My Little Pony 61 cover by andypriceart My Little Pony 61 cover by andypriceart
A showcase of some of the species, new and old, show up in issue 61 so I wanted to highlight that for the cover. It's a summit meeting type of story, but I gave it a more convention hall type of feel. 

My cat Gomez is the model for the king of Abyssinia! 

Inked with india ink and brush, Faber Castell PITT pens on vellum Bristol stock, colored digitally in photoshop

Yay, Ember.
Why didn't the seapony queen what'sherface just turn herself into a hippogriff for easy travel over land?

It'll be like the United Nations, but with more cosplay!

...which, in all honesty, would make the U.N. a lot more interesting anyway. ;) (Wink)

I love seeing the different size and body shape for the different race. That's really fun to see and gives me a lot of idea for different interactions between them ^^.

I love your design for the King of Abyssinia!  I have two black cats and a tortie, and I could easily see them in that world.

This is just so cool to see the leaders from the various species we've seen around the show and comics all together.

All I can picture is you sitting in front of your kitty who's laying down wondering why you're looking at him and what you're doing (the drawing).

I notice the king of Abyssinia is the only one who brought a suitable swag bag.  Savvy convention-goer he must be...  ;)

I was wondering if this was the characters at a convention, but then I realized they didn't look shocked enough.

It will be good to see Queen Novo in the comic.

I think it would make more sense for Novo to appear in her true form. But I guess it is done so that there are not three big white quadruped standing next to eachother or something like that.

Question: How long did it take you to ink this? Also, how long do you think it would have taken you to ink this when you first started out in comics?

inking this one was probably about 4-5 hours, I'll guess. Inking always goes faster than drawing for me. It's likely faster than I used to be, but I couldn't begin to estimate what the difference is after 30 years of doing inking.

Can't wait to learn the Abyssinian's name and it's always nice to see King Aspen again

I wonder how he handled the Plunder Vines and various other Everfree-related problems...
