Goooooooddddd.... Evening good evening good evening good evening good evening good evening good evening good evening good evening, and welcome to another iteration of /p/AD. We were formed by a bunch of /pony/folk wanting to have a little more fun and a little less seriousness, and have grown into a nice community filled with friends.

Today is a thread of celebrations. The weekend of chocolate bunnies is drawing to a close, and we invite you to revel in good cheer with us. Come on in, pick up a mug, and raise your glasses high. Sit around our table, where everyone discusses about everything. Everypony Welcome, Everypony Loved, Everypony Follows Ponychan Rules.

Today's topics are:

>/p/: Celebrations! We are in, albeit at the end of, Chocolate Rabbit Weekend! This is a weekend where we celebrate by giving chocolate to people. I could not have invented a better weekend myself. What celebrations can you come up with for anything at this time of year, real holidays or not?

>A: Traditions! We all have those little traditions and stuff. Giving chocolate eggs/rabbits to people is a nice little tradition with little backstory. What traditions do you follow at celebrations and stuff?

>D: Wishes! Chocolate Bunny Weekend just so happened to coincide with the birthday of Queen Elizabeth the Second this year! The 21st of April. Of course, it's also my birthday too. Wish your fellow posters a good year, for we will make this next one great!

Hey I gotta look through a couple houses a day. But at least I only have to glimpse the inside, most of the time. Not that the outside can't be bad too.

Can't imagine you were expecting much from a basement apartment.

And the cost of living varies place to place. 100 dollars goes further here than on the coast.

Welcome to /PONY/ AFTER DARK, where Pony is the Weapon. P/AD is a social thread and event that happens nightly right around this time, 10 PM CT for me, where the chatty side of /Pony/, and the rest of the site too if they want, come to relax, spazz out, and muck around. P/AD is open to Everyone, and new comers are Encouraged, within reason. P/AD almost never has a good theme, and tonight is no different.

Welcome to the official Third Installment of P/AD's Danger(ous) Days P/AD, which had no real second installment and is totally not influenced by a favorite album of mine. Don't mind that topic pic or that hacked P/AD title.

Shit is going down in the desert, and it's time to set things right again as the world crumbles under the weight of greedy corporations that have dissolved our governments and force everyone into souped up bodyguards or slaves working for below the minimum wage. It's Job Time!

> P - Tell us about first job you ever had. A job involving a salary and paycheck, that is. Food, cleanup, born billionaire? Tell us!

> A - For those who have had multiple jobs, what was your least favorite? What was so nasty about it? For those who have been stuck in the same dead-end job for years, what's your least favorite part about it?

> D - Like the above, but now your favorite job/thing about your job.

ahh, okay, well I got the game when it came out, and then had to put it on hold for a year or so. I only just started playing again about the beginning of feb. So I haven't completed my storyline as of yet. I do enjoy exploring out the maps, so I have that (I have legendary cartographer in gw - 3 continents and gwen)

The living story stuff is new to me and rather interesting atm.

I also got into WvW, which I'm finding a lot of fun. even if it is just running around in a giant blob spamming all skills and hoping not to die.

I'm not a big item farmer so I haven't done too much of that.

Some of the hearts are kinda dumb, but I like that I don't have to go hunting down a quest giver.

It's definitely not the same as gw. but it'll do.

It seems the fates have rendered the previous thread unpostable, It matters not. We will not let this world claim us without a fight, we will continue onward until the day comes that we will look back on our history and we will die proudly, knowing that the trials of life did not keep us from what we desired, what we needed, what made us happy...

Welcome to Fillychan, where everything Filly, Funtasia, or both, is what it’s all about. Whether you’re having high expectations for the show, are interested in learning more about it, or are just a random bypasser, we wish you welcome.

It’s basically a serial thread at Ponychan, and not really its own forum or board. For those who are primarily experienced with 4chan or general forums, quick step introductions are at >>1017061, and other than that, you’re free to post here and try to talk about whatever you find fitting.

The issue with Whimper (the OC) is that he's described as a bullhead (long story), which means his muscles are very defined. With Big Mac, you see his strength demonstrated, but no definition on his muscles. The only stallion that has definition is comedically huge and has very small hooves, which I can't use as a reference. Big Mac, as a child, doesn't look particularly strong and it's the appearance that makes the character a bullhead. Basically, I think I just need to sculpt out something final and then make a vector out of that. Can't keep changing it.

Alpha and Omega did get the wolves walking on two legs nicely, but the arms were definitely made for four-legged motion. So there is biped-to-quad switching, but not where they'd have human-ish motions quite yet. And yeah, the transforming would be what the corrective shapes are for.

The main difference between bird wings and fairy wings is that bird wings fold against the body, whereas fairy wings do not. So... using Rigify in Blender, I'd do fairy wings with a finger sample, and alicorn wings with an arm sample. Anatomical accuracy is just simpler to get right and keep track of.

