Staring directly into the sun is harmful for your eyes. 

Wow, this took me about three weekends to get it almost right. I say "almost" because I'm still not entirely satisfied with how this turned out, and feedbacks of ways for me to improve are always welcomed. I think it has to do with the general color of Applejack herself. I'm not going to lie, I find it difficult to harmonize the color of AJ's body with the environment.

Good, but give her a troubled look and instead of a hoof on the round bale, have it lifted in the air, as if she was in looking back at some place she had left (like the farm) and having conflicting thoughts(like maybe she doesn't want to leave).

so modest! just look at how so many things are just done right! varying hues, controlled lighting, original style, great sense of depth, this picture has so many signs of a real classic! you did awesome, if not masterfully:3

It's very sweet and lovely. Applejack looks so wonderfully contented as she looks out over her day's accomplishments, and the landscape is equally beautiful.

I wonder how she would get home though. I think I had put her in the middle of a gigantic terrain of hills.

Her cutiemark is very edgy, looks like transformed vector for me. Did you draw it?
aJVL's avatar
Yea it's vector. Should have painted over it.
