I made a hornglow effect! It's for a larger ongoing project (which you can see previews of if you come to my live streams), but I thought I'd share this bit, up close and personal.

HAVE SOME LYRA

Yeah, I bet there are some unicorns that when they first figure out magic, they just spend hours staring at the shiny glow effect. XD

Good, very well-drawn. But if you could make the horn animation just a little slower, It would improve it vastly.

Pft, the magic effect is easy, it's one of the simplest possible effects animations. :D

[link] - if you have this book you have all you need for it.

All I did was animate a set of lines (representing the peaks) scroling up the horn, and even built some template angles for where the inside/outside of the bulges went. Then went through and used the pen tool to draw the shape. Then spent even more time than that took FIXING the pen tool line, because Flash is dumb. XD

The sparkles are just fbf drawn, because all they really are are one shape or another, fluctuating randomly from frame to frame, then disappearing for a while)

This is really great how long does it take to make that glow effect?

Took about an hour, while watching friends play videogames. Plus an hour making sparkles for generic use on stream. But now I can just re-use it by changing the gradient color on the 11 or so frames :D
