WARNING! Extremely Loud explosions may kill earphone users!!!

Before I do anything big with animations, I decided to start small steps by testing expressions and simple movements, which is why this is made!

Comments:

Thor and Pinkie Pie. Celestia help us! You don't want to be pounded by her four 150 mm Party Assault cannons that deal splash damage!!!

And what about dismounting your Thor to attack outside with some Cupcake Launcher? Bold and random indeed...

They're in my opinion are very compatible with each other, both broke the 4th wall, both raves and parties, both are somehow random, both sneak up on others, and they are a force to be reckoned with if you're not careful!

To be honest, I rarely use Thors in A.I. skirmishes. Usually for anti-air support, which is why I'm a bit anxious knowing that Thors are going to lose their anti-air capability in Heart of the Swarm...

Note: Too bad Pinkie doesn't have any Arnie style of lines. That would be just beyond epic!

Animation:

There are 12 active animations if Pinkie is clicked, and 5 idle animation when she's not being clicked. The unit panel is now more detailed with an added bonus when you scroll over them ;)

Responses are taken directly from MLP Cartoons

Next on the list would be BattleCruiser Rarity. Also, I wish to ask, is Twi better as a Ghost or a Science Vessel? I mean, she's one powerful pony when it comes to magic (psionic) which is why she fits as a ghost. On the other hand, she's also very scientific, hence the Science Vessel choice. Which one???

:iconcavejohnsonplz::iconsaysplz:I actually find it quite intriguing that Ponies do use their portal gun for actual travel instead of the usual pranks or shenanigans! Oh, and note to viewers, we Aperture Science are the ones inducing that thunderstorm; just another test that give rise to intriguing results!

---------------------------------------------------------

One thing... Gave.It.My.Best... This is actually the first in which I threw almost everything that I know into the animation; all I want is just perfection... :icontwilightcrazyplz: But it seems that I fall short of it. Again... :iconepicfacepalm-plz:

This is also to test whether I'm comfortable if I am to be thrown off my comfort zone of humour and try a more serious type; in preparation of a future series that I'm planning. You guys give me the score.

Speaking of which, Feedback and/or critique is most welcome. And please don't hold back, if you think I deserve some scolding and constructive criticism, go hard on me.

Can't believe I've got to 6; which is the penultimate installment in the TWP series. After this, I'll have to work on something else (can't tell you, let's just say something with a certain cyan pegasus) before resuming on the final episode which will center on Twilight's revenge and some Rarity action :iconpsychotwilightclap:

Comments:

I'm addicted to Starcraft II...

Played AI Skirmish (still medium, mind you, I'm still new) and decided to main the Terrans. I turtle a lot, a bad habit brought forward from me playing C&C Generals ^^;

Of the Terran Units, my favourite's gotta be the Banshee, followed by the Hellions (both I use as Supply Raiders) and the Siege Tanks (for defence). Well, looks like I put too much focus on air power everytime I play that game (air power freak). Need to try other tactics.

One thing I really love about Blizzard's RTSs is the unit portraits as well as the units "pissed off speech" when you click on them one too many times. Which is why I'm inspired to try to cross MLP and Starcraft, also to test my pony (and to that, other complex stuff) animating skills. I still suck at this ^^;


Animation:

There are 9 unique response that Rainbow will give is she is clicked, ranging from normal Aw Yeahs, to angry responses. Left idle, Rainbow will perform 4 unique idle animation ranging from normal scanning to engaging the Banshee's cloak.

Responses are taken directly from MLP Cartoons (at first, i planned to do the voices myself to give the starcraft feel, until I realise that I am a man with a baritone voice :( Consarn growing up... )


Well I think this is good enough, I might make the next one with Applejack as a Hellion :) Or Big Mac as Siege Tank? One question though, does Twilight need to be put as a Protoss High Templar or a Terran Ghost? (Psionic)

Comments:

Cattlebruiser BB Spirit of Harmony operational! Looks like AJ won't be to happy with her cattle getting bruised by Rarity ^^;

Rarely use battlecruisers by the way, prefer vikings and banshee as combined air cavalry. But I found the real Battlecruiser admiral to be especially hilarious and lovable! (We're going down! Stay with the ship I'm out!)

A little advice from Admiral Ackbar: Watch out for traps!

Animation:

There are 11 active animations if Rarity is clicked, and 5 idle animation when she's not being clicked. Like Fluttershy, her idle changes according to her mood.

Quite possibly the most difficult to organise (in terms of layering that is), took me quite a while to get this done...

