Do you have an awesome OC desktop pony that you think others would enjoy but don't want them to be lost to the sands of time in the giant threads of the regular desktop ponies or didn't post them because they wouldn't be included in the project? Well then post them here!

Here are a few to get you all started

Nyx -by StarStep

I knew lots of people wanted her so I made a cute one I hope you will enjoy.

>> No. 23217

This, 100%.
>> No. 23255
Eh, why not?
Sounds fun, so I might give it a try.

Applejack's backstory nuked an idea I had about a rival farm clan, but hey, OC means I still can try spriting my version of the Orange Clan.
If anything, just to sprite that animation of Big Macintosh and OC Big Washington standing by a fence, sipping juice in a King Of Hill way, aka:
...
"Yup."
...
"Mmh-Hhm-"
>> No. 23266
>>23255
That sounds hilariously awesome "eyup"

Anyway is the story like a mafia style rivalry or Hatfield–McCoy family rivalry? I think it would be great to see the apple family mafia attire.
>> No. 23273
>>23266

It's a friendly rivality, as the idea I had of an Orange clan was of a small family of orange farmers, where it's principal members were like alternate versions of Applejack's family.
Basically, they were a young mare named Triple Sec, her older brother Big Washington, her little sister Lil' Mandarine and Grandpa Thompson. Applejack and Triple Sec dueled each other to sell their goods at Ponyville plaza, while their brothers rolled their eyes and apoligized to each other for their sister's annoying and stubborn behavior before dragging them away, etc.

>> No. 23680
>>23644
She is going backwards and you only have half of the trot cycle there. Instead of having the hair bulge out in front of your character have it instead go up and down cause right now it looks like that's how the hair would react if she came to a sudden stop. Maybe put a line or two in the tail or mane to create some contrast but otherwise you are doing allright for a first attempt. Also what cutie mark are you going to give her?

Those aren't correct sprites.I assume you used MS Paint.Try matching the form of the body.To get the pixel form(the square)follow this-
Click on the paintbrush tool.Look on the bottom,the smallest is the one to use.
When you correct the sprite,I'd be happy to animate her. :)

Pic related,It's a wip of shinebrights,if you look closely on the saddle you'll see what I mean.
>> No. 23761
>>23753

Instead of giving hypocrite "advice" to others, you should try correcting your own horrible, horrible animations.

At least try to get the trotting cycle right instead of churning out the same truncated animations one after other and shoving them down other people's throats no matter how many times they tell you that they can't be used and need a lot of improvement as well.

You act as if this were a race or a popularity contest, as you always try to cut as many corners as possible so you could keep posting them as fast as you could.

Actually,I just wanted to help out.YOU aren't.I want to help them and besides,I don't post any new animations.I'm trying to fix them.Please just let me be,If there's something to change,I'll handle it.

>> No. 23821

Actually, that person is already doing something infinitely useful ~ (s)he wants to keep this project clean of useless spam and clean of ugly stuff that is of no use to anypony.

Look, I checked your posts and thanks to the desktop Ponies thread I also discovered your Deviantart page. You ~are a loud, immature nuisance who does nothing but run in circles flapping her arms around to get everypony's attention, and no matter how many times they beg to you, you ~never listen, ~you never take a second look to what you do, and of course, you ~never, ever shut up.

People posts their animations here to contribute with something good, while you only do things for your own amusement, following only your own interests and you never care if you annoy or upset others because you treat Ponychan as if were your own private playground, where everypony ~must be nice to you, and where whatever stupid thing you say, stays.

The community and the fandom do not work that way, and much less they revolve around you. The faster you change that selfish atitude of yours, the faster you "will let be", because only then you will deserve it.

Or you could just ignore me like everypony else, and watch how the hatred against you keeps piling up over and over.

Hello, you must be new around here.

"Ponyluver" began as being a thief and after she was forced to drop the stolen material, she began an endless whinning and spamming spree.
The more the people attempted to reason with her, the more she twisted their words and the more she strruggled to remain the same, expecting others to change to suit her own needs.

Next time you try to Whiteknight some one, first check out who are you trying to defend, and why people thinks that way about her.

I'm not new, I've been observing this drama for quite some time. So she was a stealing bitch: same goes for everypony at some point. Kids should get some slack.

If she's trying to turn herself around, maybeshe should be given the benefit of the doubt. Aren't we supposed to be about love and tolerance?

I've got the swimming movement done and I hope it will be acceptable... as for the tail, since she's swimming on the surface it doesn't show up much. The templates I'll include will be full body ones/underwater/antigravity so anypony can make their own sea ponies and hopefully we'll get enough to have desktops full of 'em... if I make them good enough.

The basic animation cycles for tail movement goes as it follows:

He contributed with something great for every one to use, and what is the first thing you do? Thanking him?

No, the first thing you do is COMPLAIN because he couldn't read your mind to give you exactly what you wanted.

Dear God, it IS true: every time, EVERY TIME you open your mouth, you ALWAYS do something stupid.
If you aren't even capable to resize something, you should never have tried to animate something, girl. Go play with dirt or something more fitting your intellectual level, and leave the grown ups alone, K?

I really try to avoid drama but god god, just because you hate somepony doesn't mean you have to hate their ever move and bitch about ever small detail how they decide to say and do something.

Oooor, even though I'm terrible at this, you can just work with a 2px brush in Photoshop and work with the big sprites.

Age has nothing to do with ability. I'm just stating because this, honestly, has gotten to the part where it is bothering me. I may be younger than Ponyluver, but I really don't see the point of intentionally attacking her.

That topic over with, does anypony have a complete unicorn template sprite sheet with idle/run animations?
>> No. 24300

You can just add a horn to Anonycat's templates, it's not that difficult to do.
In fact, you only need to do it once and then copy/paste the same head over and over until completing the template.
>> No. 24307
>>24289
> Age has nothing to do with ability.

Age has everything to do with artistic ~and~ social skills.
The younger you are, the less experience you have under your belt. Your patience and attention span are way smaller, and you are way, way more ignorant, hence why little kids tend to parrote out things they know nothing about to pretend having the wisdom they still lack.

Let's say you are 13. A kid 4 years younger than you is 9.
Would you take him seriously if he steps in and starts telling you to rearrange your entire self to conform to his view of what's right and what's wrong? And would you follow his "advice" just because he said so?
No, right?

