It's a crossover! OMG How long has it been since I made one of these!?
But, yes. I've been in a Star Wars mood lately and couldn't help but try converting one of Padme's outfits into pony. Honestly, I just love these films so much, Star Wars is what got me into fantasy! I mean, the first few minutes of Phantom Menace were cool and stuff, but they mentioned "queen" and being a ten year old I think "ermine, big pointy jewel crown" cliche queen. And then this beautiful woman with the strangest hairstyle, clothing, and make-up I've ever seen appears and then...just..
Her entire wardrobe is like one massive masterpiece to me.
Someone actually recomended I use this dress, as it's not as popular as a few others: [link]
Of course, the sleeves were hell to convert, but I think it turned out alright. I had to find several refferences for the hair too. Originally I was going to draw this with Rarity, but I have a Marilyn Monroe pic planned with her so I went with another pony known for her beauty in the fandom: Octavia!
I think it turned out better because I used an Earth pony, since Rarity's horn would've gotten in the way quite a bit.
Also, I hid several Easter eggs in here: In the circles at the top, I added in the symbol of the Galactic Republic, and at the bottom the Galactic Senate logo. In the filigree at Octavia's sides I incoorperated her Cutie Mark, and her name is spelled in Arubesh in the circle surrounding her head. And, to top it off, the sheet music is in fact the first few notes of "the Force" theme, a.k.a Binary Sunset.
And my first time trying out an Art Nouveau style. I might try this again even though it took way too long.
