    And with that we finally hit our last day everyone, day 30. It has been a long road and I know for many of you it has been hard, but I have been so very proud of you all to even get to this point. Even if you only managed to get some of the prompts done you're still a success in my eyes simply because you tried something new, something to improve yourself. And that deserves all the praise in the world.

    As we wrap up the NATG we managed to get 52 ponies for this makeup day, giving us 2101 ponies in total!

    Now, with it being the final day, I'm sure you all can guess what is coming! That's right, today is graduation day! A day of celebration and joy! I really hope you all had fun this year and as always I want to thank you all for including me and my silly prompts in it. I hope to see many of you next year, I'm going to miss you lot in the meantime, but even so I'll be looking out for your art throughout the year. Keep the drawing strong as we head into our final prompt: Draw a pony graduating / Draw a pony attaining their goal.

    Also, artists have 48 hours to complete this one instead of just 24. The marathon is over, time to take things at a more relaxed pace.

    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.

  • Pony Plushie Compilation #602

    We have something slightly different for your header today. Galacon had their annual plushie event with a whopping 631 ponies in attendance this year. That's a lot of plushies! And to think, that's just from people that attended the con. I can only imagine how many are out there floating around over the course of the last decade. Our creators are crazy.

    Anyway, get plushie poni below.

  • OpenPony Havoc Wars Battle Royale Today! - Ponyville Edition -

    For all of the OpenPonies out there, (or if you are interested in making one, now's a good time), a new free-for-all war will be taking place in Pony ville today at 3:00 PM PST! The army of new people that have joined up and made Popen  have been playing around with a spawnable RTS game called Havoc Wars that lets you build a base then manufacture tanks, helicopters, artillery, and even nukes, and battle it out against other people also participating.

    The event this time around will be taking place on the Pony Town sim, meaning the streets of G4 horseland will host an all-out war with little remote control sized armaments that you control just like an RTS, with your adorable pony flying around overseeing it all. See the image above for what you can expect to see people make. 

    If you just want to hang out, chat, and watch the battle, this is a great place to meet other people with pony avatars! We saw around 600 people make them so it has been pretty poppin' these last few weeks as people discover places to hang out and admire their poni. If you need help making an OpenPony, Ponyville is actually the newbie area we posted previously, so it's a good time to do it! Be sure to check out our intro post or dive into the guide. It makes the process of creating your horse relatively painless.

    Anyway, point your Firestorm, Black Dragon, or default SL browser to Pony Town, the Ponyville style sim. The battle begins at 3:00 PM PST and goes until everyone gets tired of destroying each other, which usually lasts all day. The starter set for Havoc Wars is over here, though it's complicated so focus on getting that pony made first which should teach you enough to get the game going!  I'll be around too for picture taking and helping people make their ponies.

  • Animation: Series 1 - Prologue

    We've got an amazing new animation spanning all the way back to Generation 1 and onward to the major events in G4, with a super stylistic aesthetic and an intriguing bit of fanon covering it all. I don't know how far this series will go, but it's off to a great start and gives you a whopping 5 minutes of animation with a wonderful backtrack and sound design.
