I had a few minor issues with how the Wonderbolts went about portraying themselves in this episode, but overall, I still adored it I think you've done well in capturing the episode in a nutshell, by using color and shadows almost exclusively in this very unique style I love how Soarin's lost the entirety of his focus on the flags, and is instead using the pole as a means to take a moment to enjoy his delicious pie
I can't help but feel that a few specific things may have been better positioned though, such as Spitfire's tail and right wing, which to me anyway, look like they have lost potential. The positions they're in make sense, that's certainly not the issue, but I feel like that, being the foreground character, Spitfire should have a more majestic pose all around, like what Soarin has ^^
+ for random Derpy, who was anything but random and hard to find in this episode
Keep up the great work, and I plan to check out the rest of your gallery soon after!
Honestly I liked the episode and I agree that the Spitfire and Fleetfoot were wrong about what they did but I still see them as respectable ponies. Despite the lies they fed Rainbow and tossing Soarin to the side, in the end they were still fairly good, because the two both realized everything they did they felt kinda bad for it, they apologized about it took Soarin back and Spitfire even thanked Rainbow for pointing all this out and telling them off. In the end they grew as a team because of Rainbow putting them back into place. Spitfire and Fleetfoot recognized they were wrong. It doesn't exactly mean that everything they did was still okay but learned not to do it again and therefore not too bad. It seems like Fleetfoot and Spitfire learned a lesson here instead of Rainbow Dash.
