• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XII: Day 26

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

    Of course, Trixie would be a favorite this time around for her boisterous nature, it's hard for her not to spin a tall tale when talking about her travels. After all, she is the Great and Powerful Trixie and who is to say otherwise?

    For today we managed to bring in 49 ponies which brings us up to 1861 ponies in total! We keep getting closer and closer to that 2k mark everyone, keep it up!

    As we start to wrap things up for this year's NATG, our ponies have really seen it all, experiencing all sorts of emotions and all sorts of situations. Now, much like our own ponies after going through a season-long or many seasons-long arc, our ponies reach a crucial point in their journeys. So, much like how Twilight eventually earned her wings, it's time for our ponies to face a crucial point in their journies as well! That's why for today I'd like you to Draw a pony facing their destiny / Draw a pony about to make a life-changing decision.

    3 Stretching the 'Truth' - EveryDayDashie

    Art image 3
    Oh, come on! Don't tell me that you stole somepony else's art for NATG again, Rainbow?! Sweet Celestia, when is she gonna learn? We're just 1 week away from finishing this year's NATG! Everypony seems to be very proud of their marvelous artworks, and so am I. However, you gotta expect that there's always somepony who's trying to ruin the whole thing by gaining unfair advantage, and it looks like Rainbow is about to get in trouble this time. I decided to draw Rainbow Dash hiding the truth that she cheated in NATG, which you should never do. And since she doesn't want to be exposed for cheating, all she could do was to hide the truth and maybe stretch it even further. Who knows how far is she going to stretch the truth? Well, the sky's the limit... Anyway, this drawing took me around 3 hours to finish and I'm very happy with the result! Remember, honesty is the best policy and don't cheat!

    13 NATG XII Day 25: Tales of Adventure - Blazewing

    Art image 13
    Lesson learned for Tough Cookie: don't tell tales of adventure when Syntax is around. He might just remove the creative embellishments. =P
    14 Moonwing is planning a story - Minty Treble

    Art image 14
    This is Moon Wing, a blue griffin that’s definetly not Gallus, a friend of mine's OC. It’s crazy how he had been working on a story based on MLP for more than 6 years, we have recorded more than 80 episodes 45 mins each, and haven’t really showed it to many people... I hope we find a way of sharing it someday.

    17 How to handle a Dragon Bully! - Tarkan809

    Art image 17
    Spike had faced with the Dragon bullies during the time when he was looking for dragons that could be able to teach him how to breathe fire... Overall he never handled it by himself (nor Weston as well)... Then again he might have learned a few things from that adventure when he tried to find dragons like him... Whenever the Dragon Gang happen to come and strikes back again... Spike knows what to use in order to prevent them from terrorizing again... (Sorry if I wasn't clear but more than likely it's trying to tell a tale about how to deal with a Dragon Bully... (might not be related to the theme but it's alright it's something that I had in mind about Spike dealing with the Bullies again with a hose... (Yeah this is commonly related to "Spike's Search" episode)))

    37 Captain Floyd "Rowboat" Pones - SOENJAY

    Art image 37
    Today's prompt had something to do with telling a tall tale. The first thing I think of when those words are spoken is Sea Of Thieves, so here's a ponified version of my pirate, Captain Floyd "Rowboat" Jones. The pun just writes itself with a name like that.
    38 Hard Truth to Stretch - Pone-Dancer

    Art image 38
    Sugar Rush and Twigg were thrilled to raise Lunadrop Lilly as their own; sadly, foals don't stay small forever. She grew up so fast! And with newfound freedom comes newfound 'problems'. Oddly enough Twigg is the one who wants to decimate whoever Lunadrop decides to date. That's their little girl! She must stay young and innocent and only love her parents forever! Sugar Rush doesn't care. He wants healthy communication and will teach her how to set up boundaries. How to be careful. He doesn't want her ending up like her biological mother! Together the adopted parents make one heck of a team when it comes to Lunadrop's love life XD Lunadrop belongs to A-Generic-Artist-Lol

    I think you're getting a bit too excited there Emerald! I am still getting used to drawing eyes, but I think I did pretty good on this one. As always, constructive criticism is encouraged and appreciated!
