Posing Pony Puppets for Still Images - A TutorialUpdate 6/25/2013: Yay, images are back up! Woohoo!
Hello guys! If you’ve been to the MLP Forums, more specifically the Ask a Pony forum, you’ve probably gone to my Ask Rainbow Dash thread. It uses pictures of Rainbow Dash, made using things called pony puppets. This tutorial will teach you how to pose these puppets for your own pictures.
First, what are pony puppets?
Pony puppets are objects in Adobe Flash that are used as characters in My Little Pony-related animations. They’re made of many movable parts that are put together in a process called “rigging”. This will likely be familiar to people who work with 3D animation. We are not going over rigging, however. That’s for the riggers to do. We’re going to be posing a premade Rainbow Dash puppet.
1. Setting up
You are going to need a couple of things to get started.
Adobe Flash (The free 30-day trial will do). Download it at
AndromedaAmongst the darkened skies
Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.
Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence
Right now or for all eternity such as us.
Shooting stars make us joyful while
Terminator is an otherworldly spectacle
Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…
