Trixie Vs. Discord by Evil-DeC0Y Trixie Vs. Discord by Evil-DeC0Y
Ta-Da! The Great and Powerful Trixie returns! :icontrixieclapplz:

There are a lot of firsts for me with this one, the biggest being Discord, I was surprised by difficult he was to make.

I've had this comic planned for a very long time but wasn't sure how to do most of it, and then it dawned on me that I have no idea if Trixie and/or Discord will be making an appearance on the show soon. So I wanted to make this before any thing canon might have rendered this idea unusable.

I was going to have more faces and catagories on the "scheme" panel, there were even some I took away after already making them, but I ran out of space so I thought I'd include some here in the description:

Doughnuts: Spike and Donut Joe

Gourmet Desserts: Gustav the Griffon and Mulia Milds

There were also more faces in existing catagories but I removed those to.

I've got to say I came up with Discord's 4th wall breaking line after trying to come up with a way to explain how he was at one of Trixie's shows, and I thought
"This sucks, I have to come up with something not relevant to the comic at all, that will take up a panel that could be used for a joke or reaction, just so that people wont complain about it not making sense. Why don't they just stop overanalyzing things and accept that it's just a joke comic and go with it."



Tools used: Pencil, Paper, MS paint, GIMP

Here are the links to the other Trixie Vs. comics:

Also yes, I'm aware that a plot isn't an actual part of the horse anatomy, I did it for the lulz.

Edit: I added an extra M to the M.M.M.M., I forgot about the mascarpone. I also added some blush to Trixie in the last panel.

Since I already gave my personal opinion in the comments I will just talk about the art.
(Sorry for eventual grammar problems. English is not my main language and I try my best)

Technique: I gave a 5.0 for techique because your drawing looks like the one of the show. Since it is a comic based on FIM it means that the show's art is the top, anthing above that is unecessary awesomeness.
Obviously, if I simply ignore the rule above, you would not receive a 5.0, which is not fair since you are required to use this kind of art to represent a comic of the show.

Impact: The comic was very funny and I really liked how you showed that equestria's economy is heavily based on sugar. Seeing discord in trixie vs. X comic was a nice surprise, but I guess people were already expecting that, thats why I gave a -1.0 point.

Originality: The concept of the Trixie Vs. X is pretty original in my opinion (I would give a 5.0 to your first one), but since you are doing a lot of it, the comic is not that original anymore.

Vision: I am not sure if I understood what Vision is supposed to mean, so I will write about what I think it is.
Discord breaking the 4th wall is awesome, and your simple explanation of how he managed to escape what very funny. Ponies shouldn't expect logical answers from the element of chaos!
The concept of equestria's sugar based economy should also be included here, that is a fun and interesting view I haven't thought before.

Final note: I have no idea if I gave a low rate or a high rate (Based on the standards used here), this is the first critique I write in Dev.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR

You just fucking nailed it. The humor worked well, the visuals - Well they look like the real thing. As real as animated brightly colored equines can be. I´m not sure if you used vectors or drew everypony yourself, eitherway, they look well animated.
I do not really know how to judge the point "Impact" because well you just gave me a few good laughs but not nothing like a deep message to live my life after. So I think 4 stars for giving me the good time is fair enough.
So all in all,
great comic, I´d like to see more stuff like this.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room

I like the story. Good work. Art is spot on.

I think a good story could come about if, after all the magic was taken away and given back at the end of the season, if Trixie got a bit more magic than normal. And as Discord is 'not allows to cause chaos', he could make it so.

Can anybody tell me how to get rid of white pixels in paint without having to fill them in manually with the paint bucket. I'm saying this because according to the description, this person used Gimp and MS Paint. I've tried doing that technique before with scanned pictures and it's a pain. Can anyone tell me about any techniques I could use?
