I'm retarded. Give me a quick rundown on how snowmares single handedly caused this peak
>>37522197because snowmares cute and fluffy so /mlp/ collectively lost their goddamn minds.
>>37522197fresh injection of cute new contentI think we should probably let it sit and bake for a bit after this thread, though, it's really slowed down a lot.
i drew a snowmare and her filly!
>>37522296also this. i call her winter coatnote: she is a full grown mare
>>37522197People raiding the site and rewatch circlejerkers.
>>37522296would go kayaking with/10
>>37522296>>37522300checked and cute!
>>37522148I have a need for more of this pone and her cones that could also be called snow cones because that's where you're gonna find a pine
Made another one>>37521971To be honest, I was surprised that my original evergreen was replaced by your design. I was kinda confused but I went with it anyway, atleast someone is drawing and that's good a thing
I'm trying to make an ambient snowpony song. What sounds do you associate with snowponies?
>>37522372Please don't make a Christmas-sounding music just because snow theme.My gut feeling would be throat singing, but that's Mongolian stuff - I have no fucking clue what Eskimo music sound like.Probably something both windy and muffled.
>>37522389>what Eskimo music sound likehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Q005ElC2EwIt sound like shit, I suggest taking inspiration from something else.
>>37522216ThisWe should let it slow down now, let’s not burn it out.
>>37522389>>37522396Make it crunchy like snow/ice and muted af like empty, windy plains. Bonus points for shitty dawood snowstorm names.
Anyway, Here's fortunate son
>>37521760Chart anon please stop changing things without reading the thread. If you’re going to be autistic, commit to being fully autistic. There is no Lunda, the Puffins thing was already settled, they’re all pictures of the same pony with occasionally different details. >>37515050
>>37522371She's part of the anti-boot club
>>37522752But boot is comfy.
>>37522763Boot is also tasty. Clogs and moccasins too, depending on who you ask.
The BOOT!also I need help on adding effects
>>37522900there's always the standard shine effectjust pop it on a layer underneath that image centered on where you want it coming from.
requesting more wholesome snowponies with puffinspretty please!
>>37522296This image is wonderful and I wrote you a song for it. I'd like to think kayaking under the half moon is nice up north. When the windigoes aren't out the bay turns to a black glass with white chunks of floating out a stark contrast, almost glowing with reflected light, the chiaroscuro effect mirroring the dark and light of the moon overhead. Filly sleeps under her hooves, relaxed by the gentle rocking and rhythmic splash of the paddles, and snowmare hums her a little kayaking tune as they go.https://u.smutty.horse/mdcqhbzzdzv.mp3
>>37522900>also I need help on adding effectsChannel your inner graphic design major.Disclaimer: I never went to art school. Also, why only 500x500?
>inb4 600 replies
Badumsquish made a snowpone now
>>37523001This is a good reaction. How did I miss this?
>>37523001>>37523095I kinda wish the bait part was more visible desu
>>37523055SING HYMNS TO BOOT
>>37523085that's what you thinkit's probably some weird-ass yeti pony or will sprout wendigo bits or something knowing his track record.
>>37523055Does it need to be bigger?
>>37523085This snowmare looks twice as fluffy as the others.
>>37523236It’s just nice to have bigger images if possible.
>>37523238Post hibernation fluff. Snowponies can hibernate? yesThey actually need it? noWhy this mare do it? She like to sleep
Happy 10th thread!
>>37522296This is so adorable!
>>37522296she’s so TINY I love her
>>37523085What's her name, anons?
rough design of a snowpony design once I'm able to I'll finish her up> Viking influence> Nordic Icelandic accent> pillages> plunders> glomps
>>37522296What's with you and delivering the prettiest, smallest babies?Absolutely based btw.
I'll repost the thing since it was after the bump limit.
>>37522371I dunno why, sorry, nonny
Some snowmares just chilling.
>>37523657>>37523693>>37523717So many fluffy QTs!
>>37522513Right, I was tired when I made the edit and confused someone not knowing that they were the same mare with that they should be separate mares. I'll revert it back on the next update.
>>37523717Is Pine Ponder giving that look because nobody brought her a fish, or because a filly caught a bigger fish than a grown mare?
>>37523765probably because the fish is on fire
>>37522372I'd suggest listing to some traditional Sámi music. You could also take inspiration from inuit music but a lot of it is very throaty throat singing.And of course, traditional Nordic or Scottish music may lead to inspiration as well. Hell you even could take some inspiration from Christmas songs as long as you don't lean too heavily on them.
>>37523775She's a raw fish purist, meaning you're a radical snowmare if you cook your fish.
>>37522372Some kind of georgian dance.And yes, I mean the country.
>>37523765Frosty might have overcooked the fish just a bit.
Requesting a continuation of this green: >The crystal guard jumped at a sharp knock on the gate.>A visitor?>At the front gate?>But visitors always arrive by rail!>Traveling to the empire by hoof was dangerous at the best of times.>That he was even stationed here was mostly a formality, a holdover from their ancient fear of the evil King Sombra.>He cautiously slid the viewing port open and saw a... mare?>Just an ordinary greyish-tan earth pony standing casually in the hoof-deep snow, her mane buffeted by the punishing winds beyond the barrier.>The guard had to resist the urge to gawk.>How was she even still alive!?>Trying not to let his ears fold back, he nonetheless couldn't prevent the fear and confusion from creeping into his voice.>"W-Who goes there? State your business!">She smiled and raised a friendly hoof toward what little she could see of his face."Hello! I am called Frosty Flakes of the Eskimare. I am come on behalf of Chieftain Baba. Will you allow my entry to express greetings to your leaders from my people?">By the Sun and Moon, the mare wasn't even shivering!>"What... ARE you?">The words were out of his snout before he could stop himself.>She tilted her head with an inquisitive look."Um, I am a pony? As I said, of the Eskimare snowpony tribe. Do you have difficulty seeing me? Is this improved?">She stepped a bit closer and turned sideways with a hopeful smile.>There was a simple satchel draped across her withers and a simple sash in her mane, but she wore nothing else.>No protective gear.>No winterized boots.>Not even a bucking scarf.>Deeply unnerved, the guard mumbled something unintelligible and promptly galloped away to find his superior officer.>Some time passed and poor Frosty Flakes was starting to get a little bored and more than a little worried.>Had she made some mistake of etiquette?>Or were the old teaching ballads mistaken?>Maybe the gemponies were not as welcoming as they had believed.>She had been so looking forward to reconnecting with their ancient allies, too.>But eventually the news made its way up the chain of command, was confirmed not to be a poorly conceived joke, and an official decision was made.>Shining Armor himself led a squad of guard ponies to escort her to the Princess.>They hoped the mare would consider it a sign of respect, but truth be told Shining was more concerned with the threat of trickery than honoring this mysterious ambassador. >So when two guards swung the heavy metal bar up and the big doors slowly creaked open, it was really no wonder Shining reacted the way he did.>The moment the doors opened, Frosty let out a delighted squee and trotted forward, raising a hoof to give the former captain a hug of greeting.>There was a flash of purple light and next thing she knew she was lying on the ground with a half dozen spears pointed at her muzzle.
>>37524047>They put me on the list!Oh fugg, I gotta name the Snowpitt Tea exporter mare now!First Idea is Austra because she travels south.
>>37524047For pony number H6, I’m putting forth the name of Winter Voice, Cold Voice, or Ice Peak.
