Steampunk AJ by NastyLady Steampunk AJ by NastyLady
Steampunk Applejack is a mechanic. I just can't see her doing anything else. And that's why I gave her the bag instead of a gun (besides, could she even use it with hooves?).

Steampunk-western mix looks easy to draw... I used to think like that. I didn't realize how hard is to mix those without making the whole thing exaggerated in one or another way.

AJ is incredibly difficult to steampunk, because you can't give her a giant top hat covered in cogs, fancy victorian dress, corset or copper jewelery. She's just too practical for all this stuff.

I just love the artwork for these too. And Applejack does not need a gun. She has her back legs :).

I love this. :) Applejack is my favorite of the mane six. Do you think it'd be possible to have this in a wallpaper format?
NastyLady Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Unfortunately I don't have the editable psd file of this anymore, as I work on a different computer now. So I'm sorry, but it's not possible.
Wild-Mint Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sad day. :( Well,  it's not worth moping over though, there are plenty of your other awesome works that are already in a wallpaper format. :) Maybe someday if you open up commissions I can commission for one like this.

Wild Apple Jack
Apple Jack, desperada, rough rider
No you don't want nada

None of this, six gunnin' this, sistha runnin' this
Filly soldier, look it's like I told ya
Any Pony that's in distress
When she meets Apple Jack, she be out of the mess

Roughneck, so go check the law and abide
Watch your step with flex and get a hole in your side
Swallow your pride, don't let your lip react
You don't wanna see me using my magic to get my guns

With Twilight from the start of this
Runnin' the game, Apple Jack tamin' the plains
So remember the name
Now who ya gonna call?

Not the Avengers!
Now who you gonna call?
T-S and A-J!

If you have a riff with Ponies, wanna bust
Break out, before you get bum rushed by the

(Wild Apple Jack)
You roll punches with the
(Wild Apple Jack)
You stoll in the path of

(Wild Apple Jack)
Bounce to the rythim of
(Wild Apple Jack)

We going straight to Wild Apple Jack
We going straight to Wild Apple Jack

Now, now, now, one upon a time, there was a mess
All of Equestria was harassed
By Discord, givin' up a dime, nothin' less
Now I must put his dragony behind to the test
(Can you feel me?)

Then through the shadows, no saddle, ready for battle
Bring all your toys in, here come the poison
Behind my back, all the riffin' ya did
Front and center, now where your lip at, Disc?

Who dat is?
A mean sistah, bad for your health
Lookin' damn good though, if I could say it myself
Told me Discord is a mad god, but I don't fear that

Got mad weapons too, ain't tryin' to hear that
Tryin' to bring down me, this champion
When that clown gon' see that it can't be done
Understand me, yo, I'm the slickest they is

I'm the quickest as they is, did I say, I'm the slickest?
They is
So if you barking up the wrong tree, we comin'
Don't be startin' nothin'

Me and my partners gonna end this Discord pest
Can't stand the heat? Then get out the way of Wild Apple Jack!

We going straight to her
(When I roll with)
Wild Apple Jack
(When I stroll into her)

We going straight to her
(When I bounce with)
Wild Apple Jack

We going straight to Wild Apple Jack
We going straight to Wild Apple Jack

To any outlaw tryin' to draw, thinkin' you're bad
Any draw on Apple Jack best with a pen and a pad
Don't even think about it, you better run
Or it's 10 paces and turn just for fun, yeah
Up till sundown, rolling around,

See where the bad Ponies are to be found
And make 'em lay down
Equestria defenders,
crushin' on pretenders
Don't mess with us 'cuz we're protected by
(Wild Apple Jack)

We going straight to Wild Apple Jack
We going straight to Wild Apple Jack
We going straight to Wild Apple Jack
We going straight to Wild Apple Jack
We going straight to the Wild Apple Jack
We going straight to Wild apple Jack, come on

(Wild Apple Jack)
When I roll with
(Wild Apple Jack)
When I stroll with her
We going straight to Wild Apple Jack
(Wild Apple Jack)

(Wild Apple Jack)
Whoo, uh
(Wild Apple Jack)
Ha ha ha ha
(Wild Apple Jack)
Uh huh, uh huh

(Wild Apple Jack)
I done done it again, y'all done
Done it again
(Wild Apple Jack)
Ha ha ha ha
(Wild Apple Jack)
All Bronies out there, gimme a "Hell yeah!"

(Wild Apple Jack)
All Bronies out there, gimme a "Hell Yeah!", ha ha ha ha
(Wild Apple Jack)
Wild Apple Jack
(Wild Apple Jack)
(Wild Apple Jack)
One more time

(Wild Apple Jack)
(Wild Apple Jack)
Wild Apple Jack bring in the
Heat, bring in the heat, what?
(Wild Apple Jack)

(Wild Apple Jack)
Uh, can't stop the bum rush
Apple Jack

Obsequiosity Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I like it. Especially the lankiness, which befits a cowgirl.

I can easily see her sauntering up to a complicated piece of malfunctioning equipment, studying the steam as it belches hesitantly from the exhaust, noting the motion of the spinning governors as they swing up and down struggling to keep the throttle constant. After a moment of contemplation, she rears back and kicks the boiler really hard, making a slight dent in the thick plate iron.

Steam starts flowing more evenly, the governors level out, and the apparatus begins working like new. "That'll be 50 bits."

To which the owner would protest, as all she did was kick the machine.

"Yer right. That'll be 10 bits fer kicking the boiler...And 50 bits fer knowin' where to kick."

Can you one of Derpy Hooves? Because Derpy needs some love too. Maybe Discord as well. He'd be insane to Steampunk.

Hey! I'm an amateur Ponyficcer over on, and I'd love an "AJ in Goggles" shot for one of my stories -- what are your feelings about your work being used as "cover" images for FIMFiction and EQD and such?
