My Little Pony issue 1 Cover A and B by andypriceart My Little Pony issue 1 Cover A and B by andypriceart
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.

I think Applejack is missing an arm.

No that arm is just holding the hat

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

I love how you use copic markers in your pieces! Absolutely stunning! ^^
Skawaii Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Do you plan on posting the 3 covers all together? or is it too large?
HorseCookies Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
OHMYGOODNESS. :iconcryforeverplz:

Such beautiful composition and vivid colors! Some of the best traditionally made pony art I've seen!
Kapow2003 Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013
Really nice, stuff, Andy. What Copics do you use for Twilight Sparkle?
andypriceart Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
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)
Kapow2003 Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013
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!
andypriceart Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
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 :(
DestinyDecade Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Dang. Well done. I really like that you use Recycled paper. Best thing about it, helps the environment.

ak399 Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012  Student Filmographer
Stop making so many covers! How am I supposed to buy 19 copies of the same comic just to collect the alternate covers?
andypriceart Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
I didn't make 19 covers, for that you'll need to tell the publishers. I made 6 as stated here
ak399 Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2012  Student Filmographer
It was part imperative plural and part poking fun at the excess of covers. Sorry if I came off as accusatory.
RogueFox89 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I can't wait for this! I have my FLGS/CS ordering me the boxed set of all six standard varient covers plus the other variants that they'll get as well!

When I spotted Celestia in the back, my first thought was; "She looks hot"
Then I was confused because I can't say I find her physically attractive.
And then I realised I meant it literally.
And now I'm starting to worry about myself.

Also this art looks fantastic! It makes me want to go back to using copics again.
QueenDanny Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012
You Rock.!! thanks for making these comics i will collect them as every issue comes out. 'I'm gonna watch you for new updates keep up the good work
MigBird Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Do you think they'll print enough for everyone to buy six #1's?

2 out of 6 covers for an official pony comic book.
Dear IDW, don't stop being awesome. Tell that to your brilliant artists too!
NurioMarayana Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Do you know what this "subscription variant" of the comic is? (Found here: [link])
It seems to be yet another alternate cover, but I am slightly confused at it being for "subscribers only"... Does that mean I can't get it?
Are there any more covers beside the Mane 6 and this subscriber one?
RainbowCash Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Is it okay if I use this for a song? I will credit you!
andypriceart Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
This is legally the property of IDW publishing and Hasbro Inc so you would have to ask them. I appreciate you asking!

I'm not a fan of the series but I have to say that this an amazing pic.
