Howdy Everypony! ^^

Here's the test animation for my upcoming "Pinkie Pie" short that I'm doing for my 2D Character I class here at SCAD. This is in no way the final aesthetic look (that end result will look exactly like she does in the show) but this is the final timing and poses.

What I plan to do from here is rig a Pinkie Pie puppet in flash and pose it to match the animation from this rough test. That being said - I would LOVE a good critique from anyone who knows a thing or two about animation (or about how Pinkie Pie would act character-wise). If there are any mistakes in here, then I need to know about them before I move onto to the final stage.

This took me about 10 hours from start to finish - and I still plan to add more to it SFX-wise (confetti, sound, a surprise inside the present, Luna popping her head in at the end to giggle, etc.) so stay tuned! ^^

EDIT: (08-10-11) The finished model sheet for this puppet can be found here:

Hey Flamingo! I'm BAA-AAACK!
Okay, not much to say apart from it's a cute animation.
I would love to see the full model in colour, but that's probably a lot to demand. And the only problem is that Pinkie Pie wouldn't be knocked out that long. Within two seconds she'll be glomping the present again.

:iconflamingorich:
FlamingoRich Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Well lucky for you I just posted the key poses in all their "full model in colour" glory! And I agree on the knock-out being out of character for her - but I figured that without it I wouldn't be able to end the animation in a fitting way. :P

:iconmeaninglessartist:
MeaninglessArtist Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I saw that! That was epic.
True, true, maybe you could end it with her opening it and a boxing glove pops out and knocks her out (fully this time) and Trollestia comes on saying 'U MAD?!'
TROLOLOLOL
Well, that was what I was expecting, in a way...
Reply
:iconflamingorich:
FlamingoRich Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2011  Professional Filmographer
I, quite literally, considered having a Trollestia appear (or a Trolluna?) but I'm still not entirely certain what I'll do with the end. :P

Absolutely adorable! And you have done a fantastic job capturing Pinkie Pie's way of moving.

I already love it as is, so I cannot wait to see it when it is finalized with an appearance like that of the show.

You have serious talent. I shall be keeping a close eye on this, and look forward to any other flashes (pony related, especially) that you produce from here on out.

Thanks a lot! I've been meaning to animate these ponies for awhile now (my storybook was just my way of getting used to the art style) - plus it feels nice to draw some cute things for a change (since my storybook has more of a dark overtone to it). :D

There isn't much I can really find fault with. As previously mentioned, her "ooh" face is an example where the face looks off, but I did not mention it as this was clearly using placeholder images and this was meant to communicate her general reactions and expressions in the animation.

One thing I thought of was that in her "poofy hair" self, she might not frown at the package after having difficulty opening it, but it looked so cute I didn't want it to be any different in the final animation.

I'll mess around with some expressions during that scene and see if anything else works better - it wouldn't hurt to try! :D

Poor Pinkie Pie sits alone and dejected,
But then she receives something unexpected.
Someones brought a present just for her,
And from it's contents no wrapping will deter!
Somepony though was the target of her prank fixation,
And gave her this in retaliation.
This little box puts up quite a fight,
But I hope whats inside does bring delight.
