No Rest for the Weary by KittehKatBar No Rest for the Weary by KittehKatBar
Spent an obscene amount of time working on the barn. Probably half the time on this piece was just for that @ . @ Hopefully as I do more I can get faster, because that is just ridiculous. That aside this was quite a bit of fun, played with layering of snow and making things look farther away.

As a person who watched most of this come together and offered advice throughout most of it, I'm happy to say I am really pleased with the outcome.

The setting is magnificent with the barn and sheds creating a marvelous backdrop along with the hills and quaint sky.

The shoveled snow seems to a lot more than what actually seems to be moved, but that's just nitpicking details.

Applejack her self looks amazing and the boots and scarf match her very well. The snow in the shovel though kinda make the shove head disappear though. Again, nitpicking.

The well and barrels almost seemed out of place against such a snowy landscape but the serve to balance the picture well

The shading is excellent, and the lines are wonderful.

This is another exemplary piece of work.

I know I have said this before, but amazing! The shading is excellent, just like on the Pinkie Pie one, snow isn't the same color and you recognize that! I love Apple Jacks face, full of determination, full of potential. It makes me want to scream, "You can do it A.J!" Knowing it will seem foolish to do so. This picture makes me rethink Princess Luna as my favorite. I cant criticize something so amazing, honestly. I love your work, I love everything about your work. You don't forget shadowing, you don't forget anything unlike other Deviants. I love you. Please don't get mad for this not being a critique.
