About Desktop Ponies

Hello and welcome to the Desktop Ponies Team.

We make animations for the desktop ponies application which allow these cute little ponies to run all over your desktop. Feel free to watch us and if you know how to sprite, add some animations which can be submitted on our ponychan thread.

- A short explanation regarding group membership -
This group is for existing team members of the desktop ponies project. This means that the members have contributed to the project and created animations that were included in the program. If you want to apply as a member, you should first create animations for a new pony (or other characters from the show) or new animations for existing characters and also submit them to the respective ponychan thread (links below).

In short, if you aren't a contributor, don't ask us to join this group: Any person leaving messages of "i wanna join!!!!!" either on the group's front page or via notes will be rejected on sight.
Instead, you can simply watch it.

- Templates & Tutorials -
If you want to get into spriting, there is a tutorial on our site along with the bases to download.

Direct link to base pony download with tutorial video.

All these sprites are fan made and fall under the CC BY-NC-SA 3.0, therefore people cannot charge money or receive it (via donations or voluntary payment) at all.
Credit is to be given when these sprites and bases are used.

We are not affiliated with Hasbro in any way and characters remain property of their respective owners. Current base pony model along with several animations made by monkeyjay. Original sprite models from Derpy Delivery.

This group does not take requests in most situations, but if you want to double check, please visit their main profile to see if they have a request section open.

And please, if you use anything made by this group, give full credit to us and do NOT charge people for points or money, and neither "suggest" them to give you donations to pretend to bypass this limitation.
This is a free, non-profit application we make for you guys so we'd appreciate not being taken advantage of.
Thank you.

Hey everyone

*Update our site is back online! So go check it out.*

Looks like our host wasn't ready for the influx of people and our main website is currently down. You can download the latest version here:…

Feel free to stop by our ponychan thread… or discuss the program here.

Sorry for the troubles but hopefully it should be back up soon.

Enjoy your ponies.
So it seems that there is a lot of confusion about what is and is not allowed to do with our sprites. Some are under the impression that anything goes with them while some are scared that because we asked a few people to stop doing some things with our sprites that all uses of them are banned. That is not the case.

Our sprites are free use for non commercial purposes.

This means you can
*Make trot cycle ponies for yourselves or friends, just do not try to get anything out of it like money or points or what have you even if it is through voluntary donations. Also, please credit us, don't say you created it out from nothing.

*You can use our sprites in non-profit games or videos. Please just put us in the credits somewhere and once again keep it free for the community. We love seeing our stuff being used and enjoyed by everyone.

*You can edit existing ponies to make new poses, ponies, interactions, etc, but please give credit to the original animator. We made the bases to be used so please use them, but don't repost them as your own. Plus if you work on a canon pony, if they are done well enough you can have them put in the program itself. We like having new members and enjoy seeing the creativity of everyone here.

The one thing we don't like seeing are others stealing from us or trying to profit off unsuspecting or unknowing individuals. Desktop Ponies was  made to be used freely by everyone so please keep it free and credit the individuals who work hard to make these like you should any other artist who's work you use or modify.
