MLP: Flare Star, page 1 by KaizenWerx MLP: Flare Star, page 1 by KaizenWerx
One day I felt uninspired and started drawing a pony comic for fun. Before I knew it I was spending hours in GIMP coloring these!

This series is called Flare Star and is sort of like the Season 1 and 2 opening episodes of Friendship is Magic -- basically that means it has a plot. Also means it will last a while :o

The pages are structured to be similar to Manga because that's the only thing I'm used to. But you still read it from left to right, just like anything in English.

So that's it! Oh, and *my first upload* *please enjoy*, yaddayadda yadda!

And here I thought Twilight would be against Sci-Fi!

I see...Kinda makes you wonder 'how would Twilight react to Historical Fiction and Historical Non-Fiction?'

I'm not sure, but if she is like me she would probably complain that "historical fiction" sounds like an oxymoron. =P

Now that would take me back to my childhood. My mom called Historical Non Fiction a bunch of rubbish and kept telling me 'I wish you would read the REAL stuff in the FICTION section!' she had no idea what the hell fiction meant until I said 'Mom fiction means made up! Non Fiction is real! Don't believe me then pick up a dictionary and look up fiction and non fiction one is under the letter F and the other under the letter N.' she looked up both and her face went the color of a tomato in embarrassment saying 'You mean I've been reading baloney all these years and quoting it as fact?!' My dad answers 'Eeeyup! Fiction is made up theories about people Non Fiction is the cold hard factual truth!' Never again did my mom get the two confused and she went back and reread all the books she had read in fiction in Non Fiction this time and things started making more and more sense to her.

Actually, I didn't know they put them in fiction/nonfiction categories like that until you told me. I just thought it sounded silly to put historical (which is supposed to be fact) and fiction(something imagined) in the same category. :lol:

Oh yes there's Science Fiction,Science NON Fiction,Historical Fiction, Historical NON Fiction,Fiction,Non Fiction. I like a bit of each section that way I'm not considered a snob that sticks to only one kind of section.

That's good, but I'm sure everyone has a favorite. That wouldn't make you a snob in my opinion. =)
As for myself, I was never a big reader... or to quote JC Denton:

You drew all this? It's very consistent with the style in the show. :D

Thank you very much! Drew it twice actually, first in pencil then traced it digitally. I tried to keep the art style like the show's -- I think it turned out pretty good for the most part =)

It's helpful if you're like me and can't really draw digitally from the get go. But if you have a tablet I'd start with that. I'm planning on buying one eventually =)

So you scan pencil in to the computer and then trace with GIMP or something?

I use a combination of Free Select and the Paths tool in GIMP. Basically everything has to be redrawn using one tool or another, the sketch is just a base.

I have been cursed with a dirty mind too unfortunately. Well, you see, Twilight can't find a book called "Creatures of Equestria" this book most likely has female dragons in it. Spike is upstairs saying "Just a minute!"... I hate my mind.

I can't believe this many people were thinking the same, dirty thought..
Even me at one point :omfg:

When I first saw this on Equestria Daily I didn't see that there were other parts of the story. So I pondered a while and thought that maybe Spike had the book and was studying dragon "anatomy" in privacy if you catch my drift.
I've been on the Internet to long and really need a break from it before our minds fuse together completely.


Anyway, good job and keep em' coming!

...And I'm ashamed to say the same thought had occurred to me when I was sketching this page. But I told myself "No one is gonna think that". Guess I was wrong =P
