• Newbie Artist Training Grounds: Day 6


    You know, it's getting harder and harder to find good, sketch-style images that are relevant to the day's gallery theme. I may need to start raiding your earlier submissions if I want to maintain this visual style. And I do! It's how you know it's me posting these and not Emergency-Sethisto. Today's been an interesting day. We've been having some major storms brewing overhead of Phoeville, and I found myself - without thinking about it or attempting to make a joke - looking up at the sky and asking if the pegasus ponies could reschedule. Damn it, I want Equestrian weather.

    Speaking of the little flying ponies, you guys sent in quite a lot of them! I'm counting 230 entrants in this year's Best Young Flier competition. Power outages last night prevented me from telling you my "two dollar banana" story like I promised. Find that and ponies, after the break! Remember to follow the submission guidelines when sending in tomorrow's pictures. I've gotten a couple of requests to point ponies in this direction again, and since I'm such a generous ruler, have some pony drawing guides!

    The Theme of the Day

    Draw a pony as a filly (or a colt). Ok class, it's time to work on your proportions! Don't forget, little foals have different body structures from fully grown (but still little) ponies. Now, I can think of at least two different ways to pun your way out of this assignment, but I'm sure there are more. Good luck finding them!


    Ok. So. Bananas. Once upon a time in a magical place called "Indianapolis", some friends and I were all sitting around in a fancy suite at The Hyatt, I think it was, staying up way too late and drinking way too much. This being the case, we were hungry and the city was pretty much closed down, leaving room service as our only recourse. Cracking open the menu we see a fine selection of moderately overpriced foods, but one item leaps out at us. "$2 - Whole Banana". Not five items up from this you could order a pizza for something like $15, so the idea of a single banana costing so much seemed impossible. It must be some sort of dessert, or a side dish we'd never heard of, or... something! Curiosity got the better of us. And it was just a banana. Not even a very good banana, although it was whole. We stared at it for what felt like hours before bursting into laughter that never really stopped. Two dollars. Whole banana. It was amazing, you'll have to trust me. Er... right, anyway. Pegasus Gallery, ready for takeoff!

    4. >Draw a pony as a filly (or a colt)

      Great..I have a piece that fits the request but I've already have it posted on the lastest drawfriend post.

      ReplyDelete
    5. @TopoCruz Me too! But getting off work at 10pm makes it kind of hard. There was so much more I wanted to do with mine.

    6. #218, barely was able to finish before the deadline.

      I really should give myself more time to work on these.

    7. Haha I think #155 is my favirite, but its hard to pick because they are all so good!

      Im #158 today. Im not to happy with how it turned out.

    8. Obviously I wasn't the only with with the "Musical Stave" idea.
      As a filly or colt? Hmmm..

      whoa.
      yeah.

      also yay for all of us who did a Luna Boom! :D

    12. Aha, draw a younger version of a pony; I've been waiting for this one! I've had an idea in mind for a while.

    13. As for the Blue Angels Picture the Vapor cone needs to be less angular.

    14. #221 here.

      Argh, I finished it about a minute before the deadline. If I could have finished sooner, I would have colored/shaded it much better. =(

    15. #109 here :D

      It's nice to see that my friend sent a drawing, after he said to me he wasn't going to participate this day
      And is awesome that his pic is next to mine!

      I like how #207 took the photo of that drawing

      ReplyDelete
    16. #12, I'm surprised it's so high up the list, I submitted about 2 hours later than usual. Also, if anyone's wondering where pinkie's tail is, she probably lost it somewhere on the way to supersonic speed.... or something.

      ReplyDelete
    17. Stick to the theme, ponies.

      ReplyDelete
    18. #186 here.

      Wish i had more time to wrok on these :/ have to crank out quick sketches at school and get them scanned and posted as soon as i get home. Doesn't leave much time to colour like i want too...

      ReplyDelete
    19. #132 ~yay! I'm glad only like 3 other people came up with a similar idea.

      I KNOW EXACTLY who to draw for the next one, it's gonna suck coloring it though.

      Can you really blame us? It's almost like we're being challenged to do so =D

      Oh man! I thought I missed the deadline. Then I refreshed and noticed the entry number change from 210 to 227. Checked to see my pic uploaded after all. That was almost heart attack inducing. I kind of finished that pic right as the clock hit 1:00 ^^;;

      Pic was originally just gonna be AJ with her hair down, but then I thought.
      "Meh, I could add wings."
      End result = 226 :D
      So glad again that it got uploaded after all >w<

      ReplyDelete
    22. 183 was me. Next time I'll try to do it earlier so I have time to color it. Tooooo close to the deadline!

