Dang, when I said to draw a pony burning out I didn't expect something so sad. You guys are getting good at hitting all spots along the emotional spectrum aren't you? Keep it up you guys, I'm so proud of the variety you all are putting into these prompts! That creativity and determination netted us 118 ponies and bumping our total to 4305 ponies in all!
As a reward for all your hard work I thought it would be a good time, especially since it is Labor Day weekend, to have another Makeup Day! That's right, for today's assignment all you have to do is either catch up on past prompts which you can find here, tackle a prompt you liked before or take the day off to recharge your artistic batteries. As usual, find the submitter here!
On to the gallery we go my friends!
With the massive success of pony on the Japanese version of Netflix, Hasbro looks to be shifting focus back over to that market. They have a brand new pile of stuff to flood stores with, along with their online shop. Unfortunately, none of this will ship international.

Thanks to Ayu for sending all of it!
That first one's song brings me way back. I actually played it a few times in the background. Maybe it's time to download me some oldschool 90's and early 2000's punk rock. I'm so old.
Anyway, we have two PMVs in this one for you all, primarily focusing on scenes and excellent syncing with some interesting usage of motion graphics. Go get them both below!
While we still don't have any official confirmation on the 7th season yet, we do have a new voice actress joining the pony family as a whole. Janyse Jaud, an actress involved in Ed Edd n Eddy, Inuyasha, Marvel, as Pinkie Pie in the direct to video 'Twinkle Wish Adventure' and more will be voicing a new pony according to her Twitter page.
Fingers crossed it some season 7! As far as I have seen, most of the voice acting announcements have already happened for the movie. It could very well be a late addition to the cast over there though.
Thanks to Feather Data for the heads up.
I'm not gonna lie. The OC pony section in this one is my favorite of the two areas this time. Some of those ponies are Fluttershy level cute.
Get the arts below!

Jim has been answering questions over on Twitter and this tidbit of information came up when a fan asked if he had any involvement with Guardians of Harmony. He replied saying that as far as he was aware it was just the name of a toy line.
While we have posted before that Hasbro has trademarked the series in regards to the production of "entertainment services, namely an on-going animated television series for children" it's possible all along that it was just done to cover all the trademark bases for the property. It's also possible they could still be thinking of a spin-off series or maybe took out the trademark in case they ever wanted to visit turning the line into a show down the line.
All we do know is that Jim isn't working on anything related to GoH and so far he is only aware of the brand as a toy line.
Thanks to Jess for sending it in!
The My Little Pony Create-a-Card Contest is in full swing, and the contest gallery has been updated to highlight seven hoof-picked entries.
If you missed last week's announcement, 9 (or more!) lucky winners are going to get their art on cards in the new official MLP Trading Cards, 10 copies of their card to give to friends and family, and a booster box of trading card packs to roll around in like Scrooge McDuck.
The deadline is September 12th, so if you're interested there's still time to join in - check out the full details and the official entry form.
In the meantime, head below the break to see some of the entries and maybe brainstorm a few ideas on what you could do for your own trading card image!

The Legends of Everfree book is now 43% off on Amazon right before it's September 6th release next week. The description on this one is pretty much a perfect match for the movie, but they tend to veer off or run a side story if the earlier ones are any indication. Head on down below to avoid the spoilers!
Another week another episode. If you saw the SPOILER yesterday, you are probably just as hype as I am. We also got a trailer with less spoily things.
And while you are here, waiting, the BEST of PMV Archive launched a few days ago. The next wave of updates is going out soon, but for now it has a ton of stuff to watch while we sit around counting the hours until, new pony!
Anyway, get your parties and streams below.
