For Equestria Dailys Newbie Artist Training Grounds III, Day 29: "Draw a pony crossing the finish line/Draw a pony making the grade"

My tribute to all the participants of the NATG III. There were so much great drawings and some styles I really liked. So my idea was to let all of them pass this finish line together. But yeah, it's pretty hard to reproduce all the styles. Especially with all the digital drawing I wasn't able to put them in here. So see the reduced result of a formerly enormous intention.

In the end I chose some om my favorites and/or styles that I felt I was able to reproduce (although they don't reach the originals of course). I hope it is ok for you to run over this ugly lawn. And I hope everyone not included here doesn't feel upset or unhappy. That wouldn't be what I wanted. :(

Twilight Sparkle: Well, my own way to draw.
Fluttershy: Reference to the cute chubby drawings by :iconlegeden:
Vinyl: Reference to the awesome Vinyl/Octavia/Octamom/Octadad drawings by :iconbobthedalek:
Derpy: Reference to the personal and appealing drawing style of :iconshady-jade-sky:
Stick Pony: Reference to the Stick Ponies by Darkon Shadows (great that you stuck to it all the time)
Rainbow Dash: Reference to the drawings by :iconabronyaccount:
Applejack: Reference to the nice style used by :iconwhatsapokemon:

I wish I could have included way more ponys by way more participants. Also I wish I would have the eloquence of Phoe to write some words everyone in the NATG deserves. But it's already 6:30 AM here, so my brain is somewhere between sleep and dahgsnmehghda. The good thing: The bakery downstairs has just opened. Time to get breakfast.

Edit: :iconphoekun: , you are so random (actually you are great, I'm random today). ;D Thank you very much for the header. *hugs* Crossed my very own finish line with this. :) Time to get second breakfast.

I wish I got a closer look at this the day you submitted this because it is seriously such a great idea and was VERY well executed. It definitely deserved to be the header for the post just by the sheer spirit of the piece let alone the great use of other people's styles. Great work on this and on all your other work as well =)!

Thanks. :) After drawing fav.me/d6m2qo1 I felt ready to draw another multi pony picture. And for me the idea/spirit is indeed the one thing that outweighs the simple background and the fact that I couldn't include everyone I planned.

0.0 This idea is so great, and your drawing is so great, and -I can't even describe how awesome this is!

In my opinion it's the best thing to come out of the ATG this year.
There were so many amazing pictures, and everybody learning and gaining experience is very cool of course - but seriously - I love this more than bad puns!!

Thank you very much, I feel really flattered! :)

I personally wouldn't claim my drawing as the best one, there were just so much really great pictures and ideas in the course of this event. And they were the inspiration for this picture. To see so many different styles, all the diversion, the good works in different ways I told myself: I think, we all cross this finish line together. There were good pcitures, better and not so good of course, but everyone deserves some kudos for their spirit. I think, It's just a good conclusion of the NATG III. :)

And actually, I love puns, the good ones, the bad ones and the ugly ones! :p But thanks again. I'm glad to give you such a good ending of the ATG. :)

...and there I was trying to work out which of my pieces you pieced together! XD

I really do like how this was put together, and it was a brilliant surprise to see my style of Vinyl running in there when it appeared on EQD! :D

Thank you. It was a brilliant surprise for me that it appeared as header at all. :D

And of course you had to be part of this as your drawings are funny, stylish and were always there. (I only struggled a bit because I couldn't find a normally standing Vinyl at all, they are almost always sitting in your comics. :D )

Btw hope your moving did go well. :)

The move went better than I expected, actually :)

It also surprises me the fact that I hardly ever draw ponies standing, but I suppose it stems from the fact they all used to stand on their hind legs behind a convenient foreground table during my early drawings! :P

Actually I have to admit that it felt a little bit odd to draw Vinyl moving on all four legs as it is just so normal for me to see her sitting or standing on the hind legs now. :D


Good to hear this about your move. Hope you'll have fun furnishing the new rooms. I always like the room for new ideas then. :)
