How would you rate Comic #74 out of 10 /mlp/?
>>33428767And here's the 20/20 comic.
>>33428793Hmmmkay, that's understandable.
>>33428793The art in this issue is profoundly ugly.
>>33428813>Bipedal... Okay, this new artist is concentrated ass. I'm going to skip this shit issue and wait for pencils' comic instead.
>>33428863>I have friends in the futuredepression, but also hope.
Oof, that new artist. Only made it worse for her by putting it next to a master of the style.
>>334288427/10Retreads some of the same ground that "Flutter Brutter" already covered, but having some of the Young Six here was cool, and I think we got hints of a new ship out of it.
>>33428911That's all of it. Hope you enjoyed the double feature /mlp/!Link to IDW 20/20 archive:http://www.mediafire.com/file/w19vnht7rswts4r/IDW+20-20.rarLink to Comic #74 archive again too:http://www.mediafire.com/file/pmr1bij6rikhkmg/%2374.rar

>>334289159.5/10It would have probably sucked if it weren't pencils or price.
>>33428821>EverycreatureI still hate it. Please let the school and kids fuck off in S9.
>>33428887>The colorist forgot to add some eye spotsPencils can never get a fair deal.
>>33428842Wasn't as bad as feared/10, though Kate Sherron could use more experience. Yona is pretty cute, though.
>>33428867>And chaos godsBALLOONS FOR THE BALLOONS THRONE, PARTIES FOR THE PARTY GOD
>>33428913So that's it? Nothing happens except for the same lesson that's already gone over 100 times now and no explanation as to what even caused the time-travel in the first place.
>>33428915To be sincere? It felt completely hollow and padded.The only positive part was Pencils' art and nothing else, but that's Anderson's writing for you.
>>33428950Better? Not sure there's much that can be done for the first Twilight from that angle.
>>33428970See? Even a 4channer cares more about the final product than an IDW staffer.Poor Pencils.
>>33428970MUCH better, thanks.
>>33428967Never tell IDW writers to make a special; they'll just do the most basic crap to get back to their OCs.
>>33428913>>33428915Hmm, not as good as I was hoping. I was kind of hoping for a "Celestia has to take care of filly-ized mane six" kind of plot; The art is INCREDIBLE and its really cute seeing them like this, but the overall plot is a bit of a letdown.8.5/10 for it, all of it almost completely from the art.>>33428921Hasn't this been leaked already?
>>33428988>Hasn't this been leaked already?Based on what I found in the Sunset thread, different people get different preview scenes when they're logged in. Parts of it are up, but not the whole thing.
>Not even a single Doctor Hooves jokeMan, talking about wasted potential. Oh well, I'm still going to purchase this issue to support Pencils and I hope someday they finally give him a non shit writer to work with.
>>334289154/10 The only thing that makes it worth reading is Pencil's art. Such a shame to waste a time-travel story on 20 pages of the lesson from the first episode.My only two takeaways from this are:>Hey those cat people look pretty cooland>What the hell, Spike is 20 years old.
>>33428816My elder sister calls me big brother, don't think too hard about this.
It's amazing how you can spend 25 pages of a comic and have no conflict at all.
>>33429024It's amazing how you can fill 25 pages with absolute-FUCKING nothing.This wasn't a comic, it was more like a filler retelling you things you already know.
>>33429003how do you know the mane six are 20 years old?
>>33428863>"...I have friends in the future?"MY HEART
>>33428915To be honest this just was 25 pages of pencils fanart. The history would be a cool 2 part comfy episode(like S1 season finale) of the season 4/5 if we remove the cats but the plot was waste in this comic
>>33429041Didn't the official summary say they go back 20 years in the past?
>>33429051This comic had no plot, only a straight line of exposition.I don't think Pencils had enjoyed much when he was drawing this.
>>33429052>Ponyville’s most courageous and magical ponies celebrate friendship and fun in this adventure set twenty years in the past!Then again though,>comics>canon
>>334288427.5/10 Pixie Cut is a cute and Zephr Breeze isnt acting like a jackass or a creep and is pretty dam likable here. Also I smell a new ship brewing.
>>334289156.5/10good art, but weak story.
>>33428988>Dat spoilerREEEEEEEE!!!! DAMN YOU ACE THRUSTER!!!
