Aw!!! So beautiful...!!! It's too bad we will never see AJ's parents on the show because it was already confirmed that they're dead... unless there's a flashback or something... but still, it's really sad...
wow this is a great picture! looking forward to the comic! I wonder if the show will ever have a flash back with AJ and Macintosh's parents. I'd love to see a sad story be told on FiM at least once. But be great too if her parents were alive and just had to travel a lot. I personally though think the sad story would work best in the actual show since it's more common then one would think, kids being raised by their grandparents.
Comic, you say? I am interested, very. And if it's in this art style then all the more so because that is some mighty fine art right there. The dad looks fantastic. Mom too, but that back leg looks very... off. Odd. WHy does her stomach overlap her thigh if the thigh should be outwards? Otherwise the lighting and the coloring look good (AJ could stand to be a bit lighter on the left since she's right in front of the setting sun, and her thigh is somehow lit instead) and the overall aesthetic appeal is VERY high. I can't wait to see more in the comic.
Also, the very first thing I thought of when I saw the seeds in her Dad's cutie mark? I thought his name would be Poppy Seed. He's her pop, her Pappy, after all. Of course, Appleseed fits the Apple Family far better I suppose.
