Afternoon Nap by MoreVespenegas Afternoon Nap by MoreVespenegas
Applejack is taking a nap after a job well done.
Rainbow Dash isn't, she's been asleep since this morning.
This one is different from my other stuff with a slightly more bold approach to color. Let me know how you guys like it and what not.

EDIT: :iconcosmicunicorn: took the time to do an awesome critique of this here [link]

Go check it out, it's very informative.

I really love it, you transcribe the heat very well (the colouring and the shadow of the leaves are very good) , and the surrounding bushes give me the feeling of a comfy shelter of leaves and branches, really relaxing ! :D

I wouldn't be against a little something in the "middle hole", it look a little bit like a cliff

Anyway, Good Job !

Thanks. It was suggested I break up the leaves so the open space is not so abrupt and more in context. Your idea might work too.  
I don't really come back to old work usually though but it's nice to keep in mind for later stuff.

So Rainbow Dash didn't crash into the tree and knock herself unconscious, dislodging apples that cascaded down onto Applejack and knocked her unconscious also as well?

Probably.  
It would be extremely unlikely.

This picture is great in the fact that just looking at it makes me more relaxed, I can tell that is what you were going for, and is very evident, I would totally lean against a tree and just take in the stillness of my surroundings and the idea of having a conversation or having a friend near by just adds to the overall involvement of the viewer, this also shows that even Rainbow Dash and Applejack who are always in competition with each other can agree that everybody needs some relaxation, this is like stress therapy, very well done.

It's perfect, only thing that I don't like is the structure of tree in the area down-right of Dashie's front hoof on the branch. It somehow doesn't fit in for me.
Reply
:iconmorevespenegas:
MoreVespenegas Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah I was indecisive as to what type of tree I wanted to model that tree on and the branch structure is a little wonky. I just need to use references more.

Not much the branch as the leaves/lightning of the leaves behind - it does look strange. I mean - the structure ... get it? :)

Yeah I got a critique to break it up and let some sky through to mirror the dappled shade on the bottom. I just need more practice with trees.

Ah, that's such a lovely picture! The background, the color and the lighting are all great; just looking at it is enough to make me want to settle down for a while and nap in the shade, too. :)

They work hard and then they... rest because work is tiring.

Well one of them works hard.
But I guess napping can be exhausting too, sometimes you just have to take a break in between them.
