Raindew and Ruby Icons by RenaTurnip Raindew and Ruby Icons by RenaTurnip
For =thetriforcebearer from about two months ago? @_@ It's been a long time since I started this and it drove me crazy. Animating is evil. None of you ever get into animation. Save yourselves the trouble. In fact stay really far away from pixel art forever. Go learn how to build boats or something. Boats shaped like Ponies.

I wouldn't mind seeing that.

Anyhow, the story here is that I started with the animation on the right, and after getting as far as I did, decided on the advice of a few people that it was kind of... nonsensical in concept. It didn't really seem to fit what I was going for, and the hoof movement was superfluous and Raindew would be super dizzy and such, so I started over from scratch and went for the sitting animation on the left instead. I'm much happier with how it turned out, and it looks more complete, and it makes Ruby look less like an annoying pest xD

Like all icons that are done for people, these are only for the person they are for. Anybody else using these will have copious amounts of glue bottles opened atop their heads.

Raindew Mist and Ruby :iconthetriforcebearer:

Oh and, dA has tiny icon filesizes, and transparency is a big jerk that makes things way bigger than it needs to. Hmph.

Thank you. It was certainly a challenge D: I was fortunate in that it really wasn't so hard to learn the way hummingbirds look and move. (Though this is more true in the left one; the right one looks more like a regular average bird flapping about, of course.)

Ahh, thank you xD Her movements were surprisingly easy to handle. It was the rest of everything else that gave me the trouble.

It's such a smooth animation :O Even though the process of making these is hard, seeing the beautiful end result is extremely rewarding, right?

RenaTurnip Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013
It's... usually rewarding. When the result doesn't take me two on-and-off months of work >_>; My feelings toward this stuff are not the most positive, I admit.

Thank you, though!

It is now your task to scour the entirety of deviantART every single day to find anyone who may be stealing this work. Good luck, soldier :icondreadpiratelunaplz:

I'm glad you could tell it was a hummingbird xD Especially since the animation on the right does not look like one at all.

A boat shaped like a pony? Something like this: [link] but with a pony instead? That'd be amazing.

Oh God xD I... I don't even know which Pony I'd want to be riding, but I would want to be on a boat like that for sure. That looks awesome and silly.

Time for boats then..
Second animation the back ear disappears a bit too fast.
I like it a lot though, the movements seem pretty natural
Reply
:iconrenaturnip:
RenaTurnip Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013
I haven't worked on the second animation in over a month. It's incomplete, despite how it looks... but oh gosh, haha, that ear does just apparate out of nowhere, now doesn't it? But yeah, no, it's incomplete and with it comes all mistakes I left behind, so >.>

Glad you like, though o:

Being that ruby likes to irritate everyone and only loves rain dew I find it funny that you say she looked like a pest XD
