Skyware, also goes by the name of Skware Blox, has an entry for this.

Here is a link to his DeviantArt page: http://skwareblox.deviantart.com/
Here's a link to his Tumblr: http://ask-doodlydoo.tumblr.com/
And here's a link to the Entry: http://skwareblox.deviantart.com/art/Princess-luna-as-the-headless-horse-354539951

He apologises for not being able to post it himself. He's in Vegas and his connection is slow.

I have two submissions.

The first is this one. I explain why here: http://mlpchan.net/oat/res/317292.html#327366

This image is from Too Many Pinkie Pies.

This image is my favourite premise from the episodes. Trixie's return. Nothing essay-worthy, I know. But it's nice to image and draw.

Skyware helped me with this, but we have agreed that this is my image.

Same URLs as in the previous post.

Sorry for the delay, guys, real life happened.

Now, before I say anything else, I'd like to thank everyone who participated, I honestly didn't expect such amazing art for this contest. Thank you very much!
But that's a double edged sword, because deciding who won the contest is now all the harder…
Disclaimer, skip if you just want the results:
I don't necessarily believe in art being meant for contests - or for any kind of public display, for that matter- so it kind of breaks my heart to have to choose winners. More than one of you deserves to be first, to me.
I've decided to try to be 'objective' about all this, and judged the pieces on a few criteria: Inventivity, emotion and style. Inventivity being how original you were in how you decided to treat the subject, emotion being how much emotion you tried to convey through it, and style being, well, graphical style.
There were no "marks", obviously, I just judged them on these 3 criteria.

Now, to the results, and the winners!
Third place, and now owner of a Cheerilee Happy Meal figure and an FIM coloring book
Mortimer !HooveS/Nlc, with his depiction of the "Crystal Princess" scene from the season's first episode.
Cadence's pose isn't one you find very often in pony art, and you managed to do it with brio. It was pretty much one of the best scenes you could have picked from this ep in my opinion - with Twilight inverting gravity, which is also in my top of the season.
The idea was good, and you executed it very well, as someone who enjoys your art, this one is, imho, one of your best.

Second place, winning a Rarity brushable and FiM coloring book
paperponi!Pap3rPONy2, with his amazing picture inspired from "Wonderbolts Academy". The style is amazing, the picture inspiring, and the expression of every single pony is perfect, from Lightning Dust's self-assured smile to [whatever big-white pony is called]'s serious face that made me chuckle.
Congratulations to you too!

First place, who'll be featured in the next /chat/ sticky, and wins a 12-piece set of pony figurines, an FiM coloring book and a sticker book
Greeny!SqueAkSiEs, with his two pieces, a wide fresco depicting all of S3, along with a more detailed and much more intimate image of Cadence and Shining Armor.
Now, before anyone gets mad at me for letting 2 entries count as one: Greeny's first picture by itself wins the contest. Why? Because of the amount of work he put into it, and of how much each one of these little drawings made me want to watch each episode again.
The graphic style isn't as developed as the ones that got 3rd and 2nd place, but style isn't everything (also, he just had a few days to make it, and that picture is _huge_), and I feel like Greeny truly captured the spirit of season 3 in this piece of art.

However, I can't put it as image for a sticky, unless I crop it, in which case it'll lose most of its interest and strength, to me at least. Which is why Greeny's second entry will be the one featured in the next /chat/ sticky! I hope you won't be upset at me, Greeny ^^

Now… about the first prize and OP featuring in stickies.
You have all done an amazing job, and for that reason, I reserve myself the right to use some of your entries for future OPs on different boards, in which case I will obviously link your dA / tumblr as well.
However, it's a personal choice, that I'm doing as a very personal appreciation for your efforts to produce art for this contest, and I won't go out of my way to do it, obviously.

Congratulations to our 3 winners!
You can mail me at [email protected], or PM me for those who have me on steam, to give me the coordinates to send the prizes to.
If you're not in the top 3, don't let it bring you down! This is all just for fun, and again, choosing was very, very hard… I'd like to thank AlleyKat, Spirit Shine, Coco, Skyware and Miroku for participating, I enjoyed your art a lot!

Have a great day, or night, depending on where you live, and thank you for participating!

skyware(tablet) 2698

Congratulations to the winners I hope you enjoy your prizes and I'm glad your hard work paid off so well! Keep up the good work!

seems you are going with quantity over quality, kinda sad for the other guys, and I'm not referring to the number of pictures.
your comments also kinda sound like your implying the other guys didn't spend at least the same amount of effort into their things that's kinda harsh

File: 1362436242507.png (79.89 KB, 217x287, what's the matter.png)

Which part of "You have all done an amazing job" can possibly be ambiguous in the least about my opinion of the rest of the artists?

I have the greatest respect for those I knew among the contestants - Greeny isn't one of those, by the way, I didn't know him at all before I saw him in this thread- and I don't think any of them didn't put any effort in it.
But as I said, style isn't everything.

Quantity over quality? Define quality… I found Greeny's picture more inventive than the others, the transitions between eps are clever, and the whole idea of that picture is simply awesome.

I understand that you could feel this way, but I stand by my judgement, I thought about this for two full days, and believe I made the right choice.

Completely agree with the choice of winner. In all honesty, if it had been a public vote, I would have voted for Greeny's entry. More than any other picture, it reminded me just how awesome season 3 really was <3

I'm looking forward to colouring in all the ponis :>
