Oh snap MLPG, it’s time to draw!
To kick off the new year, let’s have some fun and draw the intro to the show that’s keeping us on this wild ride: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic! We are looking for some good fashioned QUALITY here so, regardless of your tools or skill level, feel free to join! For examples of what we’re going for, please see the links below:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZZd10L68_0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VT8Xp1RgbY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyoW1W5HUnw
In a nutshell, take a screenshot out of the show’s intro, and redraw it as you see fit!
Submissions may be posted in this thread, or sent over to mrponiator(at)gmail.com.
Deadline is January 30th, so you have a near full month to scribble your piece!
For the sake of consistency, use S1 intro as reference ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOmdB7D-pUU
), sans the S1 colors. Alicorn Twilight and other details from newer seasons are still allowed, but this version of the intro does not have the train going through the town, so this version should be easier to draw. You may feel free to try if you’re adventurous, of course!
Now, for some submission guidelines:
- Submissions should roughly be 1280x720 pixels.
- Much like the 4chan board, let’s keep things safe for work!
- Your submission should preferably include a non-transparent background.
- You may post your submission in parts: background and separate images for the character(s). This way I can add some little animation to your drawings!
- If you want to “reserve” a given frame (ie. anything between roughly 0-33 seconds), you may post in this thread.
- Questions? Ask away!
As soon as there is a sufficient amount of submissions, I will begin to put a video together. Of course, you don’t need to rush, as the window for submissions will remain open up until the deadline.
Also to specify, submissions can be PNG, JPG or whatever you prefer. .SAI and .PSD files are also accepted.
AND another addition is that if you wish to reserve a frame, for the sake of clarity you can take a screenshot and post it in this thread.
I love this idea, I'll try and pick something.
how did i do
You did good, anon!
That's one down, a bunch more to go!
If there are no takers for the preciding or following frames, you can for example draw Spike sending that letter as a separate image, and I can then give it some animatic flair in the final product.
Of course, let's try to not be too hasty and give others some time to turn in their contributions!
anon, what are you doing?
Good going! Feel free to make the background too, if you'd like.
That's by no means a necessity. Just like the provided example videos from /m/, you can mess around as much as you wish with things like injokes, recolorings and what have you.
Here hold this, now you can fix the baloon.>>15589
(+1 frame to twi)
There's no right or wrong way to approach this (aside from keeping it SFW), just do it however you'd like.
And to add one note to the SFW rule, I'll still accept stuff like "can't show that on a christian imageboard!" stamps or the like (maybe during that screenshot you can just use a greentexty screencap from a MLPG thread), but preferably I'd upload the finished product to a MLPG YouTube channel of some sort (does one exist?).
Of course, I'll also provide webms and mp4 download links once it's done.
It's all good, just making something is the important part.
scenery porn is hard… at least that looks possible. good luck and thanks for participating
Here's the background for my shot, gettin' weird with it.
Will post pone shortly
Here's the pone!
I tried my best to make it work with transparency, if that doesn't work out, I made a version of the image with the pone just above the background
Good job fellas, that's eight finished submissions by my count (pending Chesh's background)!
Here's a quick list of moments/frames yet to be reserved or drawn:
>0:06-0:07 Dash flying over Ponyville
>0:08-0:11 Twilight jumping out of the balloon and walking a few steps
>0:17-0:17 Rarara, flash screen transition to AJ
>0:20-0:20 Bunny eating the Apple
>0:20-0:21 Close up of the library/twalot's castle before, Twilight teleports in
>0:23-0:24 Camera pan over to point at Canterlot
>Lauren Faust text
>0:15-0:15 RD flies away, rainbow screen transition to Ponk
but I can put it together from Tan's submission if there are no other takers or Tan wants to extend add to his submission.
Also on the title logo and lauren faust text submissions, I'm accepting as many as people submit and just cycle through them in the finished video.
Can I do the shot where Spike breathes fire and sends the scroll?
Anon already kinda did it >>15619
, but if you want to do it, go right ahead and I'll try my best to implement both.
I'm going to try to do another frame this weekend.
from the 0:21 mark
While this seems pretty interesting.
Is there a way to keep track on who called which frame?
Every submission (aside from one which was emailed to me) and claimed frame can be found in this thread, essentially.
There's this list >>15622
but I probably should make a spreadsheet of some sort to make things easier to check, though.
