Weeds by WizardWannabe Weeds by WizardWannabe
More MLP:FiM fanart.
I liked this as a sketch so I coloured it up.
Tried to make it sort of Mary Blair/picture book ish.

Applejack was originally my favourite, but then Pinkie and Twilight kept having awesome moments. So now I can't decide who's best, but I still like the honest, hard working farmer.
Here she is discovering a potentially destructive type of plant, she should nip this problem in the bud quickly, she's got apple trees to protect.
I hope she gets more centric episodes, she's underappreciated.

I always meant to do a 'sequel' to this, where even with Appeljack's diligence the plant grows to dangerous levels. I should do that someday.

Thanks, I planned to, but then I started doing commissions, and still am doing them. After that though. It's been on my list of things to draw for so long.

Hehe, awesome! I have a hard time deciding which character is my favorite. Seems to change every day.

"So now I can't decide who's best, but I still like the honest, hard working farmer." Yes! Farmer ponies represent! :D So glad to see a farmer character portrayed in a way that doesn't make her look like a dumbed down hick. I don't like to pick a favorite character (seems unfair since they're all so good), but AppleJack is awesome either way. Really hope we get an episode or two about her soon.

Really really love the texture, coloring, and lineless-ness on this piece. May I ask: what brush did you use on Photoshop (if you used Photoshop that is)? Would much appreciate knowing, as I would like to try my hand at that type of coloring as well! :)

Me too, current known episodes don't center on her yet though...

Eeypu, this is the brush I used, [link] in Photoshop. I found it difficult to use at first, but then I got to understand it better. Have fun!

No problem, I owe a lot to that brush, and to the artist who made and uses it. So making sure others look at it and his gallery if possible (at least as a good way to see how to use the brush) is something I will gladly do.

She is under appreciated and doesn't get to do too much. She's the anchor while the rest of the ponies flip out (I don't count being over-tired as flipping out).

Great expression. The whole thing is very much like a story book and tells a story in one image.

:iconwizardwannabe:
WizardWannabe Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2011
Yeah, and there's definite merit to being the anchor, but still, I want to see more of her in centric episodes.

Thanks, that was the aim, I think it's a challenge to tell a little story as simply as possible. Looks like this worked.

I don't know, Applejack knows what she's doing but that's one resilient little Everfree escapee...

NorroenDyrd Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2011
Oh, in that case she has to join ranks with Twilight - and possibly Zecora. Maybe Pinkie too, what if she knows something about this weed no one else does? ;P
Reply
:iconwizardwannabe:
WizardWannabe Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2011
Zecora would know, and Twilight would have books about it. Who knows what goes on in Pinkie's head.
It's not a major threat to most, just to garderners and farmers. It's a terrible, choking, life stealing weed. Applejack needs to get rid of it before it causes any real damage.

Hmm, just had an idea for it, I'll sketch it down and do it later. Not for a while yet though. Thanks for the inspiration!

WizardWannabe Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2011
No problem, it was all done in photoshop. I used one brush, this one, [link] for everything, the lines, the shape fills and the shading. It's a bit tricky to get the hang of but not too difficult.
I remember trying multiple brushes to get this aesthetic and finally finding this one.
Good luck!

They have weeds?... <_<

'Cause if you'd look at Applebuck and Swarm, the scenes with gardens... o_0

I guess footage of weeding would be arduous, but they probably do have apparatuses for that shit in concept art... :T

I know they're all big on controlling the environment, but these little sucker musta blown out of the Everfree.
There is that sketch Faust posted of Applejack with braided hair and a shovel, planting stuff. I'm sure they have to remove weeds, specially dangerous ones like this.

AJ does need a bit more love and I also agree that she does need some more episodes around her too.

Plus, why do I hear "You and Me, Hoss" when I look at this? :?

Eeeeeeeee!
-ahem.
Last night, when the drawfriend went up, I thought it would be cool to have my art in a drawfrend, but it wouldn't be that one, far too soon, and I hadn't submitted it anyway. Then I saw it was in there.
It made me so happy! I want to thank the person who submitted it (or do Seth/Cereal/Phoe look for stuff themselves?)

The attention this art has gotten has been overwhelming, it's such a good feeling to know other people like it.
And thank you, VirgaRainboom!

It does look kind of similar to a thistle, I don't know much about plants, it wasn't really intended.
I've wondered myself how Eeyore would interact with the cast.

Currently Twilight is best to me, but all AJ needs is a good episode and she'll be my favourite again. Gotta respect a girl who knows the importance of hard work.

I like this a lot. I think she may have a little too much of a frown, but it really is a fine bit of work! Thanks.

WizardWannabe Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2011
She just knows this weed could be big bad news if she doesn't deal with it properly. Gonna have to stop everything else just for this. Such a nuisance! That's why the big frown. This thorny weed could choke the life outta the trees if she let it. No idea how it got there. Applejack suspects scootaloo fowl foul play.
haha I am making this up as I go along

Thanks for faving it!
