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: [link]

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  Hobbyist Traditional 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?

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

Yeah. I'll do some more researching on CS3. Thanks for the info on CS3 :D

Is there an MS paint version? I don't have any fancy kind of things like photoshop....

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

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. :)

I'm not sure what to say. When I click the download link, it downloads the zip file. Are you using IE? Chrome or Firefox would be better if so.

Not sure. But I made it so it would be easy to cut out with the PNG file with the grey background.
