Wanted - Applejack by Lionheartcartoon Wanted - Applejack by Lionheartcartoon
Edit: For those wondering how this was made, here's a video tutorial I cooked up: www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYu6RO…

Yay AJ!  For all you Applejack fans out there, here's our favorite FarmGirl :)

While AJ is not my personnal fave, I do like all of the mane 6.  Pinkie was the one I took more time to warm up to, honestly.
For those following my 'Wanted Posters' series I expanded on Twilight's backstory a bit.  I normally didnt intend to put as much as I thought and I figured that if I could keep it short it was better but while it worked for Twi, it's different for every other pony on the crew.  So I gave her more, putting down a larger chunk of what I wrote for her.

But Here's Applejack.  Next will obviously be Rainbow Dash (since I had the Unicorn, Earth pony, Pegasus pattern going on, I didnt want to favor one over the other)

---

Country mare of the Apple Family, Applejack is hard working very physical mare whose honesty is legendary.  She was coming back from downtown Ponyville Docks with sad news: No sugar this month.

It was only the beginning.  The farm was all but lost to a massive tornado which took all of Ponyville Docks' weather teams to stop from reaching town.  The farm was eventually rebuilt but only thanks to a businesspony 'investor' who now owns the farm and its orchards. 

Only when she overheard the weather team speak of the tornado not being a natural one that she put 2 and 2 together.  A special weather team was paid to create a tornado to destroy the farm, which her 'investor' could then buy and have the Apples work to repay the farm to him while he profits from their wares.

Seething does not begin to describe her state.  She traced his business all the way to Port Canterlot, determined to get her family's farm back, proof in hoof.  She left her trusty hat on her Sister Applebloom's head and joined with Pinkie.

Known as 'The Bucking Terror,' outside several ports, it is said she once bucked a 3-mast ship clean in half with a single blow.  She thus makes no effort to conceal her muscular hind legs.

This is awesome! I especially love the little details like her tail ring and how her hat looks sorta like her regular stetson, just piratified. And the horseshoes are a neat touch. :D

Hm...a "benefactor" businesspony trying to get the Apple family farm through trickery, eh? This "investor" wouldn't happen to be one-half of a certain infamous duo of conpony brothers, now would he? :iconflimplz: :iconflamplz:

Flim and Flam are businessponies and con artists but they seem somewhat poor planners.  No.. they are not the so-called businesspony in there :)  He has a name but it's non-canon  ;)

Hmm...true, true. They didn't exactly do much thinking ahead in the Cider Squeezy episode. :P Still, I kinda hope they show up at some point, it seems like they'd fit in quite well in a world of backstabbing merchants and cutthroat traders.

I'd like to read some fanfic based on this story, seems like it'd be quite exciting! Are you working on writing anything currently? I think I read somewhere you were still working on getting the storyline details worked out, I'm not sure though.

Its a slow and long process... yes, I have things written.. but I'm no writer and writing is not something I Can do regularly or in decent enough stretches of time to get something out.  I do want to give something for all those who like what I did here, but it needs to mature a bit more I Guess >.>

Ah, alright. I'm just glad that the story is being made, even if it's going to be a bit of a wait. I don't want you to feel pressured to write out of obligation or anything, though. :( These wanted posters are awesome as is, and you should feel awesome. :D

I actually wrote some things based on this just as writing practice. They probably don't match up with the story you have going already, but they were pretty fun to do even if they'll never get used for anything. So, er, thank you for giving me something to write about.

A shanty for the cider-loving buck-aneer, "Cider Jackie" (Parody of Whiskey Johnny)

Cider is the life of a horse,

Cider, Jackie!
O, cider is the life of a horse,
Cider for my Jackie O!


O, I drink cider when I could
Cider, Jackie!
Cider from some cupped oakwood
Cider for my Jackie O!


Cider gave me two broken hooves!
Cider, Jackie!
Cider made me fuddle me moves,
Cider for my Jackie O!


Cider made Twi broke her horn,
Cider, Jackie!
It was many a month that cast was worn,
Cider for my Jackie O!


I thought I heard the old colt say:
Cider, Jackie!
I'll treat my friends in a hearty way,
Cider for my Jackie O!


A glass of grog for every colt!
Cider, Jackie!
And a bottle for the Shanty colt
Cider for my Jackie O!

Wow, nice work. What tool do you use to get this level of control on the image distortions? Only thing I can think of that maybe would work is loading the images as textures into a 3D program, putting them on a flat mesh and animating the vertices.

Yay Applejack is one of my favourites ^^I don't know it's something with girls who isn't just "girly" and not afraid to get dirty ^^ Again solid work Lion and I like that you keep changing the background particles while still making them fit to the other design.

I dont think i have ever seen the terms cowgirl and pirate in the same sentence, isnt that like two opposites? How would her being honest work wanting revenge?

Lionheartcartoon Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2013
She wants to right the wrong.  She doesnt have to do any wrongs herself to be branded 'enemy' by whoever wants her out of the way.  Unfair laws are common even here and while she's not out to break some intentionally, she wants her farm back and will do what she has to.  And if the way to get it back means to 'honestly' hurt a few ponies, it's small change compared to seeing your life's work destroyed to make you a slave in it.
