Oh Tush! Not Again... by tamalesyatole Oh Tush! Not Again... by tamalesyatole
YAY! 100%-Princess-Luna-ANIMATED-Comic!

:bulletgreen:EDIT 2:
●Featured in Equestria Daily, Saturday, June 16, 2012
●Corrected some grammatical errors (Thanks to ~Heretic-Sage for the current English and ~acvcritter for the Elizabethan English)

:bulletgreen:EDIT: Replaced with a smaller version (Still Big, 5.5MB). If for some reason you want the bigger 20 MB version, you can find it HERE .

Now. Remember my previous comic? That time I said: "This one took more (both time and work) of what I had thought when I first started it. I made more vectors and modifications to the existing ones in a single panel than my whole previous comic!"

Maybe that one was a Huge, Meta, Clever comic. THIS one, however, should be cataloged as a Film!:

●~Chalcedonian's "Luna Giggle" with eyes modified to look to the right.
●~Myythic's "Princess Luna"
●~90Sigma's "Shocked Princess Luna"
My own "Luna Philosophizing"
●The PEGASUS laptop is based on a real laptop. The most difficult part? The keys.
●The Wind OS Heaven Login Screen is a modified version of the Windows Server 2008 Login Screen, decorated with ~exe2001's "Cloud Shape 1", and Celestia's User Account picture has *BlackGryph0n's "Princess Celestia Cutie Mark"
●"Celestia's desktop" is a screenshot of my own desktop, and yes, that wallpapaer is my Elite Beat Agents Wallpaper; it doubles as "watermark" too (see my icon), and it is the one I'm currently using. I'm not (too) lazy! I made this comic!
●The "shorcut" to EQD icon is ~he4rtofcourage's "Chrome-poni"
●The Equestrian Day Cycle was made with, you already saw it, Stellarium (Not to be confused with Celestia, another astronomical program), and for the landscape, a mix of ~Kishmond's "At The Gala" and ~MLP-Vector-Collabs' "Group Background #1". The composite image can be downloaded here and the Landscape File as is used in Stellarium, here, with instructions.
My own "Princess Celestia's Room" and one of the reasons I spent so much time in this comic (the other was I was out of town, but that doesn't matter...)
●I had the idea of the Computer-Controlled Day during "Lesson Zero", where Twilight sees the sun moving as if it were a clock; In Stellarium, you can do the same by pressing "Ctrl + =". Then, the idea evolved from trolling Twilight to somepony breaking the mechanism (the laptop).
●The idea of a Gamer Luna has been addressed in other comics. Then I thought "Let's have Luna playing 'a game'" and then this comic was born.
●The Dialog. Or actually a Monologue, was a tricky part. Not only this is the most text-extensive comic I have made, but it was particularly difficult since I wanted Luna speak with Elizabethan English. YE SHALL TELL US IF SOMETHING ISN'T CORRECTLY SPELLED!.
●There are two "animations" in this comic: Celestia's Room and the Exterior View. I intended these were synchronized, so if it's 2:00pm inside the castle, in the outside the sun must be high in the sky. That was the easy part, since both animations are made of 24 frames, I just paired the respective frames from the inside with those from the outside.
●The shallow focus, as seen in "Put your hoof down" when Fluttershy locks herself inside her house, was both visual candy and a device to shift the attention from Luna to the computer between Panels 2 and 3.
●I realized that Celestia's Room needed more contrast: the dark room looks better than a well lit room. The shadows are just a black and white layer blended with "Overlay"; white for lights and black for shadows. Again GIMP 2.8's Layers Folders came in handy.
●The shadows in Celestia's Room were simulated in Google Sketchup, and this helped both the illumination of the room and the pairing with the Stellaruim time stamps.
●If you try Stellarium, you should make the same that Luna did; the arrow keys actually are for looking around. And you will know what causes several J J J J J J J presses by now...
●Since this is a GIF animation, I had to change manually to Indexed Mode in order to better manage the color loss. Floyd-Steinberg Dithering was used. A 40ms delay between frames and the "combine" method for the animation.

I really hope all of you found this comic worthy. It really was a pain in the flank...

What do the icons say? "Were you looking for..."? For what? xD
tamalesyatole Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

The full sentence is "Where you      looking      for some    Hidden    text again?" referring to a previous comic of mine. 

I originally made a (lot) bigger version with a more readable text, but it was really big (20MB) so I made a smaller one, but then that text ended almost unreadable.

I don't really understand what's happening in the last panel.

PrinceNightShade Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

It's easy to reverse. And in the actual application, you can set the location even on the moooooon.

Not sure if better or worse than eternal night. Either way, I enjoyed this :D

But, the question remains. Did Luna really screw up the day/night cycle?

Or is Discord just trolling her? ;P

(Yes, I do realize that this was made before Discord's reform)

I don't know if you knew this when you came up with the laptop... but wikipedia says ASUS actually IS based on Pegasus, but the -peg was omitted so the name would be at the top of alphabetical lists.
Makes this extra funny i think.

(Was looking at wiki article trying to figure out how to pronounce ASUS, lol)
tamalesyatole Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I really didn't know at the time ( I used Wikipedia to find all the PC manufacturers to find something fitting that wasn't "PONY/SONY" and I didn't even read ASUS article...)

Hilarious, awesome work! I love that people can have so much fun with Luna's character, in images and in fiction.

Well done Luna, you just ruined the value of shares in Solar power. That's how Wall Street in Manehatten crashed.
DarthGrave Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2012
Luna: (Damn. I better fix this before Tia reliazes what's going on. But how? Lets see... I said 'Jump' the first time so to stop it I should say...)

Luna: "STOP!" (Still spinning.) "SIT!" (Still spinning.) (....Damn it. She must have known I'd break into her laptop.) "...THOU SHALT STAND STILL!" (Stops spinning.)

Luna: (Phew! I finally got it to stop spinning...)

(Sounds of hoovesteps coming up the stairs.)

Luna: (Shit! Tia's coming and from the sounds of her hoovesteps she'll be at the door in two mintues.)

Luna: (Heh, heh. I should change the password...) (Opens sign in opition file.)

[Would you like to change the password? Y.]

[New password: 'TOTHESUN'.]

[Accept this password? Y.]

[Saving password... Password saved.]

[Turn off the compture? Y.]

[Shuting down..]

Celestia: (Doorknob clicks.) "Hello? Is there anypony in here?"

Luna: 'Uh-oh. Time to go.' (Teleports out of the room.)

Celestia: (Opens the door.) ".....I don't see anypony." (Closes the door and goes back downstairs.)

(Hours later at night.)

Celestia: "...What? Why isn't 'To the moon.' working as a password anymore?" (Presses hint button.)

[Hint: Celestia]

Celestia: "LUUUNAAA!"
