I meantMy gf told her favorite is now Dash, it was Twilight:)
15 is best shipping fic ever!!!
I love #16, although I love just about anything that has Spitfire looking adorable. ^_^
#11Luna is forever associated with cardboard boxes.
@Pegasus Rescue BrigadeReminds me of Metal Gear
@Travis Smith Dungeons and the sun are still tolerable, but in the name of all that is holy, DON'T EXPOSE ANYONE TO RARITY'S WHINING! That is cruel and unusual punishment!
@[AuB] Dashie#2 was called "saucy" for a reason you know. If you don't like it, don't click on it.
@Travis SmithThis means her top two are in line with mine, she has good taste.
Short one, which works for me since the other half of my family arrived today...1) I could never do her job... I hate getting up at sunrise. Still, she (and this beautiful image) makes it look appealing.2) Saucy Octavia, eh? Does this mean the bow tie is off?3) I really like the style of this Christmas Celestia... Charming and fun.4) What percentage does she actually deliver? Or does she somehow shed packages and letters right over their intended targets?5) Wow... these two are looking stylish.6) Sleeping Pinkie in her Christmas socks is pretty dangerously adorable.7) Heh... Dr. Adorable indeed.8) Now that is a wicked uppercut. Her opponent is going to taste apples for weeks. Very cool.9) Not rain nor sleet nor snow will keep Pinkie from delivering a party!10) A nice wintery purple Twilight background.11) Even princesses would rather play with the boxes. Funny!12) Heh... cute use of the quote from Mare-Do-Well.13) Give her credit... she found the southern birds this year.14) Quite the gear that pony is packing.15) The way to Twilight's heart is probably through her stomach. How often have we heard it rumble, after all?16) The very definition of stealing a quick kiss. Really nicely done image.17) I like Trixie's formal dress, but I'm not sure that hat really works for the occasion. Nah... that hat is always awesome. Nevermind.18) What nationality breaks up their phone numbers that way? And how many bronies will actually try it out?19) Hah! I love this little image of the gang in their winter outfits leading Santa's sleigh. I wonder, were those outfits designed just for the web page game, or might we see them in an episode yet?20) Whoa... Fluttershy's gone all Fleur. It's time for a grace-off!21) Don't do it Pinkie! He's a big, dumb, meanie! Well drawn, though.22) Wow... that's an impressive ensemble. nice design work!23) I really like the Derpy shaped hole in the tree. And that Twilight looks like she did in "Peckish Pony".24) Absolutely awesome drawing of Rarity on her throne... the coloring, the shading, the attitude. Killer.25) Berry Punch is a favorite of mine, and she looks great here.26) Excellent drawing of the Apple family... Love the grumpy AJ. Someone seems to have made applesauce of their names though...So many great pony images in this group! The holidays haven't hurt for quality. Thanks to all of the artists for sharing them, and to the fine folks at EQD for putting the Drawfriend together!
#1 Nice Celestia pic. I like the perspective and lighting, think it looks good.#2 Well... what can I say bout this piece? Y'know, when I first saw it, it reminded me of the Lil Miss Rarity blog. The style is rather similar. And it has such a dark nature to it like you'd expect from them. At lest I think so. It's rather interesting. Very nicely done no doubt. I guess that white around my hind legs are the tops of the stockings. I thought they were cuffs at first and I was strapped to something.#3 Celestia's expression looks so shocked and embarrassed in this one. It's like it's Molestia and we're just not seeing the entire picture here. lol Sorry. That's what the face reminds me of. Merry Christmas to you too, Mol... Celestia. :)#4 Yay, Derpy and Dinky Christmas pic. So cute.#5 Of course the first thing to catch my attention in this were the sweaters. lol Especially AJ's. What an... interesting design. But adorable still of course. This artist draws such cute faces. :3#6 The large amount of yellow caught me off-guard. Took me a few moments to realize it was sunbeams. lol Now I feel like a derp. What a nice and cute scene. Love Pinkie in her Santa hat and festive socks. And she wants a My Little Pony figure for Christmas. :P#7 *sees tiny Fluttershy in the stocking* HHHHNNNNGGGG! Overwhelming cuteness. Best. Christmas. Ever.#8 Ah reckon ya wouldn't wanna be on the receiving end of that move, sugarcube. lol I love the pose and especially that expression.#9 Seth, ya dun derped the link. But from the tags, I'm assuming this is from that song series. Must be the final one for the twelfth day. Cute Pinkie with a dozen delicious cupcakes. :)#10 Pretty cute. Especially that face. I like the slight fetlock fur details.#11 Haha. Oh Luna, you are simply too silly and adorable. I concur with the comments. Who wouldn't want a Luna-in-a-box for Christmas? I know I should would. <3#12 That line of dialogue. But can I tag a team mate in instead? lol Kidding Dash. Uhh, sure, why not? xD#13 This makes sense. Derpy would go the wrong way of course. Poor Derpy, she came all that way. :( Adorable pic though. I especially like the penguin on the right. lol#14 Ah, never played that game, so this reference is lost on me I'm afraid. But I still think it looks pretty cool.
