  1. HELLO everypony! I know that not all of us animators have Adobe Flash CS6, so, being the very kind person I am(don't laugh at me), I've taken it upon myself to convert ALL of the Double Rainboom Pony Puppets, plus Celestia and Luna, to the Flash 8 version! Which basically means anyone with any version of Adobe Flash can animate with them! I went through a lot of trouble downloading all of the trial versions of Adobe Flash to accomplish this, so I hope this helps some potential animators! Download them here! http://tinyurl.com/flash8puppets The puppets include: Twilight Sparkle Rarity Applejack Pinkie Pie Rainbow Dash Fluttershy Spike Pointy Ponies/BBBFF Style Ponies Applebloom Scootaloo Sweetie Belle Princess Celestia Princess Luna Derpy Hooves Lyra Heartstrings Bon Bon Vinyl Scratch Doctor Whooves Roids Rage Colgate Berry Punch That's 21 different puppets, folks. AKA a lot of time taken out of my life. x-x It was worth it, though. Enjoy! <3
  2. I finally watch the most infamous - I mean "first" - fan made episode of My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic. Does it live down to the hype? To subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=TheSecondOpinion11
  3. 200 subscribers. Holy crap, that's an amazing number. To me, it's incredible that I got to a number like this. Thank you all so much! To celebrate, we're going to take a look at the other fanwork in what I consider a duo in bad MLP FiM fan projects, right next to Dusk's Dawn; Double Rainboom.
  4. Double Rainboom gets a lot of hate, but is it justified? I say yes and to illustrate exactly why, I made the video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dKPpn61ymc
  5. flamingo1986 has released a promotional poster stating that he is making a FULL LENGTH fan-made episode of mlp fim which will be completed by 'fall 2012' "That’s right. An entire episode. Going by the title “Double Rainboom”, the episode will be released this upcoming Fall in six parts – each one uploaded a week apart from the other. Through the combined efforts of bronies across the internet and other students from the Savannah College of Art & Design.The episode will feature a full orchestral score, studio-quality sound effects, voice actresses for the ponies, and 100% show-accurate animation." 2 minute episode preview: Promotional poster: http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/090/8/a/double_rainboom_promotional_poster_by_flamingo1986-d4ujkjk.png
  6. So, normally, I’d take the time to write up an extensive review, give you a great deal of thoughts about the plot and its various intricacies, as well as all of that good stuff. But for once, I can’t, because there’s nothing to analyze. The sad truth with Double Rainboom is that it has no plot to speak of. The characters are mere shadows of their true selves, barely present at all. When they speak, they sound like one dimensional stereotypes. There’s a completely unnecessary and absurd crossover that serves no purpose whatsoever. The voice work ranges from middling to fairly close. The references everywhere were not only stupid, but they were insulting. The only saving grace is the animation, but even there while it’s really gorgeous and does a lot of fascinating things… all it seems to be is there. What little story might exist is sacrificed so the animation can take its time and show off everything about itself. I get that this was Zachery Rich’s college project, that it was made for an art school and as such was made for the animation. I get that. The problem is that the animation is pointless without anything for it to drive. Without a plot for it to enhance, it’s meaningless. There are so many scenes you could point to in the actual show where the animation is used to good effect. Things like a particularly dynamic action scene, or facial expressions contorting to show anger and characterization beyond just the dialogue. There the animation is useful for something. But Double Rainboom has none of that. It’s pretty to look at for thirty minutes; that’s all it is. If you choose to watch it, go into it expecting nothing but a pretty art show, and you’ll be fine. If you go looking for anything else, you’re going to feel disappointed and outraged.
  7. If you guys have a keen eye, or wanted to see Double Rainboom, well, I hate to break it to you, but it just got taken down on youtube and his website. Now, I know you are saying 'SHIFT. WHY. WHAT IS HAPPENING. WHY. SHIFT EXPLAIN EVERYTHING.' Well buckle up children, because i'm going to show you an image that will explain EVERYTHING! In short... not to jump to any conclusions, but Zachary Rich is looking kind of jerk-y right now. I want to punch him. Seriously, what about all of those people who worked long and hard on this? Do they get no credit? Is it like Rich thinks Double Rainboom was a complete flop and wants everyone to forget about it and start on a clean state? What an asshole. Ugh. I am disgusted. At least we have a million other reuploads. Discuss. I need to cry in a corner. and talk about how true tail is going to flop
  8. I've been trying to think of something to do with the fancy microphone that I got for the youtube videos that my roommate and I were doing. I wanted to make a music video of a semi-original song that I was making, but I can't make it sound right. I want to build my confidence and skill, before I take off and start doing my own stuff. I really like the ending credits song from Double Rainboom, so I figure why not cover that. I'm going to use the original as the base for my cover, and slowly add and take away bits until it's completely my own. My question to you, good brony: if you are interested, would you like me to just give written updates via this blog, or would you like me to put attachments on the blog, so you can actually hear how it's coming along?
