The Cutie Mark Story by Sintakhra The Cutie Mark Story by Sintakhra
Here is the fully compiled Cutie Mark story (at half resolution <.<)

Once again, a big thanks to the guys n girls of Tumblr and DeviantArt who provided fantastic feedback through out the process. This would not have been possible without you all.

To all 1100 DA watchers and 865 Tumlr followers on the main blog, you are all fantastic. Keep at it!

Final Panel: [link]

For those who think the comic is oddly paced, I am aware of that. Remember it wasn't designed as a comic therefore it's disjointed setting reflects this. It was designed as a series of posts for tumblr.

The ending was rushed a tad more than I would have liked, and Maybe I'll go back and revise it some day, but for now, It's a done project.

A great story, very interesting in itself. I like your creativity when developing it and how the graphed speaks highly of your abilities as a draftsman. On the issue of substance but is a much used cliche, this well done.
In regard to the funds has been a good selection I have nothing to object or suggest, so if I call a little attention is the resemblance that has this pony with Applejack.
The supporting characters nothing to say, they fulfill their function in your story so I have no more things to object.
Well until another pic, this work is to you is well

Once again english is not my first language so please be patient everypony.

Well is been a long journey for our heroine but now we got the full story watching all this time the diferent shinanigans and images of this character was intresting.

Good material but feels a little bit rushed if we talk from the point of view of the story but you already stated that this wasnt meant to for a comic, still is a great job

An amazing job very clean and neat work, the backp grounds, the characters, everything moves on the right pase making the story simle but good. Now e definition of the character as young and adult is very well stablish and the proportions are are just on the spot.

S my final word is that over all a great job with good detail like you marked it before feels a little bit rushed but that would be the only problemi could find

Good job

I'm a filly and i don't have my cutie mark :(
that doesnt explain the lightning bolt

Lightning reflect efficiency, speed. Like Rainbow Dash's cutiemark is a lightning bolt to represent speed.
but she took days to repair that ... why is she speedy then? oO
dont get me wrong. i love this backgroundpony, and im very happy you made an OC out of it. This pony needs more attention.
but i thought her CM-story would be more epic.

Time-wise it took her one night to fix the table with minimal training ^^
And the thing is, the more times people have "Epic" cutie mark stories, it detracts from the overall feeling of getting your cutie mark. If everyone's is epic, is anyone's epic?
That and I was absolutely knackered whilst writing and drawing this whilst working and, I've freely admitted this already elsewhere, It was rushed and I wanted to just get it done (it had dragged on for a few weeks).
Given time and unending inspiration and patience, I may revisit it and retcon parts, but that is in the unforeseeable future.
i dont know that many epic CM stories oO tell me some.
i know RD's is pretty epic and maybe twilights, but else?
Epic is already something like "she was struck by a lightning and survived", that would satisfy me already xD
epic is always in the eye of the viewer. if there is to much is overloaded, i dont like that ^^
"keep it simple but make everything epic" is a guideline i try to use.
I made a OC based on Mjölna or Sandy, named her Donna, and changed the CM slightly. Her destiny is to take the legacy of the Hammer, the Mjölnir her father gave to her after he died--<-- epic enough, for my taste.

thank you for answering my comment ^^ i appreciate it ^^
