Yay Flash!

My third animation ever in Flash. I used some reference for this one but am proud to say that I drew and animated it from scratch.

Love Derpy, and her muffin obsessed ways.

Original WiP here [link]

**Edit**

- Shortened back leg stretch
- Changed several frames when back leg is pulled forward
- Added cuts for hooves on specific frames
- Animated drop shadow
- Inverted Eyelid
- Shrunk head slightly
- Modified the curve at the belly.
- Modified background leg animations to better match foreground.

***Edit2***

- Re-animated hind legs

Because of the under-hoof mark you added, it looks like she is walking diagonally and the back leg animation looks just a tad awkward. BUT! I'm comparing it to the show's animation, it's pretty awesome for a fan work. It has a unique life to it that lots of fan cycles miss out on, your animations make the pones have a distinct confident stride. Nice job ; D

You know what? you're absolutely right. The back legs are angled just slightly so it looks like theyre off balance. revision is coming up soon =P

It's always hard to tell someone a great animation needs work. especially when you can't animate that well.

Did you reference that RainbowDash wireframe? It's got the same frame lag on her rear leg.

I did reference a trot cycle. It seems to be the same one that was released with all of the official walk cycles, so I'm pretty sure it's the same frame build.

With fear of sounding like a hypocrite, here comes some tips:
The right back leg.. err.. hoof(?) seems to stretch a bit too far back at the last few frames of its cycle.
Also i think that pulling the "thigh" up a bit towards her torso whenever she swings the backleg forward would bring a lot to it.
And if you decrease the size of the shadow as she approaches the ground/increase the size as shes going upwards that will also look quite awesome.
Apart from that, it looks spot-on.
I was really impressed by how you got her cutiemark to move with the leg!

actually looking at it now, those are all very valid points. I'll be going over this ani again and make some of those changes. I wasn't sure if the back leg was stretching too much or not, but another opinion always helps. So i think it's great that you happened to mention it as well =D
