This episode... This.. just... I died, it was so perfect. Totally THE episode for me haha, just oh my, I yea, just had to make AJ for this episode.

So yea, trying to recover from the episode, hoofs be shaking, barely holding the pen, I managed to sit down and actually start making her.
So fabulous!

Been a while since I done a pony in this way/style I think. What better way to revisit it by making more Applejack right? Never enough Applejack.

This episode hit me right in the core, I'v got to admit, when it comes to favourite episode, just by my reaction and feeling, I can't deny this one takes it with a landslide of Applehearts.

Update: Humanized Applejewel!

"Ah Smell Like Rosebuds" Lol

All kidding aside this picture is gorgeous. The detail and effort that went into this is simply amazing.
From the patchwork curtain to the floorboards to the detail of the dress and hair. Everything just screams professionalism and class.
You can tell that the artist went to great lenghts to draw this and also enjoys what he/she was drawing.
The first thing that grabbed me about this picture was the lighting and shadding of it. It just popped up amonst the other images in my messages like a "rose" amongst weeds (I feel bad saying that because all the other artists out there that I follow are truly talented but this picture really moved me.)
My only one criticism about this piece (and believe me I don't want to offend but rather just offer my own opinion) is that Applejack's nose is rather ... pointy. I'm unsure if this was the artist's intent, however, I know that it was the only thing in the whole picture that I had a problem with.
Now I don't normally write critiques but I just honestly felt as though I had to given how wonderful this picture is.
Overall I loved this picture alot. Heck if I had the money I'd frame this suckah with some fancy gold frame and hang it in my small apartment for all to see.
Great work keep at it and above all else thank you so much for putting so much work into this piece. It was really amazing and made my day. :)

I love it, it's like an old fashioned portrait. Applejack is at same time smiling and still not at ease being that pretty. Great work on the light, we really can see she comes out from the dark.

Awesome job. Just a small crit. Her snout is very pig like. Make her nostrils appear on the sides of her snout rather than right on the front.

:iconassasinmonkey:
AssasinMonkey Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hehe yea, the snout/muzzle isn't exactly optimal. Although I'm quite experimental when it comes to the different parts and shaping of things (eyes, ears and such also change constantly).

The shadow of the nostril extend perhaps a bit too far, the hole is roughly position on the corner/side though could definitely move a bit. The tip of the nose doesn't help exactly either, it's quite a hard sharp edge and the entire shading of the area kinda gives off the wrong perception. Something to work on the next time for sure! :)

No surprise here! I expected that AJ fans would rejoice when I watched the scene. Seem some gifs inspired you last night. Yeah, I watched.

It shows that you put lot of love and when you do so, it gave amazing results.

Amazing piece

One the best Applejack pictures I have ever seen. Such lovely detail. The shading works so well to highlight her. And she has lovely eyes.

She made that look, she made it work wonderfully for her alone and for the scenario itself.

I suspect Manehatten hasn't wholly left her.

She made it work so well, every scene, photo, walk and face she made killed and revived me instantly.
Was so great to see her like that, the throwback to the Orange life.

You should pay more attention to the design of her nose and her upper lip. Anyway is still a great piece of work, good details and characterization.

The noses are one of those things I've been (and still am) playing around with quite. This one is maybe not one of the best results indeed, more reason to make more art :D

Hah, great! Any plans to do a matching Rarity picture, with our favorite fashion rocking her coveralls, straw hat and faux yokel accent?

AssasinMonkey Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
It is almost needed to make a Rarity counter piece now, but... Applejack. Aaaah, so conflicted! I think eventually I will have to make that Rarity, maybe with mud and all, cracked hooves, etc.

This is a pretty good piece. Love how you got the dress, mane style, and posture just right. Only criticism I could possibly have are the shape of the eyebrows for that stance. It seems like she's being shy, sorta pulling her courage together to walk out onto the stage. Something I expected Fluttyshy to do during her and Rarity's episode during season 1.

If that was what you're going for though, you hit it dead on, I'll say. No complaints about anything else in this piece, the lighting was right, the depth of the pony's features and lengths, accompanied by great shading, makes it look like it will jump out and smile at you. =)

Well done

Glad to hear you like it. The eyebrows are something I hadn't done too much before, I think I was going for a bit "sexy" style, but I did realise it was one of those that are a bit finicky to get right hehe.

More reason to make more Applejacks, t'was fun to do this type of scene shading again, good to hear it worked out :)

Nice. Guiven that she spent some time in her youth with the upper-class part of her family, it makes sense that she'd remember how to act this way.
