• Nightly Discussion #22


    It would certainly be loving to hang out with all the princesses at some point don't you think? All the history, knowledge, and discussion between the four would be perfect to fill an afternoon with. Plus they're adorable which also helps!

    Time for another casual chat session gang!

  • Animation: Shine


    The thing I love about this fandom is its ability to surprise me! That out of nowhere can come some really beautiful work that I, and most of us, didn't even know was in the works. Shine is one of those examples! Utilizing fluid animation, great VA work, and wonderful music it all combines together to make a lovely 4-5 minute film all done with OCs.

    Even though I didn't know the context behind the characters and the scene I still found it a heartwarming piece. If you'd like to get some more information on the characters before (or after) diving into the film, check out the tumblr here.

    Check after the break for the lovely film itself!

  • Drawfriend Stuff #1196


    With all of this World Cup news going on, it seems fitting to have this as a header. It's funny how wide this fandom goes.  During the Super Bowl, my Skype groups were dead silent.  The World Cup on the other hand is exploding in there.

    Yep, I'm late on the Tumblr Spotlight once again, con season has had me busy as heck getting ready and running every which way so I have been a bit distracted. After EFNW is over I think I'll have some more time for these and Artist Spotlights so let's hope for the best!

  • Design a Pony Cadance Appears


    The design a pony line may require a bit of work to get looking good, but the molded figurines are pretty well done all things considered.  With a Funko Cadance not even hinted at yet, this may be the best way to get that show accurate fix when it comes to Candybutt.  We also have Fluttershy Rainbow Power style joining her, though it doesn't look like the toy is that much different from the old one.

    Found over at Entertainment Earth.  Expect both in August. 

    Thanks to Twidizzle for the heads up!
