Shiny shiny applejack! :3
Only have two left of the Mane 6 characters, woho!

Made in corel painter 12. Some parts of the coloring was done with my non-dominant hand (I'm training to become ambidextruous).

Awesome pose, awesome lighting and once again, awesome hair. I also really like her eyes, at least the one that's visible.

I do NOT like realistic ponies. In fact, I think they look creepy.
YOURS, I love.

Any chance of we seeing Celestia, Luna? Or maybe Big Mac, Cadence, Shining Armor, Cutie Mark Crusaders or Granny Smith?

Woo yeah!! When viewing such awsome artwork I really don't care whether its my favorite character I'm looking at or not, but I just couldn't help but smile when I saw you did a Shiny of Applejack ^^ She's my favorite pony right after Fluttershy, and this is obviously a job well done. Oh and I really wish you luck with your ambidextruous training, I can't even imagine what a challenge that must be. Even if someone isn't naturally ambidextuous, I think some lean more towards it then others, where as the rest are completely one hand dominant. I wish my right hand wasn't so dominant, when using my left hand I really am close to useless....although with practice I got better at carrying and typing with it. Goes to show even a little bit of practice goes a long way. But as for something such as writing and drawing....I'm envious of those that can. I really, really wish you the best of luck. If it really is important to you please don't give up, either way I'm sure it'll come in handy regardless, especially for an artist such as yourself. As for this....I could've never guess you were using your "bad hand" for parts.

I'm training to becoming ambidextruous mostly due to ergonomical and health reasons, I do not wanna end up with CTS in my dominant hand like some of my art friends. So being able to switch hand while working, to give the other one some rest, feels like a very good strategy.

It's mainly just a matter to training your muscles in your non-dominant hand, I do believe that left-handed people like me might be quicker to become ambidextruous, since we are forced to use right-handed tools in many other situations in our lives. But I do not believe that it's impossible for anyone who has two functioning hands to force themselves to become ambidextruous.

Ah I gotcha, that is a very smart and clever reason to work on training your right hand. I do hope it helps you avoid CTS, it's hard to see how that wouldn't be a great prevention strategy. I'm sorry though that some of your friends have to live with it, I do hear a good amount of CTS cases come from people who are often involved with art, hand writing, and typing too (which is the one what worries me in particular..idk how true it is.) For typing I really can't think of any good preventive measures to take other then spending less time typing...which isn't a good solution for most. But as for writing and artwork your method is inspiring and I really wish you the best of luck. I never thought about that but now that you mention it I can see how it might be at least somewhat easier for someone left handed to adapt to their right hand better. I remember when I was younger I didn't meet left handed people often and when I did they sometimes complained about how many tools are designed for right handed people. I wondered why that is, but I guess right handed people really are more common? I wonder why...but at least on the positive side it got people like you more accustom to using your right hand. Unlike people like me who are close to useless with our left hand. But I'm glad you think it's still possible for someone to train themselves to become ambidextruous despite how good they are in the beginning. As long as you have two functioning hands I believe that too. Thank you, you helped me not convince myself its pointless to try. Again, I wish you a lot of luck, and as for as I can see your already well on your way to being ambidextruous :)

About 10-20% of worlds population is apparently left handed. There are some stupid myths saying things like lefties are more "clumpsy" and such, when it's more that everything around you is made for righties. However, it's also common that left-handed are more creative thinking, which has something to do withour brain-halves. Although some people misread this information and thinks that you have to be a leftie to easier become skilled - which is not the same as being creative.

I love how you added in the pink, and the linework on her mane and tail is really excellent and dramatic!

I know this may be asking much, but (with submission) when you finish the series, might you consider doing a simple collage of all of the shiny six into a single deviation?

Of course, I completely understand if you decline for artistic reasons, like if you think having them all together would distract from the details you worked so hard on for each individual character, or heck, for any reasons really (they're your pictures after all, I have no delusions of ownership or right to tell you what to do with them)!

Just a humble suggestion. ^^; Good luck with the ambidexterity training! :D

I don't think I'll put them all into one deviation, I don't really see a reason to post the same of that content twice. :)
