AJ in the Snow by Pyrestorm AJ in the Snow by Pyrestorm
I don't know why I made this. The idea is not in reference to any mood or experience, nor any trait or perception of this particular character. The original idea was supposed to be more surreal, although that too had no particular reason.

There's a list of picture ideas on my desktop that make sense and have purpose, but I didn't feel like making any of them this week. I don't know why, either. This image wound up leading me to other new ideas, which are also weird, but are a little more refined. Refined weird.

I like Applejack. As far as show characters go, I'd like to feature her more often than most, certainly in more comfortable situations. The impression I've had throughout making this was that she was either journeying to the Crystal Empire, or doing a quick forgotten chore on the farm at an inconvenient time.

A lot of this picture was done with my mind elsewhere. I've been distracted by a lot of things lately, and also gave myself half the time to make this that I usually do for pictures with backgrounds.

Drawn and painted in Paint Tool SAI.

Wonderful picture. This would've made a decent avatar for my fanfiction! ... if Apple Bloom was trailing behind her. And if you added logs of wood on Applejack's back. And if they both had saddlebags.

Nice job, her expression definitely says something is on her mind, the blizzard and sky just make it look like she may be thinking of something depressing

I like :)

You sure made it surreal, and even if you didnt have a particular direction in mind when making this, that kind of fits. This piece does a fantastic job of offering a part of AJ without any context whatsoever. This is AJ being AJ, and AJ is awesome. Thanks.
