Greetings, just a fellow brony and animator coming through. That being said, I love to see animators learn from each other. We are our most valuable assets after all. So lets dig into your work here.

I think the bulk of this shot, as could be said of your other work, is summed up in this image :HERE: You see, in animation, we have a principle known as "arcs". Its an awareness to the idea, that biomechanically our bodies move and animate in arcing or rounded motions and not rigid ones. I recommend googleing "Principles of animation, Arcs" To get a better understanding.

I can clearly see that twilight's head simply moves in a straight line from where she begins to where she ends. This can easily be improved by giving it an under sweeping motion or an over one.

Without seeing the flash file with its tweens, I can only speculate this next part. I think you are relying on the Flash program to do the work for you. I'm not saying this to bash you as an artist, but that I know even in myself. You can easily slip that up. One of the things I learned during my education was that the computer is terrible at making images come to life, you have to take control. So until computers become gods, we have to do it ourselves. You can read this short article,:HERE: for a better explanation of why arcs or important. And why programs don't cut it.
A good rule of thumb, never motion tween for more than 1 frame.

Arcs show up everywhere in the world :example:. When you don't use arcs, things can come off as robotic and inorganic. And you'll lose the life essence we animators strive to create.

Alight ^^ that's enough critique. Here's the stuff I liked about this shot. You have a fantastic strength in your spacing AND timing! The overall motion of twilight is very quick and lively. It perfectly matches the expression of her face and boost the overall feeling. Its exciting, you can just tell she's excited to have wings. You expressed her joy in more than just her face, bravo. Some animators forget that the body can be just as expressive as the face, and you utilized them both quite well.

Even the rest of your work has this jump to it. If you ever want to test yourself, try animating something slow and sad.

To close, dude. Keep it up. And don't be afraid of that rant I gave you about arcs. We all need to continue to learn and grow as animators. If there ever comes the day you feel you know it all, only then should you be afraid. And if all we ever told each other was how good it was and never the bad, we would never learn. I'm confident arcs is an obstacle you can overcome, and maybe it's just something you had yet to strongly consider.

But B+. Keep at it. And share the art to others.
