Watching the skies is a pastime that is hardly dampened by explicit season. Viewing conditions might be somewhat affected, but if it's clear to romp around in the snow, it's clear to stargaze. That which lies in the aether remains a fairly constant source of inspiration and study - not least because much of it isn't under discrete pony control (sun and moon notably excepted). That's how it seems, anyway.
Some kind of astral pony-like creature with comet control like a windingo's cold would just be an old pony's tale. Right?

Pony needs help with pony's time reversal experiment
>you'll never spend the night mapping the night sky with Twilight
I don't get it
it looks like someone have paid 50 dollars for this animation
Seeing derpy makes me smile every time
>Listen to Twilight excitedly talking out loud about her observations
>Feel her tug you to point out interesting constellations
Is that this anon's dad?
well she is a super cute horse
It is understandable
Look at you, gettin owned by that fat bastard, think about that for a second, the ONLY work that man can find is moderating autism con's, and he just wrecked your shit.
>What is the weirdest thing you have seen Rarifags do?
Rarifags take their ships really seriously.
Rarijack Daily, Raridash Doodles (and don't forget that massive Raridash commission), Sparity,...
It's weirder when you worship fashion horse and cannot into fashion
Just like it's weird if you're into shy horse and cannot into not being an embarrassing god damn autist in front of everyone
Are you really saying that's exclusive to Rarifags?
Are you implying you must share the interest of your favorite character in a cartoon?
Nerds just don't know how to dress. This shouldn't be surprising
That's one guy. Then again, you probably never venture out into that scary piss where the moonthread is at.
I didn't know it was either, I just thought that guy really really loved RariDash
>mfw I dreamed of a vibrantly deep purple and blue aurora right above my house that lit up all the snow last night
It has more to do with that the artist in question doesn't know much about animation in the first place, but making a quick simple rig and animation for a character seems a fair rate for 50 bucks.
unf desu senpai
Filly likes to sit on top of high buildings in town and pony watch.
She likes to make up stories about the different ponies walking around.
Mostly she just thinks that any two ponies together are fucking.
She's usually right.
Considering he's a Cassanova, is that a good thing or a bad thing.
Whats the matter, anon?
It's not that any of this was made that bothers me, anon. No. That Raridash was very cute and Rarity, being my favorite of the main 6, gets shipped with many ponies. I don't mind that either and ship her myself. What bothers me, anon, was the price paid to make these things and that someone paid that price. Surely their money was better spent on other things, wasn't it? I understand the occasional frivolity, but as a poorfag, this is rather steep.
It brought joy to A LOT of people.
A steal at $1125 if you consider a single episode of a cartoon goes by for half a million for junk and up.
that guy's mom did not love him enough
I like how the guy needed a fuckload of facial tattoos and a contact lens to make him look hard, because his giant fucking hillbilly ears would screw up anything but the most extreme shit. This is the gangbanger equivalent of sasuke cosplay.
I like how they changed her to a pegasus when the redid the scene in the finale
Fresh off the boat, from reddit, kid? heh I remember when I was just like you. Braindead. Lemme give you a tip so you can make it in this cyber sanctuary: never make jokes like that. You got no reputation here, you got no name, you got jackshit here. It's survival of the fittest and you ain't gonna survive long on 4chan by saying stupid jokes that your little hugbox cuntsucking reddit friends would upboat. None of that here. You don't upboat. You don't downboat. This ain't reddit, kid. This is 4chan. We have REAL intellectual discussion, something I don't think you're all that familiar with. You don't like it, you can hit the bricks on over to imgur, you daily show watching son of a bitch. I hope you don't tho. I hope you stay here and learn our ways. Things are different here, unlike any other place that the light of internet pop culture reaches. You can be anything here. Me ? heh, I'm a judge.. this place.... this place has a lot to offer... heh you'll see, kid . . . .that is if you can handle it...
and the award for reading comprehension goes to
It was kind of adventerous toward the end
22 minute episode limit is always our undoing when it comes to these things
It would have been way better with the increased time.
They do pretty good with what time they have usually.
