Spotlight: The Analysis Videos of CorpulentBrony!

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 19, 2014, 10:08 PM
-Written by Boardgamebrony-

Hey everypony! We have another artist spotlight here. This time it's for our Patreon supporter CorpulentBrony who has made some really cool analysis videos!

Here's two of his videos:




CorpulentBrony talks about instances which detail the units of time used in Equestria, such as hours, minutes and such. The show makes some details rather clear, but you'll be surprised to find out a little more about the passing of moons...





CorpulentBrony details his findings of time in Equestria through the episodes of My Little Pony. Using indicators in the episodes, like time passing, mentions of "days," "weeks," and so on, CorpulentBrony determines what is the most likely amount of time which has passed between seasons 1 thru 3 of MLP:FiM. It turns out that characters mention such information quite regularly and the findings are rather surprising if you originally thought that an Equestrian year was the same as our own.

---

CorpulentBrony puts a lot of effort into meticulously examining the episodes to find evidence which would back up his findings. His videos really help solidify some of the temporal concepts present in the show, which we already know is famous for its attention to details other children's shows would be quick to overlook. He does an excellent job of keeping things based on canon and keeping fanon out of the evidence examinations. I recommend you take a look and tell us what you learn about his analyses of all our favorite colorful cartoon ponies and their world. : )

I like these analysis videos about My Little Pony because they not only give the fans a chance to delve into the details of the world, but also let us look at the framework of concepts the writers and artists have put into a show we've come to hold so dear. Little discoveries like information about the passing of time help show that the creators of MLP:FiM really do care about world-building, which we subsconsciously recognize as genuine. They create a latticework of foundations for not only their own canon, but provide opportunities for fans to add on to the universe on their own.

Take a look at CorpulentBrony's great videos and tell him what you think! Leave a comment for him and subscribe. :)

Discuss: Ponies in the House of your Mind

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 19, 2014, 7:55 PM

:iconboardgamebrony: -Written by Boardgamebrony-

Today I was struck with an idea: What if the houses people built are actually physical examples of how their mind is organized?

I’m sure many of us here have ponies on the brain 24/7. I’d imagine if this was represented by a house, these ponies would wonder into pretty much every room.

There’s the Living Room, where we share with others and invite people into our lives. Living Rooms often have places to show off as well, with trophy cases and photos. What is in your Living Room is what you want people to see.

There’s the Kitchen, where we make things for others and for ourselves. It’s a public place too and the source of many gatherings of comfort for ourselves, family and friends. The kitchen is a place of the house where you bring someone you trust a little more than when they’re in the Living Room.

The Bathroom is usually private and a place for us to refresh ourselves, prepare ourselves to present to the world and for solace sometimes when every other room is crowded.

The Bedroom is a special place and usually only the most trusted of people get to enter here. It can be a place of rest, study, or intimacy. It’s a versatile room, and often the deepest into the house.

The Closet is where you keep things you aren’t ready for yet. Your storage of things you don’t have time for, but consider valuable nonetheless. Only you are allowed to pull from your closet when you’re ready.

And then there’s the Attic, Basement or Storage Room. You put stuff in here you don’t want others to see. Maybe things you’re afraid of showing others. Maybe things you’re afraid to show yourself.  

 

So here’s the question for those of you wonderful enough to have read through the description of the entire house: Where do you place your love of ponies in this house? What's the symbolic meaning of where you place the ponies in your mental house?

 

MLP:FiM Library - Vector by DaAfroMan

(Golden Oak Library, before its explosion caused the rustling of one million jimmies to cry out, and become suddenly silenced.) (by DaAfroMan)


I’ll give you an example using me. Also Vinyl Scratch. She represents how I feel about ponies in different parts of my life, or house:

:icondj-p0n3: “This is your house, huh?”

:iconboardgamebrony: “Yeah. It’s got quite a few rooms. A little messy, but it has everything I need.”

:iconvinylsqueeplz: “The Living Room’s really nice!”

:iconboardgamebrony: “I really do try to impress people who come over.”

:iconvinylstareplz: “This Kitchen table doesn’t look like it’s used too often.”

:iconboardgamebrony: “People who visit don’t stay long.”

*Vinyl goes into the Bathroom. Sees a dingy mirror.*

:iconvinylscratchwhatplz: “Can’t see yourself too well in that,”

:iconboardgamebrony: “I use the mirror in the bedroom more often.”

:iconseductivevinylplz: “Can I see it?”

:iconboardgamebrony: “No.”

:iconsadvinylscratchplz: “…Why not?”

:iconboardgamebrony: “No one goes in the bedroom but me. Here, I’ll make you something from the Kitchen…”

Extra: Here are some other rooms you can apply symbolism to when constructing your mental house.

Garden
Library
Stables
Barn

Battle for Equestria Background (Free for Reuse) by drawponies
Battle for Equestria Background (Free for Reuse)
So I've spent a good portion of the past three days making this absurdly detailed background for a commission, and I thought I'd put it out as a resource for people to use.

As a reminder, all of my work (including this piece) is subject to the following rules for reuse:
1. Link to me in the description of your art and anywhere you post the piece (example: Background by Drawponies - drawponies.com )
2. Do not use in works you are going to sell
3. Send me a link to your finished work so I can see it :D

Thanks guys!  Love you ^^
