We were looking for a new way to do these posts last week, but after seeing the flood, our new person who was interested decided he wasn't interested anymore. It's pretty insane this season! You are all a little overwhelming on the reviewing.
So, we are just going to do it the usual way. I've included Buckball in this one, since we never got a post up for it. Below the break, get a ton of reviews of both that and glorious Gabby griffoning around.
Well everyone, here we are. Tonight is our very final gallery for the ATG, you've all graduated and now it is time to move on. It's been a joy to watch you all grow throughout this little event and as I've mentioned I'm so proud of all your work.
For our final day you all pulled in 63 ponies bringing our final total to 5607 ponies altogether, an impressive number I must say. Just imagine it, in just one month you all have added thousands of ponies to the fandom and if you take your lessons here to heart hopefully thousands more in the future. You all are what help keep the fandom vibrant and alive and for that I salute you all. Keep it up, we're counting on you but most importantly make sure to have fun!
With the ATG done it might be a little scary to head out there and think of prompts on your own or to continue your motivation, but I have one last gift for you to help you out as you head out into the world of pony art on your own. Graduates of ATGs past have set up up a group on deviantart tackling a vast number of prompts and helping each other grow as artists! Calling themselves the ATG Alumni Group they are an excellent resource for tutorials to help you hone your craft and find support from folks who undertook the same journey. You can find a link to them below.
Now with great pleasure, I give you our final gallery after the break!
If you have any prompt suggestions please leave them in the comments!

I've been writing editorials all day so drawfriend is a little bit late. Turns out writing about games is really fun. Expect a lot of those in the next few days.
And below the break, your pony art! Go get it.

I think Twilight just might be in violation of some very important ethics rules... But I guess when you're the Princess of Friendship it's ok! Science on crazy horse!
Comics guys, get your updates after the break!
The pony fandom lives it some video games. We've had more crossover here than just about anything thanks to how easy it is to "Ponify" things. Time to start up a new series celebrating it!
We still haven't really gotten much love in this department from the big wigs over at Hasbro. The mobile offerings are basic and filled with ways to milk as many dollars as possible off kids, and the flash side usually doesn't last longer than an hour or two.
Originally the plan was to just write a single post with 10 potential game companies and call it good, but I, and the others here in our various EQD chats quickly discovered that we have way more to say than we originally thought. For the sake of really diving into each one, I'm splitting it up. It may be daily or bi-daily. Some may cover multiple companies. And if we have enough fun with it, we might go past 10.
Anyway, lets start with a pretty obvious one! Many of you have fallen in love with Nintendo games over the years just as much as I have. Below the break, we dive into why they would be one of the best companies out there to build us a pony game!
Description: Semper Pie is one of Equestria's most honored and decorated soldiers. Protector of the innocent, hero of countless battles, champion of all ponykind. Even Shining Armor, Captain of the Royal Guard, looks up to this great stallion. Truly one of the best and greatest ponies to have ever served under the Royal Sister's banner. Still, where did he come from? Where was he born? Does he have any family? Why would he suddenly want to come to Ponyville? And why, for the love of Celestia, does he specifically want to meet with the Element of Laughter?Semper Pie
Additional Tags: Meet Pinkie's long lost (more like forgotten) brother: Semper Pie.
If you remember the Journal of the Two Sisters from a few years ago, expect to see it done in Equestria Girls land. A new book has been announced by Hatchett for 2017 following Luna and Celestia as they relive their time at Canterlot High School in diary format.
Head on down below the break for the details!
Probably one of my favourite tracks from Vylet's Super Pony World album, Great Unknown is about as ambitious a track as the title suggests. With some really well done vocal harmonies, and a whole bunch of different styles crammed in, this is definitely one of Vylet's best works. Not really much else to say, except that this is definitely worth checking out.
Quite a few people have been trying to find this one, including for crazy prices over on eBay. Search no more! Walmart has a listing of the Crystal Empire playset completely available for the typical retail prices of $39.
Head on over here to pick it up.
Thanks to Carolann for the heads up!
Heh, this is a short and simple summation of all the battles Twilight has ever fault it seems. I feel for you Twilight, I really do.
Comics guys, get the rest after the break!
Something a bit different to his usual works, here Sights Unseen delivers a really beautiful piano-centric track, wonderfully accented with some gentle strings, and rolling thunder in the distance. I was quite surprised to hear something like this from him, but I have to say, for somebody who, according to the description, recently discovered they could play the piano, this definitely sounds quite stunning.
The Legend of Everfree soundtrack is now officially available for pre-order over on iTunes just one day after it's teasing over on Twitter. Six songs are listed on it, though that might not be an exact representation on what is in the movie.
Head on over here if you want it!
Update: Also on Google Play
Update 2: Now on Spotify and Youtube for streaming
Thanks to RainShadow and Brent for the heads up!
I wonder how often Rarity takes Sweetie Belle out on little shopping trips and such? They are rather close after all so they must spend time together outside the little adventures we see on the show.
Morning guys! Ready for your Friday?
