Colliding Worlds

:icondjpon3plz: "Ain't no party like a Vinyl Scratch party, cause a Vinyl Scratch party don't stop!"
:iconoctaviaangryplz: "Vinyl, when do I get to take off this ridiculous costume?"
:iconseductivevinylplz: "When the party's over, honey buns."
:iconmlpoctaviaplz: "You just said the party would never end."
:iconvinylglassesplz: "Awww yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh"
:iconoctaviaplz: "Is something burning!?"


This is a commission for Axelthebrony, of Vinyl Scratch as Skrillex and Octavia as Deadmau5!  This image was a blast to do, and I tried some new and exciting things artistically.  This piece is a balance between 4 colors, which was a new challenge for me.  I also tried to make the lighting as realistic as possible.  There's a great deal of bounced light and a lot of thought went into each pixel of this image (the guys who sat with me through about 15 hours of livestreams can vouch!)

Let me know what you think!  Constructive criticism would be most appreciated, especially on the new things that I tried.


If you like Vinyl and Octavia, how about checking out our Adapting to Night comic :D

Well, this piece is really well made: it gives a great impact and (even if it was quite expected) the fusion between the 2 worlds is enough original and pretty funny too.
The visual impact it gives is really good, fantastic illumination and use of the shadows, focusing and esalting the action on Vinyl-Skrillex and Octavia-Deadmau5, but without removing all the other scene behing.
I've always liked your way of making so clean lines (and it's obvious that exept for the shadows in the background, this work isn't traced) giving a loyal cartoonish style withoutremoving the possibility of adding more complex content in it. (note, the 4 stars impact is because of the cartoony style itself, unless it's majestically used (like in "The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker") it never gives me the short breath or similar impressions other pictures with 5 stars impact do)

I'm not joking, it's absolutely great to see this picture while hearing to some music, the action is directly transferred to it and with a good immagination you can close your eyes after memorizing the picture and be thrown inside that disco.

First of all I love the way you match them with the DJ's, Vinyl sure is like Skrillex and i have to accept that Octavia is great as Deadmau5, we never know when is the bass drop of he's songs.
The mixing table is awesome, its a great detail to make down the records make it glow neon, and not only down there, all the glowing lights around them makes it awesome!
Particualy the expresions and pose of them really match the DJ's even tho Octy is not that active, draw her as Mau5 sure changes her way to be, and the Mau5 mask is awesome!. It is really hard to draw in 2D, but you make it so well!
I like the fact that they are not exacly aganist the wall like in mosltly places where the DJ's is supposed to be, that they are in the middle, around all the ponies enjoying the music.
Great work.

OK... Let's see. To start, yes the lighting is very expertly done. The green and the orange are very visible, but they don't overwhelm the scene. I enjoy the details you went through to put the dust look in the air. Almost as if the bass was so high the dust from hell came to join. The neon blue effect from tavis deadmu5 mask has a glow that shines out in this dark room.THe individual detail you went through, such as the single on tavis shirt, and pinkie over in the right goes a long long way. Personally I feel it was a grand decision putting pinkie pie in the party, being the pony she is of course. I can't quite tell who the ponies on the left are, look like the cmc, I don't know. The bass is a little tilted, I don't know if you were aiming for this, ( probably were) but it looks good. It gives a lot of movement in the scene. On to the expressions. You obviously can't tell tavis face expression, but her body language says she's having fun. Vynil is looking over in a, "love my life" sort of way. That speaks a lot! She is still deeply enjoying being with her friend and doing her special talent at the same time. I have one quarrel. The actual DJ system seems to bland. For example, every knob on it is the exact same, how are the ponies to tell the difference? You did make change by making the RED slider. I think different colors, placement, and labels would have gone a long way.

I love this piece, it brings really good music to mlp. GOOD JOB NEIL!
Now if you excuse me, I'm going to go yell at myself in the mirror till I'm this good.
