Cuddle Grump by CaptainPudgeMuffin

Some scores are a little off due to touchscreen and tiny interface, but key being I really like this. Positives: pretty much everything...

Too Much Information by Sintakhra

Because it's really well done, the suggestions I have are probably pretty minor. I think the joke's been done, but it's a funny one so ...

I'm about finished with my draft script for the video version of my "Problem with bronies" infographic. I've spent the last three and a half weeks working on it almost every day because I'm doing my very best to make it a video that anyone (other than hater bullies) can benefit from. I want bronies to be able to point friends and family to it to help them understand what bronies are and what they aren't. It's very difficult balancing the need to put useful data in there without it being too wordy or long or confusing while making it convincing without sounding like I'm attacking the "other side". 

Any takers? Someone with writing or editing experience would be helpful.
Crabapple and Willow 9 by Nimaru
Crabapple and Willow 9
This ends the "Heart Dive" part of this story (don't worry, the story's not over yet).

If you got lost, what's happening is that Willow's fellow healer's joined together (into one consciousness) to dive deep into her heart's pain. They experience it as a visual manifestation of her pain... in this case, the future vision that Princess Celestia knew would become reality if Nightmare Moon wasn't stopped. A bit of that vision leaked to Winter Willow and has been slowly eating at her and becoming more dangerous over time (a malady untreated...)

It was too much for most of the ponies and they fell unconscious and dropped out of the link. Unable to maintain the link alone, Heartsong feared it was all over, but Rose Petal held on. Together they found Winter Willow's heart manifested as a diminutive and child-like version of herself.

THIS COMIC:

In this comic, Rose and Heartsong are standing with her to give her strength and encouragement, but they can't actually do anything else. They have no effect on this world which is why ONLY Winter Willow casts light on the objects in the world. As Willow sees that she can stand against the darkness, she becomes stronger and braver. Rose and Heartsong stand with her for hours or days... time is unknowable, but their strength is faltering. They guide her with the words that Winter Willow herself uses to heal others; it's the truth of heart pain.

In my personal experience, things that hurt, old fears, agony, trauma... they never heal EVER. No matter how old you get. But they can become weaker and fade to the point that you remember them, but no longer feel them. Doing so requires that when you recall the pain, you don't throw it out of your mind. Grab it like a lightning bug in your hand and stare at at. Let it hurt, but don't look away. When you stop running, the pain begins to weaken over time.

That is what this story represents. It's Winter Willow; through her own pride and fear falling victim to the same weakness that she helps others overcome. She's so far gone after a time that she barely survived it, but as of this moment, the danger has passed. Her healing isn't complete, but it's finally begun and her Heart sensing has returned to full strength.

The ugly pony is a damaged and ugly fragment of Willow's heart.

The last scene is Willow at near fulls strength while Rose and Heartsong have both become very weak. Theyr'e not dead... Willow just sent them out of the link so they could finally rest because she was strong enough to stand on her own.

Sketchover - Syforce by Nimaru
Sketchover - Syforce
A sketchover request. Something to do to get me away from the comic briefly. I ended up having to add extra scenes and so it's going to take longer than I thought :(

But about this, the posing is good and expressions. Most everything is where it's supposed to be, though the tails float a little more than they should and you need some curvature to the overall tone. Thicken up the legs (especially on boys). The boy ponies are still a little short compared to normal, but I wasn't sure if that was intentional in this case so I went a little small.

Hey guys! I love doing art, but I have to make a living too. I'm not doing commssions or anything, but if you want to help me, just check out my awesome website www.goodpricescome.com. It's a gift registry and list website where you can keep lists of things you want to eventually buy when the prices are cheap enough. My family has been using the site for years to secretly coordinate gifts for birthdays and Christmas so please check it out!

I found a fanfic on fimfiction that is nearly perfect copy of your comic The real story.

Well, I noticed you tried to use thumbnails in a few descriptions. ^^ But actually, I kinda feel the same way. :XD: I can already browse ad free, so the only point would be thumbnails, polls, and journal skins. :)
