It's So Scruffy!! by FaithFirefly It's So Scruffy!! by FaithFirefly
I'm a day late on the Father's Day thing. :hmm: Buuuuut I'm proud to say this is the FIRST time I have managed to ink and color a picture entirely in Flash!! :iconfluttershyyayplz:Yay.

I've actually written out a one-page, but long, comic about Big Mac and his relationship with his dad, Bramley Apple, through the trials of life that got thrown at the Apple family through the years, and what Big Macintosh took from his father's example as the stallion of the house. So you guys get a sneak peek of the first panel. I'm still adjusting to drawing ponies, but here's hoping I'll be awesome at it in no time!! :D

EDIT: By the way, I know for a fact that this fandom has a wide reservoir of people who are awesome comic makers. Anyone out there who has some advice for me? I've never really drawn a legit full-color comic before.

OMG He is so tiny and cute! How much does he weigh ?

Hmmmm, hard to say. Maybe 10 pounds? More than your average newborn kitten but not nearly as much as a newborn foal.

Oops!!!! Sorry about that last comment, I was just talking about newborn Quarrel on my other picture with someone so I didn't realize you've been talking about Mac all this time. :iconderpyhoovesliarplz: My bad!!!!

And actually, I made a mistake in my research. A baby PONY can actually weight 10-14 pounds at birth. So 10 is about right for a runt, which I like to think Big Mac was as a baby. :lol: He just had one heck of a growth spurt later on.

:lol: Well, he has a lot of feline behaviors. But the average weight of a newborn kitten is 8-10 pounds. A newborn foal is actually more like 120-150 pounds. And seeing as how Quarrel is only a little smaller than Discord when he's fully grown, saying he's 15 or so pounds at birth is still SUPER SMALL. :hmm: Discord possibly shrunk him as well in order to sneak him in past Celestia. :lol:

There's those scruffy sideburns~! Macintosh looks like he's having a ball :D And Bramley's expression just fills me with warmth, it's the expression of a proud papa.

 

This was in flash? Could've fooled me...really I don't have a clue xD

Yeah, you can do a lot in Flash that you can do in Illustrator and other Adobe stuff like that. :lol: It's a bit tricky, though.

This is almost TOO adorable. A baby version of Big Macintosh and his father bonding with Big Mac enjoying his fathers mane. It is so cute and well done especially with it all in flash.

His personality makes him seem like he should be smaller. XD And we saw in Season 1 that he was a bit scrawny as a colt.
