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).

It is, completely and utterly, a fan-based concept intended for free distribution for the promotion of My Little Pony.

Yuppers! It was uploaded to my deviantART and to YouTube back in September of last year. EqD also featured then as well. (And no worries - my next animation has an awesome Pinkie Pie moment.)

Definitely one of the most show-accurate animations so far. Pinkie was very in-character, and the whole thing almost felt like it could have a place in the actual show. Very nice.
