Guest artist: Jovey4

Recognize this? This is the Fluttershy v. Manticore moment from page 57, but this time from the point of view of the players around the DM table!

WAY back when I first called out for guest comics, Jovey approached me with an offer to do some fanart - whatever I particularly wanted to see, he said. I replied: I've always wanted to see an artist's interpretation of the players. He's done some pretty impressive work, I'd say! (You can also see the full-res version on his deviantART page - this one's been significantly sized down.)

And with this, the sabbatical comes to a close! Thanks to all the readers for being so patient and supportive, and a special thanks to all of the guest artists and authors that kept this comic flowing with funny content! The My Little Pony fandom truly, truly rocks.

But for those of you that have been waiting anxiously for the main run of comics to return: Dragonshy is coming up next, only on the Hub- I mean, Friendship is Dragons. See you there!

Not a bad artist but I usually prefer not to see what the players look like. It kind of takes away from the fantasy. Anyway I think I figured out every character except for Rarity and Twilight, any body know who they are?

Or I could have hit the link on the comments page and found out.

Compare the dialog to page 57. Twilight is the brunette in the purple shirt, Applejack is the ginger in the cowboy hat, Pinkie Pie is the curly-haired blonde in the pink shirt, and Fluttershy is the pale-skinned long-haired blonde. That leaves Dash and Rarity, who didn't speak... and Dash is pretty clearly the hoodie-clad dark-haired one with a near-perpetual scowl just going from her attitude. So Rarity must be the black girl with glasses.

Rarity is the black one because of the irony of having a white unicorn be black. Also, Twilight has a similar haircut to her player.

It's not that ironic Sjosten. I've figured for a long time if they were humans that Rarity would be black. Has to do with the fact that for the most part, humanized ponies wear the color clothing of their fur (Note the fact that all of the character's shirts match their pony's colors, with the exception of Pinkie)

And since Rarity is a fashionista, and it is very much in style for black women to wear white fabric with colored rhinestones, it would only logically follow that Rarity must be black for her fashion sense to align that way.

Yes I think about this way too hard.

On the matter of Twilight having a similar hairstyle, so do all the others. Rainbow Dash has layers. Applejack has a braided ponytail. Rarity has the tight curls (though only of her bangs), Fluttershy's hair is extremely long and straight. And of course Pinkie Pie's is curly.

No, her shirt matches, if you dull the colors a little. Course that's the same with everybody's colors, just dulled to a more lifelike color than the crayola fun pack you see in fim. Good observation though, I'm surprised that I missed the colors and the hair style, especially since I recognized Fluttershy right off the bat because of her looks and clothing.
