Catch Me If You Can by DaringDashie Catch Me If You Can by DaringDashie
Edit 08/10/12 Looks like this hit EQD [link], thanks to whoever submitted it!

I was planning on having a brief break from making pony comics, then I started sketching Spitfire and she turned out looking like she was challenging somepony. A couple of rough sketches later and this one kind of wrote itself.



I really enjoyed making it cause I really took my time, and it was something a little different. I wanted to avoid showing Spitfire's cutie mark, but it would've spoiled the artwork so I ended up using the fanon one.

Spitfire in panel 5 is modified from *Kired25's Rainbow Dash Dive Bomb.

Bits and pieces of this comic have been kind of visually inspired by several things *Swomswom's MLP:Cerulean sky.FLASH (go watch, it's awesome!), *Dori-to's Sonic Rainsplash and =Foxy-Noxy's Mountainside Monologue Part 3.

This is an awesome comic you made. I can definitely see something like this happening bewteen Spitfire and Rainbow Dash, as the orange Peagusi would offer Rainbow a race to either test to see if she's Wonderbolt material and or do it as an apology for not hanging out with her at the Gala. It's clear that Spitfire handles the heatwaves and hot weather in Equestria. If you didn't come up with a name for that move I think you might like Flaming Rings. And don't look so bitter Rainbow Dash. You knew it would happen, lol. Way to go!

Time for my thoughts!

This is a really nice piece of work, the art is clean, the vectors are nice and the background details haven't been skimped at all, this is nice and looks rather cannon! (until spitfire becomes a meteorite, but we can't have everything.)

I had some minor nitpicks with this, nothing major, and not enough to detract from my initial standing, but here we go:

The first problem I had would be the facial expressions. Nothing major, ad maybe me talking from a view of personal aesthetics, but RD's face just looks scary, while Spitfires eyelids look a little too reflective.

Next was spitfires mane. We have yet to see a canon representation of her without her WB suit on, but I'm sure her mane doesn't suddenly turn into a recolored lyra style.

Next up was spitfires little meteor thing. It was certainly impressive, but it was just too plain, and spitfires normal coloration made her hard to find within it, it was really very detractive of the overall quality. Try segregating the vectors next time, either make the fire a little darker or spitfire, either or.

In the last frame, it looks like RD is being overshadowed by something, and while this may just be due to her attitude with losing, it is rather disconcerting to see her suddenly darkened after the rest of the comic, not to mention them being in cloudsdale (it seems), where they are above most objects that could cast a shadow.

All in all, this was rather a nice piece, certainly worth a chuckle, but it had some minor outstanding problems, just enough for me to rate this a 7.5/10. Please continue to improve and amaze!

(Forgive the double post, I just get really finicky over small problems)
