• Newbie Artist Training Grounds III - Day 6

    That way, even if you miss, you'll... wait a second, can I have a do over? Today's message of inspiration and diabetes brought to you by Scootaloo. Scootaloo: stays pony, even in milk. A word from our corporate sponsors aside, I'm happy to report that another 468 ponies made the choice to leap up and land upon a higher plane. Way to go, guys! You've brought our grand total up to 2791 images, which is already a number a lot of event coordinators can only dream of. Let that total carry you forward to even greater heights. We can do so much more! We will do so much more!

    Weekdays are difficult and not always conducive towards speed arting (which is totally a word, shut up firefox spellchecker. :< ), but that difficulty really makes it all the more important to keep pressing onward. The decision to say 'eh, not today' is one that snowballs upon itself pretty hardcore. If you're trying to really dig into the world of art, you'll thank yourself later for building the routine right now. In the meantime, if you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please always feel free to contact me at [email protected]. My door is always open.

    Our gallery today is full of many wonderfully creative entries, as always. Some sit on hilltops, some reach for the sky, some climb mountains, and one of you plopped Derpy down on top of an iconic League of Legends character. As always, there's value to be gained from considering new things to put into a piece (or what to take away, for that matter). And that is how we climb! So tell me, how's the weather up there?

    Today's prompt is a little challenge and a big task. But I dare say the task is proportional to your abilities. Am I a huge nutcase? Maybe a tiny bit! Today is a day of opposites. Today, Draw a tiny pony/Draw a giant pony! There are many interpretations to this theme. I challenge you as a group to find as many as you can. Submit all entries here by 11:59 PM, Pacific time on Wednesday, August 21. Good luck!
