This might be the funniest comic I have read in my 5 hour browse of Deviantart today. I gave it a 4.5 for vision and a 5 for originality, because I haven't seen anything quite like it with regards to subject at least, and because it works really well with both the canon and the fanon. I gave the technique a 3.5. I think you could work on cleaning up your line art and making it a little smoother, but in a comic, that's not as important as how it affects the reader. And this, at a 5 for impact, because this made me laugh so hard my coworkers were giving me sideways looks. all in all, a great comic, one of the best I've read on DA.

Vision- Very well drawn. I love the almost more cartoony style of it if that makes any sense...I love how filly AJ is drawn especially, and the facial expressions are top-notch. One thing is the backgrounds are a little plain....

Originality: Very very original idea! Noone has really thought of Celestia knowing the main 6 as fillies besides Twilight! Not to mention her knowing who was which element from the beginning!

Technique: Done very well. I fine that each thing both ponies say are very in character, especially "Land sakes! You're HUUUUUUUGE!!!"

Impact: Had me laughing a little longer than I'd like to admit.

Good job!

Lol. I'm still laughing at this. A very original idea, never seen another comic dealing with their thoughts on their elements, or how the princess knew who they were. But, to the critique. This was a very cute comic, and you have comedy down well. The drawing is great, and I just love how filly Jack looks. (Dem freckles XD) Celestia looks great, and the flashback part of AJ reacting to her, well, larger than normal size is very cute and funny. "Land sakes! You're Huuuuuuuuge!" Rotflmao keep up the good work, I'll have to keep an eye out for more of your comics.

Doin' this step by step:

~Artwork and technique: you did a great job on both Celestia and Applejack! It's easy to see that in the third and fourth panel it's filly AJ, though you only drew her a bit smaller and gave her round eyes. That does need some training, I assume.

~Use of colours and text: nice how you gave Celestia and AJ both different text styles. It.. 'adds' something to the comic. Sort of a final touch.
The colours are great, the background colours fit perfectly with the comic and hay, you even got the colours of Celestia's mane right!
Only thing I can think of that could-have-been-better are the backgrounds. It's kinda simple. But it also fits with the comic, so it's not a big deal.

~The story itself: very nice. This is something you don't think about every day, and Celestia+AJ-comics are rare.
The fourth panel really made me laugh out loud, it's also something I imagine Applejack doing in the show.
The way you made AJ speak is also quite fitting. "Land sakes! You're HUUUUUUGE!"

I'd say a 5/5, really. It's been a while since I saw a comic this awesome.

I appreciate the review!

I definitely will work on backgrounds. I also thought it looked a little plain, so I'll have to make more of a conscious effort to fill up those empty spaces.

I don't understand how people get her hair WRONG. All you gotta do is just open an episode, and reference it. XD

Applejack+Celestia IS (sadly) rare, but when you look at it, there isn't enough good Applejack content out there at all. I challenge artists who read this to draw an awesome Applejack!

Thanks :D

Well, you'll be surprised. A lot of people fail at Dash's hair too. :L

Imma try to draw a nice AJ for you as soon as I get some more free time. Can't wait to try it out! :D

That is fantastically cute and just the sort of thing Applejack, with her lack of brain-to-mouth filter, would have done.

I also think that Celestia gets that a lot from foals.

You know what I just realized, AppleJack will never be her age because Celestia is thousands of years old.
