• Newbie Artist Training Grounds III - Day 13

    Celestia had been waiting a good 700 years just for this moment. The best payoffs are the ones you set up and get to savor a while beforehand. But... ah, the curtains rise! All Equestria Daily's a stage, and blogponies merely players, and one Phoe in her time introduces many arts. Like, say, 297 thespian mares and stallions, with another 197 latecomers and catchups rounding out the herd tonight! The grand total now stands at... drum roll please... 5503 images! Bravo!

    And with the spotlights shining down, this marks the close of our first makeup gallery. Check out the results here! I hope it was helpful to you! Remember, if you've not participated up till now, there's no need to wait for the next one. Just dive right in and get started, it's better to do it now than just sit there waiting! Remember that if you have any confusions or comments or questions, I'm easy to reach at [email protected]. I've got a pretty good track record for responding quickly this year, ask around! Ah, but now...

    This royal throne of princesses, this sceptered isle, 
    This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
    This other Eden, demi-paradise,
    This fortress built by Artists for themselves
    Against infection and the hand of doubt,
    This happy breed of mares, this little world,
    This precious stone set in the silver sea,
    Which serves it in the office of a wall
    Or as a moat defensive to a house,
    Against the envy of less happier lands,
    This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this Gallery!

    Er... ahem. Sorry about that, I'm not sure what came over me. Well then, I have been rantier than usual, so let's not mince words and simply roll out the next theme! Today, Draw a pony transforming/Draw a pony in disguise! Submit all entries here by 11:59 PM, Pacific time on Wednesday, August  28. Also, don't be shy about submitting it a teensy bit late, we still take them for a few hours after before closing up shop. Exeunt, pursued by a bear.
