I've just looked at a number of the ones you've done so far, and I must say you capture the heart of the episodes quite well, making the images compelling, eliciting interest in what the story is about.

Good idea, it will be interesting to see what different elements you can include for each episode card. And I'll be sure to spam you with faves :P Great piece :iconscootaloolaplz:

This is wonderful. The old 50's/60's B-Movie style is just perfect.

Their expressions are golden, and perfectly capture the feel of those old posters/images.

Oh my god, title cards would make this show absolutely perfect. I loved seeing title cards in cartoons back then, they captured the theme and soul of the episodes they introduced. Combined with ponies and that art style, this artwork is simply nostalgia heaven. This makes me frustrated beyond grief that title cards are just a thing of the cartoon past now.

The only thing that seems off is the font of "Developed for television by Lauren Faust". It is too Microsoft Word and sticks out like a sore thumb in a title card. Other than that, this is excellent.

Hope you're game on all the work you just set yourself up for...there's already more than fifty episodes...and counting!
Best of luck, and keep up the good work.

I love this title card. In my opinion, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic actually should have had title cards like these. Most of the cartoons I watch don't have title cards like this anymore. It just show the title of the episode while it already started. The cartoon Adventure Time has cool title cards though. They all look a bit old and are often really strange.

I really like the scary mood of this picture. However, the shadow of the Cockatrice could have been a bit more scary. Also I find it kind of strange that the title card mentions that the show is developed by Lauren Faust. Wasn't that already stated at the end of the into theme? Usually, title cards tell the viewer which people have worked on that specific episode. I also saw your title card of "Green isn't your colour", but that title card tells the writer of the episode. I think that more useful information to put on the title card.

thank you ever so much for your comments the cockatrice is actually supposed to be one of the runaway chickens. I did originally have the shadow of Fluttershy next to it . But I liked the idea of the title spelling it out for you. And i did realize after that Faust is mentioned at the start of the opening of the episode.

What I am doing is keeping all the Photoshop files of these pieces so i can easy alter the text to say the name of the writers instead I just used faust as an example for where the text would go on the card


hope that helps :peace:

I thought that chicken was a cockatrice, because of the crusaders' scared faces. They wern't afraid of normal chickens in the episode itself. They weren't even afraid of cockatrice at first, because they thought it was a chicken. Anyway, I think leaving Fluttershy's shadow out was the right choice. Sometimes, less is more. I think if Fluttershy's shadow still was there too, the picture would have a less scary vibe to it.

I already had a feeling you used Faust's name as an example, but I wasn't really sure, so that's why I mentioned it anyway. I do have a question, but it is a little hard for me to explain (English isn't my first language), so I hope my explanation isn't too complicated. There are a lot of people who work on one episode. All their names should be shown at the beginning of the episode. Do you have an idea where all those other names would appear? Some cartoons first show a title card and after that, it will show the people who worked on it on new frames with more basic backgrounds. However, other cartoons just show all the names on the title card. Instead of switching to a new frame with other names on it, it will just replace the names that are currently showing on screen with other names. Which form did you have in mind for your title cards?

I'm curious about the other title cards you will make. Title cars are always fun to look at. They are often over-the-top, but they can give an impression of an episode before it even started. I wish you best of luck with creating all these title cards, because there are a lot of cards to make. I'm looking forward to see you next one.
