Just a Derpy flight cycle I made up as part of another screensaver currently in the works. Stay tuned for it, it should be up within the next week or so.

This is really cool! What do you use to animate because I'd really like an animated icon

Dude nice. I uploaded my own derpy flying cycle. How do you get the white "flicking" trail on her wings, are you using a smear?

nope, that smear that your seeing is just a single frame that has motion blur. the wings are much higher the frame before it, and that frame has blur to make up for the sudden change in distance. The motion blur itself is nothing more than curved lines that taper, so basically a custom shape that appears for only one frame.

I won't take credit for the wings though, these were provided from :iconflamingo1986:s Double Rainboom puppet rig. I merely recolored it for Derpy.

aaawww. I drew mine with no blur but made a shit ton of frames to compensate (this woulda saved me so much time)

Thanks a lot though!

I wonder if it's possible to program a screen saver to scatter desktop icons. It'd be fitting to do that with Derpy flying around on the desktop.

Yea, that would be funny. Although I imagine the coding needed to do that goes well beyond my ability at this point

Mine too.
