Octavia - Atlantico by GimmoGear Octavia - Atlantico by GimmoGear
I know I should have been working on my new Celestia, but this Octavia is something particular.

I first sketched her about 10 days ago on my notebook, at school, and liked it. Since then, I have been making at least a dozen of versions, changing something every time, but never feeling really satisfied of the outcome. I threw into this about one or two hours a day, since I started it. And once I managed to get some decent lineart and colouring, I went through an hard time for the background. I couldn't find anything that didn't clash with Octavia. So, I am now fed up with trying and trying again, and I decided to submit it.

Now, the title says "Atlantico". Why? It is the title of a song by the Italian composer Roberto Cacciapaglia. It is a masterpiece, it is the beauty and love and life itself. And it's where I took inspiration for this work.

So, If you want, give it a look, listen to it [link],

I hope you like both the drawing and the song.
Enjoy the music ;)

It was hard finding a design that satisfied me, but this was the closest I could get to my idea =)

I don't usually put disclaimers about broken keys or mouse, because I do not consider my artwork THAT dangerous. So.. I guess I owe you a mouse now?

Nah, you're good mate. But maybe putting up a disclaimer would help prevent a reoccurring theme of broken mice? B-)
