The Many Faces of Raven by timsplosion The Many Faces of Raven by timsplosion
One of two things is happening here: either I'm seeing a pattern where there isn't really one, or :iconmutatingraven:'s episodes of MLP tend to come with some of the best/craziest facial expressions. It's really noticable when a character's face goes off-model, and maybe it happens more and they slipped my mind, but they seem to occur more when Raven boards an episode. I feel like I ought to have a look at more of the board artists on the show, see if I can pick out particular gestures/poses/angles/etc that seem to be unique to each artist.

Unfortunately, ain't nobody got time for that, (I REALLY should've been working on some work for university instead of this comic) so I'm just gonna go with this for now.

I believe they call them emotion sheets.
Don't forget them turn-arounds! =P

...but they are all nuts. All storyboard artists are crazy! :ohnoes:

ESPECIALLY the ones that actually put it to animation! *closes Maya*
Not to mention those that have made animations for fun! *closes Flash*

...I feel like doing some animation now. xD
BUT IT IS 11:55PM so I think I will sleep instead.
I still wanna make that animation of my own pony OC. xD
...but I also wanna do that little one-page comic of Dreamstar and Pinkie Pie... oh and there was that little mini-comic I came up with that would have Mando, Wild Fire, Dreamstar, and all that... so many ideas, so little time...
I believe I've only added 3 animations which I have done in my spare time... two pony ones and a Homestuck one. xD

Or making flash animations that are just weird.
Or maybe a cute, simple one.

Haha I got that shut-eye... didn't sleep too well, but... eh family deaths will probably do that... :/

That or simply "employed ponies" XD I mean, I know several of them on the show have jobs but it's one thing to be a quill/sofa salesman, quite another to be an actor with... you know, LINES and stuff.

If you find yourself noticing tells with other board artists, I'd be curious to hear. I always wonder how much of it translates on a flash show.

I think I'll be on the look-out for things like this now. I'm already curious to see if some boarders have particular background ponies that they feature more often...

You just made me remarked that Cadance (well... Chrysalis) indeed had one eye closed in that scene. I wonder if it's a wink...

Yeah. Crazy faces are great. But the ponies have such wonderful smiles. Well... except Twilight's creepy smile.
