• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XIV: Day 16


    I always have been a huge fan of this prompt! I get to see how interests change from year to year when it comes to other media and it always gives me either a sense of nostalgia or gives me something new to check out and enjoy. One of the beautiful things of sharing art, eh?

    As for today we managed to bring in 53 ponies which now brings us up to 923 ponies in total! We're so close to 1000 now everyone, just a little bit more!

    Now that we are on the back half of the NATG, I am bringing out a prompt that I usually use much earlier, but wanted to experiment with it now that you all have a bit of experience under your belts. Variety is an important thing for an artist to learn and one can't just get by on ponies alone! So to give your creative muscles a stretch, I'd like you to Draw a pony as another species / Draw a pony getting a new lease on life.

    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:

  • Poll Results: What Was the Best Applejack Focused Episode?

    I admit, this poll was tough. Applejack episodes usually come with Applebloom or apple family in general, which made stuff like Pear Butter's episode a questionable add here. I'm guessing that's the cause of the other being relatively high.

    New poll time: What's the Type of Pony Best Fan Content?


  • Community Soapbox: G4's Influence on Animation, Generation 6 of MLP, and More!

    Soapbox time, where the fandom expresses its opinions! As always, we are open for submissions on these.  If you'd like to submit your own soapbox, hit up this post for infos.

    As always, these are the opinions of fandom members, not us here at EQD.

    Have some headlines:

    • Friendship is Magic Season 10 like Dragon Ball Super
    •  Has My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Created a Renaissance in Animation?
    • What Will G6 Look Like?
     And go read them below! 
  • Discussion: How Long Have You Been Here?



    At the risk of being a bit meta here, let me ask, how long have you been viewing this site?  Were you in the fandom for a signifigant amount of time before you viewed it?  And another question, what is your favorite part of this Blog?  And if you have any input on what you'd like to see going forward, you can pop that in the comments as well.

    I've been here for ~4 years (give or take some months).  I don't participate in the comments that much maybe, but I lurk around and see what y'all are saying :P.  It was pretty much around the time I became interested in the fandom that I went here, because to my understanding that was what people did.  I did appriciate the condensement of fandom content here.  It was always a good pooling point for content to look into on my own time.

    What about you?  Anything interesting thoughts to share?  Discuss Below.

  • The Rise of The Living Tombstone - He's on Tour In the USA Now!

    So many of the horse famous have fallen out of whatever they were well known for over the years, from musicians to artists, regular jobs gobble them up and we never hear from them again. A few make it huge though, and The Living Tombstone is one of them!

    Ever since popping up around the start of the fandom, his Youtube channel has skyrocketed in interested, starting with entirely pony originals and remixes. Eventually he started breaking into other fandoms like Five Nights at Freddies and pretty much anything memeworthy at all, with loads of original songs sprinkled throughout. One thing is for sure, he never stopped. His channel is a flood of content and always following whatever everyone is into at any given moment.

    And with that, he's now on tour in the USA with loads of shows already sold out. If you want to see him and his band in person, they have a list of locations around the USA over here. Check out a video below for what this looks like!