>>33428915Pencils/10 and unfortunately he seems to be taking expressions and body language inspiration from seasons 5-8 which isn't good.The hoof gesticulating is fine though, they don't bend in a goofy way like human arms.At least Anderson segmented them into 2 groups, 20 pages isn't much, but he didn't do jackshit for 20 pages, (outside of Pencils' visual energy), what he did there could have been accomplished in 4 pages. 20 pages is like 5 minutes worth of real-time content, but content wise there's only 10% happening compared to stuff like Dexter's Lab and PPG which condense a shit ton of content in 5-8 minutes.I especially dislike the dialogue and how Pencils is half forced to cater the expressions and body poses to the dialogue. Seems like the comic book is 95% dialogue and unfortunately this is some illiterate fucking sentence structuring and some poor dialogue exchanges.Factually you could salvage a good portion of this comic if you got someone literate to write some interesting charming interactions. It won't save the shitty story, but it will become Faust-tier level of filler, as in charming and eloquent, Faust used to make sitting through filler a pleasure. (like every good writer for children's cartoons or tv series based on dialogue)Ugh IDW once again promises to "expand on the original story left behind" but fails to deliver. This was not the Chronicles part 2 I wanted since S1.The fillies interact, but mediocre, and only for like 20% of the comic(4 pages). Which is a lot for IDW, the asshats who advertise something on the cover and deliver another.
>>33428915A complete waste of a time travel story. Dull and forgettable. Art was nice.
>>33429385AND AS USUAL Pencils' artwork is watered down whenever he works with IDW the talent suckers. Especially because of the horrid color artist/shading artist which has been sucking the soul out of every mlp comic since day 1.Again someone could fix this, just like the dialogue.But with all that talent we might as well write a new comic book.
>>33429412I agree about the art, but let’s be honest, even the shittiest writer at IDW is a better writer than Pencils.
>>33428800WTF is this art?1. Fluttershy face in the third panel is just whack2. Gallus has a tumor on his face in the first panel3. Fluttershy is suddenly smaller than a young colt in the fifth panel
>>33428842Piece of shit>artist doesnt watch the show, can barely draw and a goes all over the place with the impressions and reactions the characters make, especially Fluttershy who behave like Pinkie>writer doesnt even know basics from the one episode he did watch and that Zephyr is the younger brother of Fluttershy>plot involves diversity 62/10
>>33428863She need to tell her she will lose her virignity to an eldritch chaos abomination
>>33428915EH for something with such interesting idea as time travel, this one is BORING AS FUCK. It almost feels like a recap of previous seasons. Nothing interesting going on, no AJ seeing her parents, no warning baout villains, nothing touching, nothing of value. And it ends with basically retconning itself from the comic series as well. What a fucking dissapointment. Its 6/10 just for the art.
>>33428842I honestly couldn't care less about it.>>33428915I quite enjoyed it, but I have to admit that the plot was kinda meh. Not that it was bad either, it was just nothing, it felt like the comic equivalent of a clip show. I guess that was kinda the idea, all the IDW 20 thing is just a celebratory event, but at the end it's a bit disappointing wasting a time travel plot on something like this.The art was definitely the best part of it, and it's indubitably what saved the comic. Waiting for the HQ rip to crop some panels.>>33428918Speaking of celebrations, it would have been funny if today's comic had come out at the same time as this. Anderson's idea of celebrating an event just by having the ponies standing there would look like a masterpiece compared to Cook's massive ego celebrating 75 issues by pretending that she's the best thing to ever happen to this franchise. I'm glad we're getting another Nightmare Knights next month and there's something to look forward to, because this comic is going to be such a massive trainwreck that it'll even make season 8 look good by comparison.Anyway, thank you as usual for storytiming the comics, OP. You don't get the recognition you deserve.
>>33429602Aw, just now I realize that the colorist probably fucked up that panel. it's pretty obvious that that was supposed to be Dash's wing.
>>33428848Who of those is actually Catrina? Except the guy to the left.>>33428869Ponyville is Gravity Falls of Equestria, now it seems.Wtf Celestia, making her princess was your masterplan all along, that cutiemark is on Tree of Harmony.Or wait, did it become a masterplan that same day? What a mess.
>>33428866PROTIP: You don't always have to be such an asshole.
>>33428970But there probably will be YP HQ release later which will also need edit.
>>33428803They even wrote **Baby Sister** in bold.Also Zephyr finally shaved himself, nice!>>33428811Faaaces.Oh look, race-swapped Sugar Belle! What's that, a dragon with a mane?>>33428813Do we have sentient bears now? Or they just roar and don't talk, but are actually good at manestyling?>>33428817Her styling is so bad, she had to cut her tail, lol. Also shipping time. But she is probably older.>>33428825Why, Yona's mane seems okay, just no braids. Wait, there were no braids from the beginning, but that's explainable.>>33428841So, where's Babs? She also got a manestyling cutiemark. What a wasted opportunity for a reference opportunity.
