The Nightmare Apple by AssasinMonkey The Nightmare Apple by AssasinMonkey
Nightmare nights is coming closer, thought I'd already start out with some art, of course featuring Applejack

Wanted to give her a nice costume that kind of fit with her life. Since the scarecrow was already taken and quite obvious choice, I went with... well... an Apple costume, literally.
Maybe slightly "rushed" as I'm still not sure what I want with colours during the night, trying to find a balance I'm comfortable with.
Started this during my Saturday Livestream, decided to take a break from it. Getting back to it I thought I was close enough to what I wanted and rolled with it!

When I had this idea in my head, I couldn't get it out, I just had to make it work. Made different design sketches with smaller and bigger apple costumes, trying to strike that balance in size, function and such.


Approx time: 8 hours

What's really funny is, that looks SO much like the light-up logo on Apple laptops.

If I actually had an iPhone, this is the wallpaper I'd put on it.

Nice costume design. I imagine apple worms are some of the scariest monsters to AJ. :)

That's an awesome costume for the little apple enthusiast. I'm sure there's nothing more scary to her family. She looks adorable yet the lighting in her eyes gives her a weird vibe too, a little like the creepy little girls in Japanese horror movies. Using stockings to make her legs into giant worms too was brilliant, and putting them in her hair is really cute and icky as well. The ornament on her (man) ponytail is cute but also looks a bit spider-like with her hair pulled through it. Really nice work on the creepy misty forest, hungry spiders, and really sweet Apple Harvest moon.
