Making Wine by Choedan-Kal Making Wine by Choedan-Kal
Pencil sketch colored with Paint Tool SAI using a WACOM tablet (each panel was colored individually and slight style/color choice differences are evident). Berry Punch making wine. I hesitate to call this a comic, but I suppose it is sequential art. Despite the apparent flood of Berry Punch art, she isn’t my favorite background pony, but I do like wine and thought it would be nice to feature her in a few more…tasteful situations. If nothing else, as an Oenophile, I can sympathize.

A few notes: The first panel was not originally part of this series. It was, instead, a digital recolor of a real media (marker) picture I did as practice using SAI for the first time. However, since it fit with the theme, I decided to include it. The second panel has already been posted as its own deviation – I liked how it turned out – although I flipped the orientation to better match the image flow. RD looks like a bit of a creeper in the 3rd panel, but also cute.

Clapping Pony Icon - Rainbow Dash : Woo-hoo! Berry Punch took first prize! She's the awesomest winemaking mare in Equestria!

Derpy Clapping Icon : Yaaaay! I don't drink because my eyes already look drunk! (giggles) Derp!

Clapping Pony Icon - Rainbow Dash : (facehoof) Derpy, Derpy, Derpy...

BerryPunch  : (raises glass) To fine wine and good friends. I have boysenberry juice and blueberry muffins over here, Derpy.

Derpy Clapping Icon: Yaaaaaay!

Thank you so much for portraying Berry Punch in a positive and refined light! The fan art of her as the Ponyville town drunk gets old after a while, especially since it's dominated by, shall we say, lowbrow humor. :)

Thanks, and you are welcome. Although I sometimes find the drunk Berry jokes funny, I agree it can get old and so wanted to show an example of positive, responsible wine enjoyment. :)

I agree with you. Berry can't be an award-winning vintner mare if she's plastered all the time.
Of all the panels in this deviation, I like the first one the most. Berry is so happy and proud of her harvest. It's almost like she's inviting us to sample a few right off the vine before they're collected and crushed.
I like to think she grows strawberries as well, per her cutie mark, but they are in another part of her vineyard.

Maybe. I didn't have a a specific varietal in mind (other than some kind of red).

Oh Berry achieved the first place, nice one.

Curious, I though Rainbow only liked apple cider not wine.

That makes much more sense than her being a drunkard.

I like this better than "she's a drunk".
