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.

Cute and funny! Especially the chew-toy squeaky noises. The only thing that could've been improved was the sound - her exclamations didn't seem to *quite* match with her actions. There wasn't a major lag or anything, but I think they could have used some tweaking.

Can we expect to see a certain other, currently-in-progress animation here on NG once it's been completed?

Good catch! The sounds are a bit off aren't they? And oh yesh - "Double Rainboom" will definitely grace Newgrounds along with deviantART and YouTube once it's ready to be released.

Not bad. It was a little short but the animation was well done and ran smoothly. Definitely did a good job on this animation.
