Octavia About To Play by VladimirMacHolzraum Octavia About To Play by VladimirMacHolzraum
She's about to show you what real music sounds like.

This is my first attempt at a shaded vector. I used this tutorial to get an idea of how to do it, and I have to say I'm pretty happy with the results, but let me know what you guys think. And of course I had to listen to classical music the entire time while making this. Anything else just wouldn't be right.

The original sketch is by :iconimdrunkontea: and can be found here: imdrunkontea.deviantart.com/ar…

Also, it's only 3000px wide because that's the biggest my computer could do without freezing.


Edit (8-10): Turns out it wasn't really freezing, I just needed to be more patient. PNG is now updated to 6000x7810.

I never really noticed but you did a hell of an amazing job on the cello.

What? A cello that's actually well detailed in a Mlp vector? BLastpamy!

Sorry, it's just as a violinist and aspiring cellist(yes, i stuied thouse partly cause of octavia) i've become a bit nit picky about the tiny details on a cello and, and the mlp set tends to be very inacurate...so yeah when i see ones thats is remotly well detailed im like "What is this scorcory?"

Tldr Nice atention to detail!

Thanks. Although you may notice that the strings here don't actually connect to the tuning pegs.

The hair also doesn't connect to the tip quite right and the bow is also missing the screw.

Yeah, i just hope that they manage to get an acurate cello voctor out ther if they bring octavia back, witch would suck if they didn'.

:iconmlpoctaviaplz: Don't forget the swirl is a tad inacurate and the fine tuners are missing

Well as a brass player, I'm a little more concerned about those trumpets: [link]

I mean, the valves don't even connect to anything.

Soriokink Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
yeah. I"m not even a brass player yet i can tell there's something wrong with those things

Yeah i just looked up a picture and that is a tad inacurate.

:icontwilightsparkleplz: Yeah... a 'tad' as in 'a lot'

Awesome work, but just FYI, no strings player ever holds their bow in their left hand ;)

Uh, she's left hoofed and had a special cello made to be played that way.

I know that guitars can be different depending on handedness, but with violins, violas, cellos, and double bass, they're always played with the left hand on the fingerboard and the right hand holding the bow.
:iconthemoreyouknowplz:

Don't worry about it though. I'm just being a smartass :D

I figured that was the case, but Octavia is just too cool to follow convention.

Ha ha, thanks. I'm actually kind of surprised myself at how well it turned out. I've never done anything like this before.
