Development sketch for MLP:FiM 2008 pitch bible.

Her original name was indeed Appleseed. Ran into some copyright issues, and now she is Apple Bloom. In the original bible, she was solo in her quest for a Cutie Mark, and "seed" signified that she still needed to grow. CMC's Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle were developed later.

Do you have any development sketches for Sweetie Belle? She is my fave of the cmc. Love your sketches by the way, you've helped inspire me to pursue a career in Animation :)

Aww. AppleBloom is so adorable. Her bow gives a nice touch. I think she is my favorite of the CMC. The name AppleSeed reminds of AppleBloom's cousin, Babs Seed.

Yes but Appleseed was her original name. Its changed to Apple Bloom because of copyright.

It's like every name runs through "copyright issues..." Appleseed, Bic Apple, the five scrapped G1 ponies, I assume Majesty, among other names...

Lol. First of all, this is the original artist and creator of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. So I'm pretty sure she knows how to name her uploads. Second of all, read the description before you comment... ;)

I think Apple Bloom suits her better, honestly. Her potential, like the blossom, is not fully known, but ponies around her can see she has it.

Apple Bloom is a much cuter name to go with such a cute character. 

Can I adopt her?  =P

Something about Scootaloo asking why they should have a hammer Cutie Mark made me think that that would look great on Apple Bloom!

Are the CMC's ever going to gain their cutiemarks?

Personally, I'd think Apple Bloom deserves a paintbrush colouring an apple or a wooden hammer with an apple-like nail. Sweetie Belle fits a music if not singing cutiemark and Scootaloo needs a scooter or stunt performer cutiemark. I'm not saying they need these, they're just ideas. vuv

Hi, Apple Bloom!
