Well, now that the image is all around the interwebs, here's the uncut/unedited art for the cover to Issue 1 of MLP:FIM. These are the first 2 (cover A and Cover B) of what will be 6 diferent covers for issue 1. As you can see here, they will all come together to form one interlocking scene!
As the other covers are released, I will debut the uncut art here first!
Copic Markers, Pitt pens, india ink & brush on Recycled Strathmore 80lb paper. 18x24.

No that arm is just holding the hat

At first glance, I thought Celestia was a Nuke set off in Ponyville

Do you plan on posting the 3 covers all together? or is it too large?

OHMYGOODNESS. :iconcryforeverplz:

Such beautiful composition and vivid colors! Some of the best traditionally made pony art I've seen!

Really nice, stuff, Andy. What Copics do you use for Twilight Sparkle?

Prime body color is v01, hair is usually Prismacolor Brittany Blue or copic b94, stripes are v04 and rv06- these are same colors for eyes and cutie mark (rv06 is also Pinkie's hair- the girls share a lot of the same colors)

Thanks, Andy. My Twilight Sparkle color scheme has been all over the place. Couldn't ever get it right. Much appreciated and really nice work, sir!

Very welcome

As soon as I get a few minutes, I'll be posting a color chart that I use for the cast, as I've had a LOT of requests

When I first got it, ONLY the subscription variant was left in the store, so I didn't get one of these :(

Dang. Well done. I really like that you use Recycled paper. Best thing about it, helps the environment.

Stop making so many covers! How am I supposed to buy 19 copies of the same comic just to collect the alternate covers?

I didn't make 19 covers, for that you'll need to tell the publishers. I made 6 as stated here

It was part imperative plural and part poking fun at the excess of covers. Sorry if I came off as accusatory.