>>37524047>My shit drawing got included at 1KDamn it now I have to learn how to draw or something so I can make her look better. Curse you fellow snowbros.
>>37523862That's not friendship.No fishes for the crystal ponies.
>>37522372I say go listen to some Danheim songs and youll get an idea. Also I own a Jouhikko if you need help getting those obscure norse-folk sounds :)
>>37523717I love them so much, bros. Their antics and shenanigans make me happy.
>>37523693Bununny pone a cute!
Do the snow ponies speak standard Equestrian English or some weird Slavic/Eskimo dialect
>>37524207> some weird Slavic/Eskimo dialectEto.
>>37523526She's cute.>>37524162They really are something else. So endearing.>>37522216>I think we should probably let it sit and bake for a bit after this thread, though, it's really slowed down a lot.Sadly you do have a point.
>>37524234I don't mind the slowdown too much, it's giving me time at least to catch up .
>>37524252The hype was nice while it lasted, I only worry about missing threads when they stop being continual.I don't like checking the catalogue much anymore.
>>37524261It doesn't take very long to open the catalog every day or two and Shift+Click everything you don't care about. Unless you delete cookies or simply seeing bad threads is enough to give you anguish.
>>3752221610 threads is perfect. We all had a great time.
>>37524274>or simply seeing bad threads is enough to give you anguish.Well, since you did type it...Not quite that bad but it does depress me a little. Snowpones are worth it.
>>37524261If you're on a desktop/laptop, get 4chanx for better filtering options and other goodness. If you're on mobile, get something like Blueclover for simillar functionality.
>>37524299Once they're hidden you'll likely forget about them and what they were, or you can just use filters like a fag.
>>37523017i love this!! it's so atmospheric and captures the beautiful scene you described perfectly. all the snowpone music you've made is amazing tbdesu>>37523646i love cute bebbies
Fixed mane for Evergreen
>>37524373Thank you beautiful friend.I kinda love her frizzy Jew hair, desu senpai hentai.
>>37523017Dammit stop giving me more ideas. Love it as always. Today have a Boreal Blanket the fashionable Snowpone.
>>37524425wtf, I did not notice the shit around her. There they are gone now.
>>37524431>>37524425I am retard, i really need to sleep.
>>37524070Austra isn't bad, but I think it should lean more on her tavelling. I would suggest 'Long Haul' but that's kinda masculine.>>37524105Ice Peak would probably work best out of those three.
>>37524070Strong Brew, Butter Salt, Warming Draught yes it's exact same word with exact same pronunciation as "draft" but that tends to be used for flowing air, not drinks. Though that can be punned about.
>>37522296Thanks anon Very cute
The art these past two days has been fantastic. Thanks all of you.
>>37524433I love her outfit, she has an interesting expression too. Perhaps a little haughty?
>>37524366Thanks! Admission: I stole the lullaby melody from a different song with minor changes to make it a little northern and watery, but since nobody listened to the other one anyway I think I’m safe to steal from myself this time.
>>37524522>tfw off topic posts on my american throat singing forum
>>37522137>Winter themed thread>SnowponiesFinally.Let me introduce you to the beauty of modern northern music:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qW6I1lK72lshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYav7Dco9Jkhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-XTPe8y0s0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETxhZFDN1pUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUhmjmkLnxYhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ttqnz-xnwWMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1BUp21VDSU
>>37524624I love German language, nice stuff anon. Icelandic is still prettier though and fits more:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqKqcjP-g2s
>>37524642just imagine a snowpone mother singing this lullaby to her foal as she cradles it by a waterfallhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSKNIGwp7Jk
Can the snowpone walk in the air, anons?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HoqJH5FGRA
>>37524701If any snowpone could, I'd imagine it would be Cirrus
>>37524701Ignoring the pretty music, I posit this exceptionally difficult feat is mastered by Shadmares and specially trained tribesponies in their younger years, though few can maintain into old age. As we know, snow ponies manifest the magical ability of snowwalking like Pegasi and clouds or Legolas and…also snow. Effectively this means that while on snow they exert no downward force, or rather, the snow exerts exactly their weight worth of upward force. With focus and some mystic shenanigans, an athletic shamare can step from falling snowflake to falling snowflake, climbing them into the sky as long as it’s snowing hard enough to provide sufficient flakes to reach from one to the next. Although this trick takes considerable effort and can’t really be maintained for travel, it’s a nice gimmick and can probably get you to the top of a small cliff or tall tree in a real pinch.
>>37524879I now remember pegasi are able to walk on fog.
>>37524471>Warming Draught BASED Warming Draught brought the new REFRESHING blends FRESH from Snowpitt!>>37524452Long Haul is reserved as a ponified name for Ron Paul unfortunately, but it's cool af.
>>37522296so im thinking Still Lake for the moms name, any ideas for the little one?
>>37522296>White Water>Paddle Nap>Birch Bark>Steady Current>Ice Flow
>>37525123i was about to recommend Water Break but then i realized how poor of a name choice that would be
>>37525204Oh I like this. Seconding.
>>37525204i like this one too, River Bed it is. thanks guys!
>>37524656>tfw no snowpone mom to sing you to sleep.
>>37525483Gonna make it friend; she’s waiting for you in Equestria.
/r/equesting any bored drawfag to draw the snow kids from galactik football as snow pones
>>37525555>tfw I now remember how in Russian dub of one episode one of background chatter line was "She has big boobs" and the sound mixing guy has put it in front so it's loud and clearGood times
>>37525555>quadschecked>>37525566>dub dubsdouble checked
>>37525555Holy shit those quads, I'll take a try at it later tonight
I'm genuinely surprised at how little lewd art there is of snowpones.
Has it really been 2 weeks already? What the fuck happened?
>>37525839Our fluffy daughterus are pure.
>>37522900are there any specific effects you wanted?
>>37526035Not him, but please add some explosions
>>37526040I can’t do art, sorry. I was just asking in general because the request is vague.
when will the snowponies meet the snowchangelings
>>37526357> snow unicornWhen and where does this come from?
>>37526357changlings need to be purged
>>37526035Anything my dude. There's no wrong way to fantasize
>>37524433Barring simply enjoying the look, do snowponies living in the more southern parts of their lands tend to wear more clothes because they're used to the slightly warmer temperatures, or are some snowponies just cold natured?
>>37507450 Looks like the snowpones found something.
>>37526486He failed step 2
>Oh boy, my to-do list is mathematically impossible to complete in the next month! Is it time to crunch now?>Hahahaha, no, go spend an hour and a half making a crappy Still Lake and Water bed! In October when I sleep for two hours a night I’ll look back on this moment.>>37522296Anyway they’re super cute and a good motivator, but I don’t want them. If you send some sort of proof that you’re the artist to woodchipchiselsATgmailDOTcom I’ll mail you this garbage. Otherwise I’ll just have to give them away later.
>>37526486Beautiful and pleasant. I dream of this.
>>37525555Based quads for a based show
>>37526486I CANT FUCKING TAKE THIS SHIT ANYMORE. THEY ARE SO GOD DAMN LOVEABLE AND I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO SCRITCH THEIR EARS. IM GONNA AN HERO I SWEAR TO GOD

>>37526486>The one little filly tripping onto her faceGod damn this is all so adorable.
>>37526486I love seeing the running themes with each of the characters.

More offsite art
>>37526849How the fuck was I able to post it then...?I thought 4chan had duplicate prevention
>>37526877Because twitter drags images through a slurry of shit and piss before posting them and the dupe check doesn't recognize them afterwards.
