Traplaloo by Gavalanche Traplaloo by Gavalanche
Okay, I think I've got all the cross-dressing ponies our of my system for now. You all remember Terry, right? [link]

What did we learn from all of this?
-Cross-dressing ponies rarely venture outside of their own gender while cross-dressing
-Rainbow Dash wishes she was an earth pony who dressed in style, but always takes her alternative personas WAY too far resulting in her being beaten by surprised and angry stallions (or geldings in Big Mac's case).
-Wigs are the essence of pony disguise
-Dewigment is the primary form of discovering a cross-dressing pony
-Ponies are aware of a stallion's "sparkle" but have polite euphemisms for it.
-In great fits of rage ponies' front hooves will morph into hands to emphasize their anger [magic].
-Plucking is like... terrible.

I love this so much XD It is one of the most amusing things to me. Apparently i never commented on it...
Just thought you should know... that this is awesome. Because it's nice to hear it from others and stuff! Seeing this makes me love life just a little bit more.

Also i just realized that Twilight Sparkle's name has some interesting new connotations :S

Aw man, those days are no fun :-/
Every artist feels inadequate when it comes to their own work i think. I was looking through the older parts of your gallery earlier, and you've come a long way :3
Anyway, don't feel bad about your work, it's really awesome. I rarely laugh and smile so much looking at a single person's stuff. And i mean in the good way! You're definitely one of my favourite pony artists, and i totally look forward to the next time you post something... whether it's in a few days or a few weeks. Worth the wait!

Thanks again.

Yeah, I know this is nothing new for artist I'm just in such a frustrated state right now. The last couple of months it's been harder and harder getting in the mood to sit down and draw something. Now all at once I really want to draw and make comics but I can't because of all the stuff going on in my life right now is keeping me too busy. I especially want to just do more practice pieces now to improve my skills and I have several comics I have the full scripts written out for but I can't even so much as get a basic sketches going. What little time I do have to idle away on my computer I watch livestreams of artist I admire to try to pick up on their techniques and all I see is that fundamentally they do the same things I do with the same software and hardware I have, they're just better than me. It doesn't help that a lot of these artist crank out amazing pictures every day and I know that when I can get back to drawing it'll take me weeks to produce anything worthwhile, which just makes me question my own skill that much more.

Like I said, I'm just putting myself into a very frustrated state right now. Things will be so much better when I can actually sit down to do some leisure drawing again. I'm sure about a month from now everything will be much better.

Thanks for the watch, the compliments and the support!

You know what? I take it back.

Scootabuse is common, and fandoms have different tastes. So I shouldn't be surprised. It's happened in The Rainbow Factory.

:icongavalanche:
Gavalanche Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well thanks for the tolerance I guess.

Yes, Scootabuse in its many forms has been around for a while and is not original to me. Actually I don't spend much time on it (weak excuse, I know).

I know that thanks to the "Shit Rocket Mare" I've somehow become the face of Sweetiepoo, but the fact is I've only done 5 Sweetiepoo or Sweetiepoo related pics out of all the art I've ever posted to the internet. A lot of the Sweetiepoo art you see on places like Ponibooru are edited versions of one or two of my pieces and I had nothing to do with their creation or disemination. I did not invent Sweetiepoo (numerous request from Faceless on 4chan did that), and despite popular belief, I have nothing to do with the Ask Sweetiepoo Tumblr blog.

I know people love focusing on the abuse aspect of comics like this for some reason, but the abuse is not the joke here. The joke is that Scootaloo wore a wig that looks exactly like her own mane to look like another foal that looks exactly like her, and as if that's not absurd enough Rainbow Dash fell for it and was totally unaware that it was Scootaloo until she accidentally removed her wig revealing a foal that looks exactly like the foal she thought it was. This is the same Rainbow Dash who I established in my art canon as enjoying to dress up like different mares and has unfortunate accidental wig removals reveal her true identity to unsuspecting partners. The fact that I immediately follow this up with the fandom's trope of "Rainbow Dash cares not for Scootaloo" should make the readers cry "Hypocrisy!" especially since clearly Rainbow Dash enjoyed her time with the disguised Scootaloo. THESE are the only intended jokes! Not "Durr Hurr Hurr, Dash is gonna hit Scootaloo again!" Which is never even shown in the comic.

The fact that so many people can look at this comic and just say "Oh, Gav is such an abusefag." and dismiss it without processing the actual comedy elements here is disturbing. It's a mentality like that that keep people like Newt Gingrich in office for so many years.

"Inner-thigh sparkle"? So Terry is male? Okay. Aside from that how else do they differ anyway? I honestly can't see much of a difference.

Either way, cool work.

