:iconcavejohnsonplz::iconsaysplz:Wha... Where're those Gels?!? They've gone missing by the barrels!!!
:iconcarolineportalplz::iconsaysplz:Mr. Johnson, Rainbow Dash just ordered them; dozens of barrels of gels. I'm not sure what she's going to do with them but...
:iconcavejohnsonplz::iconsaysplz:Hahahahaha! That girl, always on the move. That's what I like! Deliver the gels to her house this instant. I'd love to see what she'll be using with those! Perhaps we can even see a Land Based Sonic Rainboom!

This one is aimed to practice more on fast paced animation as well as hair dynamics. I don't know if I got them right, but let's see about that...

By the way, I need to hire a repairman after Twilight broke my laptop screen... Those things cost quite a fortune you know?!?

Speaking of which, Feedback and/or critique is most welcome. And please don't hold back, if you think I deserve some scolding and constructive criticism, go hard on me.

Once again, I wish to give credit to :iconsprybug: who had taught me all the newer techniques that allow me to create better animations (not to mention easier too!) And of course all of you guys who have kindly gave me feedback and critiques; it goes a lot into improving!

Next up on the list would be most likely the Alicorn sisters as they try to outwit each other and lock themselves in a deadly game of Portal Combat. Featuring Pony Cave Johnson!

It seems fine, during i was watching it seemed so funny once i saw Twilight Sparkle.
It SCARED THE HECK OUT OF ME!!!! It looks so inappropriate very inappropriate I was to afraid to look. Twilight Sparkle Was in a wheel chair it seemed like she was gonna die.

This is so inappropiate really you dont need to read this. But who would be an Idiot to buy a Portal Gun anyways? Only dumb people like Rainbowdash should buy that. I really hope kids will not watch this it seems like they will have a bad life. So yeah its

This is a real badass-stunning animation. I could see her going fast enough to do a sonic rainboom, since I have played Portal. It makes me wonder where she got the speed-jelly(that's what I call it) because she would have to go to Aperture Laboratories to get that stuff>

There were a few minor errors, like when she crashed into her house, there looked like a couple of very small "hiccups." And there was another "error" when Twilight hit the screen(that did scare the hell out of me,though)

Other than that, It was swell. I, myself, would like to know how you did the animations and with using what program, if you don't mind.

I think this is one of the coolest pony animations I have ever seen. And Dashie's facial expressions were so accurate! And land-based Sonic Rainboom? Pure Genius! You did awesome! Also, I really think that the Twilight smashing the glass looked awesome too. It could have been a TAD bit more interesting with some of the other ponies in it, but overall it is AMAZING! The storyline was a LITTLE bit obvious when she started flying towards her home, but it was still awesome! Also, I can't wait to see the one when Twilight gets here revenge! That seemed REALLY interesting, and I am checking back daily to make sure I don't miss it. Once again, overall you did great!

Your Vision bro is tight I just absoultly love this, I like the fact that you manage to keep all the portal qualities accurate as well as the My Little Pony which is still awesome. and when Rainbow Dash made the Sonic Rainboom which was awesome and not only that you had The Music from Mario Kart's Rainbow Road which just makes it so right. I love how Twilight Sparkle just broke the 4th wall and just made it pure win. I love how the animation is so smooth and there is no hint of it being choppy, which is really good and hard to find on Deviantart. So I just wanna say good job and way to go

I loved this installment, and the "Roughness" that I wrote about in my last critique is almost completely gone, you only see the small glitches if you are looking for them now.

Again this series is awesome and I love it, RD seems like the type of pony that would want to break the sound barrier on ground level, and of course poor Twilight got the short end of that stick ......again XD

I swear one of these should be insane twilight using a portal gun to destroy all of pony kind ^^ Umm still have to write 8 more words...oh there we go <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

super well done animation! really smooth, cool, and humorous! This is probably one of the best pony flash animations I have ever seen, for a moment I thought it was official, oh well, you did great enough for me to write a critique on this, which is my first! Hey, I am looking forward to see some more animations from you!

Now time to go over the animation: The ground sonic rainboom was so awesome! I feel sorry for Twilight after being sent into the camera! Oh well yet again, you deserved this critique, feedback, and feature on EqD! congratulations!

I really liked how you tied in two of the other videos such as having Derpy delivering mail, and Twilight on the wheelchair from when Pinkie jumped onto her.

I also found it cool that you put her cutie mark on the portal gun. However I Didn't understand this, if she planned out the whole thing why would she still crash through her wall? Asides from that really enjoyed how you made it kinda realistic, being that she would have to pay for all the damage that she had caused from her crazy shenanigans. But she can easily repay the damage by winning prize money in a rodeo or two(or more).So far this is my favorite out of the series.

My 4th critique in your hilarious pony portal animations.

I had to watch a few times like with the other portal animations but this time it took me a few replays before I noticed you used Rainbow Road music from Mario Kart games. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/x/x…" width="15" height="15" alt=":XD:" title="XD"/>

You made Dashie badass looking. (like she isnt ever not badass lol)

The parts that stood out the most were poor Twilight smashing the screen, which startled me on first time I watched this rofl and other one was where Dashie slams into her house and breaks through wall. (not fourth wall, but i wish >.<) It makes me think what was the point of her breaking her own wall on house even though I laughed semi-hard.

Also I noticed that you did same procedure with Derpy Hooves like in episode 2 but it was basically skipped this time cause it was obvious that it was Dashie's time to shine <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/x/x…" width="15" height="15" alt=":XD:" title="XD"/> but where the heck did she get another portal gun since her other one was tossed in the hole she made in episode 2?

The time for reading the bill was a little too short, i had to screenshot it and read it that way. The music was fitting for each scene and it made me feel like I was watching Mario Kart pony style cause of the proper music.

Review done but as a bonus thing to mention, why is Twilight badly hurt in each episode, she's too "adorkable" (except episode 3 with apple family) and it seems strange why Dashie didn't think it through about the price for all that stuff before she got it all. Personally, even though Dashie is my favorite now, I think this is the best one its epic and badass and it had 2 themes (Portals obviously and Mario Kart) instead of one, which the others had. There will always be minor flaws but it doesnt really matter to most of us, just there to help out with improvements. Keep up epic work!

This is incredibly silly; and Rainbow Dash is a total "comedian"!

I haven't seen her doing her Sonic Rainboom on a ground before. I like how she speeds up like Sonic the Hedgehog. And Twilight has major injuries she got from being pound-grounded by Pinkie Pie and falling through a "hole" and into a mailbox <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/l/l…" width="15" height="15" alt=":lol:" title="LOL"/>

Derpy Hooves is a funny mare who deliver mail, despite her cutie mark. She's one of my favourite background ponies <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

I can't wait to see Rarity (and Sweetie Belle) doing something in the next Portal flash animation. I'll see if Twilight Sparkle is okay...

Definitely an enjoyable watch as you could see the deviousness in Rainbow Dash's mind from the beginning. The animation was very fluidic providing a smooth feel to the movie. Some movies i've seen don't have a good transition from scene to scene while this one alleviated that problem.

As for the story it seems predictable, but the part with her going off the ramp full blast into her home was funny. Truthfully I liked the part that she didn't just slam into the cloud wall, instead she crashed right through it onto her bed. Also found the ending to be enjoyable with our lovable derpy delivering some bad news to Rainbow that she owes quite a bit of...well bits for her stunts.

Well done OP and I can't wait to see your Celestia vs Luna animation. I await with great anticipation for that little number. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>
