MLP Day at the Beach by andypriceart MLP Day at the Beach by andypriceart
It's FAR from being finished, but I wanted everyone to get a sneak peek at the new deluxe print that will be available at Bronycon later this summer! Once the final piece is ready, I'll post it.

This will also likely end up as a comic cover in the near future as well!

As most of my followers/fans know, I don't often do digital color, but how I approach inking on artwork dictates how color will be done. Traditional comic book inking is India ink with brush or pen, and effect/corrections with white paint. Markers or paint can reactivate the ink and smear it, or have adverse reaction to the white paint, so digital is the simplest approach in this case. Check out some of my copic marker pieces for how I approach inking there.

Pencil, India ink and brush, white paint on 11x17 Bristol Board

You know it's true. She would throw him so far that Luna would have to catch him with the Moon.

XD Of course the most timid pony wouldn't be afraid of the shark. Or dolphin, since sometimes people mistake one for the other.

XD YIKES! Rarity is P.I.S.S.E.D

I really like all the different interactions here. Spike grinning while running for his life from an enraged Rarity; Rainbow Dash freaking or over a shark while Fluttershy is excited to see it. Then there's Twilight and Applejack hammering away at volleyball while the Royal sisters wonder what in threw hey Spike is doing. I can almost imagine Rarity completely running the Princesses over in her hate to capture Spike, and then they'd really be thrown for a loop. : D
