What could possibly go wrong? by tamalesyatole What could possibly go wrong? by tamalesyatole
YAY! Animated Time-Travel Comic!

This comic references three of the most iconic (and my personal favorites) Time-Travel movies/TV-Series, namely, Back to the Future, Bill & Ted Excellent Journey and Quantum Leap.

I was a little disappointed when the episode "It's About Time" aired, because the spell Twilight used was very limited, and, in my opinion, the "Time Travel" Trope has A Lot of potential. I liked the episode, but is just that I thought it could have been better. And then the idea for this comic came up.

The most difficult part of this comic wasn't the animation, but how to make obvious what characters are portraying Twilight and Pinkie. I hope it's obvious enough for those who had seen those movies/shows.

It's still difficult for me to create facial expressions from scratch, so I used some ones I find fitting, from the #MLP-VectorClub:
●~HSLDoperator's "Pinkie Plot"
●*LilCinnamon's "Twilight Sparkle is annoyed"
●=MoongazePonies's "Pinkie Pie"
●*AlexPony's "Twilight Sitting and Arguing"
●~Pikamander2's "Twilight Sparkle at the spa"
●~90Sigma's "Twilight Sparkle" (the hourglass reflection and as a base. See below)
●*mehoep's "so what if..."
●~VladimirMacHolzraum's "Twilight Sparkle - Magic Obedience Training"
●~SirSpikensons's "Rock N Roll Pinkie" as a base for "Pinkie Playing her Air Guitar"
●~thehellbean's "Horripied" as a base for "Pinkie Doc Brown", and ~CptOfTheFriendship's "Pinkie's Watch"
●~Waranto's "Pinkie Pie - Thinking" as a base for "Pinkie 'Al' Calavicci"
●~90Sigma's "Twilight Sparkle" as a base for "Twilight McSparkle" and "Twi 'Twilight' Sparkle"
●*YellowTDash's "MLP - FiM: Uncle Orange" as a base for the "Ponified Sam Beckett"
●*MisterAibo's "Animation - Twilight's Teleportation" slightly modified, for Twilight's Magic Spell Animation
My own "Star Swirl the Bearded Wing Background"
My own "Open blank book with flat pages"


Since I've learned that massive GIF's can break havoc on some browsers, I didn't hide text in this comic. But in case you were wondering what is reading Twilight, let's just say that Twilight Gott to know how to Time Travel wink wink

Vectors created in Inkscape (if created) and composition, animation and effects in GIMP.

And since this is a GIF animation, the image is in Indexed Mode and Floyd-Steinberg Dithering in order to manage better the color loss. That's why you can see some "grain" in the picture. A 60ms delay between "magic" frames and 1000ms otherwise, and "combine" method for the animation.

Again, feel free to correct my grammar, syntax, etc. I'm still learning, so any feedback is welcome.

I have no power over the ads, so, no. But if I had, it would be really cool.