To wrap up the Mane 6, Twilight Sparkle is next on the list. After some consideration, and of course advice from you guys, I've decided to make her a Ghost, especially due to her quotes (decloaks, HI GURLZ!!!). Its a really tough decision, thank you for all of your kindest suggestions :D We need an infantry unit anyways.

(Better quality)

--------------------------------------------------

What Does a Hero Truly Need?
For our loyal courier Derpy Hooves, I guess Donut Joe the Shopkeeper successfully convinced her to purchase a couple of Divine Rapiers (In case of you who don't get the reference, +300 damage item that drops on death) :D

College has been busy, I've been unable to make animation at the pace I'm used to make it ^^; But here is one of them, My Little Pony and Dota 2 crossed, based on the Dota 2 Gamescom Trailer with me taking liberties with the heroes being featured.

First contact with Warcraft 3 Dota a year ago, love it. And then Dota 2 comes out. So yeah, I guess I've been wasting a few hours playing the game. I suck playing carries, so I usually go support, initiators or gankers. 3 guesses on who purchased the courier and wards almost every game :D

The heroes / characters and ponies used are as follows, in order of appearance
-Donut Joe as Shopkeeper
-Derpy Hooves as Flying Courier
-Rarity as Sniper
-Spike as Dragon Knight
-Big Macintosh as Earthshaker
-Applejack as Windrunner
-Rainbow Dash as Storm Spirit
-Trixie as Lina the Slayer
-Twilight Sparkle as Rubick the Grand Magus
-Starswirl the Bearded as Invoker
-Philomeena as Phoenix (As of time of the release of this animation, still not released on dota 2 yet; but still a favourite hero in dota 1)
-Daring Do as Batrider
-Pinkie Pie as Gyrocopter
-Luna as Luna the Moonrider
-Lyra as Lion the Demon Witch
-Fluttershy as Enchantress
-Shining Armor as Omniknight
-Cadance as Chen the Holy Knight
-Celestia as Keeper of the Light
-Discord as Chaos Knight

Oh, and a cookie to those who managed to guess the abilities being used in the animation, bonus points for guessing the items :D

Will expand on this later by making hero previews such as the Gyrocopter ones

Merry Christmas to those that celebrate it :D

Before I do anything big with animations, I decided to start small steps by testing expressions and simple movements, which is why this is made!

Comments:

Well you guys are certainly giving me all the very correct and valid reasoning of why Twi should be a Science Vessel or Ghost, I spent quite sometime figuring this one out ^^; Before I made her a Ghost that is.

Where is the "Never say Die" phrase in Twilight's Dialogue? Can't find one, that would provide as an excellent wrap up (even though she will be alive all the time anyways :XD: )

I've to be honest, never used Ghosts until today... I'm planning to try them though, they might be useful :)

So here is the one that will wrap up the Mane-6 cast :D

Animation:

There are 14 active animations if Twilight is clicked. Additionally, Twi has 7 Idle animation divided into 3 idle stances (normal: 3, cloaked: 2, insane: 2).

*rolls eyes* Had real trouble with the "CLOCK IS TICKING!" part... Never before made such faces.

Now as the Mane-6 is wrapped, I can take my rest for the momentarily being. After that, I wish to work on a different project alongside continuing with this portrait thingy, starting with... Big Mac Siege Tank, Spike Marine / Marauder or Luna Dark Templar? I guess I'll leave future choices and combination to you guys ;)

Holy Halibut, got some grammar mistake over there ^^; Will fix it up

P.S. Do you think I should re-do and update Rainbow and Applejack? I always consider these as practice, but if you guys want it, then its not a big deal for me ;)

Pinkie just came to me, she told me that Cave Johnson :iconcavejohnsonplz: wants to test their new Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device. Apparently, she applies as a test subject, and now she asks me for help in testing her ASHPD on Twilight, for which she'll be paid 60 bits. It will be split though, 30 - 30 :) Good thing she didn't get the Combustible Lemon Launcher ^^;

Well, I've been mentioning that I'll be running more practice, test animations before I even dare try a more complex one right? Well here is one of them, and like the Starcraft ones, I will make a few of these "Thinking with Portals" animation each with different characters (I'll still be continuing the Starcraft ones though!). It was quite a shock due to the transition from expressions only to full body motion, and gotta be honest, ain't too happy with this :(

So here it is, the first full motion test animation with Pinkie and Twilight as the highlight. Silent Movie? Sorry, I don't have any talent in voice acting ^^;

Next "thinking with portals" would be Derpy and her delivery service. :iconderpynoesplz:

Speaking of which, Feedback and/or critique is most welcome. And please don't hold back, if you think I deserve some scolding and constructive criticism, go hard on me.

