• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XII: Day 25

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

    That's one way of dealing with your past regrets, but I wonder if the Jat might be too cruel of an option, even for Nightmare Moon.

    Hello my friends! We've been dealing with apologizing and regretful ponies all day and I think they have become repentant enough to take a little break for now. Enough of a break that they can deal with just a little bit of mischief again.

    Before we get down to that though, I must report we brought in 48 ponies today which brings us to a total of 1812 ponies altogether!

    As for the mischief I was speaking of, not all the bad things in FiM were from villains, sometimes just a pony being a bit too loose with the truth was all that was needed to cause quite a bit of tension in the show. That's why for today I'd like you to try and Draw a pony stretching the truth / Draw a pony with a tall tale to tell.

    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!

    3 I'm So Sorry... - EveryDayDashie

    Art image 3
    Braggart, rude, stubborn, apathetic, disrespectful... These are things that ultimately lead to the destruction of our friendship. The only way to fix this is to admit our fault and rebuild our friendship again. So, would you forgive Dashie? When I realized that the prompt for today is to draw a pony facing a mistake from their past, I really couldn't think of any sinister things Rainbow Dash did before, so instead I went with a more personal idea of admitting our poor habits and attitudes in daily life. Sometimes we are very conscious of our recognitions and how well we perform on social media platforms while neglecting people around us. We should learn to understand other people's feelings from their perspectives while admitting our bad attitude in order to rebuild our friendship once again. With that being said, this drawing took around 3 hours to finish and I hope you enjoy this illustration!

    Art image 8
    Spike had been setting off traps upon himself when he wasn’t aware of it… For Weston, he had seen several times seen Spike getting trapped… After several times that he have seen, he become more aware of Spike falling it over again… So whenever Spike is almost to a point of him getting trapped he has to pull him back and warn him not to fall for it… (Sorry if I didn’t explain this correctly, because I was tired.)

    It seems the culprit, the Evil Dr. Hooves got caught! However he surrenders and asks for forgiveness when he got defeated. Will Sunny and rest of the Mane 5 be kind enough to give him a second chance?

    Aftermath of yesterdays submission. Oops, seems yesterday she pulled the lever in the wrong direction - she's trying to fix Caveman Pony up - don't worry he'll be fine, he's been through way worse before he got transported into our time :)
    16 "Forgiveness" - EmeraldPencil

    Art image 16
    This drawing is linked to yesterday's drawing, where I drew a colt trying to get at some cookies. He is now asking his mother for forgiveness for said act. It's always important to repent when we do wrong. No one is perfect, and we have all messed up at some point. As well as asking the person we have wronged for forgiveness, we must also remember to ask the One who can forgive us completely. As always, constructive criticism is encouraged and appreciated! (Also, this reminded me of a song by Matthew West called "Forgiveness." I have it in my head now XD)

    I always wonder about the changelings that managed to capture ponies for the hive after the reformation. How do they process the things they did. Yeah, they weren't calling the shots, but many did do a lot of bad things.

    I've a feeling this will go well with no strings attached.
    29 NATG XII Day 24: Filli Vanilli Forgiveness - Blazewing

    Art image 29
    Pinkie never means any harm with what she says or does, but her usual lack of social awareness in Filli Vanilli was really off-putting, so while we didn't get an onscreen apology for her unintentional thoughtlessness towards Fluttershy in the episode itself, I thought I'd make one for this prompt. =)

    Wanted to go for this Newbie Artist Training Grounds stuffs, but with dragons! I would know... it hurts to hold all that negative energy and baggage of the past. To me, Garble is no exception. Not excusing any of his bad behavior towards Spike and co., but STILL.... Consider this as more or less a "what if?" pic. Should be obvious what it entails.
