Weekly Wrap Up 3!

Where does the time go? Already we're done with another week, and a crop of entries to show for it!

This week's theme was Poison Joke, and you all really stepped up to the plate! We've got a total of 80 entries; covering everything from the just the flower itself, to it's effects, to the multitudes of possible puns on the subject. Good work, everypony! :D

I feel like I really should have more to talk about, but this post is sort of last-minute for me! So... yeah! Enough of my blathering, on with the art!

Also, a special thanks to LegendaryM4n for this week's banner! It's really quite nice!

And if you're new to this blog and wondering just what this is all about, head over to our DeviantArt page and join in!

  1. Madness. Great work everypony! Everyone is popping out great stuff, and I know the next theme is gonna be crazy. Hope I have time to do it and WTG as well...

    Also, for my pic, I have a tiny lil context story.

    As she runs from the possessed brushes, the gleeful chilly voices of those that now hunt her call out: "Brushie Brushie, Colgate. Brushie Brushie, forever and ever..."

  2. Just brilliant work everypony. That we're still seeing so many entries, and of such high quality just floors me :D
    Well done to everyone who submitted this week. Comment or not we really appreciate that you put in the time to make these pictures, and we hope you have a good time doing it too.

  3. I really wanted to leave comments. But gdocs locked me out =(. And now I am too sleepy to makes sense of this.

    Curse nighttime

  4. Sorry Kits!
    We'll make sure things are a bit better organised next week for ye :)

  5. I know I said it in the post above, but I'll say it again - this is brilliant work, everypony! I wish I could have left a comment on every entry (I kept having to hold myself back!), but I know that's just not the way it's done.

    Amazing work, all! I'm so proud to be a part of this group with all of you :)

  6. I think this wound up being my favorite week of the Alumni Group thus far. I guess that was predictable, what with it being a giant excuse to make puns and bad jokes at other ponies' expense.

    Everypony, you did wonderfully. Creative use of the prompt, and brilliant execution all around. I giggled so hard. I would dearly love to leave a comment for each and every one of you, but it's fast approaching 4 am, and I'm afraid in my current state of mind I'm too likely to skip over something, and I don't want to do that. So in the interest of fairness, please consider this my tip of the hat and enthusiastic clopplause to each and every one of you.

    Maybe if I took to leaving comments on the DA pages themselves as they get released...

  7. I stand in awe of this amount of art.
    And something inside me is growing. I am proud.
    Proud to be part of this group.

    YOU guys are awesome. This group is taking so much time of my life right now, and I don't regret spending one second on it!

    Looking forward to comment next week! :D

    Btw, Lunar: Remember, what you requested, after you posted the link in the chat? I found something, ehe-hehe!

  8. Once again, the art here is awesome.
    To the point of it almost being worrisome.
    Poison Joke seems to get some Zecora art out of the woodwork,
    which indeed is a reward itself for this kind of "hard work."
    Kudos to everyone who arted this week,
    and let's what wonders next we peek.
    I'm not sure why am I rhyming everything like certain zebra we know,
    but I'll be damned if I stop only because it seems like such a low blow.

  9. This is awesome! I agree with Phoe that this is the best theme so far. Everybody did a great job. I felt I could of done better though. Really loving this poison joke. Great job Everypony!

  10. Gods above, below, and a little to the left, I drew Nightmare Moon's head huge.

    I think I overcompensated for the whole 'being a filly' thing.

    But hey. It's the 'training' ground for a reason, amirite?

  11. @Delta: Just smile, nod, and pretend it was a deliberate result of the Poison Joke. That's the best way to do things.

    So, what I (79 woo) learned this week is that one should not attempt drawing Spike for the first time when there are less than two hours left before the deadline. It's less than ideal.