    23. #90. The ones with the puns are the drawings that shine imo :P

      ReplyDelete
    25. 209. Finished just in time!

      Though there are SO many awesome ones this time. It's hard to keep track of them all!

      ReplyDelete
    26. #70 here. Glad to see others went with Luna as well!

      I do wish I'd had more time to work on this today - I know I could have at least cleaned it up a little. But, it was either submit it as-is or not do it at all, so...

      Still, though, tomorrow's theme sounds fun!

      ReplyDelete
    27. #24 here! and by extension I think I already covered tomorow's theme! hahaha (I'm just a lazy smartass, I know..)

      ReplyDelete
    28. #164 here. Finally decided to stop being lazy and reinstalling Flash, so (hopefully) no more low quality digital cam shots from me. Also, I got a tad lazy at the end and totally rushed on the clouds. I was also going to add some more "muffin" related stuff.

      Well, at least her "boom" effect is slightly muffin-shaped. I hope that counts.

      ReplyDelete
    29. Very good stuff! It's great to see so many people getting better and better, you are all heroes of arting. I'm surprised I got in at under 100, I think the 8 hour time difference helps xD
      Oh, and absolute respect for Professor Basil at 114. You sir, are the (wo?)man.

      ReplyDelete
    30. I just noticed I have like 15 views on these on DA but like 170 downloads... I think that is interesting.

      I love all the puns. And kudos to the Derpy drawings, that was my original idea but I cant draw muffins (oh the irony) and I wanted a different pony for every submission; also you guys are awesome with the visual puns, I wish I thought of that.

      ReplyDelete
    31. Whew, I was busy trying to get my *badword* scanner to work so I completely forgot about this, glad to see my image showed (Even though I'd rather not recycle an image not made specifically for this event - sorry for using your drawing Chad! P.S., remind me to give it to you lol)

      And I still have to draw a pony dressed as Trixie and eating an apple to make up for the days that I missed, I guess said pony will be a filly then.

      ANYWAYS, enough ranting and moaning, awesome submissions as always everyone.

      ReplyDelete
    32. #225 here. Big thanks to Phoe for helping me out on the tech end of this. :) I need to get my scanner working...

      The last panel is Dashie saying "Why couldn't you do that for me!"

    33. 199 Here. Accidentally forgot a nostral and made a male character a filly (Since corrected), but other than that not too bad of an entry.

    36. I'm sorry I didn't make it in time :(. Basicly I had the same idea about Luna's SonicNightBoom but anyway Lunar Apologist's (#70 you are awesome!) picture is much better than what I could do.

      Great work everypony, I hope I won't be late for day 6.

      ReplyDelete
    37. Aaaaand I think I managed to get everypony in. We got a new "check for repeats" button added to the compiler today, so that helped a ton. Just so long as my lesson plan doesn't explode in my face or fly away in these winds, I think we should be pretty well in the clear from here!

      Thanks so much for participating thus far, everypony. We're almost to the really exciting stuff; I can hardly wait.

      I'll get the eyes, my imagination, and other things right in time, though.

      Geeze I hate the way my 'sonic rainboom' looks.

      But I love all the Octavia ones! How unexpected and awesome!

    44. Ffffff I got mine in about 30 minutes ago. I think Phoe is probably asleep by now...

      Shouldn't have taken that stupid nap...

      ReplyDelete
    45. I emailed you mine, Phoe, I'm only like an hour and 15 minutes late... please post mine? :S

      I'll love you forever more than I already do if you do!

    46. @Thattagen
      after reading all of the earlier procrastinators' comments too, I feel not alone anymore!

      ...should still start working on these earlier though. My sleep schedule is sooo borked now...

      ReplyDelete
    47. It's weird, this drawing was the one that took me longer to make (over 5 hours) and i submitted at like 23:00 GMT+1 when i usual submit my stuff much earlier (about 16:00) and i'm just #62? Just how many people retired before Day 5?

      ReplyDelete
    48. @#128: How's this for a name? Lead Wing or Lead Weight?

