You ever sit for an hour or two, flipping through screencaps, trying to map out the road and countryside that passes by Fluttershy's cottage, all to build coherent backgrounds for a comic that will take you weeks to draw only to culminate in a bad pun, and suddenly have it dawn on you that you have a very frivolous hobby?

 

Perhaps the word "frivolous" was a bit harsh...

You're working too hard for a joke. That's the worst part. Actually, the worst part is if the joke wasn't good, in the end. You do all this research and you realize "whoops... this is actually pretty weak"

Yeah. I put way too much effort into half-baked ideas on the name of "practice".

Most of my longer comic scripts are basically an excuse to learn layout and backgrounds. That way if I ever do have an idea that isn't dumb I'll be ready for it.

I have never had an idea that wasn't dumb.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I do all kinds of research just for a quick joke and then I realize what I've done.

So yeah, I'm in the same league.
