• Newbie Artist Training Grounds IV - Day 8

    There are days when you're busy enough that you feel like running a country, and there are days when you just need to curl up and never take off your pony slippers. Living the dream, Celly, living the dream. But you guys certainly weren't taking any breaks today. Whether motivated by prizes or not, you've blitzed my poor submitter with so many entries I can barely count them all. Fortunately I have machines to do that for me. And they tell me today's total clocks in at a stupefying 866 ponies relaxing, chilling, and otherwise hanging out. These ponies fuse with our previous totals to form Volt-- erm... well, 4367 images! It's breathtaking, honestly.

    Today we come full circle, as Toywiz has once again opened up its coffers and offered up some super cool prizes. Today we're offering up some mystery minis and the metallic Pinkie Pie and Twilight Funko figurines, basically everything pictured above. To have so much to give to a little art event like this one is just amazing, and we're beyond grateful to Toywiz for their exceptional generosity. Tis the season and all, but still. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    Our Day 6 winner clocks in at #429 with a super cool Starswirl the Bearded facing off against some ancient foes. Congratulations to the artist, Nightshadow154! We'll be in touch shortly to arrange shipping details.

    We're getting pretty solidly into December at this point, huh? When I go outside, the houses around mine are starting to put lights up. The air is crisp, the leaves are all gone, and the spirit of winter festivities is settling in nicely. So how about we get in on the fun? Tonight, Draw a pony caroling/Draw a pony spreading cheer.

    Submit all entries here by December 9 at 9 PM, Moutain Standard Time (GMT - 7). Remember to have fun with it! But for at least a few minutes, kick off your shoes, sit back and relax in this stunningly huge gallery of sleepy ponies:
