Lego Octavia Mosaic by FallSilently Lego Octavia Mosaic by FallSilently
This is just a quickie upload to keep this page alive. I'm swamped with various OC projects, but I plan to get back to my collection of Celestias soon.

It's a Lego mosaic of Canterlot's premiere cellist, and the first creative brony thing I made, before I ever owned a tube of paint or a lump of clay. I'm a recovering AFOL (Adult Fan Of Lego - an expensive and space-consuming hobby) and wanted to see if I could do much with it for ponies. Turned out, not a whole lot. Lego's bold colour scheme isn't a good match for MLP's pastel one. Octavia's about the only pony whose colour scheme works (and I've since been using her to test out various new things for that reason - plus she's pretty awesome).

This mosaic has been sitting on my wall for several months now, and didn't originally have a cutie mark, while the bow-tie used to be dark purple. The recent release of the Friends line of Lego sets introduced some interesting pony-compatible new colours, including what I call Twilight Purple and Dash Blue, so I was finally able to complete the look.

This is very nice, I'm actually working on a massive LEGO mosaic right now with Doctor Whooves.  Bricklink is a huge help to get the colors one needs, and they do offer a lot of different colors to do MLP characters (although the rare colors can cost a small fortune!)
