Not as easy as it looks by Rainbro-Stache Not as easy as it looks by Rainbro-Stache
:iconmlpoctaviaplz: :iconsaysplz: "Dear Diary,
Today I learned that Beauty Brass is the kind of pony who would miss her appointment to perform for Miss Cheerilee's class, leaving me to take her place.
Also I learned that Beauty is roughly as strong as an elephant... how the hay does she lift that enormous thing??"

This is what I came up with from the journal entry last week (sorry this took so long.. i dont know why I thought I should ask for suggestions right before finals xD )
If you couldn't tell, I ended up randomly picking Octavia, a Sousaphone, and being in Cheerilee's class :p

So anyway, I tried some different stuff with this picture, Octavia's expression looked so ridiculous to me that I decided to try a more bold and in-your-face coloring style with the solid hair n sharp shadows n whaaatnot.
I also tried to make the background look cartoony and closer to the show's backgrounds... I'm really not too happy with how that turned out tho, which is why I made it kinda transparent :iconfluttershyisshyplz:

Well, I'm at least really pleased with Octavia, I've been practicing my work on facial expressions lately, and I think its sorta paying off... but still a lot of work work work to do

So, what do we have here?

1 point for starring Octavia, best background pony.
1 point for the diary entry explaining what is going on and being funny.
5 points for a picture where Octavia is not calm, collected, or annoyed like she so often is.
No points for the expression the face, because numbers simply do not go that high. Thus, priceless. :-D

All in all, I say this is amazing.

FUUUGEELLHORN! Well, sousaphones are kinda heavy, if made in pure brass. There are some plastic versions though.

Lol love her expression here.

Well, sousaphones just aren't "easy" instruments I guess.
I have to say, Octys expression is just priceless, good job on that.
Also, for some odd reason I can imagine the sousaphone making fart sounds. x3

Hey, at least she was able to get a sound out of it. I'm not sure I could have managed that, and I played trumpet for 7 years :D
Awesome drawing! It didn't turn out as ridiculous as I expected from the journal, but I still find it funny.

Lol I know,  when I pulled the cards I was like... aww this almost makes sense xD
I definitely expected to get a more random mix too, but at least something fun came out of it :3
