• Artist Training Grounds: Mock War, Day 4


    Welcome back, recruits! I'm happy to see you're learning the masterful art of tic tac toe as a style of dueling. It's complicated and deadly, and it's often said that the only winning move is not to play, but my goodness when it's in action is it ever beautiful. Ahem. Today was back to what this event is all about - scrambling to get a picture made inside of 24 hours. It's hard, isn't it? But you've risen to the challenge, with 420 fighters with eyes of fire. That brings our official total for the event up to 1478 images! You're doing so well, keep it up!

    As always, here are your submission guidelines for the event. Remember to send your images in here, which you hopefully won't crush under the weight up your uploads this time. Remember once again to get the full image url if you're linking from DeviantART! And yadda yadda yadda, names and comments, you've heard this all before. Sorry that this is always the most boring part of the post.

    Day 4: Your Princess Is In Another Castle
    It's now been more than a week since the battles started, and each day has been much the same. You wake up, you charge out, and you scramble and try not to get the tar beaten out of you while raspberry jam flies around like so much nuclear waste. That is, until today. Today, there is no wakeup call and march to battle. Instead, you find yourself herded into a tent full of very important looking ponies. They give the briefest of nods before returning to the map on the table in front of them.
    "So," a purple unicorn begins, "What do we know?"
    "Well, as you are aware, several major objectives are handed out throughout the contest. And if I may say, they are worth major points. We've just heard about the largest of those: a surgical strike and rescue mission. It's time to save our captured princess."
    "They got the princesses in on this? Who do we get? Luna? Celestia?"
    "Er... um... no, not exactly. She's a... well, let's call her a 'volunteer'.  You met her the other day, remember? White pegasus, pinkish mane, tangled up in the auxiliary cabling? She was very eager for this."
    And now all eyes turn to you. It's all you can manage to stare blankly back. "Um... what do you need me for?"
    "Well, that's simple!" the purple unicorn smiles, "You're going to get in there and save her! Because our charts say you're the best of the... um... remaining."
    Assignment: Draw a pony on a rescue mission 

    Deadline 1:  January 26 at 7:00 PST (GMT - 08:00)

    Time is rapidly creeping up on me once again, and there's so little time to leave all of the comments I want to in here. The amount of pony going on in here is absolutely staggering, and loathe as I am to admit it, there might be too much for me to keep up with in real time. I know that for whatever reason, my silly little comments mean a lot to many of you, so rather than leave it all sit, what I'm going to do today is dive back in after everything has calmed down and comment away. That way if you check back in the morning you'll see a gallery looking exactly like it's supposed to. I want to make as many of you happy as I can. Thanks for your patience and understanding, everypony. Nope, too much other stuff to do. I just plain suck at this anymore. :( Please enjoy this Day 3 Gallery:
