Star Mares 3.1.10-11: Doo Bee Tay! by ChrisTheS
Star Mares 3.1.10-11: Doo Bee Tay!
Since this sequence doesn't have a lot of translated text, I tried to add as many visual gags as I could.  Some of them might only be funny to me, of course.

Most of you probably know the tune this is set to, but here it is anyway.  On a side note, does anyone know of any HD fan remixes of ROTJ that use the blu-ray version of Jabba's Palace but the original for the rest of the movie?  (Or even just a version of the Blu-ray release that gets rid of Vader's "NOOOOOOOOO"?)  It's awfully annoying to have to switch between the BR and the Despecialized version at the one-third point to get the version I want to see...

It's a lot trickier than I expected it would be to find real (or even mythological) animal equivalents of certain Star Wars species.  I spent the better part of a day on Google Image trying to find something to use for the Bith before finally settling on the star-nosed mole, and I went through a lot of different types of antelope before settling on the topi for the Twi-leks (the choice of tapir for Rodians was easier, but I made that decision back in volume 1 so it doesn't count). I left Max Rebo pretty much as he was, just changed his feet to make him a pygmy elephant.

Guest appearances by Watermelon Dash (:iconkitty-blu:), a pair of dwarf minotaurs I never got names for (:iconserpensvolucer:), Misty Medax (Scarlett-Honnie Bee), Zebracorn (:icondarthrivan:), and Seaside (:iconblackfeenix:).

Star Mares 3.1.9: The Show Must Go On by ChrisTheS
Star Mares 3.1.9: The Show Must Go On
I'm sure if I'd tried I could make her even more tasteless, but this will do.  Sy Snootles' lips are, of course, the most important change made in the RotJ special edition, so I knew I had to include them somewhere.  The idea of glamming up her cutie mark actually came after reading one of :iconperfectblue97:'s 'Without Magic' pages.

In this, Joh Yowza is a proboscis monkey.  It was my first effort at making a fingered biped in this style, and was somewhat hampered by the fact that there are apparently no photos of proboscis monkeys that aren't obscene, so it's kind of not good.  Bear with me, he's only on two pages :)

Star Mares 3.1.7: The Top Dog by ChrisTheS
Star Mares 3.1.7: The Top Dog
I'm hardly the first to come up with 'Jabba the Mutt,' but it is certainly convenient that MLP just happened to already have a canine criminal cartel that I could slot smoothly into the comic by the change of a single letter.  I made him a pug because of my friend's dog (who once tried to eat my plastic D&D minis), only to discover while looking for reference photos that she wasn't even half as pudgy as some examples of the breed.

Jabba's court is the first substantial appearance of aliens in the trilogy (the cantina scene being more of an oasis of weird in an otherwise overwhelmingly human movie), so I tried to really diversify my menagerie.  Special thanks to everyone who lent me their characters (especially the non-pony ones) for this segment.

Guest appearances by: Blackfeather (:iconmdwebster:), Watermelon Dash (:iconkitty-blu:), Primo and Zebracorn (:icondarthrivan:), with more to come.

Star Mares 3.1.6: Just Offal by ChrisTheS
Star Mares 3.1.6: Just Offal
I like my ponies to be contradictory.  In Maple Leaf's case, it's the fact that she's terrified of actually using her party pony skills, but has considerable professional pride in them regardless.  This one is my favorite Leafy moment of the entire series (even more than the unicorn disguise).

The reference image for the kitchen is, appropriately, the droid torture room set from the movie.

What would a character based on Grand Admiral Thrawn look like, and be named, in Star Mares?

Not sure. I'd have to find a species that's more unicorny than unicorns. Since being blue is hardly unusual in MLP.

Hey Chris,
I hate to ask this, because it would likely be a lot of work, but I was wondering if you could at some point give us a cast page(s). Maybe with some notes on where some of the characters first came from or who inspired them. Particularly for your main characters. (Eg. Gracenote, Spring Clean, Cookie Cutter, etc.)

The characters page on TVTropes pretty much covers that.

Heya, Chris! I drew a Maple Leaf! ... Or at least my attempt at doing a fanart of her. >.>

Not the most original drawing idea ever admittedly, but I figured I should show it to you nonetheless. =P

Go ahead. Can't promise I'll do it, but anyone can ask :)

Thank you. Do you think you can draw my OC (starvagrant.deviantart.com/art…) in one of the alternate timelines from "The Cutie Remark"?
