My Little Pirate by andypriceart My Little Pirate by andypriceart
Yo ho Yo ho a pony's life for me!

Since it's been revealed, here is the unedited original art for the cover to MLP: FIM #13 coming this fall. Without the logos, now the ship flag can be seen, as well as the mainsails and logos on Chrysalis' ship in the background.

An idea Katie and I have had since we first landed the MLP book, but alas, we're not the team doing this storyline. However, there was no way I wasn't going to do the cover. Easily the most ornate piece I've done for MLP so far, and a big personal favorite as I really got to play with period clothing and environments. And Celestia and Luna as ship-captains delighted me no end.

This is being printed in glorious B&W in a high quality manner or reproduction for November's "artist Edition" covers!

Art, I believe, is at it's finest when it's not only well-done, but also able to inspire action from its viewer.  This inspires me to let out a hearty pirate's laugh, have some rum, and say things like "Aye" and "Yar!"  Well done sir.

Drink up, me hearties, yo ho.

Time for a sea shanty "Good Morning Fillies All!" (Parody of Good Morning Ladies All)


We are outward bound for Hoofington
With a heave-o, haul!
An' we'll heave the ol' wheel round an' round
Good mornin' fillies all!


An' when we get to Hoofington
With a heave-o, haul!
Oh, 'tis there we'll party 'til the sundown
Good mornin' ladies all!


Them mares down south are happy today
With a heave-o, haul!
With them we'll flirt with colts in our way
Good mornin' fillies all!


We'll swing around, we'll have good fun
With a heave-o, haul!
An' soon we'll be back on the raiding run
Good mornin' fillies all!


An' when we get to Bristle town
With a heave-o, haul!
For the very last time we'll prance around
Good mornin' fillies all!


With Spike and Flutters an' Jackie too
With a heave-o, haul!
We'll drink an' dance with Daring-Do
Good mornin' fillies all!


So a long goodbye to all you mares
With a heave-o, haul!
Don't cry for us, don't waste yer tears
Good mornin' fillies all!

Aw, what the heck, I'm going for it:

Chrysalis: "Why thank you, Twilight."

Twilight: (sarcastically) "Your welcome."

Chrysalis: "Oh, not you. I named the monkey Twilight."

Just love that scene. XD

God dang it, man. I freaking love how you do character expressions! Among so many other things, of course, but those expressions really hit home for me in just the right way. Re-readable comics.
I always buy the issues you and Katie have a hand in, no matter what. These days I seem to buy two (one digital, the other physical for the time I can get myself to the city to pick it up from the shop).
Heather Breckel's colours need to be seen in physical form. They absolutely POP off the page!

Thanks for this. Looks great.

It's a shame you guys aren't gonna do this one, your team's undoubtedly my favorite. You pack so much into your work without cluttering up the piece; instead it's fun to see what you've sneaked into one area or another. I guess what I'm saying is that it's engaging and I dig that.

Nice job on the subtle touch with Celestia's cutie mark for the Wheel there at the Helm, not to mention the combo of Celestia and Luna's CMs for the Pirate Flag/Jolly Roger.  Well Done.
