Ask Appledash
ratofdrawn:

A collab I did with my best friend *marikaefer. (Tumblr: http://ponykaefer.tumblr.com/) She’s responsible for the basic idea, the sketch and the lines. I did the colors and the shading. 
In both of our names I’d like to thank you all for enjoying our art. It’s great to be part of this fandom with all of you.We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Happy Holidays from me and the Mod of Ask-Flitter-and-Cloudchaser.
I’m sorry I have neglected this blog here for so long. I promise I’m gonna start working on it again in the new year. I hope you all enjoy this time of the year. Have some Appledash. <3

((Who do you think should they tell first?))

Ah really love Dashie in my hat.

Don’t worry folks, we didn’t forget you! We’re just crazy busy these past days and San Francisco was really exhausting.

Also AJ had to help out a lazy human with a stupid proposal plan.

(( Sorry for neglecting this blog quite a bit. I had some time today to do a really quick picture for this blog. I’ve gotten some pretty interesting questions and I’ll start answering again sometimes soon(TM). A lot of you want to know if AJ and RD told their friends and family about their relationship. And guess what? You’ll find out in the next update! ))

Our Mod&#8217;s gonna go to San Francisco next week, so we&#8217;ll be gone for around four weeks. We&#8217;re gonna miss y&#8217;all.
((I&#8217;m going to be in the United States for two weeks, but I&#8217;ll need one week prior for preparations and probably one week afterwards until I&#8217;ll be able to draw Appledash again. I&#8217;ll take my tablet with me, so maybe I&#8217;ll stream a normal picture during American primetime though, since I&#8217;m from Europe this will be the first possibility for my American watchers to actually see my streams at a convenient time. I&#8217;ll announce the streams on my deviantart and modblog.))

I noticed on the post with the tombstone on it that AJ would be around 38 years old, but she doesn't look or act like she's past her early 20's. would you explain, please?

((1984 - 2012 are 28 years, not 38… Also Applejack made her very first appearance in the animated My Little Pony televison special Rescue at Midnight Castle in 1984. So it was a little shoutout to the earlier generations. Plus I think early-to-mid-twenties sounds about right for AJ, she’s co-running a business after all.))

((What is art-consistency?))

((I’m so sorry that it took me over two weeks to answer that question. And that I had to fall back to the old only-show-their-heads format. I promise it was a one time solution and we’ll be back to more interesting and dynamic poses for the next answer. I just FINALLY had to finish that answer, because this whole time it was sorta blocking everything else I wanted to do with this blog.

I drew at least half a dozen sketches for that simple strip, tried different answers, different wordings, different feelings I wanted to express to the reader, everything, and nothing worked like I wanted to. So just have the very basic version of what I wanted to tell with that answer. I hope it kinda works.

Also yay, continuity throwback to one of the earlier strips, where AJ was reading The Apple Games!

Now that I have this huge question out of the way, normal Ask-Appledash will resume as usual. I try to update at least once every week from now on, every Tuesday if everything goes according to plan.))

((Sorry, I really couldn&#8217;t resist. Big thanks to Mari from http://ask-flitter-and-cloudchaser.tumblr.com/ for the idea, she got it while we were randomly scrolling through my inbox at Bronycon.))

Our Mod thought that ‘tis wall of text there may be interesting to some of y’all.

ratofdrawn:
I&#8217;ll join the pony craze with my dear friend *marikaefer (Mod of Ask-Flitter-And-Cloudchaser) this weekend in NY.
It’s also the first visit to the States for me and I’m incredibly looking forward to meeting all those amazing artists and people, so I’m pretty nervous and stuff. But I’m sure it’s going to be amazing!
I’ll be back home next Wednesday and then I’ll probably need some days to unpack, fight the jetlag and calm down, so you probably won’t get any new art from me for the next week.
Anyone of my followers going too? Let me know! I’m pretty socially awkward, but I’d be happy if you choose to say hi when you see me! 
And now I should probably finally start packing… There’s no time left!

What the hay, Ah have never agreed to wear that uniform, let alone to drive some crazy human through a crazy human city!

((The tears in the last panel are tears of joy, because she’s just so happy for Dash, I’m not sure if that’s obvious enough.

So yeah, I probably won’t upload this blog that often until after Bronycon! IC explanation as answered, OOC explanation: I have a bunch of other projects I’d like to finish first, so I’m going to give Ask-Appledash a lower priority for the next three weeks. Sorry y’all! But don’t worry, the two most awesome Mares will be back before you can say Shipping is Magic.))

((A small teaser for the next update, it&#8217;s going to be HUGE. This here is the very first panel.
There are 18 items surrounding that calendar, they all somehow relate to Pony related tumblrs that I love, it&#8217;s a little shoutout to them. I&#8217;ll make a link list to those 18 blogs in ca 24h as soon as I post the next update. But I thought it&#8217;d be fun for some of you to play a little guessing game! Knock yourself out. &lt;3
I&#8217;ll draw a free request for the first one who correctly guesses all 18 blogs! Just send your guess as a submission via the &#8220;Guessinggame&#8221; link.
If no one guesses all 18 blogs (because one or two are pretty obscure, I guess), then the price goes to the best guess!))
