Gone Camping by TwodeePony Gone Camping by TwodeePony
EDIT: You guys want this as a screensaver? Okay: [link]
Just a note: It doesn't scale; the image isn't a vector, and it wasn't made in Flash, so this is the only way for it to look half decent as a screensaver. Sorry!

Guys, it's 3 in the morning here. This took much longer than I anticipated (note to self: animating lighting is a pain in the flank if you don't plan ahead). The Photoshop file got so big it started to lag. :P

Here's an episode I'd like to see anyway; the mane six go camping. And Spike too I guess; but I was too lazy to draw him in.

Also I really want to go camping now, or just have a barbeque. Aah, I am totally craving bbq'd sausages now. Probably not what drawing ponies should do to you... :D

And I have no idea what I'm saying anymore, or what I'm doing. I'm just gonna go to bed.

Vision: Even if someone doesn't like the comic they can comprehend the incredible amount of work put into it! It is eye candy and all the little things like applejack and pinkie's movements make it so realistic. Great job, but fluttershy looks kind of...strange. I don't know why but she just seems a little...I don't know..chunky to me? hehe
Originality: I've seen the CMC'S camping but never the main six, or the main six in a photo camping. Very original, I like how twilight's open book over their is probably instructions on how to roast the perfect marshmallow, nice touch. ( I keep noticing things the longer I look at it!
Technique: I'm not an artist myself so I sort of poker face around this area....I guess this is style, I'm not sure but i love how you branched off a little, not making the six just an exact copy of the show Itself.
Impact: Like a campfire being lit in your heart, One thing I might add just to be nit-pick-e. Rarities Hooves are where the marshmallow thing comes from, people said they look like um and I could have liked it if they where a little dark ish just for the lolz.
I have nothing more to say and thank you for providing this outstanding piece of art that has graced my eyes so generously.
What do you think?

very well done. Smooth animation with no jittering frames, great expressions to fit the moment, and each pony shows their unique character here.

the only thing I see wrong with the picture is the placement of the light from the fire in areas like the back of the broken log under Applejack instead of on the side facing the fire as well as on the backs of the ponies instead of the front side of the shading like on Fluttershy. It shouldn't be on the bottom fo the shaded rocks at all as they are point blank under the fire and light can not go around the bottom of the rocks.

Twilight, lit marshmallows get the best results. (I always let mine go ablaze so that I can get a nice smooth finish, also it's fun!)