>>37526561You and me both, friend. I've put snowpone eyes on hold to try to finish a baby blanket but she just keeps lookin' at me without grump and I feel guilty. October's gonna have its way with me, I can tell.
>>37526809>>37526877Helps if ya recognize that artist from the deliveries they've done in the drawthread. If you find it on their twitter, decent chance it was here first.
>>37526561Are they on their way to visit DeWalt pony?
>>37526731Shit, my bad. Nothing goes on between these ears.>>37526993Feelin guilty because your pony isn’t grump. There is no win condition.
>>37527024DeWalt pony is very good. I’m sure that they would get along.
>>37527056DeWalt pony got an absolute dump truck
>>37527183Built for heavy use.
>>37526486I smell next OP pic
Hay guys, can my OC’s join in?
>>37527336What's their name? Avalanche?
>>37527336Looks like a NEET snowmare that neglected to properly manage the shedding of her winter coat for a few years.
>>37527336>killed the yaks>all of them>every single one>took their pelts as a trophy>going to take actual, literal years to get the smell out of them>also holy mackerel is it heavy>had to ask ryu from street fighter to help bring the all yak pelts back>genocide is very tiringAnd that, young ones, is how our great great great great great great great grandpatriarch purified the tundra and brought peace to our lands.
>>37527349She is actually very fat and the pony mushing her is Viscous Viper.Because he’s Solid snake. You nerd.
>>37527336Why does horse god allow fatfags to continue breathing?
>>37527336did you make this or get it from somewhere
>>37527413Of course I made this, I’m literally Warbler. Or Vireo if you know me just for the fats.
>>37527336Wow is that the real Yellow-Throated Warbler, acclaimed fat artist and chub extraordinaire?
>>37527336I know what you're going for, but it gives me these vibes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzSNM_umqqo
>>37520176My Winter Storm - https://ponepaste.org/5713>You set her back down into the sled, and prepared to keep moving.>You weren't lying, you were on a schedule.>Not a super-strict-twilight-esque schedule, but one just the same.>Laska seemed to feel much better after your little talk, opting to walk along side the sled instead of riding.>She would even occasionally stop to pick herbs along the forest trail.>"Look Anon! more red amantias!" >You roll your eyes as she rushes over to pick the red and white speckled mushrooms with her mouth, tossing them into her saddle bags.>"A key ingredient in the production of restorative potions and salves, though it doesn't grow naturally in Equestria. They have to grow it in green houses. I thought we'd find some, but I didn't think there would be so much!">You shrug."Yea... not many ponies picking in these parts, so everything is plentiful.">For the longest time you never thought she would get a cutie mark in herbalism of all things.>You're not sure why you felt that way, she was adopted by the royal apothecary after all.>With all the time she spent enjoying the gardens, her love of plants should be no surprise.>Fate and cutie marks have a strange relationship.>You laugh to yourself as she bounces between patches that have yet to be buried in snow, filling her bags to the brim.>Sometimes she falls a little bit behind, but you walk at a pace that allows her the chance to catch up.>Will she even get a chance to use all of these?>Probably not.>Using your hand to shield your eyes, you check the sky for the position of the sun.>Almost directly overhead.>"Oof!">You look over as Laska trips over her mane while trying to pick more herbs.>You chide her in amusement"When are you going to cut that mane? It must be hitting your knees by now.">"Never.">She pokes her tongue out at you, and you stick yours out right back."Watch out with that whole 'Dork' thing - I'll just beat you with experience.">She pokes her tongue again, and picks another herb from the patch.>You roll your eyes and put your attention back on the trail.>This is perfect, as long as you keep this pace you should arrive early.>As you climb further into the hills, the tree cover becomes thicker.>Combine that with the gradually setting sun, and the world begins to become much darker.>And the cold starts to settle in.
>>37527670>And then you hear it - the faint howl of a wolf in the distance.>Laska hears it too, and she shrieks as the sound sends chills up her spine.>"W-what was that?">She rushes to your side, holding onto your leg.>You didn't want to answer, because you know exactly what it was."Frost Wolves.">Laska looks up at you, concern dominating her features.>"F-frost wolves? There are wolves here?">You nod.>Another howl echos in the distance.>And its noticeably louder.>Closer...>Shit.>Without thinking, you pick up Laska with one arm, and walk over to the crate she had been hiding in earlier.>You pop open the lid and gently place her inside.>"Anon, I'm scared.""Good. You should be. It means you have a good head on your shoulders.">You scan the woods for signs of life, but see none.>You still have time."Laska, listen to me very carefully.">You cup one of her cheeks in your palm, making sure you have her full attention before continuing."If something happens to me, You need to stay in this crate as long as you can, alright?">She doesn't respond, and you continue anyway."As long as you have food and water. If you run out, you need to take the sled back to the train station, alright? There should be enough supplies in the crates for you to wait for the next train.">She starts trembling.>"B-but, w-hat...""Promise me you can do that, ok?">She hesitates, then nods, her eyes glistening with tears.>"Please don't leave me.">You half smile"I don't plan on it. That's just the plan B, ok?">She sobs.>You gently close the lid, making sure the lid is reasonably snug, but still able to be opened from the inside.>You fish your key back out of your pocket, opening the valuables chest at the back of the sled.>Grabbing the sash of vials, the chain mail hauberk, and the iron helm, you trudge back up to the front of the sled.>You briefly remove your parka to work your way into the chain mail.>It's extremely uncomfortable without a gambeson, but your options are limited by time.>You put your parka back on over top, and tie the sash with vials across your chest.>The last resort.>You place the helm on your head.>Heavy and cold.>You begin pulling the sled forward with one hand, your other hand resting on the grip of your sword as you move the sled forward along the frozen path.>The going is much slower than the leisurely pace you had taken before.>The air is getting colder.>Unnaturally frigid.>They're getting close.>Actually, you hope its not more than one>You grab a flint and steel, lighting one of the many torches you had packed with the supplies, holding it in the same hand that you held onto the sled rope.>Your eyes scan the darkening forest, scanning for hints of what you know is coming.>You wait for the signal...
>>37527677>There!>The brief glint of frost brushes across your face.>Now!>You draw your sword with an almost unnatural haste.>But instead of drawing the blade out, you strike forward with the pommel.>You grunt with the effort of the attack, and you strike solid.>The gust of frosty air whips around you.>You couldn't even see what you struck, but you check the pommel of your sword.>It's covered in a viscous blue substance.>You know what it is - Blood of a Frost Wolf.>Dropping the rope of the sled, you chuckle to the woods, stepping out ahead on the path with torch in one hand, sword in the other."It must be your first time, feeling your own blood spilled.">You taunt the woods through gritted teeth.>The adrenaline is already ramping up.>It's about to be a fight for your life."Are you truly that weak, COME ON!!">You shout, the last syllable echoing through the snow capped peaks."SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT!">Careful, don't let yourself get carried away.>Watch for the eyes, the blue orbs.>They are practically invisible when moving through the snow.>It's what makes them so dangerous.>The only thing you can see are the eyes.>Like a pair of floating lapis lazuli.>Watch, wait, react...>There!>You see them coming, but its too late.>The jaws of a massive white wolf lunge at you with, teeth glistening with anticipation.>It's as if they came out of the snow itself.>You don't have nearly enough time to move, and the jaw clamps down on your sword arm.>It hurts like hell, but the sleeve of the chain mail absorbs the brunt of the bite.>You swing with the torch at the head of the creature, but it releases its grip and retreats back to the cover of the snow before you can strike it.>In a wisp of snow-laden air, the wolf is already gone, back into the embrace of the snow.>You grunt in pain, keeping your eyes peeled on your surroundings, waiting for the next attack.>They fear the flame because they are vulnerable to it.>Thank god you spent enough time reading about this shit in the Canterlot Archives.>You don't think you're bleeding, but that is for sure gonna leave a nice big bite-shaped bruise.>You're not sure how more of those you can take.>You feel a rush of air from behind.>You turn to face it, swinging your sword in a wide chopping motion underneath your other arm, hoping to catch something.>The wolf was going for a body shot, but missed you entirely.>Of course that also meant that you missed it as well."Ha... you're losing your touch...">You taunt the whiteness again, swinging your torch."I'll have you know you're not the first frost wolf I've killed. You won't be the last either.">You swing your sword haphazardly to your side."I think your pelt will make a nice cape.">It really would, actually...>You catch the eyes again, and you're ready for it this time!"Yes!">You prepare a jab at the incoming orbs, but they retreat before even attempting another attack.>You feel a set of jaws instead clamp onto your leg.
