Alternate title: Applejack is Best Fainting Couch

So, yes, it's taken me a while but if you've all been wondering when I would finally be getting up a new artwork inspired by the recent season three "shipping" content (since obviously, such a thing was demanding to be done) today is at last the day! I was inspired in this instance by Rarity's fainting scene in Magic Duel (sans ugly dress obviously), where Applejack gallantly races to her rescue because of course, fainting onto soft springy turf and risking getting grass stains on one's coat would doubtless be the worst kind of tragedy. In all seriousness though, and shipping/"canon" or whatever aside I just thought it was a very cute moment, and if nothing else goes to show how far the two of them have come as friends over the course of the series thus far, which is always a very nice thing.

Anyhow, I hope you all enjoy, and as I imagine this will be my last new artwork of the year Happy New Year, everyone! :heart:

EDIT: Alternate blue sky version is now posted in my Scraps.

That was a lovely moment ~ but not the only one ♥ I remember when Rarity (ashamed of her appearance)
 she was hiding under a blanket, and AJ hugging her affectionately :3 AJ is such a sweetie!
And when Twilight transforms them into fillies 
♥ AJ and Rarity looks so cute together ~
What more can I say? Rarijack moments are the cuttest! La la la la

That blanket scene was probably the cutest thing to ever come out of this show, in my exceptionally biased opinion. And yes, I quite agree with you!

^_^  The Rarity episode today was sooo amazingly awesome!! :D   I just made it in finishing 'The Fruits Of Their Labous' before the episode, the last eighth of it around 3 am before I got some sleep, and I'm glad I did.   Cause it was so neat how the writer(s) seemed to pull a bit from the fic into the show.  Hoity, Sapphire, Photo Finish and Fleur being present at the show!!  And the twist of Rarity having totally forgets the all dresses!!!  heh  As I commented "Well, if they hadn't taken so long for the song, she may have had time..."  But that's just me poking fun at something obvious.  All of them staying at the hotel, obviously with some sort of elevator to get to the higher floors. winks ;)  Catching Hinny Of The Hills, obviously The Sound Of Music. :P  Oh oh and all the cool nods to the real New York City; Times Square, statue of Liberty, pretty sure the hotel had a famous name too, all those taxi wagons.   I'm still awaiting y.tube to watch it in better quality.   All of the songs!   The fact that Tabitha did the voice of Rarity, the secretary pony AND Suri!  0_0 I was amazed. I kept thinking, "That voice, whose voice is that!?!"  I swore they pulled in some famous person or a new guest VA.   Oh and that bellhop pony getting all the gem stone tips, I want his job!!! bwahaha  Yes, just.. Yes!


Oh and the art is just stunning too of course :)  Such a cute Rarijack moment.  <3

It was a pretty enjoyable episode. And yes, it was interesting to me how much of it did seem to borrow from my friend's story, even if that must not have been the case (it's also a shame it did not borrow much more heavily, but ah well..!). That was very satisfying to see.

As for the artwork, thank you very much..! It means a lot.

Oh it's my pleasure! ^_^  I'm just always in awe of all the great art; how much it moves, inspires, and sometimes comforts too at seeing those ponies on screen.  :D

Ah, indeed!  I figure, they probably can't take something from the fandom and copy it verbatim.  I thought it was quite interesting which direction the writing team took the for the episode.  On my irc chat it was just pointed out, the episode was almost a "Sweet and Elite part 2" in a way.   It was the opposite of Fruits Of Their Labours for much of the episode, had to laugh at the thought of that, poor Rarity!!  Still, I'm ecstatic with it, my favorite episode from this season, so far at least.   Hey, I think it's also cool that it was Rarity to be the first to have the key revealed for the 'major plot line' for this season too. :D

I'm still convinced that Applejack is actually supposed to be the Element of Loyalty, because she's shown loyalty not only more often than any other character trait, but more often than any other CHARACTER, even Rainbow Dash!

I tried to make her look both slightly embarrassed as well as giddily happy here, and I'm glad you like the results!

I know, who ever would have guessed that Applejack could be so smooth and charming when she wants to be? It's no wonder Rarity went all misty-eyed at the line (horribly punny as it was), I think I probably would have done the same.

Thank you very much for the nice comment~!

Ah, you're doing amazing stuff again, what a surprise. :)

Still lovely as always, with gorgeous shading, endearing theme, adorable anatomical decisions (aka, "cute poses"), and a unique presentation that offers this piece you're own unique, unreplicable style. ^^

There's some missed opportunities in the sky and on the reflections in their eyes to add some more aggressive luster, but the softened tone does have its advantages as well. :)

Oh, and happy 2013! ^.^

You know, it's funny because even though a lot of people have praised the ponies' eyes in this particular picture, I personally feel that they're not nearly as good as some others I've done in the past (honestly, lustre aside I actually thought they almost came out looking too polished to the point that they feel "clunky" here, if that makes sense). And as for the sky, as I said in my comments of said picture I actually prefer this alternate version myself. But, despite whatever shortcomings I'm sure exist with this picture, I'm very happy that you seem to like it overall, and I sincerely appreciate the comments! Thank you so much for always taking the time to share your thoughts on my artwork. <3 :thanks:

Oh that does make sense for sure, probably because the reflection covers such a wider area of the eye just like one would see in some plastics,...

[link]

...whereas with a glassy or liquid surface, the reflection point may be more concentrated....

[link]

Wish I had the more technical terms for these, but that's probably why you feel they're not quite natural-looking, or "clunky" as you say [lol]. :3

And I typically don't like pictures due to a lack of shortcomings -- in fact, I generally dock points if there are NO shortcomings at all (to maintain balance, you know). :3
So no ifs, ands, or buts about it, I LOVE this picture, and I LOVE coming back here every so often to see what other "amazings" you've put up. ^.^

Yes, that thought actually crossed my mind as well, even though Rarity is actually standing here so technically the posture isn't so unusual. I think this drawing of mine looks even sillier in that regard.

Lovely colors and expressions. :D

I too quite like the relationship development; it's a really warming thing to see, especially in FiM, which can sometimes lack continuity (and, by the way, you're not alone in your crazy-shipper mind, my friend - it's admittedly the first thing that always comes to my mind as well, :XD:).

Hahaha, well I'm happy to hear that I'm not the only one with shipping goggles on, anyway! Thank you very much for the nice comment as always, dear (and sorry for my rather late reply), and yes, even in an entirely platonic context I personally think the character/relationship growth between these two in particular is just adorable. Perhaps because they're so different and started off on the wrong hoof with one another, who knows.

Love your artwork, but shouldn't Applejack give that comforting look to Rarity and not towards the reader?
