Fit for Apples



Oh gosh, I actually finished it sooner than I expected.

I wanted to make a high complex/detailed outfit again, since I haven't really done that since 2014... with Applejack.
Because it has been so long, I ended up with a bit different process and result. Kinda to be expected, but interesting to see each style's strength/weakness. Albeit I can't remember everything I did back then... (besides the previous took ~31+ hours haha)
It was also an excuse to do some dress/outfit designing again. Something MLP does plenty already, so I'm joining in on the fun.

When I started this, I knew I'd be in for a multisession piece. One that I couldn't make in one single Saturday. Today I thought it'd even be a 3 session piece, but nope... at one point I just... kept going haha. Brushy brushy Applejacky.
I do think I ended up cutting some corners because of that. Not cleaning up as much after the colour was added on the greyscale, to refine details that don't translate through those steps too well. But, I guess the greyscale was complex enough to be able to omit some stuff like that.

Then there was the background haha, ended up having to redo that. But did manage to use the old one as a painting in the new background. So I guess... win win?

This has been the longest taking piece in years I think. At least more than 1 year, perhaps even only topped by the my older piece I based this on... maybe. Well, it's at that top of hours taken.

Either way, hope y'all like the results!

PS: I do plan on putting together a time-lapse for this... it's just that there's a lot of data, and plenty of minutes to fill with music I gotta find.

Edit: Wow, I did not expect the wonderful response to this! Thanks everyone for the support, y'all make this possible for me.
(And even blasted me over 16k watchers while y'all were at it?!)

Approx Time: 24~25 hours

Timelapse: Pending

This is probably the best and only acceptable anthropomorphic style I've ever seen. SOOO BEAUTIFUL!
