Appleboom: "..........uh, Applejack?.......You can let go now....."


A couple of days ago, I was trying to start one of :iconbrony250: 's Twi/Bloom Ideas.

There was one idea where Applebloom gives Twilight a Mothers Day card and Applejack gets choked up from the sight of it in the background. 

Then I had an even better idea......

Since Mothers Day is......or was.....just around the corner, (Sorry for being a bit late!), why not replace Twilight with Applejack?
I mean, they are true sisters after all. And it is confirmed that their parents have passed away some time in the past.
So, Applejack would be the one to mother Applebloom for most of her life.
It seems to make more sense this way. 

I guess you would consider this a Half-Request then, since it's half of what :iconbrony250:'s suggestion was and half of my own idea. 

And thank you :iconarwing: for suggesting a really lovely rhyming message for the card! 
You are the winner for what the card should say!  

Sorry about my hand-writing, I'm kind of a bit sloppy at it.

Hey there. Good work on the drawing and your welcome for the prose. I didn't think it would make it into the card but I'm pleased that you liked it enough. They were originally two separate verses but looking at it now they do go well together. I'm glad that I was able to help out. here's a fave from me.

Thank you! I liked that yours was the only one that had a rhyme to it. It seemed fit for a nice little message in a card.

I thought there might have been others that might have rhymed. But it sounded right to go in a card and being as Applejack is my fave I had to make it special.

Yeah I got a strong vibe from this season about this.  Especially how much AJ worried over her.

AJ probably always cared this much for Applebloom throughout her whole life. We're probably only seeing it now that this season has touched upon it.

Everyone was so hyped over the chimera mean while I was super all over the first half of the episode.  Struck a cord with me.

TheFriendlyElephant Featured By Owner May 16, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ya, same here! Even though the Chimera was cool, everyone seemed to forget what was actually going on in the story.
That Applejack was going over the top just because she cared so much for her sibling.

Applejack's hair and tail look a bit strange, those are the closest things to faults I can find. Wonderful drawing, Ian, I take my hat off to you.

TheFriendlyElephant Featured By Owner May 13, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks Cloudchaser! But, I'm wondering, how does her hair and tail look strange? Is it because I colored it too lightly? Or did I add too many locks to her bangs? 
Reply
:iconthecloudchaser:
TheCloudchaser Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's more the size and shape. Her bangs are fine but the hair down her back looks a little too small and short, as does the tuft of hair underneath her hair-cinch. The curve of her tail looks rather stiff, like a bundle of straw that was snapped in half rather than natural, flowing hair. Heh, sorry about all that. I tend to get a little defensive about my favorite pony!

:iconthefriendlyelephant:
TheFriendlyElephant Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's alright. I guess I shouldn't have put that fold in her tail then. That line was supposed to define that one half of her tail was in front of the other half. 
Reply
:iconthecloudchaser:
TheCloudchaser Featured By Owner May 15, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That line was an excellent addition, don't get me wrong. Adding depth to a drawing is most important.  I just think you made it a little long, giving me the overall impression that her tail was stiff and sharply bent to a right angle instead of a smooth curve.

TheFriendlyElephant Featured By Owner May 15, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh, I should have made the line shorter. I see.
