Yes you can believe your eyes. We finally have a new OC Desktop Pony Thread! If you want you can still find the old one at >>35944
This is where you can show off any non g4, fannon or OC ponies. Here is the link to all the ponies that people have wanted to share. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/35213087/OC%20Desktop%201.02.zip If your pony is not in there and you wanted it shared instead of just critiqued or helped with then let me know and I will toss it in.

This is meant to be a place to share, get critique, advice, ideas and is not meant to be a request thread for someone to make your OC There are plenty of tutorials to help you out if you want to make your own pony. I suggest checking out monkeyjays video tutorial located here http://www.mediafire.com/file/sgvodqeja0w4e7q/make_your_own_pony_gif.zip which includes a base pony to get started on. All current templates can be found here http://dl.dropbox.com/u/35213087/Templates.zip There may also be some tutorials popping up on the desktop ponies forums that you can take a look at too http://desktopponies.bugs3.com/ The main program is also located there with all the cannon g4 ponies.

Now if you want any of these ponies in your regular desktop ponies program just drag the folders of the ponies that you want into the ponies folder of your regular dtp program to add them! Yes it is that simple. For the sea ponies since there are so many I made a new category which you will want to add if you add them to your main program.
Open your desktop ponies.exe
goto options
click custom filters
type in SeaPony
click change
click save
and you are done.

Also, if you have created a good OC or other non canon pony you want to share, feel free to post it as an attachment in the submissions sub-forum. :)

That said, you can download Firefly there to go with Surprise.

Well, Here's the little idle animation I mentioned I was working on. Just for a test I used the last few 2 or so frames to make a sort of head bobbing animation, but I'll Probably come back to that when I figure out how to make it look a little more natural rather than one of those "PARTY HARD!" Gifs (Nothing against them, some of them are awesomely hilarious XD)

This is fun ^w^ Next step is trying to figure out how to actually get it into the program to see him trotting around my desktop. Any tips, or advice with the animations would be awesome

I really hope I'm not going to be the only one posting here, I feel kindof bad XS Well anyways, here's a rough dragging gif that I was thinking of using for this character. By looking at it I came up with maybe a few things to tweak

-Having one of the hind legs to the side instead of sticking straight up (I used the balancing Zecora to make a base for this.)

-Finding a way to make the front legs (arms?) Dangle a l little more (for right now they're kindof static)

One other thing I noticed is that the hair and mane hanging down should be moving to look a little more natural, but I'm kindof stuck on how to do that or which sections to lasso up and move to give the hair and mane a more natural look. Also if anyone here finds something that might be able to improve on I'd be happy to hear it ^w^

It's just a recolor and you can easily do that all by yourself. You don't need photoshop or anything fancy and you can find plenty of online guides explaining how to recolor an animation as well.

Once you finish it, you can integrate it to Desktop Ponies by using the pony editor option, the rest is pretty much self explanatory.

And finally, the first post of this tread says:

>>"This is meant to be a place to share, get critique, advice, ideas and is not meant to be a request thread for someone to make your OC"

Hey so I decided I'd try to tackle the behemoth of a fic, Fallout Equestria. Enjoying so far. When I looked into our folder I saw little pip, calamity and velvet remedy but no steel hooves :(

I think it looks fine. Make the legs too much bigger, they'll look more like logs than legs. Not even armored ponies would have legs quite that thick, at least not if they're going to be able to walk.

I always wondered why she had her own vector? Plus they put her in most of the toylines, bushable, blindbag, mcdonalds toy. Makes me wonder if she was originally going to be in the show as a minor character role like cheerilee or perhaps she is an OC of one of the heads of the toy department. <_<

You can see right now. I've been working on it since around 10:00 today (eastern time) and I'm still trying to finish it.
Anyway, here's what I have so far of my new stallion (my first!). I call him Sephiroth Pony. Still need to add a cape which I planned and the single wing. (Might even give him a prosthetic wing animation, LOL)
As you can tell the cutie mark is simple, but even I don't think three dots will be enough. Anyway, I'd better search on Google to get a few pictures of Sephiroth so I can put more details on this OC.

That doesn't look like Sephiroth at all and why is that wing blue? Looks like you were really desperate to finish everything as fgast as you could and you never bothered to really pay attention to what you were doing.

Among other things, the mane and the tail look like pieces of cardboard and they don't resemble Sephiroth's hairstyle at all.

Try again, do it SLOWLY and finish one pose before rushing to make four at once.

Cut down the drama, please. If you always mess things up, then that's your problem and not a blanket excuse.

Don't post any other image here until you practice and especially, pay attention to the things you do. Making a single crappy pony can be understood but when you spam a lot of animations at once makes you look like you are paraspriting this thread on purpose by flooding it with horrible stuff.

Okay... so I pretty much made a few fixes on Sephiroth pony.
For one, I added the bangs (or whatever the heck they're called) and tried my best to make it really look like Sephiroth. I also made the wing folded and not spread. Any tips, suggestions, or whatever will be accepted and, if there is something wrong, I'll fix it again.
BTW I made a whole pony body from scratch a few times and it always turned out horrible and very uneven, no matter how hard I tried. A little trivia for you. (not meant to be offensive)
>> No. 44336
>>44327
I don't remember Sephiroth ever having mismatched eyes. They're bright Mako green. Here:

http://www.angelfire.com/mt/masamunetemple/sephiroth.html

Also, although the black coat is supposed to evoke the black of his leather outfit, it simply doesn't work here because, as far as colors go, fans are more likely to think of his silver hair first. Maybe add grey shoulder pads and other hints of his armor or something? Adding Masamune would help tremendously as well.

