After a hard's day work, Applejack took her hat off and laid by a tree. She looks over her shoulder and admires her work. She couldn't believe it. She got every single....THUNK...."owwww"

Your work makes me impressed. You make me happy. You add so much colors..and sometimes you use dark mixed with light. My little pony bots was one of those jaw dropping moments. You make it look better than the real thing. You make beautiful art. You should try animating. It might be amazing. I hope you become a successful artists! You are very great with drawing. You make dark look unique..and beautiful.I hope you just love what you do. Try doing some other video games. Or better, make your own video game someday. Try making new charactors. Your amazing. Thats all I have to say!

Well, I wouldn't say he should make a video game, but I WOULD hire him to do artwork for a videogame! Very well said my friend!

The whole picture looks relaxed and peaceful. Looking at some of the other pony pics in your gallery, I notice a great deal of energy, even when they are seeming to be doing nothing. As an example, Nightly Wonders shows Fluttershy just sitting, but around her the night is alive and active. In contrast, this shows a similar scene, but everything is quiescent and serene. Well, except for the falling apple, of course.

I like seeing the bright outdoor colors. This looks like the peak of summer when lying in the shade is just cool enough, and Applejack looks satisfied from what was obviously a long season of work.

I love the way Applejack's body is shaded. You wonderfully use shading along her back and flanks to reveal her anatomy. I'm not an expert on equine anatomy, but you made her very real.

This is not a flawless piece, though.

The most troubling flaw is with Applejack herself. Looking at her face, I see something very wrong. Her forehead and muzzle are too distinctly shaded and are distractingly angular. It almost looks as if the top of her muzzle is a prosthetic rather than a part of her. Contributing to this may be the fact that her smile appears to curve up and meet the point where the angular shades converge beside her eye. The result is an unnatural looking face.

The other flaw is the fading in the background. The orchard appears to fade too quickly, but it's the mountain in particular is too washed out. I am no judge of distance in this imaginary world, but the mountain is very faded while the clouds and sky behind it are bright and sharp. It may have looked better if the blue of the sky faded and the clouds became more blurred with the background.

Notwithstanding my niggles, this is a very nice, serene picture.

Wow, just wow. This picture is perfect. I like it much better than the other MLP one. There is not much else I can say. You have captured and used MLP references exceedingly well, and I see you decided to have the apple falling from the tree.

I am literally looking for something in this picture that could be improved, but I cannot find anything whatsoever. All I can do is praise this picture, trying to get to the 100 word minimum. I mean, the mountain in the background looks kind of bland I guess, but is it meant too? I don't know.

I'm at a loss... I can't find anything wrong at all. I guess the sky colour is pretty bland, no differentiation, but that is all.

Excellent work Chris, as always.

a little tip: some motion blur on the apple would really make it fall. when i saw the apple i didn't know it was falling until i saw the loose leaves. without those leaves it would look this apple was floating.
