Caught You by TwilightFlopple Caught You by TwilightFlopple
Here's something different. Ms. Scratch doesn't really interest me much because most of her art involves the single thing she does for the five seconds she appears in the show - standing there and looking cool. Cool isn't something I can really relate to, and I need to relate to my art to be able to draw. So my gallery is relatively DJ-free.

But I've liked some of the art I've seen lately of Ms. DJ with her goggles off, and liked even more some recent efforts to make the character cute. I decided it'd be interesting to draw her looking embarrassed and cute. Because you can't be cool without confidence. So here she is, goggles free, with fanon-approved red eyes. It was fun to draw a side of her that hasn't been explored much in fan labour...

Octavia came along for the ride, looking silly. So the cool filly loses some confidence and the serious filly gets silly. You can think of this as a shipping image if you like. But whatever it is it's mostly a cute moment between friends.

And oh yeah, the positioning of Scratch's legs here is my favourite bit. It's quite difficult to get poni legs into natural positions once they're no longer on fours; I think she looks quite comfy. It was also great fun to design LP sleeves for Octavia.

Mixed media and watercolour paper.

Even though it's the wrong color, it's very nice. I thought for a second it was the original color for her :P.

What do you mean Cool isn't something I can really relate to? :( I think you're cool, Foxxy! :D

I'm not a big fan of either character (OMYGODSACRILEGE!) but I love what you've done with them here. Octavia sticking out her tongue rather than looking prim and proper is a delight! :love:

Dude I totally agree. I'm trying to push all my art of her in a more unusual direction lately. It gets a little old just seeing her doing her DJ thing but some of the fanon ideas revolving around her are awesome, especially the bit about her having red eyes, so I want to expand on the idea that there's a much deeper more complex personality beneath that cool DJ facade.

This is really cute and I love the concept! Also those headphones look familiar...

This makes me feel a little better about ~BlackGryph0n's "Lonely Concert" picture. I agree with you: it's nice to see the DJ being a bit shy and maybe embarrassed about what she's listening too, and Octavia's childish teasing it fantastic. It looks like the musician is about to step on Scratch's tail and pin her down to keep her from getting away. There's more teasing to do.

The turntable came out nice too, and hopefully DJ won't scratch up Octavia's music too much.

Also, I like the subtle background details of the curtain and fancy lantern. It suggests to me that they're either in a concert hall or perhaps Octavia's home. Either way (or even if I'm wrong) it's all very lovely.

I love this, but I have to ask why octavia's brown...

not that I dont like her like this, but it just seems... uh.. well... different...

It's because Octavia's coat has a bit of brown in it but is otherwise grey. As it turns out it is *nearly* impossible to replicate this color when mixing paints by hand, and even when you get close it often lightens to brown as it dries...

Not so easy for us traditional artists, we can't just use the eyedropper to get the exact hex code they used in production!

Seeing Vinyl in a different mood is quite a nice change of pace, compared to all of those pics where she just looks bad-flank.
Octavia is a nice addition too,, and I haven't seen many pics of her without her bow :D

! So cute =D

When I saw this, I instantly formed a little story to go with it; Vinyl and Octavia, while a couple (or near friends, you choose), aren't too fond of eachothers music, due to the huge gap between them. However, Octavia one day finds Vinyl hidden away, listening to LP's of Octavias music. Cue cute "Hehe, I caught you!" scene. =D
