This is my third My Little Pony animation commission. This was requested by :iconcielorey: CieloRey. Flightless is an Original Character created by CieloRey.

Well finally, right? This one took a LONG time to do. The first reason is obvious. The second reason, the last two months of school really had me bogged down in work so I could only animate pieces of this at a time. But it’s finished, I’m glad, and I can take a breather now. It occurred to me during the animating process, the splitting tree at the end would be like the pony equivalent of walking away from an explosion, lolz.

This is without a doubt THE most complex pony commission I’ve done so far; and it’s also the first time I’ve experimented with Flash’s blur filter. Because of the amount of work, time and effort put into this commission I’m going to add more and change the Commission Rules.

I would like to thank :iconboneswolbach: and those who work on for the resources from MLP-VectorClub for giving me ideas for the backgrounds. Helped A LOT.

This is a very well done and high quality animation, however, there are some flaws that I noticed.

Considering this is a male pony, there are some points where his face turns feminine. (The smaller snout, such as in the end.) Try to keep it a little more consistant - especially when someone is paying you.

On the originality scale, it's hard to get original pony poses using the show's style. But you did well! This also exceeded my expectations. Whenever I see animations I always see a looped animation like a pony running, flying, or in some cases falling. It was nice to see something original and creative. Well done!

MAJORA64 Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2014  Hobbyist Filmographer
Several transparent shadows overlapping each other, thanks for pointing that out because I plan on updating some of these animations at some point

Heh, the shadow of the tree being sliced in pieces keeps repeating, just to let you know :D

I had no idea, lol, another thing I can fix laters.

Interesting backgrounds. My only quibble would be that the ground looks relatively plain in respect to the surrounding trees.

As for everything else, the head shapes turns into one of a mare at the end. Given the lack of stallion head references, I suppose that's understandable, especially with being able to get the head turn to look right.

Good work. :)
MAJORA64 Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012  Hobbyist Filmographer
Thanks for noticing those mistakes, they're something I can fix after the New Year.

It came out rather nice, better than expected for the most part. I’m quite impressed with the background and everything. All in all I am quite pleased and you were right my money did not go to waste. I am glad this was hard for you and I was able to challenge you, I hope you had fun doing this and perhaps we can work together again sometime if you’re interested.
