Well, if you're comparing this to the episode comics, yeah, there's a bit of a difference, haha. Go look at some of the single images I posted before this season started, they look much more like this.
It's simply a matter of time.
For the comics, the episode airs on Saturday, and I post the comic on Thursday. So I have 5 days, 3 of which I'm at work for 8 hours a day, in which to write, sketch, ink, color, shade, and add dialogue to a four panel comic containing multiple characters and generally at least one or two frames with detailed backgrounds.
For this, there are only two characters, one of whom is basically a head shot, no real backgrounds, and I pretty much had no time limit. So I was more free to refine the linework and do extra effects on the shading.
Just as an example, the yellow of Fluttershy's body here had 10 layers of shading, highlights and other color effects. In an episode comic, there's 2: shading and highlights in the hair.
It's quantity over quality, basically. Comics are quantity, but with this image I was able to go for quality.
That was actually something I took into consideration while coming up with the concept for this comic. It's one thing to make these kinds of jokes when it's voice actors playing characters; it's another to do it when they're "real" people. I felt like I needed to be a bit more respectful in this situation.
Thus, unlike most of my comics, nothing physical happens here. It's the same basic humor, but the humor comes from Dash making the rather poor decision of trying to flirt with Quibble, with the appropriate response from his girlfriend/wife.