  9. Now, before I start, note that I type OOC in Dark Gray like this. Thread-related info and stuff inside the spoiler, to avoid wasting space. Hi! Rainbow Dash here! Ask me things! I'm in a good mood today!
  10. I know what you're all thinking. "WHAT WHY?! Why would you ask such a question?" Well here's why. I was just lurking on /mlp/ and I found someone who didn't like Double Rainboom threaten to leave the fandom because of it. I know it sounds ridiculous, and that's why I only rarely go to /mlp/. If I'm bored and in the mood to laugh at them, than I'll lurk the place. Here are my quick thoughts on Double Rainboom: I liked it. It wasn't spectacular, and it was full of fan-service, and the story derailed once it got to the PPG crossover, but I wasn't expecting it to be anything great. It did have it's flaws, but it's not worth leaving the fandom over. My question is why would someone leave the fandom just because a over-hyped fan project ended up disappointing them? Do they not understand what happens in fandoms. You're always going to get crappy fanfics, crappy videos, and even crappy fans. Just because ONE fan didn't impress them, they're just going to leave the fandom? That's ridiculous! Than again, I've never understood why people leave fandoms anyways. Sure, even if you lose interest in the show, you still have the fan made stuff. And if you lose interest in that too.... well, I guess that is a good reason to leave. As long as you don't harass the people who haven't left, I have no problem with you leaving. tl;dr- Some guy on /mlp/ threatened to leave the fandom because they didn't like Double Rainboom. And this place is SO much better than /mlp/.
  11. The only thing I didn't like about Double Rainboom was that Pinkie Pie didn't take Rainbow Dash to more parallel universes. There, that's my review. --- Seriously though. No matter how good something is. Someone out there will hate it. Also opinions. “Oh, it’s too original and weird.” “Or oh it’s too normal and not original .” What do you want people?
  12. Been a horrible, horrible blogger the past few months; almost nothing at all going on. I'm afraid I simply haven't found the interest or time to write out any more DeviantART art review pieces, and I also never get around to blogging about anything else. Who knows, maybe that can change soon. In the meantime, here's a blog referring to my thoughts on the long-awaited installment of Double Rainboom, the first full-fledged MLP:FiM episode created by the fanbase. Enjoy and whatnot~ Source: Double Rainboom
  13. If you haven't noticed from the text below, the reviews are getting a revamp! For the best, of course. I will only now be doing episodes which I either think are amazing which were not well-received, or episodes I didn't like that everyone else seemed to. Which means that even though I loved Magic Duel, and would love to talk about it, I won’t due to majority of the fanon liking it. Judging by what I'm reviewing now, you can probably tell this won't only be consistent to episodes. Luckily, I've already been attacked for my opinion on this! So obviously we’re in for a treat with controversial opinions! Yay! Animation As I suspected, the animation in this is superb. The effects are nice, and it’s almost up to show quality. Almost. Well, you weren't expecting it to be up there, right? Like I said, still superb. Even the simple difference in between dimensions are appreciated and the simplistic thought animations are always lovely. In fact; one of my favorite points of the show in the season two finale. Plot For as good as the animation is, and that obviously being a large plus for the whole thing and most of the point for it being made, the plot is... Well... Not good. First of all, in the beginning we see Rainbow being a jerk. Stealing what Twilight has been working on for almost her entire life. Rainbow Dash is not this much of a jerk. I mean, come on! Rainbow may be competitive. She may be a jerk sometimes. Heck. She may be the meanest pony we see on a regular basis as a protagonist. But, as established in season 3 (See Sleepless in Ponyville) she also cares about her friends. She is also the element of loyalty. So why is she acting like this (Spoilers: It’s bad writing.). Next, there’s the pacing. At about the 20 minute mark, Rainbow suddenly goes into another dimension! The Powerpuff Girl dimension...! Uh... Hi? I understand this is a fan made thing. But: This was worked up more then any episode from the actual show, per obvious reasons. So, if you are giving it a break because of that, you aren’t critiquing it well. On topic: How does that even work?! Is it cute? Yes. Is it funny? Meh. Does it make sense? Lolno. It isn’t explained, at all. You can give any reason, but unless it’s clearly stated, your reason is invalid. While I nice premise, it’s executed so poorly, and so late that there’s no point. Especially since more then half the episode is just Rainbow flying around Ponyville. Cos why not? Oh, and it’s resolved far too