• Newbie Artist Training Grounds II: Day 17

    Sometimes when you're out, a million little things will go wrong. Your reservations will be cancelled, you can't find your wallet, maybe everypony is on fire. But then none of it winds up mattering, because you look across the table and there in that one perfect moment you see 418 ponies staring straight back at you. And they hold up their calendars and their dates, and their cardboard cutouts of Akira Date, and you realize for the first time just how strange your relationship is. But it's ok, because I love you. There, I said it. And what I love most especially is what you're capable of. Which is exactly this: 11143 total images!

    To submit for Day 17, head here. Remember that our make-up gallery is still active, as well. Some of you are being silly and submitting entries to the make-up gallery that fit the currently active theme. Remember to check what the daily theme is before defaulting to the make-up submitter! And as always, feel free to drop me a line at [email protected]. I promise to do my best to keep up with you and answer as many questions as I can.

    Onto today's theme. We're dead in the middle of August and for many of you school is either getting back into the swing of things or just about to start. Maybe you've got a job on top of everything. But even though it's tough, I know you can perservere and Draw a pony under pressure/Draw a pony feeling the heat. Maybe it'd be a good idea to go swimming? Mmmm, pony bikinis.

    The gallery du jour is plenty hot itself, you might say. Well, you tell me, Mi Amore! Cadenza? Sure, let's roll with it, she's in there a ton. Overall this is a pretty shippy gallery, but plenty of you went the way of the supermarket or outlet mall, and a few more of you went a more... artsy direction. See what I'm talking about inside, because believe you me, it's well worth the time to check everything out. Eeeeheeee!
