I wasn't prepared for That by tamalesyatole I wasn't prepared for That by tamalesyatole
YAY! Season 3 Preview Animated Comic!

Looks like everybodypony is making vectors of that scene, so I said "Well, nobodypony has done a Comic, so..." I made one.

I thought that that scene is so beautiful, inspiring and iconic, that I might do more comics about that, if I manage to do a good punchline for each one...

And since the last panel could spoil the punchline, I simply didn't show it in the thumbnail. Sorry for that.
By the way, that anemometer looks a lot like a Fan, doesn't?

Anyway, this time I did the most of the vectors, with the only exception being:
"Canterlot Street Night" by *BonesWolbach, except that I recolored it because I needed it during daytime.
Something interesting I discovered when vectoring Twilight's hair was that only the Top (Fringe) has 6 frames, and the tail and Back Mane had only 5, so I had to create another frame for those. Tricky animators, I saw what you did there...

So I had 6 frames per panel, and 6 panels per comic, so there was a maximum of 36 layers in GIMP to animate.

This time, the comic was indexed (because, as a GIF, it had to be) but not Dithered; since most of the comic has plain/solid colors (no gradients), this time it looks better (you can notice banding in the background towers, though)

Anyway, the rest of the vectors I created for this comic are:
"Twilight Sparkle Windy Mane Vector"
"Spike is not Amused"
"Windy Canterlot Background"
"Working Fan (Anemometer)"

The GIF should play well in most browsers, but if it doesn't, tell me, please.

Vectors created in Inkscape and animation in GIMP.

Again, feel free to correct my grammar, syntax, etc.

Whoa! I made a silly little video using your Twilight Sparkle Windy Mane Vector and I didn't know at all about this comic! www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNtWP8…

Wow, that flowing hair animation is pretty good. And it DID seem a bit too windy in that scene

It did strike me as being a little excessively windy up there. :D
