My Little Pony: The Return of Chaos Teaser Trailer
Games Art project, 3rd Year (Uni) :bulletwhite: Rendered in 3ds Max; Edited in After Effects
YouTube Link

The teaser trailer for game based on the "Return of Harmony" story-arc from season 2, episodes 1 and 2, of Friendship is Magic. The game would feature a darker and more fleshed-out take on the events of the episodes, while retaining the family-friendly ethos and stylisation of the series. I must stress that this is a trailer for something that won't be made. This is it!
Yes the resolution is small, but due to the abundance of reflectivity and ray-casting, rendering the 40-odd seconds of footage took just under 100 solid hours, with 5-7 minutes per frame, 25fps. Also, if Celestia seems a little static, an element of the project brief was to not use any character animation.

All of the models and textures were made by me, apart from:
KP-ShadowSquirrel's Celestia Model (the Statue was also edited from the Twilight model)
BeckieRGB's Nightmare Moon Defeated vector and Discord's First Defeat vector
MisterAibo's Elements of Harmony vector

Featuring the fantastic voice-acting of:
NDLMongoose as Discord, and
PrincessRil as Princess Celestia

Again, this video advertises a fictional product and will never be made.

@00:28Thank you very much :3
I'd love to revisit this, fix some things, maybe re-render in a higher resolution... but it took nearly 100 solid hours to render this one, so... eech :iconnervouspinkieplz:

You did all of this by yourself? :O ( I mean, besides the credits you gave to other people lol)
Wow! You did a great job! :D That is impressive, I liked it! ^^
Would have been a nice "real game" :P but hours and days and months of work, though ;p

Yes ^^ And I did all of it in about a month. I wasted a whole lot of our allotted time.
And like I said, we weren't allowed to animate the characters, and it had to be under 60 seconds.
Yeah, I would adore a real MLP game... *sigh* I'd settle for a Skylanders-ripoff...

Someday, who knows! :P
And maybe you could try animated characters eventually, this would be interesting :P

I can try... I've rigged a character before (when you 'stick' the 'bones' to the model, so they can move according to the joints), and that in itself is a big task. Then it's a case of moving the parts in the same way you would draw an animation, with key-frames and 'tweening. As an artist, modelling was a push for me, let alone rigging and animating... I'm not trying to start a one-man studio xD but I'm definitely interested in giving it a try! I just don't know when I'll get to it ^^

This was a model I had to rig to pose.

hahah yeah, that seems like a lot of work, indeed!
But if you ever want to give it a try, I'll be happy to give you my opinion and criticism about the result ^^

Aaaaw <3 I know you would be willing to do the same thing. We're artists, it's good to support each other in what we do, and beyond friendship as well ;)
Unfortunately for you (and me, dah!), the art I'm doing these days is mostly my writing, and since it's in french... well, gets kinda hard to criticise something you can barely understand XD ('cause I'm sure you would be a precious counselor if you were to read my stuff and comment it!) ^_^
