Where the shoes fit

Next addition for my Season 5 Episode Art!
Episode 6 - Appleloosa's Most Wanted
For more info on my MLP:FIM Season 5 Episode Art Streams

I could've done what the show did, just the characters with a simple background, but no... monkey had to fill it in with actual stuff. Probably just so I could include a certain apple.
While that did stretch the focus a bit thin, it was interesting making this one. Art can often be a bit of a puzzle, having to figure things out and this was no exception. Considering the scene I might've been better of with a different process, but eh... I kinda started and had to commit to at least get it done within my usual one session limit!

If I make the scene too complex, that one piece from scrap to finish during Saturday streams can become quite ambitious.
Just like the Cutie Mark Crusaders just going out there in some other forest which apparently isn't that far of from Appleloosa. Earth ponies have been hard at work in the area, lots of green!
Great episode, though. So many new stallion designs and types of ponies. Lots of hats as well, which I suppose adds a different way to vary the "hairstyles".

Almost felt like the CMC expanded on their purpose, not just helping them self find their cutiemark, but others identify theirs.
Great stuff!

Also... those Applejack moments!!! Wet mane, contest, trophy, disciplining.

Approx Time: 12,5 hours
Time Lapse: Pending
(Got three pending at the moment...)

I agree, the episode did expand on their purpose. They may not have discovered their true talent, but they helped someone recognize their own. I also liked how the show actually made them behave more appropriate to their age with the three not being upfront about the fact that they snuck out causing someone else to be labeled as a kidnapper. Kids can be like that.

It was a nice episode. We got to see more of Braeburn and other Appleloosans (who weren't just Ponyvillians with hats this time), the CMC helped out a poor unfortunate pony who had misunderstood his Cutie Mark's meaning, Applejack was awesome as ever, Sweetie Belle used more magic and the episode's moral wasn't bad either. 8/10.

This scene was one of the funniest in the episode, no doubt. You did a great job drawing it.

I loved it when she screamed "WHAAAAT!?" at Braeburn after he let the CMCs get away again =p

This is a very nice piece, I gotta say.

Damn it, I can't believe I couldn't hold on until it's completion.
Well, at least I saw some of the process and received some good advice.

Nice work Monkey! The stream was great!

I loved Troubleshoes. He was adorable as a colt, and he's adorable as a full grown gigantic rodeo clown! It's interesting how big he is compared to all the other ponies, especially since he towers over full grown mares like Applejack. I'd even go so far as to say he's bigger than Big Macintosh!
