• Newbie Artist Training Grounds XIV: Day 21


    And with another Makeup Day done and dusted, we are now in the home stretch as we tackle the last 10 prompts for this year's NATG. It's always crazy just how fast this event goes by, but all good things have to eventually come to an end, yeah?

    For today, we managed to get 48 ponies which brings us up to 1233 ponies in total! Let's see how close we can get to 1500 everyone! Keep up that amazing work!

    As we return to our regular prompts, I was inspired for the day 21 prompts by my artist friends. Often as an artist, you'll run into the many highs and lows of the craft, either being really proud of your work or feeling as if you're in a rut. I've even seen it to a degree in the NATG chat from day to day! So to take notice of those joys and sorrows for today's prompt you'll Draw a pony following their dreams / Draw a pony feeling defeated.

    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.

    Ponies invading the real world is always fun! We've got a new giant Friendship is Magic mural appearing at a high school in Wisconsin. I remember when we used to get these all the time. It's good to still see them in 2024.

  • Adorable Knockoff (?) Sitting Fluttershy Plushie Appears on Aliexpress

    Usually knockoff pony merchandise is ridiculous looking or dodges copyright by a hair, but for whatever reason pony plushies have gotten a lot of really good bootleg love over the years. We don't have confirmation that this is a knockoff and not a leak or something, but these adorable sitting Fluttershy's have popped up over on Aliexpress.

    She's pretty pricy though, clocking in at $90. Someone posted a few shots of her which I'll include below.

    As always, buyer beware when purchasing stuff off sites like this. It tends to take a long time to ship and you never really know exactly what kind of quality you will receive.

  • Morning Discussion #3414


    I hear this treatment is particularly effective. What grumpy pony isn't cured by Izzy's happy demeanor?

    Good morning everyone and happy Saturday! Get a chance to sleep in a little?
