Sorry for all the suck!
I don't pay attention to a lot of the action with background ponies as much as I'd like, lack of time and all. But I have to say I've grown fond of Octavia/Scratch over the ages, probably because Fanon depicts them as wide opposites of each-other.
This was actually a suggestion by
(get an avatar already) to help me come up with more ideas for FiM artwork. Though ... "DRAW TAVI AND SCRATCH" doesn't really play on specifics, I guess pointers are better than staring at the canvas with a massive poker face.
in any case, I hope it's at least passable. I did pick up a few hints and improved on certain techniques as far as shading and lighting go, but perhaps a bit too late to save this poor soul.
Also, 1080pony for those who want it. Me? I prefer my books. And my spells.
Edit: 500 faves! Aww yeah. You guys are awesome.
