Week 139 Wrap Up

Treasures fill this world, and for those who know where to look, they are theirs for the taking!  Ever is there talk of ancient artifacts of magnificent and deadly power being sold by simple thrift store merchants.  Or perhaps some kind of valuable comic book purchased second-hand from somepony who didn't even know it had mystical properties!  You can never know what you'll find with a little bit of hunting, some perseverance, and a lot of luck.

There is a certain joy in finding something wonderful among the discarded.  To find those items which have been cast off by others, broken, useless, unwanted, and then to reshape them.  To give them new purpose, or to give them better purpose!  To remake and reforge the trash of the past into the treasure of the future.  Does it ennoble the object, to give it a grander purpose?  Trash can be made into new treasure with hard work, creating an item which many desire.

And of course, for others, the definition of treasure does not merely rest in items of great worth. A diamond in the rough, some call them.  Those who might appear on the outside to be uninteresting, afraid, dull, or shy. Treasures which lie within the heart of some ponies, and it can take love and caring to nurture it to the surface, to see the gem of their true selves, and realize that deep down, a treasure awaits...

Such it is with the art found within this weeks wrap-up.  Found treasures, made treasures, and treasures from the heart... There is no trash here, only wonders for one and all:

Week 138 Wrap Up

Fortune is a fickle mistress.  She offers with one hoof, and she takes away with the other.  The trade winds guide many along their way, ponies seeking fortunes by wind or by wave.  The world is vast, and filled with many wonderful things, some in plain sight, and some hidden.  It takes dedication, hard work, and a bit of luck... fortunes are out there to be made...

...and fortunes are out there to be lost.  Put your bits down, sidle up to the table, and play for keeps.  Your opponents all have their tells.  A bad bluff may be your key to winning big! But one bad turn of the cards, and everything might be gone.  Fortunes shift and change, as variable as weather, and twice as fierce.

Ahhhhhh, but Fortune smiles upon those who seek it this week!   Just take a look below at what riches have been come across our path :

Week 137 Wrap Up

Alright, it's time for everypony to come out from their homes and rejoice! The unending storms have passed, the Queen has returned with full control of her powers, and the country is once again at peace. With the skies once again clear and the temperature returning to summer norms, it is time to celebrate! And what better way to do so than with art. And conveniently, art is something we have. You guys have taken quite a liking to this theme, it seems. We've got pictures of the Queen, of course, along with some airborne ponies, a few stray ice monsters, and Discord... well, being Discord. But let's not keep everypony waiting, eh? It's time to show what you've created:

Week 136 Wrap Up

Ah, a new year from the traditional calendar of our friends from the east; and with it, a new animal - so long, snake!  It's time for the Year of the Pony!

What?  You mean - ?  Huh.

Well, I've just been informed that it is not, in fact, The Year of the Pony.  Technically, it's the Year of the Horse.  To that I say - ponies, horses...  it's close enough!  We're all equines, here, so let's ring in this new year of all things four-legged and hooved!  Let fly the fireworks, and let's have a look at what all you've done for this fine week of Asian Ponies! :D

01. sixhorsepower

This pony celebrates a special year,and for 12 months he won't disappear. - fetchbeer

You've done well, and this is gorgeous.  Welcome! :D  -Lunar

I hope it is good enough (am I too late °~° ? )
