• Newbie Artist Training Grounds VIII: Day 30


    Today is the day everyone! The final prompt: number 30! It has been a long ride since we first started, I can barely believe that a whole month has passed since I first had you all drawing standing ponies. Time really does fly, doesn't it?

    No time for grand speeches and such tonight, that's what tomorrow is for when we post the final gallery. As for today you all blew the Makeup Day away by submitting 222 ponies to our final Makeup submitter, bringing us up to 4132 ponies in total. We made it past 4k everyone!

    As many of you already know, today's prompt is a long standing tradition. Much like how a pony standing is the first prompt of every ATG, this prompt always comes at the end: Draw a pony graduating / Draw a pony starting a new chapter in their life.

    As always guys our submitter is here.

    Good luck on today's final prompt!

    Check on after the break for today's gallery!

    1 Apple Scented Romance - SazerLite

    Art image 1
    Fun fact, that candle actually is apple ginger scented.

    2 Flutterbat's Revenge - Rav Aharon ben Yisrael

    Art image 2
    All I wanted was an apple, and nopony would give it to me, so leave me alone! Reference from "Scare Master."

    3 Gabe's Miricle - ZecoraTheZebra

    Art image 3
    It's bad... Just wanted to finish it.

    Art image 4

    6 Applehoof - Vivian Iolani

    Art image 6
    I didn't like this one so much. My proportions were a bit off, and the pose makes the mane look awkward, I think. And to top it off, I forgot to hit submit after filling everything out, so here's the makeup for that.

    7 ATG Day 20: Future Twilight - Delphina34

    Art image 7
    Draw a pony running late / Draw a pony out of time.

    Finally done with this. I like how the background came out, but my faces still need work.

    8 ATG Day 19: Soarindash Sleeping (Again!) - Delphina34

    Art image 8
    Draw an exhausted pony / Draw a pony out of gas.

    Seem to be drawing these two sleeping a lot lately. Maybe it's because i'm staying up half the night making these pictures.

    9 ATG Day 18: Young Celestia Raising the Sun - Delphina34

    Art image 9
    Draw a pony experiencing a miracle / Draw a pony snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.

    Celestia raising the sun for the first time.

    10 ATG Day 17 - Delphina34

    Art image 10
    Draw a pony on an impossible mission / Draw a pony with the deck stacked against them.

    They're playing poker, on a table made of clouds.

    Ugh, why are sitting ponies so hard? Their proportions look really weird.

    11 ATG Day 21: Twilight Studying Brain Surgery - Delphina34

    Art image 11
    Draw a pony discovering a new culture / Draw a pony with an open mind.

    Book says "Brain Surgery 101."

    The other thing she's levitating is one of those anatomical models with the plastic brain; where you can take it apart and learn the different sections of the brain. Even though it ended up looking more like a boot.

    I still need to work on proportions; her legs are too long and somehow the back ones ended up shorter than the front ones. She's a unicorn because I forgot to add her wings until this was nearly finished. Besides, when Twilight lived in the Golden Oak Library she was a unicorn.

    15 Sudden Snow Day - B.J. Dazzle

    Art image 15
    Intended for day 22: Draw a pony celebrating your favorite holiday / Draw a pony partying too hard

    Something strange occurs deeper in the pyramid... the temperature starts dropping dramatically, at an unusual rate even for an underground enclosure, and snow and ice starts to form everywhere! Clearly, there is only one logical reaction... celebrate Winter Wrap-Up in the middle of August! ...Or maybe Derpy and Lyra should stop their partying and actually focus on the situation at hoof.

    16 ATG Day 22: Soarindash Christmas Lights - Delphina34

    Art image 16
    Draw a pony celebrating your favorite holiday / Draw a pony partying too hard.

    I've had the idea for this for a while, and was planning to do it as a Christmas special. Oh well, I'll think of something else when Christmas rolls around.

