Applejack Expressions by Earthsong9405 Applejack Expressions by Earthsong9405

So I couldn’t sleep last night, and to pass the time I did what I usually do until I get sleepy… DOODLE! :D Aaaaand I drew quite a bit, actually. Among those drawings is this; as part of the art trade between myself and CigarsCigarettes, she asked me to draw Applejack since she’s her favorite pony (and seriously, who could blame her? AJ’s awesome o3o)

All she wanted was snarly, angry Applejack, but I ended up redrawing the four expressions seen in this image: earthsong9405.deviantart.com/a…

I know, I know, the old one’s ugly. Don’t remind me. :C

But they’re redrawn now, so everyone’s happeh! :D I think of all of them, My favorites are angry AJ and the one on the left. And if anyone’s curious why angry AJ has visible fangs, here’s a little headcanon to give ya some context.

The way I see them, the ponies are omnivorous. Their ancestors before they ultimately evolved into the ponies we know now not only foraged, but also partook in hunting as well. As of now, the equine lean slightly more toward being vegetarian, but they do still eat meat. Their main source of meat comes from small mammals (like squirrels and rabbits, rodents), poultry, and fish. I could go on and on about what, exactly are prey animals in this world, but I won’t ‘cause I’m sure you guys don’t wanna hear me ramble. o3o

Anywhooo, that’s why the ponies have fangs. Real equine actually tend to have fangs that are referred to as “Wolf teeth”, but as far as I know, it occurs mostly in stallions. The fangs in the MLP ponies are seen in every breed and gender of equine. However, like humans, how developed and sharp they are varies from individual to individual, but earth ponies and pegasi tend to have longer, sharper fangs.

Buuuuuut yeah. Not much else to say, and if you see typos, that’s because I’m exhausted. So yeah. Ask questions if you have them, and as always, thank you checking out my stoof. c:

Wow... I'm not even outstandingly into MLP, but I must say that these are fantastic. You've very well captured AJ's design while being able to make her look natural in your own style, which is awesome in and of itself, and of course you've drawn her quite well. Very nice!

Hmmm. I don't think that Earth ponies or unicorns are omnivorous. In my headcanon, pretty much only pegasi are omnivorous and even then they're pescetarian. The reason for this is because they NEED the protein in order to fly. All birds eat some amount of meat.

If that's your headcanon, then cool. In mine, all equine are omnivores.

It makes sense that they are (heck, I've seen a horse eat a live rabbit), but the only reason for those kinds of teeth are if you need to make a killing strike with your teeth; and animals as large as the ponies would need to be predators in order for those teeth to evolve.

I love the way you drew her and her expressions! you are an amazing artist!
i especially love the way you draw hair/manes.
Could you show us how you draw hair, I just don't understand how hair flows and how you make it come out so well.
Again, amazing work!

As for showing how I draw hair, I'm not all that interested in making a tutorial, I'm afraid. :C Besides, there are plenty of great ones out there you can use; this one is among my favorites:

I absolutely love this. Expressions are my main source of amusement with art, and this is truly captivating to me.   Great work! I love how you've developed your own anatomy for the ponies and it's totally believable. *gushes*
