• Newbie Artist Training Grounds Starts in One Week!

    Just wanted to give everyone a heads up in case they missed the first announcement, but we are now one week away from the start of the Tenth Newbie Artist Training Grounds! Starting June 1st we'll have a month's worth of prompts for those of you who want to take a stab at drawing pony or just need some practice whether you've been drawing for a year or ten.

    For those of you who have never participated in our NATG 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 NATG 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 couple weeks or so to prepare and make time for it, so get hyped, get those pencils or drawing pads ready and I'll see you all then.
