• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XII: Day 16

    My Little Pony Newbie Artist Training Grounds Author Calpain

    This is actually why I run the NATG, it's just to put you guys through my cheesy prompts. Excellent~

    Now that our ponies have had a chance to crossover with a wide variety of different movies, games, books and more, I hope you were able to stretch your creative muscles a bit by trying to make ponies fit within that setting. Some of our most popular fan pieces out there in the fandom have been crossovers like this, such as is the case with Fallout Equestria. If you work hard at it you can not only mesh the worlds together well, but truly make it something your own to have fun with!

    For tonight though we managed to bring in 57 ponies which now brings us up to 1218 ponies in total! Nice work everyone.

    With today's prompt, I'm giving you another chance at a crossover at sorts, but this one is within the realms of MLP itself! Considering the number of generations before FiM and that this NATG is the first to have G5 ponies around, I figured it might be nice to try and Draw different pony generations meeting each other / Draw a pony exploring a brand new world.

    As always you can find the submitter here.

    2 Scott Pilgrim VS. the World - EveryDayDashie

    Art image 2
    It looks like Scott is ready to enter the magical world of Equestria and begin the adventure once again by "turning 7 X's into 7 ticks". We're already halfway through the entire journey. To celebrate this milestone, I decided to draw Scott Pilgrim in the form of a pony, along with the calligraphy of his name on the top-left corner and various graphical elements seen in the film. I spent around 4 hours creating everything in this piece of artwork and I'm very proud of how it turns out.

    12 Megalomaniac Management - DoodleDonut

    Art image 12
    Maybe not this comic specifically...but I always thought a Starlight Glimmer / Diamond Tiara "sister" episode would have been interesting

    14 NATG XII Day 15: Gabby and Babs - Blazewing

    Art image 14
    Technically, we saw these two together in The Last Crusade, but as part of the crowd of ponies and creatures that the Cutie Mark Crusaders have helped and inspired over the course of the show. I felt it would've been nice to have some grand CMC gathering, and see Babs and Gabby meet properly as fellow Crusaders.

    21 Dead Phoenix Sketch - Termyotter

    Art image 21
    I love this sketch, and I like the idea that it could translate like this and the phoenix may not be dead in the end, so that the shopkeeper is actually right.

    24 Breezies Source - Lore / Docard

    Art image 24
    This was the purpose of the expedition that Fluttershy befriended Treehugger on. In my headcanon, Treehugger was trying to find the entrance portal several decades before FIM, but ended up going through a different portal by mistake, causing her to spend time in the strange land of California before finding her way home in Equestria. Upon re-appearing, she was rescued in the FIM period by Fluttershy, who was on an expedition to see the Breezies, too.

    41 The Great Escape - Ebony Crystal

    Art image 41
    Added a bit of a story to this one, but follow the link to see it! :3 I wanted to show some love for one of my new favorite games in the Pokemon franchise, Legends Arceus, so I did that for today's prompt. The fact that it's open world and the Pokemon can actually attack YOU if you're not careful was a huge breath of fresh air into the franchise, and the storyline was FANTASTIC! I can highly recommend it and I can't wait to see what Scarlet and Violet bring to the table for Gen 9! :3

    Art image 44
    Torque wasn't aware this was part of the job description when she signed up. Always have mechanics at the ready before opening your park! Roller Coaster Tycoon is always a blast, and I find myself coming back to it every so often, much like a select few other games. Favorites are hard.
    45 Lion King - Pone-Dancer

    Art image 45
    The lion king is my favorite!!! That movie was my childhood. And since griffons are literally half lion...well...it just sorta made sense. Enjoy the Mufasa death scene.

    51 Newbie Artist Training Grounds XII - Day 15: Wow! What's that?! - CMC_Scootaloo

    Art image 51
    The Newbie Artist Training Grounds are here again and I am finally participating! The event is halfway over, but I will draw something for as many of the remaining days as possible! The prompt for today, Day 15, is: Draw a ponified version of your favorite book, game, ect / Draw a scene you'd have loved to see in the show. Ponification is my forte and I have just watched the movies "The Fantastic Adventures of Unico" and "Unico in the Island of Magic" with my friend for a special, pony-related occasion, so this prompt came perfectly in time! Here is Candy Caramel Tooth drawn to look just like Unico! Why does she have a horn, even though she is an earth pony? That is a secret to be revealed on another day.

    This is my response to prompt 15, "Draw a scene you'd have loved to see in the show," depicting the moment "I wished to see but knew that I will never see."
    55 Day 15: Alucard - TaichiKeaton

    Art image 55
    Castlevania Symphony of the Night has to be one of my favorite games, and Alucard my favorite character. A ponifed version of this game would be so much fun to explore!
