This was all drawn digitally in Flash. At this point, I was using the brush tool to paint the lines, rather than converting them from pencil-tool strokes (which is how I've gotten the show-authentic look on more recent pics)
The only reason I drew this comic is because of the gag with the shipping name. And yeh, I had fun with her expressions, going to "LiarJack" towards the end, since I figure she's trying to figure out how she's going to explain how this relationship stuff actually works, to Apple Bloom.
If you want to get into silly ship names, there's always x = Moon Pie.