Could you imagine this show with each episode at 11 minutes like AT or Star vs evil?
I don't want to imagine such a horror
We never would have gotten anywhere interesting
But it wouldn't necessarily be better
The pace would have been so fast.
>Could you imagine this show with each episode at 11 minutes like AT or Star vs evil?
It is kinda ironic but the show originally being 11 minutes long is what we owe a number of great "filler" life scenes in earlier S1.
It would make the show more episodic, tbqh. That doesn't mean they shouldn't be able to do more with the time they do have. Look at MMC, they pretty much just gave up because of time constraints
Eh, it had a few nice moments of self-awareness but I really didn't like it as a whole.
Maybe if Cadence or Shining had a character to begin with so I could actually have to consider some impact of a foal but there was nothing of the sort.
The writers need to stop pushing them on the sidelines.
>Maybe if Cadence or Shining had a character to begin with
It's been 3 seasons they've got to have SOME character
On the flip side. I hated them when they were introduced. "Brother out of nowhere! Princess out of nowhere! Lauren's vision!" But now they're two of my favourite characters. Life's strange.
They've barely had any episodes, while the writers have been busy giving a shitton to Luna.
paying 1125 dollars for this even if its the whole series isn't nothing resonable.
i saw through it and the guy didn't do anything complex to justify the price besides thee design and drawings.
with 2000, you can bake one BRONYCON PROMO, and receive it on a set date.
deadlines are nightmares for animators, because animation can end up being soo random about how much time it takes, that , you can go up to working without sleep to meet the deadline because you fear the time left wont be enough.
i don't know about animation? what was my mistake this time?
its just that the idea was simple and the comissioner wanted it like this
i just want to have work,
i don't think i know how to properly advertise about my trade, but hey i just want to make costumers satisfied with simple OCs animations or even canon characters
this is an example of what i could offer:
50 dollars, up to 3 seconds, no background, single pony.
but if you want something more, we could work it out.
heck, any weird or silly thing with fillies MLPG would like to see animated i could probably find a way to do it.
i wouldn't risk the little reputation i have just to say in the end that i can't do it.
I forgot to mention it when I normally do, so it's not in the OP, but Friends Forever #24 comes out tonight.
I'll probably be a bit late as is usual lately, so around midnight EST is when I'll start.
His montage of stuff in Twilight's room was super cute. Especially him spinning Twilight around.
Fair's fair. It's good to challenge yourself with your art; only way to learn.
That said, advertisement requires work on your part. Make more stuff for people to see, post it everywhere, and step into conversations once in a while (only as much as you're comfy doing). Keep doing what you're doing and pony on.
In the end the artist can charge as much as they wish if a person is willing to pay that much. 2000 dollars is quite little money for professionally animated one minute of animation or so.
>what was my mistake this time?
Not that anon, but my hunch is that because the character doesn't have any body movement to imply that they're actually spinning in place makes it look janky or hastily made.
The future is now!
yeah, she knows
she still likes it
if i know exactly what i need to do without needing to redo things or experiment, it takes a lot less time.
it also reduces the time i need to work on it if i already have the resources for it. (working with pre made pony puppet parts/whole)
since i had this idea on my head for quite some time, i already had on mind what to do.
most of the time, i am tempted to leave as it is if it looks good for me and don't look back.
i admit it was a little lazy to just spin it and not show him taking a step to turn
Just a little bit of bopping up and down would've made the movement look more natural. While puppet animation has its strengths when it comes down to repurposing and few other aspects, it also potentially makes the animation look that much stiffer or more sterile if you don't put some careful consideration into it.
mlp/Undertale cross over animation anyone?
i will still find myself working frame by frame moving vector points for the mane.
a dream for old traditional animators, a commonthing for nowadays tweeners.
but you can have pre made things to work with in at least every animation program, be it 2D or 3D.
i had spent months trying to make a 360 pony puppet with a different design from the show once
booping up and down is what makes the headturns look smooth on the show without needing that much effort on the 3D space, having to use only 3 to 2 different perspectives.
want to comission a gif?
That's some show cuality animation right there.
>tfw I've read the original story and this has a completely different tone.
