I'm definitely enjoying this sight gag. You clearly used your own art style for the character - which explains why I give you 4 stars for originality. I also applaud your originality by taking the character's personality traits and expanding on them in a new way. Given the character's habits, I can definitely see this happening (granted it were real). Your drawing techniques look pretty good. You have good attention to detail, including the nose clip. I like the subtle things in artwork. I give you 5 stars on impact because I get the message. This is clearly a deliberate (and quite funny) sight gag that pokes at Twilight's obsessive compulsive nature. This makes the piece of art all the more believable. Excellent work.
What do you think?

The moment I read that title, I got the Mulan reference.XD

Yet, the whole situation really seems to fit Twilight well. Love her freaked out, expression as well as "Swimmin' 4 Dummies" book.

C'mon Twilight, mare up.

Aww poor TS.
I dont know if you will find this interesting but there once was a scientist who read a book about swimming and then just dove right into a lake. He trusted his knowledge so much he was ready to put his life on the line to prove that he had the theory of swimming right. :)
sorry for the long story but that is what this reminds me of

I have a similar story. Back when I was 17, I was told that Muriatic Acid is a great way to clean rusty old gas tanks on motorcycles. I trusted that knowledge from my friend so much that I "dove right in" and began to clean a motorcycle gas tank with concentrated acid... And now my sense smell is almost completely gone! Ironically, I eventually became a chemistry major in college. I discovered what the term "acid" actually meant - and now I'm more aware of what industrial cleaning agents I use. The moral of the story: don't believe everything you hear!
