Description

Saturday Art Stream piece.
Since I try to start and finish art all in one session during these, I do kinda want to make it. So I went with Applejack, even though I was hoping to do more finale episode art this month's Saturdays before I switch to FCW eventually.

Went with some new things. This week I had been making a bunch of different types of Applejack, so I took one of the sketches and made it into a full piece... adding even more new thingies, new style of hair, slight change in light setting than usual, and such.
Had fun with the hair, although a lot of it ended up covered under the post-process layers.

It's kinda nice getting back into a more "design" mode, adjusting shapes, heads, etc. to make everything work together. In this case the thinner legs were the main carry point.

Anyhow, something slightly different, but not so much different... because AJ...

I LOVE this piece, the shading and lighting is amazing <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> While yes, anatomy is off, it's your style, and that's what I like about it <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> It's amazing to see and compare others styles to eachother. It truly reflects the artist themselves- in a way. But back onto the piece itself!

I'm not the biggest fan of the hair, I think it could use a bit more detail, but hey, that's just me ^w^ The shading is absolutely magical. With all of your pieces, I can't decide whether its a clay, 3D, or 2D figure, you put so much depth in your artwork, and I love that!

The expression on AJ is great, and realistic, as if she's content and calm <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

So yeah, keep it up Monkey <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>
