• Artist Training Grounds: Mock War, Day 1 Sub-Gallery



    I'm trying my hardest to get up all of the entries I missed last night, but the 260 number I quoted you turned out to be somewhat less than accurate. See, that was just what my inbox was displaying under the tortured screams of a public wifi network struggling to cope with the rush of last minute submissions (which is common and I totally expected it, but not on this level). I was only off by, oh, you know... one hundred. Do you understand that means that Day 1 generated almost seven hundred submissions? That's insane! I love being surprised by this community, no matter how much it hurts.

    Now. I'm doing my best today, but I'm basically banging rocks together to create an internet connection, and I have other things I need to be doing this evening for my apartment.  The gallery you see beneath the page break contains 266 images, and that took every bit of data my phone plan is allowed to send (two days in and I'm tapped for the month. Sheez). If you are among the lost, I urge you to head over to the ATG Alumni DeviantART group, where they've put up a mini gallery for this event. It's not much, but at least it helps you share. I'm sorry that this has been such a mess; it's just been a perfect storm of problems. Once we get a new script, I think we'll hold a resubmit for Day 1. Sound fair?

    4. Oh wow, that's a lot of pony.

      Good work!

      ReplyDelete

      ReplyDelete
    9. Sounds like I'll get plenty of time to finish Day 2's drawing. Which is good because I decided to draw 4 ponies and a vehicle in it.

      Which now that the concept stage is over and I'm moving into the part where I actually draw the thing, I ask myself "Whyyyy did I decide to make the drawing so complicated!?"

      ReplyDelete
    10. Yay, number 88 is mine! Thank you so much for all your hard work Phoe! To everypony whose work wasn't posted yet, just hang in there!

      ReplyDelete

      ReplyDelete
    12. Yay mines in this time! 76

      Awesome art guys! Keep it up!

      ReplyDelete
    13. That sounds fair Phoe. I really appreciate the effort you put into this event! Good luck getting all the problems fixed.

      ReplyDelete
    14. Too much art to look at in one night lol. My heart goes out to the EQD crew. Just imagine what it'll be like when there's a thousand bronies joining in someday...

      ReplyDelete
    15. Poor Phoe. I feel so sad for you. Already maxed your phone's data plan for this. *hugs* :( We do really appreciate it though.

      And I agree, that is an insane number of entries so quickly. I mean... look at all these awesome images!

      I'm glad to see some Octavia's as well. Still absolutely in-love with number 249. Artist, step up so I can give you a hug too. lol <3

      Number 117 is quite adorable, awwww. That Flutternurse.

      ReplyDelete
    16. Oh course Phoe that sound fairs. Best of luck fixing all those little problems that have popped up.

      ReplyDelete
    17. Aghh damn I forgot to put my name I use nowadays is Cheesey Burger and not TheConsoleKing. Ah well

      ReplyDelete
    18. I think I like these, well done everypony.

      ReplyDelete
    19. I remember when the fandom was young and just any random person could do events like these... good times...

      Except we were surprised to even get 30 submissions instead of 700.

      ReplyDelete
    20. Yay! Number 77 is mine! Glad Fleur made it in. ^^

      Can't wait to see the other entries in he re-submit. :D

      ReplyDelete
    21. Hurrah, #125. I can only imagine the tedium Phoe went through to get all these up.

      ReplyDelete
    22. Ow, my eyes, from looking at so much art, all of which is pretty good I think.

      23-That expression made me lol, she does NOT want to be wearing that XD

      40, 153- ARM YOURSELF... WITH KNOWLEDGE!!!

      47-Futurama, Zapp Brannigan... nothing else to say here

      52-Flight suit with a Pegasus... WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT!

      59-NO! not again... ok it was kinda funny

      84-I Am IRON SWEETIE!

      175-Eeyup

      191-Homestar Runner reference FTW, I thought everyone forgot about that place.

      Cant wait for day two /)^3^(\

      ReplyDelete
    23. Will the rest pop up sooner or later?

      ReplyDelete
    24. Ah man that's so much art for just day one O.o That's not a bad thing, I'm really proud so many people joined.

