Mafia Octavia by Zedrin Mafia Octavia by Zedrin
Things were peaceful til the Prohibition. When cider became a protected commodity... Well, let's just say, my music career had yet to take off. The danger offered a convenient source of stable income. People wanted their cider. The Apples wanted their profit. I just made sure everyone was happy.

EDIT2: Ask her questions here! Ask Mafia Octavia Have at it people!

This idea just clicked in my head one day.

This was pretty much a speedpaint, done in a bit over an hour... with many distractions. Took a more minimalistic approach. Dunno if it worked well or not, so you tell me.

EDIT: HOW IS THIS SO POPULAR? D: Maybe I should go for minimalism a bit more often.
EDIT3: Coincidentally awesome music [link]

It's an impressive piece of work. The pose looks pretty cool, and to be honest, reminds me of a pose Leon pulls when he reloads the tommy gun in RE4, while he's wearing the mafia outfit. The shading is very nice and adds to the picture. In many ways the lack of a background actually improves the image, as it makes you focus on Octavia rather than whats around her. I cant get enough of the facial expression as it makes her look absolutely badass. The only real downside is that I've seen this sort of work before and it's sorta lost out on originality in that sense. Overall, I would call it a very good picture and I'm very impressed. I give the impact a very high rating, mainly due to the fact that I absolutely love Octavia and I guess I'm being a bit biased. Still, tremendous piece of work in my opinion, keep it up.
What do you think?

Can I use this as a framed picture in the background of a comic? I'd reference you in the description of course.

I blame the hat. Because fedoras are as epic as Dash. But then, of course, RD is 20% cooler...

I had a friend who went to Fedoracon this year, in New Jersey. He came back with the brony virus: caused him to start growing a fedora. Had to have it amputated and administer him heavy amounts of internet to purge the infection.

This seems rather fitting for Octavia. One of the nicknames for the Thompson submachine gun is "Chicago Violin".

Just so you know, this has been my wallpaper on my phone (HTC Rezound) since pretty much the day you posted this. Octavia's my favorite pony and she just looks so bad ass in this picture. Not to mention how amazing it looks on the full HD screen my phone has. Anyway, just thought I would thank you for making this. It's really nice.

Hey, I'm using it as my phone wallpaper too. xD Octavia became my favorite background pony right after I finished this. And then the cards for her came out and she quickly became super popular.

So, kinda a perfect storm. xD

I'll donate money to you if I make a shirt, but I always make them myself. It allows me to afford to make more shirts, I can do more with them, and I enjoy it.
