20% Cooler by Toxic-Mario 20% Cooler by Toxic-Mario
Well here we go. This comic will kick off a new string of new more random comics from me. Seriously.....a lot of people have been begging me to move down this road. :eager: I'm not giving up my quality that is for sure. This comic still took over 11 hours to do.

I basically tried to think of how on earth to make a comic with Twilight that's so simple with the the 20% cooler line bad it's hilarious. Hence the joke of the comic! SWAG TWILIGHT! :D

Anyway hope you all like this comic. :)Little different but still tried to put as much detail in it as I usually do. So.....onto the next one. Oh yeah!

Time spent: 14 hours over 3 days
How I did it: Paper + Photoshop CS5

PLEASE don't steal this. Remember to link this back to me if you put this on a site or something.

Vision: Well it was pretty clear what you were going for even before I read the complete comic. It's not the most original joke but then again the way it's brought more then compensates for that. I do however like your choice of character very much in this. Seeing as Twilight is the most "dorky" of the group. Making her do the joke and the reaction of RD is something you would expect and it makes sense.

Originality: I can't say I ever saw someone draw twilight sparkle with sunglasses. I am betting there is a vector somewhere but not one in which the glasses are used for something like this so good job on that. On the other hand (and you already pointed this out) the joke is over used.

Technique: The background is pretty damn well detailed. I can only think about a few other artist who take this kind of pride in that work and I love it. There was thing I had a question mark with: the one house to the far left is coloured in the same way as the house in the front (far right) making them pop out. While the other background houses are more blurred. The thing is I don't know why only 1 house in the background pops out and why the rest has to be blurred. For the characters: I can't find any small mistakes like bleeding colours or faulty lines so props to you. Only thing I could think of that could use some improvement is the face of RD in the first frame. It seems to be a bit stretched. And I could talk about the shadows. But we all know those black circles are the norm so I can't really blame you for that. I can however tell you that if you decide to draw shadows more realistic that it would make you stand out even more. But I don't know how hard it is to draw shadows and if it's even worth putting effort in.

Impact: I wrote this first seeing as the impact is the best right after reading a comic. My first reaction to it was a small laugh and a proper smile on my face. On the long term though it does not leave much of a impact. Good for a quick laugh but not something I would come back to. But that's of course because now I already know the joke.

In the end: I do like your comic. But more in the sense of good and quick, because it doesn't really stick. I am trying to find better words for it but they don't seem to be appearing so I am going with this: your comic made me smile but it did not make me want to share it with all my friends. But as Pinkie pie once said: Just give me a joyfill grin and you fill me with good cheer.

ROFL I find this pretty hilarious but I'm somewhat surprised you made a comic with only a few panels. Meh, I like variety anyway. =p

Did you make this comic because of your new icon? :XD: That's probably the main reason for this. There are a few other things you could have used like it saying *facehoof* instead of *smack* in last panel and Twilight could also have used the "deal with it" phrase in a 4th panel.

Putting only 4 stars for originality because sure its overused and all over the place for things we see /watch / comment on but its still good.

Rainbow dash: hey twilight *sings*
If I could write you a song and make you fall in love
I would already have you like under my arms
I used up all of my tricks
I hope that you like this
but you probably wont
you think you're cooler than me
you've got designer shades just to hide your face
you wear them around like you're cooler than me
and you never say hey or remember my name
and its probably cause you're cooler than me

I know you made this a year ago but this isn't really a joke, just her repeating something that's not even a catchphrase.

I have friend that said that there's actually a fanfic where Rainbow Dash shows a mathematical equation for calculating percentages of coolness.
