YAY! Wild Fire/Sibsy Snowdrop/Raven Fillies Comic!
I know that "What was that I don't even" should be written like "What was that?! I don't even...". But I considered that ending with something like "What is this I don't even" was the only option.
Having seen some deviations about how Wildfire would have gotten her Cutie Mark, I decided to try to make a Comic about on that theme, but since most things associated to Fire, Wild and Tires were a little too much non-ecological and have been done before (like this one
or this one
), I decided to make something related to Real Life Sibsy (Storyboarding / Drawing), Wild Fire's Cutie Mark and Real Fire. This is the result.
I thought "
Wild Fire is going to feel lonely in PonyVille, so let's add some SnowDrop!". I almost regret that decision when I had to draw Filly!Snowdrop from behind. I hadn't any reference, and that thing on her head (I don't know the English term) was difficult to do, but I think she looks good.
Also, /)^3^(\ So cute!
Anyway, I guess you already noticed it, but I made each filly to do something between each panel: Derpy eats a muffin, Snowdrop changes expressions while reading and Wild Fire exerts more friction near flammable material until combustion happens.
Now, there is a lot of deviations from which I could (and did) reference certain aspects of Sibsy's character, but *theflashguy
's comics were quite an inspiration. Also, in some comics, looks like she is left-
hooved, but I couldn't find another reference.
's Snowdrop, she is reading "I Have No
Muzzle Mouth And I Must Whine Scream"
from Harlan Ellison. I guess it was Snowdrop who lend Rainbow Dash That Book
. Quite a coincidence.
This comic was meant to be Animated, and since I decided to use Blur Effects in the Smoke, Fire and Clouds, I tried to make it an Animated PNG (APNG), but when I tried to optimize it, it have some glitches that I couldn't get rid of. And making it a GIF, with all that Blur, would have made it look so bad that I decided just upload an standard PNG. You wouldn't miss much, anyway. But if you really want to see it, Here it is
. It's a massive 8.4 Mb APNG compatible only with Firefox and Opera (or Chrome, with an add-on).
The only vector from other people I used was "The Classroom
" by *Sulyo
for the interior bacgrounds, my "Ponyville Schoolhouse
for the exteriors, and *ZuTheSkunk
's "Wild Fire's cutie mark
" as a reference for the fire.
