Sleepy head by Toxic-Mario Sleepy head by Toxic-Mario
Has this ever happened to you guys in school? I think we can all tell where I got the idea for this one. :D I wanted something based off Scootaloo sleeping in class. I totally can relate to this myself during my years in high school and very rarely in college. This is literally how my teachers handled the situation if you fell asleep. :P

:iconpinkiesmileplz: Once again...tried a new BG....inside the school house. Though this wasn't gonna look good but after playing with it some more it came out nice. That doorway was nver planned but man what a difference it made.

Overall this was my first time tackling Cheerilee. I think she came out very good. :) So....hope you guys enjoy this one. Onto the next comic....and that one is quite complex. Commnts? Critique?

Time spent: 17 hours over 3 days
How I did it?: 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 on a site or something.

Cheerilee, Scootaloo Lauren Faust

This is a very cute comic with a pretty funny idea! I enjoyed reading it.
The story itself is not particularly original, although still enjoyable. There are a few comics and stories out there that have the same basic line: Student sleeping in class, teacher asks what they just said, student answers correctly. So although it's a cute idea, only 3 stars for originality, sorry.
I like your style of art, though, it's close enough to the show to be adorable but not identical so still fairly original. That's admirable.
Seeing as the idea wasn't particularly original it didn't leave much of an impact, although I still liked it very much.
Overall I enjoyed this comic quite a lot, and I hope my critique wasn't too harsh!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
60 out of 65 deviants thought this was fair.

As with many of the recent post by this artis, the imagery is able to perfectly capture both the art style and the feel of the source material. So on a strictly visual note, it does very well. The only real negative criticism I can throw at the look of this comic is the fact that, after a while, the repeated positions of the characters give the whole thing a somewhat "static" feel to it, as though there really wasn't much going on in the course of the comic.

The humour, whilst certainly simple compared to many other MLP comics I've seen, does it's job of being funny and good-humoured without going overboard or stepping into any unsure territory. As for the main joke itself, I may just be imagining things but I might have come across this joke once before, so I'm afraid on that basis I'm going to have to reduce the originality score somewhat.

Overall, this comic falls square in the middle of the artist's spectrum of work. It not the best made by the artist, but neither is it unsatisfactory either. The art was clean, the humour was good and whilst there may not have been too much in the way of complexity, it was still an enjoyable comic. I'd reccommend giving it a look.

well, funfact about me: i just sat back, closed my eyes and relaxed, so i could focus on the class, but everything the teacher ever said was that when certain people want to sleep, its their problem. i mean, i wasnt sleeping, and i couldnt hear anyone else do so (seriously, i learned to literally hear what happened around me that way), so i kinda got pretty confused.

Kinda how the teachers in elementary delt with it, but when I answered what they said, they start going on a rant about how I need to pay more attention.. THANK GOD I DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THEM ANYMORE
BadWolf1000 Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I do this all the time, I rest my eyes with my head down while still paying attention and the teacher gets pissed when I can recite word for word what she was saying.

Reminds me of almost every lesson I've ever had, most just leave me to it now unless they want a run through of everything they just said. Got thrown out once for 'cheeking' I basically just carried on saying everything she said after she told me to stop, first time getting thrown out of class for paying attention

Happened to me once, the teacher told me that she would've let me sleep, but had to wake me up because I was drooling. 8th grade math no less.

I did that to my math teacher once. He asked me to come up to the board and explain something that he wasn't even talking about. I might as well smacked him across the face, lol.

No this has never happened to me. The closet to it would be the time that I fell asleep from first period to lunch. It was because of medication.
