Contest Entry - Heading Home by DolphinMoana Contest Entry - Heading Home by DolphinMoana
EDIT: EEEEE, I made it into my first Equestria Daily feature in Drawfriend Stuff #850!! www.equestriadaily.com/2013/06… Whoever sent this in to them for nomination, thank you so much!! Please make yourself known so I can thank you personally! :)

My contest entry for the Family Fun Contest being held by :iconponies-for-everypony: (By the way, I hope the pony silhouette is good enough and can be seen okay. If anyone's confused, it's on Applebloom's baby bag.)

I've had the idea for this pic in my idea roster for a while, so this contest was the perfect opportunity, especially considering the expansion I've made on the Apple Family lately. And as for Granny Smith, I'm sure she's waiting at the house, probably perfecting a big pot of hot apple cider from the first harvest of the season for everyone. :)

..........*goes to get myself a cup of instant apple cider*.........No, I seriously am. :lol:

Background, apple buckets, and hat vectors by *ZuTheSkunk Thanks for all the great resources!! :D

*Sniff* I wish this was a reality, I feel so bad for the Apple siblings sometimes, but then I remember they are doing just fine. I assume this is before whatever happened to AJ's folks? If so that makes it all the more heart-breaking xD

 

The lighting, poses and expressions are all top notch! I voted for this and was suprised it didn't place, but I was happy to see it on EQD via Drawfriend. Excellent job my friend :)

Yep, the whole family was together for almost a year once Applebloom was born. She's actually probably about the same age as Pumpkin and Pound Cake in Baby Cakes here. :aww: She was born just in time for the harvest. Bramley died the following summer. :(

Unfortunately, I think we had a cheater in the contest who whizzed into the top three at the last moment and pushed me back. :( No big deal anymore, though, seeing it on EQD was a red-letter day for me. :D Thanks!

I hope Apple Bloom has some memories of her parents, even if it's just a faded memory it's better than none at all. What happened to Bramley and Floret in your version?

Really hard to say on Apple Bloom's part. :( Maybe she does, though. :aww:

There was a drought the following summer after this picture, and Bramley overworked himself to heat stroke trying to do the work that needed to be done to keep his family provided for. :( It turned out to be fatal. I haven't set in stone yet what happened to Floret afterwards.

I would hope she does ^^

Aw, poor guy. What an awful way to go, but he was doing what needed to be done. I'm guessing Granny Smith scolded him saying things like, "you don't need to go out there" or "we can make do until autumn with the preserves".

Yeah. :( But they depend on Cider Season earnings to help them through the winter. And without a cared-for crop to see through summer into harvesting time, then there's nothing to make cider with. And I figure with a new baby in the family, Bramley figured they needed more than preserves to get through winter. That, and it can be really hard to restart a a whole crop when it dies out.
