• Newbie Artist Training Grounds IX: Makeup Day 3

    Remember this is not our last day! Prompt 30 is tomorrow, graduation day!

    Now that is a lot of prompts, wouldn't you agree? Congratulations to KirbyLiscious for once again tackling this prompt head on and getting every single prompt done. It's always amazing to see! Speaking of amazing, I am so pleased to see so many of you sticking with the NATG! Keep it up gang, just a couple more days.

    We managed to bring in a total of 59 ponies today which brings our grand total up to 2889 ponies. Well done!

    As for today's prompt everyone, it's time to start cleaning up as this year's NATG draws to a close. We have our Third and Final Makeup Day today so now is your chance to try and catch up with as many of the prompts you missed as possible. I'll leave a handy list for you all after the break!

    As usual our submitter is here.

    Animations do not animate when sent through the compiler! Include some text with your submitted animation that people should follow your links to the source to see the animation in full.

    Remember, our compiler is up a few hours even after this post goes up so feel free to submit your submission to our submitter!

    Also, if you are late submitting and the submitter is closed, don't just throw your pic into the next day's submitter. Wait for a Makeup Day to submit!

    My draconequussona Ruby Nights in a dessert town like in Star Wars and the town outside of Equestria in the 2017 My Little Pony Kluddtown where the anthromorphic cat Capper lives. I based this dessert town after Kluddtown from My Little Pony the movie 2017 and one of the towns on Luke Skywalkers home planet which I don’t know how to spell but I added futuristic buildings as well as hover Croft’s in the background and my Draconequussona is standing upright wearing clothing.

    Naturally, this doesn't mix up anything at all. I started with the "holding the line" joke and came up with something that could tangentially satisfy a whole bunch of the more "positive" prompts. Almost there! Keep it up, folks!

    List of previous prompts on the art page.

    20 Walking on two feet - ZoneSystem

    23 My Little Remix - Frith

    Art image 23
    Flurry Heart is mixing it up, dumping stuff into Twilight's magical pudding in plain sight! Sneaky little filly she is, she swapped places with a bag of flour so her mother wouldn't notice she'd teleported off, and it worked! And yet, when the pudding turned into The Blob, there was little doubt in anypony's mind that Flurry was to blame.

    28 Shaking It Up - HorizonsBound

    Art image 28
    NATG IX Day 29 Mix it up. Pound Cake is sitting, living on the edge, in danger, out of juice. Mrs. Cake is shaking it up and maybe participating in some everyday child endangerment.

    30 Love Titan - SazerLite

    I'm not surprised the show writers haven't really touched upon this aspect of her character since A Canterlot Wedding.

    32 Prompt Cram - EbbySharp

    Art image 32
    Yick. What matters is I got 19/28. XP

    33 Bakers - Allonsbro

    Art image 33
    I got this idea brainstorming one of the earlier days and had planned to draw it once the ATG was over. But the minute I saw the words 'mixing things up' in the prompt today, I said "OK, we're doing this!"

    Pokey and Pinkie's daughters love baking and are both quite adept at it.

    34 Baking with Pinkie Pie and Ebony - EbonyCrystal1986

    Art image 34
    Every now and again Ebony loves to try out her friends' different hobbies and have fun with them. This time Pinkie Pie invited the unicorn to bake with her in Sugarcube Corner. The pair worked all day baking lots of tasty treats including pies, cakes, cupcakes and of course Ebony's favorite treat, cookies(more specifically, the same applesauce chocolate chip cookies her mother made when she was a filly)! Sure, they got PRETTY messy in the process, but hey it was definitely worth it!

    Yeah once I read tonight's prompt, this was the first thing that came to mind. :3

    36 Fiesta Mixes Dessert Up - Pone-Dancer

    Art image 36
    Fiesta is mixing up a new delicious invention featuring Jello. Is it possible to whip Jello and make an icing out of it? Jello ice cream? He knows, but isn't telling XD

    38 Read Me a Story, Daddy - EbonyCrystal1986

    Art image 38
    Little Ebony wound up catching a nasty cold when she stayed outside in the rain too long and had to stay at home in bed to rest up before she could go back to school. Unfortunately, she was bored just staying in bed all day and after she had played with all of her favorite toys and was STILL bored, her daddy knew JUST the thing, having surprised her with the latest Daring Do book, both of them eagerly wanting to know what adventures she'd be going on next, and of course Ebony used her imagination as she usually did, making the story that much more fun for her as she rested in her bed, giggling as he did his best "bad guy voice" for her. Maybe being sick in bed wasn't so bad after all...

    I think it's clear which prompts are here, but if not, click on the link since it'd be too long to list here... ^ ^;
    Plus it's been a bit since I've drawn Smooth Jazz with little Ebony, and my dad often did that for me when I was little, too so this pic meant a lot :'3
