Taekwondoin Vinyl Scratch by Agu-Fungus Taekwondoin Vinyl Scratch by Agu-Fungus
Now that I finally got some privacy again (and a new PC, too), I was finally able to make this drawing, this time with Vinyl Scratch as a Taekwondo practitioner. I really, really love how this turned out. Then again, DJ P0N3 alway makes an awesome human. Next is Lyra.

This may just be me, but I would have thought she'd go for capoeira  given her DJing sense of rhythm and timing.  Unless you were going for strictly Asian martial arts, Agu-Fungus.

If capoeira is what you're looking for, I already did that for Pinkie Pie:

Kind of wondering why Taekwondo. The Picture looks great and the other martial arts styles fit the characters, except maybe Fluttershy and Wrestling, but I could see the connection.

Here however, I'm really wondering where the connection came from, since Taekwondo as far as I know has nothing to do music.

Well, I chose Taekwondo because Vinyl's colors reminded me of TKD uniforms like those worn by Kaphwan Kim and Hwoarang, so I made her a Taekwondoin, too. Thanks for asking.

Suppose so. I was actually thining for Octavia maybe having her be skilled in Yumi Bow Archery would be appropriate since she's accustomed to lifting and carrying a large object and a Bow and Arrow seems like a sensible transition from a Cello and Bow. Just a thought.

Wow, this one is a nice one 10/10. But i want to say two things
- As a Taekwondo... student? trainee? nevermind; I found weird the japanese typo here. I found that you used it with the other pics related, so I cannot ask more
- I noticed that you put "PON..." in her left arm. Vocaloid reference?

PD: :happybounce:

Actually, it's a nod to jonjoseco's version of Vinyl ( johnjoseco.deviantart.com/art/… ). As for her discipline, she trains on her own, or with a partner, so she is not a student or a trainee. And I am glad that you liked it.

I noticed that a lot of commentators here are wondering what kind of martial art Vinyl's BFF (best frenemy forever) Octavia would use.  I don't claim to be an expert in ANY sort of martial art, but I got an idea based off of Tekken's Leo Kliesen.  I mostly based this idea off of how Leo is a German, and how Octavia's taste in classical music would probably have given her a taste for German composers like Bach and Wagner (and I can totally see her using "Flight of the Valkyries" as her theme music too).

Leo uses martial art called "Bājíquán", which, and I quote directly from Leo's Tekkenpedia entry, is "a Chinese martial art that features explosive, short range power and is famous for it's elbow strikes. The style focuses on being more direct, culminating in powerful, fast strikes that will render it's opponent unable to continue."  True, that sounds somewhat more aggressive and brutal than what most people would think of Octavia, but if Fluttershy is a pro-wrestler that can body-slam, pile-drive, and choke-hold her opponents in a way that would make Beth Phoenix jealous, I say it's still a good idea for Octavia's martial art as any.  The outfit will probably be based on Leo's secondary costume (a particularly swanky-looking tuxedo), but with black and grey tones to contrast Vinyl's predominantly white outfit.

A secondary choice for Octavia would be using Lili's fighting style instead (and probably would fit Octavia's character better by being absurdly graceful and elegant), but I personally prefer Leo's Bājíquán for it being able to go toe-to-toe with Vinyl's Taekwondo in a no-holds-barred match - which, if they have a rivalry on par with most video game fighter grudges, will most certainly escalate into a battle royale brawl that'll leave the winner barely standing on her feet, and loser sent to the infirmary ward.
