Octavia on a stroll by SmockHobbes Octavia on a stroll by SmockHobbes
Sooooo, new style this time!
Octavia is adorable, and she kinda reminds me of Mio from K-on!

(Art style inspired by [link] from :iconholivi: Great drawing, Holivi!)

I really like it. Very pretty.
With the hair and long legs and style, she reminds me of an old friend of mine.

Also also, was the similarity to Gregorian chant notation intentional?

No, I didn't think one moment about what it should look like. I just drew a few lines to create something similar to a stave, and went with that ^^

Out of curiosity, exactly what program are you using?

I'm really interested in brush emulation, but that's something GIMP doesn't do (afaik)

This drawing was done in PaintTool SAI. Just a really lightweight drawing program that offers almost everything you need.

I fooled around with different brushes and settings until I got a brush I liked, and then drew with that!

Unbeknownst to anypony she's actually listening to music from her roommate Vinyl Scratch.

i see only one problem with this...
you gave her an ampersand for a cutie mark instead of a treble clef.

here's the difference
ampersand [link]
treble clef [link]

And here's her actual cutiemark: [link]

I didn't add the entire curl to the drawing, because I didn't want it to be too detailed, but Octavia's cutiemark definitely isn't the same as a treble clef.

direct from the source:
"Octavia's character design is reused with a different color scheme in Luna Eclipsed. Her coat is yellow, her mane and tail are dark blue, and her eyes are light blue. She has the same treble clef cutie mark as Octavia, except that hers is light blue instead of pink. "

'The source' is a wikia, a fan-written site. Of course they would call her cutie mark a treble clef, because it resembles one. It still does NOT look exactly like one, and is rather an undefined variation of it.

I have drawn that variation. It is not a treble clef, it is not an ampersand, it is Octavia's cutie mark.

Aww, you broke the pattern! Still, it's a great work of art. I like the watercolor style, although I like your other style better, but that's just my opinion.

Ye I do too, but it's fun to try different things once in a while ^^
Also, if I wouldn't be distracted too much, I could do this one in about 2-3 hours, when I need about 8 for the other style.