      Yay, mine's in here :)! #210

      I swear Phoe, you are so nice it hurts. You're doing so much for us even when things come up. I hope things work out for you! *RD salute*

      ReplyDelete
    25. Whoa that's crazy, so much interest in the mock war has me considering drawing for it too. :D

      ReplyDelete
    26. I just sent mine to Phoe, hope it makes it!

      ReplyDelete
    27. Ah so very glad to see my entry in, I can rest easier now. Again much thanks Phoe!

      ReplyDelete
    28. It's okay Phoe...
      Whoa, so much... x_x

      ReplyDelete
    29. Poor Phoe... I'm sorry you have to deal with all this :( Thank you for all of your time.

      Kinda sad I didn't make the cut this time, but the resubmit gives me hope. Onward to more art!! :D

      ReplyDelete
    30. Can't comment on them all, but a few stuck out.

      Scoots in Knight Armor just looks really good, for some strange reason.

      I got a kick out of Kain pony (FFIV) and Samus pony.

      And of course, it appears even Equestrian guards have taken arrows to the knee.

      ReplyDelete
    31. 2) That symbol looks familiar. Is your talent Digital 3D Modeling, Aeon?

      38) I have a strong urge to sneak up behind Dusty and shout MEDIC!

      Cardboard is popular. Just like the Kitchen Utensils.

      168) I admit I laughed. Well that's one kind of uniform! Should still be good for battle too with that helmet. I know a bat can be a good weapon.

      191) Wait, that looks like a Homestar Runner reference.

      232) Provided she didn't loose all her powerups on arrival, I think we now have this war in the bag!

      Welcome new recruits! Also don't tell Derpy I was here. I should be in training right now.

      ReplyDelete
    32. Number 123) WOWOWOWowowowowooWOWOwoowowoOWWOWOOWOWowowowo that is so good. It is amazing.

      ReplyDelete
    33. Aw. I think mine barely missed making the sub-gallery.

      Well, at least I submitted it to the DA group!

      ReplyDelete
    34. Your poor data plan D: Thank you for everything you are doing! I hope you can get all the others up soon!
      Yay, I got in at 245.

      ReplyDelete
    35. Thats a load to choose from...
      (249) this one looks awesome (and also have one of my favorite ponys)

      ReplyDelete
    36. #180... manly tears were cried today.

      ReplyDelete
    37. 139 here. I'll just stay in this awkward not-too-bad/not-good-enough zone. Thoroughly unnoticed.

      ReplyDelete
    38. #191: You, sir, has won the internet. You definitely has. (Love Homestar Runner stuff!)

    42. Those ones with Twilight in book armor are friggin adorkable.

      I can totally see her trying that.

      ReplyDelete
    43. @Menti 'Twas said long ago that knowledge is power, though I will stick to my armour and royal ornaments.

      ReplyDelete
    44. Mine's 129! Awesome to see I made it in there. Thanks, Phoe! Sorry again for having to add to the spam in your email...

      ReplyDelete
    45. #38 So much win in this one! I can't stop laughing!

      ReplyDelete
    46. I love 165! I can totally see pinkie being a drill sergeant.

      ReplyDelete
    47. My Little Artist: Tablet Make A Huge Difference!

      ReplyDelete
    48. Oh god, I burst out laughing at the many make-shift armor images... such funny, clever ideas. The whole batch is great fun, and I look forward to more.

      That said, I pity poor Phoe. What's been accomplished so far is nothing short of miraculous. I don't think anyone will riot if the rest of this project is held off until a more manageable time to attempt this is found.

      ReplyDelete
    49. So much pony, so much talent, so much art!

      ReplyDelete
    50. AWW YEAH! i got #160 in this one... right aroound the middle...

      BTW doe anyone have a rough estimate as to when the day 2 challenge will be due...

      ReplyDelete
    51. Awesome! Mine's number 38! Glad to see it made it up :D

      ReplyDelete
    52. #36 is mine? Me gusta.

      Some of these are absolutely astonishing. o-o

      ReplyDelete
    53. Woah that's a lot of armored pony.

      I'm proud I fought against my disgust at my temporary ineptitude and submitted something (my first try was garbage), but I'm actually kinda glad that the event has been delayed, I need to figure out my new idea n stuff.

