Together Forever by HardCyder Together Forever by HardCyder
Inspired by Dawn Fade's fanfic, Vinyl and Octavia: University Days [link]

While the fic does not have any Tavi/Vinyl dolls, it made me think that it could... you know, just hanging out on their beds while they're in class or on a date. I realize that Octavia is missing her bow tie, and Vinyl's missing her glasses. That's because they're dolls and not the real deal :3

Oh yeah, this was my first time using Fire Alpaca for drawing. I loved it! and will not be using Gimp for this kind of artwork ever again. I wanted to use Paint Tool Sai, but I'm a mac user and Sai doesn't support pen pressure on the mac. Ergo, it's useless to me.

After some good feedback, I've fixed Vinyl's chin, and adjusted Tavi's tail so that it 1) looks more like her tail, and 2) it comes up between her legs instead of behind it. Seems reasonable, right?

:: Materials ::
Fire Alpaca v1.0.30
Bamboo Capture Drawing Tablet
Lots of Octavia and Vinyl Scratch wubs

As it so happens, I just published the first chapter of a fic that talks about the exchange of dolls to signify feelings... have a look. Feels like these would fit right up that alley ;) [link]

Haha, now whenever I read that fic I'm going to image these two resting on a shelf or something in the background! Good work! :)

Thanks! I can't wait for the next chapter to come out. :iconfluttershyyesplz: It feels like act one in the story has just come to an end. And act two is going to be when the horse apples hit the fan.

Nicely done, but I've got a few questions:
1. Is it me or does Vinyl's chin and nose look kind of weird?
2. Tavi's tail looks kinda weird
Still, love it. I kind of expect this to be a toy for their foal for when it's born :3
Also, like how you made them hold hands.
"Even if we won't last forever, Tavi...
Please know that our love will."

Thanks! You're right on both counts. I've fixed both, so hopefully it won't look so weird now. :3
