He requested me to draw Applejack looking like a bounty hunter, stepping into a bar pushing one of those doors with a hoof, while holding a cigar in her mouth. Maybe a scar on her face. The important part of the drawing is that she had to look badass. As I was making the drawing I was getting vibes to "The Dark Tower" and its protagonist, The Gunslinger. So I threw in a cape, and a gun, because why not? It's all towards making a pretty badass picture, isn't it? I had way too much fun with the making of this drawing, so much so that I didn't want to finish it. But here it is, finished.
I now feel like I should make an entire series of pictures taking place in the wild west starring each of the Mane Six. Don't you think that's a good idea?