      ReplyDelete
    54. #34: Wohoo! Crysis and Ponies make for a great mix
      #59: Should've seen that coming miles away
      #99: THIS IS A TRAINING GROUND PIECE! THIS IS FRIGGIN GOOD!
      #109: That's sleek and awesome. Shading is good too
      #153: CUTE!
      #232: As long as it's not the Other M Pony we should be good.

      A little upset I saw no master chief in here considering you have both Prophet and Samus. Oh Well.

      ReplyDelete
    55. Woooo mine is in there this time (#152)!

      ReplyDelete
    56. Yayyy I'm number 6. And number 162 is AWESOME

      ReplyDelete
    57. I'm 14, probably should do something about that old name being used.

      Already have today's challenge finished, what system do I contribute in breaking tonight?

      ReplyDelete
    58. God, if only my scanner was working and I had my good computer back from IT with photoshop...

      I liked 191. JOIN THE HOMESTARMY!

      Also liked 214, and I'm not just saying that because I know who posted it... nope... -shifty eyes-

      Hmm... if I can't help directly in the war with art, I think I might be able to help all you ponies with getting the protection you need...

      ====
      *METAL guitar music starts… get it, metal?! … er, you will when you hear the song*

      -ahem-
      Ore my ore, smelting them together
      Blueblood's helm, melting out the earholes drip by drip,
      Making sure the metal’s not heavy
      It’s the perfect weight so he won’t trip
      Even though he’s kind of a jerk
      Holy cow I have a lot of work
      I’m welding Blueblood’s helm

      Plate by plate, now for the special ‘details’
      Gold neck line, that prissy fool is wasting all my jewels
      Won’t even wear it if it’s not sublime, even though I’m running out of time
      Can’t the girl just do it all herself? She’s capable and in perfect health
      It’s Rarity’s impractical armour

      Weapons and armour, swords for us to wield,
      Luna, nothing should harm her,
      With speed and power, (speaking) we need something for the farmers...

      Something light, perhaps much smaller,
      Spiked shoulder blades, helm like the crusades!
      Now I’m welding on her special crest,
      And the most important piece is for her chest,
      Even though she flies high in the sky,
      Rainbow probably won’t die,
      I’m welding Rainbow’s armour!

      Plate by plate, link by link
      Light chain mail, avoid chinks
      Ore by ore, lot’s at stake
      I hope this doesn’t break
      And that’s the art of the forge!

      Fun fact: I wrote this song months ago, and have about a dozen more.

      Another fun fact: Rarity is actually my favourite, I just thought the idea was lulzy.

    59. Some incredible designs! I'm loving some of the custom pony armor. There's such a broad range of talent on display here. So many styles and so much creativity... I love it!

    60. I derped when I submitted it in sideways! Aw, well, thanks for posting it, and everyone else for having such good talent.

    61. Man, I hope #213 gets colored!

      I am still amused by how many of these have nothing to do with armor or uniforms of any kind.

    62. Nice, again wish I could draw a pony but by the time I could submit what I wanted let alone something that even resembles a pony or what I had in mind it will be far past the deadline. Really like them all Great job artists. Number 38 pretty much sums up how I would feel for the first second being there after that I would, well lets just say I would be like the space core in space.

      Believe me I have a tablet and hate the thing.

    69. i know phoe is under a lot of pressure right now, and i don't blame him in any way for the grievous terribleness i am experiencing.
      i would just like to state for the record that i am NOT whining, i am complaining. if you want to hear whining...

      my submissions were 206 and 207, you may notice that they are quite low on the rung which is kind of a bummer considering sent them in fairly early, but that doesn't bother me. what bothers me is that it now looks like i copied elliot maxwell's piece. i didn't, and i started on this picture literally minutes after the prompt came out, so (and i know how petty this is) i was totally first on this one i think. it is also necessary to say that i really like maxwells piece too, and think it is very adorable and i hold no ill will because my heart is too full of ponies

      ok im done complaining... wait no im not, it has my name on it but not my title. i am a knight of the round stable and deserve to be addressed as such.

      now im done. and i can say how impressed i am with everpony else's work. so much talent considering this is supposed to be "training"
      what is even better is knowing that you can have the ugliest picture posted right next to the best one, and all of us bronies will support and encourage them both equally. i love you guys. i should really stop typing now and either get back to work or get my first sleep in over 48 hours. oh wait, i have coffee...

