Simply Applejack by Ahrimatt Simply Applejack by Ahrimatt
So I heard there are still fans of this background pony called Applejack out there and thought it would be nice to draw her in her usual habit - being away from all the main events. So that's her.

Anyway, behold the first picutre I finished in an acceptable ammount of time (which is one day, instead of one week/month). I kinda like this style right here, but I'm not convinced... the excessively detailed one I used to hold on to eariler feels great too. Huh, we'll see.

Simply amazing. It really captures the moment!

The shading is remrakable, and I love the chewed apple beside her, very impressive. I also love the painted style, it fits in with the mood.

I understand the time of day is day time afternoon, but I think maybe a sunset would've capture the moment a bit better with the sun leaking over the hills ^^

Another thing is the ponie's dimension, ouff! Perfect! But, the tree could've dug into the ground more, having the grass going over it. ^^

Otherwise, this is quite an amazing piece! Well done! I love it. Keep up the magnificent work dear. (:

Hello!

I really like this artwork and I was wondering if I had your permission to use this for the cover art as part of a new Applejack song I'm working on. If you allow me to use your work, I'll be more than happy to credit you and even provide a link to your work in the description. Please let me know if I have your thumbs up asap!

Thanks in advance

Starting on the song now. Sorry it's taking so damn long, but I've had to worry about other things. It should be finished before Season 5 airs :)
