Stock - Female Pony Run Cycle Vector by Nimaru Stock - Female Pony Run Cycle Vector by Nimaru
When I first started doing pony vector art, I used a lot of traces just like this, but I've learned a lot since then and wanted to make an improved set. This time, I'm going to be more methodical and try to get the basic pieces so I can make art and such easier in the future. This is the first in that series. The full trace of the 8 frame female pony run cycle.

The file I uploaded is the original Illustrator vector file so you can recolor, re-position or do anything else you want. I want everyone to have it so we can make great pony art together :)

More will be coming soon.

IMPORTANT EDIT: For those who haven't realized yet, the image you see here is just the JPG preview of the Illustrator file that you can download. If you have Illustrator or a compatible program, you can see the original traces I did and modify each pose. Each one has a separate head, legs, and such so you can custom anything you want!

ALSO: Art style by Lauren Faust, pony poses and such copyright by Hasbro. I didn't realize this would make front page and a lot of people seem not to know that this is a My Little Pony blank.

EDIT AGAIN: Some folks have been animating this. Here's a gif: cybertronian-researcher.tumblr…

EDIT 2015.08.19 - I have a zip file with lots of resources that you can download. It wouldn't let me upload it so I had to rename it to an illustrator file, but if you open it as an archive or rename it to a .zip file, it should work.

Did you download the zip file? It has each layer separated in layers in the photoshop file. There's a GIMP version too if you don't have Photoshop.

I just updated it so when you download the AI file, it's actually a zip file with everything. Rename the file to .zip and open it and you should have what you need.

Holy crap! Thank you so much! I've been looking for a base like this! I've been wanting to make a couple running icons for my OCs and all I use is Inkscape so it's had to trace a pixel base in inkscape. I will be using this!

OH AI. file, awesome, much easier! :D
but one question, how much time (seconds) it is between each pose?
Reply
:iconnimaru:
Nimaru Featured By Owner May 6, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's not seconds, but frames. Each one is one frame in a loop. I'm not sure how long the total loop was, but probably only a second or less.

This helped me make my own animated run cycle. I was wondering what was wrong with it, but it looked like I was trying to make him walk instead of run.

I might be able to sketch of my ponyself into them and then throw it on an online gif maker... it would mostly take time just to make them all XD
Maybe a project in the near future

I can ask to use your drawing as and model? I'll not use it! I promise that. But I'm really bad at drawing ponys and needed something to have a base... Can I use it?

Of course you can! I actually have a Youtube video that encourages people to use base models like this (and it's why I made this in the first place) :)

Animation?? What program do you use??? (And Do you have to 'draw' it On the program, or just open up a picture from the pony generator?)


Sorry for the questions, Im soooo lost with animating Cry run

Lol I used Adobe Flash CS3 Professional, and I'm sure I could've opened a picture from the generator, but I'm too prideful for that lol.

Here's the finished product:

Whoa! Thats Neat! i read the mlp.wiki animation, and it said they created mlp using Adobe Flash 8
So i installed it, but i have no idea how to use it..
so i did frames instead.. and this is how it turned out.. www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxCV8P… Eh, 
Does Flash CS3 Have a free trial?

Phoenix-of-Starlight Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I'm not sure. I use the program at my school, but when I look around I don't have much luck finding it online. :( I know that anime studio 8 is a good program too, but I'm still learning how to use that one lol. How much was Flash 8?

:icongalaxysnow:
GalaxySnow Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I didn't buy it, i had this free trial, and on the free trial, i couldn't figure anything out, so i got a free online code that lead me to ''Flash 8 Proffesional'' While the free trial was basic, im still trying to figure it out..

Ah, I see. Well, I wish you luck in that! I wish I could help more, but Flash 8 has to be more complicated than CS3. :U

MS Paint doesn't have a timeline or a pen tool.
Unless you decided to make it a .png sequence, no.

Is that okay?

Hello! If you have time, would you be able to create a PSD version? I have Paint Tool SAI, which only accepts PSD files. If not, that's okay. You've probably worked hard enough on this one. :)
