• Newbie Artist Training Grounds X: Day 6

    Now that is a pony I have not seen in a long time! Oftentimes since we use Spotlight so much I forget that she even has a brother. It's nice to see that this little prompt about family moments has brought him back into the, well, spotlight, heh.

    Tonight you all managed to fill my heart with love as well as make my stomach rumble as you shared your family ponies and your favorite foods. I hope you all learned a little bit about some of your fellow artists today as you all managed to draw 154 ponies today which brings us up to 839 ponies altogether. Keep up the pace guys, you're still doing great compared to previous years!

    For tonight's prompt we're going to be dipping again into how our ponies feel, touching on the more lighthearted part of emotions. That's why for tonight I'd like you all to Draw a pony crushing on another pony / Draw a pony with a secret admirer.

    As always our submitter can be found here!

    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!

    These are my responses to the 2020 prompts for the Equestria Daily annual Artist Training Grounds! There's supposed to be a "Newbie" to the front but I removed it just because. :P This prompt is for a Pony enjoying your favourite food, but I turned that into a pony enjoying their favourite food. Sunset continues her solo feature while talking about her early days in the human world.

    It has been a while since I've done an ATG entry (mainly becuase I completly missed last year), and it's been a while since I've drawn alot of pony so here I am again. I only took a brief look at the title this morning, so I missread the promt for being the charaters favoret food, not mine, and so during a quite moment at work, I doodled Nyx (from Past Sins by Penstroke) eating her favoret food.

    33 A family moment at the Beach - Daimando

    Art image 33
    This one took longer than usual. But I wound up enjoying every moment of it. For the Family Moment, I decided to draw Princess Celestia and her adopted daughters Wanda Young and Sunset Shimmer enjoying some time at the beach. Because why not? After all, even in this pandemic, we do want to make the best of things.

    Note: Because of how much I enjoyed this drawing, I will also submit this for Celestia Day.

    55 Top Ramen! - Joyous Tempo

    Art image 55
    Growing up, he existed off of cheap ramen noodles. One would assume he'd be sick of it, but that's not the case, not when there are so many fun things to combine with the noodles! Onions, eggs, veggies, spices, and perhaps... Maybe... Every once in a blue moon the occasional fish.

    64 Contact - MLT

    Art image 64
    Long before the current universe's birth, astral beings have been able to used the realm of dreams to their own ends. Through it they can occupy a place of rest or even interact with other occupants of the realm that they might otherwise be incapable in waking.

    In a universe where so much communication is hampered by distance, the dream realm can prove invaluable.

    Especially when it comes to emergencies...

    I can always take solace having Bright Mac and Pear Butter together with Granny, Big Mac, Applejack, and Apple Bloom in Garry's Mod as one, big, Apple family if they can't be together in the show.

    98 The Mascot Reunion - Binky T.

    Art image 98
    This was just something that came to this mind this morning while waking up. Apparently EQD had another mascot called Rocket Tier, and well... He hasn't been around in a bit (officially at least). I'd like to think that He's like Spotlight's younger brother, and after all these years he's grown up a bit. This is partially inspired by my dad and his younger brother who absolutely outgrew him as an adult. It felt like it would be a fun and sweet concept to work around with Spotlight and Rocket seeing as it's been around... 4 or 5 years from what I've seen since he was last used on the site.

    99 Rainbow Eats a Club Sandwich - dzamie

    Art image 99
    "Hey, Rainbow. Not having lunch with your other friends?"
    "What, you're still a cool chick to hang with. Besides, I really craved a club sandwich, and most of them get antsy around bacon."
    "See, introducing you to delicious food was all part of my decades-long plan to make you hang out with me more."
    "I'd be upset if I didn't love this so much. Do you know how hard it is to find meat around here?"
    "I'm a griffon."
    "...yeah, okay."

    106 Ordinary Chaos - Pone-Dancer

    Art image 106
    Twinkle Toes and his waifu Sugar Cookie have a not-so-ordinary family life. Razzle Dazzle is obsessed with plants and grew a literal jungle in their backyard (he's pictured here with an angry vine on his face). Rainbow Opal is training to become a knight and at the same time is able to pop out tons of creepy children (she's chasing the centipony foal). Star hops across galaxies with his friend Calamity (he's the one being chased). And their youngest, Seraphina, is off to who knows where!

    Twinkle Toes, Razzle Dazzle, and Rainbow Opal belong to me
    Star, Seraphina, and Sugar Cookie belong to MLPwolfiathewolfgirl

    119 A Special Friday Dinner - EbonyCrystal1986

    Art image 119
    (There's a bit more to this but you'll have to read the description in the link ^ ^;)
    Years before Smooth Jazz got sick, he was VERY active, always taking Ebony to new places between Canterlot and Ponyville while her mom was at work, and every Friday after he picked up Ebony from school, he would take them to their favorite restaurant for Hayburgers, fries and a chocolate shake, just to relax, tell stories about each other's week, and enjoy each other's company, and that was a special tradition that carried on well after she graduated.

    129 Stardust Remembers A New Word She Learned - TaichiKeaton

    Art image 129
    Belle had taken her little sister, Stardust, out for a treat at Manecotti's.
    While they chatted, Stardust told her about a new word her Uncle Tai taught her when they saw Prince Blueblood.
    "He said he was a- uhm... it started with an 'F'..."

    "Er, Stardust, maybe you shouldn't repeat what he-"

    With a flash of realization, Stardust leapt from her seat and sprang into the air. "Fop!" She cried with excitement. "He said that Prince Blueblood is a great big fop!"

    Belle could only double facehoof while fighting back a case of the giggles. Stardust was developing quite the clever vocabulary.

    141 Simpler Times - ItsJustShyr

    Art image 141
    This got very, very rushed. I struggled on it all day and ran out of time to get any further. So here's a minimalist-ish piece.

    I used to have some step-cousins stay at my house for a while. They brought some Xbox games with them. Before long, one of the cousins and i would wake up, hangout in the living room by ourselves, and play video games from morning 'til past midnight. We got to the point where we would beat Halo 4's story mode in a single day, go to bed, and then do it over again the next day We also played Black Ops 2 a lot (Mostly the Zombie Mode).
    They got me used to playing FPS games. Before then I couldn't even handle a hunting game!

    Those were good times.
