During this wonderful time of running this group I've come to find that what makes it so lovely is the members, I honestly think that I've seen some of the nicest dA users in this group, including our lovely moderating team I must mention, who keep everything running smoothly (Click the About Us page to see who they are).
Why that day?
It's my birthday :iconpinkieisexcitedplz:

Desktop PoniesAs some of you may know, there's an adorable little program called 'Desktop Ponies' which gives you the ability to have ponies running all over your screen on your computer....Some even make sounds and interact with other ponies! You can even add your OCs to it as well! I've already added one of my OCs and it's so awesome seeing him interact and follow around the other ponies.
EDIT (5/11):: The site is back up and running! Download Desktop Ponies here: http://www.desktopponies.com/
EDIT (5/12):: I zipped my program files and uploaded them to Sendspace....so maybe you can try to see if these work for you until the other site gets back in working order. http://www.sendspace.com/file/m2jfic
I added Chrysalis and some voices for her, Fancy Pants, Rarity, Mrs. Cake, Fleur, Braeburn and more!
(You need to click on the Twilight Sparkle icon for the application to start. Let me know if this works for you!)
Here's a video of my Desktop with a few ponies on it...There are tons to c
Petition Hasbro to Make Show-Accurate Plushes!Hello Bronies and plush-lovers alike! Today is a special day because we are launching a petition for Hasbro to create show-accurate plushies for all of us out there who can't afford a $400 plush. While we love custom plush makers here on deviantArt, most of us would die to have a beautiful plush doll lovingly crafted to look like our favorite characters. Unfortunately, the majority of us cannot afford to dole out hundreds of dollars for show-accurate plush doll. That is why we've started a petition asking Hasbro to make more show-accurate plushes for all the fans of MLP. If you agree, sign the petition! We hope to reach Hasbro in a way that only the fans of the incredibly popular My Little Pony could.
All it takes is your First Name, Last Name, Email, and basic Address information. All your information is kept private unless you state you'd like your signature to be shown publicly. You are automatically signed up when you sign the petition, but you may delete your account at any
Crossover Contest 1: MLP:FiM vs Marvel CharactersThis is the first of the crossover competitions that were promised earlier.
What you have to do is make a pony version of any Marvel character you wish. Be sure that it's a Marvel character and not a character from another comic series though.
If you need an example of Marvel characters the most well known ones are the X-Men. Aside from them I can only suggest is this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Marvel_Comics_characters
Click a letter to show the list for that letter. No shortage of options here!
As usual the artist favourite image will be awarded a 3 month premium membership, this one is for 2 weeks however as I don't think 1 week is really enough.
Submit to the Marvel vs My Little Pony subfolder of the Contests folder.
Deadline is the 26th of October at 5pm.
1 week isn't really enough for this one.
Good luck and try your best.
Edit: Drawing multiple characters is fine but the limit of 3 submissions per week still applies. Please only draw characters from Marvel for this
Winner of Baby Invasion + New Cosplay ContestWinner of Baby Invasion
The winner is asluc96 with this genius idea.
Seems he took the contest title rather literally.
Well done, asluc96 you will now receive a 3 month premium membership.
Perhaps one of the less appreciated forms of fandom art I think it's time we had one of these. The rules are simple. Dress as your favourite my little pony character and submit to the Fun Cosplay subfolder of the weekly contests folder.
Edit: Deadline extended to 8th of October at 5pm UK time and the winner will be decided shortly after.
Contest: Design a Pony [CLOSED]Hello everypony! As I say in the last journal in will be my first contest. It'll be a simply one. All you need to have is your own imagination and sense of style. I make 2 bases to make it even simpler for you.
What you need to do?
1. You need to design an OC Pony. Her or his mane/tail/coat/eye color and choose name.
2. You could also design cutie mark and outfit but it isn't necessary.
3. There isn't any special theme. It could be sad pony/vampire pony/member of applejack family etc. Whatever you want.
4. You can use one of my bases (http://erisgrim.deviantart.com/art/Base-2-312949195?q=in%3Ascraps%20sort%3Atime%20gallery%3Aerisgrim&qo=0 or http://erisgrim.deviantart.com/art/Base-1-312949177?q=in%3Ascraps%20sort%3Atime%20gallery%3Aerisgrim&qo=1)
5. Or you could make it by your own, but I'm not looking at your style or skills but at your design and idea.
- It should be a new work.
- UPDATE! OC should be also a new one. You ca
MLP Contest! Ending September 30th!What to Draw?
Themes to choose from:
1. Disney / Pixar movies have been a major part of our lives. No matter how old we get, we still love Disney. So, I would like for you to incorporate a Disney / Pixar theme from your favorite Disney movie into this contest. It can be a recent movie, or an older one, just as long as it is Disney / Pixar themed.
2. I am a freak for wolves. They are an extraordinary creature. Another theme option is to incorporate wolves within your entry.
3. Basic MLP themes. Canon characters, background characters, anything MLP related. This is here to give you the option you don't have to incorporate wolves or Disney themes and just want to focus on Navy Canvas's talent or Navy Canvas with your OC.
I give you theme options for creativity freedom. You can choose one theme or you can relate all three together.
Other visuals done for Navy Canvas: http://melodyofthewolf.deviantart.com/favourites/50978541

And the winners are...
In the Judge's Section:
Chosen by :iconmistytang::iconzimeta::iconshoomlah:
Give me your voice by Khioora
What the judges were saying: "Khioora's piece definitely jumped out at me when I was first browsing through the entries- it's a striking illustration, granted, but I was also taken with the integration of both 1830's fashion, and Romantic period portrayals of mermaids with more delineated legs. I'm not a huge fan of fashion in the 1830's, but I'll be the first to admit that it's a blast to draw; I think Khioora did a great job of capturing the so-called "Waist and Extravagance" of the period with both her characters' overall silhouette, and her general detailing of the costume. Great stuff!"~ shoomlah
Design me a new dog character contest ($40 prize)Hey all! I have very few characters and I'm looking for more, so I thought I would run a little contest to see if I could rustle up a few creative designs from people! I'm not looking for anything super specific but I do have a couple of general guidelines.
-Must be a new design, on original lines.
-The ref must contain a full body shot and a headshot at minimum; if design is non-symmetrical, you need to showcase both sides.
-There will be one first prize of $40.
-If I like more than one design, I may award a second and/or third prize OR I might just buy the character outright from the designer.
-Designs that don't win are fully resellable.
-I reserve the right to end this contest with no winner if I don't particularly fancy any of the designs offered.
-If you need an extension, feel free to ask; I'll most likely say yes!
-Ends on June 25th as of right now.
BREEDS I LIKE
-Irish Water Spaniel (!)

EDIT: When submitting entries to the contest, please specify in the title of the deviation that they're for this contest, or in the description.

So I want you folks to take your favourite song or a song you find inspiring, and turn it into a scene featuring one (or more) of my oc's with one (or more) of your oc's. It doesn't have to be a literal 'translation' of the song, so to say, the song doesn't even have to have lyrics. Just draw whatever the song inspires you to create. You will be judged on creativity :3
The characters to choose from are :

The characters don't have to be drawn as ponies. If you'd prefer to draw them in another style, (anthro,
