Perils of a Delivery Mare

Happy Applejack Appreciation Day everyone!  Even though I'm insanely busy with things in both my personal and professional lives, I always seem to have an AJ image in at least some stage of completion and so I couldn't help but hastily finish this one off and add it for the annual celebration of the most dependable of ponies!

I do love the "Applejack is a badass" episodes we've been getting in recent seasons, whether she's taking down Timberwolves or dealing with an ornery Chimera in order to protect others.  She really is one of my favorite characters on the show, even as she cedes the spotlight to others or shares it with her entire family more often than not.  Her role in the show can be quite subtle, but it's crucial.  I'm quite looking forward to the upcoming comic arc where she will seemingly take the lead among the mane six in dealing with some thievin' cattle rustlers.  She's always been the world-weary sergeant to Twilight's command role...  keeping the others on track and making sure the officer doesn't screw up or burn herself out.

And I do hope they come up with another monster for her to fight next season.  That Chimera was great.

the Boots are Snakeskin,
the Folding chair was crafted from Goat bones,
and the Hat is Tiger Hide...

what I'm saying is it can't hurt to have a second set, in case anything happens...

no i like god of war chimera and hate mlp chimera sins in god of war he is compleet clasic chimera like in the most movies like clas of titans with a lion head not a tiger head sins that is worng one i like god of war chimera sins that fight is cool total kill the monster and bring the monster to death wath make apple jack so boring
I would have preferred that they had a lion's body instead of a tiger. 

And the classic chimera was defeated by Belerofonte, a guy in a pegasus.

Applejack definitely needed more love so the "background pony" jokes would stop. They have. I'm happy.

This artwork also makes me happy. So +2 happiness. Much w00t.

Expertly shaded and intensely drawn to boot, this picture skillfully captures the peril of the Chimera scene with little lost in translation. Excellent job!

That chimera is awesome! The whole picture is quite epic, and it perfectly captures the atmosphere of the episode. I loved that episode for a number of reasons; it reminded us that despite the friendship, rainbows, and happiness, Equestria is still very much a dangerous place. Wonderful art!

Even when she's angry, Applejack still manages to be cute. Nicely done!
