Pinkie explains the 4th by tamalesyatole Pinkie explains the 4th by tamalesyatole
YAY! MiniTutorial/Another Pinkie-Pie-breaking-the-4th-wall feat. Twilight Sparkle Combo!

Just to make my point clear, Pinkie "breaks the 4th wall" when she does something that acknowledges the medium she is in; a TV example could be staring at the camera, moving the camera, speaking to the "audience"; a comic example could be reacting to the title of the deviation, saying "this comic is too long", referencing the style of the artist ("being pencil drawn makes me look fat?") or, as is most known here in DeviantArt, messing with the comic borders, panels and dividing lines.

For those who don't use Inkscape, when you "Clip" something, you "Crop" it, but you can un-crop it at any time and keep the original figures. This is very useful for doing eyes and frames (as seen in the comic). A better explanation can be found HERE.

Back tho the comic, the number 4 is the key. 4th Comic, 4th panel, 4th wall...

Now, I know this comic might not be as epic or elaborated as the second or the third, but it's something I think could be useful and maybe even funny (and believe me, I really would like to make awesome comics every two weeks, but takes time just to come with a good idea).

And it was made in record time! (of course, it has no background, half of the characters are pre-made) but hey! half of the time is spent on the storyboard!

Now, the vectors used in this comic:
●!MaximillianVeers's "I'm Sorry, What?"
●~90Sigma's "Pinkie Pie" used as a base on the 4 panels, changing front legs, eyes, mouth and head inclination.
●~Kooner-cz's "Twilight : Not sure".
●~Radrium's "Do I look like I speak squirrel?".
●!THEinformant148's "Twilight Sparkle (Pinkie being random)" with modified eyes and mouth. This deviant's account has been deacivated, sadly.
This comic was made mostly in Inkscape (at least, more of it than the three previous) and GIMP.

Not "really hidden" text in this one. Maybe Meta, or breaking the 4th wall, again. And any grammatical error, please let me know ;)

And thanks to ~jjsavage, ~stickinaroundforever, ~FiMvisible and *Kopachris for the grammar corrections.

It's a term used in theatre that refers to the "wall" that separates the actors on stage from the audience.

When actors on a stage interact with their audience, or characters in a TV show or movie interact with their viewers, that's called "breaking the fourth wall".
