I came back from vacation with a head full of fluff and ooze, which is impacting my ability to brainstorm the next issue.  I might just start drawing and let the plot sort itself out later, but for now I don't have an ETA for a start time. Sorry.
The Pone Wars 7.27: To Be Continued
And so we come to the end of another issue, and I honestly have never been so relieved to get to the end of a storyline.  While these two issues have been a lot of fun, they've also been nightmarish to plot and pace and ensure that everything that needs to be said is said (and I'm sure some things have gotten lost in the crush). I'm going to try to rein in the mashing-up with the next arc so I don't have quite as many unrelated plot threads to cram together.

That said, the next arc may be a little while in coming.  I have a Hearth's Warming poster that will go out tomorrow, and then I'm taking time off until January - I'm not even going to think about the comic over my break (unless I get a really good idea that I have to jot down before I forget it, of course).  Hopefully by the time I come back to it I'll have some fresher ideas and it won't feel quite so much like a chore.  Y'all please don't forget about me during the hiatus :)

The Pone Wars 7.26: Retroboding
I like how this page turned out. It's one of the few that I've made the scenery entirely without reference images. Plus it's all ominous and doom-laden, which are always my favorite pages :)

It was always my intent that Rarity be the one who originally designed the Nightmare Moon (based on the totally pointless movie development of the Death Star being originally a Geonosian design), which is why she eventually ends up wired into its targeting system. So I've been building to this image for a very long time.  Rarity may be best pony, but she's never been a paragon in this story.

Luna has a tragic backstory about a lost apprentice which I thought I'd explained some time ago in one of the notes, but a search turns up nothing so I guess I haven't actually explained it anywhere that anyone can see it. I have mentioned the Umbrum Wars before, approximately 750 years before the current present day, in which the Umbrum tricked a princess into releasing them from their extradimensional prison, corrupted her into an overlord of darkness, and through her went on a rampage that almost consumed the galaxy. That princess had been Luna's apprentice, and is the one who both killed Fluttershy and took Rainbow Dash's wing. Since then, Luna's role in the education of potential alicorns has been self-limited to teaching younglings the basics of magic.

The hardest part of this page was the Huntress' hair. My old model only had it flipped the other way, so I had to redraw it as best I could without a reference.  I probably could have found a shot of Flutterbat with her hair flip on this side if I'd gone digging through the actual episode, but I don't really like doing that if I can avoid it.  I should point out that the creepy, angry, occasionally murderous Fluttershy that we've seen so far in this series has been her without a little voice in her head telling her to do bad things. The times, as they say, are a-changing...

The Pone Wars 7.25: Clear as Smooze
I should emphasize that Rarity isn't just making this stuff up: as she pointed out, Skywishes should have become a princess years ago, and the fact that she hasn't yet is definitely suspicious (SUSPICIOUS!!). Of course, there's no hard science to when an apprentice becomes an alicorn; some require a few decades of training, some only take a few years, and a couple have done it without being trained at all, but nearly 60 years as an apprentice is unprecedented.  And we've established that Rarity only sees what she wants to see. Despite their loud and violent disagreements, it's never even occurred to her that forthright, honest Applejack might actually be the evil mastermind; whereas Twilight, who forgets basic friendship lessons any time the episode's plot requires it, doesn't have a colossal blind spot obscuring her behavior.

Of course, Rarity has a few skeletons in her own armoire, some of which may start coming out in the next issue.

I spent a huge amount of time (relatively speaking) turning Luna's chariot into a speeder, and you hardly get to see it :(

Curious, do you do commissions?

I haven't done any, which is not to say that I don't.  I'd certainly consider anything asked of me, but my available time and energy are at an all-time low right now, so I'd be careful about what I chose to commit to.

I'm currently just asking. I look for interesting artist to do comics with (I'm a comic writer) and since I've seen a lot of your series around I figured I'd asked out of curiosity. If your busy at the moment that's fine, I'm in no rush. At the moment I was just asking if you did or were interested.

I'm the exact opposite of busy as of today, and I'd like to stay that way for a couple weeks at least. If you ask again near the end of January I'll hopefully be in a better position :)

Don't rush - I won't have room for any extras in the next issue, but the one after I might :)
