• Newbie Artist Training Grounds IX: Day 26



    It's always nice to get some time outdoors when you can, especially when the weather is good, it's just a shame that the weather hasn't been better the past few weeks. Thankfully our ponies can enjoy with the awesome nature backgrounds you guys made! Hopefully it wasn't too hard of a challenge if you haven't had the chance to draw a background before. Keep practicing everyone!

    For today's prompt we brought in 67 ponies to bring our total up to 2629 ponies altogether. Keep it up everyone!

    Equestria may be mostly focused on our ever lovable mane six, but someone has to run the country. Whether it's the leader of a town, the leader of a small group or the leader of a nation, leadership has been present throughout the series. So for tonight's prompt let's celebrate the leaders of the Equestrian world by having you guys Draw a pony in control/Draw a pony leading.

    As always our submitter can be found 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!

  • Rainbow Factory Spiritual Successor Music: Koa - Broken Wings [Drumstep]

    For the occasion of their gig at TrotCon (that happened today), here's an amazing surprise from Mumble Etc, a spiritual successor to Rainbow Factory, made by Koa, General Mumble's fiancĂ©e! Her vocals are just so lovely in this, and I'm quite fond of the melodic aspect of the track and all those melodies happening in the background all throughout. The lyrics are well-thought and the thematic vibes are on point, which makes this a very nostalgic and emotional treat, and the perfect next installment in the trilogy, following Rainbow Factory and Awoken! Also I've heard stories from their gig today, like them playing More Than a Chicken and Koa dressing as a chicken for the occasion! FTW!! Also they played Strangely Obsessed sang by General Mumble live, the song that reflects our obsession with ponies! And of course, they played this new song Broken Wings! Wish I was there! I heard that the gig got recorded, so I'll definitely be on the lookout for that!

    Poor Dashie, I wonder if she lost a bet or something? It doesn't look like she wanted to dress that way on purpose.
