MLP 41 cover: Rainbow Dash and the Very Bad Day

By andypriceart
668 Favourites
Final cover art for issue #41 of My Little Pony! The issue is a tribute to Little Golden Books, and is the first time with MLP I've done an entirely hand colored issue- there are no digital effects or coloring, everything is done by traditional mediums. Easily the issue I'm proudest of art-wise. Also some of the hardest work I've put into an issue!

This cover was done with Dr Martin's Watercolor Dyes, Copic Markers, and Colored pencils on illustration board.

Love the little GB border with Winona, Owlowiscious, Philomena, Tiberius, Gummy, Opal, and Angel. The umbrella on Tank is an adorable touch as well and though the way you draw Pegasi wings is often more pointed than the simple, but charming curved lines of the show, in this piece they actually help show aggression and enhance Rainbow Dash's dour mood. Your coloring job is impeccable as always and how you utilized so many different styles and mediums in the making of this comic book makes me just want to stare at the art for hours. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day was a great fit with RD's character, so well done to the writer.
