[PONY SFM Tutorial] Ponies in Socks (a.k.a. bonemerging)
DOWNLOAD SOCKS AND PANTIES: http://beardeddoomguy.deviantart.com/art/DL-Socks-and-panties-403628380 In this tutorial I am teaching you how to add accessories to your pony. These accessories come from props, hats, clothing, etc modeled for your pony. This is a simple _give your pony some warm socks_ approach, but can be applied by advanced users to bonemerge other props.

Lets Push Ponies #1:  Building a Custom Male OC
Welcome to Lets Push Ponies where I do stuff without any form of intended tutorial format, but you still may learn. On this episode, we make a requested male OC. Note: I will no longer take requests that are not done through the commission widget on my DA page http://the4thaggie.deviantart.com. If you don't see the section on my page, that means that I don't have open commission slots. If you want to request something to be made, you can check out this post in the SFM Ponies DA group. http://sfm-ponies.deviantart.com/journal/individuals-who-take-pony-OC-model-request-423049308 Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/the4thaggie DArt: http://the4thaggie.deviantart.com Tumblr: http://the4thaggie.tumblr.com

[PONY SFM] Rainbow Dash Wing and Facial Animation
Just playing around with animating in Source FilmMaker. This time, I animate a sequence for wings, and then duplicate throughout clip, and do some facial animation. I should have bobbed the model in animation, but that thought came 1/2 way through rendering. Using Gmod Ponies 3.1.

High Poly Sculpting for Low Poly Source Models
Watch as I go through the process of sculpting detail on sphere to turn it into an organic looking rock. I use Mudbox to transform my sphere by sculpting on the scale of 1.6 million polygons and then transferring that as a normal map into Maya. Then I just go about making the model like normal. The actual process is only 1.5 hours long in this video, but I also prep and stuff at the end there.

Hotdogs, Horseshoes, and Hand Grenades (Oculus Touch Gameplay)
Warning: Captured footage of me playing this game with HMD, so its going to move around with my head. Sorry in advance. Also, took 4 tries before I realized how to capture the audio ok... Looks like the video displaying to monitor (what was being recorded), is not exactly center to my aim/POV so you cant see down sights like I do :(

3D Modeling Timelapse: RR Dash Guitar #2
No stream this time. Wasn't feeling real uppity because of Robin Williams passing away today (time of upload), so I just modeled and timelapsed. It's tedious retopology matching up the round end of the guitar to the main body. I'll have to reduce and stuff as I go along, but for now I am trying to make sure all edgeloops are edgeloops.

Something I worked on to build up more skills in complex animation. It's animated in such a way to be made into an animated GIF. I couldn't get normal methods to make it a GIF, and I don't have PS Extended. I'll cross that hurdle when I get over it. I want to fine tune the animation a bit, add ear movements, and some mouth animation. Thanks to the folks over on SFM-Ponies on Deviantart for the model.

Lets Push Ponies - Smooth Hair Animation
WATCH IN 1080P60 for super smooth timelapse! I was asked to release a timelapse for what I did to smooth out hair animations on my current video project. So here it is. First half is taking the jigglebones for the hair, baking them, and then using the pre-baked animation as a guide for smooth animation. Using the smooth and playhead tools, I get the rough spots out and make it a bit more smooth while still having a bit of movement in there for "realistic" animation. The second half (or after the first four shots I fix the hair), I work on smoothing and fine tuning things (like supporting movements). If you just want to learn about animating hair, the first 15-20min are for you. The rest is bonus material. I hope you like sexy jazz. The music compilation video I used as a backing track failed to source artists, so shall I since I have no bloody idea. This music fits the video, and it is also a consolation to the viewers who don't really like MLP. Thank you for bearing me animating ponies, so here's some fandom-neutral music :D. This is roughly 3 hours of animating squeezed into 40min. I chose to set the maximum speed up rate to 5x speed. It turned out amazing in 60fps. I used OBS to record, and I forgot I set it to 60FPS before. Turned out awesome!

3D Rigging Timelapse:  EqG Base 1
Model created by CreatorOfPony.deviantart.com Music by Flaedr from Project Horizons Soundtrack I'm slowly making progress on the EqG base rig and skin weighting. This is about an hour of work. I'm an amateur rigger, so I've been learning on the fly. The challenge is what keeps me going because the 10's of hours I am putting into this need a reason. Anyway, most of my minor updates are posted to my deviantart.
