My Little Pony - Female Walk Cycle Vector Package by Nimaru My Little Pony - Female Walk Cycle Vector Package by Nimaru
I had no idea how popular the last set was going to be, but I learned a lot from the experience.

For this one, I want to FIRST make it clear that these are just my vector screen traces from the show so the art entirely belongs to Hasbro/Lauren Faust. That said, I took several hours to trace the cycle and clean it up as much as I could by just using screenshots.

This time, I included a whole package of materials:


  1. An animated gif of the full walk cycle

  2. The Photoshop file used to make the gif in which every layer is one frame of the walk cycle. You can use these Photoshop objects one at a time if you need just one pose or you can use them together if you want to do animation. Each layer is an Illustrator object so if you want to edit them, you can doubleclick the layer to send it back to Illustrator for edits.

  3. The original Illustrator file I used to make the traces. It contains the same data as the Photoshop file, but you can see and manipulate all of them at once. Note that the sizing will remain consistent between all files as much as I'm able.

  4. EDIT: By request, I've included a PNG file with all the poses on a dark grey background so they're easy to cut out and use for people who don't have Photoshop or compatible programs.




To download, use the download file link on the right. It's a ZIP file (about 20Mb)

If you want the run cycle (currently Illustrator only), it's here:

The Tail has to move with the pony or you need to alter the body the bit.

Hey, could you send me a .zip containing just the walk cycle screencaps from the show? I'm doing my own tracing work and my video player isn't working, so it would really same me some time! Nice work, by the way! One question: Why does the tail stub change every frame? I'd imagine you could just reuse that? But still, very good job!

Nimaru Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, the screencaps are in the included illustrator file. Can you open that?

I can, but what I really need is just the screencaps, and getting those out of the file would be quite hard. What episode did you get it from, and at what point?

PSD isn't compatible? According to the GIMP documentation it is.

Looking at it again, there's several problems with the sizing so I couldn't use these anyway.

Ack! I was working on the same thing (blanks anyway, not main cast). But Mine is a bit different so it will probably still be useful.

I STILL can't figure out how to (or if I even can) animate in my version of photoshop. Nonetheless, these vectors are very informative and will be a great help in reference for when the time comes for me to attempt my own animation. :)

Click "Window" then "Animate". You'll see a bar on the bottom and each box in the bar is one frame of the animation. There are several good Youtube tutorials about it
