Just Like You  [colored] by CigarsCigarettes Just Like You  [colored] by CigarsCigarettes
Guys before I start uploading other commissions this piece has the priority.

Sometime ago I was approched by my all time Idol *Earthsong9405 and asked would I like to color
her sketch of the Apple sisters (original below).
No need to say I almost fell from my chair from the excitement.

So here they are-the most adorable sisters in the MLP universe (and personally my fav pony)
Thank you so much for this chance to work with you♥


I only take the credit for the coloring job,
*Earthsong9405 is the artist behind the original:

I, once again, have been outmatched at colouring Earthy's sketches.

Congratulations on the perfect colouring! I really hope to see you two collab some more in the future!

Oh man, I saw your collabs with Earthy! 8O
Thank you for your praises but whatareya' talking about, your sense of color is amazing! :D
I sure hope to see us BOTH getting more collabs with her *v*

My "sense of colour" xD! Let's call it like that.
I absolutely love the atmosphere that comes from your art, and this one is my favourite in its genre.
I really hope more of these are coming, because your colouring style really suits Earthsong's sketches!

woah I don't know what to say now :D (c'mon brain, make something witty and smart...nope brain error all the way)
I'm super hyped that you think that ;D
If I could give you a little 'spoiler' indeed I will be working on another one of her sketches, but let's keep that a secret for now.

This is fantastic coloring work! You've definitely outdone yourself.

I really love how you colored the eyes and did the blush and freckles. I also love how you did the gentle shading work to show AJ's muscle and back definition. :)

Thank you so much, working with an artist who has such great definition in anatomy was pure pleasure;) and it greatly helped with coloring

bently96 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2013
Ah just have to say.....this drawing is purely precious ^_^
Love the way you illustrated their sister relations, which, I might add, is a healthy one. Some fine face details showing AJ has worked quite a lot in her life, such as that scar on her nose. Yet on the other side Applebloom with a face radiating with child innocent and joy. Have to say, there are a lot of elements which make this drawing a very good one....even perhaps the tiny sun-rays. :)
The only downfall I see (In the technique, not drawing itself) is that perhaps AJ's hair looks a little too much like it was drawn by pencil. But that's just me ^^;
I love this work, great job :D

Thank you for the praises but I actually only did the coloring, the original sketch is made by :iconearthsong9405: and can be seen here earthsong9405.deviantart.com/a…
I love her pencil works to bits and she personally doesn't really like the digital inking of her works. And I fully go with it, there's just a beautiful expression in her pencil drawings.
I could soften the lines in the mane/tail area but I didn't want to take that much out of the original. If it was Rarity for example, such lines might look too harsh on her but I have a feeling the harshnes is wanted when portraying a workhorse like AJ ^^
Reply
:iconbently96:
bently96 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2013
Yes, I saw many of her works, quite stunning ^^
Regarding the hair lines, perhaps you are right. This does give AJ a certain authenticity, rudeness, yet natural character :)
As always (though you only did the coloring here), keep it up :D

I can feel I'm really getting the hold of full coloring, this will be interesting to see with thw upcoming night, indoors scene;)

You incite me so much...oh you XD
Oh, and another detail. I know it may not be in your plans, but could you once illustrate Big Mac in your style ? :) With all the dirt, rudeness and gentleness he appears to have in the show itself ^^
Sorry. 
Reply
:iconcigarscigarettes:
CigarsCigarettes Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2013
No need to be sorry, he's indeed in my plans;)
After this commission batch is done I'll be taking my time to portray some of the show characters,
such as the Princesses, Discord, some bg charaters, and of course Big Mac, I see him as a bit of a challange ;)

:iconbently96:
bently96 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2013
Discord seems to be the true challenge here actually ^^;
But I would really love to the see this variety of characters executed by you :D
