Lasso Tricks by RedApropos Lasso Tricks by RedApropos
Trade with the lovely :icongraystripe64: I hope you like it!
She asked for either her OC, or Applejack practicing her lasso skills. I decided I'll do both! Her OC is simply too adorable to not draw. :D
Plus, she's drawing MY dumb OC, so it's only fair I draw hers! XD (that came out wrong)

But anyways, THIS. Oh god this. This was a pain.
I spent at least two hours colouring it with nice gradients, and I even coloured the lines... so it can save looking like this: sta.sh/0egxk6r0ncj NO IDEA WHY! It's never done that before! Ever!

So, angrily, I did it all over again...

I also figured I'd show y'all this. This is what my scans look like before I pretty 'em up: fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/f/201…

I just smooth it out using a filter ('cause my scanner makes it look all grainy), and adjust the black and white levels so it's all clean.

"OMIGOSH, you ink on the paper?"
Before you even ask, yes. Yes I do. Faber-Castell PITT artist pens. XD

from first impressions this picture is just, wow, of all the words I could think of wow popped up first, I think it really "shows off" Applejacks skill on the lasso, giving this image a good look to it. The vision was a trade and gift for a fellow artist, which must have made them happy about it, plus there's 4TH WALL BREAKING, I don't ever see this in an Applejack only image, making it original, the technique is as always at the standard I expect from you Apporos, which is good quality and beautiful to look at, the impact it had on me was all the little details you added, like gripping the rope with her hoof, the force she must've used to knock her hat off, the fourth wall breaking. Amazing
What do you think?

You're the one on a MLP picture.
And you suck at spelling 'pathetic'.
This isn't over a picture, it's over you being a fucking asshole for coming here.
You're the one who's ignorant, you don't even know what bronies really do, we're charitable and we try to enjoy what we like, not to be ridiculed by some fucking 12 year old who has no idea what their spurting.
You're the childish one.

To everyone saying about her cutie mark, I think the artist here chose not to include the cutie mark because of the positioning of her rump/legs. I can't really see where it would fit well with her pose, like would it be on her hind leg? Would we see both sides from her bum in the air? I just think it would look strange.

Gotta say, I've been meaning to ask you for a WIP type pic like that second link, just to see what your inks look like before digital touchup.  Glad to see that it's not just my scanner, and that you don't worry too much about differences in value and that sort of stuff until later on.  

I also want to say that I really, really do like your brush work.  I know you don't particularly like using it, but it just seems more expressive and organic to me!

Wow, I, too, thought you use a graph tablet for your drawings.

Are you sure it was necessary to redo the whole thing just because it uploads wrong? It looks like an error in the file format (or Andy Warhol's ghost visited you), so maybe converting it into a different format (and optionally back) might do the trick.
I'm assuming you did try to upload it several times. Because an incomplete upload can look like that, too.

I just saved the image when it was done, and when I opened it up, it looked like that.
It just screwed up the image hardcore for no known reason! Unfixable. :c

Just curious... Which program did that happen with?
Apart from that... could also have been caused by a data media problem. Maybe a good idea to run a thorough disk diagnosis.
