Arguably the last installment in the "action-pose" series goes to our favorite background pony Applejack.

I was sort of figuring out whether I should go for the shotgun or her swinging with a rope, the latter being more relevant to platformers. I decided to go with the shotgun, because people really seem to like it, it also makes for a nice pose.

Mind that I didn't put any real effort in the actual shotgun, so any gun enthusiasts who decide to bitch about it; fuck off, to any who don't, thank you.

Aside from the feet, and her right hand, I'm pretty pleased with this.

Also, did this during the Livestream last Sunday, if you missed it, you really missed out. The co-host were quite hilarious and we had an overall good time. Follow me on Twitter to stay up-to-date on stream times.

Yes, Applejack is part of the main cast, thatsthejoke.jpg

Huh. First time I saw this pic, I thought she was holding a pump action instead of a double barrel...

Yea, this is a picture that is begging for a second take with proper references and what have you.

Shouldn't the gun have her cutie mark on it? To show, like, who's gun is it?

It's a common theme I see in FPS mods and I think it's incredibly tacky. Just because they all have their own logo isn't much of a reason to plaster it on everything.

Nothing inherently wrong with that, just my take on it.

From what I remember, I actually forgot to flip the image back to its original orientation. Eh, whoops?

I love everything about this picture. The pose, the look on her face, and especially the shotgun. It kinda reminds me of the FG-42.

I was just thinking the same thing! It looks like the lovechild of the FG-42 and the Olin/Winchester Salvo Rifle, and I want one for real.

I want to see her shoot it- thus sending the gun into the air.
