• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XIV: Day 24

    Well, another plus to the NATG is that at the very least it won't unravel reality thanks to a broken causality event. The likelihood is very low, as far as I know. Our artists haven't yet been able to completely break the universe.

    What isn't broken is the number of ponies we brought in for today! Tonight we managed 49 ponies which brings our running total up to 1374 ponies! Nice work my friends, let's keep pushing towards the finish!

    While we are on the topic of Pinkie breaking the universe, I find that tonight's prompt is somewhat related to a special episode of FiM! Our ponies have their secrets and secret dealings, and while we had ponies shrouded in mystery earlier in the event, we never were able to uncover anything about them. So I feel for tonight it would be fun to Draw a pony stumbling on a secret / Draw a pony making a deal under the table.

    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.

    Check on after the break for today's gallery!

    Now that this adventure is over, they got an original clone (based on NATG VI) of Caveman Pony. Considering the clone didn't make any connections to our time, we can savely send him back to his time without worry, and resolve all that wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff.

    Like Syntax said, it takes a powerful incentive for a heavyset pony like Cookie to rush anywhere, and the release of a new Daring Do book is just such an incentive. =P

    Trying to think about making up time while being on time while being on time is not the on time you want to be. Being a little off time is best for avoiding time problems.... in short time travel should not be attempted.
