Prompt: Draw a pony graduating / Draw a pony party.

Welp, this wraps up another month of ATG-- it was certainly a fun time yet again :^)
I learned some helpful things about coloring and I'm getting more and more comfortable with sketching now, which is exciting for me~
I did have my ups and downs through this event though-- I think my biggest problem was that I tried to work on other projects on the side during it, which ultimately just ended up having me rushing some of the prompts more than I should have and releasing art that I wasn't entirely happy with. That generally didn't help me morale wise~
That being said, for the last week I decided to focus solely on the prompts, and I found myself enjoying it a lot more, as well as putting out pieces that I was genuinely happy with. So while I regret starting out the way I did, I'm glad I was able to finish strong. Can't even really blame myself too much for the start either, since ATG was supposed to be something I did on the side while the other projects were meant to be the forefront of what I was working on-- that kinda got flipped around ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Huge thank you to all of my friends who I consistently interacted with throughout this event-- I loved to see the fantastic art you all put out, and it was really great to hear all the kind words and feedback you had for my own art. And another huge thank you to everyone who commented and supported my art through this whole thing-- it means a lot to me, and I sincerely appreciate all of your support <3

That's about it for now-- I'll return to my regularly scheduled 1-2 sentence descriptions shortly~
I'm excited to work on some bigger projects again, so you can stay tuned for those.. well, eventually 8^)

EDIT: Forgot some stuff, but I just kinda fixed how RD had no wings-- not sure how I missed that the whole time. Oh, also AJ freckles, but I forget those all the time. I know that Fluttershy and Twilight don't have wings either, but I'm not gonna go back and change that. Let's just say they're behind their hooves or something.

Yesssssssssss, a wonderful finisher piece for ATG <3 I really loved all your contributions towards ATG & the amazing, yet super brilliant also along with that. You've truly improved with your art sooooo much creating lively pieces with lively characters & interactions. The detail that you see within upon look at it. It's really sweet to hear takeaways from ATG & hearing that during ATG you realized a priority-shift or in the sense the ethic put into each prompt was solely focused upon & that put the care & love & genius kind of elements within the art that you posted. I certainly never got tired of seeing a prompt from you daily as it had your adorable style of ponies along with the gorgeous details of fur, shading, color along with prompts that made me stare in awe or find realllllllllly hilarious. You did a wonderful job for ATG & always look forward to seeing your art.
OHSHIT I FORGET TO EVEN TALK ABOUT THE ART ITSELF THAT I REALLY,REALLY,REALLY,REALLY LOVE. OK GIVE ME A SEC FOR THAT TOOO.

Ahhhh, ponies having genuine fun as depicted here is what I love a lot, you really see each pony in their element & I love how you represent that. Dash hovering in the air & having a good time, drinking of course haha. All their expressions are perfect & it captures the moment very well with Twi really concentrated on dancing & Rarity in here too. I love how each pair has their own fitting interactions that really conjures up a kind "story" in a sense that's going on & makes it even more entertaining. Also those little touches in the background with the shadows & silhouettes of the ponies give perspective & really spread the focus on the 6 of them while pertaining to the image of a party. The streamers & confetti of course to heh, all those little details are what you do best <3 Also the strands of hair that they have kind of showing & the messy manes really fit within the context & really enhance the "just having fun" kind of tone in this one & really comes together greatly ahhhhh. Gosh, I love Pinkie & Fluttershy's interaction in here omggggggg, your favorite duo heh. But yessssss, super adorable, Pinkie's wink & Fluttershy with her shy pose & expression, goes sooo well togerther omg my heart. Overall this just has a great atmosphere that really puts you within the setting & makes you smile when you first see it, really great job with this one. Definitely one of my favs out of all of your amazing art ahhhhh. I'd totally frame this or put it up on my wall heh.
But yesssss, you did such a great job with ATG & your art in general, <33333

(omg you're getting flamed for no wings in the comments, dw i read descriptions)

Heyyyyy, thanks so much, it was a lot of fun to put this one together! I'm really glad that you enjoyed my pictures for ATG as well-- it's always nice to see that other people can enjoy them as much as they do, even some of the ones that I wasn't as happy with myself. It's certainly uplifting for me, and it helps to keep me going <3

Haha, yeah-- ponies gotta party all over the place here.
Rainbow and Applejack getting drinks together is a necessity. And of course Twilight, the dancing queen, is too, along with Rarity, the runner up for that position-- I'm sure they're having a blast~
Yep yep, the silhouettes were a nice way to kinda cheat the sense of having a crowd in there, haha.
You're totally right on that too, I always love to see Pinkie and Flutters together :^)
Thank you once again, I'm really glad that you liked this final ATG picture!

And thanks so much for always being very supportive and friendly to me throughout this event (well you kinda are all the time actually ^^), it's always a joy to read through the comments you have for me~ And it was a pleasure to see some of your own art through the month, your cute ponies are so good, I love them-- great job on making it through ATG yourself <3 

(Aye, thanks for reading through the descriptions-- and it's alright, I could fix it if I wanted to but.. I don't, so that's on me :^) )
