Twilight Sparkle's Received A Book, yo. by TheWrongestTrousers Twilight Sparkle's Received A Book, yo. by TheWrongestTrousers
I used to wonder what friendship could be, until you all shared its magic with me.

EDIT: Removed bump-nose advanced. Also, preview doesn't look like it came out of a 90's computer's butt.

From: Season 2 Episode 9 - Sweet and Elite

Phew. I am, now, done with the mane six, guys. Jeeze, each one was rough, and now I'm incredibly disappointed with my Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Applejack submissions.

Rarity and Rainbow Dash, if only because it's just a short loop, not in the same style as the others.

Applejack... you can see what's up with that one (SUPER PIXELATED EDITION)

Anyway, there ya have it, again I am taking submissions of short gifs/scenes, if you guys have any particular bit you want to see rotoscoped like this. If I don't see any, I'll just look for very specific ones.

And no, I didn't forget about the Sweetie Belle one, I-forget-who-asked-for-it.

Curious about the inspiration for this style? Check out this vidcon: [link] [Link to: Last Window: (Behind the Scenes: Animation)]

how do you make animations like that?

Huh, it's been a long time since I did those. It's essentially just replicating the animation in the show, adding some Hotel Dusk-esque flair and viola. Just redraw the lines, throw in shading, hatching to give it a hint of 3D and do that frame by frame. Then for the last 3 frames, just draw the finished frame 3 times and loop it.

I did this all in GIMP 2.4? 2.6? I don't recall. But that thing allows you to extract multi-layered projects as a .gif file, which is nice considering it's a completely free program. I use that thing for all of my .gifs here.

I'd look at this to get some more insight about the style - www.youtube.com/watch?v=xv6L26… (Last Window Behind the Scenes on the Animation. That slick Nintendo DS game)

Thanks for the question!

The style is very much stolen from Hotel Dusk/Last Window for the Nintendo DS. I liked the look so much, I wanted to see how ponies worked with it. Became sad that I thought that, and then did it.

Those are quite fancy beanies you've got goin' there

Happy Twilight is best Twilight I think. Gotten behind on all my notifications, but slowly getting through them. Excellent work as always! I think this animation turned out really well. It's a great set of frames and looks really smooth. :D

Happy pony is best pony, in general. I hate getting on and seeing 400-700 notification things. Then having to sift through them, likely missing a few great ones.

Yeah, I thought it worked a bit better than I was expecting. I was surprised at my own consistency throughout it, I usually do one huge screw up in an area and have to re-shade it.

At the moment I've got 1,184 notifications. >_< I guess that's what I deserve for working nonstop all weekend. At least I get a little break this week. Oh well, I'll find a way to clear them out! There's bound to be some awesome ones in there. ^_^

Click X 100 times per second. Feel bad about it when you've accidentally clicked on one you actually liked.

A rotoscope? Of my favorite book reading pony?

...it may be more likely than you think.

Adorability levels are going beyond maximum levels, and are threatening to set a new world record. Humanity and ponykind thank you, wrongestTrousers. We have achieved maximum cute.

I want to hug her, oh so much~
