• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XII: Day 22

    My Little Pony Newbie Artist Training Ground Author Calpain
    Artist: FlutterLove

    Another individual I love that also turns these NATG prompts into stories in FlutterLove! They have been with us for so many years now and I look forward to each new story they tell when this even comes rolling along.

    For today everyone we managed to bring in 56 ponies which now brings us up to 1662 ponies in total!

    We've been dealing with a fair number of adventurous, serious or sad prompts throughout the NATG so I figured as this is our last bit of prompts for the end, why not bring some more happiness into the mix? This prompt is sure to please the Party Pony herself as I ask you to Draw a pony having a blast / Draw a pony party.

    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!

    1 What a Journey! - EveryDayDashie

    Art image 1
    I still can't believe that Dashie has significantly improved and come to this far in the NATG marathon. She definitely deserves something rewarding! Since the prompt asks us to draw a pony returning home from a long journey, I thought it would be quite interesting if I draw Rainbow Dash returning "home" after running in the NATG marathon. It's such a phenomenal improvement and I'm very proud of what I can learn and acquire in this NATG marathon. There are still around a week to go, but I think we can start to see drawings with higher quality and more improvements as we get closer to the finish line. With that being said, this drawing took me 3 hours to finish and I'm very happy with the final result!

    Weston went through many adventures before… Ever since Weston’s parents have picked him up in Paradise Estate when they were looking for him, they’ve let him in curtain days to go to Paradise Estate and spend time with his new friends and once the time is over they come to picked him up… Weston Through out the times that he came along to adventures… He’d never talked about his adventures to his parents… That is until his mother curiously asked him about his Adventures with his friends… Weston never expected that his parents would ask him this question… So he went ahead and talked about it all (except the bad parts knowing his parents are really protective with their son (not in the hard way.)) Hopefully his parents wouldn’t find anything wrong about his adventures as he described it…

    30 Bring Me The Horizon - Friendship is Horses

    Art image 30
    I think the habit-forming aspect of this event is working. I really didn't care to draw today, but I sat down with a piece of paper just so I could say I gave it a shot, and then my hand roped my brain into making a mostly-finished sketch. Could use more detailing on the ship, but I'm calling it done for now. Advenchaaaaa on the high seas!

    35 On a Long Journeigh - Frith

    Art image 35
    I got my wires crossed on this one. A long (LP) Journeigh is involved. She could be returning. It's definitely a trippy adventure. To quote Road to Eldorado, both. Both is good.

    Art image 37
    Tony and Inkjet are taking an adventure! Through the jungle! Tony is having a great time. Inkjet...not so much XD Tembo means elephant in Swahili (according to Google) Inkjet belongs to SnowFall-13 Background photo by Matheus Natan
    38 Home Sweet Home - NiTEi

    Art image 38
    As enjoyable as an exciting trip or adventure is, there's really nothing better than relaxing after the trip back in your own home. Not sure what a "jounrey" is, but hopefully my misreading of it is acceptable.
    39 Argyle's Adventure - Ebony Crystal

    Art image 39
    After a recent re-watch of the movie, I figured Sunny's dad would have made quite a few treks of his own in order to make those maps in his workspace, and probably discovered a lot of hidden areas and new creatures along the way, marking all of them down in his journal as he went to document them. :3
