Luna's Apology by Toxic-Mario Luna's Apology by Toxic-Mario
Thanks for the EQD feature guys. :thumbsup: Appreciate it! LOL and some of you need to chiiiiiill with the hate comments. It's suppose to be a fun comic afterall that's why I draw them..for fun. A little on the meh side but this time I was focusing more on improving the art than getting out a messy comic. :XD:


Yeah this should have been out Wednesday but I actually went a little crazy with this comic and I like it much much better now. Easily one of my more favorite ones I've done.:iconwhutplz:


Well guys it's another comic...or comic time. IDK whatever you wanna call it. So yeah this was an idea that spawned OBVIOUSLY from the new Luna episode. I really haven't seen a explosion of Luna comics yet. Some are funny and other...well they are alright...but don't make a lot of sense. :fear: As you know I like going with comic that make sense...or could actually happen in the spirit of the show.


So yeah I decided to do a comic as if Luna and Rainbow Dash met up so Luna could apologize to her for scaring her at the end of the episode. IDK...just something I would think Luna could do. I know she has that softer side to her underneath her more stronger personality. :) So yeah....ummm as usual, I stuck with the original style of the show. I am really surprised I'm one of the few that stick to the original everything....I just like being consistent...but I still love art that is in other MLP style. I just choose to draw in the same show's style. :iconprincesslunahappyplz:


So that's all I got on this guy. Really hope you enjoyed it. The livestream on this was probably the most fun 3 days I've ever had so far. Especially with the MLP music dual livestream :icontsitra360: and myself were doing. :XD: So yeah onto more MLP stuff....and comic. YAY! Comments guys?


Time spent: 17 hours over 4 days
Program: Paper + Photoshop CS5


PLEASE don't COPY, trace, or recolor any of this WITHOUT asking me. Remember to link this back to me if you put this comic on a site or something.

I'm not much of an artist but I am however a comic enthusiast, a fan of MLP and a writer. Thus I won't bother critiquing the art aspect. It's good, looks kind of like it does on the show but hundreds of people on DA are capable of doing that, I don't give points for it anymore.

Notice I said 'kind of', I might be more impressed if you had done it perfectly but this just doesn't fit that description. Most noticeably Rainbow's snout looks a bit off, and her mane doesn't follow the proper alignment. Her eyelashes curl in this comic when RD is notable for having completely straight eyelashes.

The issue I find is that it's not interesting... at all. It's just two ponies having a casual conversation. Nothing funny happens, nothing entertaining happens in any way, whatsoever.

Seriously who writes a comic where one character goes up to another, apologizes, apology is accepted and that's the end of it. It's boring.

Honestly trying to mimic the show is admirable but when you don't do it write your work just comes off as rather weak. I'd recommend bouncing your ideas off of someone else before sitting down to draw. Preferably somebody who won't just smile and tell you what you want to hear, somebody with some actual backbone who's willing to tell you if your idea isn't all that good.

(Vision – Does the artwork present or reflect a point of view, theme or idea?)

this art piece reflects a point of view that most people have about this character, it shows the kindness of Luna and how diferant she is from before her defeat and ultimate change in attitude from the effects of the Elements of harmony.
The idea I see behind this is the power of forgiveness, especially in the way Dash tells Luna how she feels about a good prank.
I think you did a wonderful job of pointing out the correct response to a playful jest.
However I feel I should point out that because the theme of the show itself innately tries to show love and toleration I can not fully say if this was your intention or just a reflection of the shows canon and the way the characters on it usually would act.


(Originality – Is the artwork fresh or new in its style, execution or approach? Is it something you haven’t seen before in its particular genre? Does it surprise you?)

I can not say that this art piece is Original in it's look or style, it is like I'm looking at the show, there are no significant examples of the artist style in the character designs or background.
Not only does the artwork look like an exact replica of the shows animation but the Halloween theme comic idea has been done by many other artist for me to say that this idea is original in any way except in one small way.
Luna apologizing to Rainbow Dash is a pleasant change from the many other Nightmare Night themed artworks I've seen which usually focus on comedic relief.


(Technique – Was the artwork skillfully created? Does the artist exhibit advanced knowledge of the medium and/or bring special focus to the craft of the medium used. )

This artwork could be considered vary skillfully done.
I had to look at it in full view for a long time to find anything that gave it away as anything more than a vectored image from the show.
This speaks a lot to the artist skill in detail as well as there ability to replicate an art mediums in forms diferant than the original with such skill that it becomes difficult to destingish between the two.
If one considers that this was originally drawn on paper and than edited in Photoshop CS5 and yet looks as good as flash one really begins to understand the work and skill that went into it's creation.

(Impact – Does the artwork resonate with you or evoke strong emotions? Does it make you think? Does it blow your mind?)

I suspect this art piece was meant to please the many fans of the show this art peace is referencing.
Because I am a fan of the show this art piece is referencing I can at least say I like it vary much.
I initially thought it was a vectored image taken from the show I was vary surprised to find out it was not.
I felt happy when I looked at this art piece and felt warm inside when I saw the love and understanding expressed between the two characters portrayed in it.
This art piece made me think about my own action, I asked myself if would have acted as understanding as these two characters if put in the same situation, or if I would have been bitter about it.
This art piece made me feel two feelings; happy and surprised, but I cant say that it truly wowed me.

Wait, Luna is apologizing to Rainbow Dash? It should be the other way around. Rainbow Dash was pranking many more ponies than Luna, and when Luna did it to Dash, she totally deserved it!