    19 Too Much Cryptic Information - B.J. Dazzle

    Art image 19
    Made for Day 23: Draw a pony going to school / Draw a pony obtaining forbidden knowledge

    Uh oh, looks like Lyra may have gotten in over her head here! After analyzing a wall written with the same language she translated earlier, she may have acquired some KNOWLEDGE she probably shouldn't have, and something seems determined to take her to SCHOOL for it...

    Art image 34
    The timeless tale of a sea-pony who dreamed of the world above the water, and the ponies who lived and played and loved there...

    35 21 - Mind Wide Open - banterlot

    Art image 35
    It so happens I have a character named Open Mind...I'm not sure even she knows her own opinions anymore.

    If even her counterpart Free Speech is questioning something you said, you may want to rethink that statement.

    36 8, 24, 25 Just Draw Koishi Already - thattagen

    Art image 36
    I had been intending to draw Koishi since Day 8, but recently two more prompts in a row fit the character.
    In Love - Doing whatever comes to mind - Fairy Tale

    37 Chilling Encounter - B.J. Dazzle

    Art image 37
    With Lyra having separated herself from the rest of the group, the others contemplate just what else could be down here that could allow them to complete their mission. The cold brings a particular holiday to Sparkler's MIND, which gives Doctor a BRILLIANT IDEA regarding what they may be up against...

    38 2018 ATG VIII - Day 25 - Gramma - KirbyLiscious

    Art image 38
    The scene is made 100% better if you imagine Celestia yelling for justice within NMM's bowels. And we all know how great of a yeller she is~

    39 ATG Day 23: CMC Find Out How Foals Are Made - Delphina34

    Art image 39
    Draw a pony going to school / Draw a pony obtaining forbidden knowledge.

    I'm way behind on these now; but this was the funniest thing I could think of for "forbidden knowledge." I still need to work on faces at different angles.

    69 Cold Shoulder - B.J. Dazzle

    Art image 69
    Made for Day 25: Draw a ponified version of a fairy tale / Draw a legendary pony

    The group has reunited with Lyra, but she's a bit of a Lyracicle at the moment. Derpy proposes a FAIRY TALE solution to her current predicament, but they've got bigger things to worry about as the LEGENDARY creature responsible approaches...

    Art image 75
    Made for Day 26: Draw a pony pulling the wool over someone's eyes / Draw a pony deceiving another

    Things are looking dire as the numbers dwindle, but Doc's not worried; through his EYES, all he sees are two ponies so full of love that no mere windigo can stand up against them. Unless, of course, Derpy wants to DECEIVE him and push forward with a different plan to even the field...

    The other thing she's levitating is one of those anatomical models with the plastic brain; where you can take it apart and learn the different sections of the brain. Even though it ended up looking more like a boot.

    I still need to work on proportions; her legs are too long and somehow the back ones ended up shorter than the front ones. She's a unicorn because I forgot to add her wings until this was nearly finished. Besides, when Twilight lived in the Golden Oak Library she was a unicorn.

    86 22 - Great and Powerful Celebration - banterlot

    Art image 86
    Having no clear favorite holiday, I decided to have Starlight and Trixie celebrating Guy Fawkes Day with the traditional fireworks...and a hint of reenactment thrown in. This will certainly end well.

    87 Opposite Friendship - B.J. Dazzle

    Art image 87
    Made for Day 27: Draw a pony with nerves of steel / Draw a pony meeting a goal

    Derpy is a very caring and tolerant pony by nature. She loves being friendly and helping others, and tends not to discriminate against others, always trying to see things from other perspectives. To her, a lone windigo is not something to be feared, but just another creature, one she could possibly become friends with, but with the caveat that, biologically, it can't stand love and kindness and revels in spite and malice. Most would deem such circumstances as impossible for friendship to occur, but Derpy's not so quick to give up. STEELING HER NERVES, she is determined to complete her GOAL of MEETING this fascinating new individual on amicable terms... even if it means taking an approach that contradicts everything she knows.

