The illustration is very straight forward, easy to see, and understand (even without the text to aid it). The artist definitely captures the feel of original cartoon with all the important aspects of the characters. But more so than considering it as a fan art piece featuring cute pictures of animals doing something, one must also consider its literary merits. The story itself isn't entirely new, but rather a traditional tale in modern society, as we all put in a great deal of diligence for those we love, especially on days set aside to honor those individuals.

The only flaws with this innocently simple piece are minor line errors and unused text boxes that were never removed. All-in-all, a wonderful, simple piece, although I would have recommended it be done in a comic page style, rather than vertical strip.

The devious plan of the child that cares for the one that takes care of them, always for mom. Found this comic quite enduring as I have grown into quite the devious little planner myself. Leaving out circumstances, I don't have to worry about money, yet that doesn't speak for everyone out there, and what speaks to everyone is finding that quintessential "perfect gift" for our moms.

Vision: The comic has great insight as we are taken on an innocent shopping trip that gives Angel the perfect idea for his "mother" whom takes care of him. All of it unfolds as General Angel Bunny, commander supreme takes hold and leads the charge of the other animals. The comic comes together quite nicely as it ends with a tearfully happy Fluttershy thankful for the companions she has, ones that care for her in return just as much as she cares for them.

Originality: I'm fond of the piece picking the usually problematic bunny of representing the entity that leads the charge. His personality is represented quite well during the scene where he is dressed in uniform, commanding the animals as to what their respective roles are to assist in the amassing of funds to purchase the object they want to present to one they love.

The Bit coin progress bar was also a great touch to help work as an indicator of progress to the animal's goal, and as a scene breaker.

Technique: There were a few instances where it seems the technique of the piece switched up, but these were kept to very minimum instances, and it doesn't detract from start to finish. DJ-P0N3's / Vinyl's mane was possibly the most noticeable because it looked like a quick vector, however, again, it doesn't detract from the fluid motion of the comic and it's unique style.

Impact: Overall, I am fond of the piece and like it's progression. Reminded me of my own little ordeal when I still had to find a present for my mother. When you find that one gift, just as Angel did, you know that in your heart, your mother will love it without a doubt.

Nicely done. ;)
