SFM-Ponies Official Mascot: Animazam

^24be255868d95839ca4215407cff7128eb5400b9ddcd641a9 by The4thaggie

Meet Animazam, SFM-Ponies official mascot.  Want to use her in your own art?  Download her and bend her to your will (with joints and stuff I guess)
Join us again this year at the largest Brony convention around.  We have been allowed another panel this year at Bronycon.  

Friday, August 7 @ 8PM EST in MOON room

Now, unlike last year, we can't ensure that the panel will be recorded in some fashion.  Thanks to BeardedDoomGuy's father, we had near immediate panel footage to upload, but Bronycon followed suit several months later.  Bronycon may opt to record the panel or they may not.  We're hoping they will.  The panel is late in the day, yes, but so is the Bronies React panel and a few other note-able ones on other days.  If you are planning on attending Bronycon, check the schedule, but this is our tentative assignment.

Panelists include:  :iconargodaemon: :iconata64: :iconponinnahka: :iconvulsegardt: :iconindexpony: and :iconthe4thaggie:

Additionally, if you are looking to meet Nahka, he will be at the Overmare Studios booth in the vendor hall.  If you are interested in 3D prints of ponies or meeting Uncommented I believe he will also have a table at Bronycon.  Knowing Igor (My Little Ties), he should have a booth setup for the PonyVR game.  If you haven't played the PonyVR game with an Occulus Rift, it's not something to miss.

Aside from maybe Index and Nahka, the rest of us usually stick together through the entire convention.  Feel free to contact one of us (preferably via twitter) to setup a meet if you are there.

Congrats are in order for everyone involved.  Thank you again for your hard work and dedication.  We surprisingly beat argodaemon by 30 votes :D, and that is saying something.  Would have been great to be #1 or #2, but #3 is impressive considering the wide-spread appeal of those.

Edit:  SFM rekt this month's video overall.

Becoming a Member

The only requirement to be accepted as a member into the group is to have at least one deviation in your gallery that is (a) created in SFM and (b) created by you.   

You do not need to be a member to comment or submit (to most galleries).  If you are here looking for help to get started in SFM, you are welcome to comment on the group's home-page or submit a note to the group.  Consider watching the group until you meet the requirement for membership.

Deviations created in Ponylumen, Gmod, Blender/Maya/etc do not count as SFM deviations (nor are they accepted into the group).

Home Page/Group Journal Comment Guidelines

  • Keep drama-inducing comments to a minimum
  • Don't link to any journal or submission that perpetuates personal drama or bias
  • Don't ask for someone to make your OC (outside of the journals linked below)
  • Comments regarding the administration of the group are welcome, but consider sending a note to the group or one of the admins before doing so.  Admins have defined expectations and will be held accountable for their actions on DA.  Legitimate concerns and complaints will be considered and responded to with the appropriate amount of seriousness.
  • Constructive feedback for improving the group is welcome and will be considered by the group administration.
Comments will be judged on a case-by-case basis, but only the more serious of offending comments will have action taken on them (we're not trying to "rule with an iron fist" here).  Repeat serious offenders may find themselves blocked, but this resolution will be avoided unless deemed necessary.  In the event of a random deviant (non-member) unrelated to the group or SFM in general breaks the rules, the deviant will likely be automatically blocked.

If you want a pony OC done for you to use on SFM, don't ask on the group's comments or notes.  Instead, go HERE or HERE and talk to someone from those lists to make your OC.

Does anyone know of a good palette swap tutorial? Some of the background characters are simply re-colors of other characters, like Lovestruck is a re-color of Twilight. I'd also be needing one that covers importing cutie marks.

Your best bet would be to get or gimp, and VTFedit to convert over your textures into an editable format for the other programs. has a VTF plugin, which eliminates the need for VTF edit. And gimp might have one, also.

i am having a few problems with sfm when i load a downloaded models and phonemes for my custom model so i can only use my model but thats it no lip sync auto and manual lip sync fail. any way to fix it? anyone who would actually help?
Digivee Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Hobbyist Filmographer
I'd reccomend you manually animate lipsync, as it looks better than auto lipsync. If you downloaded the .DMX's that contain emotions and phonemes, right click on your model in the viewport, and select import. As a reference:…
Once you get the import dialogue, navigate to your phoneme/emotion DMXs and select them.

What do folks think of creatorofpony's alternate pony models? Should someone make the effort to convert them to SFM like they did for his EQG models?
yaasho Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm looking for someone who's open to do custom modeling for OC's. Payment with points or whatever your preference is.
