Black Dynamite Dash...

And Other Artwork from mister CUJO Happy Halloween 2014.  The whole episode basically comes down to drawing a Friendship is Magic pony with an afro, my definition of a Brony.  How do you make it even more over the top?  Give the happy trotter a Black Dynamite afro to be more specific.

My original idea was to dress mister CUJO and DARYL in outfits from the animated series M.A.S.K., then I thought about Gatchaman (or Battle of the Planets, or G-Force, or Eagle Force, depending when and where you may have seen the series). Finally it came down to the fact that I just really wanted to draw the characters from a series that really spoke to me as a kid and still does today.  Their designs are so iconic and have influenced so many.  So, that's what I did...
