• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XIV: Day 17


    You just know she is the fastest Rainbow Fish in all of Fishquestria. That form is just built for speed! It is a lot of fun to see what comes out of this prompt each year and what sort of creatures I may see our ponies changed into especially when we mix a bit of the real world in with fantasy.

    As for today's critters, we've rounded up we managed to get 50 ponies which brings us up to 973 ponies in total. Keep it up, everyone! You're doing great!

    So far I've seen a number of emotions out of our ponies, but for the most part we tend to keep them happy and silly. Some of the prompts I have in mind will challenge that notion and try to give you experience exploring a darker path if you so choose as tonight I would like you to Draw a pony scared out of their wits / Draw a pony scared stiff.

    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.

    13 The Problem With Photosynthesis - Star

    Art image 13
    *Angery plant sounds* Fun fact: The Chlorophyll (what makes plants green) helps with absorbing light however this means that plants that are not green will have a hard time getting the light they need.
    14 NATG Day 16 - Mint as a Human! - peachyraccoonsart

    Art image 14
    Turned Mint into a human - if she were in the Equestria Girls universe! She's a university student and a straight-A student also!
    15 Was she a changeling all along? - Ragmo

    Art image 15
    Oh no! Did the changelings abduct her? Or did she deceive us for all those years O.O
    16 Nebula Izzy Seapony (Stars Beyond A Moonbow) - Moonky

    Art image 16
    Our favorite Moonbow has taken a new form and discovered a way to break through space and time after going on a date with Destiny! With a new mane reflecting her place in the stars, she exhilarates in the sight of a new world where nopony has ever seen before.
    17 ED: NATG 2024 Day 16 - Addelum

    Art image 17
    Sunny's a Uni now! To be fair, the naming of "My" Little Pony is akin to the concept of a Neopet.
    19 NATG2024d16 - A New Lease on Life - C_||_R

    Art image 19
    Opaline gets a new lease on making ponies' lives terrible when, after thousands of years, her tree is cut into by logger ponies! Kind of repeating yesterday's prompt, crossing things over with FernGully :P
    21 2024 ATG #16: MLP Fanart: Human Heartbeat - Blackblade360

    Art image 21
    Here's a drawing for Prompt #16, Draw a pony as another species / Draw a pony getting a new lease on life In this fanart, I drew my pony oc Heartbeat and her human counterpart. Also I haven't drawn humans for a while Derpibooru: https://derpibooru.org/images/3385169
    25 [SFM] Pipp-ro the dragon - red4567

    Art image 25
    People keep comparing the G5 dragons to Spyro the Dragon, so why not use a Spyro model to make a dragon-ified Pipp?
    26 KirinShy - EmilyLsArt

    Art image 26
    Fluttershy as a kirin. The MLP Gameloft app did their own take of Kirin Fluttershy a while back, but this is my own take on her.
    28 Yona Best YakBat - Lore/Docard

    Art image 28
    Yona: "Yona van't to suck your..." Sandbar: "YES!!! Whatever it is, I'm game!"
    29 Hitchequus - Mintwhistle

    Art image 29
    Hitch as a draconequus; I just thought it would be fun to see a more "orderly" character as one. Originally thought of him having more seaside animal parts, since he's the sheriff of a seaside town.
    32 Sunny Starscout - SOENJAY

    Art image 32
    I don't think I've ever drawn Sunny before. Pony or otherwise. Proportions are way off because I'm terrible at drawing humans, but I still had fun making this!
    34 Fun? - Faith?

    Art image 34
    From a joke my mom made 10 years ago
    36 Horse beetle fly - Frith

    Art image 36
    Another species... so I drew something that was not a pony: a mashup of a horse beetle and a horsefly and had another go at the watercolour glitter paints. I had a revamped changeling in mind.
    42 The Sweetest Little Trash Panda - Optimistic Neighsayer

    Art image 42
    “I’d like to rummage through your trash… if that’s okay with you.”
    43 Starlight's new start - SuperSonicRainboom

    Art image 43
    Drew Starlight's reformation for the prompt "Draw a pony getting a new lease on life" it felt fitting considering she turns a new leaf, this was really rushed sadly.

    49 Grogar's Game - Jurassic Party - Khazard

    Art image 49
    Frankly not enough adventures have dinosaurs. This one however does, the party comes across a zone that warps them to be more prehistoric to fit the times. Pipp has become a pterodactyl, Misty a parasaur, Tempest a tricerotops, Kerfuffle a velociraptor, and Skellinore a t-rex
