• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XIV: Day 16


    I always have been a huge fan of this prompt! I get to see how interests change from year to year when it comes to other media and it always gives me either a sense of nostalgia or gives me something new to check out and enjoy. One of the beautiful things of sharing art, eh?

    As for today we managed to bring in 53 ponies which now brings us up to 923 ponies in total! We're so close to 1000 now everyone, just a little bit more!

    Now that we are on the back half of the NATG, I am bringing out a prompt that I usually use much earlier, but wanted to experiment with it now that you all have a bit of experience under your belts. Variety is an important thing for an artist to learn and one can't just get by on ponies alone! So to give your creative muscles a stretch, I'd like you to Draw a pony as another species / Draw a pony getting a new lease on life.

    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:

    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!

    Always loved "Havel's Armor" From the souls series, and I also love ponies in armor, so this is just a givin' when it comes to this prompt to make "Dark souls" ponies :)
    5 Devil May Pony - GoldenMidnight (or Angus)

    Finally was able to find my own way of drawing ponies thanks to this prompt! I can already see the difference compared to the original show style.

    When fellow treasure hunters meet. Although, nothing Cookie and Syntax have searched for thus far has ever determined the fate of the world like what Mario quests for, lol
    12 Deep Horse Galactic - Faith?

    14 NATG2024d15 - Ponified / A Pony from Another World - C_||_R

    Art image 14
    Picking a favourite book or game is so difficult, so I just picked a future history which I've always found creative. And I'm sure ponyQu will be totally benevolent and would absolutely never ever ever turn segments of Humanity into skibidi toilets or shuffling doormats!
    15 The Pony From Subspace - EmilyLsArt

    Art image 15
    A ponified Ramona Flowers from the Scott Pilgrim comic series. It's become my newest obsession this year! I have yet to read the last two volumes of the series.

    17 - Tenebris Noctus

    Art image 17
    Kirin from the Monster hunter series
    18 Pinkie Pie and Izzy Moonbow meet - KevinHz19

    Art image 18
    Different world or different time. Applies almost same to me. Pinkie Pie and Izzy Moonbow meeting each other. Seems Izzy has a new Earth Pony friend now
    20 Sora comes to Ponyville - glitchedwoody

    21 The Book Club - Star

    Art image 21
    What would happen if multiple characters of different books met together? In case you like books here are the books they are based of off. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18584855-heartless ( the queen of hearts, and raven) https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21413662-what-if-serious-scientific-answers-to-absurd-hypothetical-questions ( Stick man) https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/113436.Eragon ( Dragon : Saphira)
    25 Little Knight Pony - Frown Factory

    Art image 25
    70 min; the Knight from Hollow Knight as a pone
    28 Kirin hunt - Ragmo

    Art image 28
    Barioth Armor doesnt seem good for this encounter with its negative thunder resistance, but it has some skills for evade and things that can be a base for crit-draw GS for that Wyvern Impact. Well we had Bloons TD6 and Cyberpunk 2077 the last years, but with the announcement of Monster Hunter Wilds i got back into MHW... God i LOVE that game

    "Did they let you keep the leg?"
    31 c?? rl - SOENJAY

    Art image 31
    Normally I'd draw a pony of one of my favorite video game characters or something, but I've participated in so damn many of these NATG's that I'm running out of character's I'd like to ponify. I decided instead to make Pony Carl Edwards, my childhood NASCAR hero. Here he is doing his signature backflip after a race victory. Also he was sponsored by Subway and MLP used to air on the hub network so I liked the pun.
    32 ETERNAL Algebra Class - Mintwhistle

    Art image 32
    Sort of inspired by the latest BFDI:TPOT episode ("Out of the Blue"). Liy is a unicorn whose horn (and hooves?) light up when you press the switch on her nose. Four is a draconequus (though he doesn't really look the part; he looks more like Prickle from Gumby). And the Eternal Algebra Class is exactly what it sounds like; you don't want to go here. (The full chalkboard for anyone who wants to see it: https://sta.sh/0182l53ben3o)
    33 [SFM] The Sun as been doubled! - red4567

    Art image 33
    Part of me thinks that time in Sunset's world goes slower than in Pony Equestria. If they ever confirm G5 EG, I bet they'll go for this possibility, even though it still would've been awesome to see a sci-fi pony series.
    34 2024 ATG #15: MLP Fanart: Fallout S1 ponified - Blackblade360

    Art image 34
    Here's a drawing for Prompt #15, Draw a ponified version of your favorite book, game, ect / Draw a pony from another world In this fanart, I drew Lucy, Cooper/the ghoul, and Maximus from the Fallout series as ponies. Derpibooru link: https://derpibooru.org/images/3384675

    Pizza Tower looks different from the last time I played it. Must be a new update...
    38 NATG Day 15 - Reaper as a Pony! - peachyraccoonsart

    Art image 38
    "You can't escape death." Had fun drawing Reaper from Overwatch as a pony version! It's one of my favorite characters in the game! :)
    39 Gex in Pretty Pony Programming - Oxfordinary

    Gex 3 was my first PSOne game. Still is one of my favorites.
    43 Silly Billy Ponified - SuperSonicRainboom

    Art image 43
    Drew Silly Billy for today's prompt since it fits today's prompt and I really like the mod and game itself
    44 Last Unicorn - Frith

    Art image 44
    I see we're at the middle of the course, the time when we get that crossover prompt that's so popular, year after year. I should have prepared. The alt prompt calls for a pony from another world and if you go for worlds of imagination, there's a plethora. Well, I like the design of the unicorn in The Last Unicorn, so I figured I'd draw that. I ended up watching the movie again on the Internet Archive, with the sound cut off every time there was a song. x_x So, otherworldly unicorn achieved. Background filled in with glittery paints. I wonder what Soobel drew.
    45 Megan's Lullaby - Tealmint Moonrise

    Art image 45
    "You're Okay, you're alright. I'll never ever leave your side. I will stay and I will fight, with you. You're Okay, you're alright. I'll stay here through the darkest night. All the way. I will fight, with you..."

    This was painful. I fought with the perspective for too long.

    Walking through the tavern, Kerfuffle happens to pass another pony in a similar spot as she is. Crossover with I Wani Hug That Gator, featuring Olivia as a pony.
