Over our acres by AssasinMonkey Over our acres by AssasinMonkey
Woooo, Applejack. Oh gawd no, not the Apple!!
Ahuhm... uh yea, watched the episode of course. Second art piece during the Saturday (and by now Sunday) stream.

Wanted to do an environment from the episode, one of the acres. Decided the day scene since my Flutterbat was night.
Before I started I also realised... I didn't have any fully environment focused pieces at all, or at least clearly pony that is. I did end up adding AJ though.... because well... AJ
Though I hope the environment is still the focus.

Playing around with environment, good fun. Wanted to do some (hilly) plains piece in a long time, always kept bouncing into "awkwardness" but I think I managed to get it feeling all right.
Had a bunch of little tiny changes at the end, going back and forth "I'm going to upload this now!, oh wait... change this, oh, change this back, ok now I'm..."
Oh well hehe, it's finally here.

Hope I did it ok.

PS: thinking of putting the time lapse together for this one from the stream recordings again.
Edit: Checked recording, the approx time is actually slightly longer than 4,5 hours rather than 6 :O


Approx Time 4,5 hours

OH MY CELESTIA! I WISH I COULD BE AS AMAZING AS THIS. You have talent my friend and wow you use it to it's potential. I can also see that this isn't the first and probably won't be the last time you impress the world with your skills. I look forward to my jaw being agape once again.

Sincerely,

I think it's fantastic that you've drawn something with greenery and sunlight, yet that very landscape is utterly forlorn.

As more of a landscape guy myself, I approve of more pieces where the focus is the landscape itself. 
This is a very midground focused piece, maybe something a bit closer to the viewer would push the depth even more.
Just something to think about, maybe =)
You did a good job with the grassy fields, I love grass in direct sunlight!

I'm not sure if I should if I should be sad that the trees have been eaten, as most of the comment section seems to think, or happy as AJ overlooks a whole new stretch of orchard as new trees grow from the seeds dropped by the bats.
The trees still look pretty lively despite less leaves, so look kinda Sapling-y, so I'm going to pick the latter.

It was one of my goals to keep the situation kinda neutral or towards both sides. Kinda how in the episode neither side was necessarily good or bad. It's great to see it reflecting back in the comments :)

So, that'S what you were drawing in your last livestreaming.

Awesome piece. Poor Applejack. Even if her friend is back to herself (I know, I know, but don't want to spoil), she got a huge lost to got through.

real life situations similar to this make it really hard to be on flutter's side on this. not that i'm a farmer or anything but im sure it's hard to be on any animal's side when your livelihood is threatened. masterfully done. both this piece of art and the episode.

Really loved the episode for that yea. Both sides were very valid and could be related too, while both still having their flaws. :)

And we should all be glad Equestria doesn't have guns.
A few shells of #2 birdshot and this would have been a much shorter episode.
