Happy Applejack Day everyone!  This is the artwork I made for an Equestria Daily banner celebrating our favorite farm pony hero, reworked a bit into less banner-like dimensions.  (I'll throw the banner itself up in my scraps folder for anyone who missed it yet wants to check it out.)

Wow, the fifth season has already come and gone!  I have a lot of thoughts on it, but I suppose I should wait until various artworks relating to it have been completed and posted to really dig into them.  Sticking with Applejack, I thought that she made a strong case for best pony this season, although that concentrated stretch of Rarity to start the fall half of the episodes were hard to beat.  She has really settled into and owned that "most dependable of ponies" title, as time and again we see her being an excellent big sister (Love her lullaby in "Bloom and Gloom"), helping those who need it ("The Mane Attraction") and simply doing the jobs that need to be done ("Made in Manehattan").  And when she is the one who makes a mistake, there are few who own up to it and make amends as thoroughly as AJ ("Hearthbreakers").  Of course she was the one who came up with the idea for how to make Twilight finally feel at home in her new castle ("Castle Sweet Castle"), and her sense of duty to Equestria was on display many times ("Sisterhooves Social", "The Cutie Re-mark").

Whether being a nurturer with sage advice or an action hero with hooves of steel, she's always a warm and welcome addition to any pony story...  Here's looking forward to seeing much more of her in Season 6!

I love both your art and your descriptions. I cannot wait for you to make more art - digging into your thoughts about this season, so eventually I too can dig it. :) (Smile)

I agree with you, Applejack was truly the best pony of the season and I have nothing to add to the list of reasons you wrote. I'll just say that I love the picture and I wish you happy belated AJ Day!

Or as I like to call her, the Element of "Put On Yer Big Girl Britches An' Deal With It, Sugarcube." :-)
