Applejack the Honest by Gray--Day Applejack the Honest by Gray--Day
Dedicated to her honesty.


NOTE: This artwork is based on lineart created by :iconakili-amethyst:, which was used with her express permission.

A stained glass window featuring the one representing the Element of Honesty herself.

I still feel more confident when performing editing work in Photoshop than drawing vectors. It was nice to go back to it with pony art. Let me know what you think of the result. :)

Very awesome work on this stained glass window, it's like a realistic rendition of one of those stained glass windows in Canterlot.

this looks fantastic, I love how the whole thing is glowing and the way the colors are, I can imagine this as just a beam in a dark room, rather than a window in a lit one.

Thank you! :D To be honest, I did aim for the effect you've described. I rather wanted the light behind the glass to be brighter, have it beam through the window and make the surrounding texture darker.
This didn't quite make the cut for such an impression but there's always room for tweaking, as soon as I find some time.

I had no idea! I think I'm fortunate that there are so many pony art websites - someone eventually gets interested in one piece or another. :laughing: Again, thanks for letting me know.

Love the stain glass texture/effect. You should keep on doing more of Aliki's Stations of Awakening.

Thank you. :) I'll check if she won't mind me leeching everything. :laughing:
Alternatively, I could design my own window, even if it'd still feel like I'm taking Aliki's idea. It'd just be the added workload of making my own lineart. And that's not as bad as getting the rest done.

Ah, followed the links to Akili-Amethyst... when I am every going to learn to read. :(
Your texture and light additions really make it look physical.

Yes, unfortunately for this reason, this piece will just have to remain in its two-dimensional state. But thank you very much. :) Maybe I'll manage a design of my own sometime later, once I'm done with my other plans.

I'd love to put in an order for real ones, about 20 in diameter for some south facing windows :)
Have you considered getting the "glass" portion printed on some type of translucent film?

Thanks! I guess I wouldn't mind - it's gathered some interest. Depends if the author of the original lineart would get irritated with me for using every piece for the mane six. :laughing:

Oh wow, this is just....I can't describe it. It wonderful, fantastic, beautiful, and words I dont even know!!!

I don't know if you ever played it, but it reminds me very much of the stained glass windows from Kingdom Hearts, which I love!

I'd love to see the others, if you plan to do them too.

Thank you, Simon. :D The author of the original lineart stated that the design is based on that found in Kingdom Hearts, so yes, it reminds you of it for a good reason. :) I'll see if she won't mind me using the other pieces for the rest of the mane six.
