Octavian - Apollo

"An Oracle!" Octavian smiled. "What a cute idea. No, I'm afraid we're fresh out of oracles."

~ "The Son of Neptune", Page 56


And here's Octavian. Yep, I did it. Why? I have no freaking idea :XD: *sigh* I'm not very content with this either. He looks too young, his hand is too big and I guess his Toga has to be shorter (the description says you can see his jeans) but -no kidding- I had fun with the folds xD. Btw, the most annoying thing was the Teddy bear. Honestly :D It took me the longest, isn't that ironic? xO

Aaanyway. I have some free time because the semester is almost over and I'm enjoying it pretty much. Plus, I almost made the first semester! That's pretty cool somehow xP

Really hope you like it ^^ Even though I hate Octavian and I think he turned out too young (could be because of the teddy though xD).

Lova ya ~:heart: :tighthug:

First off, I think this is great artwork! I like the folds in his toga and the crazy face adds a nice effect. But some things you could change would be his hair color. In the book, he has straw colored hair. Here, he has brown hair. I also agree that his toga could be shorter and the tattoo lines are horizontal. His impact age strikes me as 15 or 16 and he is portrayed as 18. I find he is a little too tall and just a little too skinny. He is depicted as scrawny, but I never imgained him as this scrawny. Other than those things, I really enjoyed this piece of art!

Hey, I'd like to thank you for the critique :meow:
Haha, it's funny how one person tells me the lines should be horizontal and the other tells me they would be vertical xP I'll just leave them that way for now :XD:
About his age: Yeah, I know. I didn't really get the age thing right (I never do. Except for Bianca, there it was okay. Obviously coincidence). I'll try to fix it but I don't think I can pull that off xP. About his hair: It IS blonde...o.o Don't know, maybe it's your monitor? But I tried for blonde hair, just a little dirty blonde but defenitely blonde ._. The shadow of blonde hair is brown so you maybe thought that was the colour? Well, the left thing is the colour it is and the right is the shadow...sorry, I talk too m uch xD But my point is, his hair is blonde xP
The toga should be shorter but I don't wanna change the folds right now, was so much work.. T_T
So, thanks for your help, I'll try to fix the age thing most of all, thanks! :tighthug:

To be honest: This is the first time I have nothing to be picky about. He looks good. I like this shading of his toga. Dead plushie is a very nice accent. But, the only things I would change are really, just details. Don't worry: 1) his stripes on tattoo should be vertical, not horizontal. 2) His knife looks more like a dagger. It should be more ceremonial like, thin, little, and silver. Pretty much like a throwing knife. But the last and probably least thing, his face expression. Sure, he looks like he was in pain or ever insomnia, but I would give him a really mad smile, like a crook. But it doesn't change fact, that it's really great. Keep up the good work, because you know what you're doing.

Going out in a blaze of glory. Just like Icarus and the son of Helios. To be fair though, he deserved it. I actually laughed.
