My Little Searchers by WillisNinety-Six My Little Searchers by WillisNinety-Six
Making another MLP crossover with one of the best movies of all time, The Searchers.

Seriously, if you haven't seen this movie you have to see it (John Wayne's in it for pete's sake!!)

Anyways, Apple Bloom get's kidnapped by some of the buffalo in AAAAPLEOOSA, and it's up to Applejack and Big Macintosh to find her and bring her back home.

I never drew a background like this before, but I think it looks AWESOME!!

MLP:FiM belongs to Hasbro and was created by Lauren Faust :iconfyre-flye: "The Searchers" belongs to Warner Bros. and was directed by John Ford

John Wayne! Gotta admit, this is the first time I've seen any reference or mention of that guy on this site. And wouldn't you know it, it's a pony crossover. Have a cookie. If you are having trouble getting it, make sure your browser is set to collect them.

This is amazingly done. I wish I could be as good as you. Perhaps as time goes on and I continue to practice, I'll come close... but in the meantime, I can only tell you that you did a very good job on this image.

John Wayne at his best, even if it was a tad bit controversial.
And an Apple Family picture as well. Amazing.

The Searchers? Title sounds interesting. A western, I assume?

It is. One of John Wayne's best.

I was worried I'd just written out a big long head canon about the Apple family, and this appears on the Drawfriend that was posted before I got my thing written, and I PANIC, thinking someone's beaten me by just that much. But this is cool. It would be an interesting plot for an episode.

My favorite pony combined with one of my favorite movies. Thank you.

Excellent movie. Probably John Wayne's best performance. I'd never thought to cross MLP FiM with it. But it works. Wonderful job!

"True Grit" is much better in my opinion, but this is still an amazing movie.
Erix19 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2012  Hobbyist Writer

Looks nice. The atmosphere is very poignant and subdued, the mostly empty expanse and horizon working well to draw specific attention to the action taking place on the bottom corner as well as the center. On the topic of the center, the cut off between the setting sun and gloom of the sky was nicely textured to play off of each other, not to mention how it plays also off of the shadow of Applejack's hat, as if she's a part of the horizon.

The only quibble I would have with this would be with Big Macintosh. His hat looks off, set too far forward and not quite balanced atop his head. His back leg as well looks a little odd, though I can't quite place just what it is.

Overall, pretty good. A few things are off but overall it works well for itself.
