Humble Pie by Toxic-Mario Humble Pie by Toxic-Mario
Ok not gonna lie I absolutely love this comic....probably one of my top 3 in the 2nd half of S7.  :boogie:  I don't usually do this but even though I did this comic at the beginning of August and had original dialogue in this I went back and completely overhauled it to fit something more in tune with the episode after seeing the last bit of S7 EP leaks last week.  I didn't have to change anything on the characters but oh my god do I like this version so much better.  :P  If you notice I didn't try any funky shading on this or anything this time around.  I was thinking about it 2 nights ago when I was messing with the new dialogue but actually I want to re-evaluate something.  I know how to do cell shading like DBZ has and have implemented that on my anthros and stuff but I may give it a shot on my new ponies.  I want to test something over some of these older comics to see if which works best and concentrate on that and put it in the newer stuff I have been working on since I wrapped up the S7 comics months ago and stock piled up a LOT of pics.  My thinking is the cell shading may be the best approach as I am most familiar with it...but we'll see.  For now....go find the muffin in this if you can find it.  ;)


I noticed something a little interesting so far in 2017 that I haven't done so much in the past and that is the amount of Applejack and Dash comics I have made.  I don't ship them obviously but I just find the dynamics of these 2 characters even back in 2011 to be a great combo for comics and stuff.  Like I don't have any Dash and AJ comics from this one on per-say yet...even with all the crap I have stockpiled up in the last couple months but I am gonna try and formulate up a few more in the S7 off-season.  There's something about this duo that I really like and it may be the fact I connect with these 2 characters on their sports and competitive level, cause I like the same stuff, but they are also the hardest combo I think to come up with solid ideas for stuff.  Although when you get something as totally simple as this comic it works so well even for the simplicity of it.  :D  Oh I will say this that I still find the Sweet Apple Acres backgrounds to be the hardest things to do.  I don't ever re-use BGs...well not since 2012 on panels so everything I do has to be different than any other comic.  :)  That's a challenge but I just like the setting I choose for this one.  Little fun trying those new poses out when I did them a while back.  That's my goal for any comics since January is to have each comic have one pose or something I haven't tried before yet.  :)


Alright so that will wrap it on this one.  As I said I will play around with trying to come up with more Dash and AJ comics in the S7 off-season and I do have a lot of Derpy and Spitfire ones I have been working off of and have completed.  I'll mess with the shading stuff likely in the next 2 weeks or so.  Just need to get through a busy couple weeks sending out weather job applications and my hydrology class I still got 2 more months of intense stuff for.  Pretty much juggling that and watching hockey games and going to my uncle and cousin's house for sports evenings which are a blast.  :meow:  Again...a juggling act.   Alright so 2 more S7 comics to go and then the real stuff of what I been working on last couple months in this new style...unless you been in my live streams each night.  :iconderpy-hooves:

Do you mind a 2-fold Finnish translation of this comic ? In the standard and a dialect.

Throughout the episode I was wondering, "Why doesn't she just ask her to bake something else?"

I don't get the "You're screwed." punchline.

Well, even at her most crazy, Pinkie didn't physically attack Rainbow Dash for not eating her pies. Give her more credit than that.

 I liked your old style. 
The legs are too skinny, the eyes 
look too far apart. 
They look more like anthro pony men, 
than cartoon horses. You should
really look in on the anatomy of 
ponies. 

It's really odd and quite disturbing to look at. And 
the eyes seem like you put more effort into them 
then the actual horses. 

I appreciate wanting to try something new, but
you should really look at references and MLP 
references too.

I think it just came out like that to the posing too I chose for it.  XD  Although AJ and Dash are most physically gifted.

Yes, they are, but Aj has a massive advantage: she's an Earth pony and she works daily for hours.
