Thought I'd forget about the pony Doc, did you? Nope, he's back for a fantastic holiday adventure!



Here's the special. And really, the last holiday-themed work from me for this season. (I hope this works! :O_o:) I think there may have been enough. =P

Anyway, this is also an entry for the Zap-Apple-Acres :iconzap-apple-acres: Hearth's Warming Eve contest: [link]

It should show why this has taken me so much time. Everything is custom-vectored, mostly sans show references! But the most important thing I've learned from this project was naturally how to export flash animations from Illustrator. Hoo boy, was trying to GIF this ever a bad idea. You wouldn't believe the setbacks. I think I'll stick to this solution if I ever animate a comic again.

Anyway, hope you've enjoyed this and, again, have a ponyrific Christmas. :)

First off I will talk about the non-animated frames. The lines are wonderfully smooth and well done, while the idea of it wholly is new and creative. Truly amazing.

While derpy seems a bit fuzzy to be in the last two panels, the time this must have took must be a while. The bright happy colors and the little Easter eggs hidden here and there are a glorious find.

Now about the feelings the whole thing creates. Its the wonderful holiday spirit that overtakes this picture's writing and idea, and the cuteness of it just stacks on top of it all. The little moments that grant us the feelings of joy are written all over this cute little thing.

And now about the last frame, where I have a few concerns. The animation is smooth and clean, but there are still a few things I'm worried about. The muffins simply just fall into the pile of muffins, no clear shadow or backwards movement clear. Derpy is just floating there in midair, no apparent reasoning for her being stuck in midair. Her text bubble is lovely, leaving the thoughts of what does she love about muffins once again deeper into the mystery it presents. I understand this tho, and it might take more time and effort.

Also, first Critique, so extremely sorry if I'm not good.
