Dear Pinkie Pie,
I am afraid I must call upon you and your friends to help further Discord’s rehabilitation. In particular, he needs lessons in practical joking. As you are specially suited for this lesson, I am entrusting him to you and Rainbow Dash. Please do not let him anywhere near Fluttershy, as I fear she is most ill-fitted.
I shall be by with Discord shortly; right after I prepare a de-petrification spell and find my titanium baseball bat.
A friend of mine in college had an alternate name for Valentine's Day: Singles Awareness Day
. It fits.
I'm sure we'll see a lot of art and comics devoted to the ponified holiday this week, and who am I to resist the flow? Besides, Discord's a fun character to write. What started as a pretty straightforward prank grew and took on a life of its own. My only regret is that I chose to draw the two most visually complex characters in the series!
Which I why I'm grateful for the statute vectors
. It gave me some flexibility with a time-sensitive project.
Fontspace.com provided the My First Crush
style font. Remember to read the instructions in the zip file before using the font so you can get the hearts effect.
And if you happen to be on your own this hallmark holiday, keep in mind that you are still celebrated by friends and family and that's not something to forget.
Happy Valentine's/Singles Awareness/Hearts and Hooves Day!Update:
By special request, an enlarged and clean version of Panel 6
Never invested much in a day like today, but I am feeling the love.
Not only do I get to have my art featured on Equestria Daily,
my comic was also translated into Russian
which is pretty amazing. And a Google search has revealed this piece on various websites and blogs across the net.
Thank you everyone! It is a true rush to know that people across the world are enjoying my work and sharing in my enjoyment of these characters!
