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:

No, keep rambling.  I love headcannon!  I know there are people out there who only follow the cannon of the show, but to me ideas are intoxicating.  That, plus your tendency to draw from the cartoon realism perspective, has made the thoroughly intoxicated.  I'm loving it.  So, don't let us or anyone stop you, ok. :D

Aww, well thanks! C: I usually don't really add the teeny tiny details of my headcanon 'cause I'd figure no one would want to hear those. If you want, though, I can go ahead and tell you the rest of what I was going to say. c:

Indeed. As I've explained in the comment, my headcanon has ponies as omnivorous, so all of them have fangs. AJ's are more developed and longer though.

And thanks! c:

That's actually a pretty interesting headcanon. I really can see that happening.

Now that I think about, I stumbled across some fanfics, that explored that idea too. For instance, in some of them, pegasi actually like to eat fish from time to time. And in another fanfic, the unicorns were known to eat meat (as a way to feed their magic), but in time stopped that practice in favor of special kinds of larvae and bugs, with higher nutritious value.

Anyway, great picture, amazing expressions. The rageface is awesome, although I kinda like the one on the left more.

Well, I'm loving your headcanon.  The Ponies are pretty much vegetarians in mine, but I'm leaning more and more towards your idea of them being omnivorous in mine, as well.  Just not as much.

And your AJ's fangs are pretty close to my girl Wolf's.  I'm liking this.

Dang it!  I'm gonna hafta get my act together, and get you to do a commish of her and AJ together one of these days!  (NOT before Christmas, though...for obvious reasons.)  I want one (or a few) of your artworks so much! 

And I know that the girls will have to be in their usual quadraped forms, as I seem to remember that you said (somewhere) that you weren't doing anthro Pony commissions anymore.  (My loss, but what ya gonna do?)  Still wish I could get one of them in that form, though.............

Oh yeah, I'd say you've come quite a ways from the earlier version of this. 

The top one just looks so smug. Like, "Ah told ya I could do it. Now fork over them bits Big MacIntosh." 
The one on the right is adorable. It's just pure "What...?" 
Left looks like she's lecturing her little sister. Cuz she's covered in tree sap... again... XD

But holy s#*t that rageface...  I'm sorry Miss AJ... I'll drop the pear and just back away slowly...

Thank goodness! D: I can't believe I even thought half of the old stuff looked good. So embarrassing... :iconfacepalmplz:

Lol, and I like the little descriptions you gave to each expression. Especially the rageface one. Bro, let me tell ya... don't let her catch you eating a pear. o3o Although, she's one to talk; she secretly loves them. But SHH!!! You're not supposed to know that. O.o
