Cowgirl Applejack by kuro-rakuen Cowgirl Applejack by kuro-rakuen
My first completed pony art of 2012 =D With copy+paste description from the Arena that is sad and broken right now:

I’m not really sure what this is….G1 Applejack with G4 Applejack’s hat? A cowgirl Applejack? I don’t know =P But here she is, in my favorite half-rearing pose that I totally overuse. I was trying to be a little more dynamic with the colors and shading than I usually am, but all the pink and yellow in the background dulled the effect quite a bit. (To be fair, usually my ponies are simply colored and shaded because I want to stay closer to the original style…but experimenting is fun too! )

Inked traditionally with microns, colored with Photoshop

REally cool seeing G4 AJ's hat on her G1 self. Kind of funny cause I made them both the same pony in my G1/G4 fanfics! XD  Anyway good job on the non-G4 art style!

I've read some of the My Little Short Stories thing. I wonder when you sleep, writing so much!

Anyway, Zombie Magic Star is the best thing ever. It can be so dark and so hilarious at the same time.

How'd Applejack get to be immortal anyway, or is the answer in something I haven't read yet?

This is by far my favourite Applejack! Got the looks and sweetness of G1 (my gen!) but with the attitude of G4 Applejack. It's a shame they ditched her after Rescue at midnight castle, the original series really didn't give her any opportunity to shine!

I guess there should be a pony museum somewhere...

Evolution of Pony-dom-from G1 to G4. I think after G1, the ponies lost weight.

I really like this, but her hair is wrong and there are only suppose to be 3 apples on her cutie mark... can you fix that???

Well, I'm glad you like my art, but you seem to be mistaking [link] for [link] . And I actually did this art based off of my actual toy pony anyway, who has 7 apples on her cutie mark and wears a green bow in her tail. So no. Her hair is exactly like it's supposed to be and her symbol is accurate.

It's accurate for the one you were drawing. But not accurate for the current one.

:iconkuro-rakuen:

But I'm not drawing the current one. I'm drawing the 80's one. So there shouldn't be a problem. I'm not following how the fact that my G1 Applejack looks like G1 Applejack bothers you...? And I'm even more confused as to why you think it's okay to ask an artist to edit their artwork to suit you. :iconareyouseriousguyplz:

I wasn't ask you to change it to suit me. So please ask something like that before jumping to conclusions. I did not know of the older serious so I did not know of this version. Thanks. I wasn't trying to start a fight.

You said "can you fix that???" to be like how you wanted it. I don't know how that's anything BUT asking me to change it to suit you. But okay. I wasn't looking for a fight either.

Oh my Lord, actual G1 art! Kudos to you.

Anyhow, I think this is lovely. I love the coloring, shading, and her cute expression!

Personally, I love G4's art style, characters, and overall show better... But I also adore G1! ^_^ Nice to see another person who does as well.

Yuperoonie! I didn't like G3 though... I didn't like the art too much, and it really never appealed to me. I'm not going to bash it though, like a lot of people. <_<

I'm okay with the G3 art, but it seems pretty poor quality in a lot of places. The ponies look really awkward in a lot of screencaps and in the storybooks. (Of course, G1 was the same way, haha....) And the show itself is definitely over-the-top girly...but hey, ponies are ponies (as long as they're not G3.5 =P ) so I do like the G3s too =)
