• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XII: Day 2

    And with that, we can wrap up another first day for the Newbie Artist Training Grounds! The first day is always an exciting one even if it isn't always the most exciting of prompts. It's a time for new artists to gather, for veterans to return and for me to always be amazed at what new ways you guys can take the same prompt we've been using for the first day for 12 years. Not only that, we have a new generation of ponies joining us this year as well, with Sprout being the one to take the honor of being our first NATG G5 pony header!

    For today we managed to total up a lovely 114 ponies for our very first day! Let's hope that we can keep that up.

    Now that we have our ponies standing (or quite stuck) it's time to move those limbs and get some motion going! So for tonight, we have another familiar standby for the NATG: Draw a moving pony / Draw a pony leaping to action.

    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, 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!

  • Discovery Family Running a Week Long Pony Marathon

    For those of you out there with cable still, Discover Family is apparently running a week long marathon of both Friendship is Magic and Equestria girls. The event starts on the 9th of July and happens every day starting at 6 AM.

    Considering everything is shifting to Netflix and Youtube for pony, it's neat to see the old guard still celebrate some cartoon equine.

    Apologies for the lateness of this one guys! I was wound up making sure the NATG was a smooth launch to the point I forgot about the MD. Sunny and Izzy have some Capri Sun to hopefully make up for it!

    Anyhow, morning my friends. Hope you are all doing well. Ready to start the weekend?
