• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XIV: Day 19


    With the recent heat as we enter into summer, how hot will the days ahead be? At least there are still ways to chill if need be, and Zipp here is way ahead of all of us. I really would love to take a dip in a pool this summer.

    As for today's haul, we managed to bring in a lovely 59 ponies which now brings us up to 1090 ponies in total. We might not get to 2000, but let's see just how far we can go!

    We have dealt with a variety of emotions so far within the NATG, but I'm not quite done yet testing your skills. So far we've dealt with the likes of happiness, sadness, love, and fear so let's continue our journey into our pony's emotions. That's why for today I would like you to try and Draw a pony on the warpath / Draw a pony finding peace with themselves.

    Art image 6
    Hi, I just want to thank you for this drawing initiative, it's really nice to draw alongside people who like the same things ^^ The characters are two of my OCs, the green earth pony is Verdant, and the yellow one BlossomFall. I kinda wanted to draw some comics about my mane 6 but it's hard to find the time lately. Have a nice day !

    13 Chill Comet - Mintwhistle

    Art image 13
    Decided to draw Comet, who would probably take some time to get used to the heat due to having lived in a snowy place his whole life.

    Art image 32

    34 2024 ATG #18: FoE Fanart: Chill Out - Blackblade360

    Art image 34
    Sometimes during the summer time when we’re doing stuff, we tend to take a break and eat, or lick something cool such as a popsicle stick. Rina here is taking a break from a WIP project of a modified Enclave suite that can allow unicorns to fit their horn through, alongside some modified Steel Ranger suites as well. Thanks to the limited scrap supply from her home, she was able to get some pieces that she might use. Derpibooru: https://derpibooru.org/images/3386519

    37 "Standing in Faith" - Emerald Light

    Art image 37
    Emerald Pencil taking some heat! Upon studying some more show vectors, I think I am starting to get my curled forelegs a bit better. I really enjoyed making this piece! "In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one" (Ephesians 6:16 NIV).
    40 Arcane Conditioning - SOENJAY

    Art image 40
    I would actually die without my AC unit. I drew this during the first summer heat wave of 90+ degree days.

    Finally didn't do it late this time (well to my standards at least) but I really like how this turned out
    45 NATG Day 18 - Chilling In The Beach - peachyraccoonsart

    Art image 45
    Mint enjoying a hot day on the beach - she could've beat the heat in the summer!
    46 I'll get around to it - Termyotter

    Art image 46
    This is sort of about taking the head while another chills out. More head-canon for me is that there is a fairly high amount of types of color-blindness in dragons that can lead to them thinking a lot of ponies look alike, if one relies more on color to tell them apart. I admit I was kinda thinking of one scene from the Fallout TV show for this.
    48 The Last Unipour - Frith

    Art image 48
    Chilling in the bath to beat the heat. It's what I do. Just coloured pencils over the pencil sketch this time. I needed to show transparency in the bath water.

    Lasair abandoned Goddess during her life, so her penance will go through her death.

    59 Grogar's Game - Volcanic Depths - Khazard

    Art image 59
    The party takes a big dive on their next adventure. Heading deep into the classic volcano level, which is a bit much but one pony is enjoying it so its all worth it
