MLP:FiM – Cruel Joke


This is the first of at least two submissions going into the DA Artist Training Grounds group’s third weekly theme. The theme is to draw a pony influenced by Poison Joke (for those who don’t know, it’s a plant whose ‘poisonous’ pollen creates bizarre, joke-like effects instead of being deadly).

This is probably one of my fastest sketches, not counting the more messy versions I do in my comic panels, clocking in at just under an hour, including the last minute addition of the troll face (Apple Bloom herself only took about 35 mins). I’m still going to do a comic page and I even have an idea for it already, but this idea also popped into my head and I just had to draw it. Poor Apple Bloom is finally victimized by the Poison Joke, which is only fair since she seemed to get away scott free in Bridle Gossip.

    So that is supposed to be a pollen cutie mark? *Achoo* I’m surprised the CMCs haven’t tried tattoos yet. REBEL!

    • Not exactly. I guess it would be more clear if I did this in colour, but those are supposed to be the blue dots that indicated a malady with the main six during Bridle Gossip. Except in this case, the joke doesn’t need anything other than the spots to mess with Apple Bloom.
