Octavia, the Grand Duelist by Zedrin Octavia, the Grand Duelist by Zedrin
More League of Legends crossover art.

Octavia is a refined individual. Swift and professional, unmatched with poise, I feel she'd be the perfect parallel to Fiora from League of Legends. (Only, probably not French.)

Based and referenced from this piece: [link]

I took a few liberties here and there: her scarf is pink with a hint of blue, like her tie normally is; her sword is shaped like a bow, with fiddleheads in the crosstress (I'm rather proud of the concept), her dagger has a treble engraved in it, and the stained glass depicts Celestia as Leona striking down Nightmare Moon Diana, with Discord reaching to steal the elements.

Spent about 3-4 days on this, roughly 12 hours total? 15? Either way, I'm proud of this one. Patience is a virtue with art. Formatted in 16:9 for your wallpaper needs.

Objective critiques are strongly appreciated though!

Wowiee! Amazing detailing on everything!
The 'cello-styled' swords, the metallic armor, the hair/mane flowing. . . dat skinsuit! Everything goes into place in this drwaing! Not only does the original splash-art for Fiora fit Octavia so well, you also convinced me that she would probably have the same cocky attitude as Fiora!

The fact you put the personalized stained glass adds much more punch to the scene. I especially like how it shines down onto Octavia!

I understand the whole color theme is to fit Octavia's grey body and her purple cutiemark~ but I still find the whole color scene looks lacking of vivid colors. It's a good thing, however you added a lot of lighting to the scene so it can capture the reader's eye.

Amazing drawing nonetheless and well deserved for EqD feature!
If there are more of these, I'd like to see your perception of the other characters. . . *cough*cough*Teemo*cough*

good sir, it has been too long since I critiqued your work. (heck, as though your work even needs it any more.)

This was incredible. Your skills seem to be on a constant, sheer uphill scale, and this piece shows it. Her shading, layering, segregation and lineart all work to make this piece something near-unforgettable.

Her expression is awesome, the war she just exudes badassery is something quite incredible to behold. Her armour was amazing, you didn't skip any of the smaller details, something I really tend to see happening in art today. The ribbons and their dramatic coloring speak volumes, and your choice of soft colours speak Octavia.

The back ground seemed a little bit plain in relation to the rest of the picture, it wasn't much of a turn-off, so to speak, but rather a small problem. Not easily avoidable considering the sheer effort put into the rest of this piece, but still one all the same.

Sticking to the problem of the background, it did seem pretty off-kilter regarding her pose, and I'm sure this was intentional, but as one who does not get the crossover this is from, I am talking from an aesthetic standpoint.

Wow, I'm trying to find more problems here, but you got me beat! I love this piece, It has so much going for it! A sheer 9.5/10, because I know there is better work coming out from you and I don't want to go painting myself into a corner for your critiques just yet!

Such absolutely incredible and captivating work! I gotta hand it to its brilliant and talented creator Zedrin-- ZEDRIN?! That's my fursona's old name, what the math?!

Zedrin Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2012  Professional Filmographer
lol, actually I changed my name to Zedrin while still in the furry fandom. Initially I was Zombie, about 2-3 years ago I changed my sona from a wolf to a fictional creature I conceptualized called a kaohnin [link], and changed his name to Zedrin-- 'Zed' adapted from 'zombie' and the suffix just added to make it sound like a name, based on the naming conventions I came up with for the species. :V

Wow... Heh. I changed my fursona's name from Zedrin to Zaedrin in 2007 to avoid mispronounciations of his name. Why I called him Zedrin in the first place however, remains lost to the sands of time. It's an unorthodox name, but damn, did it grow on me!
