Lonely Night continues by LupiArts Lonely Night continues by LupiArts

Hello everyone,

you might remember one of my latest Spitfire drawings showing her with a grumpy expression, sitting at a pub all alone while having herself some booze... Well, I've seen this as some kind of prequel to the next shot, which you can see here:

Lonely Barseats by LupiArts

Honestly, I would have liked to turn this scene into a small comic, only like 5 zo 10 pages actually, where we can find out what went wrong, why she's drinking to drown her frustration/anger and what happens next in the evening. But despite the lack of time to work on it, it might also give a wrong impression. You see: My opinion towards alcohol is clear - I despise it, I'm afraid of it and I've never intentionally touched even the slightest drop of it, not even for celebrations. However, as much as I hate alcohol as a whole and as much as I'm scared of it in a way, I can totally see it as a part of Spitfire in my long head canon, I might give you a short form of.

I imagine Spitfire to have been and still be like a machine, always focused, cold, strict and motivated to reach her goals for the best of Equestria and the ponies around her. However, by being that cold and strict, having to give punishment if someone disrespects her orders as the Captain of the Wonderbolts, she doesn't have the best rebutation and ponies might have started talking bad about her behind her back, despising her, but she knows. Therefore, on stressful days, the pegasus mare just sits at her favourite pub, drinking enough to cover her feeling of being lonely and hated by others around her and to cover her sorrows (that I won't explain any further since it would be too long).
So in short: I just see alcohol as her only real weakness - she is a strong, athletic, loyal character, an idol for many and leader of an important group, someone who seems to have no real weaknesses or flaws at all... She does indeed... alcoholism might be the problem for her.

This is just why I came up with this topic and wanted to draw it out, I'm not setting the statement that alcohol is a good thing, I wouldn't say that XD Just keep that in mind.

Nevertheless, I really hope you like this new drawing, I definitely enjoyed drawing it, drawing Spitfire from that perspective, my pretty grumpy favourite mare, and adding a more or less decent background XD oh well, looking forward to your feedback^^

Time: Around 3 to 4 Hours

Hey, you started this head canon for me XD Don't blame me. And yet, yeah I admit, it's an interesting thought. Why that is I explained often enough to you, you already know my opinion towards alcohol though. So it's more of a character trait to Spitfire instead of a "positively decorating depiction" of booze in general.

And wow, thank you so so much^^ I feel super honoured :D

And yeah, berry Punch would be her best competitor if you ask me. But damn...

Thanks a lot :la:

Drunken Spitfire....oh boi. 

I am really liking the outcome of this one too. You did a really good job to express how she gets when she is drunk of booze. I would love to see a comic in this, but I see your point when it comes to alcohol. 
But these drawings just really show us how you manage to draw someone being boozed of, even when you have never experinced the slightest of drop alcohol. 

The choice is yours to make a comic is up to you, I know that school gets more busy now as it's closing in on exams. But it is your choice to make. 


Lovely job on this one! Looking forward for more!

Yes, indeed...

I have to say I'm very happy and relieved to hear you understand my point of view about alcohol and that it's just a strange thing to me. Thank you very much for your kind words. In fact, I am glad you like the drawing and the atmosphere. It means a lot since I quite enjoyed the process of making it. Your lovely words help a lot :heart:

We will see about the future of this topic and if a comic will be possible for me to make. I'd hope so, but I have huge projects already. :D

I am happy to hear that you are relieved that I understand your point. You should be proud for not drinking that, because it really screws with your mind.
I already know this becuase I myself drink a couple times a week, just not a lot. But it is never really a good thing to drink often, or not even at all.
I am happy to help if my words do the job ;)

Hahaha, take your time Lupi. And do the projects you are planning already before starting on other big projects.

Huge Projects...EEEEE!

It makes me happy to know people understand me or even relate to my point of view. And yeah, I am proud to not drink, but on the other hand there is some curiosity to try and have a drink some day. Yet again, it somehow scares me even. Oh well, I'd like to be a bit more open about it and not panic when someone is a little tipsy.

:iconwoodendjtwitchmusic1:
There is such a big variety of drinks to taste. So it mainly goes on from what drinks and flavours you enjoy from before. It's better to be open, I agree on that one. But if I were to recommend something for you, you could send me a note or a message and we could talk.

If you panic with a little tipsyness...Then I wonder how it is when getting real bad..

Well, I definitely like drinking Cocktails like Pina Colada. Of course no alcohol ones. But I like the flavour of these. However, I wouldn't drink Beer or vodka and such. I think I find it too disgusting and not tasty. 

And yeah, it's kinda hard to explain. As soon as someone drinks alcohol, I instantly see them as "intoxicated" so they are not 100% themself. Of course, it's a little overexaggerated but that's more or less how I am XD And on one hand, I'm curious what close people would be like when being a bit tipsy/slightly drunk and on the other hand I'd be scared and I'd feel weird next to them acting strange compared to normally. I don't even know if I want to find out XD

What kinds of flavours are those?
Beer or vodka I can understand, but how about cider? There are many different types of cider to find in normal stores usually. And the percentage of them is not so high either.

How much do you see them drink before you start to see them "intoxicated"? I can see your point though.

When it comes to close friends getting slightly drunk or tipsy, it can have different outcomes, both bad and good ones.

You have to find out one day xD sooner or later you will ;)

Pina Colada is a mixture between Pineapple and Coconut. Coconut Kiss is the same except with Strawberry instead of pineapple XD but yeah, I like those sweet and juicy cocktails^^

I haven't touched or even seen cider so far over here. Huh. Dunno about it. I don't even really know the difference between all of them but I always thought negative about alcohol as a whole. So I'm uncertain about cider, either. 

Uhm, hard to say actually. I have no real clue on what is much and what isn't so drinking one glass/mug of alcohol is "intoxicating" to me.

Yeah, i guess some day it will happen XD

I really love the picture, I am for one in the same boat about alcohol as you but still I think you should still make the small comic. As long as people know you are not glorifying it and understand it is just a story you came up with, people wouldn't misinterpret what you are doing.

I means a lot to me hearing that I'm not the only one with my opinion about alcohol. It is a relief.
I will think about the comic idea, it's not completely gone yet. Thank you for your encouragement and support :heart:

As someone who was in the military, I can tell you that being strict, stern, and authoritative is respected, as long as the order and control is understood to be part of the larger purpose of carrying out the mission. Sympathy and understanding has its place, and are desired aspects in officers and upper enlisted because it allows for people to function knowing their leaders care about them, but are out of place when it comes to completing objectives. I suspect ponies would come into The Wonderbolts knowing what they're getting into, and wouldn't care for a leaders who seemed soft, even if that's not the intent.

I can see Spitfire having a more caring personality that clashes with her role of being a demanding task master. As much as she'd like to hug the recruits, it would do no good in making The Wonderbolts a great team. And being tough on ponies that she likes is something that troubles her.

Thank you very much for your feedback and opinion, I appreciate it and it's interesting to hear your point of view about this topic. I'll respect it.
I admit, I've never had much contact to military etc. which is why I may or may not have a wrong depiction of it in my head, but I found the concept I explained fitting for Spitfire. nevertheless, your alternate version doesn't sound too bad to me either^^
