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’s gonna go to San Francisco next week, so we’ll be gone for around four weeks. We’re gonna miss y’all.
((I’m going to be in the United States for two weeks, but I’ll need one week prior for preparations and probably one week afterwards until I’ll be able to draw Appledash again. I’ll take my tablet with me, so maybe I’ll stream a normal picture during American primetime though, since I’m from Europe this will be the first possibility for my American watchers to actually see my streams at a convenient time. I’ll announce the streams on my deviantart and modblog.))
((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.))
I’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.))
((I broke a bit with the whole videoblog premise here with showing Scoots’ thought-process and all, but I was afraid that the “joke” wouldn’t be obvious without the thought-bubble. And yeah, I was also pretty lazy with that update, sorry for the excessive copy-pasting. I’ll make up for it with another update in the next 24h!))
((Awwww, aren’t they cute together?
A couple of people asked me, who Derpy’s “sweet roommate” is, that I mentioned in the post where she broke the roof. That was just a random little shoutout to a tumblr-OC I quite like, Honey Dip.))
((Oh look who’s decided to stop playing Diablo 3 for a while so he can finally put up a quick update. Also, self-insertions much, not only the book AJ is reading, but RD also got the same fracture I was suffering from when I started this blog.
That was only half of all the questions I’ve got regarding RD’s wing, sorry if your question wasn’t shown, I had to limit the picture size!))
((Drawing plows is hard. And I kinda botched the anatomy. Oh well! Thanks to anypony who was in the livestream, it was fun! <3))
Since Derpy and her sweet roommate moved their Cloudhouse near mah farm, something like that happens every single time we talk about confectionery.
((Sorry for the lame/boring update. I’m playing around with the whole standing-poses thing and trying to find a good looking but fast shading style. So something simple for today.
And seriously guys, over 1’000 followers! Thank you so very much for that. <3))
