I told you Pinkie, you can only escape gravity for so long before it catches up to you

I wish I had your drawing talent and I love how you left what's below Pinkie up to our imagination.

I wish I had one, too. My drawings are more like a Lego constructors, not like actual artworks ^__^

And thank you, I like to leave some free space for interpretations, and I'm happy when it actually works (:

Indian Ink?! I thought that was just something they made up for the song "Love Potion Number 9"?!

Looks great, by the way XD

Lol, when I googled it, I firstly misunderstood and saw in lyrics they're singing "it smelled like Indian ink". "Romantic as hell", I thought ^__^

And thank you for compliment (:

Lol! XD It's a really good song! We always play it during Halloween. Though, if you read/hear the lyrics, then you'll figure out that the love potion IS supposed to taste and smell horrible XD

Oh, no problem! It looks awesome! =D Pinkie's expression is adorable =3

I love this! Excellent textures, crosshatching... wow!

Is Pinkie trying to jump to her death? She looks pretty upset/depressed

The fun fact is I actually named WIPs in my scrapbook "Suicide Pinkie" (yeah, I know it's probably spelt wrong). But if serious, she's going to be fine, it's Applejack after all, who holds her tail (: And what about expression, I'm really not good at facial expressions, I wanted to show her really excited, with some pity mixed with joy.

I really like the ambiguous expression. The tearful smile makes me think she is excited to see someone and is a bit overzealous in going to meet them.

Then again maybe she just took some angel dust at her last party and thinks that she's a pegasus.

I think the expression is brilliant for what you're after. Maybe Pinkie just had too much "sugar"? The face is great -- smiling, but with deep sorrow etched in her eyes.

I love this Image. It can be interpreted a few diffenent ways, but I think it is Pinkie offering non-bronies in to Bronydom.

Thank you. And I'm very glad to see it's differently interpretable (:

The different ways I see it interpreted is what I said above, Pinkie litearaly helping you up, or Pinkie reaching out to someone (Maybe a brony or someone who isn't) and going to take them to equestria. What really helps emphise the point is the use of colors. With the sky and the ponies the colored and the wall not it really does give the impression of something better that they are offering to you. And since you have Pinkie jumping over just to get to you and AJ grabing her tail at the nick of time, It all adds up to a very amazing piece.

Wait, am I, the viewer the one who is supposed to take Pinkie's hoof? Actually, more importantly, why I falling to my death?

:iconmcstalins:
McStalins Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Uhmm... I'm not sure I got the part about falling to death, but what about hoof addressee, I was drawing with exactly this thought in mind (that Pinkie is giving her hoof to the viewer).

My only complaint is that applejack is defiantly not biting that hard enough to even hold on to pinkie, try making her bite lower

He-he, I could tell that it's actually why Applejack has that face, but this will be, of course, an excuse ^__^ You're right, I should draw Pinkie's tail a bit differently. I hope to draw once another picture and have a chance to make it correct (:

Yep, she does, and Applejack is always here to allow her not to care about everything else ^__^
