My Little Pony Tinuvielle MLP FiM Fanart
This Sunday Sketch is of Tinuvielle as a My Little Pony. She is a Unicorn because she is a magic-user. Her Cutie Mark is the Celtic symbol for female power, or to put it in more modern terms: Girl Power!

Sunday Sketch #11 – My Little Pony Amuletts

Amuletts as a My Litte Pony MLP FiM Fanart

This weeks Sunday Sketch is Amuletts as a My Little Pony, ‘Friendship is Magic’ style. She’s supposed to be looking a bit devious (don’t know if I pulled that off).

She’s a Unicorn for the simple reason she can cast spells, so characters who are spell casters will have horns and those that aren’t won’t. Her Cutie Mark is a Flame because her special talent is playing with fire, lol. (And she’s a Cleric of Loki).

Pg 53: A Closed Book

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle thinks she may be able to open the sealed spell-book with magic, but it remains stubbornly shut.

Creator’s Commentary: Grr. I think the hardest part of doing this comic is thinking up titles for the pages! I know they don’t exactly need titles, but I think it’s useful for people who are flicking through the archives to know more-or-less where they are.

YAY! The first bit of real magic. I hope you like the special effects. I think they are cool!

Tinuvielle is supposed to be a very beautiful Elf, so I’ve been working on her face to make her more attractive. In D&D terms I think her Comeliness is 19 or something like that.

Movie Review: Dungeons & Dragons 2 – Wrath of the Dragon God

After the atrocity of Dungeons & Dragons the Movie it’s doubtful whether any sequel ever had lower expectations than this. Fortunately things could only get better. Wrath of the Dragon God could not be more different from its predecessor, and it’s gratifying to see criticism being used constructively.

Mages casting spells

Set in Ismer a century on the city is unrecognisable, but Damodar, the blue-lipped henchman (minus the blue lips) and only recurring character (played by Bruce Payne), plans to destroy it. It seems Jeremy Irons cursed him with undeath (justification for blue lips if ever I heard one) so Damodar, seeking revenge, locks him in a room with the first movie playing on a continual loop recovers the magical Orb of Thingamabob to awaken the sleeping Dragon God.

Pg 40: Certainly Uncertain

This week in Epic Fail: Amuletts and Bleef discuss the many uses of the Swiss Army knife – I mean Andy! – then more on to Climate Change – GAH! I mean MIPI!

Creator’s Commentary: I can neither confirm or deny whether Magically Induced Planar Instability exists, it’s just a theory that exists in that universe, as Climate Change in ours. You can make up your own minds as to the truth of both, or neither.

I know a few people have been anticipating the explaination of Amuletts’ sudden… assets. I wonder how many people are scratching their heads in confusion and how many are going ‘Ohhhh! Of course!’ I can’t tell you quite how unexpected the last panel was. Originally that wasn’t supposed to happen.

Oh, and I just got awarded The Soulless Machine’s Flash Fiction Award for Epic Fail. YAY!

And I’ll be heading to the Caption Comics Convention in Oxford (UK) this weekend, so I’ll see you there if you’re coming.

And there’re are vote incentives up every day now. I created sim versions of all the characters in The Sims 3 so they’re mainly amusing snapshots of their adventures in sim-land.
