Sweet Apple Acres by josh-5410 Sweet Apple Acres by josh-5410
Woo! I'm done. Sweet Apple Acres ftw. This was much like my Town square piece in the fact that there wasn't much room for interpretation in the original, so not much has been changed overall. Still, I gotta say this is my best work in terms of realism. :D
Completion time~ 21 hours over 5 days.

Your drawing is awesome! I'll be using it as a coverart for a story of mine, if you don't mind. I've seen you granted this permission before, but I thought I'd tell you anyway. If you don't want me to for whatever reason just let me know.

So awesome!
How big is this in inches/cm? (or pixels if this is digital art, but it seems like it's drawn with a pencil)

I just realized I ended up using this picture as the backgrounds to one of my songs without every asking for your permission! :ashamed: My most profound apologies for that, normally I'm pretty good at asking for permission first, but it managed to slip my mind this time. I hope you don't mind ^^; , and of course I'd be willing to take down the video and change the picture if you wanted. Again, I apologize.

Beautiful work, by the way :clap:

Haha! Yep!

Your art blows me away! I've always wanted to be able to draw with traditional means like that, but I'm too inconstant to do it anything but digital right now. Any advice for pencil and paper?

Crud. Already jipped that one. That's the one thing I never do.

Sound advice that I'm gonna take....right after I finish this one. "If you're gonna make a statement, make it a good one."

I would say this is your best work, but my favorite is still your 'Love is in Bloom' one. That still stuns me, everytime. But I really do love this one- one, because Applejack is my favorite, two because "Still, I gotta say this is my best work in terms of realism.", and three because all the plants and vivid detail in this just have me staring at the screen, dumbstruck.
This is awesome.

Oh, and btw, keep your eyes open! Someone is gonna colour "love is in bloom". Just thought you'd like to know, since it's your fav. ;)

Ohh I love the vines on the gateway. I think I have an obsession with vines...Hmm I was wondering why there were cabbages at SAA, but then I remembered the grapes. They might have more stuff to grow other than Apples. The sign above the gateway is also very well drawn. Do you do any calligraphy?

josh-5410 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
There is also that carrot based building in the background, which I omitted. Maybe they also grow some good old carrots, as well. I swear, If it weren't for the apple family, half of Ponyville would starve! :fear:
And thanks! I guess I do some calligraphy.. It's more like being able to copy what's in front of me rather than being able to do it by memory or anything, so yeah. :D

How do you decide what to place in the drawings? I mean you use so much detail in everything not just the focus of the piece.

I spend a couple of hours planning it out beforehand, using many references. I often improvise while I draw, as well. Work from foreground to background, seeing what I could add to make it better and more appealing.

you do very impressive work. I would love to see what you could do on a 6 ft by 4 ft canvass. Have you ever considered trying your hand at painting?

Just the thought of working on a 6'x4' canvas gets me twitching on the floor uncontrollably.. It would take weeks to complete! But I'll probably do something like that for my final deviation or something(if there ever will be one). ;)
Hmm.. I never tried painting, but I get the feeling I won't be too good at it. I really should give it a go one day..

The first little hole on the top that I saw I thought was the sun at first... then I saw another, and another... and was like, "since when did Equestria have 3 suns!?" But then I realized those were just holes in the paper. :)

Anyway, I love these drawings you do. They have a way of making the show seem a bit closer to home. :D