Also, although his hair looks a little bit closer to the weird thing his bangs do in this newer iteration, it's not quite there yet. Make it defy gravity even more.
>> No. 44337
>>44336
Oh wait, you made Masamune his cutie mark. I think it would make a better appearance as an actual sword, but that's okay too.

Also, if you are going with his black/blue wing from KH, make the blue darker than that. As it is, it looks kind of out of place.
>> No. 44339

That pony's muzzle doesn't evoke Seph at all.

What you really need is stop rushing things and actually pay attention to what you do before posting it here.
After all, this is not a race and neither is a quest to get some E-attention.
>> No. 44348
>>44327
That one does look better with that added hair but the rest of hair doesnt really invoke the look of him. You have the other part of the mane as a straight blocky haircut when his hair looks more wild and would be more spread out. Id have his tail be a little more winding in its look too. If you are going to have the wing, I would probably have it be open and have it have it be tri color (dark at the base to a lighter blue at the tips)to create that effect that I see in his pictures. I think princess luna's wing would work best. It might work if you use princess cadence's folded wing cause his wing is always seen as huge and the regular pony wing is just too small.

>>44288
He looks pretty good. His cutie mark reminds me of a typewriter in how it goes back and forth XD
There is a jitter in his tail that could probably be fixed to make him look nicer. Good job on your first pony :)

I think that this need go to the Official Desktop Ponies and no here

and you forget transparency in one pixel in the wing pose in the tail, or is intentional??

Its the fannon attributes that make her fit in here. If it was just a regular walk cycle etc, then yeah she would go in the regular program.

Hello. I have created a Slendermane Desktop pony, and I submitted his trot cycle to the other thread. His idle sprite was requested by Starstep.

I've only put in people's OC's who have requested they go in the program. If you get the gif files from the artists you can easily add their ponies to your desktop ponies program. Just use the pony editor or copy an existing pony.ini file and edit that to get them running in yours.

First version of The Weaver's Danganya for Desktop Ponies, so she could follow Ice Pack around to creep him out.

Animating her will be toooooooooough...

>> No. 46057

Yeah that happens when you don't have the frame restore to background. I know in photoshop if you right click on the frame in the animation bar, it should say something like automatic, dispose and restore to background. Select restore to background for all the frames. Hopefully it is something similar if you use a different program

Ok I just looked it up and restore to background got changed to dispose. Sorry when I was thinking what mine says I mixed it up. It says do not dispose or restore to background. So change it to dispose for each frame

G3 may not be the most popular MLP generation, but some of the character designs wouldn't look so bad in a G4 style.

That said, have a Toola-Roola:

Nice job. For some critique I'd say the front blond lock bounces a little too much but I do like how it matches the bounce in the back. It looks like you changed the stock eyes too. Nice work they look good. Gives him kind of a suave debonair demeanor. One thing is the bottom of the tail looks so flat since you have a whole bunch of pixels in a straight line. Changing just a few so they are not all in a row I think would help it just a bit. All in all a great job. Thanks for sharing.

>>46183
I agree, it is fun seeing the g3 heck any previous generations of pony in g4 form. Toola-Roola I think was one of the more likeable ponies from that generation. Not as cool as minty in her socks but the beret works for her. Nice work.

Oh geeze, would it be best to build a pony for this version of Desktop Pony Ocs, or use the more updated normal Desktop Ponies version?

Well, there's hardly any difference in creating them and the ponies would have to be added to the main program either way. Ponies made for older versions of the program are still compatible with the new versions for the most part, they just don't make use of some of the newer features.

But I tried using Ponies from this Version in the Official release. Some of them just made it crash.

Gosh I didn't realize it has been that long. I know a few things were changed in the way ponies work in the newer desktop pony version so I will try to go through and make sure they all work in that. I had to do the same when I made this version which required changing about 20 ponies that had various glitches.

>>46636
Make the pony.ini for the newest version as that's what you should be using. There is not that much difference but better to keep current.
>> No. 46683
>>46673
Ok I just tested the ponies out and none made the program crash. It might be that I tried out the ones I had in my version 1.03 folder but I don't think I had to change any besides a few where the speed of the gifs were set wrong but that wouldn't cause any crashes anyway. What ones made it crash if you remember?

Hello, I'm missing something. I have an OC and I dragged the folder into the Pony Data directory per the instructions. The folder shows up in the directory but the OC doesn't how up in the main menu to be selected.

What am I missing?

Thanks!
>> No. 47226

Hmm...
There could be something wrong with the pony's code, but it's hard to tell without knowing the content of your OC's folder. Do you maybe have a download of that OC so I could take a look?
>> No. 47230
>>47226
Thanks for the reply. I Just figured out what was up.

For reference, I'm using Xubuntu 14.04 and I believe the latest run of QT Ponies for Linux.

When I dragged the OC folder into the main pony folder the permissions changed and “locked out” all the contents of the OC folder.

The fix was to change the permissions (I used Nautilus as root) and give “root” read only instead of none.

Hey, I'm a fan of MLP like probably anyone that contacts you. And my OC's name is Master Silvertongue. This is a link to his bio and the like.

There seems to be a distinct lack of a downloadable desktop pony on that page, so even if the OC pack gets updated sometime in the distant future, how are we supposed to add something that doesn't exist?

Ok I made Kimi Sparkle. I thought about making it look like a really lazy, poorly made desktop pony with static hair and half the walkcycle or something to fit in with her parodying shoddy made OCs but I couldnt bring myself to do it. The color scheme was already enough to make me cry so I couldn't have it be that bad. Anyway enjoy and "I hope your day Sparkles!" http://starsteppony.deviantart.com/art/Kimi-Sparkle-520286245
