A bit of a remake of an old piece I made back in 2013: "Always an apple amongst apples"

Because I used to make a lot more sad/emotional stuff back then it feels like, and I've been wanting to bring back some of those (delicious?) tears
So here's my little attempt.

Had bigger plans for the environment and everything, but then I kept a smaller focus. Figuring out if I liked this style approach, and then I got caught up in trying to balance detail fidelity of a statue haha.

Anyhow, here ya go.

Approx Time: 6 hours

I'm not MLP fan and I didn't know about the character until this very moment, but it still made me cry a bit :( Your art works even as a standalone piece, which is totally amazing!

This makes me sad.. Especially since I had a dog who I loved just like Applejack loved Winona

This is wonderfully beautiful. And now I can't help but wonder what the other Mane Six would do for THEIR pets. I bet Rarity would have the finest of gems on Opal's monument....

Darn it, why can't dogs live as long as people (or ponies)?

This reminds me of the famous 'Balto' statue in central park. I've never seen it in person, never been there, but I'd so love to. You're created a beautiful mood and great improvement.
