And here we have my three headcanon levels of augmentation; necessary, where it replaced an injured limb or organ, supportive, where it helps you in your work though you could do without it (Applejack's legs) and vain, where it simply looks good.

It's a good thing that Applejack has friends in high places, or else she would never have been able to afford those augmented legs and spine. Without them she would have grown old before her time due to the hard, physical work she goes through every day. Rarity really is a friend indeed.

Not too sure about how Rarity turned out, but I'm pretty happy about Applejack's legs so who cares >w<

FAQ:
Q: what's up with Rarity's neck?
A: Normally I'd say use your imagination, but I've gotten this question so. Many. Times. A prototype sewing-machine exploded on her and badly damaged her neck and the front of her chest. Necessary augmentation followed.

I never much cared for emulating a different style to get my own ideas across, I just like drawing ponies that look more realistic >w<

I saw your Speedpaint of this piece on youtube, and I must say that you have the patience of a saint to dedicate five hours straight into a project on a single day. I'm lucky to be able to do two hours in one sitting, and my skills are paltry compared to yours. How do you manage to make the time each day, while still maintaining such high quality work and NOT go insane?

Who says I'm not insane?~
Nah, for real, though, thank you so much! Honestly, I just tend to space out when I draw, I get into the pace of things and just... Kind of forget there's a world around me. Of course, it's important to take breaks and I do that sometimes too, and do my recordings in two sittings. Really, whatever pace is best for you to work at, you should do that. Art's funny and individual like that, after all >w<

Well, you can't really get prosthetics if you still have the limbs in need of replacing.

Redtriangle Featured By Owner May 3, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Well, from what I seen in cyborg-flick, people, willingly, get prosthetics even when they have functional parts. Personally, I think they're a bunch of psychos. Really, they use weaponized prosthetics.

I thought if Applejack is one of them. :aww: I can see she's proud of her synthetic legs.

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)
Sistah!

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)
Uh
(Wild Apple Jack)
One more time

(Wild Apple Jack)
Uh
(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