You know, I always assumed Terry was a boys' name... could it also be a girls'? Whatever, he's a colt now.

Yes, There is another critical difference. Terry has never been without his prized balloon awarded to him and Rainbow Dash by the Princess Pinklestia for putting those ziggers in their place.

Let me get this straight, Rainbow Dash isn't a cross-dressing guy, but rather, race-dressing from pegasus to earth pony. It's Scootaloo who is cross-dressing to hide the fact that she's really female. Also, inner-thigh sparkle is slang for an erection, right?

SPARKLE!

Scootaloo saw an opportunity to get close to Dash by disguising herself as Terry. This isn't like how she gets her thrills on a Friday night, you know.

Dash on the other hand secretly wishes she was an earth pony who always dressed in style so she's made several alternate personalities for herself. Unfortunately she always takes them too far until she's in a situation where accidental revelation is inevitable resulting in a very surprised stallion. I'll leave what happens after that to people's violent/sexually-frustrated imaginations.

Yes, a long while ago I did this comic [link] in which I showed a younger Big Macintosh with totally non-sexual, non-explicit, non-suggestive anatomy. Why even put it there? It's hard to really put it into words, but basically because in this comic he is alive, he is young, he is (was) full of health. Male mammals have balls, that's just the way it is and I think it highlighted the tragedy of his injury.

People immediately became outraged by this and in a very insulting fashion made versions of the comic that were edited and posted them across the internet. The edited version was more wide spread and had more views than my original version. So in a super mature move I made this comic [link] expressing my feelings towards these people who were so turned off by the way I drew Big Mac, yet many of them would openly joke about Applejack X Big Mac incest. Notice how I included some sheen and sparkle to draw attention to the offending anatomy so people are fully aware of what is going on and the tragedy that takes place (in my head canon Big Mac is a gelding now). As usual (much like this very comic that these comments are being posted on) people focused on the wrong aspects of the comic. There were the usual anti-abuse whiners, and all the people who hated the balls in the first place and people who were confused and also upset by the shine. Well I wasn't going to be upset by this or let it change how I did my art, so in another super-mature act of defiance I've continued to draw male ponies as males if the viewing angle allows it and as a bizarre artist mark I'm not especially proud of I swore I would include ridiculous sparkles and lens flares to both draw attention the sack and to make it harder for prudes to edit the picture.

I bet nobody ever thought my artwork was actually this thought out!

Wow, so it seems you got an earlier taste of the haters. I personally like it more when you can tell the genders apart easier than just by the headshapes of ponies o.o I always liked your comics, even though I havent been a watcher for that long, a lil over half a year maybe. And it's sad to see people react that way over something so silly, what's even more ridiculous, is that now, those very people now crave pony cocks and pony porn. :/

I dont find your actions silly at all, that is the way you draw male ponies, and if people like it or not, that's their problem, you dont change to satisfy a few lil wusses.

The silly ones are those who took you art and edited it!

Nope, most probably think you are one big, abusive perv xD

Thanks. I can't really speak for other fandoms, because this is the first one I've ever been a part of, but is seems like this fandom has a bad habit of attacking new people who try to come into it. If you look at my earliest art in my gallery you'll see comments from people basically calling me shit before I even had a chance to establish myself (granted the jokes were pretty dark, but if you don't like them just ignore them). I was watching The Weaver/Glitter Glue when he first started doing pony stuff, and he was attacked very harshly. He never really changed and now he's one of the most loved pony artist. Go figure!

I've never really wanted to be a "Brony Personality", I just do this for the fun of it and because I wanted to see certain jokes and ideas being expressed, so I'm okay with never letting my art go beyond my own DA page. I feel if as many people are as upset by my art as they say they are then it's too easy to avoid it.

Although I can't help but be miffed by the fact that there are people I know who have blocked my artist tag on Ponibooru but if they see a picture of something like Sorin having anal sex with Futa-Applebloom write a caplocked comment of "FINALLY!" and go on to reveal more of their fetishes to the world than probably anyone else wants to know about. People like that are the reason why people like Rick Santorum get elected to office.

Same here, I am new to fandoms too and mlp being my first one. I have also been acted very brutally in the fandom, however, not because of what I draw, but what I say. On almost every Derpy pictures I've seen, I've said I like the picture, but not Derpy, and instantly get attacked like a witch during the witchhunt.
Your jokes are dark indeed, thankfully that is my taste in jokes ;)
Well you seem to be climbing the popularity ladder pretty fast too from what I've seen ;)

That is the biggest reason why I am more creeped out by bronies and wishes never to join them, because they jerk(or clop as they call it) off to ponies :/ Not anthromorphed, but normal, quad, ponies... That is just creepy as fuck :/ And just not right.
