[MLP Comic] Midnight Eclipse by labba94 [MLP Comic] Midnight Eclipse by labba94
They say that if you want to display the cover of your comic in your profile page, you have first to draw it. Such a truthful advice =P Here is the cover of "Midnight Eclipse", the series I've been publishing here on dA (still ongoing)!

Description
The way I wrote this comic makes it really different (if better or worse... it's not up to me to decide) from the ones I usually read: it privileges comedy and somewhere even cynicism even though I based the whole thing on a plot I hope you'll find intriguing... or, at least, worth enough to have you continue reading this thing. That's why I let the characters go a liiiitle OOC sometimes in their lines, even if it's something I try to put as little as possibile. And Pinkie Pie doesn't break the fourth wall, she destroys it and rebuilds it just for the sake of demolishing it again.

Oh my, such a long comment! I rarely use the "Feature comment" option, but this surely deserves it! :hug:

I'm very, very glad to know you like this cover, and I'm even glad you analyzed all of its parts in order to prove your arguments: you're really a very careful and precise art critic! ^_^ I'd like to add something more here, though there's really nothing I could say other than agreeing with the paragraphs you wrote. You talked about this cover, about the characters who're in it, about its design and composition, and even about Pinkie who... may be here or may be not, hehe ^o^ The only thing I can write here in this reply of mine is indeed just "Thank you very much" for having spent your time to write something so deep.

And I'm indeed happy — and honored — that what's supposed to be a little and humble story that's being told through a comic could deserve so much praise from a clever and wise commenter like you! :huggle:

Once again I keep forgetting about the fact that the DA added in that whole feature option, don't know why if you ask me. ^O^

A careful reader and precise art critic, ha!  I rather doubt that Labb.  These comments generate from the artwork itself and I only just spur them up by what is to be seen on the paper.  Other then that your most welcome for the comment upon your awesome title here Labba, your work spoke for itself.  Its just nice enough that you did in fact read through all of that material and care to reply back to it, that by far if the kindest any deviant can do after I write these paragraphs and a half, lol.

There you go again with all the crediting stuff to this lowly crab, it makes no sense!  I"ll Have you know that it was your art that crafted out this comment and your need to create and deep and powerful looking story with art to boost it.  Be honoured with yourself on what your creating, but by any means a tip of the hat for your generous words Labba, your way too kind. *nods*

Later,

I'm so tense to see who the ponies are I don't recognize.

Hola de nuevo labba !! Me gustaria comenzar con la traducción del cómic, así que... Emm, me preguntaba si me dejarias traducir la portada del cómic (O parte de ella), si me lo permites... Necesito que me pases los datos necesarios como: Las fonts que se utilizaron y... no sé si esta parte también la podria traducir ---> i.imgur.com/pII93SM.png <--- Te la dejo a tu decisión...

drawings by art by. In addition to that little fix, I also would've recommended inserting Spike into the background (since that's where he currently is in the story) as an abstract image; it's a common practice in movie posters and cover art. :)

It's very nice the way it is, though. One delightful surprise that I just realized, though, is that your OC fairy ponies are all cuter than the mane six! How can this be!? How have you accomplished this!!?

I'm very sorry about these mistakes T_T But you know, I wrote that without thinking since that was the same thing I put in "Trixie's Best Spell", a comic scripted by SzafaLesiaka I uploaded some days ago: since no-one said it was uncorrect, I (falsely) assumed there was nothing wrong about it =P I see what you mean, and that might well happen: it's the cover after all, not an actual page, so it might be modified at any time.

And I'm glad you liked my OCs! ^_^ Actually, it took me at least three months just to come up with the design of the shaman, just to throw an example: her previous version had a different-colored mane and I used that protoype for a while in a website of mine in which I explained maths through MLP; then the character went through a lot of revisions and finally she became... what she is now =P Also, I hate exaggerated or weird-looking OCs: when creating them, I kept in mind they should be designed so that if they appeared as background ponies in an episode of the series, no-one should notice they weren't created by the actual staff.

Midnight eclipse (or "the shaman) looks...how do I put this...not how she looks in he comic, mostly based off her eye shape, in the comic the upper brows are lowered most of the time, but in this cover art they are fully open making her seem less like an antagonist...at least that's what I'm getting from the pic, overall it's great actually, keep it up!

Yes, I depicted her with the same appearance she had in the last panel of page 12: you can see the eyes indeed do look alike =D

Thanks! =)

I kind of know where the plot line is going... as well as what's under the Shaman's leaf on her back. I'm not sure, but for everyone else's sake... I'll keep that to myself so I don't get sued for "spoilers".
Great comic series BTW.

If you look at the leaf, you'll notice a certain line that, at least for me, indicates something. Left-Center part of the leaf.
