A fanart/guest comic of my blog Dice & Dining Rooms for the always awesome Mecha Shockwave

As you can see, the core ideas of their characters are kinda set in stone. Fluttershy wasn’t eager to kill anything, even in fantasy, so she didn’t join. The group is quite complete, though, and they shouldn’t have a problem against whatever campaign I have thought for them. .

We’ll try to have the girls roll their first characters. I’ll be able to mold the campaign according to it. For now, let’s see how this goes.

Yes, I’m aware that my drawing skills aren’t the best in the fandom, but the blog’s comedy might be able to compensate for it.

Alright, I know I left a note at the town hall’s billboard mentioning that I wanted to start a tabletop RPG campaign, and I expected some sort of reply from curious ponies. But I never expected Princess Twilight and her friends to answer the call. These girls are the saviors of Equestria! I’m going to need to apply myself to make it worth their time.

And this is how my comic starts. We’ll see how it goes.

I fucking hated this part so much.

God, just…fuck you you fucking old asshole that is not fair.

I have to check if they actually tried to work it out in Spanish, but THIS scene, regardless of the context, must have been a pain in the balls to translate and actually keep the cruelty of the situation in every single language.

i’m gonna start using this line

Even with all the joy Team Rocket brought to the show, it boggled my mind that they started as really neat, badass villains that were able to throw all the verbal comebacks you could think of. And I loved that. And then they became goofy villains that were less intimidating than a half-eaten cake. I really loved them in this episode, and when they were thrown into badassery several years later.

I wonder if I’ll ever get featured on Equestria Daily? Oh wait, that’s for good, well known artists. So definitely not me.

Don’t do the blog in hopes it gets on EQD. The site has turned bias, and people like us won’t get there.

That’s really the thing I hate the most about the MLP community here. I hate that I can’t just draw and enjoy myself because I’m caught in some giant popularity contest that I keep losing. As far as “popularity” goes, I can get some artists’ position in the fanbase. Like for someone like atryl, for example, I can completely understand, his art is just incredible, as in, no matter how much I practice or how much time I put into it, I will never even come CLOSE to his level good. Where is it’s someone like Pirate Dash or Backy, then I don’t get it.Their art is okay, but it certainly doesn’t garner the hundreds upon hundreds of fucking notes they get per post. Hell, some reach well into the 1000s! Though if you ask me their “popularity” probably comes more from blatantly pandering to the fanbase’s interests than the art itself. But, that’s just my opinion.

You’re more or less right. The artists who’s skills wouldn’t really compare to, let’s say, Slugbox, somehow have tons of followers. But that’s after persistence, hard work, and just doing what they love to do (and probably because of all the content they pump out).

Don’t take your followers for granted. Doing these blogs should not be a popularity content, but rather an excuse/opportunity to draw and get an audience/a name for yourself. It’s really humbling and nice when you see it that way, and it’s pretty much how webcomics and webtoons work.

Being skillful in art can sure get you faster followers, but we all have the same amount of chance to showcase our stuff. It’s all about asskissing, art trades, collabs, and connections, which is how the world goes around. Drawing Pone is easy, because we have a certified audience. But don’t expect it to be so easy we can get 1000 followers. People are smarter than that.

I understand what you mean. Now I feel bad because it sounds like I was just complaining for more followers, I’m sorry if it sounded like that. It’s just that, I see so many artists on here, they all have their own style, their own audience and everything. Then I look at myself and don’t see that, like it’s just dull, empty, nothing to it. This fandom has so many great artists that I feel it’s pointless for me to try to add anything. Almost as if I’m just some pathetic, wannabe artist for even attempting to be good like everyone else.

At least artists don’t that THAT much trouble. I’m a writer and things have just gone worse with the time, to the point that it’s not even worth trying.
