Friendship Is... Worth Fighting For by 10art1 Friendship Is... Worth Fighting For by 10art1
I made this comic mostly as a gift to my friend :iconturbosolid: because I have been a jerk to him lately and I want to show him that his friendship isn't worthless to me. It is also for everyone else as a cautionary lesson, even though the comic's lesson seems obvious, you might not know you are hurting someone until it's too late. After I learned this lesson the hard way, I decided it was worthy of sending a letter to Princess Celestia.

I started this comic towards the end of December last year. I was going to finish it earlier but then I had a commission I had to attend to. Also I used simple backgrounds to emphasize Turbo's importance (he is our background guy).

:iconthatfeelplz: Feels man.

Let's start with vision. You definitely had a very clear vision of what you wanted this comic to be, and you did it quite nicely.
As for originality, I don't think I've ever seen such a moving comic from these two ponies. Your technique is superb. You are most certainly developing a personal and recognizable style, and I love it. The personal impact for me was quite deep. Thank you for this really.

Now that I have critiqued this artistically, I feel I need to say a few things. Our relationship has very often been a rocky one. I was the new guy, and it was completely understandable for you to hold a bit of resentment. There have been times where I wanted to stop completely and just give up, but when I heard these words from the season finale I was nearly moved to tears. "Friendship isn't always easy, but its definitely worth fighting for." These words only ring truer today. Our relationship is definitely too valuable to give up on. I'm glad that I am able to work with two awesome people doing things I enjoy. I hope I am able to do it for as long as I am able.

In conclusion [link] :D

Fall weather season, this was a very good lesson from the show. Too many friends have walked out on each other due to pride and selfishness. Artistically I like the soft shading but you still made the ponies more then recognizable from the show. I like how you made Rainbow Dash the usual proud pony, fix the relationship. It's so true that at one minute you hate your friend and the next you feel that your not worthy of them. I also like how instead of making a comic, you made one from your heart relating to a circumstance in you own life. In all this is a cute and influential comic.
