Applejack Silhouette Wall by SambaNeko Applejack Silhouette Wall by SambaNeko
Poor Applejack. I've had this in a near-finished state for a long time now, but felt that the color scheme and design were lacking. Then I moved on to some other pieces, and AJ got a little lost.

Decided I should finish it before moving on again, so here she is! I'm still feeling a little unsure about it...

Edit: modified facial curvature; thanks for feedback!

Um, all I can say the body is a little bit thin, and the forelegs lost its emphasis. And the hat is somewhat smaller and lighter. But the overall pose, color scheme, the autumn atmosphere you create emphasizes THE Applejack in general and shines out the small errors most people dont see. I'd rate it a 4.2

This is great except it looks like Applejack lost her muzzle That or I can't seem to see it right. Add a little more definition to her face (maybe a curve or something), and it would be fantastic! This series is awesome, I like the interesting colors and shapes you use. Keep it up!

Sorry to leap into the conversation, but I was going to say much the same as TecherTurtle originally. I really like the rejigged version. The added emphasis on AJ's snout makes the angle her head is turned at much clearer.

I really like the pose and choice of colours. The lasso also fits in very nicely with the curvy and swirling shapes you've used across the wallpapers. I have several of them on rotation on my desktop now - I love them! They're not so busy compositionally that they swamp the icons, and they're really slick and professional. I don't know if you come from a graphic design background, but those are areas where quite a few design students I know fall down, so all the more credit to you.

I've now replaced it with the rejigged version; thanks for the feedback! :)

Sort-of graphic design background. I have a degree is what UCSD calls "Interdisciplinary Computing and Arts" - a visual arts program with emphasis on methods, mediums and ideas from comp sci. And I am sometimes employed as a web designer (otherwise developer).

Maybe just adding a small curve for the tip of the nose would help make the pose look more like you intended? The color scheme is great, but for some reason this wallpaper just seems a little lacking in comparison to your other ones. Wonderful job anyway! Looking forward to more from you :)

it... doesnt look like she has a nose... i mean due to the placement of those white freckles and single ear, i at least, think she is looking to the left showing the right side of her face.

other than that the color choices are wonderful and art is stellar, as normal.

It's actually intended as a 3/4ths view - the original sketch has facial features drawn in: [link] I was hoping the freckle placement might help to imply the right angle, but perhaps not.

And the lasso was honestly placed there more for style than accuracy. :)

What I would suggest to help with the facial direction (if you're willing to make edits, rather than saying "screw it I'm done" like I do) would be to add the freckles from the other side of her face. If that doesn't quite do it, then minor adjustments to the left side of the outline of her head might.

I agree with everybody else on this last part, though: THESE WALLPAPERS ARE BADASS. They are awesome and you are even more awesome for making them. :D

SambaNeko Featured By Owner May 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not sure if they ever show her freckles on both sides (simultaneously) unless it's a full front view. Tried making an adjustment to the curvature of her face though; is this an improvement? [link]

Thanks for the feedback and praise too! :)
