Applejack as Boromir by shadowdark3 Applejack as Boromir by shadowdark3
UPDATE 2: Uploaded a high quality image of the version used in the final picture.

UPDATE: Finished the scene. Find it here: [link]

Part of a much larger picture I've been spending some time on involving, clearly, a mash up of Lord of the Rings and My Little Pony. Here I've cast Applejack as Boromir. I hope to finish the full scene within the next week or two, but it all depends on how much free time I can find to work on it.

That's actually kinda fitting, their personalities are a lot alike, though I happen to like Applejack just a little more the Boromir; and trust me when said I like Boromir's character.

Spike? He has a dark side and can be greedy. Ther's also Garble.

The original gollum was almost reptilian.

You should draw Applejack as Ralph Bakshi's version of Boromir as well :D

...Then again come to think of it, It'd be kinda weird seeing her sporting a viking helmet and a poofy beard o.o

Or maybe kinda cute? ^o^

Applejack is one of my favorite ponies, and for that reason (among others), I had to pick her to play Boromir. Also, the death scene and final words between AJ and Rainbow is going to be awesome.

AJ: It is over; the world of ponies will fall, and all will come to darkness, and my city to ruin."
Rainbow: "I do not know what strength is in my blood, but I swear to you, I will not let the white city fall, nor our people fail."
AJ: "I would have followed you my sister; my captain; my queen."

Would you mind if I use this vector for an icon?
It has nothing to do with LotR, but I think this also fits perfectly for a medieval knight.

I actually really like this suggestion. Then Granny Smith could be Denethor, and AJ wouldn't have to be killed by Uruk-hai. Definitely going to give some serious consideration to Big Mac taking Applejack's place as Boromir.

Not that I didn't like other suggestions I've received; I do, but Applejack dying has been a burden on my mind, and swapping her out with Big Mac would remedy that.

Will Radagast would be ponified? In the book, Radagast the Brown was one of the Five Wizards, who was especially good with animals and woodland creatures and all; it was he who told Gandalf that Saruman was expecting him in Isengard, and also later sent that Eagle to rescue him from the top of the tower.

Hmmm... would Fluttershy make a good Radagast? Just a thought.

:iconshadowdark3:
shadowdark3 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I did consider Radagast, and while Fluttershy certainly seems like a perfect fit, it's such a small part that I wouldn't want to fill it with one of the Mane 6. As for whether or not I ponify Radagast at all, I'm not sure yet. Once I get to that point in the story, if it feels natural to include him, I will for sure, but fair warning: he would probably be played by one of the lesser-known background ponies. Apple Cobbler, or maybe Caramel.

Thanks, glad you like the idea.

I'm also guessing that Nightmare Moon would be the Lord of the Nazgul (being the fallen and corrupted ruler); Discord would be Sauron (they're both trapped, both corrupters, and both capricious tyrants); and Trixie would be Saruman?

Applemir: What in tarnation is this fancy devilry?
Celestalf: Discord. A trickster of the ancient world. This foe is beyond any of you. Run!

Though Twilight is the more obvious choice for Gandalf if you plan to make the Fellowship out of the Mane 6 + a few others. Plus she has the Starswirl the Bearded .. err .. beard. And I guess Celestia would fit better as Galadriel, making Luna Elrond (Elrond with the Royal Canterlot Voice :D )... The again:

Celestalf: Tell me, friend. When did Nightmare Moon abandon reason for madness!? ... Oh, I guess when you became Nightmare Moon. Sorry, silly question.

You're right, there's just too many more or less perfect possibilities to ever be able to stop shuffling things around. Great picture, looking forward seeing your finished product. Being both a brony and a LOTR fan this makes me happy.

Oh now this is an interesting crossover. It would never have crossed my mind to make AJ Boromir. Rainbow Dash seems to fit him better. Applegorn and Borodash, heh! Then again, RD and AJ as Legolas and Gimli would be wonderfully competitive. Gorramit, now I gotta work up a cast list or I'll never be able to sleep. Thanks for the inspiration, and the pic is awesomely well done.

I was actually really surprised at how few results came up when searching for lotr ponies. And yeah, heh, it took me awhile to figure out who I wanted each pony to be. There are so many ways you can set it up; even halfway through drawing out the scene I wonder if I should change one character to a different pony or not. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to see what happens.

With respect and "d'awww"....Aragorn doesn't have an attitude. Gimli is the one that is brash. Though, physically, I could see that. What about Ursa Major as the Balrog? And who would be Sauron?
....WAIT! What about Derpy?! Please don't tell me she's Gollum? Oh no, pick a Diamond Dog...:(

shadowdark3 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Heh, I promise not to make Derpy Gollum. Beyond that though, I really haven't given much thought as to who Derpy might play.

As for Sauron, I haven't given that much thought either. He's only ever talked about in the books, and in the movies he's always encased in armor.

Sauron actually appears in the chapter "The Field of Cormallen", where after the Dark Tower falls, his spirit rises from the ruins and grows into a massive shadow of fear (or something along those lines). He reaches out to grasp at the victorious heroes at the Black Gate, but since he was rendered powerless after the destruction of the One Ring (he was never, and will never be, destroyed - but the Ring's destruction rendered him powerless forever), a great wind came and blew his spirit away. Interestingly, when Saruman was killed in the Shire many months later, Saruman's spirit made a similar appearance and met a similar fate as it rose from his body.

Here's Ted Nasmith's idea of what that scene looked like: [link] (Ted Nasmith is one of the most notable Tolkien artists around, and was even requested to help with the movies - he declined for personal reasons.)
