Part 2: perfectblue97.deviantart.com/a…
I haven't done a multi-part comic for a while, so here goes. There are going to be 5-6 pages in this one. This is an unofficial sequal to an earlier comic that I made (perfectblue97.deviantart.com/a….
I wanted to do a comic with no actual dialogue, and this is what I came up with. Originally, this story was going to be about Derpy, but I totally re-wrote it and changed the ending to make it about Carrot Top.
I created most of the content in Inkscape, and then exported it to Photoshop to put it together.
I made an extra effort to use my own vectors for this comic, particularly when it came to backgrounds. Up until now, I've been copy/pasting other people's vecotrs in. This time I've done all of my own backgrounds and my own ponies. OK some parts are obviously copied from the show (The whole of Frame 9, for example, is copied from the show). But at least I copied it myself rather than using somebody else's vectors.
The main logo was drawn by Greseres (greseres.deviantart.com/art/ML…. The font is Celestia Redux (mattyhex.deviantart.com/art/Ce…. Carrot Top's Cutie Mark is Carrot Top Cutie Mark by ArcticKiwi (browse.deviantart.com/art/Carr…. I used VoaxmasterSpydre's Whhaaaaa?! (voaxmasterspydre.deviantart.co… as a base for frame 14. Though I couldn't get the expression quite right.
The story is quite simple. Carrot Top is throwing up in the morning (Frame 1 to Frame 4), is putting on weight (Frame 5 to Frame 6) and is experiencing weird food cravings (Frame 7 to Frame 8). In Frame 10, Nurse Readheart gives her the good news. She's with Foal. She doesn't take it so well, and neither does her Colt Friend Caramel.
It signifies a moments of quiet realization before a dramatic event.
Daffy Duck pushes an anvil off of a cliff on to Bugs Bunny, but it hits a trampoline and bounces back up.
Just before the anvil hits him, Daffy Duck looks directly at the audience with his eyes open wide, he blinks twice and holds up a sign saying "Ouch", and then the anvil hits him.
The Tick was to show that she matched them in frame 5 but not in frame 6.
It's interesting to see how different people see the symbols. I think that the Fish muffins on the first page are probably the most obvious.
He seems like a bit of a jerk to me.
I'll handcuff him to Carrottop so he doesn't run away!
Uh oh. Looks like Caramel's gonna become a "deadbeat dad". So tragic!
And...FISH MUFFINS??? That's enough to make ME puke, and I don't get morning sickness!
Wow, Caramel better step up.
