• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XIV: Day 20


    While anger is an emotion that the world all too often succumbs too, finding peace with yourself is an even harder task that some never accomplish in their lifetime. To be content with yourself, your past, your accomplishments and your failures, to gather it all up into a whole that you can accept as you without regret is no easy feat. But the least we can do is try.

    As we enter into the last part of the NATG for this year we managed to bring in 47 ponies which brings our total up to 1137 ponies altogether. Keep on pushing forward everyone!

    Regardless if we manage to find our peace or not, the world has a manner of always surprising us, catching us off guard and sometimes putting us into position where we can only hold back what fate has in store for us. To acknowledge the world's weird ways of messing with us today I would like you to Draw a pony experiencing a twist of fate / Draw a pony delaying the inevitable.

    As always you can find the submitter here.

    11 Gusty's Inner Peace - EmilyLsArt

    Art image 11
    Another simple Gusty the Great drawing. In my MLP AU (still WIP), she experiences the magic of inner peace after hiding the Bewitching Bell from Grogar at Mt. Everhoof and spreads it all over Equestria...and herself with it. Yeah Gusty dies like this in this AU but it's my way I guess.
    12 Twilight meditating - KevinHz19

    Art image 12
    Twilight in meditation thanks to Somnambula's class. Inner peace. Think this should cure her Twilighting silliness?
    13 NATG2024d19 - Rarity Finding Peace With Herself - C_||_R

    Art image 13
    "It's not about eliminating wrinkles, it's about wearing them with dignity. Lines showing where we've laughed and where we've struggled and succeeded. Our mortality is not a preditor stalking us all our lives, but a companion accompanying our journey, reminding us that, even if we were to live forever, these moments do not. But if any moments and memories at all mean much to us, it's when we hold and share them with others."
    15 Inner Peace - Frown Factory

    Art image 15

    17 A Fallen Star - Star

    Art image 17
    When a light past in the sky, a star has fallen.
    18 Inner peace - Ragmo

    Art image 18
    I'm going to Yoga once every week and we start with a meditation session everytime. It's great to relax your mind and not have your thoughts all over the place. Caveman Pony is on his journey to a calm mind aswell :3 On the other hand some ponies, like Swift Sword, just need to get it all out :) The cross legged pose was a bit problematic; there arent many references in the show.
    21 NATG XIV Day 19: Protective Anger - AceBlazewing

    Art image 21
    Just as Blaze admires Pecan for being calm and bold when it comes to things he's afraid of, Pecan also admires Blaze for his desire to protect those he cares about. =)
    22 Embracing the mirror - PencilMaelle

    Art image 22
    Winter Wooly always knew she had to face something deep inside herself, and with time and precious friends, she finally accepted who she truely was

    Art image 23
    An excuse to draw an idea I've had for years but never felt like attempting.
    25 Sunset Serenity - Mintwhistle

    Art image 25
    Featuring Sunset on a beach. It's nice to be a reformed unicorn. (Considered doing Starlight instead, but I changed my mind.)
    26 Nothing like you - Tenebris Noctus

    Art image 26

    32 NATG Day 19 - The Sheriff vs. The Bandit/Outlaw - peachyraccoonsart

    Art image 32
    "It only takes one bullet." They were having a "Wild West" standoff or, like a showdown. Looks like the sheriff faces off against the bandit/outlaw. Who could win... we'll find out soon.
    35 Harmony (animated) - Nedemai

    Art image 35
    This gave me a bit more trouble than I expected but at least I managed to get the idea to work. Ran out of time and there are a few mistakes. Animated everything on 2's, but I think it gives it a kind of charm.
    38 Inaccurate Reflection - Termyotter

    Art image 38
    Finding peace with yourself is a very personal thing, and finding it doesn't always mean finding the RIGHT way to peace.:)
    39 Book Book Book Book Book Book Book - spicyricexxiv

    Art image 39
    "Around books as far as the eye can see"
    42 Strictly Business - Novaintellus

    Art image 42
    Guess you'll have to chalk it up to bad luck
    44 "Philippians 4:6-7" - Emerald Pencil

    Art image 44
    "6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV
    45 Fluttershy has no enemies - SuperSonicRainboom

    Art image 45
    This drawing was inspired by a dog with a butterfly on it's snout and it's about the dog not having enemies, finding peace goes well with having no enemies (I hope that makes sense haha..)
