Applejack by K-Bo. by kevinbolk Applejack by K-Bo. by kevinbolk
Posting the ponies I'm drawing for Otakon this weekend. Here's Applejack.

I also included a song lyric that made me think of the character. This one's from "Just Keep Goin' On" by Eric Bibb. Not exactly a well-known song, but I really like it.

Here's the rest of the set:


Oh, and Spike!

I liked Eric Blibb, I got a fondness for southern blues, Christ, with as many awesome country songs there are, there's more than enough songs to choose from, but I'd prolly go for Cowboy Singer by Dave Carter [link] Cus the version I prefer is the cover by Lucy Kaplansky and while the lyrics don't match all that well, the theme of young and hopeful and older and more cynical makes me think of apple bloom and AJ, even tough it's mostly fanon on my part.

:sing:
I walk these streets, a loaded six-string on my back;
I play for keeps, 'coz I might not be comin' back.
I've been everywhere, still I'm standin' tall,
I've seen a million faces and I've rocked them all.
I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride,
And I'm wanted dead or alive.

-last verse of "Wanted Dead Or Alive" by Bon Jovi

Night Before Pony-mas
by *NaraTaree

'Twas past midnight and all through dA
All artists were sketching away.

The sketches were uploaded to galleries with care,
in hopes that bored people would soon comment there.

Kevin was nestled all snug in his bed
while visions of Fluttershy danced in his head.

Kevin was in his boxers, because he never wore pants,
had to get up to write one more rant.

When he got to his computer there was such a clatter
he had to log on to see what was the matter.

Cursing slow Windows, he swore always crashed
he sang to himself, The Monster Mash.

His fans were clamoring to know,
"Will you be at Anime Expo?"

Then someone posted a new dA Mural
Which was not the usual drunk squirrel.

It was a gross little man, with stinky feet
Kevin knew in a moment, it was Acne Pete.

More pimples than preteens the ponies then came
Acne Pete fled, but Bolk knew all their names:

"Now, Rarity, now Applejack, now, Twist and Flutteryshy!
Scootaloo! on Braeburn! on, Snips and Pinkie Pie!
Post on his comments, post to his Wall.
Now sparkle away, sparkle, sparkle all!"

As drunk men with hot ladies will try,
Bolk said to himself, "I must give it a try!"

He drew and he drew, until his galleries grew,
Filled with ponies, jokes and boobs too.

And then, adding tramp stamp to every butt
Kevin Bolk declared, "Twilight Sparkles kind of a slut!"

But the little woman was angry Bolk was awake
So she told him, "Don't make me throw you into a lake!"

But the ponies would not listen, they were underfoot.
They popped out of the screen and said, "Hit mute."

Kevin was flung on the back
Of his least favorite pony, Applejack.

Their eyes, how they twinkled, their tails so merry
Colored so brightly, in green, pink and cherry.

Kevin's droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
His God-beard was as white as snow.

The stump of a pencil held tight in his fist
Was used to write out a magical list
Of more ponies to draw, with their round little bellies
And their insides filled out with sugar and jellies.

They were chubby and plump, right jolly old ponies
Kevin said to himself, "I believe I'm a brony."

With a wink in his eye and a twist of his head
He saw Sarah's face and was filled with dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight back to work
Filled up the pages and felt like a jerk.

Laying his hand upon each pony's head
"I am you master," was all he said.

Kevin sprang atop his chair, gave a whistle,
Back into the computer they flew, like he made them eat gristle.

But Kevin heard them exclaim as they wavered out of sight
"Maybe it's time to call it a night."

No offense, and it might just be a product of your style, but her face and the proportions of her head look more than a little weird here. It's a cute picture other than that, though.
