• Newbie Artist Training Grounds: Day 14


    Game Night at Lyra and Bon Bon's edition. So. Tonight. Tonight is fun. Did you ever have family game night when you were growing up? I didn't. My parents and I were all kind of lazy, so we'd sit together on the couch and watch The Simpsons or Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? together. I mean, we'd play board games sometimes, but it was only ever a spur of the moment, once-and-done, oh my goodness why on earth did we think Monopoly would be fun kind of deal. So other than card games like Magic, I never really did much with the tabletop scene for a long time. It wasn't until college that I learned that there were games not made by Hasbro (oh, the irony!), and got sucked into things like Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, and more recently gems like Red Dragon Inn. You should see my collection. Between that and the video games, there's basically no room in my apartment. Anyway, ponies! 157 of them tonight!

    Time to do that boring thing again. Here's the submission guidelines. If anything breaks, shoot a line to phoe@equestriadaily.com and I will magically solve all of your problems with the unicorn magic I do not have. I outsource, you see.

    The Theme of the Day

    Draw a pony representing a famous myth or classic story.
    I've basically given up on this week being anything other than Crossover central, so why fight it? Let's inject a little class all up in this place! Draw me your triumphant samurai ponies, the heroic last stand of the Spartan Cloplites, Twilight Sparkle as Odin... you know, whatever you feel like. Okie Dokie, Loki!


    Suddenly I regret dropping my anecdote above the page break. Suddenly we're here and I have nothing to talk about. Uh... oh, how about these pictures? They're very nice pictures, I like them a lot. Can you believe we've been doing this for two weeks now? I can't. Keep going strong, everypony! You make me proud every night. Now then, it's time to roll the dice.
