Attack Concept 1:
Attack Concept 2:
Costume for Dash:

I figure for the blank flanks I'll put the faces onto the empty costume template, right?

This mod will get 20% better this weekend, as I'm going away and I'll have 6-7 hours of travel time.

Man, drawing pixel-by-pixel is hard.

UPDATE:

For Applejack, whatever she is

For the Wizard (Celestia/Luna)

Any help animating the manes would be awesome.
This is the wings-down cycle, which I figured was more appropriate if the wings-up sprite is used for jumping.

EDIT
Funny story:
I was listening to a radio show about inspiration and creativity, and realized how I'm going to do the sprites for Luna and Celestia.


By what percent is Celestia taller than Luna, or should I keep them the same size?

The mane parts are detached but are on the model too.
Thanks for helping.

A few things. First off, I'm not completely sure why all your images are JPEG instead of day PNG, considering how tiny they are. I sure hope your working copies aren't JPEGs, since these previews are incredibly blurry. Secondly, are you planning on redrawing all these at a different size later? What you've been showing so far won't fit properly into CP and (especially if they are JPEGs) would look pretty bad scaled down. Just hoping to prevent problems before they become so.

They're JPEG because I uploaded them through imgur. They are saved as PNG images, don't worry.

They do look quite terrible scaled down, as the pixel count drops really low, especially if you zoom in. Far away, they just look like they need a color touch-up. Or three. I could completely redraw them at 25x25 dimensions, but I don't have time for that because I am now entering the Regional Science Fair and will have less free time.

Thanks for your help.

I'm pretty sure imgur only converts images from PNG to JPEG if they're really excessively large (full-screen size), which they almost definitely are not.

24x24, though if you won't have the chance to redraw all the sprites scaled down later, they really are going to look terrible scaled down by such an odd factor, so might I suggest just working in 24x24 in the first place?

Any time.

I'd keep them the same size. Maybe Luna a pixel or two shorter.

Thanks.

Should Mare-do-well or Daring Do take the place of the ninja?

And does uploading things to a file-sharing site cost me? Some files I download require either money or use download credits.

Update:

From far away, the ponies at 24x24 don't look too shabby. Of course, a color touch-up is required. When I finish Dash, I'll post a screen cap.

Update 2: So the crouching Dash is done, but the lunging and diving sprites are really bad. Anyone care to help?
The rest of the Dash sprites are done and are being converted to a usable, transparent type.

Sorry for the double-post, but Rainbow Dash is (almost)finished! The lunge and dive attack sprites are still pretty horrible.
Pictures inside spoiler boxes to prevent overload of post.





Yay

If someone tells me how to capture gameplay videos, I'll put one up.
For now, you'll have to email me for the mod files.
Trixie is also pretty much done. Some clipping into RD's sprite boxes, but I'll fix it.
Right now the main issue is:

All right!
Dash is fixed, except for minor clipping issues with Trixie.

Right now the largest project for me is Scootaloo.

Heh, sweetie derelle




Were you going to do the muffin, or should I go ahead?
And also, should the Kid be a person, Pinkie, or Lyra? I'm debating all three with mixed recommendations.

camstudio.

and how did you do dash? im noting that close up, she looks real pixxely, did you just get an image and then scale it to 24x24 size?

also flutterstep.

To make Dash and Trixie, I got some concept images, drew up a larger-scaled model of the final product, touched it up, scaled it down to 24x24, and finished it off. That's why up close the coloring is a bit weird. It looks fine from a distance, to me.
For the Derelle, I just made a circle and a face in the period of seven minutes, plus two for the costume.

For example, to make the lunge I drew up a pixel image of Dash performing the sonic Rainboom and scaled it.

Luna's first round of sprites is done.
They're small, of course.





The first three are walking sprites, the fourth is the "magic charge", and the fifth is a concept of what the transform will look like.
If you zoom in close, you can see that I animated Luna's mane stars.

I need a good .wav file for Fluttershy's "yay". Currently the TF2 Scout is yelling "WOO HOO HOO" when somebody exits and it's getting old.

All of the finished changes are here:


Even moar!


Celestia sprites, if you couldn't tell.

I debated the troll face due to popular demand but decided not to.

Might as well.

Don't blame me if the file vanishes, I dunno how filedropper works. :P

Wow thanks dude!
I had already begun thinking of alternatives.

Celestia and Luna are almost done. I'll need to see if the charging ball of energy(?) is in the center of mass or on the horn.
UPDATE
Basic, non-transparent sprites are done.











As always, they're small. I wish Celestia wasn't so bright of a shade of white.
Each aspect has three walking sprites, a ducking one, and a charging one.
And a jumping one.
How would one go about converting MP3 to OGG Vorbis on Windows 7?
Also, opinion thing: Would you deem the BGM of Glaze's "Rainbow Factory" to be a good song for the ninja?

Edit:
Oops, forgot the jumping sprites:




Ooooookay.....
This is gonna take a while to transparent-ify.

ALICORNS
Y U HAVE SO MANY SPRITES
