Book cover - Machoponi by Honeykitten Book cover - Machoponi by Honeykitten
:iconpolitefavstamp1plz::iconpolitefavstamp2plz:

The book is now available as a ebook [link]

So, here is one of the reasons why I haven't been able to draw much gifts to people. I was contacted in the beginning of November by an author, who writes under the pseudonyme Lotus Rose, who asked if I would be interested to draw the cover and black and white illustrations for his upcoming book "Machoponi". As you can see I said yes and this what I've been working on since then, whenever I've had some time to spare. Oh yes, the purple pony is Machoponi, the main character, and by his side we have his love interest, Dust.
I wont put any of the black-and white drawings up here since it'll give away too much of the story, but I wanted to share the book cover with you at least!

He liked the illustrations so I guess I should be happy with them too ;P

Take care everybody! :heart:

Oh! You did the art for this book! I own a copy and really, when I saw it on amazon.com, it was your beautiful art that made me buy it! The story is interesting as well. The cover is just beautifully done! My favorite picture tho, is the one inside of the winged pony sitting on the trampoline. :love:

I wish you good luck to this work, and no worries about the gifties, you have a job and have to do it! ;) :hug::hug: And I am glad you are doing a job related with artwork! :hug::hug:
Aw, and I imagine the kind of story.... very very interesting! Machoponi looks so serious, and his eyes contrasts so much with his dark purple fur ;) Sounds a bit dark storyline, with all the blood and the furry guy on his feet ;) ;) And Dust is such a cutie! I wonder why the broken heart symbol ;)
A very very very cute artwork, I am sure the book will be a success specially due to those drawings, sweety swedish hunny cute! :heart::heart;:hug::glomp::hug::smooch:

Awh, you are really such a dear! Thank you so much :glomp: Yeah, it is a bit fun to actually make some money out of my hobby :giggle: Well, the story is inspired by Tim Burton and his movies so I also suspect that it is rather dark. And Dust's symbol is called the Corruptogram, it's sytmbol the author has invented himself :D
Once again, thank you so much, you are the greatest :glomp:
