Howdy there, and welcome toAAAAAAAAAAAAPPLELOOSA!
I gotta say, I had a ton
of fun on this yellowheart Braeburn who is the first part of an Apple family collection for
His hair nearly drove me up a wall, and I'm definitely
not a tailor or a milliner yet, but designing and working the pose was an absolute blast. I mean, if you get asked to make a Braeburn, what choice do you have except to pose him rearing back shouting? NONE! No other choices.
And even more, I had at least as much fun making the stand/railroad platform as I had in making the actual pony. I actually really enjoy making props for the ponies, whether it's stands or trees or whatever, and the railroad platform was a lot of fun. For one, I've never had to go search for weathered and warped pieces of wood to use before; that was a fun experience. And I've never really been interested in pyrography, so getting to do some of that was fun as well.
All in all, this has been one of my favorite ponies to design and make, even taking into account the horrible clothing and the mistakenly shaped face (not long and square enough for the actual show's male ponies) and the long, green discoloration in the wood on one side.

A belated, but heartfelt, thank you to EqD for running this in one of their customs compilations.
