• Newbie Artist Training Grounds: Day 22

    Twilight Doesn't Quite Get It Edition. Also, I love pointless capitalization. And pointed capitalization. Oh Celestia I'm so tired. That actually sounded funny to me. Ahahehe... eh. Today also doubles as wishful thinking night because it's the middle of June and I am tremendously hot and haven't gone swimming in... gosh, how long has it been? Years, I think. But these 167 splishy splashy little ponies are making me feel very cool and relaxed. Cool enough to celebrate our total rising all the way to 4,218 in total! *party favors!*

    Well, before I pass out let's get this part out of the way. Submission guidelines are here. If there's something else I can help you with, talk to me at [email protected]. Rain or shine, your Blog Princess is always there to help!

    The Theme of the Day

    Draw a pony building something. This night is dedicated to productivity. But what are these ponies building? Iono. Tables, houses, computer programs, giant robots, relationships, statues in my own glorious image, shrines to Lyra... you didn't hear that last one!

    Earlier this week I found myself talking to Sethisto and asking if he'd be willing to take over the duties of this for a night or two so I could catch up on sleep. You'll notice that hasn't happened. He agreed, of course, but every time I go to tell him that this next night is the one, I think about all of you. I mean, granted I did miss that one night when a freak storm knocked out the electricity to my town, but there are a surprising number of you who have never ever failed to submit a drawing to me every single night. And a whole bunch more beyond that who have been doing everything in your power to get in a drawing every night you can. And with all of that hard work and dedication directed at me, I'm supposed to take a break? Because I'm tired? Sorry, friends. I'll make it. I can do this. I will do this...
