• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XIV: Day 10


    You know, in this case, sometimes working for Peanuts isn't such a bad thing. More importantly, I'm happy that more than one of you came up with this reference for today. You make an old pony proud.

    With Day 9 out of the way we managed to bring in another 59 ponies which brings us up to 552 ponies in total as we finish a third of the NATG! Keep up the pace everyone, I know we're all getting a little tired, but we can make it.

    Now that it has been 10 days into the NATG with your first Makeup Day being tomorrow, I really hope that you all are starting to settle in and are starting to feel a bit more comfortable drawing on a regular basis. So far the prompts have been a bit abstract and can take a bit of time to wrap your head around so as we wind down to our first Makeup Day how about something a bit more simple as I ask you to Draw a pony feeling out of place / Draw a pony feeling right at home.

    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:
    Copy link address 

    Use that URL in the compiler for your image. Hopefully that works!

    Max Image Size is 4MB!

    Animations do not animate when sent through the compiler! Include some text with your submitted animation so people can 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!

    Art image 32
    Here's a drawing for Prompt #9, Draw a pony working for peanuts / Draw a pony working a crummy job In this artwork, it's always best not to pissed off somepony, even if they're a former raider. When Heartbeat's small quest went kinda wrong and turned out to be a scam, let's just say she handled the situation of killing two birds with one stone moment.. Heres the Derpibooru version: https://derpibooru.org/images/3380501

    Art image 49
    Sometimes mentors push a bit too much on their students. Maybe you can get away with it as head of state, but the rest may have to pay up.:) Twilight: Pay you? But Princess Celestia never paid me for all those times... Starlight: Not MY problem. Maybe that's why she gave you the whole alicorn package. Twilight: I'm sure what you learn... Starlight: Unless you got an extra pair of wings there, I think I'll be taking the bits.

    Art image 52
    Even working for peanuts, there are ways to be content! This pose is a new one for me, and I am happy that the forelegs turned out well. Nothing super ambitious this time, though. "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving" (Colossians 3:23-24 NIV).

    59 Grogar's Game - Escort Mission - Khazard

    Art image 59
    The dreaded escort quest. They take up time, they're too long for little effort needed. No one likes them, especially when they involve multiple trips back to back. But you'll always get saddled with one sooner or later if you're the adventurer type.
