Filly Twilight Sparkle... thing by RizCifra Filly Twilight Sparkle... thing by RizCifra
[EDIT 07/02/14]  Updating the file since I realized I never properly did that here, and I feel bad about how the other one looked considering I'm using it as an example for commissions.  Mostly some colour changes and got rid of the letterboxing.  This ones a little jerkier than the other, but mainly because it's also a little longer.  Now it's the 20-second clip without the missing parts in between.  Still looks a bit off, though.  Sorry =/

Original Tumblr post and description:…

I wasn't going to upload this here, but I've still been getting a few messages about it, so here it is (This one's actually a little different than the one I submitted to my Tumblr account and a little lower quality unfortunately). I apologize if you've already seen this multiple times!

It's just a silly little unfinished thing I was making a few months ago and then stopped. This part of the sequence was mostly in a couple of weeks. I'm likely not going to finish the project anymore, so I guess it wouldn't hurt to upload a little clip. This isn't everything I did get to finish, but I'm a little reluctant to include more on the off chance that I do end up trying to finish it one day. Also, the rest looks completely horrible (Yes, even worse than this does).

Erm... It kind of jumps at times and moves a bit fast/slow at times. Photoshop would only let me import 500 frames max on this (and even then, it crashes), so a good chunk of the frames got cut out. Sorry about that.

Sorry for the absence. I've been busy getting some things ready for Anime Expo this coming weekend.

And no, I didn't intend for this to look so anime-ish. It's apparently just how I draw ponies. Well, it's the easiest way for me to draw them. =\

KimberlyTheHedgie Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
It's easy, just use another animated gif as the preview.
1CrystalWolfie Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
tried that, it wouldn't work sadly
squidpark Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
you actually have to resize the gif to a smaller version!
1CrystalWolfie Featured By Owner Edited Jun 16, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist

edit: oh now it is~
1CrystalWolfie Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist

KimberlyTheHedgie Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Hm? Well, I think you have to do something else to make it work...
1CrystalWolfie Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
any suggestions?
Mutant-Girl013 Featured By Owner May 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wish i could animate stuff is it hard??
xCharminglyCrimsonx Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Animating is VERY hard if you do it like I do(which is draw multiple pictures with my art program and smush them together). Its slightly easier if you have an animation program like flash.
Th3iPoDM0N Featured By Owner May 11, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Super awesome, and well animated. Nice job!
Vezley Featured By Owner May 11, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Geez so well made!
Hexedecimal Featured By Owner Edited Apr 24, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
The animation style reminds me of "The Snowman", which I like a lot!
Best of luck with this project and I look forward on seeing the completed product! =)
DoTheDinosaur24 Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
That is amazing. How you potrayed Twi's feelings, the page she was on in the book and what it talked about, if the show was in this style I'd watch it like every day lol.
Maldrete Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2015
This is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen!

Wow, I love the graphics. It looks really good. It almost looks like Japanese anime. I wish the show looked like this.  =)

This reminds me of the old G3 MLP movies. Wonderful!
TheGodSquadAlphaTeam Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I like the slightly lower quality. It looks like she's remembering this.
KakaSakuObessive Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
I'd love for someone to do an entire 12-minute animation in this style.  Hell, I'd love for the entire SERIES to be animated like this.

they're not really needed
if sound was to be added, then only background music..
KingJion Featured By Owner Edited Jun 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Sorry. I was quoting Rarity. I meant it's so
amazing that words can't describe it.
(I'm still looking for where my jaw dropped off.)

Wasn't this posted on equestria daily somewhere? I can't seem to find the post.
Raddjuret Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2014
Totally love your shading and colours.
I suppose that some theoretical (MLP: The movie) might be done in such style and quality.
Great footage!
I'm looking forward your new animations.

How many thousand dollars would it take to commission an animation for this?…
Cyclone-Dusk Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2014  Student Digital Artist
My heart explodes with pure joy every time I watch this. 

It breaks my heart to know it's not going to be anything more than just this. 

Thank you for at least what we can see here...
