Shaving is hard when your face is furry by BestSeller-Microtech Shaving is hard when your face is furry by BestSeller-Microtech
Mr. Cake is a gentlecolt, a somewhat weak stallion that faints a lot, a loving father and husband, a good baker and the best swordmaster Equestria has ever seen, heir of the Dancing Death Style.

Or, well, that's my headcanon. Not sure if it's yours.

Anyway, I'm starting to think that the most similar thing I have to a 'style' in writing comics is WALL OF TEXT. I swear that when I write the script it doesn't look so text-y. But give it to the cartoonist and KAZONGA now this is War and Peace, except it's not.

Now, a couple things to say. As you may guess, this is inspired by (as in, this is fanart of) Egophiliac's incredibly cool Slice of Life, [link] a comic that's so good you should be ashamed of yourself if you didn't read it. Also, Egophiliac is the woman behind Moonstuck [link] so you know what to do!

(Also Egophiliac is her: [link] )

And the second thing to say: as you can see, the style in this comic is simpler. Micro decided to use a newspaper-y style I think? It reminds me of FoxTrot, for example. A very stylized FoxTrot, but the inspiration is there.

So, hope you like it.

I always thought ponies had some sort of low level tactile telekinesis that allows them to hold things.

I have to wonder if that's how they shaved in ye olden times.

I think you should have had a bit more than just a black panel with one onomatopoeia.  Take time and make some flashy effects and some crazy angles to make it a little more epic.

I tried to do that. The cartoonist (this account is shared between the writer and the cartoonist, I'm the writer) answered my script with an email that said "fuck you". So black panel and onomatopeia for ya.

Also the fun part is that you can't see what's happening.

Well If I could, I would remake this comic and add some stuff.

Another thing, at first I thought Mr Cake was gonna shave off his whole coat of his face which would have been funny.  XD
Still good job.

Another style consists of the precise usage HSbF6 in combination with Li3N. Unfortunately, there has not been a single master of this technique since 1st April.
