Octavia by SoulSpade Octavia by SoulSpade
Oh man, her cello looks so horrible >_< I gave it my best, I swear

It's also worth noting that she's just posing with her cello, not really playing it( I placed her bow below the bridge, which wouldn't make sense otherwise)

The notes around her are for effect, so that it's not completely generic. Than again, it still probably is.

Anyway, let me know what you think *hopes for good things*

Everything about this is beautiful ;u; I especially love the shading. It's so soft and warm, just makes you feel pleasant.

I love your style: the delicate washes of color makes everything seem surreal. Of course, your drawing style is absolutely fantastic, too! Wonderful work! :iconfluttershyyayplz::iconsaysplz::iconyplz::iconaplz::iconyplz:

She looks... bored, maybe it's just me but I tend to see Octavia playing with a bit more... I want to say "soul", but I think what I'm trying to say is that she doesn't look absorbed into to the music.

However, she could just as easily be annoyed, only a little bit but still annoyed.

As for the artwork itself, it is simply astounding, the way the light blends with the shading and the way that it doesn't seem completely 2D, wonderful I think. There are however a few points that I notice that could use some improvement. (but then again, what do I know, I'm a crummy artist!)

In any case, keep up the good work friend.

You'll have to forgive me if I didn't do a well enough job at conveying the kind of emotion that she'd likely have, I meant to go for a peaceful expression, but it seems to come off as bored or annoyed ;_;

Anyway, I'm glad to see that despite its shortcomings that you'd still think it looks nice; I appreciate it

It's not a problem really. I mean personally, it's not just nice, it's great! There are just a few problems here and there, but hey, no one can be perfect at what they do right?

I find this work Awesome :D, but I think the bow is pretty small, I don't know how is a cello bow but a violin 4/4 bow is as long as my arm, and I'm tall, but I 'till finding this gorgeous, and I love the background color :).

You say that Tavi's cello looks horrible. I beg to differ, you did a good job making it. The pose for Octavia, the coloring, even the musical notes, you hit all the marks on this. Never doubt how much talent you got. Keep up the good work.
