BronyCon Summer is FAST approaching, and those of us in the artist alley have been asked if we would like to help design the various signs to be hung around the convention for various rooms, events, and locations.
I'm submitting three sign designs, keeping my fingers crossed that they'll be chosen so that I can actually finish them. It's also a great chance to be able to add this to my resume. ^_^
And you know me, I like giving some of the not-often-used ponies some air time, so you will NOT be seeing any of the Mane 6 MLP: FiM gals from me here.
( I've been informed that there has a been a change in plans for the signs, so I'm going to just use these for my own print ideas. HOWEVER, I'm still going to be working on a sign for the convention. You'll have to wait and see what it is and what it looks like once the convention comes around. ;p )
Now my question for you all:
If these are designs are chosen to be used for the official BronyCon Summer signs, how do YOU all think I should color them?
Animation flats ( like I've been doing on my MLP:FiM, "Boys Only!", line ), or digital painting?
The actual lettering for the signs will be done in Adobe Illustrator, in their own layers, so it's a given those will be flat tones, but the actual ponies themselves, I want YOUR feedback.
Now, on to the designs!
The Concession Stands:
I went with the idea of Sugarcube Corner, featuring Mr. and Mrs. Cake.
The Tail Hall:
Now THIS one I had a difficult time coming up with ANY FiM pony that I could use ( and still have a rating of PG. XP ).
HOWEVER... we DO have several ponies from the original G1 line that I could use the whole idea of long tails with. And who better to use than Princess Brush'n'Grow, Star Gleamer, in my own take on Princess Luna's body type?
Hey, it's an excuse for me to draw super long and flowy hair!
And finally, the Exit signs!
Immediately, the construction worker ponies from the, "Mare Do Well", episode came to mind. I dug around on the MLP:FiM wiki, and found the female construction worker, Ambrosia.
