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!

Touching, loving, deep, and horribly drawn... ;:) It happens. You made something pretty good though.

One mentally debilitating question... Will she even live that long?

The beauty of Friendship is Magic is deep and hard to explain, but one element of its amazing quality is the emotions that just write themselves. Powerful, spiritually intense situations are constantly set up for the fan-base to flesh out with just the slightest bit of imagination and only going slightly off-cannon to present some seriously emotional material.

This whole movie is pretty conventional in its plot; having Spike grow up and leave has been done elsewhere.

But the end, where we come to see where these images are coming from, you have to cry. You will weep every time.
