Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, and since we've no place to go, head over to the Wrap Up Blog! Just so as long as you love me so, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow~

I may be biased, but the Winter is my favorite time of the year. So for now, I'm enjoying it, but I'll be sad to see it go. As a result, I'm staying up late to enjoy every moment of it. Of course, that uh, leads to a few other problems:

A Pony Staying Up too Late / A Wired Pony

Okay, okay. Maybe I should go to bed a little earlier... but there's just so much to do! So much to see! So much I want to get done! And sheesh, is it midnight already? When did that happen? Maybe... maybe just another hour or so, and I'll head to bed... or another two... three? What time is it?

There is a way to deal with this problem of course. Go to bed early Caffeine! Or sugar! I mean, whichever gets you the most bang for your bits. Coffee, soda, cupcakes, cookies, anything really. Maybe go out and jog or fly a few miles! Get that heart beating and keep yourself awake! We can do this! We can do anything! Just you know... not fall asleep. Is this insomnia, or a caffeine high? Why can't I blink?

Once your coffee pot is empty, but before you head to bed at last, remember to upload your art submission to our DA Gallery, as well as to our external submitter. The username remains artist, and the password is twilight. I think I can last... at least another... *Yawn*... few... days....

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.
