Hoo boy...this is turning out to be a real doozy.  I've spent so much time on this by now that I'm really looking forward to polishing this off and moving on at this point.  Still, I've grown so attached to Smarty Pants that I feel she deserves a happy ending and am willing to put forth whatever it will take to give her a happy ending.  The good news, not too far left to go!

In this update...Smarty finally meets up with the family and her Study Buddy companions!  She seems a bit shy though...hopefully Twilight can coax her out from behind her tail :D

Immortal Puncher of Berries
United States
My name is BerryPAWNCH, and I am a digital artist specializing in parodies and occasional diabeetus. I have committed myself to drawing works of art that satirize, cross over, or otherwise rip existing or original characters a new one.

Most of all, I take an extremely high amount of pride in maintaining an extremely low amount of artistic and intellectual quality. In fact, you will be very happy to know that I have absolutely NO plans to produce any works bearing any social or intellectual merit at any point in the future. THIS IS MY PLEDGE TO YOU!

Thank you for checking out the roadblock to social progress, intelligence, and reform that is my DeviantArt gallery!

Sincerely,

-That Guy

Grumpy Old Supervillains by BerryPAWNCH
Grumpy Old Supervillains
Huzzah!  Despite recent computer problems, I fought valiantly and lost many brave pixels along the way, but managed to complete something for the newest ep on time...-ish.  This one is based off the movie "Grumpy Old Men," a delightful comedy I was lucky to catch in theaters waaaaaaaayyyyy back in the day.

What a way to have a close out to a neat season.  It was nice to see an episode (a season finale two parter, no less) dedicated to the "We Got Our Asses Kicked by Twilight and Friends" club. :headbang:  It was entertaining to see their wildly different personalities interact with and play off each other, and ultimately save the day.  I greatly enjoyed the misadventures of the Great and Powerful Ego, the Troll of Chaos, Unsurelight Glimmer, and that adorkable changeling Thorax.

I dedicate this crossover to the always amusing bickering and bantering group dynamic of these very unlikely heroes (minus Chryssie).  Keep rocking on yall.

...Except Trixie and Chrysalis.  I'm still not sure I could stand being in the same room as either of them for more than ten seconds. :P

Family Reunion: The Smarty Pants Finale
:D:D:DBe sure to check out :iconrated-r-ponystar:'s fiction based on this very comic!:D:D:D

Part 1:
Growing Pains by BerryPAWNCH

Part 2:
Growing Pains II: Family Ties by BerryPAWNCH

And here we are at the end of Twilight and Smarty Pants' journey...and at 25 panels in total, what a way to end it!  Smarty has been revived and now gets a new start on a new life with her childhood friend and mother figure...and now she has a whole new family and a couple of new friends to share some good times with!  It's a bit surreal to see something I've been working on for so long finally come to a conclusion, and even better to see this whole series end on a note that started out with tears of sadness and ended with tears of joy.  What a trip this has been, and thanks to everyone who enjoyed this little mini-series!

I've made a point of having each of these end on a profound and thought provoking description to top them off.  There was a lot of life experience and meaning I tried to include in the last two, to the point that I really can't think of much to add to the discussion of valuing friends and family that I haven't already talked about.  But there is one thing I'd like to end it on, and that's how it felt create and ultimately finish this whole thing.

I've often read a lot of comics and ongoing projects here on DeviantArt, as well as numerous comics throughout the Internet.  One thing I've always wondered was how people even work up the patience and motivation to work through demanding and time-intensive projects like webcomics.  For most of this comic I wasn't sure what motivated me to push through it at times...and I'll admit there were times I wanted to throw my hands up and quit altogether.  This was, after all, a conclusion that was never meant to be drawn.  I meant for the whole series to conclude after the first comic, with everyone hopefully gaining a new appreciation for their childhood and the friends they played with...and judging from the reactions I got, its purpose was definitely achieved in that respect, and so the series could have ended right there.

But then something happened.  I got a ton of comments begging for a happy ending and expressing sorrow for little old Smarty Pants.  The more I read them, the more emotionally attached I got to Smarty Pants.  Suddenly I wanted her to have a happy ending, and couldn't just leave it at the tragic fate that befell her at the end of the first comic.  I wondered how I could possibly end it on a happy note and mentally juggled Smarty's happiness with the sheer effort it would take two put out two more EXTREMELY time intensive comics just like the first one...including this finale, by far the longest of all three.

In the end, I decided I would give it a go.  I wanted to challenge myself to give Smarty an uplifting and happy ending that she deserved, because I grew attached to her so much as a character.  I felt I had created something...someONE truly special, and wanted the best for her, even if it meant sacrificing a lot of time and effort, and pushing aside a ton of ideas I've really been wanting to get done to do so.  As I'm sure everyone who has patiently stuck with me throughout this comic realized, this turned out to be a very long project in the making, and by far the most ambitious thing I've completed so far.  I've ended a former tragedy on an uplifting note, and I'm sure many will appreciate that Smarty Pants got the happy ending she was looking forward to.

It's a rather bittersweet feeling, knowing I won't be drawing any more of this series, and that something I've been artistically inspired to do for so long has finally been brought to an uplifting conclusion. I guess it's common for artists to feel this way, experiencing a sense of creative emptiness or perhaps exhaustion after completing a huge ambitious project, and then asking themselves, "What's next?"  I feel as though a miles-high mountain I've been struggling to climb for months has finally been conquered, yet now I wonder what other mountains there are for me to climb.

There are a couple ideas I've been juggling in my head for a while.  So far the biggest one is a webcomic about the adventures of Princess Berry Punch, this Princess of the Almighty Bottle from way back when:

Princess Pinot-Noiria: Character Reference by BerryPAWNCH

But that's a story for another update.

In the meantime, I would like to say my final thanks now that this series has concluded:

Thank you to Twilight, for coming around and reuniting with your childhood friend, and giving her a new start on a new life.

Thank you to Spike and the Elements of Harmony, for growing up with Twilight and providing her the circle of friends and support network to see her through all times good and bad.

Thank you to Twilight's rockstar husband Flash Sentry and their daughter Starwish, for reminding Twilight of the importance of being there for your family and spending quality time together.

Thank you to Smarty Pants, for inspiring me to embrace the challenge of writing and drawing a comic as ambitious as this, providing me the opportunity to learn and grow as an artist in ways I never thought possible.

Thank you to Goody Two Shoes and Baby Know It All, you adorably wacky little Study Buddies you.

And finally, my biggest thank you to every one of you who commented, faved, and shared this little labor of love of mine, and provided me with the support that powered me through to the end.  I don't think I could have finished something this lengthy and ambitious if it wasn't for all your words of encouragement and appreciation.  You are what made this comic happen, you are the people who inspire me to contribute works like this, and I am deeply grateful for all the great support you've shown me throughout this project, and indeed, ever since that shaky day several years ago when I was browsing this site and wondering if I did indeed have what it took to even start a gallery here on DA.  Meeting all of you online and in person was well worth it...and man has all of it been a trip.

From all of us here at the Sparkle and Friends household...stay classy, everybody.

:)

Hey dude, what programs do you use?

Adobe Photoshop CS5...pretty much from start to finish.  Sketched, inked, and colored in a whole bunch of layers.

There are newer versions available from what I've read, but considering I've been sticking to most of the basic stuff features-wise, it isn't worth the big bucks to upgrade yet.  Also, I'm the kind of guy who uses stuff until it falls apart :D
