Holder's Boulder Simulator by Pony-Berserker Holder's Boulder Simulator by Pony-Berserker
The doubleWbrothers are good friends of mine, so I thought I'd take a shot at their immensely popular 'simulator' genre, because that's how friendship between artists work. I think I found a way to "improve" those simulators too, am I right? =P
I kept postponing this comic for a while due to the obvious difficulty for me - hands... I occasionally tried to sketch some hands with average results at best. I think hands I drew in this comic are somewhat acceptable in terms of cartoon hands. I'm aware there are flaws but trying to make them look perfect would be too much for my skills. I drew them basically trying to use my own (left) hand as a reference (while drawing with a reversed canvas) but it wasn't as easy as one would wish for...

Info for those not exactly familiar with all MLP episodes - in the episode "Hearthbreakers" Holder's Boulder was shown to be Limestone Pie's (Pinkie's sister) favorite boulder on their rock farm.
OC's in the final panel are ponysonas of doubleWbrothers and a changeling-sona of mine (Berzie).

The script for this comic was created by me and 
Middy. Art is mine. Thanks to Albert Chiou for his suggestions.

How long was Limestone there? Because I would think she wouldn't know that someone touched the boulder unless she was there the whole time and no one noticed she was standing there the whole time.

IS that really how you pronounce their names?XD
Reply
:iconpony-berserker:
Pony-Berserker Featured By Owner May 8, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No. I guess it's how Midnight--Blaze pronounces it :P
My way of pronouncing in my thoughts is different than standard too but it's because my brain simplifies the pronunciation of their name by mixing Polish and English pronunciation rules which makes it easier for the tongue. But it's less funny too. After all I don't have real life chances to pronounce it vocally =P When I was at pony cons I think I pronounced it properly but it still feels like a tiny tongue twister :P

Wow! Limestone REALLY did a number on him!

What's even scarier is that he's being looked after by the VETERANARIAN pony, like he was some kind of ANIMAL. *shudders*

A scene from Dexter's Lab comes to mind when I look at panel 5:

Dee Dee popping up, yelling 'AKI SAKI!', and slamming Dexter in the face with a fly swatter, then *insert cartoon sound effect here*

And yes, this made me chuckle and smile pretty good. I hope your buddies like your sense of humor, cause good ol' fashioned cartoon cliche's are comedy gold imo.

Also the last panel's Fine Bros. OC's expressions are priceless...and Berzie looks so haaaaappy =p
