Pencil Portrait - Octavia by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen Pencil Portrait - Octavia by InuHoshi-to-DarkPen
It's been long since I did a pencil drawing with shading and evething. Well, the truth is I only did something like this in art class in the past month.

But I think I will do more in the future. I really like doing digital arts, but I missed doing traditional drawings.^^

Thought skenning them always a pain, as the drawing not look as good as in real life. For this one I tried the clean as much as I can without losing half of the shading.^^'

I really like this picture, wish I could draw like that... (I'm trying to get better, promise!) But I was wondering do you mind if I use this as the cover art for a story I'm writing on Fimfiction? I'll be sure to give you full credit and link the artwork here. I was just hoping I could use something amazing like this until I can get something commissioned.

Oh this is so beautiful! Love how it came out, especially the crosshatching.
You definitely need to do more pencil work, it's gorgeous. <3

well done! I like the way that you draw ponies to make them look fluffy but not overly so.

I love pencil drawings! No disrespect to computerized artists (they have talent, too), but I've always held respect for those who can use a graphite tool to make such beauty! Please do moar!

Nicely done! You drew Octavia beautifully :D

As a cello player myself, though, I have to point out a couple things: One - the fingerboard shouldn't be flat (because if it is, you can't play the middle strings by themselves), and two - you kinda need a bridge (which is the piece that aligns the strings, raises them, and transfers their vibrations to the soundpost). Other than that, you did a great job, and I really like your style :D

Yeah, good idea to differentiate if you have the ability. Particularly since you are skilled in both digital and traditional arts.

I just love her eyes here. And her hair. Indeed, you shaded it all beautifully. The shading on the inside of her ear feels particularly good to me, for some reason. As ever, I like the slightly fuzzy coats you give your ponies, and I also approve of the way you did her stomach here: you made it appear rounded and full in a pleasant way, which gives her a rather feminine curve. Nicely done.

Do you perhaps use charcoal for these? Or what do you use for that kind of shading?
