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).

Great animation, one of the most fluid, show-accurate MLP animations I've seen. Particularly like the tension in the stretching present scene. Pinkie is great for animation tests, simply because she's the most "bendy looney tunes" character on the show, you can do pretty much anything and it'll still look in-line in the show.

Really looking forward to the .fla rig, will be great to see the animation structure, and there are good odds that I'll make use of it and expand it into other characters.

Glad you liked it! The .FLA will be released here in about three-four weeks. It'll include a 3Q, front, back, side, worm's eye, and bird's eye puppet of Pinkie Pie, Twilight Sparkle, & Rainbow Dash.
