pixelkitties broNYcon poster by PixelKitties pixelkitties broNYcon poster by PixelKitties
At long last, here's the final version of the massive 2' x 3' poster I made for BroNYcon on September 24, 2011.

:iconpurpletinker: asked me to make a movie-style poster based on Celtic mythology and Scotch/Irish legends and featuring pony versions of Lauren Faust, Jayson Thiessen, and Sethisto from Equestria Daily. The main story she asked me to draw from was that of the Celt hero Cu Chulainn (Jayson) and his mentor/teacher, the lady warrior Scathach (Lauren.)

For Seth, I recommended Saint Patrick since Mr. Sethisto has done so much to bring the pony gospel to the masses.

You've also got Canterlot as Brigadoon, the Green Man as an apple tree, and some other odds and ends.

The poster was a lot of work, and working at this kind of scale was a new experience.

I hope everyone likes it! This certainly was a labor of love...and lots of Red Bull.

Too busy, but I do like Lauren, Jayson, and Seth's outfits.

The second I saw Owlicious I thought his design must've been inspired in SOME WAY by Bubo. Maybe I was just seeing things I wanted to because I love Bubo (Me? Like a clockwork/mechanical bird? What a tweest!) but it makes me absurdly happy to see them together here. XD

I thought the same thing! I have always loved Bubo, ever since I saw Clash of the Titans on TV when I was little. With FIM's connection to Greek mythology, I think that clockwork owl fits right in!

Actually, from what I understood, the entire Mane 6 cast was there. And Celestia. Apparently, the awesome level of Jayson Theissen AND Sthisto being there at the same time was so powerful, it created a dimensional rift into Equestria. *nods*

Is there an official site for BroNYcon or someting? My parents said I might be allowed to go to the next one (I think somebody said it's in december, but I'm positive) if I can get more information on it.

Hi there! From what I understand they are planning to hold an event every 3 or 4 months. I'm not certain, but December sounds like the next most likely date!

Here is the official website for the event!

Also, this is the lady to talk to for all things related to the events. She is quite awesome and works her flank off to put these things together :iconpurpletinker:

I am really going to try and make it to the next one my own self, so I hope to see you there!

LOL I'll have you know, a lady does not "swill" her beer! She enjoys fine ales and craft brews from the appropriate glass with all grace and decorum!

But thank you very much! I am proud to earn that title!

Well I only know general knowledge about some. I don't seem to have the time and resources to study anything outside of my curriculum which is why I don't know too much.

Also it seems like you did have fun in doing this.
