yay flashes rock
Yay seapony Lyra
Excellent, I could use a few cheery animations right now.
Uhh... it took too long to load for Smile, I guess that's just my computer.
It took a while for the smile flash to load but it was worth the wait.
@11Bolts It's definitely not just you; it still hasn't loaded after 5 minutes. If Sethisto hadn't commented on its quality, I'd have thought it was made by a really clever troll.
You can try right-clicking and pressing play. That worked for me. Also, was it just me or did that first flash have a lot in common with the actually clip from the episode? That was awesome.
First looks cute but won't load.Was wary of shipping for second, but it's just a cute moving image of a perturbed Octavia and glass-half-full Scratch. (Either that or it's easy to make her content with a little music) I like it.Last is really sweet. It's like having a little Lyra aquarium.
#1 isn't loading for me...
Hadn't seen that animation before, it is pretty amazing what the fanbase is capable of!
I did get a look at all of them, but the first one kind of overshadowed the other three. I did manage to get it to play, and let me just say that it had me smiling all over again. It could almost pass as a concept animation for what we saw last week. Yes, we all need some smiles right now.
If number one doesn't load, right click and press "Play".
Right click and press Play for #1
the first one has some glitchy problems, for starters if it doesn't load right click and press play, if the music stops the video stops and then you need to right click, press rewind and press play but its still a good video though tedious to watch fully...
#1 It's very good though I lost audio after awhile as it was taking an age loading and I started it early but the quality is great.#2 I saw a drying pan joke in the comments, oh dear. Nice short loop, it's not great getting stuck in the rain.#3 Seapony Lyra just swimming about, I like it.
update: Smile loaded! It took 10 to 20 minutes, but it was worth it. Despite using the entire length of the song (I think) it somehow gets more impressive as it goes on. I liked the hair-poofing bit.
I've been having weird problems with Flash recently. It's like my PC is turning into a Mac.But anyways... YAY FANIMATION
Saw #1 when it first came out, pretty amazing indeed. The site is probably having trouble keeping up with EqD's traffic.Here's a download/mirror.
Whoaaa, the first one got pretty close to what the show put up a few times. Not that I'm complaining.
@The BookwyrmYes, especially the rotation during the "sad" part.Weird coincidence.
i cant see any images on DA! Somepony help! :_:
Wow, #1 had quite a few similarities with the official version. There was the "Pinkie walking forward" bit, Pinkie rotating during the "sad" bit, the camera above a crowd and a spinning Pinkie at the end...if there weren't so many parts that were very unlike the official version, I'd think the animation was made by someone who saw the episode early!
pretty good animations
That first one...What is it, and how do I replace my blood with it?Second made me chuckle, third was cute.
Really liked the first one. It didn't take that long to load for me. Maybe 2 mins or so. Well worth it. I think I will save it on my photobucket.
Also should mention that I like how the animation went with the beat of the song and the lyrics did as well.
The Smile flash was made before the episode? o.OSome of the animation's elements are exactly the same, like the part where she starts singing "it's true some days are dark and lonely" and like turns around.Also the ending where she's spinning and looking up to the sky with ponies walking and singing around her o:
@MarcoThat's exactly what I was wondering!!!I wouldn't be unduly surprised if the show's animators saw this and incorporated elements they liked from this fan-work into their work.
The Smile animation is cute. That song always makes me a little happier when I hear it too.I love Vinyl's "hat" in the second animation. lol Creative. The cello is getting all wet though, oh no. :(The third one feels like one of those old fish tank screensavers. lol I wouldn't mind seapony Lyra as my screensaver. :D
Wow, the Smile animation is pretty amazing! If it was made before the episode came out, it's awesome how they have the overhead view in it too. xD What else would have been appropriate?
That's hilarious! The first one predicted a few things from the episode, like the walking toward the camera bit and the birds-eye view.
I played #1 in Firefox, no problem with loading,or try this alternate URL:http://what-do-you-do.net/smile/
Oh and the first one was released two months before the actual release, I saw some of the author's streams and his work on it, it was even posted on reddit, here goes the link: http://www.reddit.com/r/mylittlepony/comments/n5f6g/i_animated_the_smile_song_please_like_me/
They should have three types of sea pony if Hasbro makes a sea pony episode Octoponies, Merponies, and the original sea pony. The Octoponies could be the pegasi of the sea. Reason: because they are fastPower:can manipulate the currents with the tentaclesthe Merponies would be the unicorns.Reason: Mermaid are magical Power: cast spell just like unicornsthe original Seaponies could be earth ponies.Reason:Seahorses work hardest of all to swim in the ocean just like the Earth ponies work the hardest.Power: NonePrincess Celestia, as ruler of all ponies could have the power to transform into a sea pony in order to be with them to. Did you ever notice that the Princess is always away on royal business? This could be why. And the seaponies should beable to get cutie marks too. but they can call them oceanic symbols.(Fail on the name)Or something better.
