What Kids Enjoy by Toxic-Mario What Kids Enjoy by Toxic-Mario
:iconpinkiesmileplz: Oh man....am I paying for this comic. Talk about sacrificing your body for an epic comic. I stayed up until 6am trying to finish this for today.....and I'm paying for it. :faint: I really need a nap.


Anyway onto the comic....HUZZAH! Back to pure canon based comics. They are always the most fun to work on....although this one was sooo tough to sketch up. :pissed: I tried 2 new ponies....the twins and man they are A LOT trickier than they look. Those heads....UGH....such a pain to get right. Did the final 2 sections of Sugar Cube Corner so now I have technically drawn all of the first floor of SGC in 3 comics. :)


So guys....I'm...too tired to write anymore. Really hope you guys liked this comic....truely didn't think it would turn out this good based off the paper sketches. Comments or critiques are always appreciated. Remember I will reply to EVERY single one. :D


Time spent: 24 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.

I love this comic. To start with, it's very funny. The flour gag was good enough on its own, and seeing Twilight's reaction to Pinkie's... methods is downright priceless. I'm surprised nobody else has done this, in fact - so full marks on Originality. This is 100% in-character, and it absolutely sells the humor.

However, the art is a little iffy. The backgrounds are fine, but the ponies need a smidgen of work: if you're going for a show-accurate style, you need to work on the faces a little more. Proportions are ever-so-slightly off, especially with the eyes in panels 2 and 3 from a head-on perspective. The flour could also be a little poofier - if it had come out in a massive cloud in panel 5, it would be more exciting to look at, rather than just a little blip of spillage. As it is, it's a little abrupt, and the viewer has to use a little too much imagination to fill in the joke. That would have been tricky, of course, and I recognize that. An easier "fix" might be to make Twilight's eyes bug out a little, as she sees what's coming - it's about Twilight's reaction, after all, so it would be appropriate, too. As it is, it's the one missing detail that stops me from giving 5 out of 5 for Impact - if that weren't an issue, the "punchline" delivery would be flawless.

My only other quibble is that I'd have the Baby Cakes doing a bit more in panel 1. Have Pound Cake actually pounding blocks together, and/or have Pumpkin Cake levitating a block around. Just a little something to spice it up a little.

Other than that, fantastic work. I instantly fave'd.

In one of the episodes, Pinkie Pie babysits the cake twins, and quickly discovers that they laugh whenever she opens a bag of flour over her head, causing her to get covered in flour. She does this several times during the episode, to keep them happy, and they do it for her at the end, because she starts to cry out of frustration of her situation, which quickly got... out of hoof, if you will.
