On a quiet night in Canterlot, Octavia sneaks into the academy's stage. She quickly loses track of time as she practices, slowly falling asleep while playing. Her elusory friend Vinyl checks up her, to find her fast asleep, using the cello as a pillow. Its okay, she'll get a good night's rest.
It was too late at night and too late to retract, once my parents say something is definitive. I still can't believe they threw me out home just for expressing what I think... their own daughter... "you are a disgrace to this family" those words keep bouncing in my mind like a ball of ping pong. I do not know what hurts more, my little heart broken or my hooves from walking too much; Canterlot in a huge city especially if you are a little pony. I have to find a place to sleep, if I only had money could pay one of hundreds of hotels in canterlot but my parents are so ashamed of me that they don't even care what happens to me. Oh Princess Celestia if you can hear me, tell me what i must do, where should I go. I feel lost in this city where I grew up, I know every place, every building, every mare and colt around here and they know me ... hmmm, maybe i can ask any of them to let me spend the night with them... no, its a terrible idea i don't want to bring more shame to my family's name.
I walked for half an hour without knowing what to do or where to go, my eyes were sawn and i couldn't keep my eyes on the road, i was walking blindly until i hit with a tree, the hit open my eyes and i found my self in the central park of the city, somehow the grass under my hooves feels more softer than concrete.
*sniff* I don't care anymore i just want to sleep !!!
I lay down on the grass using the tree that I hit as a pillow covering my body with my bag as a blanket things can not get worst I set to my self... i was wrong. Finally i had found a place to spend the night and now i can't sleep. I miss my bed more than anything else in all of Equestria, why does everyone hate me, what did i do to deserve this ? suddenly the sky clears and the moonlight illuminates all around me that's weird, the streets are deserted and yet i have the feeling that someone is watching me.
This started off as vector work, so I'm counting it as such, even though I decided to say 'f*ck it' and switch to Photoshop for the remaining 60% of it. Drew it in CYMK colorspace so it should transfer to print pretty well.
New shirt design, first major art piece for the year! Woot. I don't really ship, and I don't really care much for romantic Tavi-Scratch, but I can't deny that I see them as close in some way, shape, or form.
Let's just say she's always there whenever I need her.
Inspired by the fan video:"Epic Wub Time: Musicians of Ponyville" Youtube linK:"[link]" not by the part of Bass cannon, but by the part of the two mares lives in the same house. There's a lot of differences between them, one is refined and classy, another is rather wild and boorish(at least in fanon). So there's may be a lot of conflicts between them just as the video depicted. Thus I wonder why Octavia consider Vinyl her friend. And suddenly this story comes up to mind.
I like comic, especially colored comic,. so I decided to draw one just like my previous 4 koma. But the story came up to mind is a bit long, I'm not sured how to present them. I still manage to finish it in the end, but I'm not sured if it suit for the story. Anyway, I think I still need to try different kind of way to draw a comic and find a best way for my art style.

Update in June 5: Oh my Celestia!. Over 17,000 view and 500 favs in one day?! How is it possible?
I don't know what to say. Not just because I'm not good at words(Not to mention I'm not a native English speaker) but I'm totally amazed by what my small comic had done. Well, I think all I could say is thank you. It is such a pleasure to be able to participate in MLP fans community. Thank you very much.
Update in June 6: Thanks, everyone. And thanks EqD for willing to feature this little comic.
Through the feedback, I notice there's different way to call Octavia's nickname, for example, Tavi. As a foreigner, I don't really understand the differences between Octy and Tavi. To me they are all just nickname which are used in close relationship. Could someone explain them to me, please?
Thank you very much!
Update in June 9: Thanks Jenetikitty, Blade10000 and Argofinkal for answering my question. ^_^
Now bear with me. I realize we're reaching ridiculous proportions by now in how many curves and facets these gems have. (I also realize Octavia's element does not look quite as 3D as the others due to the lack of straight edges.) But, er, they're magical gems. I couldn't exclude the lovely Octavia from the fun.
Feel free to download this as a wallpaper or something.
I painted this piece for a new song I produced. I made the song only using apps on my iPhone. Kind of amazing what smartphones can do nowadays! o.o
The song is called "Evermore," and you can listen to it right here!
Not much to say... I've been trying to really get my art looking better each time I complete a piece. My confidence has been waxing and waning erratically, so it helps to try something different and prove to myself that I am a fairly capable artist.
I'm still nowhere near where I'd like to be, though. I need to work harder...
