wow. in the ~15,000 pictures in my personal library, a great portion of which are nude/pervy pics, this is perhaps one of the top 10 or 20 most beautiful. just...- the tummy, her hair, posture, and detail and lighting on her eyes, and facial expression...it just takes the cake. also +1 for chest tuft x3 i really admire the balance that you implemented with her hair and ear(s). truely amazing art: it's not super-colorful; it's not super realistic; it's personable, shaded well, and curvature of and proportionate distance between lines. what's more, they all work together here harmoniously to create mood <3
- "Looking good, Appie, looking goo-ooooood!" - "Thanks, sugarcube! Ah've been working out, think Ah'm gonna be read for the summer apple bucking season!" - "And swimsuit season! Who's the lucky mare?" - "Wha... what?" - "Oh come ON, Applejack, you cannot be looking that good with that cute tummy of yours just for apples! Who's the lucky mare?" - "Well, um, Pinkie... the thing is..." - "AJ! I heard you got a new swimsuit, and I wanted to see! Come on, how cool is it?" - "Darling, you have to let me see you in this swimsuit I've heard about! I've also heard your tummy is looking... yummy!" - "Um... Applejack? I just... wanted to see this too... if... if that's okay with you? Please?" - "Applejack! I'm so going to rub... oh! You all are here! I just... wanted to see Applejack!" - "Gah! Girls! Stop swarming meeeeeee! Ah never should have bought this swimsuit!" - "Wow. And to think she was considered 'background' pony material at one point."
AJ is best pony and ready to prove it at the beach! Love your bi-pedal style, not sure why, I'd have to guess it's the hips/legs proportions to the rest of the body (if you've ever been kicked by a horse, yeah, they're powerful as hell). Only caveat is the Tummy, maybe it's the shading, is very pronounced (but I'm guessing that was the point).
Oh, d'aww, what an adorable Applejack, she's so precious! I'm not normally into anthroish interpretations of ponies, even though this could be argued as just a bipedal pose, but your style is just so cute and if nothing else, I simply had to comment and emphasize how much I adore that face, her expression is just perfect. Such a darling pony!
Thank you so much for leaving that nice comment! I'm also really happy on how her expression turned out. She's just the most adorable thing ever.
And it's interesting how a lot of people comment on it's antroish appearance, because that's not what I planned on doing, I just had a bipedal pose in my head when I started drawing. And I basically wanted to show off her little tummy. And in the end it ended up looking anthro-inspired. I think that's what bipedal poses do to ponies.
And it means so much to me that you think she's so precious, especially since this kind of appearance isn't normally your thing. And I can't stop staring at that plz-icon while smiling and blushing!
You're very welcome! You do inspiring artwork, I just wanted you to know. Also, I have a question, are you taking commissions, and what do you charge for them, be they Deviant Art Safe or like those from your Tumblr page?
I do take commissions, I usually charge $40 for a fully inked, colored and shaded picture. +$5 per additional pony. NSFW and SFW alike. Feel free to send me a note if you have any questions or if you're interested!
