Octavia's Practice by Iaomai Octavia's Practice by Iaomai
Octavia's gotta practice if she wants to stay fancy in season 3...
***
I dno lol.
I wanted to try painting some shading with my new graphics tablet... So I did.
Octavia's fanciest pony!

I did all the line work in Adobe Illustrator then exported the vector to photoshop, where I painted the fill and then the shading. It's my first real go at something beyond vectors so I'd like to hear what people think. 'Constructive' criticism is welcomed and I appreciate the effort it takes to write something thoughtful.

Very excellently shaded!

(I will confess, though, Octavia looks naked without her little purple bowtie...)

Epic shading! If there isn't more side pony action to come I'm gonna write someone something angry.

Haha, thanks! Just try not to write it too angry, we don't want scared artists all about the place.

Another amazing piece Iaomai :D
It is nice to see Tavi without her bow on for a change. Awesome work with the shading and lighting

Thanks! :D

I think of Tavi's bow as formal attire and not something she'd wear all the time, so I left it out/(didn't like how it looked in the lineart vector). :P