>>37527683>Seeing as your legs are currently unarmored, the teeth easily break the the skin, sinking into the flesh below.>You yelp in pain, instinctively swinging the torch at the offender.>It retreats before being struck, and another set of jaws bites onto the arm holding the torch.>Oh, fuck!>There's more than one!>This one grips onto you tightly, attempting to pull you down.>Another one bursts from its snowy cover, colliding into your side and knocking you down into the snow.>The snow does little to brace your fall, and you land painfully on your chest, scraping yourself in too many places to keep track of.>Before you can roll over, a wolf is already on your back, snapping at your neck.>You can barely move under its weight, but thankfully your helmet covers your neck well enough to keep the wolf from tearing it out.>Another wolf grabs onto your left arm, shaking its head in an attempt to tear the flesh.>Another bits into your thigh, doing the same.>And another.>And another.>You yelp in pain as the wolves tear at you.>This is it.>This is where you die.>After all these years tracking across Equestria and back, this is how its going to be.>Eaten alive and torn to shreds by frost wolves.>But then there's Laska...>Laska...>NO>You can't die!>You grunt with all your might, and you manage to work your right arm to the sash of vials.>Luckily for you, you had landed on your arm and the wolves hadn't managed to grab it yet.>You grab a specific vial based purely on muscle memory, and place it in front of your face.>With as much force as you can muster, you bring down the bridge of your helmet onto the flask, shattering it.>In an instant, your vision is filled with flames.>The wolves immediately stop trying to tear you apart, screaming through the forest in a ball of flame while howling their death throes.>You squint your eyes and begin rolling through the snow.>Stop, drop, and roll.>You roll yourself through the snow extinguishing the flames as quickly as you can.>After you're certain you're no longer on fire, you lay on your back, looking up into the almost dark sky as the stars begin to twinkle.>Holy fuck.>Everything hurts.>You manage to crane your neck to the left to see a circle where there was previously snow, still licked with flames and the foliage underneath now burned.>You smirk to yourself.>Gottem, fucking bastards.>You breath in short breaths, attempting to lift yourself up on your still good arm.>And the world goes dark.

Continuing from >>37490819>Eighth of October, 27th day of the Anon Northern Expedition>Dear Paper Chase,>I apologise in advance for the length of this letter but I’m afraid there’s simply too much for me to document and relate.>Our meal with the snowponies yesterday was a simple enough affair.>The folding tables we use for the cooking equipment aren’t large enough to accommodate all of us so we joined them in being seated together.>I’m sure you remember our earlier days at the University where myself and my comrades would sit together, apart from ponies, until we ‘warmed up to you’, as you put it. I must confess that the feeling returned yesterday when the prospect of being seated among strange equines reared its head again.>But we had neither the luxury of a spacious cafeteria, nor the leeway to believe we wouldn’t cause undue offence to our hosts.>Instead, we made do with sitting together, assuming that the snowponies would seat themselves opposite us. Why wouldn’t we? Our relations haven’t been strained or otherwise fragile but they had no reason to stay so close to us.>I’m sure you can imagine the surprise that spread amongst us when many sat right against ourselves and a few even pushed their way between us.>Our linguist was astounded—and more than a little amused—to discover that Warm Embrace had related the previous night’s lack of huddling on our part to the rest of the group. Apparently, in spite of repeated assurances that our coats and other clothing were sufficient to keep us warm, they still worried both for our safety and for... something we’re still trying to translate.>I’ve tried to capture the scene as I recall it in the sketch. You see Baba Hooves sitting almost next to Anon? I’m glad Warm Embrace is between them and I’m sure he felt the same. It still unnerves me to recall how she chewed at the hardtack with a smile on her face.>Our cartographer and the mare he was arguing with shared a darne of the fish—Anon, our cook, says it’s something like grayling—which I hope indicates they’ve made amends over the earlier argument. With the language barrier it’s impossible to tell but she seemed settled enough.>Please excuse the odd perspective, I’ve tried to mentally place myself opposite of where I sat. Our doctor is firmly wedged between myself and our cook, no doubt to avoid getting close to any of the snowponies for fear of what might happen. He hasn’t said if that’s the reason but I think it’s a safe assumption, at this point.>At the least, he didn’t recoil too severely when one of the older mares—who through Warm Embrace, graciously shared that her name is ‘True North’—brought him what looked like a particularly fat darne of the fish. An attempt to assure him they mean him no further harm and possibly some measure of restitution?
>>37531984>Note also the seals gathered alongside the snowponies. We haven’t received much of an explanation beyond them being ‘friends’ and what our linguist has translated as, ‘<partners/compatriots> in our endeavour’.>The foals in particular were quite fond of petting the seals as they offered some of the smaller fish that could be spared.>As for myself, you can see the cream and grey mare who previously brought the basket to our doctor, sat herself by my side. I believe, owing to her cutie mark as well, that she’s one of the fishers who brought in this generous haul.>So, I tried to make clear to her that the fish was most appreciated and tasteful. It certainly helps that our cook was able to put the small gas-burning stoves and pans to use in cooking them first.>I’ve included a sketch of that, also, as I believe you’ll enjoy seeing the reactions of the snowponies to seeing us use that modern equipment.>You can see the bay mare in particular was keenly investigating the gas stoves. First she started launching a tirade of questions to our cook before realising she was wasting her time and fetched Warm Embrace.>I’m sure you can imagine the difficulty of translating under those circumstances but she was intensely interested in the heat output of the stoves, their adjustability, and the fuel.>Why? And why her? I’m afraid we haven’t been able to adequately translate that, at least yet. All we have is her name: Bright Earth.>Whatever the case, the meal proceeded without any unfortunate incidents. We may not have been able to talk with our hosts but their company, never mind their food, was more than welcome.>From speaking with Anon afterwards, he was engaged in some discussion with Warm Embrace and Baba Hooves during it.>And I confess I still feel a certain rush of excitement just thinking about it but we were to be brought to their village, to properly rest and more patiently discuss who we are and why we’re here.>I’m sure you must be mentally composing your letter to me, chiding me about the importance of ‘maintaining a proper sense of professional detachment and objectivity in your observations’. But Paper, if you’d seen what we have, been treated as we have, you’d be struggling just as much as I am.>I’m going to split this correspondence as I still have much to relate and must break momentarily.>Your friend, soundly subjective,>Anonymous>Eighth of October, 27th day of the Anon Northern Expedition>Dear Paper Chase,>I think you’re going to like this one in particular.>While I wasn’t privy to the exact details of the discussion between Anon and Baba Hooves, I have learned of one important detail from our linguist-turned-interpreter: we’re now under their care.>Or rather, we’re honour-bound to each other.>I’m afraid I don’t recall reading such instances in my studies of Equestrian hippology but certainly back on Earth, such beliefs aren’t or weren’t uncommon among certain types of societies.
