Old Timer Speed



New addition for my Season 6 Episode Art!
Season 6, Episode 14: The Cart Before The Ponies
For more info on my episode art: MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

Such a wacky episode this was. With those races and all.
The results were quite nice, though. A pretty good lesson that's not spoken about enough, or addressed. It's often assumed by any side, but not always done optimally, as the episode showed. It had it's little weird moments, (8 way intersection haha),  but overal enjoyable. The designs for the carts were fun to see! Obviously Applejack designs are best ones, for no biased reason what so ever.

Decided to try and tackle a bunch of different things, I like to do, at the same time. Make Applejack, Applejack in new outfit. While also making a key part of the episode, the cart! I've not made a lot of vehicles in the past, so this one was pretty fun. But the reference was also easy to see, being the pre-war racing cars, which were build for speed. I'm not really into cars, but that's was a nice little inspiration they used.

Originally I thought I'd go with a fast motion composition approach, but then it'd be harder to  include Applejack. So I went with a more posing way, displaying the car with a model, or well... in this case mechanic Applejack! Even better.

I've been exploring side lighting this past week, and enjoying it. It's a light I can manage to achieve somewhat "realistic" setting with, with my figurine style shading. Usually for that style I apply a broad flooding light from above, so the shadow casting is minimal, but with this it allows me to have a bit more shadow play going on. It also helps I managed to figure out the colours quite soon, at least to the point of it balancing nicely for later adjustments.

Anyhow, hope y'all enjoyed the episode, and this little tribute to it. There will be plenty more as episodes keep releasing!
