Strong Petals by Jowybean Strong Petals by Jowybean
I had all these cute apple family ideas in my head and wanted to try and recapture that emotion I saw in them through my digital painting style. 

despite the content being centred around Pearbutter I  did not make this for Mothers day though you could say its an appropriate image for the day. :)

Until next deviation LATERS Bronies Peace 

painted in Photoshop CS6 with my Wacom in 4 hours

Is this Cute :meow: Win :winner: Fail :crying:

I am glad that my words do not fail me right now. If they did, I would not be able to praise how wonderful this piece is.

When I look at this, I can't help but remember a "blink and you'll miss it" moment that occurred in "A Royal Problem", when Princess Celestia was able to see ponies' dreams, and one of them was Applejack in her parents' arms when she was a baby.

I think some of Applejack's sweetest memories of her parents are just that - when they were holding her - and this captures that beautifully. A loving mother and a loving daughter.
What do you think?

This is such a sweet moment you captured beautifully =) I love all the detail you've put into it like the fringe of the blanket and the petals wafting in from the window. This piece just tugs at my heartstrings and gives me a warm feeling at the same time =3 Bravo~

was this applejacks mom? I was suprised that hasbro would allow the idea of both parents being passed-on, as if they thought the kids couldn't handle it; of course I was also suprised that scootaloo wasn't related to rainbow-dash: I recall seeing a pic among these of scootaloo running to her (military) dad on a school visit.:happybounce: Hug Heart

First of all, I love the nostalgia in this pic, even if the episode was just a season away.
Second of all, I love the lighting and the feeling. My eyes are burning right now!! :D (Big Grin)