>>33428858>Ponk>>33428869>Twi's wagging her tail>>33428900>Dash and Flutters>>33428904>Last panel TwilightHeck, the whole comic is a pile of cute overload>>33428911Celestia's a big hoers>>33428915>>33428883>Wing hugging 'shy is yellowIts shit, 0/10 back to the colouring boardActually 9,1/10, pretty cute and wholesome

The art is pretty great and I love the style, I just wish we'd have an actual story/plot for once. Got some nice Sunbutt though out of the comic.
>>33429720Great, there is a porn version of it.
>decemnt art, bleh writingWhen has this NOT been the case? Besides Fosgitt comics.
>>33429818Remind me please.
>>33429841>my shitty meme didn't magically come trueFtfy
>>33429841And it didn't? Merry Christmas?
>>33429818I like how you call it a fiasco but you ignored the others like best frenemies and long cruel woman.This is kill pepe levels of cringe
Pretty bland comics overall. Absolutely forgettable storywise.
https://www.equestriadaily.com/2019/01/my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-2020.html#disqus_threadNot even Equestria Daily's biggest IDWankers can avoid talking about the shit story and how Pencils' art was all wasted there.
>>33428869>i grow up into a big, sexy alicorn
>>33429666It became her plan when she became her student, this was her test to know if she was to enter a school, let alone be her special student.
>>33429666Celestia didn't make her a princess. Did she know or suspect Twilight would be the EoH's chosen one, though? Very likely yes
>>33428817SHOT TAIL = WHORSE
>>33429669Cry me a river, pansy-ass.
Regardless of anything else, old AJ and new AJ butting heads is incredibly cute.also, is it just me or is young AJ way more macho and a show off than old AJ?
>>33428863>where'd you get the hat from?
>>33432334One would almost think that AJ WANTED her parents to die.
>>33431042Showing off her mare bits to the world.
>>33428817>ugly earrings>short tail that isn't even styled nicelyawful oc.
>>33428915I liked Pencils, that's all.The plot was meh.
>>33429968I see your meme and challenge it with another
>>33428915What was the point of this?
>>33428821>other creaturesgod fucking dammit, just say ponies
>>33433261Anon I don't know if you've noticed but there are other species at this convention.
>>33433166To sell a comic with an interesting enough premise and with good art so they wouldn't have to worry whether the story lived up to it.
>>33433686Adorablererness going to the limit
>>33428848IS THIS FUCKING LOSS REFERENCE?
>>33433692>>33433695Wait what the fuck. Why my gifs got edited? (They must've wiggled extremely fast, 1ms between frames)
>>33433720Okay, have this instead.
Bump for the eventual HQ rips.
>>33434270This. Yayponies is falling behind, again.
>>334289158/10Mostly because Pinkie was S1/2 cute in this one.
>>33428818I want a bishi hippogriff bf.
>>33428817unironically cute as hell
>>33435006That comic came out in October. What does the schedule look like for an IDW artist?
Would you be able to handle a full size and a filly Pinkie at the same time /mlp/?
So will zephyr finally get off the Dash train and start shooting for a girl more on his level now?>>33435173Most people couldn't handle a single one, let alone two.
What bothers me the most about the 20/20 story is the absolute lack of people on the streets and how nobody on Ponyville makes a deal out of the young Mane6 being next to their older counterparts.I fucking hate stories where the planet is suddenly deserted save for the main protagonists.
>>33436764>random BG ponies gawking at the purple alicorn they had no clue existed>also being flabbergasted at the young and grown ponies all around with the same cutie marksMissed opportunity there.
>>33436867Pencils deserved a better writer.
>>33434270>>33436227There seems to be a problem with the special, Comixology only shows a half size version (1076x1650), even though the preview is much larger.Here's a copy of YayPonies temporary rip. It seems like the best we can get right now only looks marginally better than OP's rip.https://transfer.sh/8Xz5W/idw2020.cbzI'm counting on Salem-Empire for a better rip, but they wait over a month before releasing new comics. Assuming they use a different source or they know how to deal with Comixology's fuckup.
>>33436867After meeting their future selves poniville got displaced in a between-time-and-space area which looks like world in current moment of time but without any inhabetants except some bears. Also Celestia can go there freely.
>>33437093Thanks for the update and link Anon. Wish I could find out how to get those rips myself.
>>33437190The guy who rips the comics posts the links in the YayPonies Discord server (there's an invite in YayPonies, next to the other links: index, faq, irc, *Discord*, twitter, etc).Allegedly, the admin of YayPonies should publish these links, but he's usually pretty slow updating the page.
>>33437296Can't these retards just post the links on IRC? They can even set up a bot to do that and never bother again.Why even bother keeping up a website if you're gonna post half of the stuff that comes out in your private dickscord circlejerk.
