• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XI: Day 16


    My Little Pony Newbie Artist Training Grounds Author Calpain

    I always have a lot of fun with this prompt. It's always great to see what you all are into, getting a sneak peek into what you all enjoy outside of art is a blast and I admit that I get exposed to a few new things when I see what you've all drawn. Thank you all very much for sharing your faves! I hope you managed to find some new things to check out yourself.

    Now that the NATG is half over I'm sure quite a few of you are feeling a little tired from all of the practice you have done over the past twoish weeks. I'm so proud of you all for hanging in there so far and I know you can make it to the end! For tonight though how about we get that feeling down on paper as for tonight I would like you to Draw a pony taking a breather / Draw a pony out of energy!

    As for tonight, we brought in a total of 69 ponies which brings us up to 1484 ponies in total! We are slowly inching our way towards 2k, 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!

    23 Dawnbreaker - TenebrisNoctus

    25 He'd taken the wrong turn - Ragmo

    Art image 25
    I guess Spyro won't be able to enjoy the beach this time either - well, i'm sure he'll find a relaxing spot in Equestira. Always liked Spyro - despite never having a PS. Now that i got to play Reignited Edition... not sure if it gets to be my most favourite game(collection) - but it's definitely up there.

    27 NATG XI Day 15: LOTR - AceBlazewing

    Art image 27
    Blazewing introduces Spike to the world of Middle-earth. I would've originally gone with The Hobbit, as that's one of my favorite books of all time, but I dunno how Spike would feel about a story where a dragon gets killed, however evil that dragon was.

Names, characters, organizations, locations and events are either imaginary or depicted in a fictionalized manner. The story and contents of this episode are not intended to and should not be construed in any way to condone, glorify or endorse the beliefs, ideologies, events, actions, persons or behavior of Starlight Glimmer or to trivialize her crimes, radical egalitarianism, stripping of cutie marks, and other crimes against friendship.

    I was given a copy of Clip Studio Paint, so this was me just awkwardly getting a feel for it.

    58 Sharing Music - SOENJAY

    Art image 58
    Mustang is sharing his favorite music with his friend *redacted* who is a re-imagining of Scoops Daily. This pone OC is based off of a dear IRL friend of mine, but I couldn't think of a proper name or cutie mark for them yet. I'm sure you'll see more of *redacted* soon enough, but for now I have to do some pondering. Also, Supertramp is literally amazing and if you haven't listened to the full album of "Breakfast in America" you should. Each and every song is great.

    59 Aughra - Frith

    Art image 59
    It's tempting to say guess who it is! But neigh, I'll just tell you. It's Aughra, the mystic keeper of the crystal shards in the Dark Crystal. The one who can pop her one good eye out of her head and hold it up to see around obstacles.

    64 A True, True "Sensation" - Optimistic Neighsayer

    Art image 64
    One of the great friendships in ragtime history--Joseph Lamb (left) plays his "Sensation" rag for Scott Joplin. I'm probably the only person in bronydom that would ever ponify this, but with all the rags I've written it shouldn't be a surprise.

    65 My Little Hero Academia - Tenshineko01

    Art image 65

    67 Little Mares - RiceChex
