Applejack's Red Umbrella
This is another request from StevenPepi.

It'll be a while before I have time for these; I've got eighty frames of Celestia's mane to put together, and then another 80 frames of her tail to put together!
Celestia's Rain Outfit
This is a request from StevenPepi, and it's been a long time coming.  First I had to find an episode of the TV show that showed Celestia walking in profile, and that showed her whole walk's animation (Celestial Advice).  Then I had to create a base for that walk-animation, and it took several tries to get that right---and even now, there's some room for improvement!

Fortunately, I think Steven was okay with me doing this request for him without animating Celestia's mane and tail---those have 80 frames each, and it could be months before I get done with them!

Also fortunately, I have the perfect excuse to not animate them:  since it's a rain-outfit that I'm drawing for him, and since her mane and tail stick out way past her umbrella, she'd somehow need to tie up or cover up her mane and tail in order to keep them dry.  So I drew plastic covers over her mane and tail; those are keeping them from moving.

Apart from that, I mostly stuck to Steven's original design; I gave her a very wide-brimmed rainhat---wide enough to keep her whole horn protected.  I also gave her an umbrella with her mane's colors.  I hope that it's okay that the umbrella and the pocket on her raincoat move about as much as they do; I tried to give the impression that her rain jacket is stretching a little as she moves her legs.

Besides the plastic mane/tail coverings, pretty much the only difference I had between this outfit and Steven's design is that her front hooves are being protected with boots.  I figure those can step into puddles just as easily as her hind hooves...!

I hope this is what you were looking for, Steven!
Celestia Wireframe Base
This is a wireframe base of Celestia, made to be to-scale with the existing pony pixelart animations that are everywhere.

I realized that there weren't any bases for Celestia pixelart out there, so I found an animation of her walking pretty much horizontally on the show (season 7 episode 1, Celestial Advice), took pictures of it on my iPhone while going frame-by-frame using Quicktime, went into MS Paint with those pictures as a base, and this is what I came up with!

You'll likely need to expand it horizontally to fit her hair...and her hair is going to be a doozy to animate; it'll be a while before I'll be able to get that animation done!  I got screenshots of her mane's full animation, I think from the Royal Problem episode, and it was eighty frames long!  So was her tail's animation, for that matter.  (Wish me luck!)

Anyhow, use this base to your heart's content.  I'd prefer it if you credited me!
Celestia walk animation (unmoving hair)
This is kind of a work-in-progress; StevenPepi requested that I create an animation of Celestia wearing a jacket, rainboots, rainhat, and umbrella, and this is how far I've gotten with Celestia's walking animation so far.

I realized that there aren't any animations of Celestia that are scaled to the same size as most other pony pixelart animations, so I've taken it on myself to provide some.  Probably within the week, I'll have some bases on in my scraps folder, and then (depending on Steven's feedback) I'll either start on the mane and tail animations (which will take a LONG time, as they're 80 frames each!) or I'll start on a version of his request that doesn't have animated hair.

Whichever one I do first, though, I know I want to animate her hair before I call this project done---I think the fandom deserves a base of her hair, animated!
celestia wireframe gait test D
This is a rough draft of a base animation of Celestia walking.  I've spent the better part of the weekend working on it as part of a request from StevenPepi.  You can tell from the filename that it's about the fourth draft so far---I've had some setbacks.

Unfortunately, I can see that it still needs some work; at the very least, Celestia's front-left leg's animation needs to be at least a little redone.  The animation of it swinging forward jumps a little in the middle; I need to fix that.

If anyone spots anything else wrong with it or sees ways it could be improved, please let me know.
Wish me luck, everypony!  Tonight's the night I upgrade to Windows 10!

I say "wish me luck" because I've heard horror stories---face-to-face from a human being who had this happen to him, mind---that, if anything goes wrong with the upgrade, and you call Microsoft for tech support, then Microsoft sends all your computer's data to a company in India, and that Indian company basically allows hackers free reign on your machine!  It's been on the news, but Microsoft just. doesn't. care!

If anything goes wrong with the upgrade, then I expect I'll need to get a new computer!  I've backed up all my data on my external hard disk and disconnected it, I've moved anything I can think of that's sensetive onto the same external hard disk, and I plan to erase all my cookies before the upgrade happens.  But I could be shopping for a new laptop on Tuesday if this doesn't work out...!

Cross your fingers!


LookOutHereComesTom's Profile Picture
United States
I got bit by the brony-bug in 2010, and ever since 2012, I've been working on a fan-project to make a platformer fangame that lets you play as any of the main six and switch between them on-the-fly. It's still a work-in-progress.

A big h b d to Tom!

Thanks :)

Hopefully some time next week, I can do a request or two---I've not erased them from my notifications; I hope to get around to them.  I'd like to see Celestia animated and clothed; I'm just a little too busy at the moment to start on a project like that.

do you help out on fangames
LookOutHereComesTom Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2017
Well, yes and no:  at the moment, I'm building my own fangame engine from scratch using Java, and I'm building it specifically so that other bronies can use it to make their own platformer games (it includes a level editor).  I've been working on this fangame/editor project since 2012, and I've still got a long ways to go with it---as I'm juggling this platformer and a few other projects, I can't really take on much more of a workload.

That being said, if you're thinking about making a platformer fangame (for MLP or otherwise) and don't want to do any coding yourself, then my Weather Factory Meltdown game engine might be right for you---it was designed to allow a user with just MS Paint and some ideas to make a platform game of their own.

Also, if you'd like to use the images or animations that I've put together, then you can go ahead (though if they're of other people's OCs you should get their permission first, of course :) )
