Week 160 Wrap Up

Oh, hello there, and welcome to the Ponyville Hospital.  We're ready to assist you no matter the problem.  So, what is troubling you?  Are you feeling ill?  Running a temperature?  Vomiting?  Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea?  No?  Then are you hurt, perhaps?  Did you twist your ankle, maybe?  Fall down the stairs?  Get launched off a seesaw?  Stub your hoof?  Cracked rib, bloody nose, knotted tail, bruised ego, reticulated spline... wait, you have a migraine?  And what do you mean, it just now started?  Well, I can certainly get some aspirin for you, but I don't think you needed to come to the hospital for that.

Oh, you came to visit somepony here?  Well, why didn't you just say so in the first place!  By all means, just let me know who you wish to visit and I'll escort...

*Paging Dr. Fine.  Paging Dr. Fine.*

Oops, gotta run.  Feel free to check the rooms until you find who you're looking for.  Just be careful not to disturb the other patients while doing so.

And yes, I'm totally a qualified doc-*collides with a wall*  Ow!  Uhh, you didn't see that...

Beware the hazards of frolicking, especially when you haven't the proper training for it...maybe Pinkie Pie offers classes?

Injuries are no joke, especially when your leg gets broke. - fetchbeer

“Well that didn't turn out the way they planned. I'm still breathing and YOU'RE the one with malaria. You can tell them you tried but that means nothing, doesn't it?"

It's no fun to be sick and stuck in bed, it would be nicer to be stuck anywhere else instead. - fetchbeer

Why does this pony despise pears? Lets just hope her hatred doesn't spread to stairs... - fetchbeer

How did that pony get in the well, how on earth could she have fell? - fetchbeer

Week 159 Wrap Up

All aboard! You know, I have a history with trains. It's not exactly... the best history. Of course, anytime a Pegasus is on a train it's a bad time. It'd be much better to fly there, after all. So once you get a pegasus on a train... there's already been some problem. Of course, not all train trips are the result of such issues, and many ponies commute via train every day. The train from Ponyville to Canterlot isn't that long a trip, after all.

Taking a train for work, or for play, the experience of travel itself is quite extraordinary. Of course, some ponies are less concerned with train tracks and more concerned with pain trains. Err... that is to say, no pain, no gain, that's why you train! Physical endurance, mental agility, or the stamina to push ahead. Ponies find proper training regimes of exercise, study, and more in order to better themselves. Now, this is the type of training I can get behind! Go through a couple years of training and soon enough they'll stop calling you a scrawny colt and start calling you a moderately less scrawny stallion! Err... there's that personal history creeping in again...

But we all know why we're here. A vigorous regime of drawing ponies to best train our creative minds and physical skills. Be that training on a train, or in a plane, or in a box, with a fox, on a bag of rocks, the artists below have stayed on track and come into station (And no, they will not eat your Green Eggs and Ham, regardless of physical locale or environmental factors). So wait for the luggage car to get unpacked, and let's take a look at the new arrivals to roll into the station.

01. ScuriLevenstein

Before the monster went kaput, many trains were crushed underfoot. - fetchbeer

02. Nun2artzy
Whole different meaning to 'training'

Trains falling from the sky, not a good time to be nearby. - fetchbeer

03. Maekern
She appears to be training by lifting heavy weights while flying. Why? Because it was an interesting pose to draw. I'm experimenting more with shading, though I'm trying to go easy on it so I don't just ruin things. Constructive criticism is always welcome. :)

After this her jaw must hurt, though there are easier ways to work off dessert. - fetchbeer

04. Catseye-View

She's always floating quills around, she must always be thinking something profound. - fetchbeer

05. dredaich

A young one on your back to increase the weight, better than lumps of iron more ornate. - fetchbeer

06. hip-indeed

What is Dash wanting to fight? Or did her anger just ignite? - fetchbeer

07. A Brony Account
The perfect ingredient for a REAL appletini!

Week 158 Wrap Up

Alright.  My character, Reginald Percival Gideon, will use the underslung grenade launcher on his regulation pulse gun to fire a rocket-powered grenade at the renegade pegasus general and his army of rabid pygmy goats.

*rolls a 20 sided die, getting a 1*

Oh joy, my character blew himself up.  Man, I hate getting screwed by the random probability generators...

