A new Children of the Mane Six artwork? HUZZAH!


Here we have Bismarck and Bucky, sons of Applejack :iconapplejack3plz:, spending time with their uncle, Big Macintosh :iconbigmacintoshplz:. Family is very important to AJ and makes sure her boys are close to her big brother.

And here's my take on the MLP future: Though Applejack was not the first of the Mane Six to get married, she was the first to have children. Bismarck and Bucky are both the oldest members of the new Mane Seven and the new Cutie Mark Crusaders. Bismarck has grown up to be a rodeo cowboy and works hard to remain competitive and be the best in Equestria. Bucky, though not knowing his skill yet, has talent in writing lyrics.



Design choices: Like my other artworks of the mothers, I've given both Applejack and Big Macintosh updates to their looks. Big Macintosh seems to be the kind of stallion who changes very little over the years. I really can, however, see him grow a goatee as an older adult. Over time he has grown a little more talkative but is still a quiet listener by nature. Applejack has changed even more. Eventually she cut the long hair in favor of a shorter style which she found useful for work. Plus, it also looks more motherlike.



Other stuffs: This was my first artwork on my new program, Sketchbook Pro 6, and I love it! I look forward to improving my work as time goes on!

And that's it! Thank you guys so much for all your amazing support and comments! I really appreciate it!

:heart: This is beautiful. Applejack's husband Caramel is away for work, and her big brother, Big Mac, is taking care of her foals as their uncle. This is great and I love it! :heart:
