Everfree Hunt by AssasinMonkey Everfree Hunt by AssasinMonkey
'Tis dangerous out there...

Finally out of that rut. Human focus and of course Applejack. Plus some armour and such.
Low face angle was great to practice, took a bit figuring things out but I think it turned out allrighty.

Now as for the story in this... I'll let y'all think about that one

Figured I give this critique thing another shot.
Well, let's start with the positives: The technique is stellar, huge props for pulling off the perspective on the face. The bow gives the thing a nice little story. Love the little details you put in (the holes in the hat brim, the wolves in the background).
Now, lets get to nitpicking:
-Unless AJ is sporting pornstar levels of rack, there is no need for her chestplate to be quite so.. chesty: wrapping and tucking can do a lot.
-Her arms seem just a bit too short, specifically the elbows look like they're sitting just a bit too high.
-Finona's foreleg seems a bit too shaggy/bendy for a dog her size
-Trees in a forest usually don't have branches that close to the ground
-The stem part on the shield seems a bit large to be practical

I was so interested in when I did my critique of Apple Bloom that I forgot to see if perhaps you did one of her big sister, Applejack...

One look at this, and I am impressed by how well this piece turned out just like the one for Apple Bloom. With the sword and shield, armor, and Winona by her side, A.J. look ready for going after whatever might be in the woods to bring home for dinner, or to keep her little sister safe from harm with how dangerous some parts of Equestria are.

I can't wait to see what else you might do during the hiatus between now and Rainbow Rocks and Season 5! I hope you do something for the rest of the Mane Six or the other Cutie Mark Crusaders!! I would love that very much!!!

Applejack the knight with Winona...

Wow what an impressive fan art. Just outstanding.... Very good scenery, the way you did Applejack's armor, equipment and her too, also Winona. Apple sword hehe!

Oh no I think I see 2 timberwolves on the back, on the fog... Be careful Applejack and Winona, the enemy is closer than you think...

Oh gosh, I'd definitely say I find Applejack badass enough to fit such an epic role.
If only I could be her Tali!
Or maybe Garrus or oh gosh, my favourite game series out there probably.

She'd definitely save the galaxy. With the power of ALIEN FRIENDSHIP!

Ohhh, the Turians could be griffons! :la: And the Asari coud be unicorns because of their natural biotics! :eager:

Yes I agree, the Mass Effect games series is awesome, the novels too. Too bad Bioware trolled it up with that last 15 minutes of game play. :iconjeffisnothappyplz:

For some reasons her face makes me think of Ashleigh Ball (AJ's voice actress), which adds even more to the general greatness of the pic. :D

Wow! Very cool way of combining themes. Metal-armored gal with cowboy hat and dog. Awesome pose. Nice ground haze effect. (Less is more).
One issue: Light rays(?) at the holes in the hat seem unnatural/excessive. Or if it's supposed to be water ... no other water (rain) in the scene. It looks a bit like snot dropped from a monster hiding up in the trees. :D

congrats, you made the first mlp human pick that i actually like. she looks normal, and has character. A lot the others picks (not yours) are women with over exaggerated features in poses that make them look like they only have half a brain.
