Indyjack by World8 Indyjack by World8
***UPDATE*** To answer some comments I've been getting:

1.) Yes, I understand that Twilight could use her magic to grab the hat. I imagine this is the moment where she realizes Applejack went back to grab it, and hasn't had but a millisecond to react yet.

2.) I also understand Applejack doesn't have fingers, so can't grab it. She could, however, put her hoof down on it if she reached far enough, and slid it back. Ponies have done crazier things in the show. Like pick their noses. Or sneeze confetti. Which leads me to:

3.) Stop taking the fun out of stuff.

Thank you!


I found it funny that I was doing an Applejack piece, because I have other favorite ponies, but when I saw her sneak her hat on at the Royal Wedding, she kinda won me over.

Her little sneak attack got me thinking to how much she loves her hat, and reminded me of someone else who also loves his hat.

Indiana Jones.

So, in homage to the epic series, here is AJ reaching under a closing temple door, risking a limb in order to save her beloved hat. And Twilight simply can't believe it.

My oh my, how far you've come. This image is a representation of the work you put into all of your images. Though it took you longer than you had originally expected, it turned out to be terrific. The way you implemented motion and action into a standstill scene without the use of action-lines is a great display of talent. Also, the amount of detail in the landscape is also a remarkable feature about this image. Down to the very grit in the dirt, the detail is fine and acute. You managed to capture the lighting of the image quite well, and I must admit this is my favorite work of yours. Well done, Flutters. Keep the good art comin'!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
10 out of 10 deviants thought this was fair.

Vision: Indiana Applejack and the golden apple, Love this crossover and any indy fan will look right over the fact that she doesn't have fingers and get right to leaving a comment saying how much they love this artwork!
Originality: Twilight in the background and that imprint of the elements of harmony on the doorway just wrap it all up :D
Technique: That sand "wooshing" Effect at the bottom of the doorway and the epic shading making this worth favoriteing, Applejacks facial expression is also very well done.
Impact: 5 stars end of discussion this is fanfic inspiring, just can't come up with any hard criticism for this! Whats that grown thing near Aj's head?
