Lost in Manehattan: Another Victim of Ignorance by SmellsLikeBeer Lost in Manehattan: Another Victim of Ignorance by SmellsLikeBeer
"Ignorance is your new best friend"

So, this is the fourth piece of the series "Lost in Manehattan" - Applejack as a filly looking for a different life in Manehattan, the corrupted, horrible city covered in fancy outlook. Well, that's how I want to imagine it. The other pieces you find here:
1st [link] 2nd (warning for mature content) [link] 3rd [link] 5th: [link]

Probably one of the fastest works in awhile. And I like working fast, so it's a good thing.
The pencil sketch was a pain in the ass to erase, I made the mistake of using 4B pen. It's too soft, for me at least, and it's almost impossible to get rid of if you push it too hard. But I forgive myself since I'm sick again. You know, it's really hard to focus on what I'm doing in the moment.

Anyway, ink and watercolor on A5. As always.

speaking like a true fanatic I love that applejack perspective, and well a proper way to desribe what this picture tells me is: Pain lasts, kid. It's how you know you're alive. No applejack that place is not place for a hero. love the picture man.
BTW keep safe man wish you had a happy new year and lets make the change with timewho know maybe our path can cross but till then, keep yourself healthy and drawing these amazings pictures.
The pony on the top kinda looks like babs seed.
That pony looks like the guy that sold the world.

Glad to see that one colt is doing okay. I thought those unicorns killed him.

Very nice perspective here. I especially like how there are a lot of ponies nearby, but none seem interested in helping. Very fitting with the rest of the series.

Babs wouldn't have been alive when AJ was a filly with no cutie mark. o3o

I know, but it kind of looks like her. And the title kind of relates to her story, a bit.

Ignorance is better than attention when trying to avoid madness and chaos due to differences and misunderstandings

Reminds me of this incident during the industrial revolution where a company owner locked his workers inside a building so they wouldn't go on break. A fire started, forcing almost all the workers to jump to their deaths or be burned alive.