I tried something out. How does pic related look compared to >>33437093 or one of the normal HQ rips?Does this seem pixely, artifact-ed, or anything else that could be wrong compared to normal?
>>33437350It's pretty preposterous. The thing is, the original admin stopped caring about comics years ago. Then this new guy, unrelated to YayPonies, started buying the comics and packing them, and for many months he simply shared the links on a pastebin as some kind of unofficial YayPonies rips. Eventually the admin decided to add those comics to the page. For like a couple of comics, he updated the page when there was a new comic, so the guy who ripped the comics stopped updating the pastebin because it was unnecessary. And then the admin simply stopped updating the page without prior notice, so the latest comics are just buried on a discord server now.>>33437790It looks a bit noisy, but I'd say that it looks better than >>33437093 upscaled with Waifu2x. For reference, here's the preview. Which, for some reason, is slightly smaller.
Fuck it, I'm going to post the other three HD pages of the preview here because why not.
>>33437867Then someone needs to stay on Discord after comic release and wait for links, right?
>>33437882twilights parents never got their memory erased from seeing an older alicorn twilight, did they?
>>33437929They got a blast of Obliviate the first.
>>33437867Yeah, I know the story.Pastebin was here in case it's revived:https://pastebin.com/RsSrSfQDFucking discord kids.
i made a thingrespect the thing
>>33437995I respect the thing, but mostly to bother >>33437998.
>>33437867Noisy is a fair assessment. Downloading the comixology version of this in thier app on Bluestacks then taking a screenshot of it full screen on a 4k screen in portrait mode turned out a lot better than I thought it would though.
>>33438220Hey, this is a pretty good idea. Never used Bluestacks myself, can you set the screen size somewhere? Judging by the preview, maybe 1987x3056 is the native resolution, and the screencaps would look better if you used a screen with those dimensions. I have no idea if there's a way to check the actual native resolution of the comic, it really sucks that Comixology limits the web viewer to a much smaller version, you can clearly tell that the app is getting the HQ version.
>>33439127You can set the screen size to whatever you want from the settings. It acts like an android device, so you just have to install an app for rotation control and then there's a built in screenshot button for that as well.
>>33428841We have a new tony fleecs
>>33440173IDW needed another shit artist to counter Pencils' quality art.
>>33428811>there's a freaking alicorn in the backgroundthey're just testing us at this point guys.
>>33429602>>33429614Something still seems off about Dash's face...It kind of looks like the drawings from the Dawn Somewhere shorts.
>>33440729She has long Flutters' hair.
>>33429614The colorist also used a fucking texture bucket fill on the bushes.
Bump cause I want to try and crop a bunch of stuff tomorrow if I have time.
>>33441865You're going to get bapped if you don't do it at all.
>>33442456>allI usually just do whatever sticks out to me unless Anons point out specific stuff.
>>33442721I don't know if he's still around, but for what it's worth this Anon here >>33429701>>33429712requested some stuff.
This might take a while since I like a lot of the things in here. All 6 of these are just the first page.>>33442832Right. I'll see what I can do.
Feel free to point out if anything seems odd in these by the way. Sometimes I have to try and reconstruct certain parts of the characters if there's something overlapping a part of a face or something, so some of it is bound to not look 100% natural.
>>33442912Do you make those in Paint? Why all the pixels?
>>33442955I assume you mean at the edges? I'm doing it in Photoshop with mostly the magic wand and a really small paintbrush to touch things up. Anti-aliasing was making some of the cropping take longer since it would keep some off looking colors with a low transparency when it selected things, so to make life easier I turned it off.The last step I do is usually taking the edge replacing all of them with black pixels to correct anything the magic wand didn't catch. Now that I'm thinking of it, there should be a way for me to smooth the edges there if I looked hard enough.
>We will literally never going to see Discord in Pencils art in our lifetime
>>33442975There are some ways, but I'm not yet sure how do they work.https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/smooth-edges-photoshop/https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop-elements/using/smoothing-selection-edges-anti-aliasing.html
>>33443068I'm looking into Autotrace in Illustrator. I know that program is used for vector art, so if the tracing works well enough for the edges then that solves my problem.
>>33443068I did the... something (dunno how it translates)... with 0,6 parameter.
>>33443093Problem with feathering, which is what that looks like, is that you're just making the edges of the image transparent. I'd rather try and smooth the whole thing out at full opacity if possible.
>>33443103Yeah, that looks not good enough
Lets see how this looks compared to >>33442916.
>>33428883I feel like this is going to have something horrible underneath it
>>33443198Much better. I'll do it this way with the rest I think.
>>33443258>random V in her eyeOdd little mishap there in the source.
