Songbird of the Wasteland

"Do you see what it is not, Littlepip? It is not a bird in a cage and if it is not, then I was not meant to be either. Come horror or ill, I needed to be free." - Velvet Remedy

Being that I was far from satisfied with my last Velvet Remedy wallpaper, I felt she needed some redeeming.

Overall i'd say its a great piece of art. It shines in giving off the true feel of Fallout Eqestria: Dark and bloody.
I REALLY like the font/background choice. The font specifically gives off a vibe of "strait and to the point", which is fits the mood. As for the Background, I like it because it gives off the wasteland feel because of its boarded up windows and older style.
Obviously the choice of Vector was superb (like most of your other work <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" title=":P (Lick)"/>).
Overall the grange fits very well with Velvet and intensifies her brightly colored mane. In my personal opinion, you did a great job. Keep em' coming!

First of all, I'd just like to say, I really appreciate your wallpapers and taking the time to use my own vectors for them. I thank you very much for that.

Now, onto the review. Another great Fallout Equestria Wallpaper! Again going with the grange like the other wallpaper that uses this specific vector, but dulled down the color scheme and added more "wasteland" into the scene with a deeper background and the bloodstains. Again, I like the color scheme choice and shadowing.

Now, on terms of Velvet herself, I'm starting to wish that you did a different image of her to use to add more variety. (considering that's one of my first ever vector images and the proportions now somewhat irk me) Even still, however, the shading on her is beautiful nonetheless, and really gives her a good three dimensional look. (And if you EVER want Velvet in a different pose, all you need is to simply ask, and I'll gladly do it. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)"/> )

On impact, I honestly will say it doesn't immediately catch the eye. It's rather dark and blandish at first glance and you have to look at it for a bit to recognize the subtle details. Not that you should put anything distracting in the image, it's just that it's lacking of elements that attract line of sight. Velvet's face pretty much is the focus of the image and draws away from the rest.

So all in all, this is a pretty good, clean (or should I say dirty?) wallpaper worthy of my wallpaper folder. Great job.

Given the extreme lack of Velvet Remedy vectors, it would be absolutely amazing if you made another! I don't want to impose on your other work, so if you ever feel up to it and have the time, I would be extremely thankful! :D

I also want to thank you for critiquing another of my wallpapers. I do agree that I was having trouble adding something that would catch the eye that wouldn't detract from the dirty, wasteland look I was going for. I did want Velvet's face to be the focus because, I mean look at her! :D

Oh, and I just uploaded this: [link]

You can use it however you wish. :)

If you have any desired pose and expression, just send me a note and I'll have it up for you within one or two days. I've gotten to the point where it only takes 30min-2 hours for a vector of her depending on complexity, so I definitely have the time to do it whenever I'm free.

Well done. Well done indeed. Curious choice about the schoolhouse, but I works.

Love it. Although a more happy/determined vector for her could have made it better, methinks
Vexx3's avatar
I agree. Unfortunately, there is quite a severe lack of Velvet Remedy vectors. >:

I say yes you have really done her Justice by letting her shine every so bright. She is one of my favorites in the fan fiction novel
