EDIT: Am I seeing things? FRONT PAGE?! And an award for daily 2nd place?! A big thank you to whoever was behind making this decision! I honestly did not expect this to do so well here on NG, simply because I know there's a good few people that don't like MLP here. Needless to say, I'm shocked and yet honored to have this honor. Thank you!


After about four months of planning, writing, animating and procrastinating (mostly the last one of course, lol), here is the big My Little Pony project I've been working on, which is an animated rendition of the comic on ask-twilightsparkle.tumbl dubbed "True Friendship." Clocking in at almost five minutes (counting the credits), this is my longest animated project yet and also one of my most ambitious.

Rather than do something focused on humor or fast-paced action like most of my recent works, I wanted to make something with a story and do my best to tell it as powerfully as I could throughout the animation. Most of the dream sequence you see here was not in the comic, and was concocted by me and with a little help from the creator of the original comic.

I could go on with how I think some things in it could have turned out much better, such as when full-grown Spike is flying and some of the expressions being a little too funny for this moody animation, but I think I'll keep my mouth shut and let you watch this animation for yourself. I will say though, I'm very happy with how this turned out, especially on the writing and timing front.

I do hope you enjoy the animation! Please let me know what you think of it; I'm all ears!

silly twilight, you'll be dead by the time he's that big... or do ponies not die in the mlp universe? it is a kids show. Otherwise, I liked the thought bubble flashback and how the whole thing was a flashforward. Music was good too.

I like the animation it pulled a few tears out of my eyes and I actually liked the voices but Twilight looks a bit chubby

lol, this is a lot like the actual MLP cartoon in so many ways. Poorly animated, lacking in substance, and just all around not that great. Not to say that if MLP was the best cartoon ever, this would be good as well, because it wouldn't. It's simply not a very good animation and nothing could possibly change that.