    71. Awesome stuff guys, keep it up! We're going to dominate this ATG! (And drown Phoe in entries :p )

    72. I'm irritated with myself because I emailed a submission, but I forgot to add a source or name with it.

      I'm number 3. *gasp*

      Though... there is an extra e in my name. Oh well.

      Great job everyone on the drawings!

    74. @Octavia I'm glad that Octavia likes my Octavia. She sure has a fun color pallet. You can also check her out in today's drawfriend - someone submitted her there as well. And to think, I just so happened to read your blog and learn of how you established her name this very afternoon. Hello!

    75. 234, I forgot Lyra's cutie mark. LIKE A BAWSS.

    76. Tis a shame mine didn't make it up there, oh well. I was probably a little late in sending it anyway.

    77. #200 here - somepony call for a medic? There are *WAY* too many pictures for me to comment on each individual one. This list consists of things that stood out to me in some distinct way, and does not represent a full list of every picture I like.

      19, 25, 38, 63, 92, 117, 135, 161, 173, 193, 205, 257) Medic Ponies FTW! We'll keep the rest of you sorry lot on your feet long enough to win this thing.

      6) British Grenadier? Awesome =D
      21) LOL! 40 Kilofun party shells ftw!
      24) Such a pretty pony to be dressed for war =(
      38) ""Sergeant Sparkler, muffin, could you. . ." I laughed out loud at that =D
      40, 206) Oh Twilight. . . although that probably *is* the best way to use those books.
      46) Love the style =D
      65) Too cute!
      71) Trying for that "Warpony" cutie mark now AB?
      84) While Sweetie the Space Marine is ready to get a "Kicking flank" mark.
      96) And Scootaloo is going for that elusive "Rainbow Dash's Cutie Mark" mark.
      100) I like the colors!
      109) Oh, man. Here's a pony who isn't messing around.
      123) That sword. MUST HAVE IT!
      126) YES! YESYESYES! Best pair of warriors ever, right here =D
      138) Nice presentation
      144) Soarin! Love his jacket.
      153) Studying right up until the last minute. Just remember that the Griffons aren't likely to follow the book.
      154) I lol'd at "Actually. . ."
      165) Luna's in it now
      182) Damn! Fluttershy pulls off a pretty convincing badass!
      209) Is Starfleet allowed to get involved in something like this?
      210) I've seen what that tail can do with just a rope. I pity anyone who gets on the wrong side of it *now*
      226) Love the colors!
      245) Close. So close.
      251) Night Guard. Nice =D

      Great job everypony! Keep up the good work =D

    79. This is awesome!

    80. Yay! my pic barely got into this gallery (it's the last one)! thanks for all your hard work Phoe!!! good luck getting your apartment all set up :D

    81. oh sweet celestia! i just realized. this isn't a mock war. its not even fiction. equestria daily is preparing us for actual war!

      i'm prepared though. got my pony sword ready and everything.

    82. *sigh*
      that 59
      at least it's a correct application of the joke, it might still be funny if everybody used it correctly

    83. 40) Just make sure they're all copies of War and Peace, Twilight.

      ReplyDelete
    84. Okay for all the silly and serious ponies alike here's some facts to put your minds at ease:
      "getting in" is intended to have been for all of you, but Phoe clearly did not have the means, so don't be discouraged. not making it in simply meant her phone couldn't manage any more.
      Secondly and perhaps most importantly, these are not ranked by skill nor time submitted. They are in alphabetical order.
      And finally, you're all doing a wonderful job! it's so great to see so many new and/or seasoned fellow students of the pony arts turning out for this event! Love and tolerance y'all, I look forward to seeing what else we do.

      ReplyDelete
    85. dangit guys. this is exactly what i was afraid of. everypony is looking at number 40. (which is adorable)
      but i did it first and i worked really hard on it.
      i'm not petty enough to say my idea was stolen because i know it wasn't. but it is kinda spirit crushing when you see a simpler version of your work get praised while yours is ignored.

      so much awesome art, medic ponies REPRESENT!

