Octavia Evening gown commission by Longinius-II Octavia Evening gown commission by Longinius-II
"Look it's lady Octavia!"
"Oh she always looks so fabulous, doesn't she? Her sense of style is impaccable! But isn't that a new dress?"
"I hear she has a very dedicated fan who treats her to the finest of miss Rarity's creations."
"Oh my... No wonder she's smiling so much lately"
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another sketch commission, this time for :icontiroth: and this one was great!
I think I went a little overboard, since the idea was just to have her in an evening gown. Well, turns out I really love drawing Octavia. Her mane and general design is just the best thing ever.

I hope ya like it. :D

I imagine her using that dress in a future part of my fanfic. Ben and Octavias first date.

'raises hand' I has a question, have you ever done a sketch commission before where once you initially finish it, you feel you would want to fully colour and shade it?
Reply
:iconlonginius-ii:
Longinius-II Featured By Owner May 23, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
How about every single one of these? XD It's a big issue, since I really like them and would love to colour them. but I have so many things to do already! DX

:icongshgunner:
GSHgunner Featured By Owner May 23, 2013
lol yeah, tis a shame that you can't, they would look lovely coloured, but I was also thinking, if the commission was for it to just to be a sketch and you did the sketch, and say you have time, would you go a colour it, even though the original was for it just to be a sketch, gah! it's a little hard for me to say what I am trying to mean in words sorry, but basically if it was just supposed to be a sketch, would you still colour it and show it even the commissioner only wanted it to be a sketch?

:iconlonginius-ii:
Longinius-II Featured By Owner May 23, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ahahah, I do understand what you mean. Don't worry. :D

I wouldn't colour it on my own unless the commissioner paid for it, since it would be unfair to those people who commissioned sketched and wouldn't get their coloured basically for free. SO I will only do it if the customer wants me to.

Absolutely brilliant, as always. Although my usual preference is for more pony butt in pictures I'll make an exception. :iconrarityishappyplz:

'Tavi's design is not too far from Twily's look, at least in terms of eyes. So yeah, I do like her design as well.

I love the sparkles on the fabric of the lower part of the dress and the simple yet elegant front/lower part of the top one, and the back is beautifully decorated with those ornaments. Makes me wonder whether parts of that fabric are partially transparent. And once again, I like that tail base ornament thing (dat cutie mark pattern) and that cloth collar you add to the designs. They both are something of a signature touch of yours, and they both are quite lovely indeed.

Well done! As if there could be any doubt.

Say, are you still open for such commissions, or will you put a stop to them anytime soon?

That's true the silhouette is similar. just with rounded shapes.

I imagined that the fabric of the skirt has sequence in it that's why it sparkles, and the rest is a really soft shimmery satin, coloured something like dark blue or deep purple. Both work great with Octavia.
I looooove those tail-holders. I dunno, those just are so much fun to design. :D Happy to hear that they are kind of unique to me. :D

I wish I could just be quicker and take more commissions on all the time, but I still need to finish other projects. I will announce if I will have the time to do more. :D

Beautiful gown. :) I like how it deviates from the usual style of fancy dress the ponies wear, too (not that there's anything wrong with that style, quite the opposite; it's just refreshing to see something different).

I think this is a picture that's really begging to be colored, too. :)

It's kind of based on the blue dress rarity wore at the end of her song number in "Sweet and Elite" Because that evening gown is my fave from the entire series. XD

I know man... I wish I had more tiiiime. DX

Octavia looks amazing in that dress and that treble clef tail accessory is beautiful. I wonder who she's getting all dressed up for.

You should totally do a collection of pony's in evening gowns. =D

Mmmm, the treble clef is a wonderful shape to use with all sorts of clothes design. :D
And I have my own theories as to who she dresses up for. :P

Ahahah, so another series of images alongside Rarity's Secret. DX

Well maybe not a series, but it was a great concept and it would be cool to see you do it with other ponies sometime like Princess Luna or Rarity
