Action Pony Private Pansy! Now with sword-stabbing action!

This page was great to work on. I didn't really struggle much with it, truth be told. Every other page came with their grievances and problems, as they should, but this one felt surprisingly easy. My intention was to go nuts with the shading and, while I think it lacks a little bit of edge in several areas, the end result is closer to what I had in mind. Remember the trailer for "Thor: Ragnarok" and the way it used blue and pink for the title? That's what I was aiming for, something neon but organic at the same time. The Wendigo was a ton of fun to work on as well. I love drawing these monsters, why don't people draw them more often? They are freaking awesome!

I hope you guys enjoy it. 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.

You can check a small collection of Work in Progress shots right here.

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

Don't mean to be a dick about it, but I still wanna ask: How's the next page coming along? It's been ages, man.

Hey there!

You're not being a dick, your concerns are very much understandable. I am happy to say that I've re-started work on Page 23. You can see a little preview of it on my Twitter page.…

I apologize for this delay, as things have been busy lately.

I figured you must've been busy, that's why I didn't want to bother you by asking this.

Thanks for letting me know. :)
jamescorck's avatar
No worries man, you guys never bother me ;)

I've posted some more WiPs on my Tumblr blog, as well as the finished sketch. You can check it out here

Just you wait, this is the part of the story where things get even more intense.
>8'/.... nah. Aint gonna happen... hold on. The onions need to be cut for dinner.... they do!!
Me, I'd probably not be able to hide my fear. But I'd do my best to pretend, and I hope you'd pretend I was succeeding. And I'd probably ask you to tell the world "He died the way he always wanted to: for the right reason."

That's what puts Pansy's fears to rest. She knows her sacrifice is for the right cause.

That line got me so much. This section really does string you along & take you for the journey that has that emotion tied throughout. You did great on this & ahhhhhh, my feeeeels

Thank you man!

That's the objective of this comic, tug at the heartstrings mercilessly.

"I'll never forget the last time I saw you alive"... Way to erase all my hopes in one sentence :(

Either way, it's a very touching story so far.

I just really hope you're not planning on turning it into a total cliche with one of those abrupt endings with only a few panels explaining how her bravery ended up being an inspiration to all and that it was only because of her sacrifice that they all managed to survive, yadda, yadda, yadda... a few thousand years later, her story is still told by every old-timer. Up to this very day, all still know of the tale how one so feeble in appearance proved to be the strongest of all in spirit, blah, blah, blah, *insert mandatory panel with filly and her parents by Pansy's monument and the filly saying how she wants to be as brave as Pansy some day*... That would suck so bad.

Worry not.

That is not the direction in which we're taking the story.

Thank you man.

We're slowly putting together more pages. This move is slowing me down something fierce.
