My Little Pony - Big Macintosh and Caramel

Lazy background was lazy. But oh well. Have some gay ponies.

And just a regular vector for those who want to use it for evil, or something:

The shading is wonderful and their expressions are amazing. This drawing is very well done.
Great job.

It's a cute drawing, looks really passionate between the two. But in my opinion the blush looks too pronounced, almost like blood smeared onto their cheeks.

And I'm surprised by the comment sections, though I probably shouldn't be XD I'm not a fan of the ship but meh. It's an interesting turn away from Fluttershy and Big Mac....Or Braeburn and Big Mac.

Also how long did it take for you to make this? Sorry, simply curious.

No need to be sorry! Let me see if I can recall...About 4 hours? During the time I didn't have my tablet, so I had to use the mouse to ink everything. So it took a bit of time. 

As for the comments section...Meh. People hate for the weirdest things. Though, I find it a little weird that the femmslash doesn't get as much controversial hate on the first page though. Oh well. I wasn't bothered by it. I've had worst in other fandoms.

I have no idea how you manage to do something so clean in four hours XD I can never work those programs to do what I want them to, ends up a blurry mess of color. 

Oh, of course it wouldn't get as much hate, that's such a double standard XD And yeah, it's really worth being bothered by. For everyone's opinions or thoughts someone is going have the exact opposite out there, whether it be reasonable or not... Any way great work X3

What program do you use? I tend to do all my art in Sumopaint. Free to use, and I use it for EVERYTHING: sumopaint.com/app/
I personally think it's easier to use, as well. I just can not wrap my head around photoshop.

Exactly. Only time I get offended, these days, is when a comment is specifically attacking me, rather than the material I'm drawing for. Ain't got no time f'that! *sassy snap*

That said, thaaank you. I'm glad you like it!

I use Smoothdraw, which I basically just draw something up in pencil and then color it in using this... XD

kora-the-dragoness.deviantart.… Here's what I come up with, this sort of messy blur. I'm not really good with it, I've actually stopped for quite a while and just stuck with pencil drawings...

I don't think that's bad at all, actually! You know...have you ever thought about playing withe the sharpness? That can make it less blurry.

If you're willing to fiddle around for a bit, I DO recommend sumopaint. You can scan the pictures after you hand draw them, and then just open it up in the program. Then you can use the line tools on the side to ink. Then, on another layer, color! Easy peasy. :D

I find this really adorable couple, many people are uncomfortable with this sort of thing, but no damage occurs to them, I like as much as I like heterosexual couples, that does not make me a lesbian or not makes me bad person, and if lesbian, what?. I like your work, draw very well, and really admire his style, so I step out for a Watch with a lot gusto! ^ ^

¡Muchas gracias! Estoy de acuerdo; usted no tiene que ser gay para gustar parejas homosexuales. Está bien para encontrar todo amor de lindos. No entiendo por qué la gente trata de luchar sobre él. Dicho esto, me alegro de que te guste mi dibujo. :heart:

Cool story, bro. Good on you for having an opinion. However, that said...This will not change MY stance on gay slash pairings. Why would it, when I--myself-- am gay? I can understand not liking porn, not everyone does, but THIS is just a pic of two consenting stallions kissing. That's it. So what's your problem here?

Well, you have to understand that there are trolls out there -- "super trolls", if you will -- whose comments are so unbelievably asinine that it's impossible to ignore them. You can see the bind I was in. :iconfluttershyshrugplz:

"In a world full of Super Trolls, there is only one hero willing to face down their injustice. Coming soon, to a theater near you: Shamrock 95."

That said, I can understand how sometimes it's just too much. Especially when they are people who are spreading their hate for no reason.

Well, an adorable picture of two stallions kissing shows up and the first two pages is full of arguing that could've easily - EASILY - been avoided had some silly sausage thought twice about what they were about to post.

People-not-comfortable-with-gay-pones aside, I love this. I'm not one for shipping, I'll admit, but I do so like Caramac. So, Miss DarkwingSnark, though you can't see it, I am physically standing up, applauding, and taking my hat off to you. Excellent work!

There will always be people trying to cause trouble. The important thing is to not let it bother you. Besides that, they have every right to feel the way they did...Just wasn't polite to mention it, is all. But like I said, I wasn't bothered. After years of being a slash fan, you get used to this sort of nonsense.

And also uncomfortable people aside- thank you! Feels good to know people enjoy what I'm doing. :D

"Homosexuality is disgusting! Now draw me some lesbians!" - lots of bronies. You guys crack me up.
Anyway, the art... so cute! That lip bite, accidental or not, really adds to it. It makes it seem more intimate. I also really like that background.

I noticed that as a pattern as well. It's pretty funny. You'd think, as a whole, the fandom would be all about tolerance. Especially since we are watching a show originally meant for little girls. LOL

And thank you! It was a fun piece to do. I've been meaning to try and draw a MLP kiss, and after some sudden inspiration, I just had to quickly throw it out there. Plus, I've been meaning to draw more of the pairing anyway. It's so sad how little I see of these two together.

It's one of the ways to make a kiss more enjoyable, THAT'S for sure. Plus, seeing as I tend to lean towards Caramel being a shy pony...It pleases me to imagine that he really got lost in the kiss.

I think Caramel is shy in public but he comes out of his shell when he's alone with Big Macintosh.

Yes, I agree. I can imagine Big Mac's quiet but friendly nature makes ponies feel comfortable around him in general.
