Week 144 Wrap Up

A hat! A hat! My kingdom for a hat! Or was that a horse? I don't even know...

But yes, hats! Hats, headdresses, and various other forms of headwear, that's what we've got this week. Everything from cowboy hats and classic wizard wear, to high-tech regalia and even other ponies! But let's not lose our heads over all of this, and instead just see what we've got:

Nope that is not Pinkie Pie whatsoever.

This pony seems to have a brand new face, not an easy thing to replace! - fetchbeer

02. Cynos-Zilla

03. K4nK4n (aka Applestack)
Applestack's hat always makes her look fancy, no matter what mood or present fashion she's in.

She's spent some time working out, so that her muscles become a thing to flout. - fetchbeer

04. MixedScales
Heavy is the head that wears that crown.

05. ScuriLevenstein

Leave creatures be in their habitat, even if you want their hat. - fetchbeer

06. Catseye-View

07. Cobralash

Heavy not is the head that wears this crown, though it may be different when she comes down. - fetchbeer

That does not seem to be a hat, though it seems to have caused some combat! - fetchbeer

11. Abyssal Emissary
Don't ask. I haven't got a clue.

So many ponies on this chapeau, though they might cause some pain in that neck below. - fertchbeer

This bunny is not happy about the pancake, and some heads he may soon break. - fetchbeer

Week 143 Wrap Up

Ah, excellent, you're here.  I've been reviewing the reports, and I have to say, I'm impressed.  Everything is filled out properly, all the panels are colored and... what's that you say?  These are comic books?  Well I'm not entirely sure what that has to do with this discussion.  You see, my inbox is very full... yes, those are more comic books.  They are printed on paper, no?  I didn't say what kind of paperwork I'd be reviewing today, did I?  What?  You thought I would be reading dry performance reviews?  Ha... no.

See, this office is in a bit of a disarray... ever since the new manager came on board, and switched all the new systems over from e-mail to paper airplane, well, it's harder to get your message to the right person, that's for sure.  You need really good aim.  And possibly a lot of airplanes.  It's harder than it looks.  But well, morale is way up of course.

But yes, as I was saying.   Your review.  There's a lot of really good stuff in here.   In fact, here.  I know I'm not supposed to let you see your internal review... but well, I think we can all agree that there's some stuff you need to see in here.  What's that?  A raise?  Well... we can talk about that later.  But first, let's take a look at the art at hand.  And please, let me be the first to encourage more doodling on your meeting notes.

01. neme567
Discord, that is not the way you work with paperworks.

There's nothing I would rather do, than my job and paperwork eschew. - fetchbeer

02. Cobralash

03. ScuriLevenstein

Be wary of what you put into your magic dragon, or to deliver mail you'll need a wagon. - fetchbeer

04. Goggle Sparks

05. TheBigApple

Always yelling about the losing teams, as they run about with their petty schemes. - fetchbeer

07. Abyssal Emissary
I did it at night. Just like Luna. Luna best pony!

Week 142 Wrap Up

Ponies are an innately gregarious species, and any given pony will typically spend as much time as possible in the company of other ponies. Work is typically done in teams to make the job go faster, while recreation is likewise done in groups to make the time more enjoyable.

But this is not always the case, and sometimes, whether by happenstance or intent, a pony must go it alone. Perhaps a workmate is out sick, or a friend got called away for an urgent task. Perhaps they themselves got called in for an urgent job, and had no time to find somepony to assist them. Perhaps their family accidentally left them behind when they went on vacation, and... well, you know the rest. Or perhaps they simply wish to be alone for a time. Not every pony is as gregarious as the species as a whole typically is, and even the most outgoing of ponies needs a little alone time now and then.

But at any rate, you came here to look at art, not listen to me ramble. So I shall now leave you be, so that you can see what's been created:

And yes, he loves the original Snow Queen fairy tale. P.S. Don't tell anybody, that will ruin his reputation.

There are some secrets you hope no one will discover, though you could always just conceal the cover. - fetchbeer

03. Goggle Sparks

04. Catseye-View

Pinkie is never quite completely alone, there's always someone to help eat her scone. - fetchbeer

05. dredaich

06. ScuriLevenstein

Ponies with parts of their names removed, though for one at least their mood improved. - fetchbeer

07. Frostspear

08. Abyssal Emissary

Alone despite being in a crowd, that's something that should not be allowed. - fetchbeer

Week 141 Wrap Up

Water. It is the very essence of life itself. Nopony can survive long without water; indeed, roughly 60% of a pony's body is composed of water. Water can also be a source of entertainment. Everything from a water parks to diving trips, from whitewater rafting to a simple day at the beach, water provides enjoyment of both the relaxing and exciting variety.

But water can also be a source of hardships and danger; hence the phrase 'up a creek without a paddle' to represent a difficult or dangerous situation that one has no control over. But now it's time to stop talking about all of this water, and actually show the pictures created to represent this week's theme:

There are times you must find a thing to fight, and it's best to do it while the day is bright. - fetchbeer

02. Happy Switch
Up a creek, and allllll out of paddles.

There's nowhere left to fly or run, and you're out of bullets for your gun. - fetchbeer

03. dredaich

This pony must feel rather small, for they are about to go over a waterfall! - fetchbeer

04. Catseye-View

Lifting fish in spheres of water, cooling off as the weather gets hotter. - fetchbeer

05. Still Waters

Gliding across the smooth blue water, though you may wish you were an otter. - fetchbeer

06. Philith
"Don't worry, I know exactly how to handle this." - Sweetie Belle, repeatedly tempting the Gods.

There are places fillies should not tread, and this one should fill them with dread. - fetchbeer

Week 140 Wrap Up

A simple thing, perhaps.  A strip of cloth, worn across the neck, near the face to be pulled up for warmth.  But there's a certain charm to scarves, which makes them so much more than just a utilitarian piece of clothing.  They can be any color under the rainbow, they can be long or short, tasseled, stringed, silken, wool, the list goes on!

Popular outside of winter as a fashion statement.  A little knit wool fabric strip is all it is, and yet it can catch the eye, accentuate an outfit, or by itself... define a look.  Or a dozen looks.  For some ponies, a different scarf for every ensemble, for others, one dependable scarf is best, like an old friend.

So, bundle up with a bandanna, slip into a shawl, bedeck a boa, wear a wrapping, or adorn an ascot!  Let's take a look at the unique designs and styles of some be-scarved ponies... because when it's cold outside and...

Scarves are hot.

01. Rocket Quillwing

I've never seen something so blinding, as this scarf that is a winding. - fetchbeer

02. Lord Bababa
Nothin' terribly unique or great but uh... hey I submitted something in here for once!

03. Still Waters

Is this pony bundled up to go outdoors? Or so that he can go rob stores? - fetchbeer

04. Cobralash

05. LionCrossing

That scarf seems absurdly long, but to tie ponies together it must be strong. - fetchbeer

06. ImpCJCaesar

07. AaronMk

The very picture of a pony bandito, though this one is probably after a burrito. - fetchbeer

08. Catseye-View

09. HalflingPony
You look cold...

Warmth is a wonderful thing to share, anything to fight the chilly air. - fetchbeer

My artwork for the 'Scraf' theme :)

Does a pegasus really need to worry much, for the ground they so rarely touch. - fetchbeer

12. dredaich

13. ScuriLevenstein

Magicians always seem to get carried away, and so many scarves tend to go astray. - fetchbeer

14. Goggle Sparks

15. Philith

What kind of pony would do this thing, I sure hope it's not long till spring. - fetchbeer

16. Silverwisp
Going for the obvious choice....

Hopefully not too late.
