Some of you may have noticed the Easter Egg in my latest animation, C. Crashing a Wedding, in which I sneaked Derpy Hooves as one of the horses pulling the Cyclops's carriage. Well, now, after two months of animating, I have finished my full-length flash movie featuring her.

Derpy Cardcaptor, as the title suggests, is a parody of the japanese Cardcaptor Sakura opening theme, featuring the background pony from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

I know some of you may hate it just because it's about an anime, or ponies, or both. I understand. The only reason I submit this here is because I hope I'll get at least a few reviews that are actually helpful and tell me what I did right about the art/animation itself, and how to improve, instead of just ranting about how much they hate the show it is about.

So now dim the lights and enjoy the movie!

Hard to Top

First off, Congratulations on your EQUESTRIA DAILY entry.

Now, if you are into the whole BRONY fancommunity, you'll very likely that this short flash is one of a kind.

You see entirely new movement sets, camera angles and facial expressions likely not taken from any sort of template. Compliments on making such a fluid animation on a character that, at best, is seen mere second on ever few episodes.

The backgrounds aren't bad either, adding to the wholesome feeling of the short. And I have a short attention span so let me finish this review by saying that I enjoyed it, despite the artwork of the shown characters posessing their own quality that differs slightly from the original show. In a good way!

In opposition to anyone complain that it is "devoid of wit" I must argue that wittiness isn't really the point. It's cute; it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. That's enough for me.

Of course, this is coming from someone with a deep-set love for Cardcaptor Sakura, and a new-found appreciation for this pony phenomenon. So I found it charming to see the two combined.

You asked for some helpful feedback, and I'll see what I can do. Just keep in mind, I'm not an animator or even an artist. For the most part, I was pleasantly surprised at how fluid the animation was. The only thing that really stood as has being able to use some improvement was the line-art. This might just be a stylistic thing, but some parts look a bit choppy. Derpy's jaw at "Setsunai na" is what comes to my mind, and at the part immediately after it seems like a portion was left transparent.

All in all, great animation. Thank you for making me smile :)
