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
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
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
