request shop (Closed to catch up) Humble Hymn's Desktop Ponies Sprites


Humble Hymn

(edited)

So I come to the forums every now and then, and I always want to see what I can do for any of you. I also believe myself to make decent sprites as Desktop Ponies

Here's some of my OC examples with the basic stances (I may post more):                                         

BASE_PONY-Humble-Hymn-PS-stand-shy-left.gif.608e1079dfbe82bd59124942131bf98b.gifBASE_PONY-Humble-Hymn-PS-shy-left-2x2-px.gif.67015f62c9b83c30d8a1416106f03ae5.gifBASE_PONY-Humble-Hymn-PS-flying-shy-left-2x2-px.gif.775a953153c3bdd4c463eddc164b0f2a.gifBASE_PONY-Humble-Hymn-PS-sleeping-left.gif.544cfdc4de38203b9a0bf3eec5c77188.gif 

I would still need time to work on other elements that would come with Desktop Ponies (clothes, body features, props, other species, advanced animations, etc.) but i'd be willing to try to improve if anyone would like a sprite of their own.

Best ways I could think of to help make your sprite:

  • A picture to work off of, with as much detail you are able to acquire
  • A description of what you would like should a picture not fully suit your needs
  • If need be, a base or example of a previously made sprite that would help both of us (best place i believe is Deviant Art)
  • The style/amount of movement stances you would desire (standing, walking, flying, sleeping etc.)
  • if the cutie mark (or anything else) would be flipped, do you want it mirrored, or the same image on both sides
  • decent availability ( If I have any questions or concerns, I'd like to be able to work them out. I also might send private rough drafts before the final product(s) are posted on this shop)

Sprites can be made from "1x1" pixels following the relative size of most desktop ponies, though I have been so far using 2x2 pixels for requests to allow me to go into more detail. If you'd rather have a "original style" pony of 1x1 pixels, or have a little more detail of 2x2 pixels, please state so if you desire one or the other. 

Most of my templates come from the real pros on Deviant Art. There's also a Beginner's Guide to using Desktop Ponies there.

Feel free to ask questions should there be any issues

Basic Desktop Ponies Usage Steps:

Spoiler

1: Go to Desktop Ponies thread on ponychan, and search for "Full Download", other links may help but aren't needed right now. 

(I'm not affiliated with this program itself or any of those who may be apart of it, I'm just here to help "spread it's good word")

Download should commence safely.

2.Once the Download finishes, insure you know it's location on your computer, to access it's useful functions, it may be under something like:                                                                      C:\Users\(NAME)\Downloads\Desktop.Ponies.v(xxxxxx) in file explorer (At least it is for me)

  (I don't know if all computer downloads work the same, I just go off my experience of Windows computers)

3.(Isn't fully needed but helps greatly, step 6 may do this for you) If you want to add new pony gifs into the program and keep them together, select the Desktop.Ponies program in your file folders, then search for "Ponies" as a folder. This should bring up all possible ponies that could walk around your screen. To add new ponies, make a new folder in this section with your new pony name. They should all end up in alphabetical order. Select the newly made folder and add ALL gifs of that pony you want to use into it.

(I'm not familiar with all the additional functions, as I just try to make gifs...)

4. Now Start Application, select "Desktop Ponies", icon with Twilight Sparkle that says "application" under "Type". You may want to create a desktop shortcut, if that is easier.

5. As the Program opens select,  "Pony Editor". This is where you get to test out the ponies and of course, edit them..

6. To Make Your Pony Come Alive(ish):

  • if you followed step 3, scroll down the alphabetical list of ponies until you find the one you're looking for
  • select "create new pony" and enter the pony's name

Once selected/created, click "new behavior", then:

  • Give a name of the behavior (I suggest starting with basic standing if you have one, as the gif used to represent your pony is the first one, and the majority of the desktop ponies are shown as their standing gif) 
  • Select the correct left and right gif from the pony's gif location, (add in new ones now or search elsewhere, its up to you). you may set the gif's duration as it's total duration, but may not alays be best
  • Add movement speed, if the gif should move, default moving speed to set would be 1.00
  • If you want the gif to move, select under "movement" for the correct one (all is best to start off, as it randomly will make your pony move around in all directions, one at a time depending on each duration)
  • Set the max duration. if not yet set already, this will be needed to have your gif last. 
  • add chance to occur if there are multiple behaviors (one way to start is to set the percentages evenly depending on amount of behaviors: 2=50.00% for each, 3=33.33%, 4=25.00%, etc)

Of course there are more functions, like talking, follow/go to, effects, etc, but the functions already given should be enough for basic desktop pony editing.

7. If Ready and all is good for now, click "save", then close the window (don't worry, it shouldn't close the whole program). Now either:

  • Scroll through the alphabetical list of ponies
  • Use the pony filter

Once you find your pony(s), add the desired amount of ponies then, finally, click "GIVE ME PONIES!"

P.S. if I missed anything or need to give more info, plz say, I'll see what I can do :D

For now I'm doing 3 Requests at a time to see where things go from here, as I'm unsure of my commitment capabilities to this, though I will do what I can, but sorry in advance if things don't turn out right. Requesting a Single Stance at a time would be preferred for now.

Perhaps this will improve in the future, but for now, I just want to continue testing how I can do this shop better. 

List to Catch Up on:

1: @Emerald<3 - Complete

2: @Salsastrings - Complete

3: @Zero

(I'll try to improve this header should need be)

Ooh! Ooh!

I want one, please!

@Humble Hymn may I please have one of my OC Emerald Heart?

Can she just be sitting down, then look at the camera, then wink?

Please.

Of course I can work on Emerald Heart, though I never did get the chance to make a head turn gif (as all my other projects only needed to face to one direction), I'm interested to see what I'll turn up

Np, these gifs then to be around the same size, and I'll try to insure it, Just remember if you want you can also use your pony gif anytime and anywhere on your pc, as long as you use  Desktop Ponies.

Wow, these are awesome! :o

If I might request one as well, could you make Nyx (from Pen Stroke's "Past Sins")?

Image result for mlp nyx vestImage result for mlp nyx vestImage result for mlp nyx cutie mark<- cutie mark

Could you use the eyes (and lack of glasses) from the one on the left and the vest and headband from the one on the right, unless you'd rather leave them off.

I don't really have any pose/action in mind, so maybe simply trotting.

Alright eyes from left, no glasses, headband and vest from right.

do you want wings hidden as well, with cutie mark showing?

Young creatures are new to me but I'm up to the challenge

@Salsastrings here is Nyx:

This was meant to hopefully be relative to the size of an average young horse designed for the Desktop Ponies Program. I hope it fits to your liking still.

Oh my gosh that is awesome!!! :wub: Thank you so much @Humble Hymn! Words can't describe my joy right now. :pinkie:
