Mousey - Rough Animation Test by FluttershytheKind Mousey - Rough Animation Test by FluttershytheKind

A little rough animation practice on some wing flaps, since they are my most favorite thing to animate ^_^ 

Nothing terribly clean here at the moment, just keeping the rust off on an otherwise not-so-eventful weekend ^_^ 

Gotta get back to animating the first episode of YCADITAW with Dr. Pegasus soon...but this was a nice little break from the normal style for me ^_^ 

I do hope you all have enjoyed a lovely weekend, and that if you’re on the Eastern Coast of America, like I am, you stayed safe and toasty away from the snow ^_^ We even got a small dusting here in Atlanta (though not enough to do much with) 

Love you all, 

~FtK

As someone trying to get into animation myself, I had to see this for myself. And so far, it looks fantastic. It looks smooth, the wings definitely acting natural. Kinda reminds me of an angry vulture, which I hope was what you're going for. The mouse is adorable and when it scared the pony, that is the reaction I wasn't expecting. But it looks well executed and again, smooth as glass. Him scampering away instead of taking to the skies is a nice touch and a lot funnier. Good job bud. If this became completely animated, I would love that to no end.
What do you think?

I dunno if I've ever commented before on your DA, but I just adore your animations.  The huge wings (well... anatomically-semi-plausible-but-huge-relative-to-the-show wings) are especially a nice touch. :)

I can not even imagine how many references and clips you had to watch to get that right, that's just beautiful how well you've captured the wing movement.

When this is finished it will probably be my new favorite from you. It's just amazing. I love all the littke details you put in the animations, they aren't just moving from A to B; they live in between with those quick expressions and subtle movments that make me watch them over and over again till im sure i've caught them all

Holy crap that's some massive wings.
(Probably quite realistic though)
The more I look at it, the more I love it. The motion of the wings especially...it's just got this really sinister quality. Perfectly captures that "vulture" feel.

Element of Loyalty. Destroyed the sound barrier twice as a filly. Glady goes into danger headfirst.

Great work!

Even your massive wings can't save you from the terrors of a small mammal! So much for being a brave boastful pony.
