Inspiration for this comic' comes from HotDiggedyDemon's "Watch out, Ashleigh" : [link]

One of my main reasons why I got so hooked up on MLP: Friendship is Magic is thanks to one of the most famous flash cartoonists, HotDiggedyDemon, for his parody series, PONY.MOV, and his Tumblr account, Ask Jappleack. His stuff is very funny, but be warned, his cartoons are NOT for young kids to see.

Anyway, I think most fans, like myself, are wondering why didn't Derpy make a cameo appearance as the mailpony in the season 3 episode, "Wonderbolts Academy." It would have fit perfectly; though I wonder where the connection between Derpy and mailpony has started.

I'm guessing the rumors about Derpy no longer making any more appearances are starting to become true. I can't understand why the creators would come up with that decision since thousands, maybe even millions, of fans like Derpy. To me, I don't see Derpy as a being offensive to me. I mean, there's been A LOT of cartoon characters who are portrayed as idiots. Examples include: Patrick Star, Stimpy, G.I.R, Fred Fredburger, Meatwad, & Caboose (Red vs. Blue). So what makes Derpy so different from the rest? Because she has crossed-eyes? Well... whatever the case may be, Derpy will still live among the hearts of MLP fans everywhere.

Artist's Note:
Sigh... okay, so several commenters were pointing this out to me on how Derpy's eyes are not so... well... derpy. So I'm writing this as an Artist's Note so that everyone can learn why her eyes are not as cross-eyed as they would like to believe. Here it goes:

Drawing the derpy eyes is tricky when she squints like that. I've studied several vectors and other reference to get a general idea on how her eyes would look when she squints like that. Originally she wasn't going to have derpy eyes because of that squinted expression, but I've decided to try to adjusted them a bit before submitting this comic. Has anyone else noticed the difference in the light reflecting off of each eye? They're not properly aligned. That is all I could do at this point. Also, I was trying to capture the same expression as Jappleack in the video listed above.

This comic is hilarious, and makes plenty of sense. She is obviously angry at the mailpony she thinks is attempting to steal her job. The colors and drawings are great, and the colors are pleasing to the eye. I like the way the background looks like the actual set of MLP: FiM and the way you did the sound effects was clever, and does not prevent the viewer from seeing any of the main subject in the picture. Great use of emotions, and the way the Stallion mailpony's eyes dilate when he sees Derpy with the baseball bat shows how truly afraid he really is.
What do you think?

I love how you've done the comic, the line art smooth and the colors fluid. Although some proportions are slightly off, you did amazing with the stallion's idle pose to moving pose. Other than that... there is one thing I must say.

Crossed :D
Okay, now that we have that out of the way... another thing I noticed was the out line on the bat. It seemed to pop out a bit too much as compared to the other much softer outlines and colors, yet in the lower panel you used a lighter color which still didn't seem to flow properly with the panel. It's just a matter of color picking, so not a big deal. Otherwise, most of your outlines popped in the right places and added very well to the picture.

As for the shading on the panel with Derpy tapping the bat in the first scene, you may want to darken it a lot more. Almost as if it were to give a feeling of foreboding- because to have the same light and painterly colors simply reduces the amount of threat that there is.

Derpy's lower body also appears to be rather high... I know that she is a pony, but she proportionally should have a longer torso.

Other than that, it came out perfectly. Well done.

Looks like the mail pony is slapping Derpy on the butt... which fits in well with Crowne Prince's video of that exact same scene.

There are three things you never mess with:
1. Is Derpy's daughter, Dinky.
2. Derpy's muffins.
3. Derpy's job.

You have been warned!
