Austraeoh - Slash [GIF] by argodaemon Austraeoh - Slash [GIF] by argodaemon
This is a GIF taken from my Austraeoh video. :D

About this shot:
This was one of the most technically challenging shots.  I had to show a huge city in a software that doesn't do well with that. The ground is actually a screenshot I took of a huge scenebuild I made from above, then applied that to a flat texture with bump maps. Repeat that texture about 40-50 times and you get a cheap cityscape.  Mountains were thrown in to breakup the flat line at the horizon.  The ponies are not actually falling either.  I just used changes in model scale to make things appear close or far.  Essentially, the entire shot was built to be an illusion lol.
Rainbow's backwards hair is a recolor of Daring Do's hair to match Rainbows, then hid all her body textures and turned the body around to face the other way.  So there is an invisible Daring Do in Rainbow's head. :)

There is always Daring Do in Dash's head.

Amazing work. You're the top in matter of MLP SFM animation despite you saying that being only a hobby. You can put passion into a hobby and your works shows that you have it.

Looks like the dragons they're dealing with here are actually wyverns, a kind of favorite of mine, if they were remotely real, however, it'd be far more dangerous than it actually is, but this is a fun picture set and little video, so thank you for making it!
Sincerely;
Adalack.

Nicely done. The wind in the hair is done nicely and adds so much to emphasize height and speed.

A really well done way to animate this character in an action scene like this! I truly hope you'll make much characters in more action scenes you know? Fear not, it is but a suggestion really. What I also and highly recommend is you keep doing what you ben doing.

Really, REALLY love the stylistic 'pauses' or...'poses'. very anime-esque. I really love your cinematic direction.