      ReplyDelete
    49. #137, it is me.
      I definitely need to stick to pencil and paper, or get a tablet...
      And, yes it's carrot stems/leaves for wings!

      4 Carrot Tops, 2 Carrot-booms? (Sorry if I miscounted.) I thought that "cone=carrot" and "boom=leaves" was obvious! Too obvious?

      209) It's suh-wheat seeing somepony else use 'Sa-wheat!' (I don't want to take claim for it though!)

      ReplyDelete
    50. #66 today.(...poor fluttershy)

      @Phoe I know they do look like they hurt ^^;

      Didn't really like how my turn out but I figured out what I did wrong. But anyways good job everypony! Still great pictures I see. I heard some of you were going to stop drawing ponies from the other post. DON'T GIVE UP! You can do it if you put you mind to it! I believe in you!:D

      Well good luck everypon on today's theme. Beddy bye time for me...Nite♥ :3

    52. #150 here, started running out of coherency near the end of mine.

      ReplyDelete
    53. Wait, if the numbers depend on date of submission, they boy I got it quite earlier than I expected.

      ReplyDelete
    54. Lucky number 13 here.

      ...I like toying around with Rarity's hair and my fresh color inks. Does it show?

      Also, a subtle nod to yesterday's subject of fruits which I did not end up drawing.

      Really liked the few Octavia ones. Maybe I should draw her too.

    55. If the numbers are dependent on time of submission, then everypony was late yesterday, since I sent it before going to bed and got in the hundreds.

      Now, how to work Fillixie in with the CMC and Luna after Apple Bloom sticks a stick up Trixie's nose...

    56. I made it to #205, that's good.

      I was planning on having Pinkie fly with her jetpack but when I was working on the body, I forgot that and started to add Twilight in the scene.
      I do like the ones with the ponies having chicken and I like the one where fluttershy goes 4 winged angel.

      Blast, looks like my submission got eaten by the submission page or something. Or maybe nobody likes hoops. C'est la vie.

    58. I love all of Derpy's bubblebooms and Fluttershy's sonic whimpers, but 191 is my favorite. Empty10 is awesome as usual.

      THE FUCK?

      Care to explain why is this shit there? Like... really?

    62. Addendum to my previous post: in regards to today's theme.

      ...are you sure the site and its' denizens can take the cuteness proximity bomb that is hundreds of cutesy lil' fillies?

      At least, I have the feeling I can't even look towards the candy store when I pass by it next time after that... not without feeling queasy from sugar overload.

      That said, very much looking forward to 'em ;)

      ReplyDelete
    63. I can think of at least 4 ways of misinterpreting todays theme. I wonder if I can fit them all in one image while also including an ordinary filly as requested...

    66. #78 checking in.

      Cool! It looks like my drawing wins the! When should I expect my "the," Phoe? ;)

      Not completely pleased with how the sonic boom effect came out, but I love Fluttershy's reaction, so you win some and you loose some. Now to go learn how to draw a filly.

    67. 156 (and even 193 to a lesser degree)
      No...just...just no.
      I thought submissions were supposed to be CLEAN (as in no saucy/grimdark). Remove please.

      ReplyDelete
    68. While I don't really mind going slightly saucy(I do admit that they don't really have a place here though), I do mind the grimdark ideas. I would rather not have 'em in the trainin' grounds.

      I have nothing against people drawing the stuff - I just don't want to watch it. Please keep it to your own private art galleries and away from this kind of posts ;)

      I mean, I can just skim over them, so not that big a deal... but just asking.

    71. Wow, lotsa morbid ponies today, guess the frenzy of having wings brings out the bloodlust in everypony o.O I hate to be a party pooper but I hope it doesn't turn into a running thing with people trying to outdo each other on the disturbing factor. >.<

      Anyway my pic is 157! \^.^/ I love drawing wings :D

      Dear Princess Celestia,

      Today I learned that my comment box does not support quotation marks, and attempting to title contests for my students to win will only make me look like an idiot.

    73. AWww,,,

      so there were people that had my idea..

      I wish I had had time yesterday to actually draw it.

      confound you 70 and 72

      ReplyDelete
    74. #23 here :) Looks like #78 had the same idea! Flying Rapidash!... Poor Twilight.

      And yeah... Not sure I like all the bloody stuff either.

      (Totally have my idea for the new topic! Must go draw right now.)

