• Newbie Artist Training Grounds: Day 8


    I kind of cheated today; you'll see this image again in the actual gallery. I don't mean for it to look like I'm playing favorites (I'm not), I just really like the sketchy look for these posts, and I fail hard at image searches. Especially after a week of not sleeping due to this event. I think I might be too heavily invested in it for my own good. Oh well! My body can take the hit in the name of ponies. That pillow pile, though. So tempttzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    - an hour later - Wha huh? Oh. Right. Where was I? It's been another extremely enthusiastic day for responses. 199 sleepers and dreamers. Remember once again, submission guidelines and... um... stuff. Man those pillows look nice. Don't they? Wow those are nice pillows. Scoot over, Fluttershy.

    The Theme of the Day

    Draw a pony with bedmane. All those sleepy ponies just woke up. Were they tossing and turning? Fighting off a bad hangover? Just escaped from the Grand Galloping Gala? I bet there's all sorts of interesting stories you could tell with a simple little theme like that...




    So as it turns out you guys are like 15 steps ahead of me. I keep trying to be clever with these themes, and you just keep stepping it up and up and up to exceed my expectations. Perhaps befitting of a day so chock full of Inception references, my mind is nothing but powder. Also, as I've now gotten like... 7 or 8 requests for references on how to draw me as a pony (I've been asked this so many times in so many different contexts, is that weird?), just draw a nice plain white pegasus. The lead-in image from yesterday's gallery works as a reference. Go nuts. Or don't. Something. I don't make sense anymore. Enter Sandman below...

    -edit- Don't let all the "I'm tired" comments fool you, I'm still having so much fun working with this event. You're all the bestest students a Blogprincess could ask for. Celestia made me amend my title before she would let me come down from the moon. Meanie.
