    Just to make sure:
    Do you have no spaces in the facerig path?
    That's currently a bug.

    Other then that, could you upload that test to the recources, then I can see if it works for me (had that happen before, creator didn't get textures to work, he uploaded, I tried, textures for me :p)

    Looks promising, but seems to have some odd curves. The lower right part of the triangle curves up in the first image, which wouldn't seem as odd except it's the lower right part of the square in the second image. Maybe they're both just still shots of waving shapes, but I thought I ought to point it out.

    The triangle is actually a cone. Not easy to see unless you have it live and can move it around. But it curving is actually a good thing, lol.

    What concerns me is this, and I'm pretty sure it may be a bug, but it is not displaying any color from my texture on the red channel. If I change the texture to pure red, it comes out black.

    Wow cool. I know some of the troubles to build a cell shaded pony. Because I had to build one for imvu last year.
    Looking good and good luck.

    It looks like you're creating the models from scratch. Is there any reason you're not using any of KP-ShadowSquirrels ones?

    No real reason other than I wanted too.

    Well, I can think of one.

    the KPSS models are a lot higher resolution than mine are. And I'd be almost doubling the resolution by adding the outline to it. I haven't looked at the specifics on those models, but that could possibly push it past the recommended 50k polygon upper limit. Not completely sure on that, though.

    But the main reason was because I thought it would be a fun challenge to make my own.

    I'm knee deep in animations, trying to get some of them to look the best I can. Some of the animations are making me go back and tweak parts of my model. Hopefully, I'll have something released soon!

    I am enjoying seeing the progress, but as much as I'd like for someone else to do the work, I'm starting to realize that I'm probably going to have to do my own version of this. If I end up using it as extensively as I plan to I would want to be able to make new expressions and such without having to bother or hire someone else to do it. Also, I'm looking to make a changeling model, which is at least as different as the mare and stallion heads anyway.

    So, wish me luck I guess. I'm off to learn blender. Would it be alright to ask for advice or insight from time to time?

    So that the company doesn't get in trouble, be extremely careful with cutie marks. They were created for pretty much the same reason the autobot/decepticon symbols and G.I. Joe scar were formed; Copyrights. The pony body can't be copyrighted as far as I know, just as the human body can't be copyrighted, but specific characters can be.

    Since this is a product that has to be bought, 'fair use' is an extremely weak argument. You may wish to omit any copyrighted cutie marks in the default list of usable textures, or obtain permission from Hasbro to have them. (can't stop people from modifying on their own, but that's on them.)

    How is 'fair-use' in this case an "extremely weak argument." if you would care to elaborate?

    Mainly because we are talking about 'User-Generated Content' rather than official content.

    Facerig is not profiting from the use of cutie marks, their company is not producing this avatar nor any textures on it. It is being made by a private individual who has no intentions of making any profit. So, while I respect your intention to help the OP, your point is moot.

    ever seen "Fighting is Magic"? It was also non profit, and a fan work, but Hasbro still gave them a formal order to stop after it got too big, because of copyrighted material being used without consent. Now, with this being so small, and not being made by the main developers, they might not notice. But they have defended their copyrights in the past, and could do so again, could. I personally would like to see it finished, but I don't want it to get attacked the same as Mane Six and Jan Animations did.

    might be nitpicking. once again, hope to see it finished.

    The C & D's for Jan and the fighting is magic game were both due to a lack of communication between Hasbro's lawyers and the actual company. Jan has since gotten notice that the C & D has been lifted on him. As for fighting is magic, if they disputed the C & D they would win in court, noone wants to put in the time and effort of going against a corporate legal team.

    EDIT: Jan is already working on Button's Adventures episode 1, there are some animatics with shadyvox voicing them that got shown at a recent panel. They mentioned communicating with Hasbro, and that they were told that Hasbro had never had an issue with Button in any way, it was their lawyers acting without being told to do so.

    like I said; (I) might be nitpicking. You guys could very well be right, I suppose. I'm just trying to say 'heads up, keep it in mind' and such. Don't really have any more to add after that. good luck with the project.
