Dear Princess Cele-wait... no. Dear friends... yeah, there we go,

I threw down this sketch as a possibility for the contest on EQ Daily, but decided I'd make it a fun wallpaper project for after. I thought it would be quick, I thought it'd be easy. I was wrong. I can list off excuses: school started, the lighting messed with me, all that, but the sad fact is I did not get it done in a timely manner. And for this, I am sorry. I shall endeavor to do better.



I have considered doing more, faster, simpler works, but I'm never satisfied with those in the same way. If you want to see it, or like things the way they are, leave a message. I'd be glad to hear back from you.

Not much else to say, I suppose. Here's to you, you wonderful people.

Your faithful artist,
Esuka

I just noticed how the music draws out Octavia's cutie mark.

Dang, how'd you get to be so epic?

I was about to comment about how you derped the staff, but then I realized I miscounted...oops. Anyway, out of personal curiosity, when would anyone put anything below a middle C on the treble staff? There's also the lack of ledger lines, but that's dismissible. Great job on it.

Yep, the December Draw-off. Unfortunately, I only had so many submissions, and the deadline is two weeks past.

This is absolutely gorgeous looking. The shading is wonderful, the instrument is incredibly realistic and beautiful looking and Octavia herself is done wonderfully. I love the smile. The musical notes are also very artistic and flow quite nicely, really giving that 'floating' feeling to them. Amazing work.

It's wonderful to see her actually smiling while she plays, it's not something that I consider her doing unless she is simply playing for the sake of making music, instead of it being her profession. I love that little part of your work here :).

And please please please, don't be sorry for taking your time with your art. I would much rather you do that and not stress over it at all. I have to say that honestly, whenever I see your tag pop-up in my inbox, I get a very big smile on my face because I know that something wonderful is waiting for me there, and if it were to happen a lot more, it wouldn't feel like such a gift.

It's getting late, and words are failing me, but thank you. I'll always stress over my work, but that's to be expected. At least I'm not stressing over a deadline. I guess I never thought of the whole rare treat aspect, but I'm glad I can brighten your day a bit.

The violin... (or is a cello at that size?) looks awesome?

Esuka Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2012
Is cello. I confess, I pulled from the show, from pictures of cellos, and from my own experience with a violin, so there might be a touch of inaccuracy. also, why the question mark?

There's not supposed to be. It must have accidentally carried over from the cello question.