Not to mention the characters are way different.
Loved it though
I'm sure there's worse at the office.
>frame by frame
i did this in homage to 2 brony musicians.
the counter said i took 21 straight hours working on this
the rara gif is done on 2s.
While you can work with puppets on a frame-by-frame (and you effectively need to for certain actions), but what I really meant was that you draw each frame separately or so forth. Just like you would on pen and paper.
Apologies for not making myself clearer.
Vaceslav teaches filly Quicksilver how to headbang.gif
all frames drawn with a tablet then?
i once worked like this for special effects, a small waterfall, but mostly, all my work is vector based
>"So, have you been keeping up with your New Year's resolutions? What are they? Need any help?"
Maybe our definitions differ, but frame-by-frame (or FBF) in my head translates to manually drawing each individual frame one way or another. Puppet animation (including 3d animation) is more about moving the different pieces to create the keyframes, negating the redrawing step (unless a new piece is required, or what have you).
I think to get a better grasp of animation in general you should try to make some animations by hand, as opposed to relying on your pre-existing puppets for everything.
Fuck Applejack and fuck apples.
McDonald's would rather have two Fluttershys than have one Applejack. That tells you something.
Applejack looks like she's getting high off that apple
Actually I think the top one is Suri.
I guess Hasbro liked the colors? Who decides which of the ponies to make into McDonald's toys? Is it McDonald's or Hasbro? I guess McDonald's. But then why would they stray so far as to include Suri? Was she in more than one episode?
It would have been strangely hot if her shorts were just supposed to be her black compression shorts.
Instead Dash looks like ridiculous.
She's overdressed above the waist now. They should have taken her jacket off too.
Were they going to model her shorts and the skirt and just decided "fuck it, that's too expensive"? Because the others have skirts.
I was thinking the exact same thing. That's unmistakably a Costanza face.
Applejack's sidebangs are also really cute and frame her face nice. Regular AJ should wear her hair like that too.
Those are all adorable.
But I'm glad they didn't go with that kind of design for the movies. Their heads are already freakishly oversized as is.
I like to pretend that when some of the toys are clearly better designed or had more thought put into them it's a sign of who the designer's favorite pony was.
Or maybe the order in which they designed them.
They started with Applejack early for once, got her perfect, even managed to fit the hat into the budget, then the last one was clearly Rainbow Dash because they couldn't be asked to finish it.
From another angle I don't think Twilight looks as bad.
I'd hogtie that reindeer and collect pheromones from her.
"Fluttershy, are you sure you're okay with me eating this? I mean, he was your friend."
"But we already had the funeral. It's best to move on."
"I can become a vegetarian, you know."
"Why? Anons eat meat, and we're all just meat, right?"
"...yeah, I guess. I think that other anon I was with might have problems with you saying things like that."
"Oh, I wouldn't worry about what he thinks...anymore..."
"That chili smells delicious by the way."
An actual CHRISTMAS comic, with ponies doing christmassy things.
Unlike the 2014 Christmas special, which was about cyber bullying for some fucking reason.
cyberbullying is real
filly says she got bullied online once
that mare you ponied?
was actually a stallion
It was hilarious how quickly all of Sunset Shimmers "friends" dumped her like a hot dog turd.
Of course, by the end of the comic Shimmer had come crawling back to those bitches like the idiot she is. Should have just taken the opportunity to leave behind all that highschool bullshit. She's an adult in the pony world, right? Why is she making friends with a bunch of children?
>"I'm totally voting for Benny Standard, Anon. Like, legalize that shit all the way."
I'll allow it
Anon can do a lot of things with the right motivation.
What the fuck does that even mean?
All I've heard Trump promise is to lower the minimum wage, spend a shitzillion dollars on some wall, and get even more involved fighting with ISIS over in the middle east.
I love pictures like this, I think it's something about the downward angle
Watching everyone bitch about the "illegals" is fucking hilarious.
Good! Build that wall and kick out all the mexicans! That way American citizens can work all those $2 an hour jobs and live in squalor.
yeah but the battle fillies can take them out no problem
