Week 274 Wrap Up

Hello hello there, everypony! Step right up and prepare to be amazed! Amazed by what, you may ask? Why, my astounding sales pitch, of course! For I, my dear pony friends, have a bridge to sell you.

And not just any bridge, mind you, but the world famous Bronclyn Bridge! Built more than a century ago, it remains to this day one of the architectural wonders of Manehattan. One crossed by thousands of Manehattanites on a daily basis, mind you. Why, imagine the money that would come rolling in if one were to set up a toll booth on the bridge. Indeed, the bits would just come rolling in!

And speaking of bits, it is time to start the bidding! And we'll set the starting bid at... what was that? You say there's a police officer heading this way?

Err, for completely unrelated reasons, I suddenly find myself needing to be, uhh... elsewhere. Yes, elsewhere. Until such a time as I return, feel free to wander through this gallery of artwork I'm conveniently standing in front of. Within it's walls, you'll find plenty of examples of ponies engaging in completely honest and upstanding behavior. You have my word on it! But for now, gottagobye!

Week 273 Wrap Up

OhWowYou'reAllHere! ThisIsSoAwesome! I'mSoGladToSeeYouAllHereToday, AndWhatDoYouMeanI'mTalkingTooFast?

Oh, whoops. Sorry about that. I guess I got a little carried away... Okay, yes. A lot carried away. But can you blame me for getting a little excited, or a lot, when being energetic and excited is the theme for the week? This is such a great theme idea and it'll result in some great action poses and ItTotallyWasn'tEvenMyIdeaAndI'mDoingItAgain,Aren'tI?

Ahem. Well, I'll let you go ahead and view the gallery now, before my vocal chords go overboard again. But I just can't help it! This theme has just got me so excited AndIJustCan'tContainMyselfAnd, err... right. Well, that'll be all from me, so feel free to peruse the gallery now.

Week 272 Wrap Up

Ah, you're here. Forgive me for being brief, but I have a game to get back to. My friend challenged me to see who can score the most points by the end of the day, and the competition is fierce! And what makes it so challenging is that the rules are constantly changing! It's like having Discord as the ruleskeeper, but without the issues of actual chaos magic.

Nonetheless, competition is the name of the game this week! Unless you're not the competitive type, in which case having fun is the name of the game this week. Of course, whether or not someone is competitive typically depends on whether or not they have fun engaging in competitions. And admittedly, I typically don't find competition all that much fun. But even someone like me can find entertainment in a competitive event when you're competitors are good friends! And when they don't take things too seriously, of course.

Well, I'd better get going, as my friend is waiting for me after all. But don't let my absence stop you from perusing this week's gallery. As you can see, I'm not the only one who's been doing something competitive and/or fun this week. But now, I must get back to our friendly game!

The score is still Q to 12, right?

Week 271 Wrap Up

Zounds! Thou hast cometh! Alas and alack, thine presence warms the very cockles of my heart! Forsooth, that time is verily upon us! Hmm. 'Verily upon us'... is that correct?

Bah, enough of that. Ye Olde Canterlot Speak is almost as hard as emulating Zecora, and I don't think any fantasy gamers actually speak that way anyways. Or at least, not any more. So yeah, enough of that.

Fantasy has been the name of the game this week, and the gaming ponies are out in force! So set aside your multi-sided dice and foam-covered swords, and take a gander at our fantasy-themed gallery! Perhaps you'll find some inspiration for your next game.

Forget roleplaying, how about an entire roleplaying game? This was supposed to be part of a larger comic but this ended up looking so good, I decided to export it standalone, title and all, and now I'll use this at the ATG submission instead. And yes, this is what I look like in Runescape right now.

Ruler of all that he can see, at least between the dunes and sea. - fetchbeer

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*

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.
