Eh... I'm not the best person to get critiques from... But I do try my best each time somebody asks for it. And since there's none yet for this, as least from what I see...
Vision: If you told me that the actual producers of My Little Pony did this, I would have actually believed it. And, been happy cuz DERPY IS HERE. Most people who draw comics for MLP, don't add any shading at all near the hooves, but this one has it... so... I don't know, I just really liked how it just has it. One thing that slightly disturbed me, although it isn't important at all probably, is the smoke that came from the muffin in the first panel. It looked really flat... and... just bothered me. But again, you really don't have to worry about that, xD.
Originality: I could never think of this. I never read something like this, and I mean it in a good way. I totally forgot how the pegasus made rainbows from that one episode, and even if I did remember, I would have just imagined for Scootaloo to steal some when she pretended to be a worker or something. The fact that the two actually met up with sunglasses (loved that moment) and then she traded with a MUFFIN, just made me love it more. Huge muffin, must say.
Technique: Inkscape is very handy, but in my opinion... extremely hard to use... *fails at it* All that layering and shadows and the images look like they came RIGHT OUT of the show! That's how good it is! *has nothing else to say really* xD.
Impact: This whole comic needed absolutely no lines, and I totally got what was going on, and laughed. You only used two lines at the very end, and that made a huge little 'uh oh' and 'lol' in my mind.
What do you think?
