Week 270 Wrap Up

Chitter clack. Clickety chirp chirp, buzzbuzzbuzz! Uhh... Clacky thorax? Hmm. Trying to communicate in bug-speak doesn't seem to be working; I'm just getting confused looks from all of you. Maybe it would work better if I actually knew an insect language.

So yeah, no more attempts at insect speak. If I'm not careful, I could accidentally say something rude about a changeling's mother. And you wouldn't want a changeling mad at you! And why do you not want a changeling mad at you, you might ask? Because they're master pranksters! And believe me, you do not want to find yourself involved in a prank war with a shapeshifter!

But thankfully, we don't need to worry about that now, as pranks were last week's theme. So go ahead and enter our gallery now, and peruse this weeks artistic creations without any fear of me being a changeling in disguise that will put 'Kick me' signs on your backs as soon as you walk past me.

No seriously, I'm not a changeling. Would this face lie to you? *fangy grin*

There was a bet between the two regarding the new soup recipe she was being taught. This is the result of that bet.

Week 269 Wrap Up

Ah, you've come to visit the gallery to see the new art this week, eh? Well, I'm so sorry, but the gallery is just closing for the night. You'll need to return tomorrow to see everything, I'm afraid. Have a good night, and see you tomorrow!


Hah, got ya! I bet you actually thought the gallery was closing for the night, didn't you? But nope, it was just a prank. Because that's the theme for this week: Jokes and Pranks! So feel free to peruse the gallery and see what other shenanigans the various ponies have been getting....

Wait, what are you planning to do with those tomatoes? Uhh, gotta go!

Some don't obey the giant hook, and just give it that certain look. - fetchbeer

02. G-DO-29--Anagram
I'm probably the only one who can take such a benign phrase (IE, taking the act of doing a prank and calling it a joke and turning it into questioning my own art style as being unnoticed and unclassifiable and calling it a joke in and of itself) and turn it into something heavy. If this is too contrived for this week's theme, then feel free to reject this image, and if not, then just remove this sentence.

Don't give in to chronic doubt, you are on the proper route. - fetchbeer

Week 268 Wrap Up

As the old saying goes, "Into everypony's life, a little rain must fall." And the Art Gallery is no exception to that, unfortunately. And I say 'unfortunately' because the rain came in the form of a rain of go-karts. Seriously, we had a number of go-karts crash through the roof of the gallery! Or at least parts of go-karts, as none of them were actually intact before impact. Apparently there was a massive crash at the annual Applewood Derby, and pieces of the crashed karts went flying throughout Ponyville. I have no idea why the ponies in charge of the race built a track that crosses over itself multiple times, as it really was just an accident begging to happen. Though from what I've heard, the track layout isn't solely to blame. Apparently there were three ponies in the race who... well, let's just say that some ponies take things far too seriously.

Thankfully, the Ponyville Repair Team treats their job with just the right amount of seriousness, and thusgot the roof repairs done with plenty of time to spare for this evening's debut. But that isn't at all surprising, given how much experience the Ponyville Repair Team has. You know, living right next door to the Everfree Forest, and all that.

But without further ado, may I present to you our new gallery! This week's them is... huh, racing and crashing. Perhaps the Applewood Derby wasn't the only accident waiting to happen this week.

Week 267 Wrap Up

Dana nana nana nana
Nana nana nana nana, Batmare!

This week's theme, as I had originally suggested it, was "Brains vs Action". But Invidlord quickly came up with the better phrasing seen in the DA Journal, "An Action Pony / A Clever Pony". After all, brains and action don't need to be mutually exclusive, as Batmare has shown on many occasions. And Daring Do as well, for that matter.

But having both of these present in a story doesn't require them to be present in a single character. Many duos and teams will have at least one member who is action-oriented, and at least one who is clever. Just look at the Mane 6 themselves: Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle are good representatives for action and cleverness respectively, and neither one is the only member of the group that can fit the role in question.

So with that in mind, let's direct our attention to the pictures in this week's gallery. Some of them focus on a single concept, while others represent a combination of the two, but they all are impressively done!

It's not MLP, but it's a show about talking horses that I'm optimistic about.
