What is "A True True Friend" ?The “A True True Friend” animation is complete 3D modeled and animated recreation of the song segment in the Season 3 finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Animation - Nate Borman Nutrafin
Environments - Lucas Sabatka discopears
The main goal was to bring original 2D animation even further to life by interpreting and creating all the scenes in 3D while trying not to deviate from the original style of the cartoon. In addition to that, the release of the assets has been constructed as a large resource of assets for all animator and artists alike to use in their own projects and work!
Check out the download pages below for more information and visuals!
The Environment Models and PropsAs the 3D artist of all the environments and props, it was my personal goal to take the different locations visited in the animation, to really analyze them and interpret how they would look as an actual explorable space. This entire project has been a huge learning experience for me so I'm sure you'll find find imperfections if you look for them, the underlying purpose of making all this was to improve!
All of the models created for this project have been released as free resources for everyone. They are available to all who use Source Filmmaker or Blender. You can download them from SFM's Steam Workshop, a manual download, or as their original .blend files. These downloads are available below and on their corresponding download page.
In this release you will find all the models that were created for the animation. Although made for Nutrafin's animation, all of the assets have been explicitly built with other uses in mind. The goal was to create all of the models to be useful to everyone and their own personal projects as well. They should work well alongside any of the models based on KP-ShadowSquirrel's pony models and Poninnahka's ports in Source Filmmaker.
BiographyHello there! My name is Lucas, I have a passion for creating 3D artwork and assets for games. I'm a self-taught artist who just recently graduated from high school. I am constantly working hard to be a better artist with the goal of becoming professional and constantly improving as an artist. Ever since I started seeing all of the awesome animations people were making with the pony models in Source Filmmaker, I wanted to contribute and be part of it by giving animators the necessary assets to create more scenes and do more than what was previously possible and available.
This project as a whole holds a very personal meaning to me as I created all of this while homeless and living out of multiple cramped motels with my family. I have started and finished this project while homeless. Living like this has never been easy and is a constant challenge for me while I've focused on school and my art. Working on mods and artwork has always allowed me to escape these troubles and give me a sense of purpose and growth. Through these conflicts is where I learned that being a 3D artist and an emerging game developer is my greatest passion and aspiration.
There is nothing more I'd rather do than dedicate my time to creating entertainment that people can enjoy or help fellow artists achieve the same. With that being said, I hope you all have fun with the content I've created. Whether you're an animator, modeler, or simply an observer.. have fun!
Personal MessageThanks so much for checking out my artwork! All of my models have been created and released for free. If you would like to help support me, please consider donating if you can. By donating you will not only help me continue creating models, but also assist me in breaking free from the homeless situation I have had to endure. Thank you!
DescriptionThe Ponyville Environments package provides all the necessary models to create your own Ponyville scenes. These assets have been built in a way that give you complete control of how you want your scene arranged and achieve whatever look you want. Included in this set are two ground models, 8 unique building models, vegetation, decoration props, background hills, and more! In addition, most major assets have been compiled twice with a mirrored version to boost your options when building scenes even further!
DescriptionThe Fluttershy's Cottage package includes a completely modeled interior of the cottage and a wide arrangement of props. The model includes three rooms: the living room, kitchen, and bedroom. All of the furniture items, small props, and decor are individual items. This allows you to arrange items in the house in any way that you want. Each room has their own set of props to populate it and bring it to life. In addition, appropriate models have been compiled with bodygroups (SFM) to further provide control if needed.
DescriptionThis package includes all of the models needed to create your own Sweet Apple Acres scene builds. Similar to the Ponyville set, this one is open ended gives you full creative control to build it however you want. Included is the barn model with interior, scene specific props, trees, and a wide range of various hill models. As seen in the animation, this scene can easily be transformed to a damaged, dead, and underkept state. All appropriate hill models have a skin to make the grass brown and a bodygroup to make the small trees appear dead. More inside!
DescriptionCarousel Boutique has been accurately modeled with all its iconic features and its own arrangement of props and decor. The props will allow you to build the scene however you want, just like Fluttershy's cottage. The main interior and showroom is present with a small back area. In this package you will find the modeled interior, furniture props, mannequins, dress props, a fully rigged sewing machine, and much more!
DescriptionThis package is the simplest of the bunch, all of the odds and ends made for the animation that don't quite fit into the sets above. In here you will find any and all models and props that were seen in the video. Such models include the small set of marching band items, Pinkie's disguise glasses, the chest that contains the Elements of Harmony, and more.
