Star Mares 3.3: Specter of the Pastern

The title of this issue gave me some trouble, since I couldn't find enough good lines in the movie that could easily be turned into pithy pony puns, so I had to yoink a book title.  And even as late as last night I was still debating whether it was better as 'pastern' or 'pasture', but the anatomical term won out.

This set is a real headache to work with.  It has no consistent scale because of the need to fit the pony characters to the frame, and in some shots the huts look too big at the same relative size and sometimes they look too small, and sometimes they block too much of the forest background, so I end up having to adjust to make it look right for that panel regardless of continuity.  I think I can get away with it because of the size differential between the characters and the fact that it's supposed to look a bit haphazard and organic, but I'm still not happy about it (although it's not my absolute least favorite set - that would be the Zonama Sekot jungle).

I don't recall whether I mentioned in issue 3.1 that non-unicorn princess trainees can learn to use magic without their alicrowns, to a limited degree and with a lot of practice (that's how Skywalker was able to mind-trick Bib Fortuna).  Lifting something as heavy as even a small poid would be a lot more taxing than Luke lifting 3PO in the movie, though.

Oh this will be quite good, can't wait to see what mischief Cookie and Spring get into when they go to the village.
Yeah, those do look like rather large lemurs. Or rather little ponies. But such are the demands of art.
