Woooooooooo
It's finished! I set out to do 1 episode piece every Saturday Livestream and I stuck to it... it only made this livestream session 13 hours long haha. (12 of which on this piece)

When watching the episode, I knew I had to do something like this, whether on the road or the river. Ended up with the music scene I guess. Any chance to make Applejack is one worth taking. Heck, I think it's also worth noting I've never worked out Big Mac.

So many things to make here! Though I could've done a lot more, I thought I'd try to actually finish it in a non-24 hour stream. Many colours to fill still...
I tried to play around with the shape of the cart, bending and twisting it a lot more than what I'd probably usually do with objects like such which usually have straight lines. Kinda trying to bring the movement from the song in it.

Will probably try to see if I can put together a time lapse for this. Should of course find some song remixes to go with it.
Anyhow, enough talking, lets sing! (because the song is buck awesome)
Hope y'all like it.


Approx Time: 12 hours
Time Lapse: Probably coming later on.

I have nothing bad to say about this, EXCEPT that Big Mac usually looks bigger next to his cart on the show. Besides that negligible detail, IT IS BEAUTIFUL. This work does a perfect job at portraying the emotion of the characters at that precise moment. You just expect the picture to start moving and continue on with the story of the show! I especially love that the colors stray away from the pastel colors of the show but just the right amount without looking too unrealistic. One could almost write a fan fiction off this one artwork, no joke.
What do you think?

The running gag about Bic Mac's vocabulary has very much outlived it's welcome.

Back in season 1, we saw he's an intelligent guy of few words. In S4 when he was chasing vines, he comes across as a semi-literate simpleton.

Dammit, Hasbro. ALMOST giving him a full sentence in this episode, then cutting it off wasn't funny. He deserved a part in the song at the very least. Lay off the flanderization and give Mac some actual bonafide speaking parts like in the comic!

I watched you stream. You listen to wonderful music when you draw.

Awesome work. Yeah, the song is awesome.

A crying shame they don't give him lines at all, not even in the song :(. At least the comics do him some justice :)

Beautifully painted, and I love those vivid colors - they give such a nice atmosphere. You can almost feel the warmth of the sun, smell the fresh air, and hear the babbling of distant brooks (and the laughter of nearby technicolor horses).

Enjoying the pic.  If only cartoons could actually look this realistic w/o going the Dreamworks/Pixar route.  X-S
