• Newbie Artist Training Ground III - Day 5

    Yeah, we've all been there. But after Lyra figures out that table is way too high for that chair and her little pony body, I bet you'll see she gets the hang of that pencil and draws herself a masterpiece. Or at least a recognizable shape. Baby steps, Lyra, baby steps. Speaking of... not that, how about our submission rate? Even on a weekday, despite everything that's going on and all the rush of upcoming (even current!) school years, we're still clocking in at 482 building, fixing, and... uh... advantageously appendaged ponies. For those of you who are a little less historically inclined, I don't mind telling you that this is an unprecedented level of stability so far into Week 1. Attrition is a horrible and cruel mistress, but you are fighting her off most splendidly. We're up to 2323 images so far! Let's see how long we can keep this going!

    And in the spirit of keeping the momentum moving forward, now is a fantastic time to open myself up for questions or comments you might have. Send a line to [email protected] and I will do my best to help you out. Calpain is, of course, also helping out with this event but it's not my place to volunteer him for extra duties, so you will have to wait for his next turn (or look him up I guess) for that. Nyahaha! Gaze, gaze upon the evil mastermindiness that is...uh... me! Nyaha~!

    We're building us a gallery, yes indeed. I would sing a song about construction, but I only know the one and Ashleigh Ball pretty much took care of that one. So, uh... yeah. Just go back and pretend she was singing about galleries and everything is wonderful forever. Yay! Side note: I think every day so far has included at least one pony using 3D-Maneuver Gear. How long will this continue? I don't know, but let's find out. Together!

    We've been climbing high so far, and now it's time for us to peer out and try to gain some perspective. And for that, we must keep climbing up, up, up, and gaze upon the scenery! For today's theme, Draw a pony on a hilltop/Draw a pony on the rise. Also, somebody please take my exclamation marks away from me. Submit all entries here by 11:59 PM, Pacific time on Tuesday, August 20. Be sure to pick up your hiking gear before setting out!
