• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XIII: Day 3


    Just as I was hoping, day two of our little adventure did not disappoint in the slightest! From ponies making moves on each other to being positively giddy with excitement and energy, to even a reference to an old video game I know and love, the creativity has been pouring out of you all in a torrent. It makes me think I may have to step up my game to keep giving you prompts to be excited about.

    Before we get to that though, we managed to pull in 97 ponies today which brings our two day total to 188 ponies. Not bad at all for two days!

    Now that we've got our ponies moving about and springing into action, they've got to use that energy for something. Like the excitement I've seen in the NATG group chat and the comments leading up to the event I figure for today you could try to Draw a pony gearing up / Draw a pony taking the world by storm. Keep those ponies enthusiastic, it's only going to get more difficult as we go on!

     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.

    Check on after the break for today's gallery!

  • Discussion: What Does The Fandom Need To Improve On?

    Artist - t72b

    We are coming up on 13 solid years of pony fandom for those of us that started with G4, and even longer for people that have been around since the 80's. We've had ups, downs, and just about everything in between. To say our chaotic little fandom has been eventful is an understatement.

    What do you think the fandom as a whole needs to improve on? What thing does the general population do that drives you nuts?

    Go be dictator for a few minutes below and decide our fate in the comments!

    If Trixie could take on Twilight with the alicorn amulet, how much more intense would Glimmy be while wearing it?

  • Fanfiction (Scouted): Velvet Quill & Sunny Skies



    Description:One evening, Twilight Velvet, book editor for Hoovesbury Publishing and mother of two, meets her newest client: aspiring writer Sunny Skies, who writes of distant lands and people from across the world, who has as many secrets as Celestia has loving subjects.

    It didn't matter to her much, so long as Sunny did her work, and Velvet hers. But as the seasons pass by and their acquaintance grows, Velvet finds that perhaps she and Sunny are more alike than she could have ever imagined.
