• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XI: Makeup Day 2


    My Little Pony Newbie Artist Training Grounds Author Calpain

    I know that feeling, Octavia. Nothing like getting ready for some big presentation and watching the clock slowly tick down till when you're supposed to present. An awful feeling I've managed to get a little better at, but the nerves still get to me. Hopefully the NATG, even with its deadline, hasn't been too stressful on you all. While the deadline is meant to challenge you I do try to be flexible so that it doesn't cause too much stress.

    Speaking of stress, I know you all have been stressed for energy after these 20 days so I really hope that today's Makeup Day will help recharge your batteries. As always with the Makeup Days, use today to relax, work on some things you missed or, if you have the energy, tackle one of our previous prompts again! You can find our prompts on the submitter and after the break!

    For today we managed to pull in 61 ponies which now brings us up to 1776 ponies in total! Nice work 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!

    12 Getting Over the Wall - Pi

    Art image 12
    It took me an entire afternoon just to get started on drawing this. Getting over the wall that blocks you from doing what you want can take a while, but it's worth it to take your time and climb it, and not smash your way through. Know yourself and your limits. Also, damn. I really messed up that cube's shape. I'll fix it... later...

    Art image 25
    It could be writer's block, it could be laziness, or it could be both. Either way, this is why I don't have a set schedule for posting my writing, lol

    26 Open Mic at the Root Cellar Kirin Cleanup - Lore

    Art image 26
    Lore and Tree adopted Scoo before Season 9 came out. She busses tables and stuff for the family business. Also, I bet Tree could wake up a hungover Kirin in a way that won't catch the stage on fire.

    27 No Time To Spare - EbbySharp

    Art image 33
    You get that point where there are so many demands you shut down and end up procrastinating on everything? Mac's hit overload so hard he's losing his disguise.

    39 Im not avoiding anything (sketch) - Sparkyler

    Art image 39

    Art image 46
    procrastinating... isn't that the only thing I'm good at

    47 Hay and Oats - SOENJAY

    Art image 47
    The 80s was a weird time for fashion man. In the music video, Hall is wearing a leopard print sport jacket and pants and Oates is wearing the most 80s tank top I've ever seen and zebra print slacks. I couldn't really emulate that here since it's black and white but just pretend that Oats' shirt is filled with cyan, pink, and sea green zig zags and random geometric shapes.

But at least I got off the next few days! So hopefully I can get some full pictures done like I want to! Twitter: @NoteWise1 Soudcloud:notewise

    58 Now and Then - SazerLite

    Art image 58
    Couldn't think of anything that very closely ties with today's prompt. So I just wanted to try something fancy with the time motif.
