Animation Practice - 01 - Twilight Blinking by Somepony Animation Practice - 01 - Twilight Blinking by Somepony
Well, here it is, my inevitable first foray into animation. It's something I was planning to do since I decided to move my tumblr work to Flash instead of Photoshop.

Not a bad first attempt, if I do say so myself. It's a bit lacking, but ambition is success's mortal enemy, so it's best if I just start small, complete a few animations like that before moving on to more complex things (instead of just starting at the stuff I really want to do, and getting frustrated and giving up). I pretty much dreamed this up last night, spent about half an hour on the rough, then spent about 4 hours collectively on a three second animation. It makes me respect the fan/real animators out there so much more.

I want to thank the Double Rainboom Crew, and namely *Flamingo1986 for all their hard work, and their release of these really useful Pony Puppets (I could have used my own, but theirs are much more feature rich, and compatible, whereas I still have a little bit to go before reaching that level. Without the hard work of all these guys, I probably wouldn't have been interested at looking into Flash in the first place.

Tell me what you think!

Also, I am aware of the randomly appearing White Dots, they're artifacts of the puppet which I can't get to not-render.

What is that white shape floating behind her as she turns her head?

Is it just me or is her tail quite big?
The animation is damn good though!

Pretty darn good! If I had one critique it would be that she seems a bit robotic. It needs a little bit of bounce, if you know what I mean. Other than that, it looks great!

Actually no, this is only very recent, the reason why the next page is taking so long is because I've taken a step back, and am having a small break with it. I feel it's better to break now, and come back to it willingly than to force it and just not want to do it altogether. Believe me, I want to get it done just as much as you want to read it! :P

i understand, we need to have a clear mind and not force the creativity. It needs time and patience, which you, my friend, has the will to do so. ;D
