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!

It started a little slow, but it ended with a good feeling. Nice work.

Great piece of work! But as a short, I think it could have some more potential if it's more longer, you have a great story here. Everything else, as in the story and animation wise was pretty nice. Reminded me a lot of a Disney movie.

Ohh! I can picture what happens next :
THE SKYRIM DUDE POPS OUT OF NOWHERE AND SHOUTS FUS RO DA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (but spike is not even dragon enough to spit fire with his voice because he screams like a girl and even worse he does'nt come to fight ground to ground so dovakhin shouts dragonrend for the dragon to land and then...) AND THEN HE KILLS SPIKE AND ABSORB HIS SOUL MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Thats why i give this a 5/5 (also only someone who has actually played skyrim and finished it will actually be able to understand this)
