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 r.com 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!

A very sad thought, even thinking about it would make anybody cry. When your forever friend grows up, and has to leave. The music was great! The animation was kind of crappy to my opinion yet it's still great. The voicing, animation, and the cover was also great! You can actually make a series animated by your own creations based off of something! That would be great, 4.5 seems legit enough. The only thing wrong was the drawing of twilight, and when spike was flying he stayed in the same standing position till you set a different angle of view.

Good music score for the flash to convey emotion. i liked the feel of this one. though there were a few errors. such as twilight's neck. i thought it was a little to big for the body. and spike is one of those wingless dragons. but i could understand why you gave them to him. it's easier to make a goodbye scene that much more effective when trying to convey the type of heart ache you feel when a goodbye happens in real life. all in all i enjoyed this flash, just a few minor problems but totally understandable ones. i give this a 4 star rating. good job and keep it up :)
