Alright, stick out your tongue and say 'Aaaaaaaa'. Now, lift one hoof off the ground and recite the alphabet backwards. Now, hop up and down and sing the Crystal Empire Anthem. What do you mean I don't know what I'm doing? I'll have you know I'm a professional! A professional what? A professional bowler! *Rimshot* Of course, the real professionals can be found with their fake professionals posted to our Wrap Up Blog. Just couldn't resist.

Speaking of Doctors, don't you just hate being sick? It's the worst, just that feeling that you can't get anything done. It might be the best time to get a little help from a friend, but there's never a bad time to reach out, to lift someone up, or to just be:

A Supporting Pony / Getting a Boost

Getting support can come in a lot of forms, from a friend helping steady a ladder, to just a sympathetic ear to help listen through the worst of times. Friendship can be an invaluable aid, and just being there can be support beyond comprehension. Take the time to support a friend.

That kind of support can do more than simply aid a friend, a real friend can lift a pony up beyond where they could ever go on their own. Give somepony your aid, work to push them higher than they could ever go alone, and you might just find that in the end, you're both in a place you could never expect. Friends helping friends is what it's all about.

If you can get by with a little help from your friends, then submit your art to our DA Gallery, and to our external submitter for the Weekly Wrap Up Blog. The username is artist, and the password is twilight. This blog does not condone using friends to defraud any organization or entity.

And another new ATG graduate here! I just submitted a request to join-this group really does look like a lot of fun and I'm glad these prompts are only weekly instead of daily like the ones were over on Equestria Daily ^ ^;;;;
SoanoS Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Urg. A new NATG graduate here. This was linke din final gallery, not entirely sure what this thing is yet.

Deadlines... They don't agree with me. Because to make it to the deadline... For the last month I haven't slept at night.
And still manage to only submit at last moments. before deadlne at 8-ish in the morning. Are they any longer here? 1 day deadline causes major issues to a slow European artist thanks to timezones.  My health can't take much more sleep deprivation. X___x

...the pain...
HalflingPony Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Fortunately, the new prompts here only come out once a week. You've got a full seven days to work on your piece and you can submit it at any convenient time during those seven days.

In fact, the "deadline" is only for if you want your work to be included in the weekly wrap up blog post. You're still allowed to submit stuff to the group after the deadline passes, even months later if you so desire. (Though I would certainly encourage you to shoot for the wrap up!)

The NATG is intense and focused on rapidly growing your artistic skills. Here we have a much more gradual pace.
SoanoS Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks, good to know. I might even join then, but it may take a little while before you start seeing subs from me.
The strict deadline of ATG was literally unhealthy for me as it was after 8 in the morning... I work slowly, and one day is way too short. I am glad there is much more flexibility now. :P

Intense doesn't even begin to...
I need at least a week to recover from sleep deprivation, poor diet and the stress.
I was completely drained.
Physically, mentally and emotionally.
If anypony would have seen me around prompt #20 they would have fleed in terror.
I looked more dead than alive at that point, and it only got worse. Much worse.
But I was able to prove myself that I can finish what I started. :P
Speedy526745 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Can't submit art for Week 268.  Folder does not show up when submitting art.
Jezendar Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
That was my fault, I'm afraid. I managed to goof something up while setting the permissions for the folder. But it should be all set now.
Speedy526745 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yep.  I can submit now.  Thank you.
Rainboom-Dash Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2016
A question - are we allowed to submit multiple drafts for a submission? I'm trying to go a bit bigger than just the ponies involved and make an entire setting.
Starkdust Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hi! I got a question, are the weekly themes limited to drawings only? I'd like to know if I can participate with sculptures.
Jezendar Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
While drawings are the most common sort of submission we get, any sort of visual art form would be accepted here.
VanillaCinnimon Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2015
I'm just getting started with this, and I have no idea what to do. Can someone please explain?
Invidlord Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Hello, Vanilla! Well, each week we offer a prompt to inspire people to draw something! It's just to encourage artists (New or Old) to with a theme and a deadline to create something on a regular basis.
VanillaCinnimon Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2015
Oh okay! Thank you so much!
sithman91 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
hello I am looking for some good artists to help me fill in some mlp line art bases, but I have no referances just their discriptions. and also...hoping to get all four drawn
Hotep-Forgefer Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2015
Can we use a part of another artist draw like a vector character or a background?
Jezendar Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I've been known to do that myself, so I certainly won't forbid others from doing it. Just make sure that your description has the proper credits for whatever you're borrowing, of course.
Hotep-Forgefer Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2015
Of course nobody will be forgotten for sure :). Thanks for the answer ^^.
Speedy526745 Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Inquiry:  Are you allowed to do more than one art piece per week?
Jezendar Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
You certainly are allowed to do that!
CarrToona Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2015  Student General Artist
can't wait for it :D
