The Apple Fellas [Colored Collab] by Shaleclaw The Apple Fellas [Colored Collab] by Shaleclaw
My finished half of an art trade with my good friend, :iconearthsong9405:!

She asked me to give her lineart of the Apple Family's stallions a nice splash of color after I did the Family's mares, so that's exactly what I did! Hopefully she loves it as much as I love her picture of Derpy and Doctor Whooves! :icondashawesomefaceplz:

Her half of the art trade can be found here: [link]
Huge thanks to her for being patient as it took me a few weeks to get this done. I know she finished her half long before I was even close to done with mine. I hope it was worth the wait, Earthy! C:

Thanks, but I can't really take credit for the designs of these guys. I was only the colorist for this, my pal Earthsong9405 drew the lineart and told me what colors she wanted them. :)

Any idea on what Big Mac's father is named? My version of him (still alive in my timeline) is named Bismarck. The missus is named Valencia.

In my collab partner's headcanon (which this piece was done according to), the father's name is Hard Cider. His wife is a crimson mare named Peach Velvet (displayed in another piece).

Those are good names too, though. Actually, I find myself extremely partial to the missus being named Valencia (what with the Oranges being AJ's relatives and all). Thanks for sharing your thoughts! c:

Your welcome. I ended up naming Granny Smith as Carmen, which is a type of oak tree. Her father is canonically named Pokey Oaks. Just seemed strange to me to name your foal Granny. Though it is a type of apple.

Thanks! Glad you like him!
Although I must inform you, I was only the colorist on this piece. A friend of mine, Earthsong9405 , actually drew the lineart, so I can't take credit for that. I'll pass the good word that you like it on to her though! c:

Oh, no worries. You're not the first, and certainly won't be the last to make the assumption. I seem to recall Earthy has an identical copy uploaded on her DA anyway, so it's easy to get our copies mixed up. I'm just glad you enjoyed the finished piece. c:

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed both pieces of the Apple Family! I know that I've certainly improved my shading techniques through working on them! C:

Very awesome. Love how you two did the feathers on both the stallions and on AJ's hooves. Big Mac's appearance in the show instantly makes me think of a draft horse, like a Belgian, Clydesdale, or Shire.

Thanks! Actually, I have to admit Mac has always reminded me of a draft horse from his appearance in the show. :3

Man, I dunno what's up with all the spam lately. :/

Anywho, I think you get the gist of what I feel about it, but just in case you didn't...

I LOVE IT! RAGDOFDGDSRAAW!! D:

If it's all good with you, you think I can link back to both here and the Apple Gals when I post up the updated Apple Family image? O: Direct the folks to the mastermind behind the beautiful coloring. c:

Probably partially because of the Fourth. I think it was mentioned that DA's offices were closed from the 4th through the weekend, so they probably got a backlog of spam accounts running amok to catch up with. =/
For what it's worth though, the text of the posts amused me. :P

lol, I think I definitely got the gist of your feelings about the Fellas! Now I'm just sitting here grinning like an idiot. Day = made. And I'm guessing by your reaction to the piece that same went for you. Mission accomplished! x3

And yes, I'd be one very happy pony if you would link back to my pieces when you update your Apple Family image! Of course you can! C:
