• Artist Training Ground - Sidekicks Edition

    It's Tuesday night here in EQDland, and outside of the usual pony news, we have the weekly Training Grounds to attend to!

    We had a Spike and pet centered episode this week, but only the mane 6 and their critters got any love.  What about the rest of ponyville? Surely they have plans to hit up the Equestria Games, and pets that need tending to.

    Have a prompt:
    Pick a pony that wasn't included, and draw them and their pet.
    The deadline will be the usual: Wednesday 11:00 PM PST (Thursday 7:00 AM GMT). The submitter will stay open for an undetermined amount of time after that, but don't count on getting in too late!  If you need help, toss an email to Submit@equestriadaily.com. 

    (Submit here!)

    Have fun with it! We have just a few more episodes left, so savor the learning

  • Music of the Day #56

    Music of the day time! We have a ton of vocal tracks this time around from all sorts of new faces, as well as a couple of old ones.  And of course, a bit of remix and instrumental to tie it all togeather.

  • Animation: Pony Rock Anthem Teaser

    Jan Animations is at it again, with yet another "this looks like its straight out of the show" level animation project. Right now it's just a teaser, but that doesn't mean it's any less exciting. I can't wait to see this one actually release!

    Find it below the break.

  • Funrise Releases Twilight Alicorn Plushie Image

    Funrise has released an image of their upcoming Twilight alicorn plushie.  It was also hiding in the back of an image they posted up a few months ago as many of you have already pointed out.  This one will be arriving on store shelves some time in the Fall. 

  • Drawfriend Stuff #700

    700 of these things? By Celestia, the art in this community is insane!  How does one group create so much quality?  You guys rock.

    I think the filly Chrysalis meme is a good way to celebrate it.  Technically FiM was just a meme generation tool back in the early months of it's life.  I doubt many expected it to go this route two years down the road.

    Have some art!

  • Turnabout Storm Episode #4 Released!

  • Comic: Allons-y / Discord's First Good Deed / Dr. Fluttershy

    It's nice to see that after all this time that Doctor Whooves fanon is still going strong and has actually evolved greatly over that time span. Leave it to the fandom to come up with such amazing and wonderful things, eh?

  • Brony 101: Alicorns

    Bombshells! Alicorns! Celestia with creepy eyes!  Saberspark is back with another episode of Brony 101, and as with all the news today, it is almost fandom-shattering in scale.  Head on down below, but wear ear plugs, because your mind is about to be blown. 

  • Super Secret Awesome Leak - Morgan Freeman to Voice Twilight Sparkle

    About a year ago, a leaked voice acting audition clip popped up on Youtube that caused waves throughout the fandom.  It sounded like Morgan Freeman was planning on voicing Applejack in a future season!

    Sadly, this never happened.  Seasons two and three came and went, and the general consensus was that Mr. Freeman didn't make the cut.

    But 12 minutes ago on Twitter, Tara Strong dropped a bombshell.  Apparently Twilight's shape and abilities aren't the only things changing!  With her new alicorn goddess powers, it's only natural that she would need a godlike voice.

    Look forward to Morgan "Sparkle" Freeman in season 4 and beyond. 
  • Twilight Size Comparison

    The front-on image of Twilight isn't too easy to judge sizes with, but luckily, a new image of Twilight in comparison to Rainbow Dash has started making its rounds.  As I mentioned in the toy post, it's not a massive increase, but she did gain a few inches.  Head on down below the break to check it out!  This isn't a finalized image by any means, so there is a chance that she will change. 

  • Twilight's New Groove - The Toys

    As many of you are pointing out in the submit box, there is a load of information buried in that EW post.  I figured I'd separate this off from the 1300 (and growing) comment riot.  This post is specifically about the new toyline. 

    As always, below the break for spoilers, even though at this point I don't think you can step 10 feet on the internet without running into it.


    Well, folks, the episode you've been waiting for your whole life is almost upon us. Season 3's finale to end all finale's (of season 3, at least) is almost here.

    And it's a doozy, as you can tell by the scrunchy faec

    The unicorn we all know and love is, by all accounts, about to... (spoiler'd!)

  • 10 Episode Marathon on The Hub

    It looks like the finale of FiM on the 16th of February will be rolling with a full on 10 episode long marathon.  A Discovery press release details the specifics:
    “’My Little Pony Friendship is Magic’ ‘Princess Coronation Marathon’” (6-11a.m.)
    Hub TV Network Original Series
    The Hub presents a special marathon of ten back-to-back episodes of the pop culture series “My Little
    Pony Friendship is Magic” culminating with an all-new episode, the “Magical Mystery Cure” (10:30-11
    a.m.). In the new episode, Twilight accidentally casts a spell that switches the Cutie Marks and destinies
    of all her friends. The only way she can reverse the spell is by writing her own magic.

    Rating: TV-Y
    Hope you guys don't have plans! Thanks to Masem for the heads up!
