Helping Brony Artists Grow

I suppose I should wake up, yes? We've been talking about how endless and wonderful the morning is for the past week, and I can't help but think... what about dinner? Well, for those of you still wanting to load up on pancakes, I can't help but point out the Wrap-Up blog, full of cakey goodness!

Speaking of cakey goodness, now that the morning is over, I think it's time to move on through our day. So naturally, what comes after Breakfast, but:

A Pony on a Picnic / Making Lunch

Is it still too cold for a picnic? It might be a little too cold where I live, as there's still snow on the ground. Not that snow would stop me from having a picnic if I really wanted one. So, an unorthodox picnic, perhaps, in the late winter, but still. I wouldn't put it past a Pegasus to have a rainy day picnic with their own personal cloud free paradise right in the center, either...

Okay, maybe a picnic is off the table. (The picnic table! *rimshot* ...nevermind) What about just a normal lunch? A Hay Smoothie? Maybe a dandelion sandwich? What's on the menu for the mid-day meal?

So, once you've taken your afternoon snack, submit your art to our external submitter The username remains artist and the password is twilight. And have a pleasant afternoon!

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.

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!

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
Wait whens NATG 4?
hip-indeed Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It's already been going on for a few days --…
Jezendar Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm afraid that we will not be, no. DeviantART actually has a limit on how many folders a single group can have, and we've hit that limit numerous times already. (This is why many of our folders are now labeled "Weeks 25-30".) The group didn't make folders for the NATG 3 either, which I do believe was for the same reason (I wasn't yet an admin at that point).
hip-indeed Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
That's really too bad, I dunno any other way to actually get out art out there and no one really looks at the multitudes that get submitted to EqD itself, but this group had a smaller commuity that helped the art we did for the ATG spread.  Regardless I understand the reasonings, I... guess?   Except not really since one (or potentially now 2 due to what Phoe's said about breaking it up into two half-months per year) new folder per YEAR shouldn't be an issue among the 52 others for the group's themes, but /shrug.

I'm very sorry for not telling you that I was going to be inactive for more than a year. Long story short, I went into hiding at DrawQuest and school activities were making me busy. I hope I can participate the weekly prompts again after NATG IV! :)
Jezendar Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
That's certainly not a problem. Membership in the group doesn't expire due to inactivity or anything, after all. :iconpinkiewinkplz:

And we'll be looking forward to seeing whatever you may create for the group in the future.

Just wondering… is the anniversary party picture from last year still going to happen? 
Hazzdawg Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
There's a thought! The mod who made the last anniversary picture and took all the submissions for the most recent one is no longer with us, but I shall get in touch to see if this is a thing that can happen ^_^
cobralash Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014
Ok, awesome!
ANDandAmpersand Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I want in on this week
DazDroid1995 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
So what happened to all the content submitted in weeks before 148 as the don't appear to be in the "Previous Weeks" folder, were the removed to make room or to decease the number of folders, or was it a accident?

On a other note whats the rules about submitting to weeks gone past?

One last thing to the admins, your list of previous themes is not up to date…
also just a idea could you maybe have the week numbers next to the themes in the list.

O and I hope everyones having a great day. :wave:
Jezendar Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
If you open up the Previous Weeks folder, you'll see a list of folders for the past week along the left side of the screen.  Do note that many of the early weeks are in condensed folders, each containing five weeks worth of submissions instead of one.  The reason for that is because deviantART actually has a limit on how many folders a single group can create, and we hit that limit some time ago.

Submissions to past themes are perfectly acceptable, and merely need to follow the same rules that the current theme submissions would follow.

And yeah, the previous themes list is badly in need of updating.

And you have a great day as well!  :iconhappytsplz:

My heart cringes to see so little of participation nowadays
aoshistark Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2014
Hey everypony! I am interested in attending BronyCon again this year at the Baltimore Convention Center and thanks to a chaotic summer I had little time to plan. I am looking around for anyone in need of another hotel room-mate for the event. I live pretty close to the center but not close enough to simply walk, so I would like to secure lodging if possible for convenience sake. If anyone needs another body to fill a hotel room please reply. I'd love to hang out with everyone at the con again this year.
