In full-body glory!
I didn't start this sooner for the sole reason that I was expecting someone else or maybe masses of people to vector it at the same time, but a day later there was still no vector.
So, I took it upon myself to do it, but to include the entire body juuuust in case someone else got around to doing his face first.
Like any pony with fetlocked hooves, I abused the clipping tool in Inkscape quite a bit, which, when you also make use of the swatch feature for several colors, runs pretty slowly. After I click to clip, it takes a few seconds for it to actually execute it, which makes the whole task all the more tedious, but totally worth it.
The main shot was another I used several screencaps for since it pans across the shot in focused areas fairly quickly, and the reference image I mainly traced from was made up of six screencaps at (compressed and saturated, since I didn't use the iTunes raw for once) 1080p. Six, compared to two for the last time I did this
. For bits that were still cut off, I got pieces from other screencaps from other episodes for those missing parts and scaled them accordingly. Therefore, I can't promise a 100% scaling confidence!
Maybe one minor edit from the original screencap; I noticed that Big Mac's eye reflections are sometimes symmetrical/mirrored from each other, and sometimes asymmetrical (like they usually are on other ponies), so I made them asymmetrical (if that's the term, as the reflections are usually the only parts not mirrored across both eyes) since that's what's to be expected. Although typically, Big Mac has one eye reflection in each eye, with exceptions to increased emotional levels like this, I guess.
In-context, this face comes from the part where Applejack is considering taking a family roadtrip; the rest of the Apple family makes this kind of face because they're excited to take one.
