Nothing major. I just want to make some major tweaks for a few reasons.

1) Make them simpler to animate.

2) Add a few flares of detail that look natural.

3)Fix up color pallets.


I know what I should fix, but if anyone has any suggestions on possible design touch ups "for any character", feel free to respond. Any suggestions will help one way or another. I will consider the suggestions.

For those maintaining interests on my animation career, I'm currently in the storyboarding phase for my next big animation. Animation production takes a substantial amount of time and effort so bare with me as I continue along the production process. I have a few friends assisting me on this next one, but I would like for them to assist more so (if/when they're able to). The script for the project has already been written. I aim to focus on the intro for now since I want to be able to release it for an upcoming college class assignment, thereby killing two birds with one stone if you catch my drift. I'm still debating whether to release my big projects scene by scene or attempt to compile it all at once. For now I'll do scene by scene, but that might change in the future.

United States
I am a college student attending the University of Texas at Austin. I'm looking into majoring in Radio Television and Film but I mainly want to work on animation, graphics designs and writing for video games.

I'm a guy who likes epics. Full enriching tales of heroes struggling, villains destroying, empires corrupting, worlds changing, ideals tested. Simple ain't my style. Fleshing out a universe is what I do and I will go all out.

I don't do it for the fame, I don't do it for the money that the business promises, I animate cartoons because the world needs imagination and wonder. The sense of joy and mystery they project cheers people up and allows everyone to see things from a different perspective.

That's fine. I understand if you have other priorities to attend to. I'm still going to work on it even if I have to do majority of the work. The whole project is voluntary anyways.

Hello, I was wondering if you could share any tips on how you create prototype ponies. My fanfic that I'm making requires one robot pony and as hard as I try I can't design him! I saw your robot Ocs and I was just thinking, 'how does this guy do it, his robot pony designs look awesome!' Thanks!

Naw but in all seriousness it took quite a while for these designs to finally take shape. A lot of my inspiration for the design of these robot ponies came from the TV show My Life As A Teenage Robot which I was a big fan of. The simple tech designs allows me to easily animate the robot characters without having to deal too heavily with perspective issues considering the software I use, Adobe Flash Professional, is a primarily 2D program. I wanted to make all my robot ponies silly and kooky, so I purposefully made the designs expressive and unique without being too distracting.

The vent mouths were a short cut design I implemented so I wouldn't have to worry about lip synching. However, the vents still change expression along with the emotions of the robot ponies and they light up when they speak or gasp. They're not just static symbols. The eyes I felt were the most crucial part of the Protoponies to nail down. I didn't want to give them boring glow up eyes like most robots. I felt that severely limited the amount of emotional expression they could present. So I more or less kept the eyes similarly to normal pony eyes with a few additions and alterations.

Ever thought of trying out more steampunkish look on Robot OCs?

And moreover do you do commissions?
