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!

Wow! This one of my favorites from you. I like your style, and the black lines make it more interesting. I have heard the expression, "if you don't stop making that face it will freeze that way.", but I've never seen it used in my little pony before. I think using discord to do it makes everything even more funny. And then how you added derpy. Ha, derpy makes everything 20 % cooler. Or funnier in this case. Though I think Pinkie's face in the 3rd panned looks like she's flirting with him. Above all I give it about a four and a half.

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.
