If you put her in front of a lava lamp, I like to think she'd do this for hours on end.

Now with audio! courtesy of ~ArtisticRender97 : :iconartisticrender97: who has done an amazing job of adding the much-needed dimension of sound! the music is Thomas Newman's Bubble Wrap! Also known as part of the Wall-E soundtrack.


***DERPY IS ALSO A SCREENSAVER***: Clicky for DropBox link (Windows installer)

Click for flat .SCR file

Mac version: [replacement coming soon! Sorry :(]

Mac version is rather temperamental (sorry, best I could do) but it coughs into life on my system, so hopefully it'll work for you.


Okay, so here's my latest animation snippet. Oh man, did it suck trying to cram this thing onto DeviantArt. Did you know you need permission to upload 'films'? Because I didn't until about an hour ago.

I am rubbish at Flash, which I've had to use as a stopgap, so, there are no fancy preloading bars or anything (if it runs like poop on your computer, I'm sorry, I will upload a YouTube mirror in a bit). EDIT: Here we go, YouTube mirror.

It's still a draft, so no sound and quite an 'unfinished' feel (and rubbish compression quality thanks to shoehorning it into a Flash container) but hey, it's been a couple of weeks now and I'm desperate to share something. :3

It's the intro scene of a much larger project which I'm working on. No ETA for that, but I hope it will be awesome... You know, when it's finished. In ten years. Pfft.

I'll be upping more experimental animations from time to time while I figure things out, if people are interested in seeing more snippets and bits and bobs.

*Screensaver is a slightly lower frame rate, higher res, no audio, few mistakes fixed while I was at it. Not amazing quality (free tool used to convert a freshly made SWF) but should look okay on 16:9 monitors and whatnot. Let me know what you think! (Should be virus free, I'm not responsible if your PC catches fire blah blah)

I used to have a lava lamp.

I have no clue where it is anymore.

So much awesome. Derpy, I mean, Mailmare looks so serine looking at her Lava Lamp. I can't stop watching even though I have several lava lamps I was just staring at myself.

Might I ask, what's the song you used?

Does this work with Windows 8? It works on my windows 7 laptop, but with 8 all I get is a black screen and the music and sound plays.

It very well might not - sorry! I need to find some software which can properly make screensavers for both windows and mac. Free solutions exist but as you can see they're a bit naff :D

Actually the problem was in my power settings. It was set to turn off the screen at the same time that the screensaver was set to activate. I changed it and now it works.

Nice animation, but my Pony Destruction Trainer is beginning to activate:


The average Pony is too lacking in intelligence to understand the Lava Lamp due to it's non-magic power source. One will stand before it for hours on end attempting to magically control it oblivious to the aformentioned non-magical power source. Kill them while they're distracted!