    99 Last Holiday - EbonyCrystal1986

    Art image 99
    Even though Smooth Jazz had become diagnosed with dementia a few years prior, he and Ebony were closer than ever thanks to her stepping up and taking care of him. Sure he forgot certain things, but he didn't forget that the holidays were coming, so Ebony wanted to make this year his best one yet. The night before while he was asleep, she slipped his present under the tree and the next morning, they woke up like they did every year to open their gifts together. Ebony wanted her dad to open his present first before she opened any of hers, so he did. Inside the large gift was a brand new robe that was black to match his mane, tail and cutie mark along with several other items he loved or always used. Smooth couldn't believe his eyes as he tried on the robe seeing it was a perfect fit. He smiled giving his daughter a loving hug, which she happily returned. Ebony knew this was the best holiday she ever had, too. Knowing her dad was happy was the best gift she could receive.

    100 First Day of School - EbonyCrystal1986

    Art image 100
    The day had finally come for little Ebony to go to school and like most unicorns, she would be going to Princess Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns, or more specifically, magic kindergarten. She was still a blank flank filly, but she knew that somehow she would get her cutie mark for something she loved doing there. As all little ones are on their first day, she was both nervous and excited, especially once she saw the large building in the distance. After giving her parents one last hug and kiss goodbye, she headed inside, eager to get things started. Cedar Rose and Smooth Jazz both watched as she went inside the school, tears of joy falling from their eyes as they made their way back home together, so very proud of their little girl.

    And yeah, Ebony's mom is now named Cedar Rose! Big shoutout to Equestrian Exploration here on Equestria Daily for the inspiration! :3

    Sorry for re-submitting this one. I submitted a basic version earlier as I wasn't sure whether I had enough time to add to it. Now, I'm wondering just what the cut-off time is.

    I was thinking of the name 'Queen Polaris' of the Stellar Empire. What do you think?

    With the last Makeup Day today, might as well upload some pieces that I had done in my early days on Garry's Mod, but never had a chance to upload because I never had a topic in the Training Grounds that fit them.

    152 Prompt #29: Berry Punch Blending In - Bright Idea

    A redo of prompt #8 from last year's ATG: Draw a pony mingling / Draw a pony blending in


    154 No Tailgating!! - MorphiusX

    Art image 154
    Acharky seemed to be having a fun time saving our Earth from Oxide. So much so that I had to draw him his duel since 'Charky could complete the Adventure Campaign sometime this year... Bring the popcorn & pass the salt!

    155 Shipping With Toys - MorphiusX

    Art image 155
    Artist Training Grounds Prompt:
    Draw a pony in love / Draw a pony ship(ping)

    Aren't they just adorable? :3

    156 Blight Vandalizes My Signature - MorphiusX

    Art image 156
    Artist Training Grounds Prompt:
    Draw a villainous pony

    Thunder Blight is Lightning Bliss' Nega Brony who claims she's better than Blissy Wissy in every way. Ever since the Revenge of the Blight has been recently spurring about, she's on the loose & she even vandalized my signature by sapping nearly half of it with her magic, & or her tail.

    157 Twilight's Ascension - PsychicKid

    Art image 157
    For Prompt 1)

    First time drawing in 6 months, prior to that it was about 4-5 years. Used references shot from Twilight first unfolding her wings in MMC, one of my favorite moments of the series, and I wanted to show my love for that and Twilight's growth as a character.

    Also still getting used to using things such as circles for body/head shape placement

    158 Need Some Glue? - MorphiusX

    Art image 158
    Artist Training Grounds Prompt:
    Draw a pony doing something you like to do in real life / Draw a pony doing something they wouldn’t normally do*

    Specifically Alex is too empathetic to know what I'm feeling, since I like building model ships like what you see in Star Trek, unless anyone would want to clarify on a horse pun on such a franchise.

    *Alex Voicer is a unique earth pony who can read anyone's imaginations with her own Imaginary Magic unlike the typical earth pony.