>>37531987>You see, having shared food with one another, the snowponies are bound by tradition to allow no harm to come to us just as we in turn are not to harm them.>While Anon was still understandably a bit reluctant to place his full trust in them, he agreed to their request for us to accompany them to their village. Personally, I didn’t see what further risk we’d be taking by doing so. If they wanted to capture or otherwise harm us, they’ve had more than ample opportunity to do so. And with the village so close that we could reach it within the day, even at our comparatively slower pace, then there’s no way we’d be able to outrun any search parties from it.>But he’s our leader and ultimately the safety of our group is his responsibility. Which is why he turned down a most generous offer by our hosts that I’ll get to in due course.>Recall from my earlier sketch the treeline close by to where the fishing party had set up. It’s within that forest that we found the village and make no mistake, it is a large enough settlement to be called so.>I think, having seen where we were to be led, I understood Anon’s concern.>Again, our gracious hosts offered to pull our laden sleds but this time along with their own and their travoises, now themselves laden with their haul from the fishing expedition.>The foals of the group circled about our sleds, chattering to each other excitedly before taking off into the forest.>Strange to say but while most of them showed the same lack of difficulty with the snow as Snow Glide, at least one of them periodically sank into the drifts. To their credit, the rest of the foals would slow down and help dislodge her. It warms the heart to see such camaraderie among children of even this far-flung place.>As for the older mares, they easily kept pace with the rest of the group. One even bore a pair of the ‘saddlebaskets’ upon her back. From what little I’ve seen of their relations so far, I’ve little reason to believe she would’ve been burdened unduly so my assumption is that she requested the opportunity.>True North stayed near our doctor, who thankfully showed no signs of trying to avoid her in turn. I think her generosity at the meal and her general demeanour have done much to ease the tension there. It also spared him observing Warm Embrace’s continued glances back at him. He was a little more sure-footed but still lagged.>Still, Anon, our… He asked us to call him our ‘quartermaster’ and I neglected to use that term in a previous letter, owing to its ridiculousness. We’re not a military endeavour and while he may hold that background, it’s not a title that fits with our mission.>I mention this here only because I know if he, somehow, gets his mitts on these letters I’ll never hear the end of it if I don’t at least mention it.>To get back to my point, he’s been enjoying examining the travoises and sleds of the snowponies.
>>37531989>Not to talk down the quality of craftsponyship of our own sleds but considering we’re now among the natives of this land, it’d be a hard task to beat their own knowledge of constructing sleds.>How much of that is down to better weight distribution and how much to more sophisticated ergonomics, I leave to whatever report our ‘quartermaster’ may feel the need to draw up.>In any case, I’ll direct your attention to the first sketch I’ve included.>I hope you’ll forgive the roughness, that’s not down to any difficulty remembering on my part. Goodness no, I doubt I could forget stepping through the last of those trees and being greeted by that sight.>What was I expecting?>Not such sophisticated looking lodges, given what little we’ve seen of the snowponies before that but then I should’ve remembered what I said about their production of leather.>I think it’s still the shock of encountering these ponies. I know I’m not alone in standing somewhat awestruck at these sights.>From the small statuettes that adorn the pathways through the village, to the ornate carvings upon many of the doors and the logs of the structures themselves, the small decorations tied with colourful strips of cloth that hang from the eaves of their lodges, many of them look like trees or leaves though some almost look like conifer cones.>It’s a hippologist’s dream come true and I’m only sorry you’re not here to see these things for yourself.>The second sketch, I hope, provides a better view of our arrival in the village.>I have to believe it’s thanks to the foals who ran ahead that a party was waiting for us but I’m still glad that the worst I can say about the greeting is the curiosity expressed by the villagers.>An older mare stepped forward from the group to meet Baba Hooves and Warm Embrace, who continued on as Anon brought us to a halt.>The discussion was, apparently, over bringing strange creatures with ‘magic fire’ into the village and any danger they might pose. Knowing what I know now, it’s obvious the adults didn’t place too much stock in whatever the foals had told them. Children are the same wherever you go, eh?>Once the matter was cleared up—my guess, after it came to light we’d shared our meal—we were taken through the village proper.>The other mares from the fishing expedition were met by others and stallions—the first we’ve seen so far, would you believe, which I’m sure I could write entire letters about on the subject thereof—who began to unload their sleds and travoises. A handful of others remained hitched to our own and pulled them along with us.>I hope my third sketch gives some more detail to the drying racks they hang their fish upon. I’ve also included sketches of a few of the smaller buildings with copious smoke rising from them which I’d guess at being smokers. Especially if the aroma from those areas of the village is anything to go by.
>>37531991>-N.B.: collect your thoughts and recompose.>I’ll leave the last and probably most important matter to the third letter in this collection.>Your friend, assuredly among friends,>Anonymous>Eighth of October, 27th day of the Anon Northern Expedition>Dear Paper Chase,>I’ll try to be brief both as I’m sure you’ve already had a lot to take in and because our doctor’s itching for me to accompany him on urgent business.>We were led through the village, past more homes than I might otherwise have imagined from the group we initially met, interspersed with small places of industry - tanners, carpenters, etc..>The lodge we stopped at was significantly larger than the others, its carvings more ornate and the lintel above the door was the only one I’ve seen that bore engravings in the shape of stylised stars.>Though I must stress that I haven’t had the chance to more properly explore the village yet and so can’t state definitively if this lodge, that I’ve included a sketch of, is the only one to bear those marks.>Baba Hooves and the older mare who spoke with her and Warm Embrace accompanied us there and inside. I’ve tried to give some sense of its scale with the sketch of its interior but in case it’s not clear, it’s too large to be a simple dwelling. More likely it’s some kind of gathering place but for what, I can’t yet say.>Notice the extensive horseshoe motif? I haven’t noticed any of the snowponies wearing horseshoes but then I haven’t been examining them closely enough to tell, I think. That and their significant feathering leaves it quite difficult.>If I had to guess—and my position necessitates that—it could be an indicator of a connection to the earth. These snowponies live in a forest, and rather than having made a clearing they’ve built around the trees. A respect for nature? Certainly that’s the case among earth ponies but I’d still rather not start making assumptions based on that when these ponies name themselves for something else entirely.>The alcove at the corner was the only one and held a small idol. Whether it’s simply decorative or holds some religious/spiritual significance is something I don’t wish to guess at. Not until I’ve had the chance to make at least some inquiries though, with only the one linguist having so many asking for his time I’m sure you can imagine that I may yet be waiting.>The fire in the pit at the centre of the hall was already lit upon our entering and the temperature difference from outside was immediately apparent. These snowponies are clearly competent builders.>This was where the three snowponies who accompanied us inside—Warm Embrace, Baba Hooves, and the elderly mare who’d been introduced as Larch Bough—took to addressing Anon.
