THERE'S LESS THAN A WEEK FOR THE THIRD SEASON!!1 CAN'T WAIT!
The armor Rainbow Dash is wearing in the "Ballad of the Crystal Ponies" is absolutely beautiful, so I wanted to draw it. Aaand l also wanted to draw Derpy. Well, their armors are not totally accurate, but who cares!
Yes, Dash is cool enough to fight with a broken sword.
The epic piece of artwork that you can see in the background is inspired by Happy Holidays by Br0ny And all the voice work is done by TheRobotButterfly! Who happened to also do voicework for a previous animation, Lyra's secret. Also, I seemed to have picked up a helper! Kaig3n has generously offered to help with vectoring, and he vectored all the furniture and walls! : D This wouldn't have gotten done without Kaig3n's help, it would have just sat on the backburner for the rest of eternity. :3
kemdnhaayt (takemyhand mixed) ^Totally not a secret code. (totally was)
I think I can hear humming... ^Also not secret riddle stuffs, nope. (hurr durr, the song has humming in it)
I hear voices from the fading shadows... (playing on the fact that it's a song.. and the lyrics: "You know that shadows always fade")
Any idea yet folks?
Minor update: we have background! Woot!
And ofcourse the complimentary trickery- Of sound and silence, echoes the hug of a larger magnitude.. (The top comment at youtube over the song was "this song is like a big hug")
Major update: Quite a lot of new stuff :3
Secret stuff? --> Lyra approves when 26 seconds fade away! (At 26 seconds in to the song, the word HAND is said for the first time.. Lyra.. Hands.. you get the point) ----------------------------------------------------
Welp, it's done. Was planning on doing the whole song.. but then my ideas ran out.. and what I came up with became repetitive.. (insert more excuses) Sorry!
Hope you like it anyway
Oh, and the size is like 3mb so give it some time to load if your connection is inferior! 3:
--- Equestria Daily! WOOP! THANK YOU!
The song is ofcourse: Take my hand - by our lovely Tara Strong!
I went ahead and gave in to a lot of comments saying that this needed sound. So I went ahead and dug through all the libraries of sound bytes I could get ahold of. I hope you enjoy it. (I added a mute button in case you don't like it)
Screensaver will still play as muted since I can't add a default setting with InstantStorm. Hope you enjoy!
So I decided to give Flash a try, I've had the software for a while so I figured it would be a good idea to try it out! It turned out ok I think, learning Flash by myself was the hardest part, even though its far from show quality, its a pretty good start! I tried to add some frames at the end so it doesn't repeat so quickly but without a pause button it kinda just goes...so I'm sorry about that.
