Commission for :iconrated-r-ponystar:

This one was a lot of fun to work on. It was originally a black and white picture, but I upgraded it to a full colored picture because it wouldn't have looked as interesting in just grey scale. I wouldn't have been able to make it look as interesting anyways. It also gave me the chance to work on some mirror effects, which is a first for me. I'm not used to work on that!

If you want the know the context of this picture, what better than a scene from the fic it's based on?

Not just any dress, either. It looked to be quite an expensive one. It was bright purple, made of fine silk that shone in the lamplight and had a small ribbon in the center. The edges of the dress, leading down from the hemline, were gold with grey swirls stitched on it. The dress even had a saddle, also purple and gold, with heart-shaped amethysts on both sides. Buttoned to the end of the saddle was another purple ribbon, only this one was bigger and extended over her flank. But that wasn’t enough to stun Rainbow Dash. Applejack had also fixed up her mane. She wasn’t wearing her usual hat. Instead her blond mane was tied up in a smaller ponytail that was also held together by a ribbon.

Rainbow Dash didn’t know what to think. A part of her was wondering why Applejack of all ponies was in a dress. Sure, she had seen Applejack in dresses before, but those were for special occasions. Not to mention, just like Dash herself, Applejack wasn’t the type to go all frou-frou, no matter how much Rarity begged. The other part of her couldn’t help but admit that it looked really good on her. In fact, this was the first time Applejack seemed to look like—well—a mare.

Treating her right, written by Rated R Ponystar.

Like I said, too much fun working on this picture. There needs to be more pictures of Applejack wearing pretty dresses. "Simple Ways" has ruined my perception of this Apple loving farm pony.

It looks like RD is bleeding from her mouth

She's drooling, her mouth is going weak by the sight of AJ in that dress.

Then why did you ask if her mouth was melting? :/ Pointless comment much?
High-Field-Brony's avatar
I didn't ask anything, it was a simple observation. I just thought it looked funny.
