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!
