Hats. They are tricky devils. I need to spend some work practicing those. Otherwise, though, have two cute mares who decided to spend their day playing things a little different from normal :o Looking good, girls~ :3

These are completely free to use. Please go ahead and do so!

Ahh, thank you :3 Quite honestly, I think I ought to do art of the main characters in this style more often, since it's something I've hardly done at all since I started.

Hahaha aaagh, I know I briefly commented on these already on my front page, but really dear I must reiterate that I just love them so much! Such a cute idea for an avatar set (and I know I am entirely biased in saying so, for more reasons than one but still, just bear with me here), and you have pulled them off fabulously I have to say... I personally think Rarity's tail came out beautifully, and though it might surprise you to hear it I can entirely empathize with the difficulties of drawing Applejack's hat (it's far more complicated than it looks like it should be, isn't it?). Me being me I always enjoy seeing Rarity wear it anyway, and of course Applejack is also appropriately adorable in her little green scarf.

Anyway, once again lovely work. And congratulations on making the front page with these!

Oh! I was so surprised to see this icon beside your name D: For a moment things felt very disjointed. I have known you our whole friendship with that one very specific and adorable Rarity face, so this was a very sudden change of pace xD But oh, thank you for using it! I'm really quite touched <3

But ahh, as for these in general, I like them as a set~ I did originally want to do Rarity and Applejack together but I had no initial plan until after AJ had a scarf and I realized Rarity absolutely must be in a hat to match. I was quite pleased with the whole idea, and I really like how they look together. My only regret is that Applejack's scarf is a bit plain and hidden behind her; I just couldn't figure out a better place to put it, I'm afraid. That hat, though... yes, it is far more tricky than I think it deserves to be, and watching some footage of the show only emphasized this fact as it sometimes plain makes no sense. You'll have to forgive me if I'm not jumping at the chance to do more art of them as I'm not sure I want to deal with that hat again so soon :giggle:

Anyhow though, thank you! And I admit I'm not sure how special of an occasion it is to be on the front page in the first place, but if people are congratulating me for it, I will accept my blessing c:

I'm sorry that it's taken me a little while to get back to your comments dear, but there is no need at all to thank me for using your adorable little avatar, I really do love it so much! While I'm not sure how long I will continue to use it before going back to my previous icon, or else something different based on one of my own artworks, I can assure you that have really enjoyed using it thus far, and can't tell you how many compliments I have received on it already!

Both ponies are incredibly cute indeed, and once again I will restate that I think you did a lovely job with them both... with Applejack's scarf and hat included. As for the front page, it's been my experience that it is a very coveted honor indeed, as it has everything to do with the popularity of your piece at a given time (it seems to be linked to how many views/how much traffic a piece is receiving as opposed to just favorites and such, but that may factor into it too). In any case it is a very lovely thing, and as always you are more than welcome for the comment; my pleasure and thank you again for sharing!

Interesting tail on rarity ^^ I like how they both look in this one. Different enough but still clearly them :3

Is "interesting" your way of saying "this sucks"? xD Go ahead and be honest, girl.

I thought people might like the different take c: Originally it was just AJ in a scarf, and then I thought about Rarity in a scarf but that quickly turned into "WAIT I SHOULD GIVE HER THE HAT YESSSSSSS" and then this happened.

No its different but its still clearly looks like her tail :P Looks like she gave herself a cut or something. It's nice to see you mixing and matching them. I see so many people just drawing the same icons over and over again. This gives some mixing up and some extra personality ^^

The only complaint I have is the shading on Raritys ear on the left side looks... Strange XD But it might just be me/my computer screen screwing it up

RenaTurnip Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013
... I meant to fix that ear :< Whoops. I always leave some mistake I didn't intend to ignore somewhere or other. It's not you. I left an error >_>;

Anyhow though, it would be cool if there was more variety in icons for main characters that people would want to use xP Although I make no promises, Vinyl and Octavia are kind of on the list of Ponies I want to get really really creative with. We'll just have to see if I get there or not.

Very nicely done icons, and I can see you're going into a bit more variety with your poses. The moving cutie marks are good as ever. Kudos, Rena~ ^^

Recently the idea of Ponies holding items or objects has come to mind, but of course it'll look weird if a random character is holding a cup or tea or an ice cream cone without some reason or connection to that object. Still though, I've realized that non-pegasi are even harder to pose than those with wings. I've got to start getting really creative :<

Thanks, though :iconapplejackplz:

I think that Applejack's hat is one of the worst things. Ever. It looks nice, yes, but actually drawing it is a pain.

Though Trixie's wizard hat is best pony hat no doubt.

Oh, I forgot to mention: You did a good job on these two. Applejack really gives a bright and seasonal feeling with a scarf. Her hair must one of the hardest things to make on such a small scale, but the middle tone shading without using too many extra colors is quite impressive. It's no wonder you're the go-to pixel artist for pony avatars.

:iconrenaturnip:
RenaTurnip Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013
To be truthful, I'm very happy with how Applejack's hair came out. In theory you'd think it was hard, and applying my standard style of shading completely did not work, but I just sort of adjusted and it worked out all on its own.

Mostly, with a hair colour so bright, the use of the darkest shade all over the outlines was necessary, with the middle shade playing complement to basically every aspect, as opposed to only very specific places like usual. So far I haven't done an icon of anyone else where this happened quite in this way, but I am very happy with it!
