:star::star::star::star::star-half: Impact

This is very good, as the other critique said. I downloaded the puppet but even if it lookes almost perfect, there are more things to be said:
Vision: the lip sync looks good from three quarters and profile, but the front one has little issues ( i.e. the chin is too pointy, so are the corners or the mouth),
the highlights are okay, but something seems to be missing, or it may just be me.
But still, i give this one a 3.

Originality: well, nobody tried to make some animation bases for a fan-made episode..right? This is original, just like the twilight sparkle puppet. I give it a 5

Tehnique: The tehnique is very accurate, the colors are perfect, and the mane/tail animations seen to be taken from the show! This has a 5 from me

Impact: This does have impact since you can use it for whatever you want. i give it a 4.5.

But it's very good and simple, for animator starters, or anybody else. Good job!
