Patron choice of March!
After a grueling battle with Trixie and Starlight, Octavia ended up victorious!

I havn't made her in something like 5 years... it's been a while, but I do like her style. I generally like orchestral stuff, epic music, and the instruments involved. That however, doesn't mean I like painting instruments haha. I rarely do them so I ended up turning the angle for that simpler side. Or I could just say it's totally just for dramatic effect. Eyup. Just that.
Dramatic pose was kinda the challenge with this again, having a giant instrument to incorporate into the composition for once haha.

Anyhow, took me a bit longer to make her because of conventions and I'm not at home. So it may also look a bit different perhaps, but hopefully still up to the standard I had for the last monthly winners.

Now time to listen to some music eh

PS: The voting is available for Patrons, and usually starts about half way in each month till the end.


Approx Time: 6~7 hours?

I love how she's caught in that moment when the last note is still ringing and the musician and crowd are for a brief few moments conjoined in a shared feeling. I'm not ashamed to admit when I first saw this more than a few tears fell from my eyes as well. Thank you for all the work you do. Your art is so very moving and inspiring. You've helped me learn a great deal as well and for that I thank you, too. You've helped make MLP:FIM so much more meaningful to me and to so many others. It's very much appreciated. 

I wish you continuing prosperity in your work and life and hope you have lots of love, kindness, compassion and acceptance surrounding you always.