>>33442976Maybe he will make a cover for this shitty cosmo arc
This is the only thread series with honest reviewers in it. The rest of the posters are still retards who can't admit that there's many major distinct differences between S1 and S2-S8.
>>33429701>>33429712I'll try and get to these Thursday night/Friday morning as long as the thread is still alive since I'm going in late that day.
>>33449889No rush, thanks Anon
>>33450775You could have posted it though.Fuck, it's bad, the colorist didn't do a good job. It's not even just the eyes, the original background was more detailed too.
>>33451333Them light rays. Probably the scene should have been darker and in the forest in Pencils' vision.
>>33451333God fucking dammit, this is enraging.
>>33451381This is IDW for you, anon. The fuck happened to Breckel's usual good color jobs? I'm going to assume they are screwing up Pencils' art on purpose just because he's a 4channer and I'm going to stick to this until the end of times.
>>33451451I assume incompetence rather than malice, generally.
>>33451471After getting to know IDW's staff's horrible behavior, biased personal tastes and infinite grudge against 4chan, I think is safe to always assume malice from them and from anyone who's trying to defend or justify them, anon.They are horrible people, there's no way to excuse or defend anything they do.
>>33451511yeah, just like your waifu
>>33451333WE NEED ALL THE ORIGINAL NON-COLORED NO DIALOGUE BUBBLE ARTWORK.WE NEED TO RECOLOR IT.WE NEED TO HACK & FIRE HEATHER BRECKEL AND MAKE HER LIFE A LIVING HELL. HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU KEEP LETTING 1 COLOR ARTIST BEHIND EVERY COMIC? AND I MEAN EVERY COMIC USES THIS 1 RETARDED PERSON. DID SHE SUCK IDW's CEO dick? every night? every day? every morning? WHO THE FUCK IS IDW? WHO THE FUCK KEEPS HIRING IDW?
>>33451805Well, if Pencils is still /ourguy/ he may actually release that.Does coloring go before adding bubbles or after?
>>33451480you might have an obsession and paranoia which may lead to an early suicide at age of 40
>>33451824 Considering the tiny bit of Pencils linework lacks speech bubbles, it seems the coloring may happen before adding bubbles, just to avoid any potential coloring errors especially with backgrounds.
>>33452012shilling idw will not help you to get laidjust sayin...
OK, let's do this.

>>33452991I can do that but I am a lazy fuck.
>>33451333I would not doubt this is because the colorists don't actually do their shit by hand, but rather run it through some kind of "smart" coloring program or just use magic wand+paint bucket in order to get shit done quick.
>>33452354is this getting a physical release?
>>33454238Yep, and it even has a retailer incentive cover.IDW sells the regular version on their pagehttps://www.idwpublishing.com/product/my-little-pony-idw-20-20/The shipping costs to Europe are fucking insane though.

>>33454259Damn. I wonder why i couldn't pick it up though amazon like a usually do. Not even a out of stock notice. Had to go though midtown comics.
>>33454259Filly Rarity wants to make a dress out of Luna's tail.
what pony comics are worth reading? i remember reading from the beginning and reading a decent amount before falling off. when does glimmer show up?
>>33457824none! not canon at all! bad! bad!Glim is in Frens Forevar 35 and FiM 47-50. Also Legends of Magic 4.
>>33457852her and trixie get a comic together with friends forever?
>>33457858No, but 37 is about Trixie+Rarity. 36 and 38 are also good.imo:Lewends of Magic is good, also followed by ongoing Nightmare Knights.I'd reread from time to time: Nightmare Rarity arc (5-8, because of NR ofc), Big Mac arc (9-10, slice of life with tons of easter eggs), Neigh Anything (11-12, highscool comedy about Cadance and Shining), Reflections (17-20, about Celestia falling in love which almost doomed Equestria), Ponyville Days (30-31, major feud divided town and it became total mess), Siege of Crystal Empire (Fiendship01, 34-37, Sombra's lover brings him back from the dead)Ponies of Dark Water (43-45, M6 became evil, CMC to the rescue), Chaos Theory (47-50, Discord becomes god of order and forces hivemind onto ponies)From the Shadows (51-53, some dumb unicorn attacking libraries destroying books)Convocation of Creatures (61-62, tons of pony world lore),Return of Tempest Shadow (67-68)Also issues 42, 57, 58, 60, 64, 65, 72 and 73.
>>33457887ive read the first 3 arcs at least i guess i can look at some of the others
>>33457824She shows up, steals everyone's spotlight and saves the day during the Accord arc. She also has a minor cameo during the Elections two parter, then has a role during LoM 4, when she visits her boyfriend at the crystal empire.Apparently the IDW staff knows she's extremely polarizing among the fans because she hasn't appeared since then. Which makes sense, since with the comic sales being so close to the danger zone, the least they want is another shitstorm to piss off the few readers they still have.
