Lost in Manehattan by Bakuel Lost in Manehattan by Bakuel
HEY! GRANNY SMITH, AUNT AND UNCLE ORANGE, WHY DID YOU GUYS LET FILLY APPLEJACK TRAVEL TO THE CITY ALONE?

Couldn't Granny Smith just, you know, take her there? Or one of the Oranges go pick her up?

Anyway, this is this week's color misadventure! Yay!
I wanted to make a cloudy picture, of lost Filly Applejack. So I did. The colors aren't as good as the last one, but I seem to be better at bright day or dark night colors. The in-between subtle place, less so.
I think this is the first picture on my account were I actually attempted a 3-point perspective. So it was good practice with that. Of course, I purposely left a whole lot of perspective mistakes in there! Get your rulers and let's see if you can find them all!
Ha... Ha... Yeah.. Sorry about that. I'll do better next time. I promise.
All things considered, this could have turned out a whole lot worse, so yay?
That random background pony is an accountant. Too busy to help crying fillies.

Minor Edit: Cleaned up a few lines on AJ.

Well, I gave the episode a bit of leniency about this. Since Applejack was telling the events and how they went off, she probably forgot and or didn't mention every detail. {Like being dropped off by her grandma and such.}

True. Even if she's the element of honesty, her memory is probably not perfect.

I'm sure she'll make it to the Oranges eventually. After a few adventures and escapees which teach her the valuable lesson of never going on long trips without adult supervision. 
Thanks for the fave(s)! :D

I love this pic. This one, not the mental one.

The sad part is, given that Applejack hates asking for help, it'll probably take her hours to actually ask someone for directions.
I'm glad you like the picture! :D

It's a good topic and I like the detail to Applejack's mane and tail. I also like that the perpective is from her hight and we are lookg up at a big city which feels large and daunting.

Thank you for the commentary and I'm glad you liked the perspective! :D
The perspective was a pain, but filly&foal/children eye scenes generally do call for the weirder perspective angles so I'm glad it worked out!

No prob. I think it's great that we are looking from her perpective, gives us a feel of how she felt.

After all that, and she didn't get raped at least once.

Honestly, while I have never lived in New York, I have lived in Washington. She seems to be in a more upper-class area as the Oranges seem to be more uppity types. As long as she sticks to the main busy streets, of places like Georgetown, she *should* be fine from more violent kidnappers and such shenanigans. As long as she doesn't follow any strangers with candy into buildings that is.
All bets are off after dark of course!

Oh sure it's easy to say that, until your boss wants you to be in the office, in that meeting by 8:30 sharp! Then you'll have to make snap judgements during your brisk commuter walk.
"Crying filly at three o'clock, is it a silently weeping cry or a loud bawling out your troubles cry? Silently crying? Can safely ignore without major incident.
Don't make eye contact...
Don't make eye contact...
Safe!
Proceed to soulless job."

Not that I would know anything about this!

It's my third. :D
The first was Rainbow Dash vs. Kracko, which, looking back was very sloppy, dirty (even by my usually standards), and amateurish, but through the kindness of someone's heart, it got in. I didn't even submit it, someone saw it and it got featured. The second was the Rarity and Sweetie Belle Vampires one.

Time in Manehatten is a precious thing.
Some sing for money and some work to sing.
Never such a glance had you running from the city's swing
Be careful or you'll wake up sick without a wing.

I like the result of the angles and depth you did here, it really helped to portray the anxiety or fear of being lost in an unknown environment.

The colors are good too, it makes me think of old London (Like Sweeney Todd or Oliver Twist).

All in all this is my new favorite as far as your work goes.

The perspective was a lot of work, and I still messed up in places. I'm happy it ended up looking like something!
I'm *really* happy you like the colors! I used mostly blue and red for the background with plenty of browns and grays to make it gloomy. I saved the yellow and green for AJ. Originally I was going to go with mainly red and yellow for the background, but then I realized that I really should use blue rather then yellow. As it is a pretty blue cloudy scene and to save most of the yellow for AJ. But I blabber.
