Pinkie Pie Puppet Sheet FINAL by FlamingoRich Pinkie Pie Puppet Sheet FINAL by FlamingoRich
Flamingo1986 (Zachary Rich) presents the parts breakdown & puppet guide for Pinkie Pie!

EDIT: (09-25-11) The finished animation can be found here: [link]

►You can download a Pinkie Pie Puppet .FLA here: [link]

Howdy everypony! :party: So after FORTY hours of work over four days, I've finally managed to complete the two Pinkie Pie rigs that I'll be using in my upcoming Pinkie Pie Animation for my 2D Character I class here at the Savannah College of Art & Design. For those of you unfamiliar with animating using nested symbols in flash, here's the short and sweet description:

ALL of those parts are nested within the two rigs to the right. They are set so that there are master symbols of each category, and when set to "single frame" in the looping option under properties - typing in any of the numbers listed below each part will make it appear. I'll be posting a video tutorial on how to use these two rigs after I've finished animating with them myself. So stay tuned for that! ^^

You can find the previous version of this puppet sheet, as well as the rough animation to my short below:


Also - for some examples of this rig in action - here are some links to my currently completed key poses:

Thank you. The eye shapes are quite different from Pinkie Pie's though... I'm not confident enough to fix them just yet...

Yeah - they took MegaUpload down - I've been working on updating the puppet with new parts, as well as creating a side, front, worm's eye, & bird's eye in addition to the existing 3Q - which is why I haven't reuploaded her. The new puppets will be released here in about 3-4 weeks.

Please Please PLEASE keep working on this. This is AMAZING. Here I was thinking I could do a simple little animation for YouTube, and you sir, deserve ALL my respects. I'm waiting on the edge of my seat for you to re-release the .fla file!

Thanks! I worked pretty hard on it. :work: I'm currently working on updating the puppet with about 200 new parts - as well as a Side and Front rig. After all of those are done - I'll reupload the entire package at once. :)

thank you. i do have one question, how do you animate the hind legs? im haveing a time trying to figure out how to move the legs along with flanks.
Reply
:iconflamingorich:
FlamingoRich Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012  Professional Filmographer
The hind legs are animated using the sub-selection tool and moving the points around - OR - selecting them and skewing/distorting them with the transformation tool.

Alright thanks. I heard something about useing shape tweens, the biggest problem for me though is makeing them look right and makeing their body bounce up and down accordingly
Reply
:iconflamingorich:
FlamingoRich Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Don't use shape tweens unless you're doing a slow motion movement and don't feel like in-betweening every single frame. The show rarely uses them and they never seem to look right.
Reply
:iconorcbrother:
Orcbrother Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012
huh... so you just transform for each frame as you need?

That's really great to hear. I hope it'll help me to understand flash a little bit more. I'm quite a noob with flash and drawing in general.

Thank you for sharing =)
