Guess Again by RedApropos Guess Again by RedApropos
Some time ago, someone suggested I draw a comic with Pinkie Pie and Rarity.
Here it is!



Because there's a frightening number of people who don't get the joke:

Rair' - "What do you think this place is?"
Pinks - "Carousel Boutique."
Rair' - "Yeah, well, you're treating it like the spa."

Except Pinkie said she thought it was the spa.
She knew what Rarity was going to say, and said it first.
She was being a smartass.

Welcome to the world of humour that doesn't involve pony memes!

This piece here is another comic I find myself, enjoying mindlessly with no real objection to, however I didn't understand the message or joke of this comic, I assumed it was that Rarity went to the spa after hearing the word spa, but I can't be too sure, it confused me quite a bit, although the originality is impressive because I haven't seen too many Rarity and Pinkie comics to my knowledge this is the first I have seen . the technique is as always what I expect from the artist, good style that is something good to look at as well as being something of his own quality, I may not get the joke of this or message and it may not have had a heavy impact, but it doesn't mean I didn't like it I actually enjoyed reading this comic, it was well designed.
What do you think?

Funny. The punchline hit me at just about the same moment Rarity got to her "I see what you did there and we are not amused" srs bsns face. Pinky obviously cheated and read the next panel for the right answer before responding to the question in the previous one.

Vision: An actually original Pinky Pie Hijinks comic. It's been done before, but it's hard at this point to really pull off the "original" part.

Originality: Which you totally nailed. You have Pinkie interacting with Rarity, which by your own observation, happens about as often as Rainbow Dash out-nerding Twilight Sparkle. Add to that a gag I've actually never before seen (I'm sure it's been done before in some other medium, but if it has, I've never seen it), and you have a recipe for something fresh.

Technique: Hand-drawn, complete with wavy-thick-outline-hand-drawn feel. Not a bad thing at all. Borrowing existing background vectors where needed? Fair game. There's just one thing that's niggling me. Pinkie's position in those first two panels just doesn't visually read well; she looks like a pile of pink blobbiness like Lumpy Space Princess or something. I can't really make out what's supposed to be going on there.

Impact: Not much left to say. It's a comic, so the impact is in how well the dialogue comes together with the visuals. While I got the joke as intended without reading the description, and I think using Rarity as part of the delivery for Pinkie's antics was a solid choice, it's clear the joke was still lost on some, so perhaps it was a bit too subtly executed. While I'm usually pretty good at figuring out and offering some helpful tips to remedy shortcomings, I'm really left scratching my head for want of ways the delivery could be improved so it isn't so hit-or-miss that you end up having to explain it in the description.
