Helping Brony Artists Grow
...shall keep me from HELPING. Because that's why I do best! Or try to at least. Some things I do better than others. And some things are a work in progress. Like keeping quiet.  But that's okay! Because some of you ARE good at playing the Quiet Game, and you can see them all over on this week's Wrap-Up blog!

Is everypony ready? This week's them is inspired by the box that the other mods duct taped me up in last week!

A Delivery Pony!

MAIL'S HERE! And I do so love mail, sir. It means someone, somewhere thought about you just enough to send you something - a piece of themselves that they made with their own hooves - something so simple yet so heartwarming as a postcard - thinking of you. A letter from a long distance friend. A get well soon card! A final notice before pending legal action of outstanding debt from Ponyville clinic! Uh... Oh. I should probably look at responding to that last one first.

You can deliver boxes, you can deliver letters, you can deliver pianos! By land, by sea, by air, by magic! How will you send yours?

Please post a copy of all submissions to our external submitter, username artist, password twilight

Go on, let somepony know that you care!

This duct tape sure is sticky...

Happy arting!

Ohhhhh, so the theme changes at midnight Sunday night EST now instead of 3AM EST like it was on the west coast before?  So I just stayed up extra late finishing my piece this week for nothing~  Oh well~

It said to upload anyway and ask the admins nicely, so there ya go... S'not a big deal, though, I'm just now getting back into doing these on time the last few weeks for the first time in ages, and I just did a crappy quick pic this week at the very end like a silly filly..  But it's up to you~

Ermagawd... I just sent my join request and realized that the last deviation I've uploaded kinda classifies for the current theme :3

Submitted a join request. In the mean time, does annyone have any tips for modeling a 3-D pony? Also, how the heck are you supposed to draw w/ a mouse!? Blows my mind.
Hazzdawg Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
We have a few modellers and animators kicking around, though I will admit to not being one of them. Your best bet is perhaps to hop on the IRC chatroom and see who can talk the talk, or provide guides and references and tips depending upon what software you're using.

You can find a tutorial on how to do that here!…

As for drawing with a mouse? Practice and denial! ^_^ I strongly recommend a tablet, though I know of several people who can create amazing and wonderful arts with just their mouse.

I may be wrong, but didn't the anniversary of this group recently happen? 
hip-indeed Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
iirc wasn't it made in july 2011?  after the original eqg atg event that ran through the end of june?  so it's probably... right around today-ish honestly haha

For this week's theme [helping out] I did a guide on how I draw ponies.
Would I submit it to this week's theme or to the folder for tutorials?
Thanks for reading, and here is the guide if it helps
Hazzdawg Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
That's so thoughtful of you! I really have a thing for watching art come together from a blank canvas to finished product, its not just satisfying to watch but really gives nice insight to how an artist pulls things together.

A piece can only be in one folder at a time, so I'll let you decide where you'd best like it. I've no qualms about shifting this across to the guides folder after next week if you like.
Catseye-View Featured By Owner May 3, 2014  Student General Artist
Thanks a lot! I think I'd rather have it in the guides folder since that's what I intended it to be :33
Invidlord Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
That is adorable and helpful!  Feel free to submit it to this week's theme (and to the tutorial folder as well if you'd like!), as it was definitely done in the spirit of helping.
Catseye-View Featured By Owner May 3, 2014  Student General Artist
Thank you :D
Tomixander94 Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I can't submit to the group. It just shows an error: "Sorry, you do not have permission to submit artwork to this group."
Jezendar Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist

That's odd.  What folder were you trying to submit to?

Tomixander94 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I didn't even get to the groups. I couldn't find any other way so I tried to add it via the "Add to a Group" button in the deviation page. When I typed the group name in the field and pressed "Check" it just showed the aforementioned message.
Jezendar Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Potentially stupid question, but are you actually a member of the group?  I took a look through the member list and didn't notice you there, but I could have simply missed you.
Also, sorry about not responding to you more quickly.  I've been rather busy as of late, unfortunately.
