• Newbie Artist Training Grounds IV - Day 3

    Poetry in motion! Condensing all of that potential, all of that energy and action into a single still shot is at once challenging and beautiful. And you, my lovely students, pulled it off with aplomb. There's so many entries tonight that I just absolutely adored, in so many wonderful styles and interpretations that it just blows my mind. Every year we do this, and every year I have to step back and just say, 'wow'. And now I'm going to make you say it, too. Tonight you rallied and met another prompt with incredible turnout, sending in 651 movers and shakers of money makers. Combing this total with yesterday's, that means our grand two day total is an astonishing 1360 ponies. In two days! I still remember when it took us a week. You're amazing, wonderful people.

    And now, prize time! As you can see above you, our prize for today comes from We Love Fine, who have kindly offered up one of their lovely messenger bags. I actually have one of these; they're really sharp looking and rugged enough for travel when carrying heavy things like an oversized gaming laptop.

    I'm also very happy to announce our Day 1 winner. Clocking in early at #36 with a lovely Applejack in the wind, our first winner is Creudence! Congratulations, we'll be in contact with you shortly! =D

    But for now, the show marches on. Winter fast approaches and for many of us (especially me), the air is chilly and the clouds are releasing white fluffy flakes on for us to admire. And since we're running the ATG during this time of year, why not get into the spirit? Let's learn a little bit about objects, environments, or clothing by doing this: Draw a pony in the snow/Draw a pony bundled up!

    As always, submit all entries here by December 4, 9 PM Mountain Standard Time (GMT -7). That's two hours behind Eastern time and an hour ahead of Pacific. If you're still confused, I've got a handy tool for you. Now, head below the break for a look at a gallery of ponies in action, ponies of action! Then get moving on your next prompt! I can't wait to see what you come up with now!
