Hey, there! Watch me pull a Blog Post out of my hat! Nothing up my sleeve! And, Tad-oop! That's no blog post. Must have been the wrong hat. Well, let's try that again. Here's something you'll really enjoy: Wrap Up Blog!

All these magical scrolls are neat and all, but they're just a bit utilitarian for my tastes. There's just no artistry behind them, they're all 'presto' this and 'kadabra' that. For my tastes, I think it's better to sit down and write up some good old fashioned:

Pony Poetry / A Pony Reciting

From odes to ancient kings to romantic sonnets, I've always been inspired by poetry. Conjure up images of a pony upon the road less taken, or battling the ominous Jabberwocky! Consider your favorite poem, and to quote the pegasi, nevermore.

Of course, reading a poem is only half the fun. The best poems are shared, red aloud to friends or a small audience. You've heard of a poetry jam right? Or is that poetry slam? Well, regardless, strap yourself in, grab a mic, and lets get symbolic with it!

Once you've properly prepared your poetic picture, please post it promptly to our Deviant Art folder, as well as our external submitter for inclusion in the weekly Blogger post. The username is artist, and the password is twilight. How does a pony applaud at a poetry jam anyways?

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 ^ ^;;;;

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...

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.

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

Can't submit art for Week 268.  Folder does not show up when submitting art.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Can we use a part of another artist draw like a vector character or a background?

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.
