Butterfly Kisses Animation by FluttershytheKind Butterfly Kisses Animation by FluttershytheKind

Aw, goodness Fluttershy, you must watch where you’re going...when you’re having fun its easy to misstep.. Fortunately Ms. Butterfly knows just the remedy for bruised noses ^__^

and gosh, this animation was quite a doozy...Toon Boom helped a lot, but walk cycles are always hard...and they are not my strongest suit..but I was happy for the practice ^__^

Hopefully this makes up for my less than abundant pony posts these past few weeks...but anytime I wanted to work on MLP pieces I worked on this...and...well it took a while to complete ^^

So happy I can share it with you all though! and I hope you’re having the most wonderful day!

Love you all,

~FtK

oh, and, if I may be so bold as to ask......if anyone with some extra dA points to spare wouldn't mind donating so I can keep my Core Membership running, I would be so deeply appreciative <3

Oh gooosh, this is so god darn adorable, I can't deal with it... Frankly I love the way to you draw ponies, using such sharp, angular approach to the body, leaving the softer curves for expression, eyes, mouth and motion. The animation here shines to be sure, it's so smooth, so fluid and rendered with visible care and attention to details. The running circle, the kinetic response of wings and her entire body, the tail and mane swaying with the motions... It feels very organic and real, and that alone would make this piece pretty top notch.

But animation is not the only great thing here. Your style is charming and cute when still displaying high quality and attention to detail. Fluttershy is a big cutie to start with, but with your touch to the character she is disarmingy adorable.

The idea for the animation is fairly simple and straightforward, but do not take it wrong - simple is good most of the times, and here it is definitely good. It fit the character, is easy to describe and make for a really lovely loop.

Superb work to be sure!

Good to see some more animation from you! It's always a treasure.

You are a master of emotion, both portraying it in character movement and in eliciting it from the viewer. The timing between the playful chase, sudden fall, momentary sadness and immediate comfort is perfect and allows us to see how even a butterfly with no facial expression is feeling. I'm impressed.

The only nitpick I have for this is to add a bit more movement to the wings. It looks like they fold out once and then just stay frozen in their half-open position until she falls back down; since your style is all about the removal of outlines, that clutters up the view of her walk-cycle and makes it hard to tell how she's moving.

This could be your best work I've seen so far. The animation is very fluid from start to end. You definitely delivered on Fluttershy's personality too just from seeing this.
