• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XII: Day 29

    My Little Pony Newbie Artist Training Grounds Author Calpain

    After we have a hard work week, a hard time in our lives or if we just feel like it's a lazy day it's sometimes nice to be able to take a break from the world around us. As artists you always have to make sure to take time to recharge your batteries and now that our marathon of the NATG is almost over you all need a nice good recharge.

    For today we managed to get 49 ponies which now brings us up to 2003 ponies in total! We finally hit the 2k mark everyone, congratulations to you all!

    Well everyone, today is the infamous Day 29! For you veterans out there you know what that means, but for those of you who are new to the game, Day 29 is a very special day in the NATG. Started way way back by Phoe when she was running the NATG, the prompt she picked for this day was meant to see just how crazy you can get with one picture using all the days you've drawn before. That's right, tonight I want you to Draw as many previous prompts in a single picture as you can / Draw a pony being pulled every which way.

    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!

    Darby loves picnics because, besides eating outside, she gets to relax in the beauty of nature. Perhaps she dreams about her true love when she relaxes?

    6 Post-event Relaxation - EveryDayDashie

    Art image 6
    This month is such a wild roller coaster ride for us who participated in NATG, isn't it? I initially decided to draw Rainbow Dash relaxing after such a long journey of NATG, but then I realized that the perspective seemed a little bit off and the design of the chair wasn't that appealing. Nevertheless, I still went with this design and eventually fixed the drawing. It still looks a bit off, but at least it's better. I've also included drawings for Day 1, 10, 20, and 27 as it reflects a drastic change in my art style and represent almost the entirety of my NATG marathon for this year. Apart from that, there isn't really anything special about this drawing other than taking a break and looking away from the monitor for a while. With that being said, this drawing took me 4 hours to finish and I hope that you enjoy this drawing as much as I do!

    Dragons can behave like cats or dogs, they really enjoy the rubbing either the belly, the back or anywhere that will satisfy it… For Weston since he have feathers all around his body, when he tries to rub Spike it makes it even more relaxing and satisfying than ever… Spike really enjoys it. (sorry for a not-so clear explanation of this…)
