• Newbie Artist Training Grounds Start July 23rd!


    As Seth has teased in various posts we do indeed have an Artist Training Grounds event this month! Starting on July 23rd we will be tackling a month full of pony artwork, finishing just in time for school to begin in late August.

    For those of you who have never participated in our ATG events before it's basically an event where you can try your hooves out on creating art for the first time and improving over the course of 30 odd days.

    Artists who are veterans are more than welcome to join as well! Remember, you can never stop improving!

    As for what sort of artwork you can submit, you're welcome to submit digital art, ponies made on lined paper, paintings, elaborate origami ponies, chalk board ponies, animations, pixel art or even SFM ponies like we did last year.

    We're pretty open on what can be accepted just as long as it matches the theme in some way shape or form.

    Finally, all entries submitted for each theme day have to be a new creation of some sort. We won't be strictly policing this, but the way I see it is that if you're submitting old work you're not giving yourself a chance to improve so you're only hurting yourself.

    Once ATG arrives I'll have a more detailed post on how to submit, where to view, and what to expect out of the schedule. So until then, you guys have a few weeks to prepare and make time for it, so get hype, get those pencils or drawing pads ready and I'll see you all then.
