Dota2 Gyrocopter [link]

This is not my main project currently; It is made as a filler to fill in the gaps and probably expand in the future when Project Portal Series Termination is completed, as a companion to the Starcraft ones

Note guys, delays after clicking an ability is intended to sync the portrait with the animation


After few weeks working on Portal: Series Termination, add to that the trip that rendered me unable to animate; I've lost my momentum real bad which means that this last week I really slowed down :(

I decided to do something different to refresh myself as well as regain that lost momentum. Hehehe, this thing prove that I can actually finish animations like this in 2 days; although non-stop though ^^; Got to practice with AS2 too!


Hero Lore, Pinkie Pie the Gyrocopter

Most ponies know Pinkie as an energetic and enigmatic party pony, her life goal is to make everypony smile. What many don't know is the kind of methods she uses to achieve this goal. Other than throwing non-sequiturs or bursting out into a song, Pinkie is an expert builder and tinkerer; party cannons, party wagons, cupcake mass-production machines, and the list goes on. However, one creation can be distinguished from the others. The Gyrocopter, known by the others as "some flying thinga-majig," is the first mechanical aerial vehicle ever built in Equestria, originally intended to be her main mode of transportation before she discovered that taking shortcuts through the 4th wall is much easier and more efficient. As a result, Pinkie is rarely seen with this particular invention. But when she does, her presence is guaranteed to be a blast, both literally and figuratively; Her Gyrocopter swooping in providing support as well as a dazzling spectacle for her friends and allies alike while devastating her foes through mindblowing, unconventional methods.


To be honest, I've only used gyrocopter once; and I fail epicly... Oh well, I've found my comfort zone within other heroes so I don't really mind that. I like the concept though, he looks like a fun hero to play if used right :D



3 idle animations for Pinkie. When any ability is clicked, there will be some dialogue between Pinkie and the others, CHOSEN AT RANDOM :D Clicking the same ability again may reveal different dialogue.

Responses are taken directly from MLP Cartoons


I don't know whether to continue this with other characters, considering that I have Starcraft to be completed :) But if you have any suggestions, please go ahead!


Time taken (without character vector preparation): 2 Days

Music used is Dota 2 Explore 1 and 2 [link] and [link]

Definitely impressive the way everything flows together. The music adds a great soothing touch where it is a simple, yet unique animation. Also found the sounds to be very clean.

Though it isn't original the musical score is well chosen for the animation. The music adds a sombre light tone to it with things just being clean and simple. It's pinkie in a Gyrocopter goofing around with party favors.

What truly impressed me is how the character voices are very cleanly matched to the animation. Tried to clean up show voices from various shows. It can be a daunting task requiring a good amount of skill.

Can't wait to see how this develops. In all honesty if this were made into a game with pinkie flying around I would play it. :D
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
14 out of 14 deviants thought this was fair.

when i saw this i gained interest
seeing pinkie in dota would be nice

the overall hud COULD look nicer although is fairly nice already
gyrocopter is well represented by this peace
his skill look fairly nice in this representation
(i played 2 games as gyro after i watched this)

the portrait is a bit boring (comparatively to your starcraft portraits even though they were based around it.)

the design of pinkrocoptor(as i will now refer to it as)
is very nice and works way to well on the character itself
from one who plays mmoba games religously
you have done very well on this representation of
an ad ranged carry good luck to you sire and i look foward to your next works of pure art and fantasy
p.s. it made my day

I love Gyrocoptor.  The feeling of nuking down the entire enemy team at once just produces an unparalleled sense of satisfaction.
