• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XI: Day 2


    And we're off! With the first day of the NATG out of the way we are past the hardest part of any journey: taking that first step forward. Regardless of the task, getting started is the most daunting, whether it be through excuses, procrastination, fear, uncertainty, time or what have you. For those of you who have joined us so far for the first day, whether you're a veteran or a newcomer, I want to say great work and keep it up! For those still waiting for the right time to join, I hope you eventually take your first step with us on this journey.

    With our first day complete I have some shocking news for you all! Today we managed to bring in 139 ponies for today, kicking things off to a wonderful start!

    For our veterans, you can probably also guess what our second prompt is. While a standing pony is well and good, ponies really take on new life when you give them the gift of movement! It allows for new poses, new body language, and new adventures. That's why for tonight's prompt you will Draw a pony in motion/Draw a pony scrambling.

    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

    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.
    Use that URL in the compiler for your image. Hopefully that works!

    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!

    RedSpark is back in full force everypony! An with such a sweet composition about the ship that made many hearts melt, Discord x Celestia!

  • Let's Review: Friendship is Magic #98

  • Fanfiction: Amo Ergo Sum


     Author: DrakeyC
    Description: By the year 2238, two-thirds of humanity have become "ponies', living in an online virtual reality paradise where everything they could ask for is theirs to have at a moment's notice. It is a world of freedom, where all biological needs are eliminated and you can live forever doing whatever it is that pleases you.

    But for some, Equestria can seem less a paradise and more a prison, an artificial and manufactured place where nothing is real and everything is a simulated lie to make you feel comfortable. Perhaps, even the feelings of the mare sitting next to you holding your hoof. How could you ever be sure even your own feelings are truly yours if you're just a program stored on a server?

    Does living in Equestria mean Twilight Sparkle has to choose between her heart and her soul?
