Just a really short short I did to keep a steady upload rate on my account... However, it was mostly to test a few things in flash.

No that is not my OC.

It's a character in a (POSSIBLE) upcoming series of animations.
And to put this in perspective, she's blind, going only by hearing.

About 2 hours to make in flash and Illustrator

The combination of rain and blood definitely gave a dramatic feel to it. I couldn’t help but think either this pony is preparing for battle or he/she is getting ready to "Take care of somepony." The black and gray coloring gives it a sort of Sin City feel which in its own way is artistic. I noticed the pony in this animation had no pupils which can lead to a story of its own, or it can lead to the viewer deciding which pony it is, this adding to the creative aspect of the viewer. It was short and a little disappointing to those expecting a story to go with it, but I as most understand how difficult animation can be with limited resources. Otherwise this animation is awesome and in its own way, very artistic. Grate Work.
What do you think?

It's okay for a short animation. Not going lie here. There is some animation mistake in the water. It jumps. Not much color there either... BUT this was used for an impact and a hint of technique with some vision to. The originality, eh... i haven't seen animations like this, but the lack of color is not very original. I do however like the pink eye and the blood. They stand out with vibrancy. The colors resonant from the grey, making them stand out. The sound is also pretty high quality. What really made this shine is the diliverance. Nice work. I hope to see more. The only thing not giving technique it's five stars is the rain.

The first Arrow did not hit right in the bulls eye... was that the homing shot? Since every one after that seems to have hit right on the spot.

Is she a Pegasus? Would be ideal for archer. More mobility and could totally rain death from above.

I can hear the echos of the target. No really how does she hear where the target is? Probably the water hitting the target, just like from the movie Dare Devil lol.

I don't know how she did it in this case, but when trained from their very early childhood, blind people are actually capable of getting a pretty clear impression of their surroundings by clicking their tongue and hearing the echo. Sadly only few children receive said training, even though it gives them such a great way of perception.

//And yes, late answer is late, but at least it's not superlate, right?

I learned in my psychology class that there is this certain situation where a person is blind yet is able to detect its surroundings. Basically the brain is not blind, only the person. The brain will use the eyes to recognize objects in front of the person but, the person will not see it (or realize that he is seeing it). Example: A blind man with a trash can infront of him, he will walk around the trash can, but will not understand why he did that. Just some interesting facts I learned :>