>>33457902>Apparently the IDW staff knows she's extremely polarizing among the fans because she hasn't appeared since then.I have to say that I think that having Trixie replacing Starlight in #73 was legitimately funny. It was incredibly random.
>>33452439I'm getting strong appledash vibes from this one
>>33457951I forgot what was in #73 already...Does anyone have a hq rip of it?
>>33458057Herehttps://mega.nz/#!GIBnFSZD!PcGkzDzvPkWhpRS8Te0hUFat2DxnzPco7zzS0s-HjqsI mean, she didn't do anything, she didn't have a role in the comic, it's just that she was there with the other girls in one of the pages, but she had no reason to be there, and there was no Starlight.It was like a random page from an alternate universe where Trixie was the one who joined the main cast.
>>33458065Probably that page was meant to have Starlight on it but Pencils got a note to redraw her as Trixie to avoid more damage to the comic's sales?Comic sales dropped down the 6K range, and we know that as soon they go below 5K the comic will die.
>>33458065Oh right, I seem to have deleted it because it is cbz. Thanks.
>>33457887Not much lore in it since comics arent officially canon. Even Sombra is returning ins9 which openly contradict siege of crystal empire
>>33458096But I still enjoy these stories.Also there is no proof that Sombra is returning in s9.
>>33458104There is. Leaks from2017. Same that predhicted reindeers in best gift ever
>>33458124Well, some random sprites are not really premiere plot.>>33452086>>33452033
>>33458153>spritesYou have no idea what you are talking about, yes?
>>33458170Okay, is there something more to those 2017 leaks everybody apparently knows about? Because they don't tell
>>33458096>Even Sombra is returning ins9Technically, Sombra returned in season 5 too, and I'm pretty sure that when they were producing The Cutie Re-Mark, they had similar character sheets with Sombra.Not saying that he /won't/ come back for real this time, not saying that the show won't contradict the comics, but certainly >>33458153 doesn't really prove anything yet.
>>33458193>underaged faggot uses words he do not understand to pretend he's wise and attention worthy

>>33458407I do, but that doesn't apply here.
>>33458441Oh, I remembered. It is called>baseright?Or maybe not. Whatever.Still you can say that I am a faggot anyway because I make mistakes sometimes. I thought it was something interesting and you know something more about leaks, but you just wanted to call someone a faggot. Ahahah.Thank you I had fun writing this post.
>>33458479I wasn't the Anon that called you a faggot.
>>33458489Yeah, whatever, sorry then.
>>33458407It's a flash model, you stupid motherfucker. Game sprites and flash assets are completely different things, you ignorant asswipe.Now put mommy's phone down and culturize yourself so you don't disgrace yourself again, imbecile.Sprites, my black ass.
>>33458743Thank you for explanation, but you didn't need to whine so much because I'm not an expert in the topic and don't know some terms.
>>33458914If you are not an expert then shut the fuck up, asswipe. What kind of attention whoring austard goes around talking about shit he has no idea about?Oh right: that's you. I assume you also talk about sex despite being an ugly and lonely permavirgin, right?
>>33458947But it was you who made a fuss about nothing.
Sad that pencils got in just before the comics cancelation. I almost guarantee the cosmos one will probably be the last.>>33458087Trixie should have taken Starlight's role as unnofficial 7th member.
>>33458997At least he made Jay Fosgitt suffer the humilliation of being replaced by a 4channer.
>>33457824My 2 cents.Be warned that the comics can swing widely in the quality spectrum, and more recently by the feel of these threads it's been in the negative. This is my usual copy pasta of recommendation though:In the main comics it's give or take depending on the person. Keep in mind with these that from Comic #51 and on the comic staff tried way harder to keep the issues consistent with the show, so earlier issues will have at times striking contradictions with the show.The Return of Queen Chrysalis and Nightmare Rarity arc (#1-#4 and #5-#8) were well received. Nightmare Rarity more than Chrysalis. The Pets comic (#23) gets a mention for having a great start only to be ruined when the ponies started talking, but I'd give it a read till that point just cause the pets are fantastic in it. Pinkie's comic (#42) was really nice and had a cute ending. I also liked the Zen and the Art of Gazebo Repair arc (#9 & #10), Neigh Anything arc (#11 & #12), and the Trixie Babs stuff in the Manehattan Mysteries arc (#20 & #21).Micro series I'd say the Rarity, Pinkie, CMC, Celestia, and Luna issues (#3, #5, #7, #8, & #10) were great. Friends Forever series is a mixed bag. Spike and Celestia, Pinkie Pie and Luna, Babs Seed and Rarity, Twilight and Pinkie Pie, Applejack and Mayor Mare, Discord and Luna, Shining and Blueblood, Maud and Rarity, and Dash and Soaren issues (#3, #7, #12, #13, #15, #20, #26, #29 and #36) were the ones that stood out to me, but there's a few decent ones to me apart from those. You can pick from those based on your interest in the pairs.In the Fiendship is Magic series it seemed like the Sombra and maybe Tirek ones were good (#1 & #2). Out of the Legends of Magic series I've liked them all so far, but #2 and #5 featuring Rockhoof and Somnambula respectively stand out there to me.Legends of Magic was pretty solid altogether, but I felt like the origin stories (#1-#6) were better. Rockhoof (#2) and especially Somnambula (#5) were great for me.
