The cover for IDW's MLP Micro Series issue 3. Katie and I did our only contribution (so far, anyway) to the offshoot of the regular book.
This cover was a lot of fun to do, although it was a compromise for me: I wanted to paint this on Black Velvet, but I ran way too short on time. But it works, as velvet was more a 70's thing, not 60's... and I wanted it to feel like one of the old Fillmore posters. The original is even black light reactive :)
Copic markers, PITT pens, india ink and white paint on bristol, 11x17.

This would make either a fun poster or on a T-shirt.

This is absolutely my favorite thing in your whole gallery, the details (the fabric stretches, and the head band actually being distorted against her horn!), the colors, the obvious effort put into making sure this really felt like a poster straight out of the 60s, it's just an awesome piece of work.  :+fav:

This was probably one of my favorite stories in all of the series, along with Nightmare Rarity.  I especially loved some of the puns in the backgrounds of some of the panels, albeit dealing with both the 60s and 70s.  I think one of my favorites would have to be the poster for "Celestia Superstar", a send-up of "Jesus Christ Superstar", which came out in the 1970s.

What would have been even cooler is if you'd been able to have it print in ink that would be reactive to UV light (black light).  Would have really helped set the mood.

This is by far my favorite of all the MLP variant covers, I don't even know why. Rarity just looks really good in a 60s look!

One of my favorite MLP covers, it's truly beautiful and fits well with the issue.

Fantastic cover to a fantastic story, loved everything about this issue, and I'm so glad this particular cover wasn't made into a variant thus making it easier to find. :D
