I don't feel the need to say any words here, I'll let the piece speak for itself.
But... I am going to type the following.
Struggled a bit more with this piece than I initially expected, but maybe I also got distracted by games a bit too much throughout its process.
Then again, I did also get distracted making the CMC while I was still working on this haha.
Anyhow, the concept for this came from the Apple Family Reunion. I wanted the picture to tell it all, hinting to possibilities based on the episode. Specifically the flashback of Granny Smith sowing.
I often feel like trying to bring out part of the emotion and I don't think I've done something similar to this in a while, a still but hinting piece. Quite wanted to do this.
Finally also a bit more elaborate old pony piece. Although the perspective, maybe not my extreme favourite, but it ended up being quite fun although challenging. Mainly the table though, it's always the horizontal ground surface that falls off the bottom of the canvas that gets me.
Kept the environment fairly simple though. But oh gawd, those squares
PS: We've got (on the lower image) Granny Smith, Apple Sauce and Apple Rose. Which would be the official names, but I'm not aware if the 4th above has a fandom name? But perhaps names are not important here at all
PPS: There's indeed also another reference to some photos, in case anyone wondered
Approx Time: 20-21 hoursEdit: Fixed Apple Sauce's young eye colour
