AJ Appreciation Day.

... actually I sent this in kind of right on the deadline so I don't know if it'll be in the compilation. But in any case, it's here.

Might I tell you that in all my art searching and Applejack loving, this is truly the best art of Applejack I have ever seen? So many people misportray her, but you've not only caught her essence but one of the best parts. She's full of life and brings color into people's lives. She's bright and warm, and so comforting. But she's also graceful. Just because she isn't girly doesn't mean she isn't beautiful and graceful, which lots of people can't see.
But you can.
Everything about her in this picture is beautiful and meaningful. The wind-carried mane, the gentle pose, the smile, the wonderful accuracy with amazing added style...it's all very wonderful.
There's nothing too fancy about this, either. No extreme shading, abounding colors, or detailed mane. It's simple yet speaks so much, and that's what I love about it. There's no victimization here in her being a female, no emphasis on cheap eye-catchers. It's just her being beautiful.

Thank you.

Congrats on the EQD feature!! This picture has a great composition. And even if the BW colour scheme was done to save time it is effective and evocative.

I saw this on another site and immediately felt compelled to track it to its source. I thought the style looked very familiar and now I know why. I have a particular weakness to artwork that plays with the interactions of colors and the world, and this is one of the best that I have ever seen. The moment I saw this I loved it. You have an inspired touch in the graceful way that the wind is brought into the picture, the feeling of peace, and the wonderful treatment of the apple as it represents what is most import to Applejack by adding color to her and her world. This should be used in art classes as an example as to how to create stunning and meaningful symbolism and compositions.

Just fantastic!
