Just Give it a Try by Toxic-Mario Just Give it a Try by Toxic-Mario
Well this was a very interesting comic to com up with a name for. I had several ideas floating around in my head but i decided to go with a simple one. Sue me. :XD: Oh and new record! 27 hours!

Anyway I wantd to try something I RARELY do....a pre-episode comic but this time I had a perfect reason how Rainbow could have ended up in the hospital. Rarity! :iconpinkiepienoesplz: Kind of could make sense especially since she said Rainbow was gonna get it.

I had a lot of fun and trouble with this comic. I basically winged everything on the background cause we really have no clue what the hospital setting will look like....yet. I love when I have the ability to free draw new stuff like that! :D Anyway I love how this came out. So what you think? Comments? Critiques? :)

Time spent: 27 hours over 5 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.

Rainbow Dash, Twilight Lauren Faust

Pretty funny comic. Rarity did say she was going to get Dash! :D
5 stars for vision and impact because it's clear and easy to see what you're going for here.
As far as originality, I have seen this idea of Rarity being the one who put poor Dash into the hospital before, but I don't think I've seen a comic made out of it.
Technique appears good, though in the first few panels, Twilight's face appears a bit too long. Her face could probably stand to be a little bit shorter. Also, the wrinkles in Dash's blanket seem a little flat. That may be a matter of personal preference, but I tend to give my wrinkles a bit of a hook at the very end of some of them(a bit like a 'j'), since fabric tends to fold over itself a little bit when wrinkled. And the balloons could be just a little bit bigger.

Overall, funny idea and great comic! Keep it up!

I loved this one right from the start! Yeah, it seems that quite a few people seem to make the joke that Rarity is the one who PUTS Rainbow Dash in the hospital, but that only means that a LOT of people find the idea to be funny.

I hate to say this, but I had to mark you down a star on technique. Don't get me wrong, your art is stupendous as always, but... you kinda reused the frame a bit much. This could have been done in a more compact comic, saving yourself quite a lot of time.

Vision... again, I hate having anything negative to say about your work... leading with the punchline, and ending without it is a bit of a no-no where comedy is concerned.

Hopefully you find this helpful. Love ya, Toxie!