Because he's just an ignorant brat who doesn't even knows where is he standing and you know he's full of it. You remember saying the same stupid things he said and now that you are older, you know how silly and ridiculous they were, that's why you don't do that anymore.
Imagine now how a person who's over 20 (and maybe older) and with considerable experience under his belt feels when a little tween starts talking about things he knows absolutely nothing about and refuses to take a "no" as an answer because he's convinced he knows what is he talking about.

In fact, as one of my teachers told me once, you should never take serously the opinion of anypony under 20 because these people are ignorant and unexperienced as hell. You will understand this once you get older, but of course, by then it will be ~your~ turn to deal with little know-it-all-know-nothing kids who demands you to listen to them because they said so.

Tl;dr: Artistic skills take years to build, the younger you are, the less accumulated practice and experience you have, is that easy.

All that's left is to individually mirror a few specific images (the ones with the bucket since it will have the wet spot on the right side only), then put together and time the animations. I may have a release tonight or tomorrow if I have no complications. (or new animation ideas)

Also a change of plans in regards to my last post,

Well, since Nod32 tends to block out DPG's site, and since a lot of people uses that finicky antivirus, the best choice would be including the templates on the program's folder.

Templates are coming along nicely. I'm working on animating them now... it's a lot harder to animate them swimming underwater/in mid-air than swimming on the surface... especially the tail. Here's an example of Lyra using the animations. As for the starter set, when I'm finished, It will have 17 Sea Ponies... and they're all Lyra and Colgate's recolors seen in the show's background + Sea Filly Lyra. I may end up bumping the number up to 23 to include the mane 6 Sea Ponies. Expect to see me make my own thread for the release.

Just because you took Rainbow Dash from Desktop Ponies and recolored her on "evil" red and dark gray doesn't means she's a new character named "ShadowDash", much less she becomes YOUR character.

Finally made progress after a terrible block. I just couldn't get some fin animations to look nice... took me 3 nights, but I'm happy enough with it for now. I started the frames for the Sea Filly Templates, so here's an example of them using Sea Filly Lyra. Yeah, its really similar to my previous animation. Also I became aware of another Lyra recolor in another thread, so the starter set number went up to 18.

Thanks for the input, you're kinda right. I'll shorten the stretching during the animation... but if you meant how fat it is, I made it that way to make the sea fillies a bit more noticeably different than the sea mares.

I just tried to thin up the tail a bit... but I just can't get it any thinner without it looking lumpy in places. I'll go with the fat tails for now. I'm not good enough at pixel art to make nice looking curly things unravel neatly. Sorry to anypony I've disappointed.
I've actually got all the hard stuff taken care of now, so it shouldn't be long now until I release the templates. To save some time, I'll release the templates + Lyra here first, then power through the recolors for the starter set, which I'll make a new thread for.

People should be capable to tell the difference right off the bat, Pierce. If they need to use a piece of software to tell Twilight and your OC apart, then you are doing it wrong, very wrong.
It's a cheap OC, very poorly made. The world isn't going to end if people doesn't like it and you don't need to post a patronizing drawing either.

Again, Twilight doesn't have to be the ONLY character who is purple, MY favorite color. Get over yourself man :/
He was based on a different character entirely. Twilight is technically the same color as an espeon and therefor unoriginal, right?
Yeesh.
The only reason YOU don't like it, is because it's purple and a unicorn and therefor a Twilight knockoff. Which isn't fair at all. Besides that, lots of people like the character. Just because YOU don't, doesn't mean they don't have to. I got the video, and images with comments to prove it.

Heck, his very first design (this image) was directly based on a character I used in the past, named Erebus. He was given a horn because characters I base on myself all have something on the forehead. Why? Because I have a scar on my forehead.

I don't like dark purple, I like pale, lavender purple. So no, I'm not going to change his color just because one guy is complaining that he dares to be the same shade as purple as Twilight.

By that logic:
Applebloom and Spitfire are rip offs of Fluttershy for being yellow.
Photofinish and Apple Cider rip off of Rainbow Dash for being baby blue
Diamond Tiara is a ripoff of Twilight for being purple

If I made him a different shade of purple then somepony will just say he's a ripoff of Berry punch.

The ponies are RAINBOW colored, and you can't copyright a single coat color when his 3 other colors are not related at ALL to Twilight. So yes, if you couldn't tell, I'm rather annoyed by your insistence on nagging at me just for the sake of it.

In the end, almost ALL the ponies that exist are cheap re-colors of a singular base with slight alterations. So. Get over it.

I'm really not trying to snap here, honest. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to type around here without somepony getting offended somehow :/
But saying a pony OC is "cheap" for being a certain color is just.. silly. And it's been pointed out to me by somepony called 'anon' more than once, usually rusing rather rude terms like "cheap" "ripoff" and "just Twilight with a different mane".

...Why am I not allowed to use my favorite color for my own pony...? Why is it bad for me to question this logic?
I'm not insulting anypony, I'm trying to step lightly, and everywhere I go, somepony called 'anon' quotes one tiny phrase from me and just goes on and on about it like it's the only thing I said. And it only happens in Desktop pony related threads, none of my other threads have EVER had this problem.

So, forgive me for being on edge after all of this, it's just really shocking to me to see people so uptight where everywhere else on ponychan seems rather loose and happy.

Now, somepony please explain this to me:

Pierce flips her lid to a person because she thought it was an old foe or something. Then a Mod proved her wrong and she apologized.
The offended Anon refused to accept the apology, so he gets banned. Meanwhile, Pierce is praised as a mature heroine and everypony jump to chew on the banned Anon.

Evidently I'm missing something here, but getting banned for not forgiving the person who flamed and accused a random Anon of something that wasn't his/her fault, makes no sense to me.

For posting those templates.

When I once tried to make my pony, I had difficulty editing the normal desktop ponies.( I dunno why, but the colors just didn't come out the way I wanted to.)
But now I can just use this. (Currently WIP. Though, I think it's gonna come out okay.)

I'm done working on the templates. I could probably make them better, but working on these are more maddening than I thought.

Sea Pony Templates -by Dirkos
http://www.mediafire.com/?2oq5gppjzkdzmgu
Now you can make your own!

