April Fools 2012: Adventuring is Magic! by Elyandarin April Fools 2012: Adventuring is Magic! by Elyandarin
For my 11th April Fools day strip, I chose to ponify my "mane" cast. Throughout the years, my poor characters have been furrified, genderbent, age-reversed, body-swapped, modernized, evilified, style-changed, genre-changed and chibified - oh, and there was this time I had them dress up in each-other's clothes.
And now, ponification. Oh, the indignity.

Actually, if someone has a suggestion for next year, I'm receptive; I think I'll run out of ideas soon...

-------------------------

Nimble has lacked adequate hands in far too many April Fools strips, by his reckoning. At least he's starting to cope...

-------------------------

I've looked at the new My Little Pony series, and I approve.
Overall, it's a bit too simplistic for me - it's Avatar the Last Airbender that hits the spot for me when it comes to western animation - but MLP:FIM is a high-quality series that I don't mind watching, and which I imagine is actually good for children.

I mean, when I looked back at the crap I viewed as a kid... *shudder* (Any Swede who has seen the Swedish dub of Cyborg 009 will feel my pain.)

----------------------

Took me hours to get this looking vaguely OK, but yeah, I'm fairly satisfied. Should I have gone for full, true cel-shading? Nah, diminishing returns.
For all that MLP is popular, it's surprisingly hard to find a character drawing reference sheet for it on Google.

---------------------

In my archives, this is the first times two April Fools strips run together; I've spent the time redrawing the first dozen comics, to make them less puke-worthy. I was fine with them for the first few years, when only the art suffered in comparison, but now when I feel the scripts are equally bad...
:iconnyerguds:
It was kinda sad to see the archives end on two consecutive April's Fools comics, though.

Also, don't sell yourself short, your scripts are great. I don't think I've ever laughed so much with a webcomic archive, and I used to read hundreds of them.
