The IDW MLP #11 and 12 comics are so far my top favorite arc. Being a kid in the 80's I remember some of that stuff. I decided to draw something "80's" that wasn't touched on in the comic: Hanging out at the mall. In this case we've got Cadance and several others from the comic.
After 3 weeks of nights, I finally finished the digital version of my drawing. Made several changes to it including changing a few background characters.
The store signs are graphics I made, then pasted onto the drawing (Goodmare, Units, and the arcade are fonts I have on my computer. The rest I worked from photos of the real ones).

Some of the details in the Hay Bee toy store are images I worked in, the rest are "cartoon" versions of actual boxes. Likewise with the album covers (Van Haylen, and Quarterhorse, which I previously uploaded: lonewolf3878.deviantart.com/ar… ).

The floor was a complete B**** to make. I made it as a seperate layer, then pasted the rest of the drawing on top of it. I made a flat "grid", then used Gimp to (try and) change the perspective of it. And don't get me started on the damn ceiling tiles.

80's Moondancer and Cadance are from the cover for comic #11 drawn by Andy Price.

Have some 80's songs to listen to while looking at it:

This is rather nicely done. Seeing a younger but mature Cadence and Moondancer from the 80s incarnation of the show is pretty cool. I can imagine the mall having a calm soundtrack to it while hearing a lot of ponies talking in a low voice so they can hear each other.
