Make Some Friends by kefkafloyd Make Some Friends by kefkafloyd
An homage to the classic Uncle Sam "Buy War Bonds" poster by famed American illustrator N.C. Wyeth. Princess Celestia wants YOU to make friends!

This is slightly different from the version first posted because the high-res PSD was corrupted and I had to repaint a lot of it from a backup PSD. If you have the old version (it lacks 2011 next to the signature), please discard it in preference of this one.

I'm only sorry that I don't have wall space closer to my shelf-of-ponies... well, I'll find some space (and MAKE SOME FRIENDS!)-- I suppose it could always face the pony shelf from across the room. Anyway, it's beautiful work, and I am super pleased to own a copy.

Now that you've made this, don't you want to make an Princess Celestia version of an Uncle Sam poster?

It's been done already, I think, but even then I'm more interested in doing other ideas.

Comparing them side by side, I think the second run came out better as well. That background pegasus in the top right did too.

I would not resell posters using intellectual property that I did not create. While the image I am homaging is in the public domain, ponies are not. DeviantArt prints are not available for fanart for this very reason.

Now, if you lived within the greater Boston area, you could pick one up from me for free.

Basically I only ask for lunch or something if I have to drive somewhere. If you really, really want one, send me a note and we can work something out.
