Been working so much on Applejack, I realised I barely had her best companion! Winona!
The only time I made her was during my 24 hour Sweet Apple Acre session.
Initially planned this to be a more... light hearted piece, which sketches I've included in the WIP.
I think during sketching that made it even more heart breaking for me to go with this theme... but I... just... I hope the piece speaks for itself, but I'll have some words as well
I'd look at Winona as a true part of the Apple Family, to me she's best pet. Maybe also because of my view on Applejack of course
I guess sometimes we don't know how much we cared for what we had until we lose it.
She always seemed to smile, tail up, happy, loyal and to business when needed.
It kind of feels weird that this is my first real Winona I've done, but I'll certainly always remember her.
Kind of seemed to be a bit fast piece, but I focused a bit more on tone and feeling, so I felt like I didn't need to do a lot more, keeping it simple but effective.
Also, rain.Edit: I think I've got the proper words to elaborate on this piece.
Even though it's a scene of loss, the good memories should outshine the darkness.
The times that will be remembered the longest.
I didn't want to make something outright depressing. Instead I wanted something sad that can also create a smile. Happy, the way she is.
