MCM V: Pixel Gifts - Finale

Recommended Posts

Previously in 2016, Poniverse's Making Christmas Merrier V campaign was raising money for an organization called Charity: Water.
Just like this year, there were many events happening on the forums as the goals were achieved.

Since I was unable to donate, I decided to give my time and effort instead.
I offered you all a side event, where I was giving little gifts to those, who donated.
"Very generous indeed!" -PiratePony :D 

More information about my little, yet demanding :P project:

Now it's been a while since it went quiet, due to me completing the requests.
...But there was still something I had planned, so the project wasn't truly finished.

Until now...

This year in June, @PiratePony has announced the final update of MCM V, sharing the results of that campaign.
Quoting his post;

New and maybe final update! After a year and a half, the donation wells are complete!

Our campaign contributions of $4,255 went to two wells:

1) EPC de Navurune School in Mozambique. It serves 521 people. 

2) Mueri community in Mozambique. It serves 300 people.

Thanks to your generous contributions, Poniverse has helped bring clean water to 821 fellow human beings.  Great job guys. I am so proud of you guys , and it was an honor to head up this event. We truly will make these folks' Christmases and every day merry for years to come. 

Thank you for a wonderful event. Bless you all.

Under the links he provided you can find more information about the achieved goals with photos attached.
And this was the time for me to provide the final gift for everypony, who took part in my little project...

This gift is a ponified group photo of some sort, that is summarizing the MCM V and my project.
It is also based on the real photos found under the links mentioned above.

So first things first, please meet the last pony, that I designed for this gift:

She represents the ones in need (see the real photos for reference).
I gave her name "Hope Sprinkle", which is a reference to the charity's goal of bringing the clean water to developing countries and communities that do not have access to it.

 

And now it is my turn to say thank you to everyone who donated and kept me busy with all those requests. :D

It's nothing amazing I know, but all I had were these pixel ponies facing towards the same direction. :mlp_icwudt:
Nevertheless, I believe it does the job. :mlp_grin:

 

Oh I cannot even express how many days--weeks--months it took me to get that all done, despite it looking so simple. ^_^
For me it was a good practice and an amazing opportunity to do and share something with the others.
It was a pleasure to work with you, for you all. :darling:

 

And finally the time has come to officially announce, that this project is COMPLETED!

They look as though they're about to sing... SONG CUE!

...

... no?  Well, it's STILL hellacute.

Thank you so very sincerely for this - well worth the wait, and a great way to look back on Days of Generosity Past!  EXCELSIOR!

And to all those who donated, thank you from the very bottom... AND top... of our hearts; Rarity would be proud.  :-D

@Rikifive

Wow...what an amazing cap to the event, and totally unexpected to see. You brought a tear to my eye with this one... I'm so touched, and it captures the spirit of the event and whimsy of MLP. It's perfect. You know that your pixel art had a special place in my heart during MCM V and was our unofficial mascot in way.

 

Thank you so much for making this. It's amazing. :D:D

@Creamimaxis It's a perfect occasion for singing indeed. :darling: Oh yes, it brings back good memories. :fluttershy:

@PiratePony I cannot express how happy I am to hear that. :fluttershy: I'm so glad, that these silly little works of mine managed to get way further than I expected. :mlp_please: Even though it's nothing amazing, I'm strongly attached to this project, as it has a great value for me. It was a promise for a good case I had to keep and now I feel accomplished for getting it to the end. Given how long it took me to get it all done, I think I can say, that this project plays a big part in my story here on MLPF. It was a pleasure to work on something like this, despite how challenging it was. ^_^ The reactions were the best rewards I could ask for. Also of course, it generated good memories I'll never forget. :mlp_grin:

Thank you @PiratePony for your support and I'm really happy you liked the results. :ticking:

I am still scratching my head wondering why I haven't heard about this incentive even once over the course of all these months.

Hmm... That's a good question @PassionEqE4vfd.png

When something weird happens, it's usually because Jeric broke something, so I'm *suspecting*, that he has something to do with this. :mlp_icwudt: jk

^ That's actually not a fake. It's 100% legit screenshot I took about 6 months ago. :mlp_wink:

Slightly emotional note: Seraphic Amity is actually my late wife’s @Just Jessi OC. This was the first and last MCM she directly participated in as we spent that Christmas in a hospital, and she passed away less than a month later. Having her on this (especially next to @Troblems) is a bit of a late Christmas present for me. The name of the last OC would meet her approval. 

Thank you @Rikifive

Goddamn, Jeric... stop givin me the sads... now I wanna hug you even more and feel so meaner voting Zecora for your crossplay.

For a second, I wondered why I never heard of this until it was all done... then realized it was for a past MCM done when I was away from here.

@Jeric , @Just Jessi Oof last gut punch of 2018. It's nice to see her avatar, rather than a deflated plushie, in pieces though.

@Rikifive the picture looks phenomenal. I also still love the animation I have from last year <3
