Song Cover Art Mock Up by Karzahnii Song Cover Art Mock Up by Karzahnii
This is a rough 'draft' of an idea I had a while back to create music cover art for every song in MLP:FiM.

I'm still looking at the idea, I just want the covers to have an art style that's both consistent and also suitable for each song. The one right here is just the result of a small bit of experimenting.

Would be happy to see this as an official cover. With the Season 3 Finale... you have a lot of work ahead of you.

An unfortunate fact of life.

On the subject of covers, are you doing this as a hobby, or are you following an art career?

Prooobably not going to continue this.

I started when I had a lot of free time and now I don't.

The above comment was meant in reply to your one. I'm sorry, I'm new to deviant art, and aren't sure how to delete comments.

I don't think you can, unfortunately. deviantART has a pretty bad comment system.

Will have to be more careful in future. Thank you for taking time to chat with me like this.

Have looked over some of your tumblr, and it seems to be good stuff. I notice the most popular posts are those that were referenced on Equestria Daily. The pony ones which weren't don't get as many notes and reblogs. So, I think it's more of a problem with Tumblr and it requiring something to go viral, than it is to do with your art (I don't really like using tumblr, it being an awkward site--I do love tumblrs like yours with good art and comics, however).

Question: will I have to make separate albums for each song in order to see the separate cover arts? I'd rather see the images while scrolling through my music, but they'll be scattered throughout my collection if I give all the songs different names.

As far as I know, iTunes still uses album cover art from each individual MP3 file, even if they share the same album or album artist (meaning if you sort by album and/or artist they should still be bundled together).

I like this. I want to see more. Please? :D

I don't know why, but I NEED cover art as much as possible for any songs I have/listen to/etc. :shrug: If I ever add the actual MLP songs on my iPod/iTunes, I'll use your cover art. :)

Interesting idea. Does "every song" include all of Pinkie's songs (ie, all those little 30 second ones like "Hop, Skip, and a Jump," or "Monthiversary")?

Anything with lyrics, minus ones without melody like the Junior Speedsters one.

Well hey, if you're still interested in the idea in 6, 7 months, do you think you'd want to do some art for Season 3's soundtrack, once I release it? I didn't bother getting art last year [link] because it was such a pain getting 4 artists for Season 1 [link].

Let me know if you'd be interested! :D

I plan on just doing these on my own schedule and letting them be put to any use (including your soundtrack). If it happens to be done by then, you're free to use it. I just don't want to be restricted by any deadline whatsoever, long or short.

Okay, no worries! I understand, that's what most of the artists said in Season 1, the only difference being you saying so BEFORE agreeing. :P

Thanks anyway! Love your art!
