• Newbie Artist Training Grounds: Day 4




    calamari saved my life edition. Did you know I actually got to read things today? I even played some video games! Don't think for a second I would have given up if we hadn't found an alternate route, but after yesterday's low point I think I needed this helping hoof more than I realized. And you guys certainly provided a great stress test for the program today! I'm counting 286 Great and Powerful ponies. A lot more Trollestia than I would have expected, but hey. They don't call her the bestia for nothing.

    Here's your nightly reminder to send the next day's images in through this new super awesome program, explained here. If for some reason you just can't get it to work, don't worry about it and just e-mail it instead. I can handle a couple of extra manual uploads on the end easy peasy.

    The Theme of the Day

    Draw a pony eating fruit. These are art lessons, and this is your obligatory foray into still lifes, except that there are also ponies. Or maybe I just need an excuse to explain why the phrase "Two dollar whole banana" is hilarious. That will make sense tomorrow, I promise.





    On a personal note, I wanted to say thank you to everypony who sent along their well wishes along with their submissions. I even had a couple of people e-mail me for no other reason than to tell me thank you and offer their condolences after the death of my cat yesterday. I'm still having some difficulties with that, but I am feeling infinitely better than I was 24 hours ago, due in no small part to all of you. Stay awesome, bronies. Oh, and on a slightly more upbeat note - I keep getting messages as a result of this event addressing me with, "Dear Princess Phoe". And every time I see it I giggle and clap like a six year old girl who just found out she's being taken out for ice cream. This is what you do to me. And I think that's enough embarrassing revelations for now. The Show Must Go On!