Included are the following:
Templates for 'Earthsea, Unisea, and Pegasea' mares and fillies. (Ignore the oxymoronic terminology, which is descriptive only. [Earthsea and Unisea are combined into one template because the difference is a small horn.])
Sea Pony Lyra and Sea Filly Lyra for Desktop Ponies using the same style as the templates. (They were quickly put together. I'll probably make them more official for the starter set. [I also put the individual frames used for them in the template folder to use as an example.])
An extra folder that has stuff I used when making my first Sea Pony Lyra and the Templates. Just because they were there and I figured somepony might find it useful/interesting. (Also has samples for the starter set.)

I'll finish by saying that I claim no ownership to the concept of any sea ponies. The templates are free to use by anypony and any acknowledgement towards me as maker of the templates are optional.
Most importantly, have fun.
If anypony needs informative help, I'll answer any questions posted to the best of my ability.

Maybe the Mods could create a threads for requests and requests alone. Ideally, that thread should be stickied and labeled with big, bold letters to make nearly impossible to miss. Also, a solid set of rules could be made to prevent people from causing drama or using the thread as their private soapbox, etc.

Of course, that doesn't means that all requests will be fulfilled, because the few decent pixel artists that frequet this community are scarce, have their own things to worry about and will not feel confortable with the idea of a growing number of people requesting things from them all the time, but hey.

I think it would be absurd to have a general request thread. Who would be doing these requests? It takes hours to make a decent sprite and doing all that so somepony who couldnt be bothered to try making it themselves with all the tutorials available can enjoy it. Plus the maker wouldnt be getting anything out of it besides knowing they maybe made that one person happy when they could of been making some other more popular fandom or cannon sprite that would makes hundreds happy including themselves. I do enjoy seeing what others are doing with their oc's but to expect somepony else to make it for you is a bit much.
>> No. 26324
>>26321

I completely agree with the idea that a person who can't draw or animate shouldn't even try to create an OC, especially if all what they can do is recolor a premade flash template and expect praises for it. I also agree that lots of great animation templates and guides are already available for any person willing to spend a few evenings practicing and improving their OCs and themselves as well.

For that reason, the purpose of a request thread would be to contain all lazy, annoying, stupid, troublemaking people on a single thread so they don't spread out to hijack project threads with their moronic requests and self entitled demands.
Nopony says their requests will be taken seriously or if they will even be taken at all, but still, having a thread just for requests would be the perfect excuse to kick these annoying jerks out from other threads as soon they try hijacking them or attempt to cause drama because they couldn't get what they wanted.

Why not just encourage people to make the sprites themselves? Granted, it won't stop requests being posted here, especially since it's not all that obvious at first glance that people shouldn't be posting requests here, but it might get people contributing, which is something this thread is really lacking. Even if the stuff they put together isn't all that good, they people can give them constructive criticism, and help them improve.
Yes, some people would still act like jerks and stir up drama about people not doing all the work for them (Although, that is going to still happen, no matter what you do), but then you can just report them and get that sort of person out of the community.

Because they don't want to make them by themselves, or because they keep fishing for a super magical ultra-turbo "tip" that could allow them to become awesome overnight without having to do "boring" things like... GASP! practicing!

No, really. Just take a look around and you will see how that small, yet ultra noisy group of misfits keeps causing problems and upseting people everywhere they go.

>Granted, it won't stop requests being posted here, especially since it's not all that obvious at first glance that people shouldn't be posting requests here

It has been menctioned over and over that this thread is not for requests, yet these guys can't bother with reading a few posts before smashing their heads against the keyboard to beg for some strangers to go out of their way to serve them under the excuse of "Love and Tolerance"
As in, "Love them forever and ever no matter what" and "Have endless tolerance for them no matter how annoying the get"

But you have a point, and the best proof is the lone guy who posted to thank the other guy who posted some templates. Still, annoying people is annoying and as long they keep running away unleashed, they will keep causing problems just by being alive.

Hmm... Fair points. Thought it'd be worth making the suggestion though. Guess no matter what decision is made, people are going to be unhappy.
If a stickied topic is made one of my main concerns is that there will probably be people complaining about the useless thread stuck right at the top of Page 1. It'd also be pretty poor representation of the community if the first thread people see is full of something people apparently have a huge hatred of.
Allowing requests in the thread relies kind of heavily on people acting mature and not causing drama if their request doesn't get done, and I have to admit, chances of that are pretty low. Plus I have a feeling people have more of a problem with the mere presence of requests, rather than the attitudes of the requester.
Still, I guess creating a new thread helped get rid of the drama (sort-of) when people were complaining about OC's being in the normal Desktop Ponies thread, so it'd probably would work again for requests. Shouldn't be stickied though, it'd just look bad on the community IMO.

Good point, it would look awful indeed.
May I suggest a thread with a set of rules and a fair warning that not following them would result on a ban?
Something like:

- This thread is the only place where you can make requests, any requests (or veiled requests) posted outside here will result on a ban.

If you know that your words can be taken the wrong way, then it's your duty and your responsability to triple check everything you say to get sure it's not going to cause a negative reaction.
Doing whatever you want and then passively expect others to "understand you" and "not getting angry" all the time is the best way to stir up trouble and make everypony hate you forever.

Honestly, just use your common sense.

Working with a huge vector and working with a minuscule sprite are two completely different things.
The smaller it is, the more to tell the colors apart it gets, as they are all crammed up on a tiny space where they blend together.

Compare fan-made Pony Nyx with the professionaly designed Nightmare Moon/ Luna, where the colors are highly contrasting each other and never become eye straining or confusing.

The eyes look wrong. I can't put my finger on it, but the general shape (plus the glasses) doesn't looks at all like a pony eye.
The mane and the tail seems to be made of rubber that gets stretched up when the pony moves, and the direction it takes is wrong as well~ the tail goes up instead of going down, plus the mane moves as if it's scalp were just a huge wig.

Well, in the tutorial it specifically directs people to draw the tail on a specific layer, as all the layers are pre-set. Once drawn, you copy it twice and you have to stretch it to these dimensions:
W96 H106 h-3
W92 H110 h-6

The result is the stretching bounce, apparently.

The hair bothers me, yeah. The tutorial showed what to do with long haired female ponies, but never really went into shorter manes where the stretching directions completely ruin how it looks.
Are there any examples of pony sprites with a similar short mane as this that you could suggest I look at for reference?

