Flamingo1986 (Zachary Rich) presents "Present Prank", a short animation starring Pinkie Pie from the hit TV series, "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic".

Howdy Everypony! ^^

Here's my very first official animation to come out of my training here at the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD). Being a fan of the new "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" series, I decided to create a puppet of Pinkie Pie (my favorite pony) in Flash and animate her in a little short.

This was originally created as a three-part assignment for my "2D Character I" class here at SCAD. The .FLA file for the puppet rig will be uploaded soon for those of you who would like to use the rig for your own pony animations. I'll also be uploading a tutorial on how to properly use it as well.

This took me 130 hours from start to finish (40 hours to build the puppet, 80 hours to animate it, and 10 hours for post-production editing).

Loved the fluency of this animation. But is it me or did that lizard not have any whites in its eyes. They looked transparent as if I could see the background through them, But that might just be me. Really don't have much else to say here apart from good job

Great work. I'm tempted to say that your work here beats the quality of the actual show (smoother, less of a "hinge" movement as body parts move, which I sometimes notice). You put a lot of work into this and it shows. Good work.
