Equestria Daily Pre-Reader Banner by Alexstrazse Equestria Daily Pre-Reader Banner by Alexstrazse
Here it is! All of those vectors I worked on finally have a home, here in this banner. The amount of sources and vector bases is beyond obscene, but I will get around to crediting everyone.

I'd also like to profusely thank :iconkitsuneymg: and :iconpineapplesam: for their help on this project, as they contributed seven of the thirty characters. You help me out a ton, guys!

Enjoy

1) You totes need to get a MASSIVE version of this up. I'm working on getting larger versions of the vectors I did posted, but I posted the AI files (flash SHOULD import them.)

2) I'd love to get ahold of of some of your .FLAs to see how you handle some of the more annoying parts of vectoring (mostly wrt wings and lines that go INTO an object)

3) We need to start animating Tales from the Staff Canteen

4) Fucking Christ Midnight is adorable.

1) That could be cool. 10x bigger would be nice. So... 10k x 3.5k. I would have to resize the banner and probably redraw the "pre-reade", but that could work.

2) If you want I'll email you one, but I'm not sure how much you can learn from it. Mainly because after I make the lines, I delete them entirely and just leave the colored fills. Maybe a livestream would be helpful?

3) Oh god animation takes forever.

4) Yes.

2) darn =/
3) With flash and tweens, ain't it easier?
4) ikr

Heh, you might have to come up with a labelled version. I saw a lot of requests in the EqD comments for "labels" on who the pre-readers were.

And here I thought Couch/Noble was your OTP. ;)
