Summer may be slowing drawing to a close here in the northern hemisphere, but AJ doesn't mind: that's when the apples start to ripen and we get all of that delicious cider!
The Roundup is here again guys, get your news after the break!
Following Cadance for this month, September looks to be releasing Discord as the official MLP Magazine figure of choice. I wonder what crazy story he will have in this one?
If anyone has the Cadance magazine, we'd love to post the comic! Send it on over!
Thanks to Ryan and Rainbow for the image.
I think Applebuck Season was the first episode of pony that really showed me how crazy a show about little pastel horses could be. I look back fondly on that little episode all these years later.
Evening my friends, ready to chat?
With the Artist Training Ground in less than a week I thought I'd give a reminder to people who saw or even missed out first post some days ago. You can find the gist of things over on that first page so go and check it out!
Now that the event is so close here's what you need to know about submitting pictures so that you can get an appropriate gallery set up in time for the event!
Also to address a question I saw a lot in the comments of the last post: OCs are welcome it doesn't need to be canon ponies. Other species from the MLP universe are welcome too, so feel free to draw dragons, zebras, gryphons, yaks, timberwolves, Breezies, donkeys, Equestria Girls style characters, anthro, ect as long as you feel comfortable drawing them for the day's prompt.
Also, images must be Safe for work!
Finally, all skill levels are welcome from those who have never drawn before up to those who have been drawing for several years. All are welcome to participate!
Now check out what art sources you can use and how to get the URL for your images for submission after the break!
There were at least 6 images in here I wanted to use as a header, but how can I resist this incredible piratey pony? I want to go pillage the Carribbean with her and eat oranges while watching the stars to avoid scurvy.

Comm: Stowaway Solar Spark by pridark
Author: Derek (Daemon of Decay)
Description: Fluttershy knows it is her honor, her destiny, to have been born into the Lunar Guard. She knows it with all her heart. But sometimes, when she can get away from her drills and be alone with her animals, she is beset by doubt. Sometimes, as she straps on her armor and raises her spear, she wonders why there is so much disharmony in the world. Sometimes she feels like Equestria is missing a little kindness.

We don't often get Spanish animations. Usually Russia dominates our non-english releases. Hopefully this is a new trend! A group called M-DStudious has done a neat little skit involving 2 OC ponies and Trixie. Poor Trixie.
Get it below. Be sure to turn subtitles on.
If my backpack or car sprouted eyes and started talking in musical notes, I'd probably double-check the last thing I drank. Not a problem for the CMC, who know what those eyes mean.
Let's talk about the Cutie Mark Crusaders' Micro. Beware of spoilers if you haven't read this comic yet!
Why is it that everything ponified from Asia is always really neat? We have another one of those, complete with boatloads of motions graphics and some custom YTPMV style music in the background. I, for one, am impressed.

If you've been to a convention over on the east cost, you may have run into Bonnie Zacherle. She's the original mind behind My Little Pony way back in the 80's. With the sudden re-interest thanks to Friendship is Magic, she has created a book talking about the history behind how it happened, in 30 full color pages.
If that sounds interesting to you, head on over here to pick it up!
Thanks to CMDR Drragon and everyone else for the heads up.
The UK is playing host to yet another Friendship Tour, where a bus travels around the country with pony related activities for kids, while showing off various pony toys that are releasing or have released recently. This one is covering everything from the books to the giant Crystal Empire Playset.
Head on down below the break for the infographic!
Parties are about to get more pony. The Twilight Sparkle balloon up above was found in a town called Glina in Croatia. When convered over to USD, she cost only $7, which is pretty standard for that style of balloon.
As for when or if she will ever take a trip over to other countries, I guess we will just have to keep our eyes peeled!
Thanks to Antonio for the heads up.
