• 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!

    Attention Discord Users:
    For those of you with Discord we are really pulling out all the stops this year as we have a channel on EqD's official Discord server called #artist-training-ground for you to hang out in with your fellow artists during the event. You can join our Discord server here.

  • How Did You Want Equestria Girls to End?


    Equestria Girls had a pretty long run if you compare it to pony itself. For a side series, they poured a significant amount of resources into it, with multiple movies, the Youtube series, and loads of shorts.

    Unfortunately, it never really got the same kind of "final episode" that Friendship is Magic recieved. A lot of people that were into it want some kind of closure.

    We still don't know if there will be an EG for G5 or not. Considering how successful it was, I wouldn't doubt it, at least later on. Until then, how would you put a proper ending on to Equestria Girls for G4? What kind of fade-to-black did the show deserve?

  • Ponies Around the World 2021! Get Those Ponies In!

    The world is slowly opening up as the various coronavirus vaccines do their work. We delayed this year's Ponies Around the World by a month to give it a bit more time, but I think it's safe to go ahead with it now that people are traveling again.

    If you already know how this all works, you can find the submission stuff below! For everyone else, what is Ponies Around the World? This is a yearly event where you take a picture of your favorite pony toy at a major location around the world. It could be a famous bridge, a city park you live, a beautiful mountain way out in the Alaskan wilderness, whatever is named on a map! For examples, check out this post here. You then send the picture to us and we include it in a few big galleries of amazing places with cartoon horses in front of them.

    As always, stay safe. If you aren't vaccinated, feel free to skip this event. We don't want anyone getting sick to take a silly picture. Anyway, continue below for rules!

  • 9+ The Top 10 Pony Videos of May 2021

    I dub May, the month of Athena. Because she is glorious. May our new horse queen guide us to G5 in a way that is more palpatable for those that prefer 2D.

    Get your top 10 videos below.

  • CMC Music: Acouste Wholenote - Time Will Tell [Pop Punk]

    Acouste's contribution to ASOS Biscuit is such an energetic and rocking song about the CMC and their adventures, and I see by the choice of cover art that we're free to imagine them having fun with Gabby and Babs as well! Are We There Yet? Time Will Tell!

  • My Little Pony Speedpaint Compilation #188

    Speedpaint time! This Octavia doesn't even use construction for the art. Very impressive!

    Get the pone speedpaint below!

  • Daybreaker Music: RedSpark - Daybreaker [Epic Orchestral]

    RedSpark impresses once again with such a large-scale composition that conveys character depth as well as the many layers of the concept told. Read the description on YouTube for more details, and all the parts of the story involving Daybreaker and how she feels, and experience how all that is expressed amazingly by the music! A short yet very grand piece, that is definitely epic and emotional!

  • A Celebration of Starlight - Hit and Run PMV

    Glimmy was evil. I liked when she was evil. I like good Glimmy too, but there was something special about evil Glim.

    We've got a PMV today dedicated to that. It's not overloaded with fancy effects and it's only a minute long, but it's a fun little romp anyway for anyone that wants to get all nostalgic about the current HIGHEST LEVEL UNICORN (according to that poll on the side at least)

    Go Glim below.
