Twilight Laying Down [SFM] by argodaemon Twilight Laying Down [SFM] by argodaemon
Was actually looking for some opinions on the pose here.  I spent a while today trying to get a good looking "laying down" pose, but the legs have to have their bones re-positioned quite a bit to get something that looks decent.  Wanted to see what anyone else thought.  The front legs need to be played with a bit more, but are easy to fix compared to the flank.

While I could make one with her laying with the flank turned sideways, the difficulty comes in animating the model sitting or standing up.  This pose makes that super simple.

Anyways, let me know what you think. :happybounce:

Link to the DMX for the pose:
Do know that this is not perfect. The back legs do not mirror across and can look strange from certain angles.

Fluttershy's hair was going nuts after importing this animation, a quick fix would be to select only the bones from Pelvis to left-wingclosed and then importing the animation ~~Just in case someone else has the same problem.

BTW great model! I was trying to make one myself and it turned out awfull! lol ~~s2

I can show such on my streams.  I am running one tomorrow at 6pm CST.  A tutorial in regards would be way too specific.

Be sure to deselect the "rootTransform" when loading an animation from a DMX.  This should keep the model from flying away.

alright thanks. i'll compare it to my laying down pony dmx, probably yours is better. oh, also, could you make a male version, possibly?

I do not plan to port any to the male models.  This one was created based on a need I had for a pose and took forever to make look decent as is. :(

Could you maybe upload the pose? I've been trying to get what you did but I can't get it right (being new to this and stuff).

Anyways, let me know what you think
Her back looks strange. Can't exactly say what it is but something isn't right. The front legs look fine for me.

I will try to later. Left and right leg aren't exactly mirrored across and look a bit different, but it was meant to be a quick version to work on later. What i needed it in focuses on the front, not the back anyways.  The back would probably look better if I could force the thighs higher, but doing so causes some polygon stretching that looks wrong. =/

The reason I was working on this pose involves Twilicorn, but you can't see the legs with the wings in the way lol.

I'm not sure about this, but what if her back knee was pointed somewhat upwards rather than forwards? I may be wrong about it, but who knows

:iconargodaemon:
argodaemon Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
I was thinking the same thing.  It is as if the thigh just needs to be separated from the flank a bit more.

Knowing how a real horse works is easy.  The issue is dealing with legs that are as wide as her head to achieve the same.  Requires compromises. :( (Sad)

She looks a bit stiff; maybe make the forelegs cross or otherwise introduce more variance to the legs?

Any actual use of the pose will be customized based on need.  It may not look the most comfortable like this, but it is just meant to be the "skeleton" used to save time in creating something custom every time.

Having done a very similar pose in gmod recently, I can tell you for a fact that no matter what the back legs will always be trouble, always seem to stick up a bit high at the 2nd, lower joint. As for the front legs, with the leg and hoof set laying flat on the ground, IMO it looks most natural, the elbows being tucked in rather than out more forwards also seems a more natural, comfortable pose.

The front legs seem to be sticking out forward a bit much.  In the show it seems like they tuck their front legs under themselves a bit more (like cats do).  Those back legs - wish they could be a bit more round on the top.  

But those criticisms aside, this is well done.

The models make tucking the hooves underneath a bit difficult, so have to go with just straight out.  I agree that I wish it was more rounded on the thighs, but that could only be done be adding more polygons. :(
