• Newbie Artist Training Grounds II: Day 7

    I love it when you smile, smile, smile. It fills my heart with sunshine all the while. Yes it brightens up my daaaaaaaaaayyyyyy~

    And it makes me happy just to see so many of you drawing such wonderful and diligent ponies, pearly whites flashing at the sun. When you look through tonight's gallery, with its 758 ponies, you will have a hard time not grinning wide enough to split your face (please see a doctor if your face splits). It's beautifully creative and, most exciting of all, look back over the other galleries and start taking note of names. We're already seeing marked improvement from those of you who have stuck with it so far. You're all doing amazingly! Go, go, go you! I'm so proud of you and all 6014 entries so far! Six days in, and you have exceeded the total for the original NATG. My shocked face is so shocked that if you saw it, you'd feel a jolt of electricity. Get it? Eh? Eh? ...Eh.

    To enter an submission for Day 7, simply follow this link and fill out the form. And by the way, if you guys have any comments, questions, or points of dialog you want to open with me about this, you can find me at phoe@equestriadaily.com Don't be afraid to drop me a line!

    Today's theme is a lot more esoteric. I'm interested to see what you'll do with it as we celebrate our very first week of drawing by opening up ourselves to some experimentation. Thusly, Draw a pony facing conflict/Draw a pony locked in "grizzly" combat. Please do note the quotation marks. I do not, not, not want to see an ocean of blood. Unless it's a landmark.

    Now then! Smiling ponies, beaming ponies, ponies on balls and ponies with balls and ponies ponies poines, swag swag swag. I want to gush forever, but alas there is no time. I'm kind of scrambling to squeak this one in under the deadline, so let me put it in the most simple words I can. This is Pinkie's Best Day Ever.