#15 Aww, isn't that sweet? Never read the story myself, but this is rather cute. :3#16 I was going to ask what happened to Soarin's wings. I believe I see the outline, but they aren't colored. Cute image. Soarin seems rather surprised.#17 What an interesting dress, Trixie. lol I dunno, I like it. I think those layers on the back of it look rather cool yet elegant. I see her hat's brim was also enlarged for a more sophisticated look, nice. And she has the cutest little smile.#18 I'm almost tempted to give that number a call. lol Oh, that Fleur. Constantly striking a pose.#19 Really nice. I like how this one includes all six of them pulling the sleigh. Well, besides Pinkie. Who is currently being typical Pinkie in the back. Poor Santa. You might want to uncover Santa's eyes Pinkie. :P#20 And then Fluttershy had a huge growth spurt. Well, judging by Fleur and them, I guess Flutteshy would make an even better fashion model now. Time to make... ze magicks!#21 I'm guessing this is some Discopie. lol Quite adorable, especially Pinkie's expression. Love how we take bad guys like Discord and make them into some of the sweetest characters you've ever seen. The images on the blanket are a nice little touch. :P#22 Wow. That is certainly derived from old-fashioned French couture alright. Quite elaborate and flowing. This even looks like an old picture with the textures used. Very beautiful.#23 Took me a moment to notice what happened in this. Derpy flew through the tree and got the lights tangled on her, I see now. I really like Dash and Twilight down there with their reactions. Haha, cute. :3#24 That role just fit Rarity so well. Queen Rarity. I'm sure there's little she would think were more fitting than that. :P Lovely picture. I like the nice deeper colors, her pose and definitely that expression. So very smug.#25 "Go home, Ms. Punch, you're drunk." You mean there's a time when she's not drunk? Doh ho ho. An experienced drinker she is. She's quite adorable in this pic.#26 Lmao. Big Mac with a bow... and AJ with his plow harness. xD Too cute and funny. Some might find it "weird" and to them I say go buck yourself, but I love how proud Big Mac looks in that bow. Rock on Big Mac, rock on. :)
@wackypony It is from a shipping fic
6 and 13 are the best ones
@CityFly502I love Rarity's whining! She is best pony. After Pinkie, that is.
Love the first onebut number #14!Bastion pony!Yes!
I smell a Caramel's Light update soon!Side Note: It's official: Applejack looks good with or without her Stetson.
@cardshark78I regret clicking on it, however I asked why people even make them. I for one find it gross that people think of these cute ponies in that way.
#2 Well, jcharlesmachiavelli's "saucy" Octavia is extremely well done. Somehow I get an Art Nouveau vibe from it, or something from the 1920's. That might be from the soft lighting, and because it is mostly monochrome, except for a touch of color on the cheek. The shading is lovely, the mane seems unfinished and she's missing her nostrils. She looks oddly anthropomorphic, even for a MLP. I think it's because she has a shortened rostrum and her fore limbs are way too thin. While a pony should have a convex upper thorax, I think Pinkie Pie's chest looked similar during her "she does evil dances" song at the beginning of Bridle Gossip. It looked weird then and it looks oddly human on Ocatvia here. It doesn't help that she looks hairless and that she's sleeping on her back. If she has fur, it looks too pale.
@[AuB] DashieWell, you have to respect other people's interests. I don't think they're that bad. As long as they aren't explict.
#8 MINE IS THE HOOF THAT WILL PIERCE THE HEAVERNS! WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM?!?
@Sunset SprinklesThe drawing itself is far off from being bad, it's just what it is. I have seen far worse when I went to find out what this rule 34 was, now I get so pissed when I see things like this. Imagine if studio B saw those?Just to repeat, I do respect that it is a good drawing.
@[AuB] DashieI'm sure everyone working on MLP has seen this stuff. There's always going to be people working on shows who'll see their work in ways they don't want to see them. The best they can do is steer clear.
#5 Them be some cute outfit!#6 Pinkie pie looks cute sleepin x3#7 oh god that image again...HNNNNNGG...#8 Ryu approves!
Favorites: #11: Giantmosquito's Lunar Express. LOL! Who's name does Celestia call in vain when Luna pulls off stuff like this box disguise?#20: Monythecat's Fluttery. Nice mix of curvey shapes and dynamic scribbles and scratches in this full body portrait of Fluttershy.#24: Macflash2's Long Live the Unicorn. Rarity is a riot on that throne with her smug little smile.And #2 ("saucy" sleeping Octavia) is a reluctant favorite too, just for the sheer artistic wow.
