This drawing is going to be my submission for the Deviant Art Artist Training Grounds week 2 theme, which is to draw a pony representing a country. There happens to be 5 representing Equestria in the last panel.
This comic was drawn in a single night while integrating the theme into the narration to keep in the same style as when I was doing the Artist Training Grounds on Equestria Daily.
I was not doing good on the top row of panels for some reason. My lines just weren’t working for me and I had to redo a lot. Getting that expression on Pinkie made it all worth it, though. Then I really started to pick up momentum for the bottom row and I thought I made the last panel pretty epic looking. This was my first time drawing guard type ponies and I even improvised with the designs for 3 of them.
So…where’s parts 1-5?
That’s a very good question. I’m currently still rebuilding my media base here since this site is and upgrade from my old one (and my old one used ye olde frames, so no direct import, unfortunately). Since I’ve got a pretty good chunk of time free coming up and I’m going to make the other pages first priority, they should be back up pretty soon. If you can’t wait, they can also be found at my Deviant Art account: http://kuroitsubasatenshi.deviantart.com/
