So our first day is finally at a close and I'm already impressed by the range of material we have gotten! From simply chilly ponies to literal chili ponies you guys went all out this first round! Not only that but our first day haul brought in a total of 396 ponies! Very well done my friends!
Before we get to the prompt of tonight's ATG, an answer to a question we got in our inbox: You do not need to be a newbie to join in the fun of the artist training grounds, anyone of any skill is welcome to join!
But this was just a warm-up of course as we dive into the next prompt for all of you to tackle: Draw a pony moving / Draw a pony in action. Now that are little equine friends have been brought into being, it's time to get them moving and stretch out those newly drawn limbs! You can find our submitter here when your work is complete and ready for sharing.
As for what you all created our first day, check on after the break for the full gallery! Apologies for some duplicates, I'm away right now and the uploader was a bit hard to manage on the go.
(Note: The submissions close at 11:59 PM each night, so you have some time to get late ones in, the post will add them.)
Best of luck to all of you on today's prompt!

We were asked to avoid posting this until the servers were stable, and have gotten to go ahead to send you all in. Pony Town is a simple top-down hang out spot where you can customize a pony and go blabber away with fellow MLP fans. Since it's first iteration a few weeks ago, it has had extensive customization additions.
Head on over here to check it out!

Watchmojo is absorbing the pony once again in their recent "Top 10 Pop Culture IPs That Would Make Awesome Theme Park Attractions" video. While nailing all those Youtube analytic buzzwords with the title, they go into detail on various IP's and how they would work out in a theme park setting. Pony took the #9 place.

Wow I wasn't expecting to see one of these. I thought the series was over or something. The Offiical My Little pony Youtube channel has released another Equestria Girls Mini short. Go get it below.
FANDERING. A thing many shows do, but few do well. How well does pony do it in your eyes? The results of that are below!
We've been around for a long time and have a vast array of likes and dislikes between the millions of pony fans out there. What are some of your least favorite controversial things the fandom does?
Get it on the side bar!
Since season one, we have seen Rainbow Dash's floating cloud mansion with it's sweeping staircases and giant roman pillars. Dashie lives in what many of us will only ever dream of calling home. The general consensus throughout the years was that cloud houses are super easy to build and customize. It is cloud based after all.
Her wealth seems to be more than just the house though. Over the last few seasons, Rainbow seems to have revealed a seemingly endless bank account. In last weekends episode, she literally buys out an entire town-wide stock of cookies for a simple prank. That's a lot of bits!
So, discussion time! How rich do you think Dash actually is? Did she get a massive endorsement via her new job as a Wonderbolt, or is her family footing the bill?
A writer from the Tampa Bay Times decided to swing by the Grand Brony Gala during it's event last weekend, and met a girl named Christy with Spinocerebellar Ataxia. Unfortunately, the disease is progressive, but each year she looks forward to the convention and talking ponies with everyone in attendance.
It's a really good, if sad, article if you have some time to read it. Hopefully we can keep giving her a great time at future events!
Thanks to Honcho for sending it.
Project SEAPonyCon has released a Chinese trailer for anyone over there looking to make the trip over to their event in Bangkok, Thailand. Head on down below of that is relevant to you!