Studio B has seen MLP stuff like #2 and beyond. The artists at DHX media are not only bigger fans of MLP than a good many of us are, they're artists. They've taken all the classes, they've drawn all the anatomy, they've seen it all. They're pros.
#8 - WOW that is awesome. :D#13 - *facehoof* Oh Ditzy, not again...
The art gets better and better every Drawfriend I see :3
@frith "Oh, for the love of Faust, Luna. Stop fooling around. You're giving ponies diabetes."
#12 omgomgomg YES!
@LBlaze What? Diabetes? ...sugar... oh damn! I forgot to drink my tea! (it's probably cold now)
#2 (besides it being saucy) is very well done.Haha awwww wittle woona in a box :3The first one is just epic.
@LBlaze *Sips tea* Ah ha ha ha! I get it now! Good one. (is slow)
#15:Dear lord when will Caramel's Light FINALLY UPDATE?! Can you see this author?! I am eager and waiting, begging on hands and knees!
My Reaction to #2:Ohh saucy Octy...*click*...Saucy? just a little...Seductive beyond words? oh yeah...no clop thoughts...just long walks and beaches and candle lit dinners...Want...On another note!#11Woona knows the best presents TOO!
#15Heeeeeey, I read that one!
8 and 11 are my favorites
Dat Bastion Pony <3
11. I see nothing.(this is a great one)13. Muwhawhaw, poor Derpy17. Nice dress.23. See #1324. That's one smug pony right there.26. Big Mac looks a little too happy, but Apple Bloom looks super adorable in AJ's hat.
7) Oh my Celestia, A stocking full of ADORABLE!8) PONYUKEN!11) All cardboard boxes tend to carry one of two things: Something adorable, or Solid Snake.Luna in a box FTW!
#2: It seems that some of the best artists are doing this rule 34 stuff. Seems a waste. Oh well....#13 This made me burst out laughing. I think it was the face flipper face palm penguin that sold it.
#1: Very nice portrait of Celestia, with a beautiful background. It gives the impression of Celestia enjoying the peace and calm of an Equestrian morning before starting on her day. Tonight's favorite.#3: Fun little Christmas image; I love Celestia's expression.#7: Christmas wishes from one of the odder pony ask tumblrs, Dr. Adorable's Ask-Along Blog.#8: Action-packed AJ drawing with a groan-inducing pun for the title; I approve!#11: Kids do sometimes prefer the packaging to the product...#16: I normally don't comment on regular shipping images, but this one's just too fun to ignore.#20: Very unusual style for this Fluttershy, but I like it.#22: "French haute couture, please."#24: Rarity looks like she was born for the throne.#26: Big Macintosh with a bow is just too silly for words.
@HarwickYour comment on #2 got me to laugh out loud. And for #4, it wouldn't surprise me if her dropped letters floated down to the correct recipients; we are talking about a mare who apparently can control her own age. (Also, nice callback to RoHp2 in your comment on #21...)
#2 and #24 are my personal bests here without any doubt.Octavia is amazing and so is that pic.And the picture of Rarity is just beyond words.
@[AuB] DashieI sympathize with your reaction, but it's useless to ask that question. Some people like it, some don't, and attempts to explain why on either side usually end badly.
#26: Big Macintosh is prettiest pony <3
@archer1949I haven't bothered to check it, because it's not my thing, but from what I've read in the comments #2 is far from rule 34, which refers to actual porn.
Awww! Soarin and Spitfire, floating in a breeze.K. I. S. S. I. N. G.They really do look so cute together! /) ͡ ʚ ͡ (\
Silly Justin Timberlake. You are so wrong. The best present for Christmas is a Woona in a box!
Big Mac at 26 SHO KYUTE /)^3^(\
gah. i got 2 type with my keyboard symbol pallete.i spilled my pop into my keyboard...Wait a minute... I forgot about my bluetooth keyboard! LOL! Now I'm glad I got it. It's times like this I sure wish I had me some of that unicorn magic.Do you HAVE ANY IDEA how many parts there are to a keyboard!!! I had to take it apart to clean it out. Nuttin' like warm distilled water to clean up gummy electronics.Also... SO glad for the spare keyboard. Ironically, it's clean as can be, cause I never usually ever use it! LOL!Luna is best pony! Bluetooth keyboard even agrees, it has a key with a Luna cutiemark! (sleep button. Seriously though, it's a crescent moon).
The phone number on 18 isn't real, it actually spells out "fleur-de-lis" on a numerical phone keypad.
Coincidentally, it also has 10 digits, just like many phone numbers: 353 (three digit area code)-873 (first three local digits)-3547 (last four unique digits). Commenters on the deviation page have reported that calling (353)-873-3547 gets you nothing, but I haven't tried it.
#11 Epicness level overloaded
#12 is holly, not mistletoe, like the idea though!
Got to say all of the art work I see are amazing and that it keep on geting better and better I think it is safe to say all of you make. MlP 20% cooler
