• Newbie Artist Training Grounds V: Day 5



    Dang guys, we're only on day five and you're bringing the feels! What else can we expect as we enter the last ten days of the ATG? You guys are doing great, keep it up!

    It's not only me watching your progress though, Phoe has been watching intently and has some words of encouragement for you all tonight:

    "So here we are, a third of the way to the end of our little journey. Even though I’m farther back on the sidelines than I’d like to be, it’s still been amazing watching you guys turn out art day after day. And you know, normally I’m the pony jumping up and down and hyping up the image totals we’ve accumulated, but this time there’s something else that’s caught my eye. Did you happen to notice the day-to-day submission totals? Because I’ve seen something incredible. Through the first four days, we’ve lost almost none of our group to attrition. By this point, I’m betting some of you are starting to feel the burn. It’s the middle of the week, you’ve got stuff going on, you’re tired and all sorts of other things.

    But I know you can do it. You can turn in an image every day for the rest of this event. And if you can do that, you can keep on doing it beyond the reach of my derpy little prompts. I’m sure by now if you’ve stayed active you’re noticing little upticks in the quality of your work, whether you’re just being brave enough to try new things or if you’re doing old ones faster, or even if you’ve just learned a bit about how noses work when you turn your snout off to the side like so. There's an old saying that goes 'fake it till you make it.' If you're not feeling like an artist quite yet, live like one anyway and watch the transformation happen. You might be surprised at how similar you are to the real thing. Remember, I'm always watching..."
    Onward to our prompt for today you guys! Hope you're in a stealthy mood tonight as we touch on Drawing a pony in disguise/Draw a pony faker. As always you have 24 hours to submit your completed piece to our submitter here. We got 223 entries today, bringing our total to 1043 entries so let's see if we can keep up the steam!

    We've gotten some confusion on how to submit to our submitter. In the space for the picture URL you want to put in the image URL link. To find this, upload your picture somewhere whether it be dA, Derpibooru, Imgur or wherever and right click on the image. In Chrome you want to click the 'Copy Image URL' button or something similar in other browsers. Input that URL and you should be good to go!

    We've got a tutorial below too if you're still having trouble!


    If a picture you made doesn't end up in the gallery tonight, please try resubmitting it. Sometimes things get eaten.


    You're a third of the way through guys, let's keep going! Get the new gallery after the break!
