MLP: FIM - Without Magic - Part 4 by PerfectBlue97 MLP: FIM - Without Magic - Part 4 by PerfectBlue97
This is part 4 of my ongoing Pony comic.

Princess Celestia has magically transformed Twilight Sparkle into an Earth Pony, after deciding that she has become too dependent on her magic. There have been some tears, some tantrums, and some hugging, too.

Now, Twilight has set out to find somepony to help her in her quest to find out how Earth Ponies do things without magic.

Part 1: [link]
Part 2: [link]
Part 3: [link]

I've used gameguy001 's Sweet-Apple-Acres as a background for all frames ([link]).

Twilight Sparkle is an altered version of my Twilight Sparkle vector from Page 3 ([link]).

Apple Bloom from Frame 3 is based on Saveman71's [link] The color and the style didn't match my own color\style. Particularly the line thicknesses, so I created my own vector from scratch, using it as template.

Apple Bloom from Frame 7 is a combination of images. I re-used some of the components from my previous Apple Bloom vectors, and overlayed them on an image of Derpy crying from one of my earlier pony pieces ([link]).

The pose is identical to CommyPink's Sad day...-Apple Bloom vector 1 [link]. So I used it as a guide when I re-sized\positioned Apple Bloom's face and mane. I also used it as a template for the eyes.

I don't honestly remember where the image of Derpy came from. I remember modifying it from somewhere else, but I cannot remember where. It could be this video on Youtube ([link]).

The cloak was scratch drawn, but it is based on Trixie's cape. I used Why485's Pony Fashion Study ([link]) as a guide, but altered the decorations and added a hood to turn the cape into a cloak. It was inspired by Twilight Sparkle's dress from The Best Night Ever.

Twilight seems to be a little bit more emotional without her magic.

Love this comic! Its so funny!I love deviantART! 

Oh, Correct me if I'm wrong, but something tells me you didn't grow up in the south. Just a bit of friendly advice on the southern slang, no one will ever address a single person as "Y'all" no matter how southern one may be.    y'all is slang for "You All" You say it to either a group or a couple of people. :)

These days, I think that a lot of people pick up their accents\phrases from the TV. Rather from real life.

The speak the way that they think that they are expected to speak.

You only need to go into an inner city area and listen to non-white teenagers speaking. You can often be totally different from the way that their parents speak because they are trying to emulate rappers or actors on TV shows.

You can have an Italian American family where the grandfather speaks like they are from southern Italy, the father speak perfect accentless English, but the kids speak like they are auditioning for the Sopranos.

I didn't pick my accent up from my family, I know that. I sound very different to them.

And..How does that have anything to do with what the person said? This is obviously not the case here for the MLP characters, because, ya know, they don't live in the real world, and they actually ARE southerners...And 90% sure they don't have TV either. 

Point is, you can't just say "This is what the real world is like" as an excuse for a mistake, nobody's perfect.

If you read below I already agreed with Perfect Blue earlier on. Plus, looking at it now for a second time the use of it for differentiating characters in dialog does significantly help. 
Relaxing :glomppoke:
