Rainbow Dash and Her Amazing Yoyo Trick Animation by FluttershytheKind Rainbow Dash and Her Amazing Yoyo Trick Animation by FluttershytheKind

I decided to take this particular piece to a more finished place, with some cleaner black lines, and of course Rainbow’s full pallet ^^ 

(Although I still enjoy simple line art to fully colored pieces if I’m honest) 

I really fell in love with this little motion exercise when I first did it, I’m not sure why it appeals to me so much, but I think it might have been the added challenge of the string ^_^ 

In any case I’m delighted to have this one all finished up, and I promise the only thing Rainbow hurt was her ego...that little nose of hers will be just fine.  ^_^ 

I hope you’re all having a super delightful day ^_^ 

All my love, 

~FtK

Possibly my favorite Rainbow Dash fan piece to date and it's great to see this piece get even better. Any gripes from my previous review (Abridged: nice flow, needs more tail) has been seen to. So I can't justify giving <or = scoring so it's five stars across the board for me because I couldn't find a single reason not to.

The added colour gives a nice professional visual and more life to the piece, although the sketchbook style has it's own appeal and identity so that's a take your pick.

To SUM(lines 1-7) Great short working to its limitations of time and sound, smooth flow and now reaching it's 200th cycle I still go "Ha! She got bopped by a yo yo... awww,"
What do you think?

This is hilarious and makes a particularly funny counterpoint to the Saint-Saens / yo-yoing flamingo segment of the most recent Fantasia.

Man I just love your animations so much, they're so adorable!
May I ask, how did you get so good at frame by frame animation? Online tutorials? Animation classes?
I'm asking because I may be interested in this media and I could use some tips :D

I did attend university specifically to study animation, but before that I would watch animated movies frame by frame and sort of absorbed how it was all put together ^_^ School definitely helped to make sense of everything though, and of course constant practice ^_^ I always recommend getting The Animators Survival Kit by Richard Williams though. Its a book that has everything you need to know about animating ^_^ I still use it today as a professional ^^

Robert Williams? :o
I just loved his movie ''The Thief and the Cobbler'' as a kid, but I didn't know he wrote a book about his animation!
I'm probably going to check it out. Thanks a bunch for the reply!

This is so funny! I love how the Yoyo casually rolls back to her all like

"Please don't hate me... it's just my nature to return back... I don't mean to hurt when I return... I love you Dashie!"

... that got a little weird at the end...
