Pixel Rarity by TylerLegrand Pixel Rarity by TylerLegrand
Rarity doesn't walk. She glides.

Three fun facts!

- She lifts her hooves off the ground by only a pixel. As a result, I often perceive her moonwalking.
- I mentioned that I copy my ponies' head throughout the frames. Rarity is obviously an exception, because she's so showy.
- Unfortunately I never bothered understanding how her tail is structured. I thought of it as simply three separate abstract shapes. She's all pretty abstract anyway, I guess.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental 
hospital, because she killed her mom and dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that the best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of you life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break the chain you will see a little dead girl in your room.

I'll probably sound pompous, so bear with me: I haven't been making pixel animation for much more than a month when I made this, but I HAVE been practicing animation for a decade before; its fundamentals apply to any medium. So I suggest you'd practice animation as a whole if you want to do something like this.

Oh I know about animating it. Sorry maybe my questions wasn't well put.
I've made animations before but I'm always trying to make them small but high res. How did you make it small and pixled but visible?
I mean...is it as simple as doing the entire animation on a small scale and then reducing resolution or is it more then that?
For instance I made an animation I was trying to use as an avatar so I animated in on a 5X5 but I wanted it to be high res so I made it 300dpi. But for some reason I can never make it look good once I upload it, you know?
So, I guess a better way to phrase the question is
"The animation looks slightly pixeled (like a pixel doll) but it still looks good. is making it look that way as simple as small scale/small res?

Uuuhh a small scale, or dimensions, or image parameters or however one could call it, is exactly the same as a small resolution and vice versa. For example 640x480 pixels is a really small screen resolution for your computer. Comparatively, my 50x50 pixels ponies will always be TINY in resolution. It's so small nobody thinks about using the term 'resolution'. (It's usually applied to screen size)

I don't shrink the resolution (or dimensions etc.) of my GIFs, I simply always draw at the scale at which I intend to show it. That's probably the best way to do it, especially for pixels. If anything, I crop my images when I'm done for the larger GIFs.

Using dpi is only relevant if you plan to print an image. Dpi stands for Dots Per Inch, and inches only apply to images on paper or something physical. Using 300dpi simply means that if you printed out your picture, it'd be smaller (but sharper) than if you had used 100dpi. It'd still be the same size on your computer. 'Clarity' isn't affected because the image still has the same number of pixels, and the pixels haven't grown or shrunk, a pixel is always constant, like an atom.

As for making it look 'good', I guess once again all I can say is that experience and practice is the answer.

Dpi is the same as pixels per inch and you can reduce pixels to...well..pixelate something. The term dpi and ppi mean the same thing.
In school we use 72 dpi in videos so dpi isn't just for print.
But don't worry about it. I'm not sure you understood what I was asking but it's alright. Thanks anyway.

Thing is, you don't reduce anything to pixelate stuff.

You draw it pixel by pixel!

Moonwalking Rarity, oh god.

I really enjoy how you made each pony have their own unique way of walking.
It takes quite a bit more effort to draw new sprites for every pony, as opposed to just copying a template and tweaking it, but the end result is just that much better looking.
