You almost had it, a little less heat and you'll be there
Try once more, then we can take a break for a while.
================================
Celestia teaching the little one how to blaze up some scrolls. Obviously she wouldn't want little Twily teaching him how to do this, or else who knows what she'll receive.
I don't know where I'm going with this. Frankly, I was stumped by the prompt XD

Oooo this one was sitting on the backburner for too long. I completed most of this piece awhile ago, but never got around to finishing it until later. It's frustrating when it's such an effort to submit your piece at the end because you're not confident it's good enough and there's somewhere you can improve--of course I wish I better handled the angle on this one.

Sketch for Equestria Daily's Artist Training Ground IX Day 3
Prompt: Draw a Pony Seeking Guidance / A Pony in Need of Schooling

Pone Princess Celestia and baby dragon Spike from that toy company

I love the pretty smoke effect you did! It looks really nice! And points for sunbutt and Spike. They’re both pretty high on my rating list :^)

Aww thanks, neon ^w^ I actually didn't remember sunbutt being high on your list.

Draw a Pony Seeking Guidance / A Pony in Need of Schooling
This is really not a pony bein guided/schooled, but Spike is such a sweetpea I can easily overlook that little technicality.

Gotta say though, Tia must be quite brave (or oblivious to the danger, or trusting him to control his fire) for keeping her face so close to the fire.

Hee hee, I guess Spike isn't really a pony. Though I would argue that Celestia is in need of learning too, as teachers can learn so much from their students. ; ) Sooner or later she'll learn to be more cautious around fire XD

I love the sketchiness of your sketches- it's super pretty and appealing.
That smoothness in Celestia's pose is beautiful here, and the picture as a whole is really well done. Awesome stuff ^^

This is really nice.  And what a cool concept!

^w^ The whole scroll messaging has a certain magical whimsy that is quite charming.

Aaawww a cute little scenario of Celestia and Spike.
Novaintellus's avatar
Yes the juxtaposition of these two is lovely, though I regret not drawing Spike a little smaller to better portray his youth here.

Awwww!  I have never seen anyone draw this concept before.  I love this idea of Celestia teaching Spike!  :heart: This is sooooooo creative!  This is what ATG is all about!  :)

Thanks >w< I had a good friend help me brainstorm ideas and then flesh this out.
Yeah I really hope a lot of artists in ATG further develop their ideas into finished pieces. One of the goals I aspire for in every ATG piece of mine is that it can stand independently and have potential for becoming a nice piece due to how inspirational it looks.
