Didn't I ever comment on this picture before, seriously? I remember seeing it before and loving it too, shame on me!
Anyway, this is absolutely adorable. I realize it was a commission and so you probably don't ship these two, but still there's such a fabulous dynamic here between them, and not to mention you have an almost painfully cute style. Lovely soft colors as well... please keep up the great work!
awww they look so cute and adorable how you drew the two of them together like that, especially like how Rarity has AppleJack's hat on and the colouring job is so warm and matches the affectionate looking moment nice work and keep it up n_n
I don't care for shipping myself either, nor do I think either Applejack or Rarity is lesbian or bisexual, but it's just fun to see art of the two of them together because of their contrasting personalities. Granted, this drawing doesn't take advantage of that, but it's still a nice enough drawing that I'm saving it.
Applejack looked at her in a playful way. She swiftly tackled her on the ground and started tickling her around her belly. "Get off my, you ruffian! Wahaha!" screamed Rarity with hope of being released of the tickling torture. "Say it back! Say it that ah'm not a hopeless romantic" said Applejack while enjoying her crushes tickling pain. "Never - ahaha! Over my dead body! Wahaha!" was Rarity screaming, not giving up the fight. Applejack looked at her with a sly smile: "Ah know what will make you give up". She proceeded to give a raspberry on Rarity's belly. "Wahaha! NO! Not the raspberry! I surrender, you're not a hopeless romantic! Haha! Please stop!" was saying Rarity with an apologetic tone. Applejack stopped with the torture and looked at her lovers eyes. She gave her a small kiss on the forehead "Ah love you, Rarity. Ah really do". Rarity responded "I know. And I love you too... my hopeless romantic". Applejack looked at her with an angry playful gaze, while Rarity said with a scared look "Just kidding". She gave Applejack a hug, putting a sloppy kiss on her lips. They've spent the rest of the day embracing each others warm hug and kisses.
