The first of my christmas commissions! I'm glad I finally got to make Applejack with a hat. I really like Applejack, so I'm sad I don't get to make her more often.
The forelock took me three tries before I even had it close to how I wanted it. Stupid forelocks. Still, I really like the more 3D mane, especially for AJ. The mane may look cream, but it's actually slightly blonde.
Her body is made of minky fleece, like my last AJ. I'd like to make more ponies in minky fleece - it's so wonderfully floofy!
I'm in the process of revising my pattern again in an effort to make the eyes more stereoscopic (able to look forward and to to the side). This AJ is the first step in that direction! Tweaks still need to be made, but progress is happening (Yay!).
I was asked to post a picture of the front view, so here it is: [link]
Keep in mind that I'll still be revising to make the eyes even more stereoscopic!