As for the eye, it probably looks odd because it's not fully open. Based on this eye seen in the image.

As for the glasses, I originally tried to animate them bouncing on his nose, but it kept giving me a lot of issues. I might have to approach it another way, so the glasses look like an object on his nose rather than being plastered to his face.
>> No. 26687
>>26686
The tail should stretch down, your tail actually stretches up.
Or that's the impression it gives.

Regarding the eyes, I would suggest you to either open the eye or axe the glasses. Remember, FiM style is all about minimalism and readibility, but right now, you have a lot of stuff crammed on a tiny area and that's no good.

And this is just something personal: why did you put a Cutie Mark on a Blank?

Hm, when his rump lifts his tail lifts a little afterwords then sways back down and out. In the show itself, pony tails don't entirely act like regular horse tails, they bounce quite a bit. I just looked through my desktop pony folder at the bigger tails, and they do bounce upwards with the pony's legs.
It's probably the thin strands at the end of his tail that are actually messing it up, some of the grey goes outside the lines and I'll need to fix that since it looks a little choppy when it does so.

This is his very first sprite, before the glasses. I'm currently looking at various ponies with glasses, such as the mayor, to see how to animate in glasses, since he does wear them and he's practically blind without them. It would be mean to take his glasses away from him XD Twist's glasses are far too large for what he wears, so the Mayor is the closest in appearance. Seems her glasses were made smaller and kept on the same layer as her head. I'll see about reducing his glasses size then.

As for cutie mark on a Blank, I'm not sure I understand what you mean? Are you talking about my ask tumblr?
>> No. 26690
>>26688
The examples you must be talking about are about animations that use tails that wave up and down, while yours only goes up.
I don't know about your tumblr, I don't even know who are you. I just ask because if this character is supposed to be a zombie (I remember you making desktop Blanks) then it shouldn't have a cutie mark.

Regarding your sprite, I just said it looked too crammed and the animation was unnatural.
>> No. 26691
>>26690
He's not a zombie, he's a regular pony. The Blanks are somepony else's characters.
This pony is Pierce Smoulder, he's my own character.
And I do understand what you said, which is why I am now examining other pony sprites to figure out how to make the glasses look less chaotic.
He's a fairly basic pony, following the usual guidelines of an in show pony, being that he has a 2 colored mane and a singular colored body. If anything about the animation is unnatural, it was due to the directions given in the tutorial offered on the desktop ponies website, so I apologize for that. I'm still looking at other pony sprites to figure out how to fix it up.

The main issue at the moment seems to be the glasses, which makes his face look a little busy. Other than that, are there other features you feel make his sprite look busy?

I think the problem is that Nyx is a terrible character with an awful design, so whatever is created based on her is going to be plagued with problems as well.
Personally, I have problems to see her as well, mostly because of the extremely low contrast and how close the colors are from each other.

I assume you guys are familiar with the "Color Wheel?"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_wheel

Practically all of OCs (especially Sonic or Pony ones) are eyesores because they ignore the basic principle of contrast/complimentary colors, Nyx being a noteworthy case of a character donee all wrong.

I disagree. If she had a higher value she would be easier to see without straying from the original color scheme much, and I don't think, color-wise, she is a bad design.
The blue and purple are analogous, which is also an attractive color relationship like complimentary colors.
Maybe not to your tastes, but they don't break any color design rules.

This is just a hunch, but I suppose you can see them right because your monitor's bright values are set high and because your screen must be really close to your face, as in a small desk or something.

I'm one of these unfortunate sods who still use an old CRT monitor, so whenever you post OCs all I can see are some color blobs, Starly. However, when you go by the cartoon's colors I have no problem at all with the things you do.

I'll likely post the first one in about 2 hours, then the rest at the same time every following night.
Just a reminder that these Sea Ponies are ALL of Lyra+Colgate's recolors I could find on the wiki, plus 2 that aren't for whatever reason. The name of those two are probably wrong, so please correct them when they show up. I'll say so when they're posted.

I think that's the entire point, Starly.
Common sense says that you can't just copy and reuse parts of a unique character without expecting others to recognize it and associate it with the original.

>You don't have to use what I make.

Also, this rude comment equals to shrugh other person't opinion off under the excuse of "if you don't like it, don't look at it" right after having posted it on a public imageboard where everypony can see it.

Common sense, education and consideration for other people's opinion, Starly. After all, you don't want to repeat the same silly grudge you have against Anonycat just because he didn't praised you for the subpar edit you made of his own Big Macintosh sprite, eh?
Back then you used the same "if you don't like it don't use it but I love it anyways" argument to trample any different opinion than yours.

Normally I don't mind your childish behavior because you can do decent animations whenever you feel like doing them, but enough is enough.

3rd Sea Pony up is #8... Lemon Tart!
http://www.mediafire.com/?f1lox5cf58gf0h6
Lemon Tart is a Lyra recolor that seems to be based off of the color scheme of the more prominently appearing background pony, Lemon Hearts. She is another recolor that wears a saddle in most of her appearances. Lemon Tart is the pony who throws up immediately after tasting one of Apple Bloom's cupcakes in Call of the Cutie.

There's a bonus Sea Pony with Lemon Tart. A new Lyra recolor was added to the wiki named Banana Fluff, so I added her in with this one because my numbering system would be messed up if I added her to my list since it's in alphabetical order.

Anti Lyra is a Lyra recolor that uses Cloud Kicker's color scheme, making her look like a big Dinky. She shows up in Lesson Zero, and is unique for a Lyra recolor because she uses the lyre cutie mark, while all the other recolors with visible cutie marks had Sparkler's 3 diamonds.

The Desktop Ponies thread had a few cases of that, and when Anonycat posted the pony and filly templates here, the first thing people did was complain because he didn't gave them what they -exactly- wanted and they were forced to do stuff on their own.

> I may not be an artist,

Your entire case crumbled just there.
I remember you as the idiot who threw a tantrum because the Desktop Ponies weren't keen about the idea of taking requests and you tried every thing possible to go around their negative, until Desktop Pony Guy himself had to step in.
And then you twisted his words so you still could pester his team with requests because you refused to accept a no for an answer.

Dude? You are nothing but a little ball of rage and self entitlement. Take your head out of your flank, then take out the stick you have lodged up there and then ~maybe~ people would stop calling you "rude".

