Winter Timbers

Little quick piece.

Had a similar scene thumbnailed earlier this year, without the timberwolf, then I had the idea to flesh that composition and colour scheme out into a bit bigger something. Not too complex brushing and all that.

It's a slightly different angle, a lower angle, and a lot of the subjects facing primarily towards the camera, or lined up towards it. So there was depth play needed. And as bonus I got to get at least a bit of "giant creature" vibe in it. Although I want to make a proper giant creature piece somewhere in the future. (Read, possibly literally cloud touching)

Anywho, Of course it had to contain Applejack. Why not right?

A strange, ululating cry was heard throughout the land that day. Many still speak of how they had never heard such emotion in a sound, insomuch that many scarcely believe it even came from a mortal. But I know the truth. I heard it in all it's alien charm. That strange, beautiful, unique sound....


"OHSHOOTOHSHOOTOHSHOOTOHSHOOTOHSHOOTOHSHOOTITSGONNAGETMEITSGONNAGETMEITSGONNAGETMEOHSHOOTOHSHOOTOHSHOOTOHSHOOTOHSHOOT!!!..."


A sound I shall never forget, as long as I live. 

Well drawn, and well done.

Rarity: Huh? Applejack? WHAT'S GOING ON?
AJ: RUN RARITY!!! RUN!!!!
R: What? What are you talking about?
AJ: NO TIME! RUN!
R: HUH? What is the matter with y? Ahhhh! WHAT IS THAT HUGE THING COMING IN OUR DIRECTION?!
AJ: GOSH DAMN IT! RUN!!!
Which she promptly did.
R: What is that thing?
AJ: A don't know! It kept chasing me after ah buck that tree.
R: What tree?
AJ: Uh... Well, the one who looked like a apple tree...
R: Are you sure it was a apple tree?
AJ: Uh, yes. Maybe?
ROAR!!!!!
R: Whatever the reason... *pant pant* It's your fault!
AJ: My fault? Ah just bucked a tree!
R: Well, go explain that to that thing! I'm be running to my place.
AJ: Are you mad? Ah can't do that!
ROAR!!!!
AJ: Seems to be too furious to reason... If it can reason...
R: What should we do? We should be safe in town...
AJ: Ponyfeather! We got to run away from there!
R: W-what?!
AJ: If we run there, it will follow us and could attack and destroy the town!
R: Oh my goodness! You are right! Then, what should we do? Have any plan?
AJ: Plan?
R: Yes. You're the one who defeated that previous big timberwolf, right?
AJ: Me? It was Spike! He threw a rock in its throat and... Hey! Do you think it would work again?
R: I don't know. Do you see any rock big enough for that throat? And how we are supposed to throw it in it?
AJ: Uh... *sigh* Gosh darn it! We can only run.
R: What about running to the castle of the Two Sisters?
AJ: Why there?
R: Uh... It just came out...
AJ: Is it about the tapestries again?
ROAR!!!
R: Do you think it is the right time for me to think about tapestries?
AJ: Ah'm asking you the same!
R: Uh...
AJ: Then, it is decided. We're going there!
Rainbow Dash suddenly appeared flying by.
Rainbow Dash: Hey guys! Why are you running?
AJ: We are running away from that!
RD: Whoa! What the heck? Is that a giant timberwolf?
R: Please Rainbow, go get Twilight and Fluttershy and meet us the castle of the Two Sisters!
RD: Huh? Why there? *sigh* Is it about the tapestries again?
R: There is no time! Hurry!
AJ: Come on D-
ROAR!!!!
AJ: Dash! We are seriously in a pinch here!
RD: Got it! See you there!
She flew in the direction of Ponyville.
AJ: Fluttershy?
R: You see somepony else to reason that huge beast?
AJ: Uh... DASH!! DASH!!! WAIT A MINUTE!!!
Rainbow flew back.
RD: What?
AJ: Bring Pinkie too.
R: W-what for?
AJ: Plan B.
RD: Plan B?
R: Huh?
AJ: Her party cannon? You know... for the rock?
R: Oh.
RD: What rock?
R: Go Rainbow Dash! We don't have much time!
RD: Uh... okay?
She headed again for Ponyville.
R: *pant pant* You... you found one?
RD: Once we'll get there.
R: Are you insane?
AJ: Uh.... M-maybe? Any any better idea?
R: *pant pant* You know that Pinkie won't forgive you to using it for a lethal reason?
AJ: Ah know.

Amazing work

See, this is why we need to pave over Equestria. If there were nothing but parking lots, this sort of thing would never happen.

This is marvelous.

Of for the love of Celestia's sparkly golden crap, just 2 hours for such a masterpiece, not "lil' quick piece"!

This has got to be the best Poney piece I ever saw... because I'm not at all into the fandom but I LOVE this pic! There's a great element of depth here, and the blurriness of the background only enhances that feeling. You get a clear sense of masses: tiny Poney, HUGE critter pursuing him. The details and colouring are delightful :) love how that disturbed snow in the back gives the impression the beast is crashing forward while pursuing his prey. Really well done. :heart:
