• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XII: Day 9

    Luna does make for a cute Kirin, but you'd better not make her angry.

    Wonderful job tonight everyone! I know switching from ponies to other creatures may have been a tough one with all of the different anatomy, but to expand as an artist we have to get outside of our comfort zone and explore new horizons, right? Who knows, maybe you found a species you liked drawing just as much as regular ponies in the process! Keep up the good work as we continue to press on, my friends.

    For today we managed to rake in 73 ponies which now brings our total to 692 ponies! Nicely done as we creep towards the 1k mark.

    For today, this one was inspired by not only a very old prompt but by a comment or two I've heard from other artists as well. We're very used to drawing ponies full-sized (or getting there at least), but I do notice unless someone is drawing the CMC or one of the other fillies or colts in the show they are usually pretty absent. Considering their stature it can be hard to get the proportions right to make them look good so for today I wanted to give you a little practice with that by having you Draw a pony as a filly or colt / Draw a pony sent back in time. 

    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.

    If Pinkie wasn't a pony I think a yak form would suit her well.

    Evening everyone, hope Saturday has treated you well! Ready to get the party started tonight?

  • What 10 Years of Pony Fandom 3D Modeling Evolution Looks Like! SecondLife Ponies From 2011 to 2021

    In my journey into OpenPony oblivion over the past few months, I've run into a bunch of other pony models that people still use just due to how much time and money they've invested into them. Some have commissions 3D artists for hundreds of accessories, or just bought things various people sell. Out of curiousity, I asked around looking for someone who had all the models in a single OC, and finally found one!

    Flutterbubber Hollowheart here models her pony in it's various forms, from the earliest "Curly Fride" mares of 2011, to the modern day OpenPony you've seen me spamming here and on Twitter. How has the Second Life community evolved on the 3D department over the last decade? It's pretty fascinating to see all of the iterations.

    Below, you will find a gallery of a good chunk of them, minus a few super rare or one of a kind forms. These are the pony models that were sold or given away with mass adoption in some form. As an added bonus, I also have an anthro section following the regular pony one, where people converted their horses into furry and bipedal forms of various types. Go check it all out if you are interested at all in 3D art! Which ones do you like the most?

  • The Top 10 Pony Videos of June 2022 - and Youtube "Made for Kids" Mode Ruining Everything Again!

    Made for Kids is another new Youtube explosion right now, causing animation of any kind to automatically be flagged as "for kids", ruining people's ability to use the algorithm, comments, and monetize their work. It's unfortunately a big deal, and targeting a ton of different creators. Hopefully we can get everything archived up! You will find a full PSA at the beginning of this month's top 10.

    Anyway, check out the best of the best of the month below!