Yeah, you rip sounds. Big deal, anypony can replace you and nopony will tell the difference.
But creating animations? Nope, that kind of people cannot be replaced and you are miles away from them, but you always try to behave as if you were their boss or their leader, who the hell do you think you are?

Seriously, stop behaving as if you were important and especially stop behaving and if everypony were out to get you.

6th Sea Pony up is #12... Seafoam!
Also known as Sea Swirl from the new Blind Bags, I can't really call Seafoam a Colgate recolor since she has a unique cutie mark. In my opinion, she's the next most deserving pony to be a Sea Pony after Lyra, for clear reasons.

Look forward to tomorrows release.

wow lots of drama going on. I wont disallow requests totally because some are allright. But I would like for there to be

no make my whole character for me requests.

This is a thread about showing off your work, whether to make others laugh, share what others may enjoy using or display the achievement that you made a sprite or possibly a tricky animation.

Its not going to be a thread to make everyponys oc who wants one. Some requests like "I cant get my cutie mark to look like something other than a blob can somepony please help." or "my gif maker program is acting up, can somepony help make this sprite sheet I made into an animated gif." are valid requests.

Now please if somepony makes a 'make my whole character' request dont jump all over them like a few of you have tended to do. Just tell them "This is not a request thread" and if you want to be nice point them towards the guides or templates. I dont think we need anymore than one or two people telling that to the pony asking. That's my opinion on the matter.

>>27720
I agree she should of been second in line to be made. Good work. Now I may have to add a saddle and seaflower to sea pony Diamond Mint because she just isnt herself without them.
>> No. 27745
>>27742

Well, then this makes it official: Op has said this is not a request thread, so anypony coming here asking to get stuff done for them will be reported to the staff and hopefully, booted out.
Asking help to finish an almost complete, or perfect and already completed OC is fine though, but let's hope nopony tries to use semantics to twist that into an excuse to slip a full request.

Also, it's just me or some Seaponies just vanished?

I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks. I actually chose not to try because I didn't think I would be able to make a saddle look... right on a Sea Pony. And in honesty, I didn't want to work on the swimming animation frames for the saddle. The Pegasea wing fin drove me crazy, and it's just a small thing compared to a detailed saddle. I hope for your success.
Oh yeah, the pic is a sample for what to look forward to hidden in the next release. Just like the Surprise I included with Seafoam. Wink wink.

7th Sea Pony up is #17... Tutti Frutti!
http://www.mediafire.com/?t1yp68qe99xkcpy
Also/canonically named Holly Dash, Tutti Frutti was custom made by one of the animators iirc. It's hard to tell if she is a Lyra recolor or not, since in her only appearance she's running, but her running animation matches Lyra's.
Also as some might have guessed from one of my posts earlier, Sea Filly Noi is in with Tutti Frutti.
And probably more.

Colgate/TARDIE/Romana (or Colgate T. Romana) probably has the most fanon names for one of our favorites, although it seems her Blind Bag name will be revealed very soon. She shows up alot in the background. She's great. Brushie brushie.

I've almost got 20 Sea Ponies out now. They look even better swimming around together than I thought. It's also kinda funny how I was just gonna do 17... now it's looking like I'll have 30ish out when I'm done.

Credit to Dirkos for these adorable seaponies and to Starly for the regular Diamond Mint which I based the saddle off of. I think I got everything working right and I changed a few names so now you can just copy the pony.ini of hers minus the name part and add it to the other sea ponies so they can have the seabed effects too. Remember if you try this copy everything but the name in the pony.ini and then copy the seabed effect gifs into each seaponies folder and then each one will help turn your desktop into an undersea pony adventure.

9th Sea Pony up is #2... Blue Belle!
http://www.mediafire.com/?2vws7iipy2d7289
Blue Belle is a Lyra recolor, seen in the same scene as Glory. She is another recolor with a unique color scheme, somewhat similar to the old Luna, but with mane and body color reversed. Also wore a saddle.

Now that Diamond Mint's saddle is done, I may have to recolor her to Blue Belle, Glory, and Lemon Tart. If I do, they'll be included in the eventual all-in-one release that I'll get done sometime after the 17 days are over with. The .inis will be cleaned up, and I'll try to put in some interactions. At least just some of them following others.

Why hasn't anypony made her?
<-
I got tired of waiting, so I made her myself. She's currently running around my screen. I must say though, it's a decent attempt on my part since this is the first pony I ever made.

Yeah, anypony can use the Sea Ponies for whatever they want. Thanks for asking, though. I'll copypaste what I said earlier, when I released the templates.

I'll finish by saying that I claim no ownership to the concept of any sea ponies. The templates (and Sea Ponies) are free to use by anypony and any acknowledgement towards me as maker of the templates (and Sea Ponies) are optional.

Also I already have pipsqueak's trot animation basically finished. Just need to make the standing for him. Also since his tail is short Im still wondering if it needs a bounce animation?

As long this time you could refrain yourself from spamming several dumb posts on a row and manage to finish what you start instead of asking help even to breathe or "contributing" with a ton of unfinished and useless stuff, sure why not?

Also, this time remember to credit each end every of the original creators before you upload eveything on your DA page, since you have a lot of recolored ponies there but no a trace of credit to the original creatos has been given by you.

For Sea Pony Lyra and all the other Sea Pony stuff, I actually used Paint for making all the frames (it's actually the old version of Paint ported to Windows 7... the new one is weird), then use Gimp 2 to animate them (after deleting the color that's supposed to be transparent). In Gimp 2, you have the option of saving the layers as an animation when you save as GIF format.

You first have to add an alpha channel. Then, select the white with the tool that has the colors and the finger, and hit delete. You'll have to fill in some parts that also had white that were meant to be, though. (Like part of the eyes, probably)

Awesome. Thank you for embracing a culture that you obviously enjoy. From animating, to recoloring (with credit!), to making request ponies from scratch, good job. People have taken time out of their day to work on something and share it with a community whose very basis is love and tolerance.

I want to give this thread a hug, and squeeze it like a coffee press. Leave all that ground bitterness behind, everypony.

Sparkler is a commonly occurring Lyra recolor (can she really be called that?) that shows up beside Lyra in her first appearance in episode 1, and more recently competing alongside Dinky in Sisterhooves Social, as well as showing up frequently in the background in a bunch of the other episodes. She is mistaken for Seafoam a lot for whatever reason...

