Man, it's been a while since I struggled with a deadline and I forgot how doing so pumps my blood and makes me get into a haze-like state of mind. It's like nothing around me exists and there's only the tablet, the keyboard, and the PC monitor. It's kind of scary, I guess this is what it feels like when you focus so much into something your reality warps around you and disappears.

One thing to consider on this picture is that Commander Hurricane isn't exactly a hero. She's not there to make friends, and her best method of negotiation is a blade to the throat, so Private Pansy's antics about calming down and dialogue don't gel with her worldview. I like that we're doing this from her perspective and nobody else's, because out of all three she has the most muddled and unclear motives. Is she looking for a better land to save her people, to sate her need of conquer, to expand her armies, for all three reasons, or none of them? This makes her a more interesting character than, say, Princess Platinum (who has the most hideous hair style and how's costume I despise for being so bland yet so finicky and such a pain to draw). Also, I had fun with the shading. Notice how it degrades panel by panel from warm greens and pinks, to the dead greys and blues.

Please, feel free to share your ideas, thoughts and theories in the comments.

We do promise to get a page out each month at the very least, but there is a way you can help us with getting these out faster, and that is to support :iconrated-r-ponystar: on Patreon. He's paying for all the pages and currently is struggling to not just support this project but other art comic projects of his as well.


Every and all support is welcome.
If you donate more money to him, he can pay me for the future comic pages faster, as well as any other projects we plan on working together for such as his big project “Fallen Dusk” which you can read about on his patreon milestone goal list.

We are glad to be working on this again and we hope you guys donate so this comic can continue forward without delay.

Please, let me know what you think, of both this page and the series, in the comments.

Finally caught up with the comic! wow, that was intense! I really love how you do the shadings. :D Can i ask what program do you use in making these? 
jamescorck's avatar
Thank you so much! Shading is usually my favorite part of making a picture, it's what brings it into life.

I use Photoshop CS5.

Nothing matters more than the mission and no one is indispensable.

Sometimes that line of thinking has ended up with several people killed.
But what is insanity? Perhaps it is insane to suggest peace where there has only ever been strife. It gets to the point where you can't try anything that hasn't been tried before, and they do say that insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. But sometimes a different result is what you get.

The worst part about insanity, is that it's subjective.

Never once did any of the ponies come close to realising that the Windigoes were a nemesis of their own creation.

It's the problem some leaders face sometimes. They argue among themselves so much that they end up missing sight of the real problem.

This sure looks like quite the fun project that all of you are working on James & Rated R. Ponystar. keep up the great work.  once all pieces are complete you will have to compile them all together into one giant comic.

as for the artwork, It's hard to find any flaws, the characters designs have been consistent through the entire comic, you are using gradients to great effect to help tell the story.  I love how you drew the Windigoes.   The only thing that I could see was perhaps the ground underneath the windigoes as they are moving.  You can tell they are destroying the grasslands, but I cant tell if its snow, or sand on the ground.    Thats the only thing that I can see,  but its all still very awesome.  Keep up the great work. XD

Thank you man, I'll keep giving it my all.

The ground underneath them is basically rotting and turning grey and brown. They kill everything they get near. I didn't make it so clear, though. Next update, I'll make sure it's a lot more clearer.

Can't wait for more.

Heheh, I can tell you we're currently working on Page 16, developing the designs for the Wendigos, and working on the panels. I hope you're still looking forward to future pages!
jamescorck's avatar
Heheh, well I can tell you right now, Page 16 is about 75% completed, and will be ready for next week!
