• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XI: Day 19


    The older we get the more memories we accumulate in this adventure called life. Some of them are good, some of them are bad, but let's just hope that the ones we do remember tend to be more on the positive side. Hopefully participating in the NATG will be a good memory for all of you!

    Now onto Day 19 everyone! Thanks for sharing your most precious memories with us all if you did end up sharing. As I mentioned above life is an adventure and while our ponies do have their slice of life moments, they also have plenty of chances for doing something epic! That's why for tonight I want you to give your creations a chance to by having you Draw a pony on an adventure / Draw a pony on a noble quest.

    For tonight we brought in 60 ponies which now brings us up to 1661 ponies in total!

    14 2021 NATG XI - Day 18 - Content - Kirbyliscious / Birdisjell

    Art image 14
    When I was younger I used to make little books and comics for all my friends to read, and I loooved doing it. I didn't really care so much about the quality, I was just focused on telling the stories I wanted to tell and sharing them with people, and making everyone, including myself, happy in the process. It was so fun! I got a little burned out after a couple years of doing it nonstop, haha, so I gave my characters their proper finale and that was that. I didn't do anything like it again. But I really, really miss telling stories for the heck of it, and making my characters' voices be heard, just because I love them and I thought they should be. Anywho, have babie Melonheart doing what I loved doing when I was little, and just all around having the time of her life and living it to the fullest, like I used to~ Also the title is a pun, because I can~ uwu

    The last years has been a real challenge and somebirdy special has seen me through it. They've filled me up emotionally so many days I don't know what I'd do without them.

    "They posses no worries, no fears, only an extreme dedication to fulfilling their want. The only thing keeping ponykind safe is the fact their wants simply involve startling ponies and hosting parties with an exaggerated fanfare." Dr. Lively Gleam C. Greencrest, on the Priestesses of St. Roseline during his travels to the West.

    Scootaloo's most cherished memory, how she saved her best friend when she was in great trouble and almost at the brink of losing her. There's one thing in the universe that Scootaloo will never allow, losing the company of her best friend Dinky Hooves.^^ <3 This picture depicts a scene from my ponyfic "Filly Friends Forever".

    You eat hay. I eat hay. Hay makes a pony's day that much brighter. (Yes but it's the eeeevil way in which she eats hay.) Tired. Chose a funny face, trying to finish quickly

    Nothing like reaching terminal velocity to make you feel alive, am I right Apple Bloom?

    Art image 50
    Kash has never felt cared about or cherished by anyone before. Agony didn't think she liked normal ponies that much. Yet...here they are. They don't just feel content and loved; they feel fully complete.

    For Guiding Light, "living life to the fullest" is not so much living fast and lively, but living well and ethically. Here she reflects on the Pillars of Old Equestria, wondering how their virtues contribute to the "good life"--and how she might improve on them.

    Art image 55
    For some reason, it's kinda cliché that mountain climbing is a key example of "living life to the fullest".

    56 Flight - phallen1

    Art image 56
    It's an obvious choice coming from me, but it's also genuine. I have spent maybe 10 minutes total flying a canopy, which is precisely nothing in the context of actual trained parachutists. But that time in the sky is like nothing else I have ever experienced, and I wouldn't give up those memories for anything.