I was going through the wiki again (I do that a LOT) and I noticed that the Earth Pony known as Epona seems use Lyra's design. It's hard to be sure, since you only see her from behind, but expect her soon in one of the next releases.

13th Sea Pony up is #11... Rose!
http://www.mediafire.com/?78wgdei35tekneb
Rose, aka Roseluck, is one of the few background ponies that have been called out by name. It actually took me awhile to notice that she uses the same design as Lyra, minus the horn.

This is where you should thank the RNG. Since Rose came up this late, I was able to include 2 other Sea Ponies with her that would not have been possible if she came up early, since I recently finished Could Kicker's frames.
Yes, it's Daisy and Lily.

Ok so I decided to try and find all the templates that I could to help people out. Some are in psd files, others in gif format and others in sprite sheet format. If you know of any other templates throw them up or a link so they can be added.

pretty good. Only suggestion would be having the mane stay still right by the ears then having the rest of the mane bounce like you already have it doing. Excellent job on animating the pipboy. It looks good throughout the trot cycle.

The Inquisitor is the last Colgate recolor, seen in Winter Wrap Up at the same time as Jenny.

That was the last recolor of my 17 day run. I will probably stop these daily Sea Ponies and get the all in one starter set finished and polished. Since I'd be working more casually on it, it will likely take some time.

Hi, I was wondering if anypony had a Big Mac style template? I DL'ed the template files a few posts above me, but the regular sized stallion was somewhat too small for the character I wanted to make.

Okay, so I attempted to do a bit of animating, but I failed horribly. ^^; The main problem I have is the fact that these are on a transparent background, so when I animate the sprites, I wind up being able to see right through to the other frames. Does anypony know how to fix this (using GIMP)?
>> No. 28959
>>28953

Well, besides that fact that your OC looks like a Princess Luna recolor, is also that fact that GIMP's gi animator is too complex for a newcomer.

Try using this other gif animator instead: http://download.cnet.com/Microsoft-GIF-Animator/3000-18512_4-12053.html
>> No. 28964
>>28959
Well, my original idea for her had a mane and tail similar to Luna's but longer. I kinda drew Luna's mane on her without trying the first time actually. When I decided to make sprites for her, using pieces of Luna was just the easiest way to get the shape I wanted. The first standing pose was a combination of Luna mane/tail and Candy Mane body, since that one was already basically blank with hooves and horn I did myself while staring at Big Mac and Twilight. So, in a way, she is a Luna recolor, I suppose. Maybe not straight from the Luna sprite, but using major elements from it.

I tried using that GIF animator, but it made the sprites look grainy for some reason and was kinda hard for me to use. That, and the animation itself was REALLY sped up in the preview while normal speed when I saved it. I just wish I knew how to make GIMP do what I wanted... It's so much easier to use than that program...

I think I figured why it seems that way. According to Animation Shop, the original mac frames where going

'Display time [in 1/100th of a sec]: 6'

while the gif was going at

'Display time [in 1/100th of a sec]: 10'

So it's just a few frames slower. I did a comparison gif for an example

So I'm playing around with a bit of spriting. I'm working on my OC right now. I know her tail looks a bit strange, and I'm working on trying to fix that, but otherwise what do you think? Anypony more experienced know what I'm doing wrong with the tail so I can work to get that fixed? (I used the .psd's that come with Rainbow Dash as the basis for this.)

Also, Dirkos, you get this a lot but your Seaponies are awesome.
>> No. 29480
>>29476

I would change that mane and tail since right now, it looks like a cheap recolor, much like >>29408 did.

Most people (especially novices) can't understand that recoloring a premade template (or changing minuscule details, as much) doesn't turns said template into "their" characters, and neither turns them into "spriters".

If anything, the templates should be used as guides, not as an almost finished sprite that only gets a recolor and a name slapped on it.
>> No. 29493
>>29480
Unless you're just here because you want your OC to roam your desktop, and otherwise have no interest in spriting.
In which case I myself would encourage settling with, or at least starting with, template recolors.
>> No. 29506
>>29480

Huh. Out of curiosity, who does it look like a recolor of? I build the mane and tail from scratch. I looked at a bunch of other the other pony spites for reference, but emphasis on "a bunch" there; I wasn't aiming to copy one in particular.

And, no offense intended, but given that the files are right there in the program and obviously intended for use as a resource I don't see why it would be wrong for people to use them for their intended purpose. I don't know if you've looked at them yourself, but they explain in far greater detail how to build a sprite than the flattened sprite-sheet templates ever could, provided you have the Photoshop knowledge to understand them. I am currently aiming to nip problems in the bud before they become bad habits, which is why I'm looking at getting one skill at a time and asking for feedback to make sure I understand that before moving on to more complicated things. I'm not trying to claim myself a spriting genius by any means; but I'm taking baby steps to try to get better.

NO. Your intention was 100% offense intended and your pitful, patronizing rant can be easily resumed as "I am right and if you disagree with me you are a stupid, proving me right all along!"
.
No offense intended, but when people wants to "create" an OC just because, but settle for the minimal effort and then desperately try to justify themselves while dismissing any other opinion, they are ASKING to be called idiots.

Yeah, Desktop Ponies include templates. And your point is...?
I mean, have you seen the AWESOME stuff posted on the Desktop Ponies thread? They are all based on the premade templates, but unlike the abominations that can be seen ITT, their creators NEVER hide behind self-serving excuses and actually put a considerable effort on them, which is the reason they are respected -and- admired all across the web instead of being made fun of or considered as pitful attention seekers.

Besides of StarStep (A respected Desktop Ponies member) and Dirkos's awesome stuff posted here, the rest looks like concentrated flank, slapped togather on five minutes TOPS, with the only self-service purpose of having an excuse to screech "HEY GUYS! ME TOO!" and nothing else.

Twist my words, make another silly rant or sic the Mods on me, but that will not change the fact that this thread is full of lazy, paranoid hacks desperately trying to get some attention.

Posting something here means that like it or not, they will receive critics and comments, but people thinks this thread is like mommy's fridge, where everything is praised and rewarded no matter how ugly or generic it could be.

It has been like this since the first day, and it will continue being like this forever and ever, so closing this thread and leaving all of those annoying people outside sounds like the best option to go.