>>37531994>Larch formally welcomed us to her village, revealing that she is indeed its chief.>’You have shared in our <food/meal/bounty>, now you share in our <embrace/safety/care>’ was the exact translation our linguist gave. She sat back on her haunches with her forelegs extended as if beckoning him into a hug. To his credit, he declined that and whatever faux pas we may have committed in doing so is, I’m sure, less than mistakenly engaging in such physical contact unwanted.>I’d chalk Larch Bough’s reserved bearing up to that but she appeared so even before leading us to the lodge. Understand that when I say ‘reserved’, I don’t mean that she’s made us feel unwelcome here. I think, as a leader, she shares Anon’s outlook in shouldering the safety of her ponies so seriously. We’re an unknown to them as much as they are to us.>And, of course, I have to remember that as cordial as the snowponies we’ve met have been so far, that’s no reason to think none of them differ in personality or temperament.>I’ll be sure to have our linguist draw up a full and proper transcript of the discussion as I believe that only he can provide the correct insight. However there is the important matter I’ve yet to mention and I only regret now I’ve left myself so little time to address it.>When Larch Bough had departed to tend to the needs of the village and we were left with Baba Hooves and Warm Embrace, we were given an offer. Though calling it a mere offer feels like I’m not doing justice to it.>We were invited to sleep within the walls of their gathering lodge. A warm fire well fueled for the night, enough space for us to lay out our sleeping bags, and the hopeful suggestion that we might sleep close together.>Sad to say that the moment was spoiled somewhat by Anon, one of our mountaineers, remarking that if these snowmares care so deeply for our apparent loneliness, maybe they should share their company with us.>I relate this only to speak to the character of the rest of my compatriots: the looks of disgust and dismay on their faces were matched only by the swift clip behind the ear Anon received.>Our leader declined the offer as graciously as he could, however, not wishing to impose further upon their already overwhelming generosity. I’m sure there’s more to it than that but I haven’t been able to spare the time to ask and he’s not related any other reasoning to the others.>And now I must end this letter, my friend, as I look up from the drying ink and see our doctor giving me a look that could sour even the freshest milk.>I’ll have more at the earliest possibility.>Your friend, pulled about like a sled,>Anonymous>Warm Embrace sat by the fire of Baba Hooves’ lodge and dutifully drank from the cup of bitter tea she held between her hooves.>The years since her fillyhood had not, in fact, done anything to improve its taste but when Baba asked somepony to sit and drink, it was a rare and regretful mare who declined.
>>37531999>”So none of the tales speak of them?” she said, glad for the opportunity to lower the cup from her muzzle and be free from the smell.>She was sure Baba made a point to take longer with her own draught and found herself pressing at the cup in her hooves idly.>”You think that if I knew I wouldn’t tell you?” asked Baba, when she’d finished drinking.>Warm clicked her tongue and caught herself before she took another mouthful from the cup.>She thought Baba knew more than she was letting on, as usual, but it wouldn’t do to approach it with that mindset.>”It just doesn’t make any sense,” Warm said quietly. Baba still watched her, waiting, and so Warm continued, “where did they come from? Why haven’t any of the other tribes ever said anything about them?”>”They come from the south, isn’t that what you told me?”>It was and it wasn’t. Hiemal was the one who’d argued with the strange creatures when they’d presented their map. Trying to translate their odd language through that argument had been a true test, especially with Hiemal insistent that nothing could possibly have come from that far to the south.>Which was true. It still didn’t answer any of the questions that brought Warm to where she sat, though.>Baba, however, still wore her small knowing smile and waited for Warm Embrace to speak.>”I don’t get the sense that they’re lying to us about that, though.”>”Nor I, Warm.” The elder mare took another long sip from her cup before speaking again. “And perhaps there’s more truth to it than they realise. Or choose to say.”>”Baba…” Warm groused.>The mare chuckled and pointed a hoof at Warm’s cup. “Drink your tea and I’ll tell you.”>Stars above but of course that’s what it’d come to. Baba insisted it was good for keeping one’s stomach settled but the effect the taste had on her own left Warm wanting to insist otherwise.>She knew better than to try and find some way around it, though. The shaman would get the tea into her, one way or another.>Steeling herself, Warm brought the cup to her lip and took the smallest sip she was sure Baba would allow her without insisting she take more.
>>37532000>”You’ll thank me tomorrow, Warm.” Baba took another sip from her cup and nodded. “And I’ll thank Forest Ken for getting me the herbs.”>That old mare probably loved the taste just as much as Baba did, Warm was sure. Maybe there was something about that age which brought with it a penchant for awful teas and inscrutability.>”Just as you’ll thank the stars for sending our guests to us.”>If it were any other mare, Warm knew they wouldn’t see her cocking an eyebrow beneath the heavy bangs of her mane.>”Tell me, Warm, have you been keeping an eye to the southern reaches of the night sky?”>Warm nodded. “When I have to, same as everypony else.”>The shaman took another sip from her cup before setting it down by the fire.>”Then you should know of the sight there that hasn’t been seen in so long.” Raising her forelegs into the air, Baba traced out a shape that Warm followed but didn’t recognise. With a sigh, Baba took her cup back in her hooves and pointed it at Warm. “No, I can’t blame you. Even the few tales I know say little.”>”So there are tales!” Warm set her own cup down and shuffled closer to the mare. “Baba, you have to tell me.”>The mare shook her head and turned her gaze to her cup. “Not of our guests, specifically. And all I can tell you is that they’re an omen.” >Warm frowned again. “You called them friends, Baba.”>”And I still believe them to be. But friends often bring tidings, hmm?” Warm made to inquire but Baba spoke over her, “when are we next to leave for Snowpitt?”>The question caught Warm off guard enough that she replied, “not until the next moon,” before realising how abrupt the shift had been.>”Then have Snow Glide and the others start making preparations as soon as they can.”https://ponepaste.org/5678 has been updated with this. Sorry for the shortness of the last two posts, it’s the best I could do to work around the character limit.
>>37531952Liking the sketch so far. I like doing backgrounds so I wouldn't mind helping out, you can go ahead and color the anon and mare though.
Got tired of working on this, so, mushroom foraging?
>>37532062simply superb art, pure soul. it looks so natural, like you've caught a snapshot into a typical day with ease
>>37532003Loving this although were the first couple of posts supposed to have images attached?Or are you baiting drawfags?
>>37531830Oh god she’s even singing to the filly.
>>37532062Holy shit all the detail is amazing!
>>37532062They roam the taiga, snuffling out shrooms and truffles. Later they will make a delicious cheesy mushroom pie and the world will be good.What a beautiful piece of art. You’ve been a godsend, Anon; your stuff always cheers me up.
>>37527903you hate WW that much?
>>37532062It's almost exactly what I imagine snowponies get up to during their daily lives. Phenomenal job as usual.
>>37531952I dunno how I missed this, but it looks great Anon. Also, that’s an A+ Calvin and Hobbes toboggan death run style sledding hill.
>>37532081Honestly, I've worried a few times that drawfags might think that but it's absolutely not what I'm attempting. I'd committed to the narrator being an artist capturing what he sees so I have to stick with that unless I go with some awful contrivance. If it's bothersome, though, I'm sure I can find some way around. Plus, I'm trying to not just slavishly follow what's already been posted and add my own flairs and details.
>>37532003This is top tier worldbuilding. I love the drawings.
>>37529864postmortem eye twitch. time to beat this ugly shit with a stick
>>37532237I wouldn't worry too much about that, any drawfag worth their salt would just use your writing as inspiration or not be bothered by any "DRAW THIS PLEASE" implications.Doing your own flairs and details is nice and committing to the narrator being an artist despite that is neat, with the pencil drawings of >>37531991 >>37531994 in particular really giving the vibe of them being something included in a missive, so kudos to that drawfag too.
