• Newbie Artist Training Grounds: Day 17


    I am completely shameless and loving it edition. If tonight is any indication, I am among the most famous ponies in the universe, trumped only by Adam Savage, Jamie Hyneman, and Albert Einstein. I... don't feel like I fit in with this group somehow. Science! Science!! SCIENCE! ...Blogpony. I've been demoted for a day in exchange for early release from the moon. Tomorrow if I'm good, Celestia says I can have my crown back. I'm so excited! And you know what else is exciting? Meeting celebrities! And we've got plenty here for you, 128 in all. For a given definition of celebrity. Firing up the counting machine, that brings us to 3,379 images in all. I know the meme stats show we bury the internet in pony art every day, but this is massively cooler than a bunch of screencaps and reaction shots. I think we're making a real impact over here!

    Blah blah blah, submission guidelines, yadda yadda yadda, phoe@equestriadaily.com. That was the most condensed and also least helpful version of that recap to date. What else can I say? Send pictures of ponies, tell me if you have problems.

    The Theme of the Day

    Draw a pony in space. I'm rather pleased with this one because it's returning to the roots of this event. Do you know how many ways there are to interpret this one? It's a lot. But I'm looking forward to seeing some pony astronauts, and expecting a ton of Portal 2 references. Come on, bronies. Get it out of your system while it's still the weekend. Also, Luna.


    You know, it's kind of funny. Last weekend I had been braced for a massive upsurge in entries, figuring this would be the point at which everypony would be the least busy. Then I forgot you all had lives. Turns out this is the day you have the least time to devote to drawing! Well, that's ok. You guys deserve a break every once in a while. Your job's a lot more difficult than mine. I hope this isn't getting boring for you, though! I know the constant grind can wear you down, but keep at it, we're almost 2/3 of the way to the finish line. Just think about how good it'll feel to get there and know that we never gave up. I believe in you! And I'm back to sounding like a self help novel, which is as sure a sign as any that it's time to talk a stroll down the Equestria Walk of Fame:
