The ____ in the moon by tamalesyatole The ____ in the moon by tamalesyatole
YAY! My first pony comic.

I kept thinking about the idea and the best way of express it for a while, and since looks it has not been done before
(but please tell me if I'm wrong), so here it is.

Now, since I'm a newbie in vectoring and I usually lack on patience on learning new abilities, I used some vectors from #MLP-VectorClub, specifically...

First Panel
●~ChemicOwl's "Canterlot Palace Spires at Night"
●~Chromadancer 's "1,000 Year Slumber"

Second Panel
●~Ironfruit's "Dawn Scene - Full Frame Vector"
●=MoongazePonies's "Angel Bunny", modified to make him look into the horizon.
●*RedPandaPony's "Fluttershy Being Fluttershy" sightly modified (closed the mouth for a more "serene" face, and the tail)

Third Panel
●*BonesWolbach's "Field Clearing", modified by erasing the clouds and some stars.
●~ThatsGrotesque's "Lyra facehoof" and ●~Muffin308's "Bon bon looks surprised" were combined into "Bon Bon Facehoof"
●~Shelmo69's "Lyra", with modified front legs.


First Panel Princess Luna was made with Inkscape (the vectors) and GIMP (the mane's special effects) and the mane could have been subconsciously inspired by "Princess Luna" by ~zlack3r.

The "Rabbit in the Moon" Moon and the "Man in the Moon" Moon were made in Inkscape using ~Chromadancer 's "1,000 Year Slumber" as a base and, of course, the actual Moon.

And, with such beautiful backgrounds, I felt the first plane characters were too "flat", so I shaded them. Now they look as if they were lit by moonlight... I guess.

And since English is not my first language, the text was maybe the most difficult part, since I wanted something "poetic" and a good punchline.

So, any feedback is greatly appreciated!

And one more thing... Steganography YAY!
