The REAL Winner by RedApropos The REAL Winner by RedApropos
Lemme take this popportunity to shout out a YouTube video I acted in with my friend. This is it: youtu.be/bCnplO2R9E4

I'm sure you noticed it doesn't say RedApropos at the top.

Well, in these past few weeks of being locked out of my account, I found I didn't enjoy taking on the new name "Aprop0s." At the same time, however, I never thought I would be going back to being "RedApropos."

Unsure of what I wanted to do, I made an executive decision to be ME, and go by MY name, "Edwin Maki."

But before I go changing things all willy-nilly, I want to know what the people think. I would still go by the nickname "Red," as so many people have gotten used to calling me, but I would no longer stand behind a screen name or persona.

What do you think? Please let me know!

Also, I hope you guys liked the comic! :D

Excellent piece, Mr. Maki, a sweet and simple story saturated in saccharine silliness!
One of the things I like best in this comic is your capture of character: the conflict introduced and the way it plays out feels very close to the way things would happen in the world of the show, with Discord's style of pranking being spot-on and Pinkies confidence and subsequent rage also being quite accurate. I particularly like panel 7-9, where Pinkie is utterly enraged, yet keeps her insults limited to personal opinions rather than objective statements (she doesn't call Discord a jerk, she just she doesn't much care for what he's doing at this moment). I like the idea that Pinkie wouldn't actually insult a close friend of hers, but would only say that she was "so upset with them right now", because she'd never really call someone she loves mean names. Also, the fact that she has to yell such an intensely nonchalant criticism while keeping her silly face is hilarious!
The timing also works very well, with none of the reactions happening too fast or too slow. Perhaps the only major change I would advise would be to split the final panel into two, where in the first one we see somepony off-panel saying "Did he get you too?" and then in the next shot we see it's Derpy saying it, thereby setting up the joke in one panel and giving the punchline in the next. But, as that isn't the main joke of the comic, it's fine as it is.
As I've said before, I've always liked your use of exaggerated facial expressions for comedic effect, and it's good to see a comic where you literally make that the focus! Well done!

What software?

Heh heh. It's called "Paper, Pencil, and Ink!" Always, for every comic I've ever drawn: sta.sh/217bm6m79i7i?edit=1

Hmm... Youtube. If you ever have problems with Hasbro or age restrictions or flagging consider Vimeo or Dailymotion to host said video. Many bronies have managed to upload full episodes of Friendship Is Magic to DailyMotion.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooope! Btw I think that you should let people call you what they want to call you and when you reply back you should tell them your other name and ask them if they want to use that so that you're not forcing people to call you something.

Ps I enjoy having a nickname, its fun to me, nicknames aren't screen names they're like a second name. My actual nickname actual is my sort of second name! My mom liked the way this one part of my middle name sounded so she now calls me INA! Pronounced like you say the letter e then na.
