Apple-Smack by Toxic-Mario Apple-Smack by Toxic-Mario
HUZZAH I finally drew Applebloom in a comic again. :) First time in 3 months. Drew Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle a LOT since then but Applebloom...sadly no. Actually amazed she came out so good after 3 months of not drawing her. I call it 70% luck.


Call this another mini-comic I guess. :D To me the BG is ok...could have done a lot better. Seriously...Sweet Apple Acres is always the BG I have the most annoyance and/or trouble with....IDK. Even indoor settings are easy now. *Toxic-Mario logic* :stupidme:


Anyway guys hope you like this little comic. Comments always help and the critiques. I read and reply to everything. Onto the next comic....oh there is a muffin here...I hid it well. :P


Time spent: 23 hours over 4 days
How I did it: Paper + Photoshop CS5


PLEASE don't COPY, trace, or recolor any of this WITHOUT asking me. Remember to link this back to me if you put this on a site or something.

Alright, another comic another critique! Hmmmm seems as if Applebloom could use some help with apple bucking...Anyway, i greatly enjoyed this comic! Again even for such a short comic the message was sent well enough to convey what you meant and in only 4 panels. Now time for the break up:

Vision: I think that your vision of your comic turned out pretty much how you wanted (judging by your comments). I really like how it turned out and can say that I thoroughly enjoyed the plot, even though it was very short.

Originality: The plot was plain in sight, yet I have never seen it done before. Your story is simple to understand, yet no one has thought of it, and if they have I apologize for my lack of recognition. The drawings are hand drawn, thus taking originality to an entirely new level (said this last time and will say it again).

Technique: You have yet again captured the "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" drawing style, however I didn't expect you to lose it. The drawings are smooth, the apples stay in the air to simulate movement, and the shadows are well placed. Two things however brought my 5 down to a 4. This is being picky, but I noticed that all the apples have a shine on them except the background apples. Although they are background, Lighting would apply there as well (though I noticed the tree shadows fall correctly, which is nice). Also, if one looks ever so closely, there are specs of color that don't belong within the trees. For example, panel one has a little green triangle at the bottom of the hill (far left). Minor problems though.

Impact: I loved the comic. Despite what it was about, a four panel comic that can convey a message thoroughly has a pretty big impact on me. I will say that it is a little random and short (not a problem) which lowers it only a little bit :) .

Overall the deviation was wonderful! If I had to change one thing, it might be the muffin. I'm not going to say where it is, for that would ruin the fun :) , however I am red/green colorblind (to an extent) and man does that muffin blend in. I know that was the purpose, and maybe this is just me :) . Keep up the great work!

These kind of comics are always funny because even though they get hurt from a huge variety of things, all it does is make them dizzy. Wish that worked for us. =p

We all know size means everything right? Well how is Applebloom able to hit so many apples off of the tree when she is smaller then Applejack and therefore has less power to hit with? O_o Sure we all know her cutie mark is gonna be apple related and it will be her special talent just like Applejack's but it messes with my mind!!

I find it a little funny/weird that the apples in the background trees look completely different then the ones Applebloom kicks down. :XD:

One final thing..... WHERE IS THE MUFFIN IN THIS COMIC?!?!?!?!
