Hello! I am argodaemon, best known for animating ponies in SFM (Source FilmMaker). While most my focus is on YouTube videos, DeviantArt is used as an output for shorter GIFs and pictures.

YouTube: www.youtube.com/user/Argodaemo…
Twitter: twitter.com/argodaemon
Patreon: www.patreon.com/argodaemon

What program do you use?
I use Source FilmMaker. It is free for download on Steam.
Photoshop is used for GIF compilation and photo editing.
After Effects for video compiling and editing.
Speed Grade for color correction.
Audacity for audio work.

Do you take requests?
No. That is the easiest way to put it. I have done some before, and technically still do, but it is very rare and dependent on if it sounds like fun. If you send a request, do not expect a reply.

Can you make my OC in SFM?
This will always be a no. Please stop asking. I move ponies, not make them. :(

Can you critique my work?
I used to, but not anymore. It has become a bit excessive. Also, most people do not know what they are looking for from a critique.

Are you an animator?
Nope. Just picked up SFM back in early 2013 and just found out I am not too bad at it. No schooling or expected career. Just a hobby.

How can I support you?
First off, support is not "needed" and will not effect the content I make. Nonetheless, it still costs me quite a bit for software, hardware and especially time. I created a Patreon by request, or you can donate through PayPal. YouTube has also added the ability to donate, which you can find the link to on my YouTube's channels main page.

Any chance you would be doing an SFM of Be A Bolt? I feel like you'd do an epic job!

Base SFM is not much larger than TF2.  I am unsure of its exact size as I have installed a lot of extra mods and models since than.  It should be under 10GB, though.

Hey man I am a good fan of yours (not going all out here) and I've watched some of your videos, which are amazingly animated by the way! I have definitely watched your SFM tutorials, as I have just taken interest in the program after watching your videos. I have a great idea for an animation, but like everyone else, I need to practice using the program first. So I just want to ask if you have any extra advice for a beginner! I am also wondering the best way to practice using SFM. Specifically should I try doing small animations first with a set goal, or should I just mess around with models and movements (kinda like you did in the tutorial video about using the motion editor)? Anything you have to say would be beneficial to me! How else are ya gonna get there right?

I recommend starting with making pictures, as animating is basically just layers of pictures blended together.  Once you feel comfortable with how the models can be manipulated and utilized, try taking one of those pictures and modify that pose into a few others poses that can be blended together to make motion.

For instance, this is kinda what my first pass of an animation looks like: www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0wF_8…

A good tutorial in regards is this one from Valve on Pose-to-Pose animation: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEz7Ts…

Thanks man, I'll see what I can do over the next few days! Also nice wording on how it's pictures blended together; basically how the 4th dimension works!