      ReplyDelete
    75. Darn. Apparently being an hour late gets you... not posted. D:
      Or maybe I just got up earlier than Phoe did. Er nowait Phoe posted 24 minutes ago above me :C

      Well... anyone reading this, have it anyway! LINK!

      Check again. I was still checking e-mails and fiddling with things, and couldn't get it up until a minute ago. I'm really trying my hardest not to exclude anypony who makes an honest effort.

      It's just... you know, I'm only able to sleep from the hours of 4AM to 8AM anymore. I don't always move so quickly.

      ReplyDelete
    78. #33 here. Apparently sending your submission 9 and a half hours after the theme's been announced nets you a really early number. Who knew?

      Also, the grimdark made me Sadface.

    81. @Lunar Apologist Totally loving yours.

      #102 this time. Took me all day, and as you can see it's stitched together from seven different pages of sketches and redraws. =X It is only my third drawing pretty much ever though, so there you go. Hopefully someone'll get the reference.

      Also, I did submit two images via the submission form, but only the second one [#102] showed up. Bug / "check for repeats" button / script overwrites older submissions to limit them to only one?

      The other image if anyone's curious. Not really a joke or anything, but it was an excuse to draw my reaction the first time I saw that episode. =P

    83. 119 here. Really drew it more for my own catharsis than anything else. I actually drew something else entirely earlier in the day, but I never finished it and figured it was missing the point anyways.

      Looking at all the jets and such here, though, I think I really could have gotten away with it, but eh. Maybe I'll finish it some other day.

      ReplyDelete
    84. Silly power outages. I have one last night, too, which was why I didn't get to upload my submission! That's alright, though, I'll just have to submit extra hard today!

    94. @calamari
      It's not art. It's plainly a disturbing drawing. It's out of spirit of the show, of this blog, and of the very activity we're all participating in.
      It's the equivalent of walking through a series of childrens drawings and seeing a rule 34 of your favorite show crammed in the middle.
      Grimdark has no place in this, and I'm surprised that neither Seth nor Phoe have pulled either pic yet.

      It's not art... LOLLLLL you censorship freaks really crack me up. It's definitely art. It's just art you don't happen to like. I guess Cupcakes wasn't literature because you didn't like it either? Guess what, there are a lot of things out there that you probably won't see in sunday school, but that are valid expressions of humanity. Learn how to deal with it or please just go away.

      At the very basic definition of art, yeah, I could consider it art. Under circumstances of this being fan art for something that murder can appropriately relate too, I wouldn't have given it a second thought, but this is My Little Pony, we're talking about here.
      I don't care for censorship too often, but I certainly don't find images of little fillies (that represent children) murdering innocent characters, detaching limbs and attaching it to oneself and writing messages on a wall in that characters blood to be of good taste.
      I shouldn't have to subject myself to disturbing images in order to participate in this event or even appreciate the work of others. If some ponies feel the need to draw this stuff, fine, I don't honestly care, so long as I can avoid it, but I shouldn't have to "go away" or go out of my way to avoid this stuff when it's so much simpler just to not have it posted to begin with.

      I honestly love seeing gory stuff as much as cutesy stuff, but I guess I see what you mean, only because this is a pretty friendly site. If it's really bugging anypony that much, I don't see why we couldn't kindly suggest that they put a link to the picture and a warning like they do with the saucy images in the drawfriend posts. It's only fair, I think.

      Thanks, I did a search and found your entry. I see a log entry where it recorded that you clicked Preview, but I don't see one where you clicked Submit. My program records the log entry before it does anything else, so even if the Submit ultimately failed, the attempt should show up in my log. Is it possible that you didn't click Submit? After clicking submit and waiting for a few seconds while it processed, you should have seen a thumbnail of your entry, and text indicating that the submission was successful. Here is the link from your preview entry in the log, I like it!

    101. In case it matters to anypony, I drew mine as a result of having read Cupcakes. While reading that story, I desperately wanted Pinkie Pie to feel even a tiny bit of remorse for what she had done, but obviously it wouldn't have been as effective a story if the author had done that. However, I felt I could do that through art, so I tried it. She committed her vile acts and then tried out the wings and couldn't even fly (she is supposed to be laying on the ground, although maybe my lack of skill hid that?). She then realizes she killed her friend for nothing (although even if the wings worked, I wonder how long it would have satisfied her). She lays there ashamed and guilty, at least that's what I was attempting to convey. Did any of that come across in my work?
