• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XIV: Day 15


    Sometimes our actions are just enough to give grey hairs to someone else. We can only hope that such things are few and between lest we become known for our failures and flaws. The best we can do is move on, learn from our mistakes and try to be better going forward. Not only for ourselves but for everyone we care about.

    I know what isn't flawed though and that is the fact we brought in 46 ponies today which now brings our total to 870 ponies! We're so close to those four-digit numbers! Keep up the good work everyone!

    Now that we are halfway through the NATG, tonight's prompt is a special one! It's one that Phoe, who started the NATG, started a long time ago before I took over and is one I love to use every year. We all have our own interests outside of pony, especially when it comes to other media and this is a great chance for you to show off what you love because today I'd like you to Draw a ponyfied version of your favorite book, game, etc / Draw a pony from another world.

    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!

    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.

    21 Trixie the Birthday Party Magician - mafon

    Art image 21
    After the debacle with Ursa Minor, the Great and Powerful had to take the most degrading jobs to earn a living. She even had a stint as a birthday party magician. A birthday party magician !
    22 Was It All Worth It? (NATG 2024 Day 14) - IronYoshi

    Novo sometimes reflects and wonders is she made the right call on that terrible day she lost almost everything...
    24 Falling Gleam - EmilyLsArt

    Art image 24
    Kinda rushed, but here's some more art featuring my new pony OC Gleamintine (from Day 12)! Better find a safe landing, Gleam...those rocks are sharp down there.
    25 Falling From Grace - Frith

    Art image 25
    Who is Grace and why was the pony riding her? Y'know, falling out of the saddle was particularly harsh for Christopher Reeve. Fortunately for our pink pone, Grace is smol and she's got a talent for first aid. And now, deeep gravely voice: *In a world where everypony wears saddles, who will ride the riders? Coming soon to a theater near you.* I used watercolor pencils and watercolours, some of them glittery.
    26 NATG XIV Day 14: Wistful Thinking - AceBlazewing

    Art image 26
    This one's a flashback to Cookie's younger days, when she was still apprenticed to Knick Knack, the former owner of Curios. Mentors can receive guidance from their students just as much as their students can receive it from them. =)
    27 "1Up-ed" - Emerald Light

    Art image 27
    You don't have to be old to be out of your prime--you just have to not have played in a while! Poor Emerald got dunked on. Not too much new here, but I did attempt to draw a couch and game controllers. "Before a downfall the heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor" (Proverbs 18:12 NIV).
    29 Down to the Wire - Mintwhistle

    Art image 29
    Based on the movie, in which the royal family is exposed and Pipp's career (temporarily, of course) comes crashing down.
    33 Icaruscootaloo - Lore/Docard

    Art image 33
    I'd buy the tee shirt!
    34 Math Burn - Termyotter

    Art image 34
    Sooo, typically past the 20's is sort of past prime physical age for people, but she's two years past her last mathematically prime year, 31. I don't know what her age is, but its supposed to be someone trolling her, so they probably will aim higher. Hey, if she's going to paint an equals sign on her flank, then I think bad math jokes are fair game!
    35 NATG2024d14 - A Pony Past their Prime - C_||_R

    Art image 35
    What was Star Swirl, the mage who for years had led the greatest heroes of Equestria and its protection, thinking when he had been so quickly defeated, with Tirek not having needed an iota of cleverness or surprise, underhoofed moves to defeat him? Probably just 'ouch' given the immediacy of the beat down :<
    37 New Age - NiTEi

    Art image 37
    8 is past 7.

    In an ancient ruin they party finds an old golem, slowly being taken over by nature and time. Not letting it crumble away, Kerfuffle steps up with the party's help to give it the repairs it needs.
    46 Loco atormentado - SkulltanEve

    Art image 46
    Inspired by "Copa rota" (specifically, the cover by Los Rodriguez). I've listened to that song over and over while drawing for this challenge, so I suppose it was only a matter of time until it inspired me with all of its vivid imagery.
