• Artist Training Grounds: Mock War, Final Gallery


    It's over! It's done! Hurray and huzzah! Congratulations and good work, everypony. With the weekend calling, it's time to go home, and you've chosen to go out with a bang! A bang? Like "!" or like this? No, like 294 ponies and the places they call home. For those of you keeping track at home, that's a grand total of 1771 submissions! That's one heck of a five day total!

    None of this would have been possible without the help of a lot of ponies. Ponies like Sethisto, who puts up with my shenanigans in the first place and planted the seeds for this event with that poll of his. Reinboom, of course, for pulling my flank out of the fire and giving you a place to send your ponies. Cereal and PK for making sure I stayed energetic and engaged no matter what. And last but far from least, each and every one of you. These events take a lot out of all of us, and it just thrills me to no end to see you all keeping pace and working as hard as you have. You put up with a lot of problems, and you cranked out some amazing stuff. Good work, everypony?

    A final spark of light spits out of the portal, now closed forever. Whether you left or stayed, this place no longer is the bustling center of activity it once had been, save for a few tired looking ponies in party hats cleaning up and packing it all away. The question lingers: what now?

    But you knew the answer before you asked it. Move forward. Take the momentum and the memories of all of the things you've accomplished in this short time, and show the world exactly what you're made of.  Just days ago, you were sure you couldn't, but now... now you know you can. The sun shines on a brand new day. What challenges will you conquer next?


    Roads go ever ever on,
    Over rock and under tree,
    By caves where never sun has shone,
    By streams that never find the sea;
    Over snow by winter sown,
    And through the merry flowers of June,
    Over grass and over stone,
    And under mountains in the moon.
    Roads go ever ever on
    Under cloud and under star,
    Yet feet that wandering have gone
    Turn at last to home afar.
    Eyes that fire and sword have seen
    And horror in the halls of stone
    Look at last on meadows green
    And trees and hills they long have known.
