• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XII: Day 15

    My Little Pony Newbie Artist Training Grounds Author Calpain
    Artist: DarkDabula

    Doing something you love or doing something new that could become something new to love is exciting and full of adventure! I hope you've been feeling that sort of excitement and adventure as you go through the NATG, whether you're a brand new artist this year or a veteran just trying to hone their skills.

    For today we managed to bring in 58 ponies which brings us up to a total of 1161 ponies altogether! Nicely done everyone!

    As for today's prompt, since we are halfway through the NATG, it's time to bring back a classic we have every year. As pony has leaked into all sorts of different media over the years, it's fun to see what we can come up with when combining ponies with other worlds. So for tonight the prompt is Draw a ponified version of your favorite book, game, ect / Draw a scene you'd have loved to see in the show.

    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!

    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.

    Check on after the break for today's gallery!

    2 NATG XII Day 14: Make It a Show of Yours - EveryDayDashie

    "If you have a talent, show it to the world, and make it a show of yours." Playing the violin is what I love to do, and forever will be. I've been playing the violin for over a decade and it's certainly something I love and care at the same time, so I decided to draw Rainbow Dash playing the violin for this prompt. This drawing took me 5 hours to finish and I hope you enjoy this drawing just like how I'm always proud of what I could draw for every prompt.

    Here we have Ebony hanging out with a new friend, Shadowfire, after getting to know each other better, he wanted to show her his favorite hobby, besides inventing, his RC model collection. Intrigued, she wanted to learn how to drive one herself, but eventually learned that it's a lot harder than it looks with hooves. How her friend did it so expertly, even managing to perform tricks with his vehicle, she'll never really know, but she was determined to figure it out!
