Vinyl Scratch San Diego Exclusive Cover art by andypriceart Vinyl Scratch San Diego Exclusive Cover art by andypriceart
Copic markers, India inks, Faber Castell PITT pens, white paint on Illustration board, 13x19. This is how the cover looks without the logos (showing three disco dancing pegasi hiding under that giant logo). For the observant, you'll find the pony equivalents to The Monkees, The Rolling Stones, and The Beach Boys.

This is the cover for an exclusive variation of issue 9 of the MLP comic series. The cover is limited to 1000 copies for sale at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con. This exclusive variant also has another show only goody- an 8 page backup story of the origin's of Sunset Shimmer and her time as Celestia's student!

The ponies in the background make Vinyl Scratch stand out even more.

The Beach Colts, huh? I hear half of their songs are about Canterfoal-i-a! It must be a mad party with that selection of music. 'definitely preferable over some undanceable dubstep mixes. :D

Man, I feel kinda bad and also kinda envious of Big Mac. :3 Sweetcream is cute, but it's obvious she's scaring the bejeezus out of him with her forward nature. And Pinkie and Lyra are just having fun being blissfully unaware while Sweetcream hits on Big Mac and DJ/Vinyl spins the records.

Amazing cover, as usual! Too bad the pegasi have to be covered up by the logo. I would have loved to get this variant (especially with that 8-page extra). If only I didn't live on the other side of the country (NY, to be precise).

One thing that always stands out to me in your covers (aside from the amazing amount of detail you put in your illustrations) are the extremely vibrant and painterly, yet natural colors that you use. The reflection on Vinyl Scratch from the disco lights is a particularly nice tough.

Also, I hope you don't mind me asking, but considering the amount of detail you put in your colors and inks, I was just wondering you use Copic originals, sketch, or both? It seems like you would have to get very precise with your coloring (the books and posters, for example), and the original Copic's fine nib seems to be ideal for that job.

Both you and Heather are amazing artists/colorists, and I can't wait to pick up issue #9! Keep up the awesome work, and happy 4th of July!

I use the Copic Sketch markers, for some very fine lines I will use paint or .005 Prismacolor markers
