• Luna Ate Celestia's Cake Again!
  • Newbie Artist Training Grounds X: Day 25


    While I love all the entries we get for the NATG I always do find the ones where the artists try their best to tie all the prompts together into some sort of narrative pretty fascinating. In a way it makes me feel like I'm making the choices in a Choose Your Own Adventure type story.

    Evening everyone! Here we are on Day 25 as we start to make the sprint towards the finish. This coming week we should be able to finish everything up and finish strong! Today we brought in 74 ponies which now brings us to 3179 ponies in total. Keep it up everyone!

    For today's prompt I was thinking of not only Equestria but the time of year. With a holiday coming up in the US and summer being the prime time for travel (at least when there isn't a pandemic going on) I figured maybe our ponies should check out some other places outside of Equestria. Today I'd like you to Draw a pony going to a foreign land / Draw a pony caught in a tourist trap.

    As always you can find the submitter 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 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!

    Attention Discord Users:

    For those of you with Discord we are really pulling out all the stops this year as we have a channel on EqD's official Discord server called #artist-training-ground for you to hang out in with your fellow artists during the event. You can join our Discord server here.

    12 Kirin Karen - Taurson

    Art image 12
    NATG 2020 Day24: todays prompt was to draw a standing citizen or a pony doing a good deed so who else would be a standing citizen besides a Kirin Karen... in the worst ways
    (this all came from me thinking my friend said Karen instead of Kirin)

    17 "Do a good turn Daily" - Sparkyler

    Art image 17
    As a Scout, we were taught to always be helpful to others and that was one of the many things I live by to this day is to always be kind and helpful towards other people, which was also a quality that I saw in Friendship is Magic. One of the many positive qualities I gave to Sparky here; he always wants to do good to others

    31 NATG 2020 - Day 24: A Pony Doing a Good Deed - tallaferroxiv

    Art image 31
    "As a Priestess of her Love, one must attend to the needs of those ponies in your care. It is known that yours is the duty to carry them into this world, officiate their sacred bonds and make sure of their health. But you are the ward of their full lives, as you will see them come, so you too must see them leave with as much reverence."

    - Expert from "Duties of the Red House: On keeping and tending to Ponykind", by Dolores Heartstrong 956 p.r.






    33 Happy Meal - Termyotter

    Art image 33
    I kind of like the idea of changelings not quite "getting" ponies all the time. Obviously a number lived among them but there were probably others that spent most/all of their time in the hive too.

    45 Zecora is Applejack's friend - Daimando

    Art image 45
    For this entry, I decided to continue my drawings that are meant to be heartwarming in these dark times. And why not bring in Filly Applejack and Filly Zecora for this moment? Here, I have Applejack comforting Zecora to remind her that they are both friends. And to really nail down the idea that they are friends, I had Applejack of all ponies rhyme.






    47 Sunbeam's PSA - Pone-Dancer

    Art image 47

    57 Fluttershy's Good Deed - NovatheShrouded

    Art image 57
    A good deed can be anything that helps, such as cleaning up the environment and recycling. Fluttershy has a very considerate and kind heart.

    Left some things unfilled of color on purpose, like the leaves and flowers.






    59 Stand Up Citizen - Frith

    Art image 59
    A "stand up citizen" sounds like an elected official doing a comedy routine. S8 E3 provided the reference for the stage and microphone.

    65 NATG X Day 24 Sketch - Skypause

    Art image 65
    I really tried to make the gryphon and zebra cute... and the changeling just looks bad... I don't know what's going on but I had a tough time of it today. I wanted to sketch a verity of creatures in a way I don't normally (with that cute chubby cheek thing people do...) and I'm rather frustrated because of it today... I'm SO BAD AT THIS compared to where I want to be... I even have trouble with their head shapes... ugh... Some days I feel like I'm making myself WORSE...

    Critique and drawing advice welcome.
