The Amazing Gypsy Bard

Another MLP related fan art for a friend.

I was grooving this fan made music I found while Googling some old Carny-Circus advertisement posters. Looking for ideas and references for future projects. Ended up using those ideas and references for this piece. Adding age and patina a to stuff is a lot of fun.

A darker side of the Gypsy Bard here: fav.me/d5ax35b

When you're rife with devastation
There's a simple explanation:
You're a toymaker's creation
Trapped inside a crystal ball

And whichever way he tilts it
Know that we must be resilient
We won't let them break our spirits
As we sing this silly song

When I was a little filly, a galloping blaze overtook my city
So they shipped me off to the orphanage. Said, "ditch those roots if you wanna fit in"
So I dug one thousand holes and cut a rug with orphan foals
Memories are blurred, and their faces are obscured, but I still, know the words to this song

When you've bungled all your bangles
And your loved ones have been mangled
Listen to the jingle jangle
Of my gypsy tambourine

'Cause these chords are hypnotizing
And the whole world's harmonizing
So please children stop your crying
And just sing along with me~

I think I'll save this gipsy pinkie pie in a fave directory alongside Yakuza Rarity and call it "Manaecs"

I fell in love with the song when I first heard it, I'll admit, and this poster definitely does it justice in my opinion! Especially the hair. Very attention grabbing. Fantastic work!