I wouldnt say "a cheap recolor" is the right way to describe it. Id save that term if they kept the same mane too. Im glad you are trying to learn and get better. Yeah we all usually just recolor the main body when making a new trot animation but its the extra personalizing that makes it good. I would say the hair and tail look flat to me. Its all one big flat piece. Hair usually has strands that stick out or curl or bend creating layers. I think the reason the tail looks extra weird is 1) the bend to come back down looks too high. 2) if you look at the base pony psd there are 3 tails and it doesnt look like you kept them on the correct frames. 3) Right now it looks like it is sort of rising compared to her body while at the same time her body is rising compared to the ground. At this point in time it should be lowering or at least staying equal compared to the body. That could be because of problem 2 but just so you know why it looks a little off.

>>29265
If the folders have a pony.ini inside them. Yes all you do is move the folder to your desktop ponies folder. If not you can either copy another ponies ini and change the names to work with whatever pony you are trying to use or use the pony editor once you open the program to create a new pony and just add each behavior for that pony. Not too hard if you just try.

Oh, you posted while I was working on the last tail-rework so I didn't see it in time. I'll try that. I did reduce the tail frames to 2 because it was looking even more sporadic when I had the three layers, but I'll go look at them again and see if I can figure out why they looked like that.
>> No. 29538

The tail seems too big and too rigid. Try making it a bit smaller and curvy, then try to give a smoother movement to it.
Right now, it looks and feels like a cardboard tail pasted to the pony's rump. (Also, that pony's colorscheme is way too similar to Luna's, which may have been the reason it was called a "cheap recolor".)

Neither did I til I just put in the time to try it. With all the bases we have of different ponies it's not too hard to make the basic animations for your character. To make the idle pose just take that first frame, chop off the legs, take the legs from another stallion like blues or doctor whooves recolor and paste on. Then draw an eye half closed ( again you can just recolor from another stallion) then a fully closed one and thats all the art you need. Stitch them together and easy peasy idle animation. If you want him walking around with a 'wingboner' as you put it. Take the wing I just put up paste it on your current gif. Just move it up and down for each frame as the body rises and falls. Make sure you erase his current wings and viola. The fireball you you will have to put a little more effort into put Im sure you can make something. Id probably just take your newly made idle animation and when his eyes are closed have him shoot something off. You can always come back here and ask for critiques or some advice if you are having trouble with it. Good luck.

This.
Also, the only things you -really- need to make a decent OC is patience, because:

A) It can take a few tries until you get it right. (Most people give up before even trying)

B) You need to sit and look at what you are doing. (Most people just add colours and paste things without realizing what they are doing)

And that's all. Who knows, maybe you could be the next spriting wizard and you had no idea until you tried.

Allright I have my normal computer back so I can start spriting again and I whipped this up. Its Fizzy from the my little pony movie now in g4 form. Let me know if the design looks allright so I can either change it or add the standing.

>>31374
Im wondering how you would even do that since they use the footage from the show. You could always go and change the lines so they say lines from friendship is witchcraft instead. That would be something really easy to do.

>>30881
Just curious, what are you planning with all the unfinished ones? I know I made a diamond mint gala trot animation with starly's base that could just use a standing animation and be good to go. I know Starly made bases for a bunch of background ponies that just need to be animated. There's a few more but I can't think of them right now.

though. The outlines should be something closer to the grey used for him. Though personally I would of added a bit of color to him. Maybe that aquaish blue that he uses in a few of his pieces. I think he would of been a colorful pony instead of simple grey.

That's not black, it's a shade of gray. Notice the only 'black' in that image is the eyes. Just lighten up the outline a little, it will look more natural that way.

I'm working on a few more for him, just a little as I go. I want to show him pulling the sombrero out, for one.

Oh god this one took forever but it was WORTH IT.
I couldn't get the photoshop file of the pinkie hop, so I had to get it frame by frame and alter each one. Also, it wasn't a simple recolor, I had to hand pick the tail and mane, plus make him look as close to the walking sprite I already have of him made by anonycat. Different face structure than Pinkie, thicker neck, different eyes.
He now chases Discord Whooves all over the place while hopping like Pinkie.

So I took it upon myself to make my OC pony, Viatrix, into a desktop pony today.This took me all day to make...and it's only the first version of the trot cycle, really. (Yeah, I'm fully aware of the issue with her legs, this is the first time ever that I have animated something other than a livejournal icon, which is /very/ different from ponies).
Other than the thing with the animation of the legs and the lack of "real" movement in her mane and tail, I would really love some constructive criticism (and by that, I mean comments that go along the lines of "If you do this, it'll look better--and here's how you do this").

>>32916
allright where to start. um
1. you have the animation in reverse
2. the body should be moving up and down during the animation. You can take a look at other ponies to figure out the rise and fall needed.
3. what program are you using that is causing the ghosting? If its photoshop you need to have 'restore to background' checked or figure out what the equivalent is in the program you are using to animate
4. the hair on the top of the head currently looks like its coming out of the opposite side and somehow poofing way up. Id cover up the dark grey line on the top of her head with hair so it looks like its growing more naturally.
5. Id bring the hair down a little as it approaches the ear
6. The light blue steak coming down her hair you have some spots where it jumps 2 pixels inward and stuff that makes it look jaggedy. You need to either add a few or take away a few pixels to make it look smoother. Hmm Im not explaining it that well so I threw up a picture with just a quick modification of it.
7. for the hair strip color(the light blue). I would try to mute it just a little bit. It looks a little bit too bright right now compared to the rest of your pony. Just calm it down a bit and I think it would work better.
8. Maybe change the tail just a little bit because all I see is fluttershy in that tail.
Well you are on your way and with just a little bit more work Im sure you can pull it off. Let us know how the changes go.

1. Fixed.
2. Fixed...at least the body is moving with the legs now. Of course, her head, mane, and tail are a different matter still (certainly makes for an interesting effect, though--I'd leave it as is, but that would be the easy way of doing things).
3. I use GIMP....and what is ghosting?
4. Added to my list of things to fix in the next version.
5. I'll take it into consideration.
6. Actually, I understood precisely what you were saying, and you have good eyes there. The jaggedness comes from a combination of my unsteady hands and using multiple layers for her mane.
7. I'll think about it--I was going for a certain feel with her mane/tail colors and I'd have to test it out to see if muting the streak will work...but I'll definitely look into it, in case I end up with a even better color combo.
8. Well, it /is/ Fluttershy's tail...I haven't quite settled down on what Viatrix's tail looks like--most of the drawings I've done of her have the base of the tail wrapped in something like a ponytail holder, actually).

