YAY! Twilight Missing Being The Mare Do Well Animated APNG Comic
Because who haven't used a bed cover to make a cape?
The first bit of inspiration for this comic was "Mare Do Well
" by ~BonesWolbach
: The aforementioned hero, on the top of a building, contemplating the people/city under her. Then the idea evolved when I read My first comic
again. Some panels to establishing a mood, and then a twist, an "abrupt" turn to something funny.Attribution Time!
●The nocturnal view of Ponyville is a modified version of the amazingly detailed "A View of Ponyville" by ~Hellswolfeh, badly obscured so it looked "at night".
●Twilight is a slightly modified version of the vector created for my comic "I wasn't prepared for that" plus a "Night Filter" taken from the SVG version of ~BonesWolbach's "Summer Campfire". There is more info.
●Spike is a slightly modified version of my "Spike is not Amused", plus a candlestick and the same Night Filter from above.
●You can find Twilight with the cape Here (Shaded) and Here (Animated).
●The background of the rest of the panels is from a single image traced from the episode "Lesson Zero". I'll post it later
Because the shading of Mare Do Well, and the light reflected in Spike's face, and the flame light itself, I decided to make this comic as an Animated PNG (APNG) instead of a GIF to avoid banding and color loss. Only Opera and Firefox can display it natively (Or with this extension
for Chrome). Since the animation is not a central point of this comic, it's not really important if you can't see it; however, I'll upload a GIF later just in case. (Edit:Here it is
I couldn't make the APNG to play well with transparencies, so the resulting file is quite big. Just give it time ;)
Corrected. See Below.
