Tonight we have the twelfth Community Spotlight, run, as always, by Gendid. This week it's Wisdom Thumbs, pony artist and author of “Swordpony!”. You can find his works on his DeviantArt page and you can find “Swordpony” right here on Equestria Daily!
Without further ado, enjoy an interview with Wisdom Thumbs!

Well hello there, everypony. It has been a long time. In case you haven't heard, Equestria's quadrennial war games with the Griffon Empire are upon us. It's a time for harsh training, a time to pony up, a time to make your equine nation proud.
It's also a time for drawing some cool looking ponies! Dust off your pencils and tablets, because we are about to art. You may remember the last time this event was held, but in case you came in after the end, the Newbie Artist Training Grounds are an exercise in creative expression and improvement through repetition. You, yes you, can learn to draw like all the big name artists, and all you have to do is practice. There's hundreds of bronies from this summer who will testify to that. So for the next five days, let's put on war paint and have some fun. Find the rules of engagement and get some questions answered after the page break.
And then Granny Smith was a real character.
Welcome to the episode followup! This week we got a huge slap in the face made entirely of new canon for Ponyville and the Everfree forest. To some, that might have hurt! For the rest of us it was rather enjoyable. Come along for the ride, and we'll talk about all the neat stuff we saw.
I'm slowly digging all of this stuff up, confound these seven hour plane rides! Daniel Ingram is once again showing off how much of a badass he is with a Skype interview for the massive crowd at BroNYCon. This one is separated into a few parts, so I'll link them below instead of embed.
Daniel Ingram Interview
The image quality is a bit low, but all you need is the audio anyway! Check it out after the break!
Update: If you want to wait for HD, Bronyville will be tossing it up on their page this Wednesday with the new episode!
Also they have badass pins.

We have another product update from our super-awesome sponsors, WeLoveFine, the only officially licensed source for pony stuff for your various body parts!
The spotlight this time around is a set of men's shirts, women's shirts, and a poster for this Twilight Sparkle Nouveau, similar to the ones of Fluttershy a while back. They also encourage you to check out the site in general, as a bunch of other stuff has been added. Shop around! Buy some pony. Support these awesome guys!
... but try not to crash their server this time!

It's Celestia in a freakin' bunny suit. I don't even have to say anything.
Music time! We have some contrast this morning- some metal and some calm stuff!
1.) Metal Rarity Theme
2.) Valence - Rainy Day in Ponyville
Not to mention the French and Powerful version, which is also awesome.
BUCK YES edition. Also PK HAS A MASSIVE HEADACHE and may not be super witty tonight but he's going to do it anyway because he attained another reeducation camp and is now completely devoted to the glorious Sethisto long may he reign.
