I guess this is what EqD would look like if it was a magazine! A lot of thanks to Daniel for coming up with this awesome cover!
News time guys, get it after the break!
BABSCon's guest list continues to strengthen as they proudly announce the attendance of Claire Corlett and her father Ian Corlett! It'd be amazing if we can get all the CMC at the convention wouldn't it?
Check on after the break for the full presser!
Day 11, there's no knowing if we'll ever wind up showing any signs that we are slowing down this pace oh hey look it's snowing but out there I see you growing both as artists and as people and as lovers of this whole thing and how far can I stretch this rhyme scheme until it snaps oh look there it's go...ing. Yup, definitely didn't miss my calling here. Let's just ignore my horrible attempts at rhythm and humor and get ourselves helped up about today's total, measuring in at a robust 414 festive little ponies and/or aspiring punsters! We're 2/3 of the way through our event, with a grand total of 5697 images to show for it! 'Tis the season to draw ponies, after all!
Our prize today is a new one, a frankly awesome print from the ever excellent folks at Shapeways! These things are really cool and make super awesome desk decorations, so don't miss this chance to snag one of your own. Plus, you know, getting the chance to draw ponies is pretty darn cool too, right?
Our Day 9 winner clocks in at #138, with a heroic little Applebloom toughing out a blizzard in the middle of a skiing trip. Congratulations to Agreenbrick! We'll be in touch shortly, so keep an eye on your e-mail!
It's funny how both long and short 10 days can feel, especially when you're pushing through an event like this. Some of you are thinking, "Is it really only Day 11? We've been here forever!" and others are doubtlessly thinking, "Wow, what? How is it already Day 11?!" And somehow both of these thoughts are equally valid. Perception is a weird thing. But however you feel about it, our little ponies have been going through a lot. But they, like you, need to dig deeper and keep pushing. You've got it in you, I know it. Tonight, Draw a pony stretching/Draw a pony on thin ice. Maybe those don't seem related, but they are.
Submit all entries here by December 12 at 9 PM Mountain Standard Time, remembering as always that it's fine to be a couple of hours late if that's what life has done to you. But before that, we've got treats for everyone in the form of a wrappariffic gallery! Head on down below the break to see for yourself!
previous forays into the pony world, have released this one up above for the holidays. If you want it, different options can be found over here!

Crazy how well it did. Hopefully you all keep reading the comics now! They really are a great way to kill the hiatus.
Rainbow Dash is too much of a badass for these crazy robot things and their silly free pizza. But how does she handle the power going out? Head on down below the break for another short animation with yet another Five Nights at Freddies Theme. Seriously I'm going to make a blog for that game now. Look at Mando's most recent song for how ridiculously popular it is.
STOP THE BATS, remix edition. Some didn't like the song, I loved the song. I can't help it. It speaks to me.
And after that, some soft acoustic stuff from Woodlore! Get both below.
1.) Stop the Bats (Notion Remix) (Remix - Electronic)
2.) My Sweet Peace - WoodLore (Vocal - Acoustic)
Can you imagine literally absorbing every bit of knowledge while flying around? You could have someone hold up pages from a Japanese language book and learn the entire thing in an hour.
Anyway, get some Rainbow Dash below.

If you happen to be collecting promos, tins, or boxes from both the MLP CCG and normal series, these guys have started appearing over at Walmart. As always, expect the tins to contain:
- Foil Promo Card
- 4 card packs
- A dog tag
- A poster of the art on the tin.
And for the normal box, you will find
- 3 card packs
- A sticker
- A Poster of the pony on the box.
These images in particular were found at Walmart, but I'm sure multiple big box retailers will have them.
Thanks to Remington for the heads up.
We have more concept images of knockoff pony plushies out of those random factories in China appearing on the internet. At the moment, they haven't migrated over to eBay, but I'm sure they will soon. As always, buy at your own risk if you do run into them! I still haven't gotten the paint on my Zecora tested for lead yet.
Thanks to Pukyguso for the heads up.

If you can pull those off, or you are just curious in general, get the video below!
We need a better title for these sneak peaks. As awesome as they are, "Single Panel Out of Context Sneak Peek" is a mouthful to say and write.
Anyways, naming issues aside, we have a single panel sneak peek from the ever talented Agnes Garbowska from her upcoming work on the Spike and Luna Friends Forever issue. What possible secrets does the panel reveal about the upcoming detective story featuring our two favorite sleuths?
I have no idea, but I'm sure one of you do!
Of course, for those who want to be spoiled (even just a tiny bit), you can find the panel after the break!
