Is this picture going too far? Dec. 20th, 2012 @ 08:30 PM

You see i drew this comic right

http://tunipeace.deviantart.com/#/d5offeg

and everyone seemed ok with it.... i even heard from some of my friends that they thought it was funny.

but then i went further and drew this
http://tunipeace.deviantart.com/#/d5ojii8

and it all went downhill from there.

i know that it is not the bright fluffy humor that everyone is used to in MLP, but it was jsut a crazy idea, and if you look in my gallery i dont do this often. Im an adult so im going to think sexually from time to time and express it.

but now it seems that i lost two people that i respect over this with out them telling me a word of why.

i thought that they were my friends, but if they cannot accept my varying personality i suppose that they were not my friends in the first place.

Im not only valued their artwork and their humor and personalities, but i also really wanted just to e their friend and connect with them on a human level with emotion and trust and basic friendship.

so my heart is broken, but what an i do... it is just a lost opportunity on their part on losing a faithful friendly person that is not afraid of her sexuality.

For future reference, keep all your art in one thread.

As for your "friends" fuck em if they can't take a joke lol.

I'll never understand why some fans of anything get so bent out of shape over a parody or any type of criticism. Shit's not even real but hey, it's the internet. Just keep it moving, quitting wont change anything.

Rape is a touchy subject, even more so joking about. especially to those who have or have known someone who has gone through it.
put 2 and 2 together.

If you have a dark side, sometimes it's just better to keep it to yourself. If people think they know you then you come out with something totally unexpected, it has shock value and might scare them away. It affects them too ya'know, not ONLY you.

I missed that part, I thought he just got paddled. Still, the same could be said about any subject of violence. Not justifying it or defending it but still.

ask your friends if they've ever made a holocaust joke, or a twin towers joke, or a batman shooting joke.

tell them to stop acting so holier than thou, cuz all of us have poked fun at some messed up shit at least once in our lives. And this isn't even real anyway, nor does it allude to a real-life event. You either don't make jokes about tragic things at all, or you do. If you're picking and choosing, it's pretty hypocritical.

The only time I'd say a joke is entirely out of line is if your intention is to offend/hurt people. Just the same with anything else, really.

I would never joke about rape. i have had people in my family raped. but i can see how this can be interpreted as rape. but it wasent
discord just paddled him and some of the fan girls jsut dressed him up and "played" with him. like the candle and stuff and dressed him up.

just make more fucked up jokes, establish yourself to your friends as that guy that says outrageous shit, works for me, now no one ever objects to what I say, just last week I was yelling about how I was going to commit a jihad and claim the infidels lives in the name of Allah, then get one of those "free Palestine" things because hey; they're free.

in this picture Sombra HAS NOT been raped...

i would never ever joke about rape i have had people in my family raped...

thats number one...

number two...

In the picture the fan girls just dressed him up. kissed him all over,one took a piece of his horn, some poured hot wax down his back (the worse part), and the stuff on his legs is fan drool.

ok

Now Discord in my mind is not really into the stallions or guys. he just likes choas. so discord paddled the living- ...he paddled him hard. I even SAID SO IN THE PIC.

i can see now what was wrong with the picture... it looks like he might of gotten assaulted... he did... not not sexually. for gods sake its a kids show. believe in me first and ask me.. dont be afraid to ask me stuff.

have some faith in me...

i repeat sombra WAS NOT RAPED... just his fans played extreme dress up with him. basically like a big ken doll.

but people interpret things as they see them without asking the actual creator. even if they get an answer from the artist they still will interpret it in there own way.

So i told you what it was and i hope that you can believe me and thats all i can do.

Is this picture going too far?

No problem. I am glad you take my opinion about you well, you get points for that. I dont think the picture was going too far in the slightest, i just think its drawn poorly and it its about an annoying subject matter. I think its sad though that something so simple can cause drama for you and your friends.

Wait did I seriously just see a 10 post discussion about a miserably drawn dull pony comic that implies (doesn't even show) some sort of sexual abuse, on NEWGROUNDS?

Seriously?

First response to this thread should have been "No its not going to far" and it should have died there. I mean for fucks sake this is Newgrounds, for years we had a whole section that was dedicated to tasteless crass "bastard" flash movies. One of our most cherished artists got popular making dead baby flash movies. We applaud the talents and humor of people like Stamper and Jeremy Lokken and Marc M. Our forums and portals are generously peppered with threads, movies, and art pieces that crack jokes at horrible tragedies and we vigorously defend them if people start crying "too soon".

For fucks sake people, grow a pair. This picture is practically G rated compared to 30% of the daily content submitted to this site.

And if you dont find this at least somewhat funny, then you need to take your holier than thou stick out your ass, or you are new to the internet.

Yeah, but saying "the guy with a constant, scathing sense of superiority presented in a presumptuous, arrogant and seemingly impatient manner" is much easier abbreviated by just saying pretentious.

I second Orn's opinion that it isn't going far enough.
The art, honestly, is shit. It's a five minute sketch with no sense of lighting, horrible color choices, and no depth.
Anything worth doing is worth doing well, or at least well enough that someone looking at it will understand what's going on.

Also, rape is evil, but non-consensual sexual torture is just fine? Forgive us if we're confused.

That's what I was saying. Double standards here (or DA) of all places? I mean of course rape and any other violence is bad in real life (at least to most people) but that's not the context in question. It's a parody.

It's not an abbreviation if the word you're using has a different meaning to what you actually mean to say.

i posted the second pic in my account and ill try to post the comic

if it does not come up then i'll direct you to my tumblr where this mess started. it was no one on deviant it was a tumblr friend i had that just up and stopped talking to me... the thing that pisses me off is that they just.... stopped.... not giving me any way to explain to them...just cut off... i hate that.... at least tell someone why you dont want to talk to them... but im about 70 percent over it now... but still disappointed in the damned process.

i never thought that i would get so much controversy over a pic.

and no it was not meant to be the best pi in the world, because it was supposed to e a parody in a wild style. and besides, Deviantart.com is a great place to make friends..... sometimes.... SO SIGN UP and you guys can curse me out there also :)

The bulk of us have/had deviantart accounts, and have forsaken the place for a variety of reasons, one of them being the copious amounts of artwork similar to the stuff in this thread.

Everything is offensive to someone but being offended never harmed anyone. Let people get upset about your picture. It's their pathetic waste of a life to do with what they wish.
