• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XI: Day 15


    My Little Pony Newbie Artist Training Grounds Author Calpain

    Looks like it's my turn to break a rule! How could I pass up the opportunity? Now that I've gotten that bit of nefariousness out of my system, welcome everyone to the halfway point of the NATG! I've been so proud to see so many of you stick it out so far and now we're already racing towards the finish. I know you can all do it!

    While the point of the NATG is to get you all drawing art isn't the only goal. Art is a means of expressing yourself, showing us what you're feeling, what you like or just whatever creative spark makes you put pencil to paper. That's why for tonight we're bringing back an old favorite as a bit of a treat for you all so you can have a chance to let us all know a little bit about yourself! Tonight I'd like you to Draw a ponyfied version of your favorite book, game, ect / Draw a pony sharing their favorite thing with another pony!

    For tonight's collection we managed to bring in 73 ponies which puts us up to 1415 ponies now! Looking good everyone!

    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!

    If that doesn't work, you can Touch and Hold an image, open it in a new tab and the URL of that tab should be what you're looking for.

    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!

    21 Fly sober or get pulled over - Spellbound Canvas

    Art image 21
    The story is as follows After a girls night out with the rest mane 6 that involved alot of booze, Rainbow became so heavily drunk, that she could barely speak coherently. Twilight insisted that Rainbow sleeps at her library for the night, but Rainbow dash, too stubborn to take advice from an egghead, ignored her purple unicorn friend, and attempted to fly back to her cloud home. Her vision hazy, and balance nonexistent, She swirled left and right before crashing into a house and leaving a giant hole. Thinking she was home, Rainbow Dash began to raid the kitchen, trash up the place, terrorize the family that lived there by assaulting them and even started to repeatedly scream "shut up" at a crying foal, all while the parents looked on horror. Eventually the police were called in and at first tried to get Dash to leave to which she replied "no! kiss my flank!" and proceeded to puke rainbows on one of the officers before passing out.

    42 A Few Too Too Many Pinkie Pies - Termyotter

    Art image 42
    This is based on a specific episode I really liked "Too Many Pinkie Pies". So a couple changelings decided one day to come into town and do some light mischief. Scare a few ponies. Stir things up a little. They just picked the wrong day and the wrong pony to impersonate.... Pretty severe punishment for the level of crime. I'm sure Twilight knows where they are. She kinda was the last to see them. Probably only a few will get this one, but it amuses me at least.

    55 Lupin The Noodle - dzamie

    Art image 55
    I wonder what she's stealing. Even moreso, I wonder what sort of pony can reliably keep up with a draconequus! That Zany Gotcha is surely a force to be reckoned with...

    70 I need this more than You - Sparkyler

    Art image 70
    Dear Alister Star, I know we've had our differences in the past, so I wanted to say a few things. To start with, I still hate you. I need this precious technology more than you need it as a trophy. Maybe now you'll know how it feels to have something so precious taken away from you as you did to me; you took my company, my scientists, my livelihood, and my passion, and most importantly my pride. Now I'm taking it back, one piece at a time. Sincerely, Your worst nightmare.

    If anypony needed pants or a long dress, it would be a pony with a carrion beetle cutie mark. "And I found a place, it's dark and it's rotted. It's a cool, sweet kinda place where the coppers won't spot it. And I destroyed the map that I carefully dotted, however, everyday I'm dumping the body."
