<Featured on Equestria Daily! Thank you so much!^^>

I tried out the Ink tool in GIMP, how can I make linearts with it. It's really smooth and looks great, but it takes so much time, I don't think I really going to use it that much.^^'

Anyways, someone said I should draw more Octavia, so I did. I really love drawing her.^^

I love this! It's so moody; looks like a still from a film noir.

For some reason this picture says to me 'Octavia is in predator mode' o.o maybe it's that 'look'.

.....never mind.
tabbytigers Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013
Please, Watch your language... Insomnia has officially been stated a -Censored- By you, But... Not being able to sleep is not a object nor noun, therefore... You make no sense.
DEADMANJAY631 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
i said never mind.......i didn't say anything bad in the last reply, only the comment, and beside that i know that insomnia is not a object and how is it censored? i was only saying it because i dislike insomnia. (i still know it is not a object)
tabbytigers Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013
...Think of what you comment...
DEADMANJAY631 Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
.....i did and i now don't care about any of this anymore cause i don't plan to get into a fight with anyone tonight.
tabbytigers Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2013
Okay. Whaaatever. Please, Just don't swear, Okay? I mean... Not that kind of swearing... :D

Hiya Inu! Just wanted to say I love your art style! Also, what's with that little quill in the background? Is that just a quill she was using, or somepony's feather? ;)

This is by far my favorite, I have insomnia as well..
TheComet93 Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013
I *THOUGHT* this was from you!

My god did it take long to find this image again!

This image speaks all kinds of stories, and I can no doubt relate to Octavia in every way. I'm thrilled you were able to capture this feeling spot on.

You are one of the very few people who draw fur on MLP characters. This is one of the best things ever! Why don't more artists do this? Seriously, it makes everything look a lot more alive. Please keep doing this.

I have to ask, what makes you draw the faces with that very distinct shape? It reminds me a lot of Spyro the Dragon, but that's probably coincidence.

The faces combined with the fur and the way you shade things give you a unique style, and I love it. Keep up the great work!

This is stunning.
derplight Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
Freaking love this one, it made me look you up.

The lightning and shadowing are spot-on, plus the drawing style is adorable. I think you're very good at what you do, so keep it up.

I have to agree with A-Z 123 on this one. She has a deep expression of a thinker and creator.
gtasomogyi Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Same here. I play on 4 strings and but don't have inspiration, and sometimes I really can't fall asleep :/ .
Anyway, AMAZING PICTURE O.O Love it ^.^

I hate my insomnia, at least this cheered me up
A-Z123 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
Soooo amazing! You've captured the soul of an artist in this one.
Ponygamer432 Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
more like this! solemn/dark things. yes i do realize there is quite a bit of that from you but very little like this!
TerrorWolfX Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012
Amazing, love it!
DA-KUNGFU-CAT Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
This is honestly the best Octavia picture I have ever seen, and I have seen a HUGE portion of Octavia pics. Being obsessed in her and all. I just love your art style, and how it fits with Octavia. Getting a poster of this for sure. :P

Very nice work !
Xelmon Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2012
What a nice piece, very well dr-... awn.

*Carefully looks at watermark... Then the user details.*

Hogy sikerul az hogy az allamokban az eletben nem talalkozok/talalok magyarokra, es megis a deviantart-on meg valahogy ratok talalok az MLP-n keresztul?! Kicsi a vilag ugy latszik. :)

Ahogy mondtam, nagyon szep lett! Ezt mind GIMP-ben alkotad, vagy volt valami alap is?

She looks like she has a lot on her mind. I wonder what's keeping her up at night.
Farenazar Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012   Digital Artist
Sleepless nights are awful...:( I simply love her expression.

God, I can't get over how beautiful Octavia looks in this picture.
SketchySounds Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I saw this on EqD, and for just a moment wondered if perhaps it'd drawn some inspiration from something I wrote. I swear to Celestia I'm not making this up, there is a scene in a great big long fic I wrote that has Octavia in this exact situation. XD

Self-referential rambling aside, I absolutely love what you've done here. Beautiful work, this is getting a fave :)