>>33459169I think the Power Ponies and Legends of Magic annuals were decent, but the others aren't really. The first 8 pages of the 2013 Annual details how Sunset fell out of grace with Celestia before going to the EqG universe for the first time, but otherwise the EqG annuals are just sad with how not good they are. I thought that short was pretty neat and worth it though if you care at all about her. There was also a pony pony holiday special with art from all the comic artists that was pretty comfy.
>>33449889I'll try and see what I can do with the already posted crops now that I have time and then go for the others I haven't done yet.
Just avoid anything written by Katie Cook after Zen and the Art of Gazebo repair, since after that two parger she decided to stop trying and just cash on her horse writer fame to sell the comics.Until today she has never recovered from the negative backlash she got from Reflections onwards, and she still carries the old grudge against the "haters" aka whoever doesn't give her the praises she thinks she's entitled to.
>>33442914Don't mind me. Just comparing stuff.
>>33459058Eh, fosgitt will still get work on other comics where they literally have zero quality control, so he's probably cool with it.
>>33429701Ponk, the Twi tail wag, and the first Dash were already posted, so here's the rest so far for that post.
>>33459944He sounded pretty butthurt when he ranted about people not appreciating his genius.
>>33429712This okay for the speech bubble-less page?
>>33429712I think these plus what's already in the thread will take care of everything else but the big Celestia. Wasn't able to pick a good one out of that page. Added a bonus Applehug cause it was easy to work in.
>>33460265Was still a bit of wall left in there.
Rest of the ones with the edges smoothed out.>>33442907>>33442911>>33442912>>33442917
>>33458997Im still mad we wont see him draw Discord
>>33460301Not the OR, but thanks a bunch for these all, Anon.Not that it matters, I'm not complaining or anything, but what rip did you use? Some of these look like upscaled rather than from the HQ rip, didn't you see it?
>>33460037How about PZAP-less page?
>>33460935I meant to use the HQ one, but I downloaded it without replacing the ones I had already made in Bluestacks. By the time I noticed I was on the wrong rip I was already done.>>33461044I'll see what I can do for that this weekend unless someone else does it quicker.
>>33461560Oh, how much did you spend on bubble-leess version?
>>33461577It was a lot easier than I thought to remove those. Maybe 30 minutes.Problem is life getting in the way of finding time.
>>33463349Cute fillies are cute.
>>33463349It was an adorable comic.
I'll be damned, I'm shipping the fuck out of Zephyr and Pixie.
>>33428842Art style is wonky, but surprisingly endearing on Zephyr and Pixie Cut.Pixie's really cute. Her interactions with Zephyr bring the best of the later.I'll give it my aproval. 9/10.
>>33428915Cute, but uneventful.Which I guess is exactly what they wanted. Some nice interaction between the older and younger six, with Pencil's stellar art to seal the deal (points deducted for the colorist just kinda ruining his artwork, though).It gets the job done, but I'll be lying if I didn't say I expected a bit more.I'll give it an 8/10.
>>33437929That was probably the first thing Celly did when the Twi's left for Ponyville.
Any news about the HD rips? Yayponies still doesn't have them, and their IRC is dead even though they switched to Canternet after Ponychat died.That only leaves the fabled discordfag posting links only in the seerkrit club.Any chance of someone here getting in there to lurk and reposting said links?I can archive all the comics indefinitely and upload them should someone request them in the future, but I'm not touching the discord botnet with a ten foot pole.
>>33466599I've edited pdfs of all comics: grouped them by arcs and removed all credits for better reading experience. And merged all doublepages.If anyone is interested, I may try to upload. But that's still gigabytes of stuff.
>>33466617I'm guessing all the comics from #1 to a certain point are from the humble bundle. The rest from Yayponies, or from somewhere else?
