Comic: The Ruse... (Part 1/4) by Photonicsoup Comic: The Ruse... (Part 1/4) by Photonicsoup
Part 1: You're looking at it
Part 2: [link]
Part 3: [link]
Part 4: [link]

Finally... my Internet has come back (that's why I haven't been on for almost a month) It completely died, and its only just been fixed (Over the last month its been "fixed" many times, but only now has is actually been fixed)

As a result of having no internet for a month, I spent a lot more time on this comic than usual, (it does not show) most of it spent on backgrounds, I'm gonna start drawing my own backgrounds in future ( I hope it doesn't take as long though, they took 10+ hours each..)

So anyway, this comic.. It's odd, I have no idea where the plot came from, but oh well..

4 parts, each rather short (It actually fits into 2 parts, but then each one is awfully huge)

I didn't draw the backgrounds in this part, (I edited some though) credit for them should go here


Also, because I am feeling ridiculous, I'm gonna request Critiques, Go ahead, tear it to pieces!

Serves: 6
200g (8 oz) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
75g (3 oz) butter
75g (3 oz) sugar
50g (2 oz) desiccated coconut
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
1 egg
125ml milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation method
Prep: 20 mins | Cook: 40 mins | Extra time: 40 mins

1. Sift flour, salt and baking powder together into a bowl. Rub in the butter until mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Add sugar, coconut and lime zest.

2. In a separate bowl, beat egg and add 100ml of the milk and vanilla.

3. Make a well in centre of flour mixture. Add liquid and mix well to form a stiff consistency, adding the additional milk if necessary.

4. Place in a greased 15cm (6 inch) cake tin and bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Icing ideas...

Try this Coconut cream cheese icing or try a simple buttercream, then sprinkle with more coconut. For an especially pretty presentation, toast the coconut in a dry frying pan for a few minutes over medium heat.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
39 out of 44 deviants thought this was fair.

Vision: The art with the shadows makes it look all dark while still being able to see the ponies, which is good :)

Originality: I don't see much art and comics set like this, so the general idea is funny, but I've seen Derpy comics where the muffin falls over so that's not really original, unless you came up with that idea.

Technique: The lines manage to look different yet special at the same time, if that makes any sense. That's good :)

Impact: It was funny! Pinkie sounded just like she usually does, but some grammar errors and word choice didn't sound quite right.

Dear princess Celestia
Had to borrow your guard
Left you a muffin instead.

Derpy, what are you up to?

HA! Nice!

Ok... I'm not really keeping track of which artist does what, but I believe what I'm gonna refer to was made by someone else. After seeing that the guard was a cutout, I was expecting Derpy and a muffin to be somehow involved.