Thanks for the list of things, that really does help me out a lot!

This is a neat program, the art looks just like the original characters, im enjoying the interactions between the differant ponies. But... I was wondering if you'd have the chance, in a newer version that you can add some more interactions. Such as:

-> If Rarity isen't on the screen and Spike and Twilight is on the screen, that Spike will follow Twilight around.

->When Rainbow Dash and Applejack are in close range, they do the "Spit on hooves" Brony clutch. And sometimes Arm wrestle.

->(This one might be too much) When Nightmare moon is on the screen, the main six of the ponies avoid her by running away, or will try and fight her.

-> Add Owlicious in the pet section, so Twilight has a pet to follow her around too.

-> When Diamond Tiara and the cutey mark crusaders are on the screen, Diamond Tiara will harrass them.

->Have Applejack and Applebloom follow Big Macintosh on the screen, If Applejack isent present and Applebloom and Big Macintosh is, just have her follow him.

New here. Wanted to pitch in some ponies (or alterations thereof) that some may be interested in.

Drunk Berry Punch (original art by CANDYBAG)
http://www.mediafire.com/?x23j9gobemkm53d
I am not claiming the original work here, as CANDYBAG did an awesome job. Made some minor script alterations (no removals), added sit (blink anim) and sleep frames, and one optional interaction with Colgate for those that follow the current tumblrs involving Berry Punch and Colgate.

Ruby Pinch

Berry Punch's foal. The fact that CANDYBAG's Berry talked about Ruby, yet she had no art, is the reason I downloaded GIMP and got into .gif creation/editing in the first place. Has follow scripts for Berry (both Drunk and OPPP) and Colgate (associated with tumblrverse). If you don't want the Colgate follow script, just remove "follow_colgate" from her in the editor. Pack includes trotcycle, idle, sit and sleep assets.

Colgate (original art by RJP)

Minor alterations to RJP's work (no removals). Colgate now stretches immediately after sitting (after seeing the assets available I couldn't help it), and has an interaction (and associated frame) with Drunk Berry Punch (associated with tumblrverse).

Berry/Colgate Interaction
One interaction based off of the following tumblrs:
http://ask-berry-punch.tumblr.com/
http://ask-romana-menta.tumblr.com/
Rather than sharing my interactions.ini (which would likely error up a storm with all the customs I'm refining for the pie sisters), I'll just post the necessary lines. If you want to see the interaction, paste the following lines to the bottom of your interactions.ini to see the Colgate/Berry interaction associated with the above packs:

colgate_int,"Colgate",0.1,100,{"Berry Punch"},False,{"colgate_int"},60
colgate_int,"Berry Punch",0.1,100,{"Colgate"},False,{"colgate_int"},60

Text sometimes overlaps, and I'm fiddling with pixel threshold to see what works best, so if you want to change it, just go into the pony editor and change the pixel distance on "colgate_int" for both Berry Punch and Colgate.

In response to myself, I have updated several things with Hans Arp pony, now known as Arpaden. The previous link will not work anymore.

Can somepony please do mine? i already have the sprite i just don't know how to animate and stuff...
>> No. 35267
>>35258
Your sprite has a lot of sub-pixeling. I'd suggest correcting that by using the same-sized pixels at the same intervals from each other.

For animation you'll need a program like GIMP that can do both transparency and layers. The matter is thoroughly explained earlier in this thread.

My sincerest apologies to anypony who cares. I had mixed up the Pony.ini files in Arpaden.zip. Here is the correct version. As before the previous link will no longer function.

Has anypony done a Daring Do for Desktop Ponies?

Yeah, somepony did take rainbowdash and recolored her then made a hat, shirt and wing bandage for her. If you look through the current Desktop Ponies Thread you will find her.

I can't download the Berry Pinch file. You might want to reupload that so I can see how it all looks together. Also thanks for contributing.

>>35258
I know I listed a link somewhere in this thread to a folder that has all sorts of bases in it that you can use to animate your pony. Just find it and look at some of the advice given and you should be able to whip him right up. Feel free to ask questions if you get lost.

>>35239
Nice

>>34146
A lot of those interactions you can add yourself to the program by going into the interactions.ini Read the explanation in the ini and look at the interactions and you should be able to figure out how to set it up. Then make sure you add the corresponding actions into the individual pony.ini for each pony by just creating a new behavior with an existing sprite or any you want to create. Play around with it some and you should be able to accomplish it.

Anyway to all those wanting their oc's made: This is not a request thread for that. Look through the thread here to find a template folder I posted and you should be able to use one of the bases inside to create your pony. There is plenty of advice given inside this thread, the previous desktop pony threads, the folder and my da journal for you to get the basic animations down. It is nowhere near as hard to make one as it looks. Just requires a little bit of patience to figure it out initially and then you'll be a sprite creating machine.

It's easily possible that I deleted the file and uploaded another version, breaking the link. Sorry 'bout that. This should take you to Drunk Berry Punch with my alterations: http://www.mediafire.com/?x23j9gobemkm53d

Bah, might do me well to actually READ :P Thought you said Berry Punch. Here's the proper Berry/Ruby Pinch link: http://www.mediafire.com/?g7sgvejtablx9jp

Was wondering why that was the only one that didn't have a rising download count.

This isn't an OC, but since it's not FiM I assume it shouldn't go in the main thread.

Anyways, it's Minty from G3! I made this after watching a couple of G3 things for some odd reason, and finding out that Minty was by far the best (and the only tolerable) G3 character. She's actually pretty cool.

Anyways, I found out only after making it that StarStep had already done a Minty sprite, but oh well! I interpreted the the mane style differently. (And a lot is left up for interpretation because in G3 all the manes are exactly the same, just different colors!)

Its always cool to see different interpretations. One suggestion would be that the back leg cuts in front of the tail otherwise she looks great. :)

Also yeah I believe this thread is for anything non-cannon to the show so
Give me your OC's and your past gens too
Your animations yearning to be shared

Oops I think I misstyped. I wrote berry pinch instead of ruby pinch. Sorry for that little confusion.
