• Newbie Artist Training Grounds II: Day 5

    This is the single greatest metaphor for the NATG I have ever seen. I could go on for hours and hours about how much I love this, but time is short so I'll have to be brief. It's not what you do compared to those around you, but that you gave it your all and made a better you. A new personal best is always something to be excited about, and it's worth working hard for. So to all of you who have stuck through these first four days and given us these 758 ponies, thank you. It's a Sunday and this was a more complicated prompt, so to me this is even more impressive than day 1. Our grand total is now 4446 images. The original ATG total is in sight! Move swiftly, my students: let's crush that record!

    Draw a pony as a filly or colt/Draw a tiny pony. It's time to practice proportions and scale, and be downright adorable while we do it! Physicians will be on hand to treat any heart attacks that may occur.

    As for today, it's Hilltop Zone, Act 1. I was very impressed with the creativity in today's gallery. There's a couple of stock jokes, sure, but mostly you guys knocked it out of the park one after the other. I laughed, I smiled, I shed a single tear. How about tonight we make a game out of guessing where each of those happened? Keep up the amazing work, everyone. You're doing phenomenal work.