Ideas are most welcome please!

Oh, and I would like to thank you specifically to :iconsprybug: who has given me tips back there on how to animate, really helpful especially the one about nested symbols (specifically the head) :D Oh, and of course to all of you who have kindly gave their support and motivation ;) Absolutely Posolutely Definitely Positively Thank you!

Comments:

One thing I realise about RTS (after playing Age of Empires III) is that worker units are extremely important (before that, I never did much with workers...), which applies to Starcraft II. This here is a homage to the Terran worker unit, the SCV - Space Construction Vehicle.

Speaking of worker units, this is why I love Hellions and Banshees, to raid drones and probes (in AI match)

AJ... I'm stuck between the Hellion or the SCV. But after noting her quotes, I decided to go with the SCV :)

One thing I really love about Blizzard's RTSs is the unit portraits as well as the units "pissed off speech" when you click on them one too many times. Which is why I'm inspired to try to cross MLP and Starcraft, also to test my pony (and to that, other complex stuff) animating skills. I still suck at this ^^;

Animation:

There are 11 unique response that Applejack will give if she is clicked, ranging from normal confirmations, to irritated responses. Left idle, Applejack will perform 4 unique idle animation ranging from normal scanning to playing with the SCV indoor lights. I tried to cross SC II and MLP quotes as authentic as possible, meaning that some are ripped directly from SC II wth modifications.

Responses are taken directly from MLP Cartoons (at first, i planned to do the voices myself to give the starcraft feel, until I realise that I am a man with a baritone voice :( Consarn growing up... )


Well I think this is good enough, next up is Pinkie Pie as Thor, or Fluttershy as Medivac? Well your pick :) Suggestions are also most welcome :D

:iconcavejohnsonplz::iconsaysplz:Wha... Where're those Gels?!? They've gone missing by the barrels!!!
:iconcarolineportalplz::iconsaysplz:Mr. Johnson, Rainbow Dash just ordered them; dozens of barrels of gels. I'm not sure what she's going to do with them but...
:iconcavejohnsonplz::iconsaysplz:Hahahahaha! That girl, always on the move. That's what I like! Deliver the gels to her house this instant. I'd love to see what she'll be using with those! Perhaps we can even see a Land Based Sonic Rainboom!

This one is aimed to practice more on fast paced animation as well as hair dynamics. I don't know if I got them right, but let's see about that...

By the way, I need to hire a repairman after Twilight broke my laptop screen... Those things cost quite a fortune you know?!?

Speaking of which, Feedback and/or critique is most welcome. And please don't hold back, if you think I deserve some scolding and constructive criticism, go hard on me.

Once again, I wish to give credit to :iconsprybug: who had taught me all the newer techniques that allow me to create better animations (not to mention easier too!) And of course all of you guys who have kindly gave me feedback and critiques; it goes a lot into improving!

Next up on the list would be most likely the Alicorn sisters as they try to outwit each other and lock themselves in a deadly game of Portal Combat. Featuring Pony Cave Johnson!

Comments:
Argh crikey... To be honest, me ain't being so happy with the end result, but its far better than the original plan of Fluttershy blowing Zergs up with a souped up Medivac ^^;

And consarn the medivac pilot's armour!!! Quite a pain, doesn't really made her look pony like and more humanoid, and hard to animate... I've tried my best to make her seem to be on her 4 feet though, except it doesn't really work.

Speaking of the medivac, I have to say that the SC II pilot personality is quite the jerk, which made her incompatible with Fluttershy. Don't really think about that, put her up anyway using her going ballistic at one part ;)

No Zergling, Mutalisks, Hydralisks and Marines are harmed in the making of this animation *bricked for telling blatant lies*

Animation:

There are 12 unique response that Fluttershy will give is she is clicked, ranging from normal "squee", to enraged responses. Left idle, Fluttershy will perform 5 unique idle animation which is different according to her stance. You might notice that after she got angry, her idle animation switches to a threatening posture.

By the way, the unit panel is an added bonus (you'll see as she turns on the healing beam)

Responses are taken directly from MLP Cartoons


Speaking of which, I do enjoy making these portraits, but I think its time for a radical leap forward and try something bigger. Not that I will stop making these though, its a very useful practice, and I still have Pinkie Pie Thor and Big Mac Siege Tank to go. Uhhh, what about a Luna Dark Templar anypony?