    159 Gather Around, Gang! - MorphiusX

    Art image 159
    Artist Training Grounds Prompt:
    Draw a pony mingling

    If you've ever followed Mystery Brony Theater 4000 all the way through Season 4, you'd see that Whirl was the original "test subject" for Hasbro's executives who test on their subjects for feedback from My Little Pony episodes spanning from Generations 1 - 2.5 (Generation 3 is really Generation 2, contrary to popular belief) but the theater's internal mishaps caused Whirl psychological disorder, forcing her to escape into hiding.

    Whenever Season 5 arrives, pass the salt & butter the popcorn, gather around and watch a movie or episode that may risk your very life.

    160 My Forefathers of Harmony - MorphiusX

    Art image 160

    Art image 164
    Again there's a story to this, but to read it, you'll have to click the link... ^ ^;;;

    Wow, it's hard to believe that on September 10th, 2016, it'll be almost 2 years since I created Ebony Crystal, and all thanks to Equestria Daily's ATGs. She's become a part of me now and I have no regrets whatsoever. I've even met some great friends since I've been improving my art and I hope I can improve even further for many more years to come! :3

    Was Afraid to ink but went ahead and did. Messed up a bit on the bridge of the nose.
    Struggled a lot with relative size and limbs on this one.

    170 ATG Day 12: Pregnant Soarindash - Delphina34

    Art image 170
    Draw a pony family / Draw a pony leaving the nest.

    IDK, does this count as "family?" This is in the very early stages of starting a family. It's probably hard to tell with Soarin's wing in the way, but Dash is pregnant.

    179 Delivery Aftermath - B.J. Dazzle

    Art image 179
    Made for Day 29, the redraw prompt.

    The delivery now completed, Derpy wraps things up so she can get back home as soon AS POSSIBLE. The original trio now back on the road they ran down EARLIER, Derpy fills Lyra and Bon Bon in on what they missed while they busy being ice.

    I had a tough time figuring out how to integrate this one into the story. This isn't so much a "redraw" as it is a "throwback" to my second submission for the ATG this year. It's the same idea, just in the opposite direction, slowed down, with a more detailed background, and at night. And hopefully better-drawn ponies.

    Art image 185
    I feel like Rainbow's parents would take her birthday party waaaaaaaaaaaay too far.

    186 Necromancy & You - Bombom13

    Art image 186
    Twilight has found the part of the library she DEFINITELY shouldn't be messing with. That book was her plan to meet Starswirl before that sort of worked itself out.

    187 Hanging Around With Some New Friends - Bombom13

    Art image 187
    I feel like if there's anything that can be relied upon, it's that these ponies want to make more friends. Also, Despite Sylveon & Espeon's colors matching Rarity & Pinkie, I feel like personality wise, Espeon is the Rarity of the Eeveelutions.

    188 Pone d'Arc - Bombom13

    Art image 188
    I feel like Joan of Arc qualifies as a legendary heroin!
    Based on Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres' painting of Charles VII's coronation, I believe. It was a fun chance to have a go at armor.

    189 The Last Bonfire - Bombom13

    Art image 189
    I feel like finishing a Dark Souls game counts as achieving a goal. Admittedly haven't finished 3 yet, but working on it!
    If nothing else, it was a good chance to mess with lighting.

    190 A Pony Going to Face the End - Bombom13

    Art image 190
    Unfortunately, thanks to school starting back up, I ran out of time to do 26 or 29. I did these 6 submissions in the last 3 days. It was an interestingly different approach doing all the sketches, then the inking, then the colors. I have plans for 26 - Something something avengers reality stone fun. Until then, It's been great run y'all!

    Teresa Cereza: “Lima Cereza!! You slept with my husband!! what will people say!!�
    Lima Cereza: “Well, they can say whatever garbage they want!! you never did anything with him, anyway�

    For promp 26 I decided to draw a reference from Al Sur de Equus, an audio drama about an alternative world similar to Equestria, where some people go when they die.

    Art image 217
    Day 9-Draw a villainous pony

    I love to draw these two together. I can't help but to feel like Nogan serves as a right hand man to Doctor Caballeron. But yeah, due to issues I couldn't get the entire group together for Ahuizotl. Let alone about 17 more. But yeah, awesome pones here
