Positive Plant Potion Progress by TheFriendlyElephant Positive Plant Potion Progress by TheFriendlyElephant
Applebloom, are you trying to grow your own Jungle? 

Based off of the most recent episode where at one point, Applebloom is trying to grow an apple into a full grown tree using nothing but a special potion to speed growth up. 
I thought this was an interesting idea so I gave it a go. 

Here she tests the potion out on a Coconut, an Elephant Ear bulb and........uhhh......?a parrot plant seedling?
And the potion was a success! Making all the seedlings fully grown and waaaay to big for the pot they're in. 

"Twilight will be so proud!" she says with a big smile.

I like how you photographed this one. Also, The reds on Applebloom look nice and the "Parrot Plant" Looks flowy. I think those coconuts are rather tiny, But that's OK.

Thanks! I wasn't exactly sure how big a coconut was so I tried to draw them in proportion to the tree itself.

When it comes to coconuts it depends on the coconut, And in the world of MLP: FIM I do think tiny coconuts are OK.

This one is really excellent! The only advice I can give is that Applebloom's head seems a little too big for her body. Scarlet Macaws are my favorite kind of parrot, by the way. I used to see them all the time at my favorite vacation spot. Good times...

I really need to see what your vacation spot looks like. Sounds very nice if it has Macaws! Somewhere in or near South America? 

Sorry about the size of her head, i wanted her expression to be prominent and seen clearly. I tried to get her body to be as proportionate as possible by still looking cute without looking too large.

Ecuador, to be precise. That's where I'm from. My family used to vacation in a place called Mangayacu, a charming little camp in a forested mountain range. There were a few open-air restaurants in the area where you could enjoy a meal with one or two Scarlet Macaws or a toucan perched on a branch nearby.  

I know what you mean about drawing a head bigger to make a facial expression clear. I made a similar mistake in my latest drawing, drawing the subject's head big enough to make his face somewhat recognizable and then having to shrink his body slightly to fit on the rest of the page. It's a mistake I seem to be making more and more often it seems.

Your latest drawing of Snake seems pretty proportionate. I don't really see anything wrong with him. Looks great actually! 
I don't really see it as a mistake, but an Artistic way of making something more noticeable. 
Almost like caricatures except not a as drastically deformed. 

And if I ever go on a vacation to Ecuador someday, I'll defiantly want to eat at one of those open air restaurants, that sounds really cool to see wild birds while eating.

You're too kind, Ian. To tell the truth, Snake's upper body is the right size but I shortened his legs to keep them from being cut off by the bottom of the page. It's easier to see the mistake when you compare my drawing with the original artwork, believe me. Perhaps I need a bigger sketchbook to avoid wavering between the inevitable outcomes of drawing something too big as to properly enhance the details or drawing it too small to fit on a single page. 

I've dined at some pretty ritzy establishments in my life and as great as they were, they simply can't measure up to a restaurant in the jungle that houses indigenous wildlife to enjoy your meal with!

She grew the parrot, too.

 There might have been a Parrot egg maybe with the seedlings before she applied the potion. Probably trying it out with animals now! 

I saw your comment on Derpibooru under the same picture and you said you weren't sure if it was a Parrot. 
And it is indeed a Parrot. A scarlet Macaw to be exact.

Haha, well I hope you don't mind the redundancy of commenting twice on the same pic.

Not at all! I always like to see what the viewer thinks about my art, so I love comments! Here and on Derpibooru.

Nice job, Applebloom looks so pleased with herself.

I loved the episode too, though my favorite part was when Sweetie Belle was waving Diamond Tiara in the air with her magic (even if it was just a dream sequence).

Thank you! Yes, shes been trying all day to get the potion to work right. And she finally did it! 

That was a funny scene! Finally getting what she deserves. 

I'm also glad how Sweetie Belle is now starting to use magic. It's showing that she is growing up along with the rest of the CMC. 
What other animated show has the characters actually grow up gradually? That's why i love this series so much!

Indeed, i rather like it too. Already did one picture of her using magic (from that same episode ironically and the scene i mentioned) and now finishing on another. Now if only Scoot's could learn to fly.

Hopefully she'll get the chance soon enough. I would really like to see her fly at least once! And so would everyone else. 
That's really good drawing of that scene! Good job!

Did you draw her? *-*

By the way, I think it's nicer if you put even a little description on your artist's description space :D (Big Grin)
It just gives your audience at least a little piece of your thoughts. Which is good. Hug
I love this girl by the way

Thank you! Yes, i most certainly did. Shes so adorable! 

Are you saying that I didn't put a description in the description area? 
Or are you saying that it is nice that I always put my own thoughts in the description area? 

I was just a tad confused since you said "it would be nicer IF i put a description in the description space."
