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)

Remember how you said you'd believe Derpy would watch the lamp for hours...?

I can watch her watching that lamp for hours...

You captured her PERFECTLY...

YOU WERE THE ONE WHO MADE THIS?! I love this video! It's one of my all time favorites! So glad I found it :D
Yes that would be me! :D I wish these were easier to make, I'm not particularly good at animating (it's really fiddly) and there isn't much animated stuff out there for us. Having said that, there are some amazing animators in the community who have put out some awesome MLP stuff. Their stuff looks like it came straight from the show. Really impressive!

You probably get these requests all the time, but do you think you would ever do a screensaver of Twilight sparkle reading a book? (maybe a small fire in the background) I think that would be a fun screensaver.

Alternatively a balcony view of Equestria (trains coming and going, clouds swishing through cliffs of the canter lot mountains) as the princesses take turns every few minutes raising and lowering the sun and moon. Now that would be an epic screensaver...
