You know it might be not easy to draw yawn which doesn't seem like scream.

I didn't intend on making this, or uploading any new art again so soon but thanks to ~Telaros (and bless him for his amazing efforts to inform the entire brony community of deviantART, I think) it was brought to my attention that today is Applejack Appreciation Day, and I very well couldn't neglect showing my second-favorite pony my support if there was anything I could do to help it. Unfortunately I had very little notice though, and even less time to actually create an artwork but I thought I could at least color a silly old sketch of mine that I've always been fond of if nothing else, and the result is this (perhaps an hour's worth of work). I suppose something is better than nothing though, no?

Happy Applejack Appreciation Day! :iconapplejack3plz::heart:

Like Twilight, my first go at drawing Applejack didn't look as good as I'd like it to, so I wanted to try again using what I've learned since.

Applejack's such a strong character that it's rare to see a vulnerable side to her...

UPDATE 1:
It looks like "Why is she so sad?" is a common question. I would rather you fill in the blanks with your interpretation, my own being that this is a rare moment of insecurity for Applejack.

:icontelaros: is fairly close to what I originally thought as I drew this:
Sometimes... a girl... just wants to be a girl. "Why don't any pony tell me I look pretty too..." Applejack thought, thinking back to all the attention her other friends seem to get. Even ol' Twilight seems popular and she don't even notice. "I can be pretty if'n I wanted, I just- I just have more 'portant things to do..."

:iconswanlullaby:'s comment, "You look gorgeous, sweety!" might cheer up the AJ in the above interpretation (and I agree with the sentiment)

:iconstef0pal:(Stef0Pal)'s comment below mentions that AJ looks like her mother, so every time she looks in the mirror... This suggests a deep sadness, and would fit the image well.

:iconarcheonz:'s comment actually gave me some anxiety as I read it, going through a list of worries that AJ has to deal with on a daily basis as well as some close calls.

So, like I said, I prefer it when you fill in the blanks as it gives any number of interesting interpretations..

UPDATE 2
:icontenrahsoj:'s short story, Stetson, pairs up with this pic. Warning, you may shed a tear or two.

Experimenting a little with the style, I figured I'd draw Applejack with her hair down for this one and see how it turns out

And you can choose what to make of it.

Not terribly fond of this one. =P Wonky Applejack is wonky. I'll give her another doodle sometime.

Fanart for the Fanfiction "Yours Truly" by :iconthanqol:. It gave me feels.

"Well, the sun's been setting as I've been writing this. I'm at Bay Hill Lookout right now, looking out over the orchards. Sky's red and gold, with big clouds like some clumsy painter spilled his ink all over his masterpiece. Normally I come up here to plan, helps me divide the fields in my eyes as well as my head. Downside of which means that this place feels like work. But writing this letter has really unwound me, and I'm noticing just how nice it is up here for the first time in a really, really long time. Wish you were here, Twilight. Wish I could be telling you all this in person."

Read it here: [link]

Largely practice in drawing scenery, trees and clouds in particular. Applejack's shading and colors makes me want to stab my eyes out, but ok.

Eyyup, back at it again Vectoring some fine work by :iconjoey-darkmeat:

Joey put up a new batch of goodness recently and damn if he dont inspire, so i grabbed this one of Applejack since i liked its simplicity.
Right from the moment i saw it i had a picture of bright blue sky and the sun shining down behind her so thats what added to this vectoring.

All up this took about 3 hours, im rather pleased with that effort.

Also, its Applejack Appreciation day today, so yay to that :D

Applejack is the property of :iconhasbroplz: and :iconfyre-flye:

A colored version of one of the sketches I showed earlier, which I was recommended to color it.
