Okay, I know that the MLP comics have been around for a while, but I've never read them. I just haven't, but then a buddy showed me these panels telling me that this actually happens in the comics.http://horsepower.emeraldcoastcomics.ne ... icbook.jpg
Holy shit! Chrysalis is one cold hearted evil bitch. I saw that and I no I don't support the abuse of animals, but damn am I amazed that they got away with that.
I draw grimdark stuff by the way and some people gave me shit about a certain drawing I made of Scootaloo getting really mad about those damn chicken jokes and going Kruger on some poor bastard and if those same people saw this they'd shit bricks.
And they shut down Fighting is Magic because they're worried its too violent?
I'm tempted to write a letter to the makers of the comics telling them how glad I am that those of us like me who actually enjoy the occasional grimdark material that they had the balls to put bunny squashing in an MLP comic and maybe traumatize the living hell out of the CMC. I don't know if that's a real bunny or not but that doesn't take away the fact that Queenie just turned it into a smear on the wall.
Maybe I should be reading these comics since now half the dark material I've made and my friends have made seems a lot less far fetched in that universe now. I don't usually get this overly excited about something based off of a few panel shots, but damn.
And no I haven't posted any of my grimdark drawings on this thread or plan to mainly because I have a sick sense of humor and I don't know if you guys would find an old traditional art picture I drew of Pinkie Pie slitting the throat of her evil internet counterpart to be as funny as I do. Don't worry, I drew it in a way so it looks more like it was in self defense than just some wanton act of murder.
It is one of my most viewed drawings though and some of the reactions people have to it are really interesting to read. They're all either really happy I drew it or are comically freaked out by it. One guy commented saying and I quote, "Yay someone with sense in the community."
I didn't say anything back, but I could not believe that someone had said that to me after I had drawn that.
My point is that people can be really funny sometimes without meaning to.
I wanted to reply to the guy saying something like, "Dude, are we looking at the same drawing?" but I didn't want to seem like I was insulting the guy for liking something I drew.
I know I'm the one who drew it, but even I'm aware that it should be an at least somewhat scary image.