>>37531830>tfw more amazing content based off of my vastly inferior drawingam i blessed? this is gorgeous
>>37532735>he didn’t realize he was posting on a Tibetan kayaking forum
>>37532237Yeah just as >>37532424 said I just see it inspiration, not baiting. I didn't even think that was a thing.
To pass the time snow pones will build snowponies.
I love them! I love them. I love them! I love them. I love them! I love them. I love them!
>>37533061Cute but wait a minute, that's not a snowpony. No wonder she's confused
>>37533063I know that feel.
>>37533061>>37533075Anon makes Snowman, confusing the snow pones
>>37533063me too bro
I wish I was background snowpone whatever (not one of the named characters incase I am not being clear enough) and lived with them in their cosy village.
Tried to upload this earlier but it was messed up. Its fixed now, today have a cute ball!
>>37533256She even spins
>>37533256that's a cute fucking ball I love her
>>37533437No! She'll get dizzy!
>>37533437>>37533451Can't stop her now
>>37533468Look at this cutie go!
>>37533644She can't be stopped
>>37533730she's going to be sick!
>>37533730What if, and hear me out on this, faster?
>>37533730Damn, beyblade has gotten a lot cuter.
>>37533739You monster, she's going to destroy the village at this rate
>>37533761I'm sure she can go even faster.
>>37533761>deep concern and fear intensifies
>>37533761>>37533767Scratch that, the entirety of the crystal empire
Started on a something wholesome before the work, but I'll also be very busy this weekend.
>>37533787I think she can go faster.
>>37533791oh I await with eager anticipation. Hope your weekend goes smoothly
>>37533791Cute! I love the filly's expression
>>37533787Soon she will hit critical levels of speeeeeeen.
>>37533791It looks great so far, can’t wait for the finished piece.>>37533787Good lord that’s fast. But not fast enough.
>>37533787It’s ok. This was how I wanted to die.
>>37533061Precious confused pony
>>37532003Good stuff anon, looking forward to any continuation.
>>37533787>>37533797>>37533814She's going so fast it broke my transparency. Now all of Equestria is doomed I don't know how to make her go faster its only 2 frames now
>>37532027Here you go anon, Go all out if you can to
>>37533865thanks! I'll do my best
>>37533770I NEED MORE PINE PONDER IN MY LIFEMOOOOORE
>>37533858In the coldest depths of winter the ponies gather around the filly dynamo in the shadmares yurt.
>>37533865They’re soooooo cute!
>>37533858Release her from the canvas, send her down the mountain, let the snow gather about her form and unleash ragnarok unto the world.
>>37533887I love her too. Her ears need gentle scritchies.
>>37533890>Shamares summon cue ball's spirit to spin in the firepit, her optimism and joy warming the coldest nights yet tempered by the knowledge of a young life cut short.Anon why did you make me imagine snowfilly being dead.
How do you differentiate a snowpone and a seemingly identical changeling impostor? Open a can of surströmming!
>>37533858Her body will be torn apart by the centrifugal force anon, she will will be ripped limb from limb and become a bloody explosion and the chunks of her that go flying will be moving fast enough to kill more ponies. You can’t spin her anymore, slow her down gradually, It’s far too late for her already, but you can stop her from being mutilated beyond recognition and return her to her family, grave lesson learned, do not spin the ponies, their bodies cannot take the G-forces. For whatever solace it may bring at least she went unconscious first as all her blood went to her brain
>>37533858Now someone needs to draw cue ball next to a puddle of frowup
>>37533934what does a pine cone cutie mark even represent?
>>37523862Sorry, I've been so damn busy at work I'm all worn out when I get home. That post is the most I've written in months.
>>37534122Don’t cut yourself with that edge, kid.
>>37534551Pinecones could mean a lot of things, Anon. Maybe she flourishes in crises, like a pinecone opening up only after a forest fire. Maybe it simply represents how she brings beauty in the world, like a pinecone growing into a beautiful tree. Maybe she’s a little prickly. Maybe she makes pine cone art. Maybe pinecones and fish are the standard offerings to the windigoes, offering life for life, and the seeds are representative of that life, and she’s deeply learned in windigo relationships.
>>37534770Why are they so perfect?
>>37534770I can watch this all day
>>37534770These single instruments just fit so perfect with the snowpones...
>>37533256cutest snowball ever
>>37534770That's super based
In the land of the midnight sun, estrus lasts a continuous 6 months
>>37534770THAT'S MY HOERS
>>37534770I love them guys
>>37534977Snowponies are for loving breeding for the production of snowfoals only.
>>37534988 THAT'S MY HORSE!
>>37533256when everyone's doing work she falls on her side onto the snow and spins like this
>>37534770Gosh I love them so much
>>37534770truly, who could resist chug-jugging with pony
>>37534770This style looks strangely familiar.
>>37535392It’s neuro, you might know the guardsmares he does too
>>37534770This made my morning. Thank you so much.
>>37534770how are they so cute bros
Board moving fast right now huh
>>37536143Wonder what the occasion is? Doesn't look like thread spam.
>>37536166It was. Page 9 became the last page.
>>37534770She’s so cute!
Might try coloring and making this into a Christmas postcard.
>>37536396I would love to see that
>>37525833>I'll take a try at it later tonightit's been a couple of days, how's it going anon?
>>37536396would be cute where anon is like a wandering barber in the taigaimagine being paid to give snowpones brushiesthe extra fur you can just recycle into thread >yfw snow ponies pay extra for yo to make carpets out their own fur
>>37474157Aw... it finally died.
>>37534770What a wonderful way to start the day
Ok, I’m well on my way towards Frosty’s fighting theme, but I need some announcer clips to throw in. What are her moves guys? So far I’ve only got:>Fish slap!>BIG BOOT COMBO!
>>37536396That would be a wonderful card.
It will be a shame that everyone in the fandom will forget this race in only 8 days , it was fun but people will want something that is genuinely refreshing
>>37536517It's taking a little longer than I thought, It was just going to be a quick sketch but I'm starting to like their designs and got carried away. Here's the wip so far
>>37536874Sounds cool, maybe something like>Frost Bite!
>>37536887You can get carried away any time you like
I don't know why but I've been very prolific lately. Hopefully I can keep it up. I drew one last mare for today, have a goodnight,
I'd like to see more art of Forest Ken, Whittleshoes, and River Spirit.I just like blonde mares.
>>37536911AND PINE PONDER DON'T FORGET PINE PONDER SHE NEEDS MUCH MORE ART PLEASE
>>37536906Goodnight, kind drawfag, and thank you for more best ethereal snowmare. Your art is beautiful.
>>37536852It's okay OP will be back in a couple months apparently. Just in time for christmas?
>>37536884Between that and deltarune today this general will lost all the artists
>>37536911seconding this, has Whittleshoes opened her eyes yet? What color eyes should she have?
>>37536933Blue or green is the only way.
>>37536906CUTE CUTE CUTE
>>37536933Definitely not blue, then she'd just be Aryanne clone. I'd say brown or maybe hazel.
>>37536980Hazel is not a pretty eye colour though, go for green.
>>37536983Too much blue and green. Voting for a cold gray.
>>37536874>BIG BOOT COMBO!Current Seeker and a couple fillies are the ones who like boots. Frosty hasn’t shown any interest afaik.
