Comic - Scootaloo's New Pet by DaringDashie Comic - Scootaloo's New Pet by DaringDashie
Edit 26/07/12 I've made a quick change to the text to make it more readable, yes I know I should've done it 3 or 4 months ago when I first noticed it...

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

My comic debut! Originally this was going to attempt to explain a previous vector of mine. But after a bit of discussion with :iconbirdco: (thank you!) I decided to invert the concept.

:iconccwelcomedplz1::iconccwelcomedplz2: any and all feedback gratefully received!

Library background by :iconthe-smiling-pony: (with some slight modifications), I started vectoring my own version but got bored with it...

Angry Rainbow in panel 4 was based partly on this drawing by :iconidrawponiessometimes: and her vector is available here.

Bouncing Scootaloo vector also separately available.

Why is all the dialogue in this comic backwards, like it's a Japanese import or something?

Nice, but work on your speech balloon positioning. In first panel, Rainbow Dash is supposed to speak first - despite that, her balloon is on the far right, and on the same vertical level as Twilight's. Balloons should direct the viewers eye in a line, going optimally from top left to bottom right (the way we read, unless you're making a manga). So, if top left baloon was Rainbow's, middle one Twi's, and right one also Twi's (in order they speak) it would be okay.
Good thing about it is placement of Scootaloo in first panel - her presence is important, but because she's right next to speech balloon, viewer's eye is drawn to her, so you can't miss her.
It seems you wanted to make balloons close to characters to make it obvious who is speaking - but this is what tails are for. Another bonus is the fact viewer doesn't need to guess who is speaking by colour of the balloon - since balloon's tail would be pointing at that person.
For more info, refer to links at beginning.
Don't be under impression it's bad - it's really cool comic.

Thanks for that. The speech layout in this one is the worst of the four, I never got around to editing it because for me to be completely pleased with this comic I think I'd have to redraw the whole thing (and I never intended this one to get as much publicity as it has :S). My later comics do at least run more or less top to bottom text wise but its definitely something I need to work on. Though the major problem I have is lack of planning... I think I'm going to start setting down storyboards rather than keeping them in my head. Thanks again for the links :)

In the first panel, it appears as if Twilight's answer proceeds Rainbow's question. Text is read from left to right.

Ahh, thank you. While I know this first comic is a bit of a mess (both with regard to the word order and several other things) I wasn't aware of speech bubble conventions (someone else has pointed it out in the EQD comments too). I've been running with top to bottom in the latter three purely because on a monitor the whole strip will be read top to bottom. Now I'm better informed, thanks.
