• Newbie Artist Training Grounds X: Day 16

    I always have been a huge fan of this prompt. Not only does it allow me to get to know you all a bit better, but I also get a chance to see a bunch of interesting games, book and movies I had never heard of before. I'm certainly going to have to check out some of the things you all have suggested when I have the time.

    Well gang, we are past the half-way point when it comes to prompts! Today we managed to bring in 119 ponies which brings us up to 2232 ponies in total now. You're all doing great! We're on the downhill side now my friends, let's finish strong!

    For tonight's prompt I wanted to do something a little different and possibly a bit more adventurous to get you out Equestria or at least the time period we find Equestria in as tonight I'd like you to Draw a pony back from the future / Draw a pony traveling through time.

    As usual the submitter is here!

    For our mobile friends trying to upload, try this:
    Once you have the image uploaded to Twitter, DeviantArt, wherever try this Touch and hold the image. Depending on what browser you’re using, select the image URL by tapping the links below: Chrome: Copy link address Safari: Copy

    Use that to URL in the compiler for your image. Hopefully that works!

    Max Image Resolution is 2000x2000! Resize your pictures to make sure they are the appropriate size, any image software should be able to help you.

    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 for the old prompt is up a few hours even after this post goes up with the new prompt so feel free to submit your submission to the previous day's 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!

    We're now at the halfway point, aren't we? My, my, how time flies. I return to the theme of Sunset Shimmer on a motorcycle, responding to Day 15's second prompt: Pony sharing their favourite thing with another. Sunset talks about why she loves riding her bike, while I draw her zooming about from various angles, practising my depiction of machines from various perspectives. It's also nice to draw Sunset's hair blowing in the wind.

    Recently rediscovered the fun of the puzzle game Fish Fillets. I hope replacing the characters in a screencapture is enough to count.
    The game is now open source, so if there are any interested modders...

    32 Smeiks Toxin book - Ragmo

    Art image 32
    Scene from the book 'Stadt der Träumenden Bücher' (The City of Dreaming Books) by Walter Moers. I dont know how good the translated versions are, but the german original is realy nice. It's not for everyone, but i love it.
    In the world of the book there is a mythical force - the Orm - which brings creativity to the writer - to the point where some authors can't handle it and succumb to the orm, forgetting the sleep, eat or drink, so focussed on their work. Writers touched by the Orm create perfect words in perfect sentences in perfect book.
    Books in generall have much power in this world. There are books that explode, start traps, living books, or toxic books - just reading them will poison you. Sadly our heroine found one of the toxic books - but don't worry its just a paralising toxin which wears of after a couple of hours.

    34 Primadonna's Amore - Soobel

    Art image 34
    What to ponify? What is my favorite books? Moomin of course!
    And Primadonna's horse (also known as seahorse or seafilly) are my favorite fantasy creature ever.

    36 Sunset Shimmer as Link from the Legend of Zelda - Daimando

    Art image 36
    Wow. This one took awhile. But I finally did it. I drew up Filly Sunset Shimmer from My Little Pony as Link from the Legend of Zelda. Much of the inspiration comes from the artwork from the original Legend of Zelda Video Game on the NES. I may do an expanded version of this artpiece in the future. Perhaps one with Wanda as Zelda and Coldnelius as Ganon.

    And yes, I know the original shield had a cross on it. I chose to use the Triforce as a nod to the latter game's shields.

    Art image 43
    A ponyfied version of the Equinox prime warframe, wich can change between day ,night and a split form and has different powers accordingly. (From the game "Warframe") So a fusion between celestia and luna seemed fitting.

    49 Pale Flower - PianoCube

    Art image 49
    Not exactly what the prompt asks for, but there's a game character and sharing involved, so that's good enough for me.

    I haven't drawn Fluttershy or anything from Hollow Knight before, so it took some time and effort even though I kept it simpler than some previous drawings.
    ...and I see first now that I forgot her eyelashes. Oh well, such things happens when I try to hurry.

    51 [SFM] Avatar: The Last Hippogriff (NATG 15) - red4567

    Art image 51
    Ocellus: Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Creatures attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them. But when the world needed her most, she vanished. A hundred years passed, and my friend (Gallus) and I discovered the new Avatar, an airbending hippogriff named Silverstream. And although her airbending skills are great, she has a lot to learn before she's ready to save anyone. But I believe Silverstream can save the world!

    60 Lord of the Rings - Pone-Dancer

    Art image 60
    I LOVE Lord of the Rings. Both the books and the movies (The Hobbit is an amazing book, but they screwed up the movie version of it so bad :-(). My mother has the entire boxed set of Lord of the Rings and we would watch a disc of it every weekend until it was all over.
    It's super good and I adore the strong theme of friendship/teamwork that it contains. So I decided to draw one of the most memorable quotes from the entire franchise ^.^ Frodo has their support 100%!

    66 There is no escape - Allonsbro

    Art image 66
    Hades, by Supergiant Games. A rogue-like dungeon crawler in which you play as Zagreus, the son of Hades and Persephone. Fight your way through the four regions of Hades to escape to the surface, accepting help from the Olympian gods to boost your skills and weapons. Make use of different weapons, each with different aspects and abilities. And if…no, WHEN you die, start over and use what you gain in the underworld to go farther on your next attempt.

    159 runs and I still love this game.

    83 Soupé - MalixCrash

    Art image 83
    I'll admit, this scene wasn't my first pick. I was originally gonna try something from Artemis Fowl or the W.A.R.P. Series, but I couldn't think of any scene good enough to attempt a recreation.
    I'm glad I went through on this idea though! I love how it turned out, Might come back and color it some time soon!

    I also have a twitter!

    84 Rusty's Restorations - SOENJAY

    Art image 84
    Rusty Ratchet is based off a real life friend of mine who was born about 40 years too late. He owns several vintage vehicles and restores them as a hobby. I (Mustang) am very into classic rock from the 70s and 80s and it's really cool to learn about classic cars from him.

    85 Good Morning, Mayor Ebony - EbonyCrystal1986

    Art image 85
    Isabelle smiled as she walked into the mayor's office, her clipboard and pen gripped in her magic as she went to the mayor's desk, seeing she was hard at work as usual. The unicorn looked up to her and asked, "Good Morning, Mayor Ebony. Is there anything I can help you with today?"

    Mayor Ebony smiled, looking up at her assistant, gently lifting her glasses back to her face as she usually did when she was concentrating on her work and nodded. "Actually, yes, there's a long list of things we need to take care of, as well as a few new projects the citizens want to make our town even better than it already is."

    Isabelle's eyes lit up at the prospect, eager to make her mayor happy. "Well then, we'd better get started!" She grinned as she got her pen at the ready as she wrote down all of the citizens' hopes and dreams, excited to make all of them come true.

    105 Clean Slate - Blaster M

    Art image 105
    After the destruction of Earth, Wind Riff found himself hopping planet to planet, searching for a new place to call home. It is here, on a Barren World, that he will construct a base. A home for the homeless ponies of the galaxy, where they are safe from danger. But first, he must build, for there is nothing here. No life, no monsters, no water. Just an endless expanse of sunbaked dirt, sand and rock. A clean slate by which he can terraform.

    If you heard the song Nomads before reading this, you already know the game.

    106 Champion's Gravetender & Gravetender Greatwolf - Sunlesswaves
