Pencils down, everypony!
That's it! Week one of the Artist Training Grounds Alumni challenge is over. How did you do? I still had barely enough time because I'm awful at planning. Trufax: I wrote my dissertation in five days. By the end I was so strung out on caffeine I was apparently pacing around our flat's kitchen mumbling. Good times!
Well folks, you can consider the monocle well and truly propelled across the room. We've had 120 submissions from you for the main theme. That's amazing! I wasn't sure if folks were going to get behind this little venture, so seeing so many brilliant pony pics trickling in over the past week has been a complete pleasure. Thanks for taking the time to pony-up!
There's some amazing pictures in this bunch! Well done to everyone who contributed this week. From the mini masterpieces to the quickest little sketch every one is a commitment of your time to improving your art. Congratulations!
We've had a ton of submissions from some members this week. Well done! I've decided since this is our first week, and there were so many themes to play with, that I'd just put them all in! Well done you diligent bronies!
Just a quick word on the next theme. We'll keep the theme announcements over on DeviantArt and separate from the weekly wrap ups. There will be a bit of a gap between the wrap-up posting and the theme going up. Fret not! 'Tis all part of the plan.
So, without further prevarication; pictures of ponies...
UPDATE: Forgot to mention that this week is for catching up on any previous ATG theme. The new themes are now up on our main page at DeviantArt!
