Welp, I guess it was time to make Applejack again.
I've not made her in a while, about a 24 hour while that is...

It's been fun making her in limited colour usage. And I don't make line based art that often either. It's a different pacing. A bit relaxing because it's different than my usual paintings.

Bonus is it allows me to make "finished" pieces without having to spend too much time on it and figuring things out, while trying out different proportions, anatomy, etc.
If I'd have to shade this (in my usual style), I'd have to figure out all the shapes and forms, light and more.

Anyhow. I'd personally say there's never enough Applejack. So here ya go, hope y'all enjoy it, though!

I noticed you removed the paper texture from inside Appeljack. I liked the other drawing you did with Applejack on the fence where you could still see the paper texture through the character. It gave the image a little more patina and homogeneous-ness. I can understand why you'd remove it though.

Maybe it's just me but I preferred the style of your previous drawing with AJ sitting on the fence.

Styles look the same to me. Coloring is a bit different, but still minimal and muted. The lines are bold and smaller contour lines are left uncleaned. Maybe a little less stray and fray marks to scuff the edges adding texture/grit. The biggest difference is the lack of cohesiveness. The paper (background) texture was removed inside Applejack, where in the Fence drawing you can still see the paper (background) texture peeking through giving the impression it was all drawn on real paper. If the artist decides to reapply the texture throughout the entire image, they will look the same.

Lovely drawing. It's expressive and vibrant. I would love a whole comics with that work for each picture.

I would have drawn her with hands, but anyway
