For todays Asian challenge (and to continue from yesterdays challenge)

Draw any group of ponies settup up a booth at a convention/fair. It can be a science fair, or a big research covnention, or any kind of convention!

Due to scale, you have 45 minutes to draw with 15 minutes to submit. Good luck!

Today’s American Challenge and official relaunch of the blog in it’s new form is…

Rainbow Power Berry Punch!

Our first challenge previously was Berry Punch… so why not power her up for the first one this time around!?

Design your own Rainbow Power Berry Punch!

You’ve got 45 minutes to create followed by 15 minutes to submit! Have fun~

hey I see you guys are updating the deviantart, and you mention having a full archive somewhere bu I can’t find it. where would that be? or is it private? :3

It’s in progress. You can see what’s there so far under the ‘Archive’ folder in the group.

Also… One Hour Reminder!

So we can no longer ask questions here or see anything on Tumblr?

Not quite.

We will still post challenge prompts here and the challenge runner may also post the art here as well… but it won’t be our primary gallery and they aren’t obligated to.

And questions should be left as comments/messages on the DA group or sent to http://30minchallenge.deviantart.com/ for promtest response as this is no longer our primary page.

Official Move/Restructuring Of 30MinChallenge

It’s tragic that we have to do this but after weeks of absolutely nothing from the Tumblr staff on this issue we are officially moving the challenge blog to the holding blog we have had going.

That means that all 30MinChallenge activities will be returning to one central Tumblr blog, yes. No more challenges or challenge related posts at asksolarflair or asainponyartchallenge.

This move does come with changes however. Tumblr is no longer our centralized base of operations.

We will still use Tumblr as a method of art submission and possibly as a gallery but we have learned that it can not be trusted as a primary source, as I’m sure you can all understand.

Questions, Challenges, and so on, will now primarily be handled at http://30minchallenge-group.deviantart.com/

If you for some reason have something against Deviant Art then we are sorry. Hopefully our tumblr will still keep you up to date with notices of challenges taking place and so on.

NSFW art is still accepted as it has been but it will be going straight to Derpibooru if it’s too provacative for DA and both NSFW and anonymous art should be submitted here to this tumblr.

The Rules and FAQ pages have some light updates for you to peruse should you wish.

Hopefully this will only mean good things for us! It sucks to have to restart but in a way we are branching out and may attract new artists. Also we shouldn’t have to deal with nasty crippling security breaches like the one that bit us on the butt.

As a bonus http://30minchallenge.deviantart.com/ page has a chat box and poll system we will be using! Feel free to chat at your heart’s desire and look forward to polls!

We are also uploading our backlog of art from years on Tumblr to DA and Derpibooru right now. Sadly this has to be done picture by picture and will take quite some time… but it’ll be nicely organized and tagged in the end! Consider it an opportunity to really check out a bunch of art you may not have ever looked at before as we plod along at uploading it all.

New beginnings! New opportunities! Huzzah!

Join us in rebuilding even bigger and better!

Looking forward to the restoration. I’m not sure what the supposed hacker’s purpose is, but it’s nice to see the current staff up and recovering.

To be honest, we’re not even sure. Maybe they’re bored, maybe they have some kind of motive/ill-will to the blog or the mods themselves, we don’t know and probably won’t. But yes, we are trying to recover as best as we can under the circumstances.