quickly. Rainbow really doesn’t have to deal with it. Not to mention, if Twilight could have just remade the potion, why was it such a big deal Rainbow used it? Also; a heads up for any fanfic writers or someone who wants to make something like this, centering around a single character does alienate your potential fans. Highly. Humour Eh. It appears I’m the only one here that didn’t laugh. Once. Like I said before; some bits are decently funny. Emphasis on the decency. Maybe it’s due to me not having watched PPG or not having watched ANY shows from Cartoon Network (We don’t get the channel standard where I live), but that’s no excuse. You should never just rely on references for humour. For example; remember when Loki came down in his weather balloon? (Obscure reference FTW!) If you know what I’m talking about, that’s funny. If you don’t, you’re confused. Highly. And just because everyone is laughing around you, doesn’t mean you find the thing they’re laughing at funny as well. Conclusion Firebolt! You’re not allowed to have a negative opinion on a fan made pony episode! How dare you?! Well, I am being harsh on it, as everyone else is being far too nice to it. Still; it’s not the best thing ever, or what it was worked up to be. Watch it, as you’re missing out if you don’t. It really is a nice work even if just for the visuals. If you hate bad plot, however, then you won’t be having a fun time, as Double Rainboom does not follow a simple plot diagram. Not good, not bad, Double Rainboom get’s a 5/10, being nice to it due to being fan made.
  14. Without further ado, here are my thoughts on Double Rainboom. I really enjoyed the animation because, it really appealed to me when I got to saw Lauren Faust's old works on the cartoon shows that I used to watch as a kid. Even though the plot and story were pretty well, nonexistent I wouldn't worry too much about that. But, whoever didn't see it yet. Ignore this. Overall, I would say that I give it a 9.0/10
  15. So, we've all gone and watched FlamingoRich's biggest project, Double Rainboom, right? Everyone seems to have varying opinions on it, yet only mine matters, so sit down and shut up. ... Nah, I'm only joking. I just wanted to let everyone know what I thought, because I know deep down inside, everyone cares about my opinion. No joke. So, let's begin. CAUTION: SPOILERS AHEAD Animation So, the animation. Personally, I haven't seen many pony videos, but this was the best animation I've seen in terms of- well, everything pony. My favorite part of the visuals were the special effects(the Double Rainboom was beautiful ) Like I said, the animation was pretty good, yet it still wasn't completely show accurate. The example that keeps appearing in my mind is when Twilight says "Careful; it might be dangerous!" The way she moves her hoof during that clip doesn't look like anything the show would do; it looks like she's having a muscle spasm in slow motion. Basically, the animation was decent, the special effects were amazing, but the ways the ponies moved weren't 100% show accurate. 23/30 points Plot What. The. Heck. This episode was supposed to be about how Rainbow Dash destroys Ponyville because of her amazing Double Rainboom! All of a sudden she's with the Powerpuff Girls? I mean, I have nothing against the PPG, but I never watched it. (Though from what I gathered from the episode, Bubbles is my favorite character, hands down) Sure, I understand that this is a fan made episode, and references and memes are guaranteed, but an entire half of the episode is just about the PPG chasing Rainbow Dash around? That's lazy writing, and it seemed like it was nothing but filler content, just so they could make it half of an hour. All in all, the plot was a mess of a tornado on crack and steroids. I thought they could do a better job here. 10/25 points Music The music was, to say the least, 100% amazing. Nothing less. Probably something more. I absolutely love the msuic. I have no complaints there whatsoever. 15/15 points Other Humor Given that this was an entire episode created by the fandom, I expected a lot more that would make me laugh. There were two, maybe three scenes that even got a smile out of me. Scootaloo crashing into the chicken sign, Derpy Hooves and the pots, and the PPG's reactions to Rainbow Dash. (Bubbles :wubs: ) 7/10 points Timing I'm going to be honest, the timing in this episode was pretty bad. The entire time, scenes that should've taken a few seconds felt like they took minutes! The entire thing was dragged out. 3/10 points Cast There were what, four background ponies? And what happened to the other three of the Mane 6? There should've been more ponies, in my opinion. MOAR PONEES. 3/5 points Feel You know how MLP episodes give you that "Oh man, I can't wait to see what happens next! This episode is really good!"? Well, if not, that's how I feel, but this episode gave me none of that feeling. 2/5 points Final Verdict: 63/100 Points Rating: Okay Be sure to leave your vote above! Mine doesn't matter here.