Well, it has been an entire day since my post and you are the only new post.
Was thinking of doing something but, doesn't seem too organized or that it'll even take off…
Good luck anyway.
I did not want to go for a very organized structure, since I wanted this to be more of a spur of a moment thing. A project for fun, and not so much about caring about the picky details or what have you.
There are a few artists who have shown interest but are yet to submit anything. The main thing is that MLPG is not exactly what it used to be, in terms of frequenting drawfags. So even though there are no requirements in terms of skill, that somewhat limits the number of people that are willing to participate.
Alrighty, there's also the screen transition between AJ and Flutters' clips, with the apples (or whatever you come up with) falling down. That can be a transparent image, and not necessarily 720p.
Otherwise, aside from >>15630
the current list of things left still applies >>15622
As a side note, an anon made one for the Lauren Faust name drop on MLPG some days back. He didn't post it here, but I saved it. I'll still allow as many of those (and title logos) as people submit, and just cycle through them in the final video.
I'll start putting together a rough version of the whole thing within a day or two, which should give a clear idea what's left to do.
i claim logo
get fucked tess
Don't worry, that's included in the current rough version.
And here's the .xcf, in case anyone wants to use the treated background or make something better.http://files.catbox.moe/s3ixs4.xcf
nevermind, here's a gallery of ithttp://imgur.com/a/8I3mv
oh wow i just realized that i gave you a non-transparent version
here you go
You did good, anon!
That leaves these open:>0:06-0:07 Dash flying over Ponyville>0:08-0:11 Twilight jumping out of the balloon and walking a few steps>0:12-0:14 Mane5>0:17-0:17 Rarara>0:20-0:20 Bunny eating the Apple>0:23-0:24 Camera pan over to point at Canterlot
Of course, someone may draw a picture of the library/dead tree/tombstone/whatever/crystal castle, if they so wish.
Dibs on bunny eatin' the apple
Well, why not. I'll attempt rare pone at 0:17
If you're up for it, sure, go ahead.
Also I'm going to extend the deadline by a week or two, as there was interest in taking some of the remaining slots (Goggles said they'd need a week or so to do anything proper).
So, if Goggles' is going for the 0:08-0:11 spot, then these are the only ones no one has reserved yet:>0:06-0:07 Dash flying over Ponyville>0:12-0:14 Mane5
you're right, so i took care of that.
here's the link to the graphic, randumb. i'll leave it up to you how you go about doing this in the actual clip.http://imgur.com/sBQVyLp
I'll go for 0:12-0:14, maybe the other slot too after
Alrighty, that means all sections are reserved one way or the other, then!
Alright, just waiting on three submissions to be turned in (RD flying over Ponyville, Twilight jumping out of the balloon and walking a few steps and Rarara), and then all bits and pieces are accounted for.
Here's RD w/ transparent background smashing through a cloud, at 0:06 mark. For the actual cloud, use the one drawn by >>15607
And here's RD w/ transparent background
gliding over ponyville, at 0:07 mark, w/ seprarate background(I made it big as fuck to reduce pixellation). Good luck animating it.
Thank ya kindly. That only leaves two submissions left to be turned in!
Is this ever gonna get finished, Mr. Poniator?
I think I'm gonna give 'em time till the end of the month. If nothing is turned in by then, I'll do the couple missing pieces.
Maybe I'll also do 0:17 Rarara if >>15741
That's perfectly fine by me.
The other missing bit is Twilight jumping out of the balloon and walking a few steps (0:08-0:11) for reference if anyone wants to give it a try.
Alright, I'm aiming to complete this on wednessday. Thursday at the very latest. If nothing is turned in for the Rarara or "Twilight jumping jumping out of the balloon (etc)" bits, I'll do them myself.
Does that mean you will accept submission upto Wednesday, or you will combine all submissions and upload final video on Wednesday?
Almost done with Rara, will try to submit as soon as possible.
If you can turn it in by roughly Wednesday midnight (UTC/GMT), then all is fine. I will begin animating Twilight's trotting bit that evening, which may take a few hours or so, and then put all submissions together as well as any necessary tweaks.
Alrighty, I've received >>15813
's submission. I've begun to put all the submissions together, so expect the video go up tonight!
oh, i completely forgot about this until today.
was really pleased with this.
thanks for putting this together, and thank you to everyone who drew.
