Concept art for the Pony Emblem project.
This is the third promoted lord in the set and Applejack happens to fit the role quite nicely. I kept her cowgirl hat and then went for a fairly utilitarian design for the armour. She has a metal breastplate with a chainmail skirt attached to it. I needed to fit at least one piece of lord-like jewelry here, but as Applejack isn’t into the whole frou-frou thing too much, I had to think a bit. I ended up taking the Elements jewel from her Elements of Harmony necklace and placing it at the neckline of her breastplate. Turned out rather good if you ask me. The boots are more or less her work duds (although it’s hard to tell on the hind legs) with metal toes and front plating on the forelegs and metal toes and full metal heels on the hind legs (all the better to buck your face in with).
