Over our acres

Woooo, Applejack. Oh gawd no, not the Apple!!
Ahuhm... uh yea, watched the episode of course. Second art piece during the Saturday (and by now Sunday) stream.

Wanted to do an environment from the episode, one of the acres. Decided the day scene since my Flutterbat was night.
Before I started I also realised... I didn't have any fully environment focused pieces at all, or at least clearly pony that is. I did end up adding AJ though.... because well... AJ
Though I hope the environment is still the focus.

Playing around with environment, good fun. Wanted to do some (hilly) plains piece in a long time, always kept bouncing into "awkwardness" but I think I managed to get it feeling all right.
Had a bunch of little tiny changes at the end, going back and forth "I'm going to upload this now!, oh wait... change this, oh, change this back, ok now I'm..."
Oh well hehe, it's finally here.

Hope I did it ok.

PS: thinking of putting the time lapse together for this one from the stream recordings again.
Edit: Checked recording, the approx time is actually slightly longer than 4,5 hours rather than 6 :O

Approx Time 4,5 hours

Is anyone else getting Isaac Newton vibes from this? or is it just me?

That's just a lovely lovely environment.

Would love to be able to do this kind of work.

OH MY CELESTIA! I WISH I COULD BE AS AMAZING AS THIS. You have talent my friend and wow you use it to it's potential. I can also see that this isn't the first and probably won't be the last time you impress the world with your skills. I look forward to my jaw being agape once again.

I may be wrong but I think I see Flutterbat up in the tree next to Applejack.

I think it's fantastic that you've drawn something with greenery and sunlight, yet that very landscape is utterly forlorn.

As more of a landscape guy myself, I approve of more pieces where the focus is the landscape itself. 
This is a very midground focused piece, maybe something a bit closer to the viewer would push the depth even more.
Just something to think about, maybe =)
You did a good job with the grassy fields, I love grass in direct sunlight!

I'm not sure if I should if I should be sad that the trees have been eaten, as most of the comment section seems to think, or happy as AJ overlooks a whole new stretch of orchard as new trees grow from the seeds dropped by the bats.
The trees still look pretty lively despite less leaves, so look kinda Sapling-y, so I'm going to pick the latter.

It was one of my goals to keep the situation kinda neutral or towards both sides. Kinda how in the episode neither side was necessarily good or bad. It's great to see it reflecting back in the comments :)

So, that'S what you were drawing in your last livestreaming.

Awesome piece. Poor Applejack. Even if her friend is back to herself (I know, I know, but don't want to spoil), she got a huge lost to got through.

This is beautiful!

Kinda like when my dad and I went to go harvest the garden and the carrots were bad.

You can just feel Applejack's despair.   Brilliant work.

This thing feels so alive I almost can't believe it. How do you make the grass and the leaves look so crispy ?!
