• Newbie Artist Training Grounds: Day 9


    Yeah, that looks about right. I swear I never used to be this tired at 3 AM. Am I getting old? Or maybe it's just because it's been more than a week at this point. Are you getting tired too, everypony? I wouldn't blame you if you were; this is a lot of work to keep up with! But even if you're feeling down, let's keep going forward together, ok? If you're feeling a little drained at this point I understand, but you're all doing so amazingly so far, and I know you have it in you to keep going. I believe in you! Just like I believe these 189 bushy maned ponies are some of the cutest things I've ever laid eyes on. Er... not accounting for filly night just a few days back. Look, you guys make a ton of cute art, ok?

    Here is your daily link to the submission page, along with a brief reminder that if you can't get it to function properly after several tries, please feel free to send it along to phoe@equestriadaily.com. It will knock your entry down to the bottom, but at least it'll be there, right? A second bit of clarification, as I'm getting more comments about being confused by this. The deadline is Midnight at Pacific Daylight Time (GMT -7).

    The Theme of the Day

    Draw two(!) ponies making music.
    And also one of the ponies should be using a string instrument that's smaller than a double bass and similar to a harp and she should have a mint colored coat and... ok, I'm kidding. Or am I? Yes. But... anyway. Two ponies. Music. Orchestral ponies on parade. Or maybe shipping central. We're being extra ambitious today because it's the weekend. Whee!



    Tonight's one of those nights where I don't think I have a whole lot left to say tonight that wouldn't just be keeping you away from seeing all these lovely ponies. The quality of the ideas and execution is as stellar as ever. I do want to apologize if it seems like my commentary kind of peters out as the submissions tick on tonight. I heard some things that kind of shook me up a bit most of the way through sorting, and I'm having difficulty cracking jokes right now. Things will be better tomorrow, I promise! The morning after...
