• Nightly Roundup #649


    Gurren Lagann has to be my favorite anime series and when I saw this pic I promptly squeed! Luna and Celestia seem like a good pair for this, but who else do you think would serve as good replacements for Simon and Kamina?

    Time for the news guys! Check it out after the break.

  • Animation: 6-trick pony


    Ponies in sports cars: Evolved. Usually we have just one, but this time all the ponies get a vehicle.  Click the image to go check it out!
  • 65 Episodes all at Once


    Pixeltripper has compiled all 65 pony episodes into a single video.   As much as I love pony, I don't think I can handle this much all at once.  I can't even hear Magic Duel over all of this!  If you listen closely, there is a "pony" every second or two.

    Now go challenge yourselves.  How long can you last before throwing your headphones on the floor or turning into a pony?

  • Comic: No Maturity Here / But It's About Bunnies / Just Fine


    I mention yesterday that I am greatly looking forward to more Discord comics and what do I get? Another Discord comic! Must be magic I say!

    Anyhow, click for full guys! It's comic time!


  • Discussion: Favorite Episode and Why?

    Source!
    Our ever diligent pony writers have brought us three whole seasons of ponies over the past few years. Everything our fandom has created has stemmed in some way from these creative individuals and pony would not have come as far as it has without them combined with the amazing animation, storyboarding, musical, and directing talent of the staff.

    So now that season 3 has ended and we've had some time to think and possibly rewatch episodes from this past season and before that even, what would you say is your favorite episode or episodes out of all three seasons? I know my own preferences have changed over the seasons so I'm sure the same has happened to quite a few of you as well!

  • SFM: What?


    Twilight riding a raptor with a hat on.  Why not.

    Updated with the video I forgot to add below the break. Woops!

  • Spotlight Music: Hoofdachest / Cloudchaser (In My Heart) / Demigods


    We start this one off with something completely new for once from DongleKumquat.  It's not often we break away from the dubstep/orchestral/rock trifecta!  Celebrate your ponyness in a different way for once!

    The second one rolls with some soft acoustic banjo with accompanying vocals, and we finish with another one of those epic orchestral pieces! Check them all out below the break!

    1.) Hoofdachest
    2.) Cloudchaser (In My Heart) by Caramel & Dot
    3.) Demigods - Carbon Maestro

  • Drawfriend Stuff #793


    And then the Pinkie that was actually a clone pinkie all along decided to create yet another clone army. 

    Onward to art while we clean up this mess.

  • Game: Little Pony Big War


    I don't know how many of you played Warcraft 3 custom games back in the day, but this is the best example of a tower war style pony game I've seen yet.  Farm resources while building troops and bombarding the enemy castle!  They even threw heroes in there.

    Check it out over here!
  • Saturday Livestreams and Drawfriend


    Ah, the first Saturday since finals ended for me and for many of you out there as well I hope! Why not spend a lazy Saturday afternoon with some artists as they create some pony art for you all? If you don't have the time for a stream, at least check out the art our talented pony pals made last week in the Livestream Drawfriend!

    As always with this event, if you want to partake in the madness make sure to send an email to me at calpain@equestriadaily.com with your name, the type of art you'll be doing, a gallery link (optional) a link to your livestream and a banner (also optional). Make sure that your stream follows our content guidelines as laid out under our submit tab and also make sure to that you can be ready to stream at our standard time of 4pm EST / 1pm PST on Saturday. Also, if you participated in this week's stream event please send me the art you made so I can include it in next week's Livestream Drawfriend.

  • Spotlight Instrumental Music: Destiny / The Echo


    We start this one off with a new orchestral/classical piece from TheDashDub, followed by an ambient one from Kyoga, both instrumental, and both excellent in each of their genres.  Find them below!

    1.) Destiny (By TheDashDub)
    2.) Kyoga - The Echo

  • SFM: Don't Buck with Twilight / Lyra and Bonbon SFM #2


    We have one action sequence, and one ridiculous SFM video this morning.   You might want to grab some context on that second one, or you will probably be completely confused.  The first is straight up cool though, lets hope for a full on Twilight Vs. Chrysalis battle to spawn from it!

    Anyway, get them both below the break.

  • Lauren Faust Q&A Part 2

    Oh come on, I cant even get that many of you to follow staff on Twitter anymore. Yeesh
  • Equestria Girls Ad


    A random ad has popped up showing off the Equestria Girls DVD.  It's pretty much what we expected. At least the movie might have a few minutes of poni at the beginning right?

    In other news, I never realized how skinny they are.  That's pretty much the opposite of our usual cute semi-chubby ponies.

    Thanks to Blueshift for the heads up.
