In which I finally decided to try and learn how to draw humans (to an extent), to variable results.
Just a brief clarification at the start - I personally subscribe to the headcanon that ‘poopie’ encompasses the browns, dark/vomit greens and piss yellows.
Well wouldn’t you know, it was only a bad dream! What a twist!
(As usual, skip everything below this point if you don’t want to read my rambling about inside-baseball stuff)
Well, this was, at times, laborious, but I’m glad I got this finished. Feels like I learned a lot from doing this, but at the same time I’m not doing anything near this long again for a good long while. I started this shit in like…November, but I’m one of the slowest and least motivated people in the world, so it took a bloody age. Still, it was worth doing, certainly.
If this seems tonally confused, then well spotted. This was originally meant to be a 6-page or so jaunt about a poopie foal getting fed into a garbage disposal (something which I don’t think I’ve actually seen before, although if I’m wrong please drop a link below), which realistically could have been a two-panel Pastry Knight-style comic, but then I got one panel in and remembered I’m a dirty hugboxer at heart - hence why it veers into ham-fisted emotions at the end. Plus, I wanted to take a pot-shot at my least favourite overdone trope - Guy gets into fluffies, meets cute girl at local fluffmart who’s into him, she eventually catches him torturing fluffies but surprise! She’s literally fluffy Satan, so they totally make out and bang and stuff.
Now that this is done, I’m thinking I might bring back R&D funding proposals for a couple of ideas - although I’ve seen some of the thoughts people have about subspecies lately, so I’ll have a think on it. Might just take a break and work privately on improving, like, everything, who knows.
As always, feedback and critique is both welcomed and invited.
(Quick shoutout to PlushkinnOwO, who’s fluffies I started referencing a bit towards the end for certain things like facial expressions. Their stuff looks really good.)
