Helping Brony Artists Grow
My Little Pony, My Little Pony
Isn't the world a lovely place
My Little Pony, My Little Pony
Everywhere you go, a smiling face...


Oh, sorry.  Got a little distracted there, remembering the original My Little Pony special.  I'm actually old enough to have seen that when it originally aired, and while I'm not sure if I truly did so, I certainly have seen re-airings of it during the 80's.  Having two younger sisters will have that effect.  But you're not here to listen to me ramble about past decades, you're here to see what's been produced this week.  And you can readily do so here, on the Wrap Up Blog.

It's actually been 30 years since what is now known as Rescue at Midnight Castle was first released; Monday actually marks the anniversary.  And while the word 'Brony' may be a new thing, the fandom has been growing and developing through all the decades since then.  We've got a fair bit of culture built up by now, which grants inspiration for the new theme, at least in terms of it's title:

A Cultural Pony / A Cultured Pony

Show us ponies of culture, whether it be a foreign (or local) culture from around the world, or the cultured ponies of high society.  Or perhaps subcultures are more your thing, such as goth ponies, or ardent fandoms; that's something we ourselves are a part of after all.  Or perhaps you may want to go with some interpretation that's really out there, such as a bacterial culture.  Whatever it is you decide to go with, make sure to submit it to us here in the group gallery, and on the external submitter.  As usual, the username is artist, and the password would be twilight.

As a final note, I still think Tirac is one of the better 80's cartoon villains.

I can't submit to the group. It just shows an error: "Sorry, you do not have permission to submit artwork to this group."

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

...?
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.

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.

We actually have a number of tutorials made by various people in the Guides and Other Helpful Things folder.  This includes both basic tutorials on drawing ponies, as well as some that go into detail on specific elements.

It's not letting me submit to this week's theme. There's no plus sign next to the folder, and the theme isn't on the list when I try to submit it from the deviation page.

Oh shoot!  Thanks for pointing that out, seems we set the permissions wrong on the folder!  My bad!  It should be set to accept deviations now!  My humblest apologies!

So I submitted my pic for this weeks theme to the external submitter, but when I go to view it's "this Week's gallery," it doesn't show up, so I'm not sure if it actually went through or not...

:iconarcum89:
Ok so upon quick inspection it seems to be working right now. Try to resubmit it and I will ask around to see what could have caused that.

Just tried it again, it still doesn't seem to be going through to the right gallery because it's still not showing up.

:iconarcum89:
That is very odd because I don't see it anywhere. I just tried it again and it worked... When you submit a drawing it should say "Congratulations you are submission ______________!" or something remotely close to that. Sorry to trouble you but could you let me know what the message says when you try to send it? It may give me a clue on the problem at hand.

Ok well I looked into it, It had gone through, however it went to last week instead for some reason. I'll look into it a bit and see what I can do. Sorry about that. I'll give you more insight when I know whats going on.

Im actually looking for someone to make a pony character reference sheet for me (A WHOLE lot of them!) 

Would someone respond? I will be paying so don't worry!

(I am unaware if this is not allowed in the comment section! It is alright if this is removed, just a comment telling me not to do it again so I know is fine :D )

Don't want to seem like I'm nagging or anything, but I'm getting curious; are we EVER going to see that final Birthday bash pic? :P

Its still in the process of being drawn. Its still planned to be done, its just life and work getting in the way.  We cant give you a date or a time due to these issues however sorry.

Understood, and completely understanding of that too, it's just been awhile since I had heard anything on it.
