I just saw it! In the first panel, in one of the puddles, is a reflection of the moon with Nightmare Moon's crater-formed symbol on it! That means there are technically two Nightmare Moons in this 'war realm' (and that makes three Lunas)!

Awwww, she looks so vulnerable in the third panel. Wish I could protect her.

Holy shit Nightmare moon kicked Chrysalis`s ass?
StarShr3w's avatar
um, it makes it kinda scary in Chrysalis's position right now. I'd be scared silly. ( not really because I'm not that scared of a pony princess, and all who say I should be, think about it. We have forces stronger than a bunch of horses with horns. One of the most badass planes we got is " Puff the magic dragon" and the guns on that thing shoot a thousand per minute. Don't believe me? Look it up.)

Wait, are there 2 Celestias in 2 different places? What's going on?

Also, I can't remember if I said this already, so sorry if I did, but you shouldn't save your images as JPGs. JPGs degrade the quality of images to get smaller file sizes. Your artwork would look better if you saved it as PNGs. And resaving a JPG as a PNG doesn't reverse it; it has to be saved as a PNG from the beginning. Also, they don't scale up or down very well.

It would be a good idea if the dimensions of the images were not so great. The size of each page is 3500pixel x 4950pixel with a resolution of 350 dpi.

I think that at this level of quality the PNG is no longer necessary (especially that there is no alpha channel for the transparency in our
pages). After the weight of the file in jpeg is about 7-8 MB, against 20-30 MB for png.

But thank you for your advice, it makes me happy that you worry about the quality of our comics! ^^MLP Twilight Sparkle (Nodding) Plz

Alright, but for future reference in case you didn't know, you can google "png optimizer" and find sites that can shrink the file sizes of PNGs to make them take up exponentially less space with little to no quality loss.

I don't get it. What is the point? It's already in HD even in JPG!
lunchymunchies's avatar
(God, I butchered this comment originally)

What? I wasn't trying to get them to change it anyway. They said they didn't want to, so I was just telling them about something for future reference.

Say, why don't you also put this on Tumblr? That's where everyone is because that's where most of the pony fan comic are made. You'd get a lot more readers and potential patrons that way. You wouldn't even have to change the pages that much; all you'd have to do is split them into a few pieces.

Also, why the name? It's weird.

'don't know how Tumblr works but at least we could try.

Which name are you talking about?
lunchymunchies's avatar
Well if you do decide to put it on Tumblr, this advice might be helpful:

"If ponies want to find New Tumblr Ask Blogs, they will look for tags such as “mlp ask blog” “ask blog” “mlp” “pony ask blog” “pony” so tagging your posts with them is quite useful.

Remember that only the first FIVE tags are the ones that will get out there, and the FIRST tag is a little bit more important because if a Pony “Follows” a TAG, posts with that tag will pop up on their dashboards, regardless of popularity, most of the times, the most recent ones will be there."

There are 2 ways you can post images on Tumblr. You can either embed them in a non-photo post or make a photo post. Photo posts make the images to clickable, enlarged, and navigable with the arrow keys and mouse, a slideshow, basically, but you can only have 10 images, and any extra ones will have to be embedded, with embedded images being unclickable.

Also, Tumblr is made for blogging, not hosting art, so it's not optimal for that, and it has certain quirks you have to know and work around to not fall into any traps. For one, it blurs really tall/wide images (the further away from square it gets, the worse it gets) in the dashboard (which is how most people will see them) and on some themes, and shrinks images above a certain size, which can make dialogue hard to read, and if an image is still gigantic in the post, then trying to zoom it in actually makes it smaller and even harder to read (because the zoomed images don't go above a certain size, so it's possible for images to be bigger in the post than they are in the slideshow) hence the need to split this into pieces. To look the best it can on Tumblr, I recommend that the 1st 2 panels be separate images, the middle section be a separate image, and the bottom 3rd be split into 2 or 3 images.

However, there are also 2 images involved for every image. There's the source file in the website that is pulls from, but the image that you see is actually a shrunken preview version that gets enlarged and fully loaded while zoomed in if clicked. When making photo posts with more than 1 image, the preview image is shrunken even more, but still blown up to the same size, meaning that there is some quality loss compared to embedding an image in a post or making a photo post with just 1 image.

I actually got curious and put this page on Tumblr to see how it would look and experimented with various ways of cutting it up into pieces to see how the site would display it. Why don't you have a look-see?

You can change the image layout so it doesn't have to be a vertical row like it was there. Oh, and if you make images a smaller width than the post template (540 pixels), they'll get blown up to fill the width, so don't make really small images. This is why the smaller images in that looked a lot bigger than the ones that were a lot bigger.

2 Celestia? Why?
lunchymunchies's avatar
Well, in the previous and next pages, she's in a different place with different things going on in different clothes, and I don't know why.
Lummh's avatar
LummhHobbyist Writer
Beeeecauuuse... there's only one Celestia and the differents clothes one is an other character maybe? =Þ
lunchymunchies's avatar
Oh, never mind; I thought that other character was Celestia.
