Dancing Bloom

From my Equestria dreamscape, but not from my current dream arc. Although this dream does involve Stone Mane. However I wanted to get these poses down on paper before I forgot them.

    Having become a skilled martial artist  Applebloom working out 01 by Baron-Engel and now studying gymnastics  Applebloom Gymnastics by Baron-Engel and ballroom dance as part of her duties in the court, Applebloom has gained some grace and pose. So it's not surprisingly, especially when she's with someone she feels comfortable with, that she'll occasionally break into dance.

    So on a summer trip to Baltimare to visit Stone Mane she finds herself one evening walking through the city with Stone Mane when they come across some zebra street musicians. The music style is very exotic to most ponies but this time Applebloom has become accustom to it. So as she listens to the music she breaks into this spontaneous dance. Needless to say it captures Stone Mane's attention. This song from Godsmack is not the song that she was dancing to but captures the mood, timing, and some of instruments that were played at that time. YouTube  YouTube Icon 

I hope you like what you see. Please help make more art like this possible by supporting me at Patreon Patreon (2017, square) Icon mini

Super-adorable!Heart Heart Heart Heart I wish somebody would create an animation of scythe-wielding Applebloom. A simple one like this would do, at least.…

She's got some grace.
When I first saw this, I thought we were seeing her as she got used to her new horseshoes.

Well also she was with someone she likes a lot so that helped with her mood.

The bottom sketch is evidence that she's taking dancing lessons from Twilight. =P

Well Twilight was just doing a clumsy version of dance move.
It also shows she's packing serious muscle for a still foal.

Going from left to right, top to bottom, my favorite sketches are #3, #5, and #6.

Mmmmm, Button's Mom in pose #5.... :) :) :)

Yes. This dream is effectively from Season 4, the current sequential dreamscape postings are still in Season 2, and by this time she's been working out almost daily along with her daily chores so she's pretty toned for her age.

Doesn't have Sully's growling vocals, but I wonder if Tabla Toy YouTube Icon by Beats Antique would be something like what the street musicians would play?
Baron-Engel's avatar
Not the type of music that was being played in this scene. However it is like some of the music that one would hear in the land of the zebras.
A courtier, a gymnast, a dancer, and Combat Ready; what a fool Stone Mane is to have not 'put a ring on it', or whatever it is earth ponies do in Equestria...

Well they're not marrying age yet. About 4 years at the time of this posting before they can get married.
