• Newbie Artist Training Grounds: Day 16


    I am very, very pleased with how tonight came out. There's some good puns sprinkled throughout, but for the most part we have a very beautiful, peaceful collection of ponies that just makes me want to close my eyes, put on some orchestral music and take a deep breath. Actually, hold that thought for just one second... ok, back. Joining us tonight are 155 windswept equines. By special request, we're going to debut an extra feature here that's sure to amaze: a full tally of ALL of the pictures you guys have sent in so far! Are you ready for this? 3,253!! High hoof, everypony!

    Ok, while the blood's still pumping, let's get the boring stuff out of the way. Submission guidelines are here, and you can send all questions, concerns, and failed attempts to phoe@equestriadaily.com. I do love hearing from you guys!

    The Theme of the Day

    Draw a pony dressed as or hanging out with a famous person/pony. Today's theme was a suggestion by one Cereal Velocity. I asked him if he counted, and he got all quiet and embarrassed. He's so cute. But for the record, I say web personalities count. And not because I'm shamelessly hoping for a flood of Phoe/Lyra. Well... not just because. Don't look at me like that!



    Lately, it's been really hot where I live and there hasn't been much in the way of breezes. Looking at some of these is making me insanely jealous. I'm melting. I tried eating an ice cream cone during this, but I wound up needing a bowl. Celestia, you and I aren't friends right now. No, go ahead. Send me to the moon. See if I care. You don't scare m--
