A shame that the episode's been out for three weeks and I'm only just now getting this done. Very involved, off-on project. I am not a fast artist.
Some special thanks went into this piece:
First, to , who created these excellent Illustrator Vector Tutorials, which helped me streamline my work.
And to who created the Sweet Apple Acres background.
Everything else was sketched by hand, drawn in Illustrator, and assembled in Photoshop.
EDIT: I wake up this morning and find that the activity on this piece has sky-rocketed. What is this the cause of this good fortune?
Equestria Daily! Woo-hoo! My thanks to the website and all the people who took time to come by and check out this artwork. And thanks to those who found, faved, or commented on this piece before then. Awesome way to start the day!
Karma kicks in!
Also the soapbox appearing and disappearing out of nowhere is a hoot!
Oh, there was some consequences.... JUST off screen.
I bet not only do they have to clean up, but also have to pay as well.
I get that it was supposed to be a funny ending to the episode, yet the more I thought about it the more it seemed selfish. Twilight and Applejack came along because they were promised the chance to try that cake, plus it would probably help drum up business if other ponies tried it. So... I didn't think it was funny.
Wait, you mean Applejack eating the cake? Sorry, but that wound up on the cutting room floor so I don't view that as canon.
