• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XIV: Makeup Day 1


    When we leave home we often find ourselves in a place that becomes unusual to us, taking time for us to adjust until it eventually starts feeling like a home. But when we return to our original home after a long enough time sometimes your town and even your own home make you feel both out of place and right at home all at the same time.

    As they say, you can never go home again.

    Speaking of something nice and comfortable, we are officially on our first Makeup Day! That means if you have been keeping up with the prompts so far you have earned a day off or if you have some prompts you need to catch up on or just want to attempt a prompt again you're welcome to do so. We're a third of the way through the NATG, you've all earned it!

    As for today, we managed to bring in 52 ponies which brings our ten-day total to 604 ponies! Not too bad everyone! Let's keep pushing towards 1000!

    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!

  • Discussion: Are Unicorns Safe?

    UNICORNS. They build amazing cities, battle terrifying monsters, and... are super corruptible. Can you imagine keeping a world safe where a 3rd of the population has the ability to literally break time?

    Starlight Glimmer, Sombra, Trixie with an Alicorn Amulet, Rarity with her evil inspiration spell, the corruptibility of unicorns is something that seems to happen freakishly often in Equestria. And it doesn't matter who it is either. One wrong spell, bad breakup, or fishy artifact and suddenly you have a super-powered magical creature wandering around causing all sorts of chaos.

    How do we keep the unicorns from freaking out? Is it even possible? Are they the least safe pony race?
