Sofa King by RedApropos Sofa King by RedApropos
She totally fell for it.
If you're a 90s kid and went to school, you definitely know this one.

It's literally the dumbest, least clever, stupid joke ever created by kids who think they're funny.
And she totally fell for it. :D

The wonderful, glorious Mickeymonster gave me a hand by drawing the artwork on the three cards! :D

Guys, this is great! Those expressions are hilarious! The misdirection inherent to the joke is surprisingly unexpected. I like what you did with their eyes. How you have them darker at the top and lighter shades at the bottom without any black pupils is nice. It was cool having Pinkie walking on Discord's body for that one panel. It gives the illusion that there is a lot of movement going on and that fits them perfectly. The series of pictures is appropriately silly(OMG that last card!). How you see Discord's claws holding the two farthest panels (because they're the cards) is a nice touch.

While I found it a bit jarring for the last panel to suddenly have an outside background, I also see that it helps deliver the punch line through contrast and a peaceful setting compared to Twilight's frustrated expression. Also, the background of clouds and sunny day with a very well drawn tree really feels relaxing. It's that contrast to Twi's expression that helps so much, of course her actual look is great on it's own.

I felt the very first panel was a little crowded by the speech bubbles, but it wasn't much of problem for me. There's nothing I can say about the colors or shading. It's your own styles and they look perfect as they are. Any changes would be only that, changes, not improvements. I don't think I could love this any more then I do now!

This strip is a very imbalanced. Out of all the page space you have, you only use the half of it and you cram all the set up and dialogue in there.

Also, the first two panels transition weird be because you seem to be breaking the 180 rule. You've closed up on two characters talking and then you swivel around 180 degrees to the opposite side to their conversation partner, which gives the reader an awkward feeling of disorientation. The transition is VERY jarring.

Something you could do to fix this is by using an establishing shot, a shot that shows where all characters and things are in relation to one another (this also helps to establish your setting when doing a larger story. It's very useful. use it.) so when you do things like break the 180 rule, your readers aren't nearly as jarred.

You get it?