(Twilight Sparkle:) "You can't fold your wings? How do you sleep?"

(Will:) "Pretty well, thank you."

Come to think of it, wouldn't it be cool if the Fillies shared rooms? Rose and Lynn bunking together, or Will and Cedric (ship ahoy!).

Another animation error that's a modeling error: eyelid movement. I just spent the better part of two hours trying to figure out a good way to make my Filly blink, and after another little run on the first trailer I can confirm with reasonable certainty that blinks are done with blend shapes aka shapekeys. That means a modeler has to grab the parts of the mesh and move them around to create the shapes, then program some bones to drive this deformation to make it easier to animate.

Two things typically go wrong here:
-shapes only interpolate linearly. This means that every point, even if it ends up forming a sphere (like an eyelid), will end up going along a straight line as it moves into position, which can lead to the surface of the eye becoming visible as they blink.

-the shapes don't mix well. Making a smile shape where the mouth opens slightly and having another shape to curl the upper lip that also opens the mouth can lead to some really weird distensions when added to a shape meant to actually open the mouth. Attentive character modelers will check if the shapes blend together well, or they'll just model full expressions and split those up across different areas of the mesh. For example, they can make an 'angry' face, copy that five times, then make it so each 'angry' only affects eyes, mouth, cheeks, that sort of thing.

One way around the first problem is to make several blend shapes as stopping points to approximate a spherical path. Another way around it is to overcompensate and make the eyelid really swell over so it never clips. See pic for possible example of such overcompensating on the right eye.

It also hard as nails to make a character blink in cartoon style, ie not having the upper lid rotate naturally. The cheat for that, I may save for a tutorial when I have the time ^^.

Good luck with your OC! Something to be said for just going ahead with a plan even if you're not sure how it will turn out.

It's a brand new season, and that means the return of literally everyone's favorite horses! That's right, Applejack and Rainbow Dash!

Whether they're making stupid decisions, sending their friends alone to walk through the evil death-forest, being a total jerk to their friends, or being total wusses in a big spooky castle, season 4 AJ and RD are already chock full of fun! I'm pretty sure we can all sympathize that covering yourself in bees is probably the most productive and important thing they could possibly be doing.

So here's to a new season, hopefully filled to the brim with apple horse and fast horse!

Welcome stranger, comrades and lurkers alike!

This is The Order of The Insomniacs, ready to accept and entertain the newest of people to the oldest of legends. Packed with exciting daily madness, your dose of unhinged chaos and of course the magical aura of this thing we call 'friendship'.

So why not introduce yourself? Make a few friends, relieve yourself of chronic boredom or even just chat along! There's a lot of oppurtunities to start up a conversation, so don't be shy! Whether be it spontaneous roleplay or your usual babbling, anything goes.

And remember, treat everyone with respect and maintain your manners.

Have a great day!

Greetings and blessings be upon you, [STROY THREAD CREATOR HERE], chosen by the heavens to unite your scattered posters. Oh mighty OP, you were the first to bring the Big Thread of Stroai’I under one solitary rule in 2011 AD. This was followed with the merging of all the remaining Stroy Threads under your standard. As the first OP of Stroai’I, you standardized the legal and posting systems and instituted the Stroy Thread Story Pact, an edict instituting stories. You ensured the continued unification and sovereignty of the thread by your strong laws and deeds, even after your death in 2074.

Oh wise and exalted OP, your people wish for a thread of their own once more and require an OP of unparalleled greatness! Will you answer their call and don the mantle of the Lion of /gala/? Will you post a thread that stands the test of autosage?

Welcome ladies and gents, ponies and…uh whatever else things you want to post as. This is /pony/ After Dark a serial thread that has recently not been made on time until like the previous one. Anyways there is usually some copy pasta that can be inserted here, but that’s no fun and making them up on the spot is much more interesting, when you can pretty much spout out random stuff and most of the time people probably skim over these anyways cause they are the same. Anyways this is called the Pseudo epic, because of word play and stuff, but in reality it’s not epic because epic is hard to pull off. Unless you are Weird Al


>P-Never being able to ask questions without immense introductions because for some reason, sweg, it’s hard. Anyways, Have you ever done anything that was so close to being epic, and then you failed miserably? If so, share that stuff because it’ll be funny.

>A-The second and third are much harder to think of…hmmm…What about any times that you were doing something so awful and pitiful you were about to call it quits and then something epic happened like some random miracle. (Doesn’t have to be real life, could be a video game or something)

>D-Lastly, and I’m almost certain it’s been used before, What epic crossover would you like to see between Ponies and some other thing? It has to be Ponies, I don’t care if you’ve said it before or not.

>Bonus-If you DID say it before, find the post that you did say it before in. You get some serious Rarara points if you can.~
