• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XII: Day 17


    My Little Pony Newbie Artist Training Grounds Author Calpain
    Artist: Zeccy-Zebra

    Now Twilight gets a taste of what 'Twilighting' is all about. At least Sunny is having a fantastic time meeting her idol!

    While today's prompt had some overlap with the day before, I hope you all enjoyed the chance for our ponies to meet up with different generations! MLP has a long history so taking some time to appreciate the different generations that have appeared throughout the years is a great tribute to the ponies that have come before FiM and those who are now coming after.

    For today's take, we managed to haul in 52 ponies which brings us up to 1270 ponies in total!

    With the NATG now in its 17th day, I figured for today's prompt we would try our hand at more emotion practice, one that might be more relatable than you might like. Keeping going with the NATG for the whole time is an endeavor and it can lead us feeling down about our artwork and abilities. That's why for tonight I want you all to Draw a pony feeling hopeless / Draw a pony at the end of thier rope.

    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, or 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!

    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!

    D'aww Dash and Firefly look so cute when they're together just like in this drawing. Best friends forever! Does this drawing seem familiar to you? The answer might be yes if you've being following my NATG journey since the beginning as this drawing looks very similar to my day 5 submission. The prompt for today is to draw ponies from different generations meeting each other and it turns out I did something similar back in day 5. As a result, I decided to go for the same drawing once again as long as it matches the prompt. It looks super adorable and I'm happy with the result once again!

    Art image 6
    A portal between two generations has opened. Because of the existence of technology, Fluttershy searches about the even more previous generations. However, G5 Posey was upset about Fluttershy because of how simple the past was. Hitch, a pony who is similar to Fluttershy, tries to calm Posey down.

    Art image 21
    I actually drew a background this time! I am still new to drawing G4 ponies (let alone any other generation) so I decided to go with the "exploring a new world" prompt, which gave my landscape skills some exercise. Also props if you get the title reference! As always, constructive criticism is encouraged and welcome!

    Trixie never seemed to use a lot of real magic in many of her acts. She was perhaps ahead of her time in that way. By the time they get to visit Sunny and company though magic is back and she's missed her window again, and she's not happy about that.

This took me 4 hours to do despite there being an interruption thanks to a storm coming through and me falling asleep during it, but hey, at least I did something today ^ ^