    87. We take your staggering numbers as challenge! TO THE TRENCHES MY COMRADES! AND PREPARE MY SQUEAKY RUBBER MAUL!

    88. How on earth did I miss this new ATG? Is it okay if I join in the next round, or am I too late?

      ReplyDelete
    89. A Resubmit for day 1 eh? I'm up for it again!

      ReplyDelete
    90. Heh. I like the improvised armour. Seems quite a few artists had similar ideas to one I had but didn't do because I was worried about missing the deadline. Turns out I could have tried it, given I later found out that I'm 18 hours ahead of the server.

      Ah well, I'll get back to work on my Day 2 submission. Given poor Phoe's technical difficulties are postponing the deadline, I'm going to have time to make the scene look more complete.

      I suggest everyone take advantage of the extended deadline to make the best scenes they can and let's give Phoe something to look forward to when she gets the submissions system up and running again.

      ReplyDelete
    91. 700 SUBMISSIONS? O_O

      you poor things ;_;

      Go with God. ^_^

    92. #186 here, and you have no idea how often my screen name is misspelt xD

      ReplyDelete
    93. Quick question. I voted but never actually got the chance to comment saying "count me in" or anything, so If I make a pic of my pony ready for battle am I still in?

      ReplyDelete
    94. Woot woot! I made it! #171 is mine! I'm amazed at how many entries there are... they are all great too!

      ReplyDelete
    95. I just wanted to say great work everypony. This event makes me kind of nostalgic since I participated in the original ATG way back. Too bad everything didn't go as planned with the submissions though, but shit happens I guess. Onwards!

      ReplyDelete
    96. Almost 700 entries? Gods, we´re crazy people. o.o
      And fast artists as it seems. XD

      When will be Day 2 submit time? I wanna show what my Firehoof does for artillery training. :D

      ReplyDelete
    97. SWEET CELESTIA IM THERE!
      number 248!
      (I hate doing faces, so i drew the pony in that pose)
      the armor is based off of the war bear in Red Alert 3.
      mine sucks, ofc, but it was fun!
      anyway, what's going on with day 2?

    100. I suppose day 1 was over already, or is it still going?
      I still don't understand about amount of time given for work...

      ReplyDelete
    101. @Akirasip

      No idea. I found at the ATG deviant site that they already have entries for day 2 though we had no submit chance over here at EQD. :/
      And i dont own a deviant account. -_-

      But it looks like they´re still taking day 1 entries over there. They probably just won´t be shown here at the Updates of Phoe.

    102. @James Rye

      Well, thanks for reply anyway.
      Hope they will accept work, even if not for competition, then just for pure sharing.

      ReplyDelete
    103. #46: Aw yeah, Final Fantasy dragoons are way cool.

      #97: Is that cutie mark supposed to mean "average pony"?

      I see people with all levels of skill entered, some that aren't newbies at all (#99, looking straight at you). Great job, everyone.

      Heh, I signed mine with my real name instead of my nickname. That's what you get when you pony at 3 A.M.

      @James Rye
      Well, the Alumni group don't really have any timer associated with those galleries, as they were unofficial anyway until Phoe mentioned them here, so they won't be closed at any point.

      I have no idea whether Phoe will actually use their contents later.

      I just hope we'll be given a heads-up before day 2 deadline is set, and not "well, you've had enough time already", since my work still needs polishing. But maybe I'm needlessly worried, this is a fun event and not a class assignment.

      ReplyDelete
    104. AAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWW mines not on there!!!
      Meh, might as well link it here.

    105. StyxD:

      There will be a major heads up before the Day 2 deadline is set. Once it's announced we're back on schedule, you'll have 24 hours, just as if you used this time to sit on your butt and play video games.

      ReplyDelete
    106. It's cool to have extra days to draw extra large pieces, but 2 revealed assignments are rather boring.

      I'd spend current time to draw a battle scene rather than pony training. This is war daggnamit.

      So, if it is possible, maybe we can get day 3 assignment?
