Helping Brony Artists Grow
I should warn you, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm ang-oh wait. Wrong kind of green. Well, if your pony is feeling a little jealous, or just a different shade of green, spend a moment looking over this week's Wrap Up Blog.

Of course, jealousy can be a natural feeling, it happens to everypony from time to time. And then, there's some ponies who just can't help it. And some who are unjustly called out as being selfish, greedy, jealous meanies. Yeah, that's right, the proverbial catburds themselves, this week's theme is to draw:

A Griffon / A Grump Pony

Catburds. Or, as you may know them, Griffons, have an unfair reputation of being harsh, hostile, and all-around unpleasant. This is only partially true. Many of them are harsh, hostile, and all-around unpleasant. But many others are quite dapper, friendly, and incredibly, incredibly fluffy. Just look at those wings. So Fluffy.

It's not just Griffons who can be so mean and nasty. Plenty of ponies can be officially placed into the grump column. Be they grumpy about the night being somewhat less than eternal, about the quality of their showmanship in comparison to more talented magic users, or even about how unequal cutie marks can be, grumps are grumps. So forgive them for wanting a little more attention, for trapping your friends, or for stealing your cutie mark... on second thought, don't forgive that last one.

So, griffons and grumps alike, submit your art to our gallery, and then to the external submitter for next week's wrap-up blog! The user name is artist and the password is twilight. Have you hugged a catburd lately? (So very fluffy!)

Do you just need to request to join the group to be accepted in the group? Because I'm confused

when will we see pic's in An Eagerly Waiting Pony folder as I submit one to that folder too?
Jezendar Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Submissions become visible in the folders once an admin has a chance to accept the submission. This can sometimes take a bit, due to all of us needing to work for a living and all. But we try to make sure it doesn't take too long.
GreenFly1993 Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ok I just want to know you are all doing a great job! ^-^

How can I join?
Jezendar Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Pressing the Join Our Group button in the Group Info bar on the left is all that's necessary to join.
We're not exactly a picky group membership-wise. :iconpinkiewinkplz:
zunicornnation Featured By Owner Edited Jan 27, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Have you ever had a background (not background pony, but one of the settings of the show) challenge?
Jezendar Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
That is not something that we have done, at least so far as I know.
meiyeezhu Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2015
Do you allow humanization in this group?
Invidlord Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
If it encourages you to draw, sure! We obviously want to stay SFW and such, but if humanized versions of ponies that inspire you to get out your pen/pencils/digital editor and create, we are all for it!
hip-indeed Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Are you guys opening up folders for NATG 4 entries like you have for previous ones?
DazDroid1995 Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
