You're probably wondering why I'm posting a Team Fortress 2 video on the blog. Cereal, you've gone mad with power, I'll bet you're saying. Too much power for his own good- poor boy cracked. It was Star Trek as far as the eye could see.
Stop thinking that and just click it.
You'll thank me.
This picture is amazing.
The Artist Training Grounds has posted their wrap-up for week thirteen of their epic quest to draw nothing but really awesome pony so I don't have to search nearly as hard or as long for drawfriend material! Oh, and that whole bit about becoming better artists and more confident in themselves, I suppose, too.
You can find the wrap-up here, along with 79 new pony drawings. That's a serious amount of pony.
These are actually packed into a .rar file, but he has an image showing off all of them. Check out the link below for the compilation!

This is an event that has gained an absolutely staggering amount of steam as it has gone on. How much steam? Well, this 4th iteration produced 78 songs, which is... just... wow. I'm listening to them as I work, and I am extremely impressed. The brony music community is talented as all heck, and we are lucky they're all such prolific self motivators. My mp3 player is less lucky; I've got to keep deleting old songs to make room for all of this pony!

Every time I try to open my mouth and say something like 'Luna is overrated', I see an image of her as a little filly wrapped in a blanket or wearing socks or who knows what's next, and I make little squeaking noises like when I'm talking to a kitten and then I feel bad and have to apologize. This effect is magnified a thousandfold if you pair her with a young Celly. I could seriously read comics about the two of them until the end of time.
On a totally unrelated note, here's a followup to a 'Flutershy being a Discordant Jerk' comic from a few days back:
Description: With being outcast from Ponyville and only feeling ill in Cloudsdale, Gilda has lived in the Everfree forest for over a year ever since she lost her friend Rainbow Dash. More than half her nest lays littered with crumpled and pierced letters she never sent, and the creatures of the forest have given up on comforting her. Gilda has never felt more alone in her life.Feathers (New Part 5!)
When the wandering Fluttershy happens upon her home, Gilda finds forgiveness in the last place she would ever expect. But will the rest of Ponyville forgive her?

Description: Celestia and Luna were born as unassuming foals in troubled times. But already marked for greatness, the simple earth ponies stand to face a world set against them, full of danger, fear, and sadness. A world they will change forever.Paradise (New Part 17!)
