Apple Trait

Little partial Applejack Portrait, to fill in the year's gallery... with Apples.

With some reference taken from my square portraits I made a year ago. Partially.
Basically made on a single layer, aside from minor things such as the sketch, and tears.

Also done since I started a big piece last Saturday which I couldn't finish in one sitting. Something I did intend to do and change up regarding Saturday Streams. To rely less on them to provide uploads, and move some of that responsibility back to my midweek production cycle I'm trying to revive properly.

My midweek production, or anything besides Saturdays, has been a pretty sad situation. Burnout and depression making me lose that routine. Something I want back, and hopefully will return, albeit progress has been on/off, or uncertain.

Either way, there will always be a desire for Applejack, so I make more Applejacks haha. I'll make other stuff too, though. This year has just started and there's so much stuff I want to revive and reorganize.

In the meantime, hope y'all enjoy!

It just occurred to me that we rarely see AJ feeling vulnerable in the show. I guess she really does cry on the inside. Applejack sprite

Good work as always, AM. I always look forward to it. I wish I could join more of your streams, but I've been pretty busy lately ;P

I think there's something really beautiful about the honesty of strong emotions and you did a nice job showing that. Poor Apple, I hope the hurt heals. It usually does, or at least dulls over time. Anyway, nice work on this piece.

One comment is that if she was crying that much her eyes would at least be a little bloodshot.

I absolutely love this piece.  The details is crazy good.

Not going to lie but, when I saw this it hit deep and made me watery eyed a tiny bit.  Reason's I can't explain why.

To me it feels like she has a deep emotional pain that she is having a hard time dealing with.  But at the same time she feels like she needs to be strong but can't do it alone.

I'll always say these and nothing will change my mind but, AJ is best pony to me always.
