• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XII: Day 19

    My Little Pony Newbie Artist Training Grounds Author Calpain

    Sometimes our dreams let us take a chance to do what we love or wish we could do when we are awake. They can be magical experiences or sometimes slip into deepest nightmares, it's a roll of the dice, but when you have a good dream it's a great way to start the day.

    With all of our dreaming ponies, we managed to bring in 55 ponies today which brings us to a total of 1380 ponies altogether! Keep it up, everyone!

    For today's prompt, another one I'm sure you're all familiar with, whether you're feeling it from the NATG or from something else in your life. Everyone gets run down every now and again and our ponies are no exception! For today I'd like you to try and Draw an exhausted pony / Draw a pony burning out.

    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:

    5 Sweet Musician Dreams - EveryDayDashie

    Art image 5
    Being a talented musician, Dash has always dreamed to perform for her fellow audience in a pony convention. Let's hope that her dream will come true. We've seen Rainbow playing the violin in my day 14 artwork and she's pretty good at it. In fact, I actually share the same dream as she does. I've always wanted more opportunities for me to perform and share my music with the brony fandom. Besides, I've always hoped that there will be a chance for me to go to a pony convention. I've been mostly enjoying my life as a brony on the Internet rather than in real life and I don't actually own a lot of MLP merch. But I'm still having high hopes about this, maybe someday I'll be able to fulfill my eternal dream... Dreams aside, I tried to work with the night sky background as well for this drawing. The result looks amazing and I'm happy with how it turns out!

    It never hurts to keep up your evil-fighting readiness, even in your daydreams! This was my first time drawing multiple ponies in one picture, even if the two in Emerald Pencil's (the resting pony's) dream are mini ponies. As always, constructive criticism is encouraged and appreciated!

    53 Little Daydreamer - Ebony Crystal

    Art image 53
    After little Ebony graduated Magic Kindergarten and got her cutie mark, she moved up with her friends into more advanced classes. One in particular being magic science, though on this day, she ended up letting her mind wander, thinking about all of the fun things she would do at recess among other things like she always did when that class was a bit boring. It wouldn't be long before the teacher got her attention and she'd have to get back to work, but until then, she was at peace with her own imagination.