>>33466651I downloaded all of them from YP. But I guess they got 1-23 from HB (or somewhere else), since these issues don't have YP credits pages.
>>33466617I have all of them already, except for the newer ones they haven't uploaded. I downloaded the SD ones that get linked by OP every time, but I was hoping to find the HD ones eventually.I just figured someone would try and get in their discord. I see discord links posted left and right on this board, so I know for a fact at least some people on /mlp/ use it.
>>33466707Yeah, I have all of the comics but the last one. I hope we won't miss NK#5 in HD. I want to merge them into one pdf sooner.But I'm probably not touching Discord either, not using it.
>>33466707>I downloaded the SD ones that get linked by OP every time, but I was hoping to find the HD ones eventually.The HD ones that I've been posting in every thread since they stopped updating the Pastebin?>>33147494>>33203626>>33282063>>33307436>>33407966
>>33467484I checked, I've actually already replaced the SD ones with HD, yes. There is only one I'm missing, and that's issue #74. I haven't seen any HD link to that.I would miss IDW 20/20 too, but I made a cbz myself using the HD images posted separately. No official Yayponies HD of that either, though.Keep up the good work regardless.
>>33467933>There is only one I'm missing, and that's issue #74Well fuck, I didn't even realize it when I linked all those other threads. Here you go.https://mega.nz/#!XdJUXISb!dkWllwFbTJ85Z_ZQrE8_3rYzGTtmVw6CbUPVoALmduU>I would miss IDW 20/20 tooWell, you're missing the YayPonies page with Derpy, but even if they released the comic too, it'd be exactly what you already have. The pages posted here >>33452482 are the HD rip, only the few preview pages of Ponyville Mysteries #1 at the end are missing, but other than that you won't get a better version.
>>33468027>preview pagesWhy do they even add this stuff? It's completely unrelated. I mean, YP guys are probably ripping the pages from somewhere and then convert them to pdf and cbz. Couldn't they care a little bit more to remove ad pages?
HD vs SDWow, I'm reading these comic since the beginning, but never realized that multiple quality versions exists. I assumed that some are just simply released in a crappier quality.Now I have to find a way to check/re-download all of the comics in HD...Is there an easy way to get them all? I mean there are over 400 comics/books/etc ...
>>33468050There is YayPonies site, it has all the HD comics but it also has picrelated page and additional pages with short previews of other series. I recently thought that my autism really doesn't like this shit, so I downloaded a pdf editor and deleted all these extras. I may link a torrent if you want.There is an archive with all the books with varying quality (different formatting). The new book is going to be released on 7th, so guy who posts books will going to upload it.After the comics my autism suggested me that books look like crap too, so I'm eventually going to edit them all into similar format too.
>>33468068>books look like crap too, so I'm eventually going to edit them all into similar format too.What's wrong with the books?
>>33468298Too many white pages. I read them on my tablet and wondered if the file was corrupted, or it was a bug with the reader.Also I found out there are two books with small pages and big text, so there are 300 pages instead of normal 60.It's just my perfectionism, don't mind me, normal people.
>>33468330I could use the images to make a pdf, but I think that would break the text scaling. I'm pretty sure I've always taken the raw pdf from kindle/iTunes and just converted the file to other formats with the exception of the images I post. They're made with larger font for little kids I think.
>>33468455Then it seems the original pdfs are different.The most different is Legend of Everfree book, also it has scans as the images in the books archive.
>>33468027>Here you go.Thanks. I think I have all of them now.>>33468050Not all of them are HD. Only those that were missing until a few months ago, when they updated the site before abandoning everything again. Some of the older ones are HD too I think, but they're only on the onion archive, or maybe yayponies just gave them a different name.>>33468068Things look like crap because you probably have them all as pdf files. You should have books in epub and comics in cbz.The only advantage of pdf is compatibility, because you can open it everywhere, but it's not like those other formats are difficult to view.Epub is basically glorified HTML ( I even edited some fics I downloaded from fimfiction to have pictures embedded in the file instead of being links to imgur) and cbz is literally a zipped folder renamed to look like a file.
>>33469066Yeah, I prefer to have everything in pdf. One format for everything.
>>33469066Lel, first thing that showed up on google with "epub reader" made my text look like shit. And it's not even free license program.
>>33469151Just use Calibre. You can skip the whole library thing the main program opens with by opening files directly with ebook-viewer.exe. Select it as default program, and just forget about the rest. Just double clicking will open the file with it.If you can't view it correctly it was probably converted from some other format and got fucked up somehow.
>>33469182>converted from some other formatyes >>33468455
>>33469182Hm, yes, Calibra is much better, thanks. But I'm still going to make pdfs.
