• Newbie Artist Training Grounds VIII: Day 19


    Sometimes things just work out in life, by some chance of fate we manage to pull through and escape what we think is certain doom. Today you guys had a chance to expand on the pictures you drew yesterday day or make your own original pieces. While not as popular as I had hoped you guys who had submitted something for today did a fantastic job!

    In total we managed 85 ponies which brings us up to 2791 ponies altogether. Nice work everyone! For today we're going to hit on a prompt I'm familiar with and I'm sure some of you are familiar with as well after doing more than two weeks of prompts. Today I'd like you guys to Draw an exhausted pony / Draw a pony out of gas.

    As usual you can find our submitter here.

    We also have a new Makeup Day submitter!

    Good luck everyone!

    1 A horse winning against all odds - RainbowDash1804

    That wasn't impossible afterall.


    3 ATG - 18 - VICTORY! - Crimson Winds

    Art image 3
    Rainbow Dash clutches victory once more.

    I tried a style more akin to the original. along with a different software! Photoshop definitely feels better than Corel Painter Essentials 5, but Corel is definitely easier to use. I feel like sticking to the old one's better but I like this style too.

    Also, please give me feedback on the shading! It looks kinda awkward in some parts IMO.

    4 A Miracle - Dusthiel

    5 The aftermath of the assassination on Spirit Life - Horceye

    Art image 5
    Spirit Life could defend herself, but she got some bad injuries.
    Here a list: -Left eye lost eyesight
    -numerous damages on the organs
    -magic poisoning (when you cast magic over your magic capacity)
    -in her blood was found toxic substances
    -some fractures at her ribcage
    -a deep cut wound in her left leg

    It is a miracle that she could survive that

    11 Witnessing The Miracle - OctaScratchRock

    Art image 11
    I'll let YOU decide what the miracle is. It could be Celestia flying overhead. It could be a solar eclipse. It could even be Need For Speed Underground 2 being re-released. Whatever the miracle is, this is the best ponies' reaction.

    12 Miracle - Drakin Kami

    Art image 12

    35 ATG 18 - A Horn Restored - PixelGrip94

    Art image 35
    While I'm glad they kept her horn broken by the end of the film, I was a bit surprised that they didn't fix it considering there's a legitimate explanation for how it could be done. Case in point: my sketch. If the Staff of Sacanas had the capabilities to fix Tempest's horn when it was powered by the magic of all four princesses, it would stand to reason that all four princesses could use their magic simultaneously to do the same without the staff. Unless the Staff, and by extension the princesses magic, was truly unable to fix her horn, but it was never attempted so we'll never know for sure unless the writers elaborate on it.

    In other news, it literally took me 20 minutes to think of an idea for this prompt and I almost decided to just skip it altogether. Yay for stubbornness.

    46 NATG 2018 Day 18 The Miracle - tallaferroxiv

    Art image 46
    I think most would have loved to see the reentry turn around, even after the fireball. To snatch Quick Star out of the peril and have the day be saved!

    But that wasn't why I drew the original comic 2 years ago. I'm sorry.


    48 Fight or Flight - banterlot

    Art image 48
    The pegasus on Scoots' flank was easily dealt with, as a left hind hoof to the muzzle sent him spiraling into the hooves of a waiting Wonderbolt. The griffon on the other side, however, was not so easily dealt with. At one point, he was close enough to grab for her hind leg, but missed, instead grabbing and shredding the wing of the wingsuit with his claws. Suddenly, as the ground drew ever closer, Scoots was no longer in control of her fall. Gripping the case of incriminating documents still tighter in her mouth, she did the only thing any pegasus could do in free fall. She flapped.

    (Check the dA post for the complete story--it was too long to submit here.)

    Art image 54
    Based on the Hearth's Warming Club episode, getting a griffin to be sincerely happy on a holiday is a miracle in itself. Plus, do all griffins keep all this potpourri of miscellanea?

    55 Starlight Flux 1 vs Sleeping Bag 0 - Starlight Flux

    Art image 55
    I thought I'll continue from yesterday's prompt and draw my OC finally putting away his sleeping bag, albeit using a big mallet, as it feels like a miracle when my sleeping bag finally manages to gets packed away.

    82 Personal Little Victories - Binky T.

    Art image 82
    Medibang crashed at least 15 times during the rough sketch. I had to settle with this, but that's just fine. My own little victories is that I'm beating ATG deadlines a little earlier again and getting a good night's sleep. I know it isn't a big deal, but for the nights I've stayed up late and strained myself It's a good sign that I'm getting better. At its worst, I was getting headaches and sleeping for much of the day. In turn I didn't get much work done for the prompt, stayed up late rushing, and the cycle goes on. So to my fellow artists who feel like every word they so for this has to be absolutely top quality no matter what, just remember to take care of yourself too.

    83 Then a Miracle Occurs... - B.J. Dazzle

    Art image 83
    Just as this entire plan seems completely hopeless, something MIRACULOUS happens: Derpy's good friend the Doctor interrupts Vinyl's concert with some new information that may finally provide some solutions to their delivery conundrum! Our heroes may still be able to claim VICTORY yet!

    Argh, was low on time today again. I've really gotta pick up the pace with these if I wanna finish this series strong!

    "Whether or not what we experienced was an according-to-Hoyle miracle is insignificant. What is significant is I felt the touch of Celestia. Celestia got involved." - Jewels Whinnyfield, probably.
