    Drew: "Here we are again. This house belonged to my grand parents. They used to call it Sun Home back then. But my family abandoned this place and nature slowly took it over. Now sunlight hardly reaches the windows and only at certain hour. But i like it this way... I feel like it's my home much more than... *sigh* I guess it will become home to you as well. At least until we find out who you are."

    20 NATG2017 - DAY29 - Derpy On The Rope - DarkDabula


    It must be very hard for a pony to climb a rope ! Luckily Derpy is a Pegasus and can fly.

    Hi guys !

    THE END IS NEAR !!! THOU SHALL PRAISE THE PONIES !!! Equestria Dailys Newbie Artist Ground this year is coming to an end.

    Today I had little time to create something big. So I drew good old Derpy struggling with a rope.

    Created with pen(s) and paper
    Color correction with GIMP


    22 Derpy goes South - ttkitty441


    Derpy found the southern birds.

    Death was never the same after he met Maud Pie.

    24 Reached the end - Ragmo


    She ventured far in within the last month. So far, that she almost fall down from the end of the world! luckily Mr. Pencil was there to stop her in time before she went over the edge. I'm wondering what's down the cliff.

    33 Eternal Dialectic - AaronMk


    The Dialectic does not simply end.

    41 End of Exile - Novaintellus


    I had plenty of time to reflect on my transgressions.
    My only regret is not exacting pain on my old enemies.
    However all is not lost, I have a new world to desecrate.

    42 Finally Back At Last - Equalizer (EQ)


    She's finally back home with her favorite teacher. <3 i="">

    51 The End - Nedemai


    I didn't technically reach the end, but fun none the less.

    52 Destination: Home - Darthalex70


    wasn't able to ink it

    53 Now Arriving in Ponyville - EbonyCrystal1986


    Since today's prompt called for either a pony reaching the end or a pony reaching their final destination, I figured I'd go with the second option here. (sorry if it's not my best work, I was in a bit of a hurry to get it done ^ ^;; ) :3

    Here we have Ebony having just arrived to the train station, eager to take her first steps into her new life in Ponyville, wondering what new adventures she'll have along the way. :3

    54 - Scarfanon



    55 Ends In A Sudden Stop - Frith


    Fluttershy, reaching the end (of Pinkie) much sooner than expected. Could this be the end already, so soon? It feels like a sudden stop, like with Fluttershy in the drawing. (Hopefully this time my picture doesn't mysteriously vanish from the gallery.) I've probably weathered this ATG better than previous ones since I didn't colour anything in, I only drew sketches on paper. It was all basic training and no wrestling with art software in an attempt to make it shine... across Equestria Daily. Well, it's been a blast! Thanks Calpain and Equestria Daily for keeping this Training Ground tradition going!

    56 Pony Reaches End - Ninjachristian


    This pony has reached the end! Now he wonders... What on earth is it doing in the middle of nowhere?



    59 Achieving the Dream - VanillaGhosties

    60 Your end sucks, can I have better one? - Mister Twister


    People say the journey is the most important, but if the end sucks donkey bits, then perhaps you were being used the entire time.

    61 - Still Waters


    Twilight gets hooked on a memoir written by Celestia, who's cut short a rather shocking entry by running out of pages in the book. Entirely by accident, and not at all in a way to shock or troll the reader, naturally. Yep.

    62 End of the Road - The Commandant


    "Wh... what...? That's it...? That's... the end?

    "Everything I did... this is it?"




    66 Game Note in the Final Destination - Franzyd


    Final Destination, no items, Fox (only)

    This has been an awesome 30 days drawing with all of you guys, even if my skills were probably one of the lowest (imo). I've certainly honed my skills a little bit.
    See you guys in the next ATG!

    (if we're getting one xd)


    68 The end - MDStw


    Yup,who want to reach the end of the vacation?


    70 NATG D-1 - Krash


    "Pinkie, that was a commercial break!"


    72 Down and Safe - phallen1


    Student skydiver Twilight having reached her final destination - the ground.

    75 See you next year my dear friends - Binky T.


    This is it. The end of ATG 2017 is near and I'm grateful for it. I played with new things and I didn't give up. I'm really glad for this because I graduated high school this year, but I'm heading back to further my studies in computer graphics. It all has taught me so much and gave me the motivation and practice for the upcoming year. All I had was just a pencil, and it was more than enough for a lot of the art I've made this month. After a lot of hard work and plenty of sleep deprived nights, Binky is finally getting a new cutie mark that truly represents them. In all honesty, this is why I rarely draw them anymore. They're my main character, but I never felt happy with the cutie mark because it didn't reflect who I was. This past month gave me time time to create new designs and ideas, and now, that time has arrived. I just wanna say thank you to the people at EQD for for supporting the artists and I this year. I hope to see y'all again next year friendos.

    Best Regards,
    Binky T.

    76 Flight to the Finish - Sigmath Bits

    77 ATG [Day 29] The Cliff - BluestFlames


    This is for the Artist Training Grounds On Equestria Daily!

    Today's prompt was to: Draw a pony reaching the end / Draw a pony reaching their final destination.

    So I drew Saroba reaching the edge of the cliff.


    79 [MLP:FiM] The Last Order - Optic Rainfall


    Must be tired now after all the hard work. Don't be mistaken, this isn't her last order, just for the day at least. She deserves a rest.
