Improving Skills - Part 18 by BCRich40 Improving Skills - Part 18 by BCRich40
And here's the next part!

A bit shorter comic this time. Nothing too special.

Wait... That's not true at all!

I'm actually really satisfied with this part. There's only a few things wrong with it, but they are really minor things. I just wasn't able to fix them without drawing everything all over again. Three of the panels were really difficult ones to draw, but in the end they turned out okay. Expression still need more work, but they are looking a way better now.

If you didn't notice already, I tried a few new things with this part. So far, I have done speech bubbles with a program called Comic Life. It's a nice and easy program to use, but there's some major flaws with it. Now I finally started to make everything with Photoshop. It's a bit slower and more difficult way, but it gives me so much more freedom! Speech bubbles look a bit horrible, but that's just a minor thing to fix. By the way, I'm not going to use that font in the future. That's just a horrible font.

What else... Well, I did some fixing with my drawing technique! I just found a more comfortable way to draw comics, that's all. I also learned a few neat tricks with Photoshop.


Like I said, this part is a bit shorter than two previous ones, and it's not even that funny. The dialogue is pretty horrible too, but that's the best I was able to come up with. It's just so difficult to pack so many thoughts in a couple of speech bubbles. Part 19 will be a long one... and difficult to draw!

That's pretty much all I have to say. I pushed myself to the limit, and that's why I'm pretty satisfied with the end result.

And big thanks to my pre-reader, :iconmudpony:.

Happy new year, everyone!

I don't know why she is so hung up on this. Considering mares vastly outnumber stallions in Equestria, same sex relationships and even polygamy would be a very common thing.

Of course not, but it's essentially a giant innuendo at worst, a largely suggestive comic at best.

being suggestive isn't a bad thing considering the younger users of this website wouldn't get the same joke us adults do without it being explained to them and before you start saying deviant art isn't suited for kids I shall remind you that parents do have the option to turn mature content off to keep them safe.

I'm glad to hear you won't be using that font in the future.

"Hey, Dash! I'm into mares now, even though I thought I was only into stallions yesterday. Let's make out!"
Sounds good to me. Although after Dash rescues you from drowning and gives you mouth-to-mouth, it might be more expedient to not bother with words at all.
