Abundant Harvest by Makenshi179 Abundant Harvest by Makenshi179
Another one from the series of PIRL pictures I planned to make using photos from my trip to Brittany in summer 2014 :)

In the background you can see a part of the apple orchard of a cider-making farm I visited on the trip. It felt SO much like Sweet Apple Acres, I immediately assimilated the farm to it! They make exceptional cider using traditional ways, with much love ^.^
Of course I shared my love of apple bucking with the manager girl, and we had a great talk between passionate people ^.^
And one of the next days there was a gig in one of the farm's barns, it was epic, was totally cheering for the band the Applejack way! :D
Ponies truly do make everything better and enhance every aspect of life!
So of course this shot of the orchard had to be a PIRL with Applejack ^^

If you want to check out more photos from the trip, I made a ponified slideshow.

A little game for fellow Soundtrack lovers : The title of this PIRL is a reference to a certain OST track. Can you spot where it comes from without looking it up? :D It's fairly difficult but who knows, we may have played the same game ^^

My PIRL pictures can be seen as my personal tribute to the characters from My Little Pony and the strong feelings I have for them as well as my obsession of seeing them in real life. It is also a tribute to the art of PIRL in itself and I wish to dedicate every single one of my works to the wonderful PIRL artists out there who did an amazing job creating masterpieces of art and who continue to amaze me with their creations! Thank you for what you have done, thank you for being here!

Nice work ^^
I really like the shadow that she is throwing ;)

But i personaly i think that she looks too "paperish". i would try to make some shadows on AJ herself.
I hope you understand.

Thanks! :D

Yeah I understand what you mean ^^" Definitely not the most realistic, but sometimes I like to keep the vectors untouched, because... ponies! XD

I really love that shadow backdrop! :D You really have a lot of skill in putting ponies in IRL pictures, I must say.

I'm happy that you like it! :D And wow you really think so? Thank you very much, but I honestly think I'm still an amateur, lol ^^" I do what I can, but I just can't see myself among those great PIRL artists I've admired for so long. But I do hope that my senpai will notice me someday, lol! >w<

Your senpai will notice you, don't worry! Just keep believing in yourself and ALL the senpai's will notice you! ^v^ I believe in you! *yay*

Looks great White Cloud! Yay for Jackie!

(Her hat's colour looks a little closer to orange rather than light brown.. but it's not a big deal)

Figuring out how big she is here, by comparing her scale to the fence and it's posts on the right... it seems like she's either identical, or very close to how big I'd think Equestrian ponies actually are.

I may not really like the PIRL art type.. but I can still see that this looks great, and I still like seeing yours. I'll be sure to check out all the PIRL pictures you make! :D
