My Little Pony Soundtrack Album Art Cover Concept by OliveBranchMLP My Little Pony Soundtrack Album Art Cover Concept by OliveBranchMLP
I never really liked the soundtrack album art covers that have been floating around on the internet; they looked too "fan-like". Either they were really cheap-looking (as if they had been thrown together in Paint), or they looked really intricate at the cost of looking unprofessional and impractical. I wanted something that looked nice, simple, clean, and realistic; something that a record label might actually design if Hasbro were to release an official soundtrack for an MLP movie.

I put this together in about half an hour. Like most official soundtrack album artwork, it's simple and practical in its expression, doesn't overload the user with too much information, and takes basic graphic design principles into consideration (such as negative space, a really simple concept that seems to be relatively ignored in the brony community). It also credits ALL of the composers, not just one. (For some reason, everyone has a really bad habit of only crediting Daniel Ingram...)

The font used for the bottom is Woodrow, and is the same font used during the opening title sequences for the show. Hopefully if more people know that, they'll stop hideously over-misusing Celestia Redux and Generation B so much.

The art is a modified version of Gameloft's promotional art for the MLP mobile game.

Edit: Fixed Kristofer Gee's name. Oopsie.

Sorry for there being less material on sides three and four.  The standard CD version would have sides 1-2 on disc one and sides 3-4 on disc two.  The deluxe CD version would probably have sides 1-3 on disc one and side 4 and a lot of bonus material on disc two.

What do you think about this list of songs?

It's a good list, but if a proper soundtrack existed, it'd most likely also include all the BGMs, which as of yet do not have titles. :)

It's Kristopher Gee. Not Kristofer.

Nonetheless, I love this! Nice job on it. I think I know you from somewhere else too...

If you feel like updating this at all (not that I expect you should), Kelly Davidson has been co-composing the show's score since season 3. Kristopher Gee co-composed on seasons 1 and 2.

As a suggestion, however, I actually WOULD use Celestia Redux as the secondary font since it hints to the series along with Woodrow, although I can see why you used the other one... Anyway, would it be too much to ask for a smaller version, maybe 200x200px? I would remake it myself but I can't seem to find Woodrow and I have no idea what that other font you use is called. I wanted to use this as an icon for my unofficial soundtrack.

Celestia Redux, from a graphical design standpoint, is a trainwreck. The kerning and leading are horrid, and some of the proportions are way off. It looks extremely unprofessional. 

Most of these problems are non-existent in Generation B, which I would use if I had enough experience in typography to implement it in a way that would make it look good.

Oh my gosh, you sir have AMAZING taste!

I always think the same thing whenever someone just can't make a professional cover like this, reading that description was like an orgasm.
