Only two weeks left. I can't wait! New season, here we come!

Here is a little something I threw together. A bunch of experimenting and a ton of steps had to be taken to reach this result.
1. Hand draw all the ponies and windigos.
2. Color all ponies and windigos in photoshop.
3. Model the 3D scene.
4. Texture all 3D objects.
5. Draw background and separate it for parallax effect.
6. Camera setup and render.
7. Tweak each frame and painstakingly hand paint the sparkly effect on the ice FOR EACH FRAME!
8. Flash setup using buttons.
9. Collapse from exhaustion.

Ok this is amazing! The amount of time and effort put into this make it much more than "a little something" like you said in the description.
The interactivity is an awesome touch, the style is wonderful, and the color scheme is perfect. Each pose fits its character so well. You can feel Fluttershy's fear, Rainbow's courage, Applejack's badass, Rarity's ferocity, and Pinkie's oblivious glee in the midst of danger.
You use of shading really emphasizes the windigoes kind of anglerfish effect.
The only way this could possible be any better is if the interactivity swiveled 360 degrees. But that's it.
What do you think?

It's actually quite easy to make. It just takes time.

You know, this automatically reminded me of the scene in Harry Potter 5, when the Death Eaters face off against the Oracles.