>>37536906She must step on her own mane like 24/7.
>>37536911>>37536933>WhittleshoesI thought it was Whittlehoof, or was there a change I missed?
>>37537010If it isn't Whittlehoof, it should be. That sounds way cuter
>>37537010It is Whittlehoof
>>37536906I don't know why but I love this mare a lot.
>>37537097Probably cause she’s a mare and you are a sharp and clever young man.
>>37536906My favourite snowmare, she's so ethereal and mystical looking. Lovely art.
>>37536887New F.A.G player concept art is coming along quite nicely anon, you're doing gods work. Keep it up man
This thread unironically has given me more hope for the fandom in years.
>>37534770this is the best thing I've ever seen
>>37537090is there an image of Trixie trying to nom on Pine Ponder?
>>37537003Ye but I like the meme.
>>37537003>Throw a boot.>Fillies pounce from off-screen to chase it.
>>37522197QRD: furries exist
>>37523085Kinda surprised it didn't wind up in the kitty collection.
>>37526561"Paddle-to-the-Sea", but with a snow pony.
Does the artist "Heir-of-Rick" know about snow ponies? He drew exceptionally fluffy ponies, I figure these would be a natural for him.
>>37537498I don't lewd snowpones. Well, unless you count wanting to give ear scritchies to Pine Ponder as lewd. They aren't for the sexual I think anyway.
>>37526849Different file codec, different size...
>>37537505It might yet.
>>37537495>snowmare strong>remove yaks
>>37522300will you take the forbidden peek
>>37537754aw she looks so uncomfortable being revealed like that
>>37537754Love this mare.
there is an ongoing civil war in Yakyakistan between the Yaks and the Yakutian Ponies
>>37537754Would you look at shaggy pone?Could you, shoul you, on your own?Would you lift her floofy hair?Would you stare right at this mare?Would you boop her on the snootWhile she’s all surprised and cute?Would you, even though it’s wrong?Would you, could you peek, anon?
>>37537783With a friend or on my own,I shall not gaze upon this pone!I'll leave alone this little mare,I will not look under her hair!Leave nose as well albeit it cute,no hand shall touch this shocked mare's snoot!A wretch you are, be sure, anon,to ask of me what is so wrong!
>>37537482>Pinecone Pounder!>Frosty tosses an enormous pinecone into the air; Pine Ponder flies down from the top of the screen, grabbing and carrying the cone to smash into the opponent.Although that might work better for a tag-team battle or the like.
>>37536874>>37536889>>37537482>>37537947If you remove the cutie mark, it’s just a fluffy horse. With a slight style tweak, a snowpony could easily fit into TFH.
>>37537754BASED BASED I want to take the peek under the fluff now!!!
>>37536906i want to pet her, please draw her being pet
>>37538194she's the only one I'd be worried about petting, I wouldn't want to offend her
brace for more draws, I'm going to make a mare today
>>37538205any snowpity worth its salt relishes the though of ear scritches.
>>37536852Ah well, it was fun working on that little green while it was there.
>>37538235>When you scratch a mare behind the ears, she feels it in her snowpitys Whoa.
>>37536874Some projectiles could be good, she could throw snowflakes, snowballs, and fish, for light, medium, and heavy variants.
>>37538258>snowpitys>snowmares have multiple snowpitysbig if true
>>37537754Yes and then boop her
>>37538380I'm sure all mares have a single snowpitys, but snowmares must have the hardiest snowpyta of all races.
I sent the polka video to my family, they thought it was cute.
>>37538211I look forward to your mare
two friends balance a cone. why? i dont know
>>375391482 fillies 1 coneCute!
>>37539148It probably just opened.https://youtu.be/cEzEm0kqVRw
>>37538821neuro you beautiful bastard https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tUUe7Y29To
>>37539148Games snowpones play
>>37539148This is what friendship looks like.
Frosty Flakes Stage Themehttps://u.smutty.horse/mdeinhmxqct.mp3I tried to reflect her friendly and bouncy personality with some tinkly ice sounds and a little modal mixing in minor in the background since it is a fight after all. Probably not done; I'm going to try to tune up the instrumentation some instead of using almost unaltered TAL presets but probably done for the night and if this is our last thread for a while I didn't want to miss the bump limit. Plus I'll probably just get bored and do something else, let's be honest. All grunts, hits, panting etc are bona fide pony sounds from the show if that makes anyone feel better.
>>37539243Oh right, duh, and I was supposed to say that her accompanying melody is Bark, Roots and Lichen. I know that Ice Fishing might have been better, but it just didn't come across that well.
>>37539243sounds great! Do you have a version without the sound affects in the background?
>>37539257I’m sure I can upload one when I get back from dinner!
>>37539148Whatever the reason, they are precious little cone pones
This was posted in a previous thread but to whoever drew it, I just wanna say this image brings me nothing but pure joy and bliss and I thank you for it.
>>37539148>why? i dont knowWhy are you.....not
They will hate me.Just like everything else hates me.
>>37539408I love ya buddy.
>>37539408>come into thread about cute ponies who are made of love and fluff>make it all about you and your pity partythey probably would hate you

>>37536911Since anons asked, today have Forest Ken stacking sticks!
>>37539495So focused. So intense.This is the apex of skill.
>>37539495what a nice little faggot she made
>>37539499Looks like another type of faggot came by
>>37539499>>37539508shit image wasnt linked
The Kirin is dabbing on the Snowponies.

>>37539512Faggots attacking faggots. This is a little too close to home.
>>37539495How high can she go?
>>37539536How high do you want it bby?
>>37539517I still want more art of Snowpones interacting with Kirin. They're adorable opposites.
>>37539542If she makes it above the cloud layer she'll get a gold star.
>>37539243Pretty interesting choice, I like it!
>>37539512This is the kind of crime that gets you set adrift on an ice floe while you sleep
>Venture into snowpony territory>A young, floofy mare approaches you, a fish in her mouth>She drops it at your feet, stares at you expectantly, and wags her tailWhat do you do?
This thread is beautifulLong live the snowmares
>>37539597Me on the left.Every night...
>>37522137The way to Snowmare's heart is a hefty dose of Ivermectin.Ponies love that stuff.
>>37539582Can’t accept fish. Married to Derpy.Snowmare will understand; she has a good soul.
>>37539512>>37536915It'll be okay pine Ponder is here to help.
>>37539620God I love this.>>37539622Ah, a gentleman of culture I see.
>>37539622and that's why pussy smells like fish
>>37539622i-is this OC thanks to my post?
>>37539645No, it was posted in the drawthread after the original snowmare image.
>>37539620She was thoughtful enough to bring a weighted stick for when the tower starts to tip too.
>>37539693Enough frames that it'd have to be her super
>>37539693Look at her go!
>>37526486>>37531830Welp, two really good candidates for the next OP pic. Anyway, not gotta happen until the page 9/10 so we have a good time to choose unless a faggot try to bump a lot of page 10 threads like yesterday
>>37538821This is what I hearhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iVnhp9hRS8
>>37534770I love this.
>>37539620Pine ponder is such a cutie
>>37539243Very nice work.
>Intent give her grumpy eyes>Results: Gave her a reason to not have grumpy eyesI promise I'll do her eyes eventually but I got distracted and gave her a cupcake/muffin to go with her fish.
>>37539897That is so adorable, great work!
>>37539897Mackerel cupcakes are a snowpony specialty.
>>37539897>cupcake as big as her headSnowmare cuisine is fuckin wild
