  • Custom Pony Compilation #8

    Source
    I don't think Big Mac has ever had an image for anything other than a story on this site.

    I'm totally not biased or anything.

    These things always impress the hell out of me.  If only the real toys looked like this.  

    Anyway, have some custom ponies! Lots after the break!


  • PMV: Omen / My Little Top Gear / Trixie's Powerful Elixer



    I have been trying to enforce some kind of quality control on PMV's lately. Hopefully it's helping some! For the most part stuff with barely any synch is getting turned down. I'm still really lenient, but I'm sure most people are sick of seeing the entire sonic rainboom scene with rock music and the opening to episode 1 with sad music at this point. It's a product of only having 26 episodes to play with sadly.

    Also #3 is now deemed the lolwut slot, so have some ridiculous Trixie.

    1.) Omen
    2.) My Little Top Gear - Friendship is Ambitious but Rubbish
    3.) GREAT TRIXIE´S POWERFUL ELIXIR!

  • Comic: Pinkie Pie's hidden Talent

    Why is Pinkie Pie the best random character ever?  I usually don't like the obnoxious crazy weird side character that always plagues cartoons, but somehow Pinkie Pie just does it...right.

    And as is the norm for this fandom, another background pony with literally 2 seconds of screentime has spawned an entire comic....filled with shipping.

    I love you guys.

    Click for full as always. 



  • Music: Little Octavia // Dashie in the Sky with Rainbooms // Fluttershy's Lullaby

  • Pony Augmented Reality



    This is about as close as we're going to get to real ponies unless someone invents a portal to Equestria. Thanks for this heads-up goes to Tailszefox.

    For those unfamiliar with the concept of augmented reality, it's pretty much what it sounds like. Computer-generated elements are superimposed upon the real world in real time and tracked intelligently using a variety of sensors (like cameras, gyroscopes, or solid state compasses) in order to give the user more information about their environment. You can use this technology with a smartphone, for example, to detect text in a foreign language and replace it with your own in real time. The technology isn't widely used yet, but it's gaining ground as our processing power and detection algorithms improve.

    A pony has taken this concept and added ponies. You simply print out the markers and use your existing webcam and computer to track and replace the three-dimensional position of the marker with your favorite pony.

    You can find the application here. It runs in Flash and is a hefty download, so be patient. Print out your markers in the meantime.
  • Kite Pony!

    Another new...strange pony has popped up!  I wonder if Hasbro plans to add any of these recolors to the show? 

    This one was found once again on Taobao.  I don't know where they get their toy finding voodoo skills, but it never ceases to amaze me.

    Thanks to гɪᴎ for the heads up!

  • Comics: Pinkie Can Draw/Family Treachery


    What time is it, everypony? If you said comic time, you're both right and possibly cheating. You should be ashamed of yourself. But not too much, because comics. I am way out of practice with this stuff. Fortunately, Pinkie Pie has picked up the slack for me by learning how to draw laser guns. Find her zany antics above, courtesy of Solar-slash.

    Meanwhile, Paraderpy has produced some of the most shocking and scandalous propaganda to date. I for one am dropping my monocle in horror, but as a journalist it's my duty to bring these things to you, the pony public. Find it on the moon below.

  • My Little Pony: Budding Friendships - Status Update


    Budding Friendships is a currently-in-progress Harvest Moon style game involving ponies. Assuming the role of a famer pony (I think that's actually the character pictured above), you take over a rundown ranch at the edge of the Everfree Forest, and through a lot of hard work and by forming lasting bonds of friendship with the ponies of Ponyville, turn it into something you can be proud of.

    So far, the team of ponies in charge of this project have put together most of the underlying framework and core mechanics. Movement's possible, and time passes, as marked by a nifty little night-and-day wheel. You can see some screenshots after the break. They were even ambitious enough to set a tentative release date for a fully finished and super playable version, but I know enough about development cycles that I'm not going to shackle them to that. But if you're interested in commenting and following along more closely, check out their Canterlot forum thread here. Additionally, they are looking for a vector artist and a sprite artist to help out. If you're interested in providing these services, drop a line to killerjaguar26@gmail.com

  • Story: Equestria Divided

    [Grimdark][Sad] This is a complete revamp of an old story that was submitted back in April. 

    Author: The Whelp
    Description:   Princess Celestia's formerly loyal subjects start rebelling
    against her. She retaliates with brutish force, destroying whatever is
    in her way and outlawing magic for everypony but her own servants.
    Twilight Sparkle is caught in the middle, initially siding with her
    master. But she eventually realises what this has cost her. She now
    tries to make amends for her own actions under Celestia's orders while
    simultaneously trying to stop the power-hungry goddess.
