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]

Dota2 (c) Valve

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
18 out of 18 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

DONT READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. NOW THAT YOU'VE STARTED READING, DONT STOP. THIS IS SO FREAKY. 1 say your name 10 times 2. say your mum's name 5 times and your crushes name 3 times 4. paste this onto 4 other games. If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday possible. But if you read this and do not paste this, you will get bad luck. SEND THIS ON 5 DIFFERENT GAMES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOUR DONE, PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSHES NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS. THIS IS SO FREAKY IT ACTUALLY WORKS

If I may suggest. If you do plan on updating this wonderful piece, perhaps delay the impact of the second partillery ordnance by another second or two? Just to better match the actual timing of the Aurel's Call Down.

Let's say that Rarity would be better as Drow Ranger not as Sniper.
Yudhaikeledai Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
Both Sniper and Rarity prefers to fight from a distance (Take aim and assassinate) - both are rather frail up close but give them space and they own hard with their cunning prowess (this is also represented back when Fighting is magic is still pony - where Rarity is a Zoning kind of character). Rarity and Sniper are both very very hammy - they both talk a lot, upbeat and extroverted, are very dramatic and are easily excited - Unlike the silent and introverted Drow (Hence personality conflict if Rarity is Drow)

What drives my point home is that being a Sniper requires marksmanship skills and a cunning knowledge of the enemy (Headshot); not hard with Rarity's knack of looking into all the details (master of the art of the dress) and spot an opponent's weakness. It's both in her job and blood :D
MitoTheBest96 Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Then you will associate those Drow Ranger?
