Cucumber Retrieval by CrunchNugget Cucumber Retrieval by CrunchNugget
Somebody had to do it.

I wanted to really jam Spike's arm all the way in there right up to the hilt, but couldn't push him any closer without either making his neck look broken or blocking Dash's face too much. Even this is blocking her face more than I'd like.

[edit] Spike's arm has been bugging the crap out of me, so I lowered Dash's head so Spike's arm wouldn't be broken anymore. It's still made of rubber, considering how long it has to stretch to reach her stomach, but that's okay. Although now I can't decide if I should remove the lump in her throat, or if her neck is too short.

If Spike can eat out of trash, then I could eat out of Rainbow Dash's mouth no problem. All that extra saliva for digestion is very efficient.

Kinda seems like she should be, huh? Didn't hear her throwing up off screen in the episode, though, so I guess not. She just seemed slightly surprised, then 30 seconds later acted like nothing had happened.

Spike is unconcerned about such trivial details.

What makes it even stranger/funnier is that no one said a single word about it, not even Rainbow Dash herself, like it was totally normal. It's like Spike nonchalantly invading their guts happens so often that they're all completely used to it and don't even mind.

ZuTheSkunk Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2012
Not to mention the fact that from the looks of it, he managed to bent his arm in completely absurd ways while doing it. Lengthening it to impossible lengths no longer surprises me, as it seems to be completely normal there, even for Spike.

What do you think, does this look better? [link]

More of Dash's face is blocked, and Spike's arm is still stretched, of course, but at least it isn't bent weird anymore. I wonder if her neck is too short.

(I hope you don't mind me asking, but you're the only one who pointed out the detail that was bothering me, so you seem like a good one to ask.)

ZuTheSkunk Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2012
Well, that definitely looks more believable. :) However, in the original it was perfectly clear that Spike's left hand is holding RD's nose, while here it's rather unclear, and his arm looks as if he had long chin or something.

BTW, as far as I can tell, there should be no such line on the wing on the back, only on the one on the front.

:iconcrunchnugget:
CrunchNugget Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2012
Oh, right, the wing thing was just copy-pasting without thinking about the different perspective on the back wing. Easy to fix.

Other problem is a bit trickier, but maybe it's good enough to just pull them apart slightly more, like this [link] Although that kinda looks like weird mouth pincers instead of his hand, hmm...

:iconzutheskunk:
ZuTheSkunk Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2012
It seems a bit better now, but I think his fingers should be thinner; you could also try adding a visible tip of one of his other fingers, since he's probably holding her nose like this: [link]

Probably not hard to tell that most of this was constructed from a combination of various screenshot traces that I then altered to suit my purposes. So it's kinda funny that the hand is creating trouble, because that's one of the few details I didn't adjust in the slightest after the initial trace. But then maybe that's part of the problem. Almost every part of Spike's body was tweaked in one way or another to fit my needs, so leaving one detail alone makes it stand out. Or else its just due to its position behind his head now.

Anyway, I tried having another finger visible behind him earlier, but it just looks weird, some random pointy thing poking out of his face, so I deliberately kept it out of sight.

Ah well, at this point maybe I should just leave it, since I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the altered version anyway. Are the changes I'm making too much modification to replace this original entirely? It's a larger change than the little edits I typically make. Does it bother people to make significant modifications after they've already favorited a picture?

Yeah, that's been bugging me since I started this picture. It's half of why I wished I could get his arm in completely, but I just couldn't get their heads to look right if I put them any closer together. So that's why I made that comment about FiM limbs being made of rubber.

Hmm, maybe I should have lowered her head even more, so there's no bend in her neck at all. I've actually been considering making a 2nd version that looks a little less impossible for Spike's arm, so maybe I should.

It happened (mostly off screen) in the most recent episode, Ponyville Confidential. They were a bit more subtle about it than I was.
