Ponies and pony artists, lend me your ears! After many trials, tribulations and setbacks including but not limited to power outages, personal emergencies, broken scripts, and very angry dogs, I am here to announce that the Artist Training Grounds is officially back on its feet! Please give a huge thank you and round of applause for the incomparable and recently christened (Riot) Reinboom for writing our new submission script. She saved me from Michigan, and now she's saved me from death by e-mails. My hero!
You'll find the new submission site right here. Make sure you fill out every section, and it'll take care of the rest. If you need something clarified for any reason, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sound good? Sounds good. Oh, and just in case you haven't seen enough pony art tutorials, have this amazing batch from our dear friends at the ATG Alumni, who were kind enough to keep the event floating while 1001 technical problems knocked me out.
If you are submitting from DeviantART:
You need to make sure you select the actual image url and send that. Do not link the DA page, or it will fail. Right click the image, select "view image", and put in the resulting page. Thanks, and sorry for the confusion!
Restart Day 1: Draw a pony in armor.
Relevant link. I know, I know. This is the farthest thing in the world from progress, and I'm sorry. But there were so many problems, and so many of you who missed out or lost the chance at getting posted, and I want to give you a real chance at doing this legitimately. So re-send your Day 1 works, or make a new one, or retouch your old one. Just send me armored ponies. You have until 7 pm PST tomorrow (we're primtime now. Yaaaaay). Then, Day 2. For realz. I promise.