At any rate, while I start creating a new character, you all can take a look at what everyone else has created:

Ash as a pony.

How many creatures has this pony caught? Probably not nearly as many as he's fought. - fetchbeer

03. ScuriLevenstein

They seem enraptured by these multifaceted forms, a perfect distraction from sun and storms. - fetchbeer

A giant spider is no joke, though their silk could make a nice cloak. - fetchbeer

Week 157 Wrap Up

Alright, class, find your seats... no Pinkie, not that seat.  Today we shall learn all about the wonderful device known as a chair!  Oh, you've got a question, Pinkie?


Yes, Pinkie, I promise that it will be more fun than watching paint dry.  Sigh.

Chairs have been used throughout Equestria history to provide convenient seating for ponies of all shapes and sizes.  From the great throne of Princess Celestia, to the bell-covered recliner of Star-Swirled the Bearded, to the simple stools of the local watering hole, all ponies find comfort in the sturdiness of chairs.

And now, please turn your attention to these visual aids, not only for demonstrations of ponies sitting in chairs, but also of a few other ways that ponies can sit:

01. Molecular-Structure
Done in a flash of inspiration!

What does this pony wonder as he sits? Probably not whether ponies can do the splits. - fetchbeer

02. ScuriLevenstein

03. CelestialLilo

Well that's one way to make a bit or two, though she probably just uses glue. - fetchbeer

04. Sunnybrook1
My Ponysona foal-sitting my baby nephew (also ponified). Sorry it's so late! ^^;

05. AaronMk

So many pointy edges on this seat, she may prefer one of concrete. - fetchbeer

06. dredaich

07. HalflingPony
Foal Sitting

They'd surely get in less trouble as a chair, though those cushions have a nasty glare. - fetchbeer

Since when are words bound by gravity, does Twilight not have a limit to her magical depravity? - fetchbeer

Who was this pony supposed to meet? Hopefully they'll soon show up for their treat! - fetchbeer

Week 156 Wrap Up

Alive without breath,
As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking.

 Ahhh, raw, wiggling, slippery little fishes... no wait... I mean ponies.  Hmm... Suddenly those modifiers seem less appropriate. And yet, the proper words to use elude me... they're evasive, and when I reach out to grasp at them, they just slip away out of my reach!  Curses!

But be they as slippery as an eel, or as elusive as Robert Denby, these ponies may be hard to nail down, but once you've found them, they're dependable and steadfast.  No matter how dirty these ponies may get, you can count on them to clean up their act and move ahead. Sleek and slick, or muddy and messy, ponies of all kinds slid into place in this week's theme.

So, let's take a look at our tricky catches and see what this weeks slimy and squeaky-clean ponies present:

01. Anabiyeni

The seaponies do more than sing, while to slimy seaweed they do cling. - fetchbeer

02. Para-Keet-Normal

03. Molecular-Structure

Her interest in sliding never waxes or wanes, but do do it best she needs the flattest planes. - fetchbeer

04. BluestreakFUS
It's NOT meant to be suggestive or sexy, anything related to that is a mistake from my part ._.

05. Scyphi

They seem to have tracked in a lot of mud, and I hope tis doesn't end in blood. - fetchbeer

06. ScuriLevenstein

07. AkiroAlpha
Critique and feedback is requested and greatly appreciated!

This pony must spend much time fixing up his mane, all in an effort to not seem plain. - fetchbeer

Week 155 Wrap Up

Well, despite timeline shenanigans, I think it's pretty obvious that we don't intend on stopping this train anytime soon. It keeps on rolling down the track well past the point of common sense! Madness, I tell you! Madness!

Would ponies ever say 'keep on truckin'? I don't know... they have carts and wagons. Nothing I could properly qualify as a truck. Well, I was going to make a whole bunch of jokes about the 70's here, but it feels wasted now. So instead, I'm going to continue down this line of thought.  Why? Because I refuse to stop!  I'm no quitter!

These ponies aren't quitters either. They stand up in the face of adversity, and breath determination. They fend off all who challenge them with the frantic flailing of the stick of tenacity!  They probably bite too! That's rude. Actually, I'm fairly sure these ponies don't bite. Fairly sure. All I can recommend is you observe for yourself, the strength of ponies who can not stop, and will not be stopped:
