Alicorn Pipes by harwicks-art Alicorn Pipes by harwicks-art
Just a little image of a singing Twilight with accompaniment by Octavia, for no particular reason.  I don't draw some of the favorite background ponies enough, and I've been thinking of rectifying that by pairing some up with interesting (to me, at least) choices from the mane cast instead of going for the usual background pony combinations.

I know a lot of people were hoping to hear Octavia speak this season, but between the regular show and those "Equestria Girls" shorts I suspect the powers-that-be have decided to avoid trying to give a voice to any of our favorites again after the whole Derpy controversy from Season 2.  So while I suspect Octavia, Vinyl, Lyra, Derpy and more will continue to show up and even get some dedicated scenes now and then, I don't think we'll ever hear them talk, and I'm okay with that, really.  Even BonBon might be stripped of her many incongruent voices...

I can imagine Twilight singing this song, "Someone Like You" from the Jerkil and Hyde musical.

This piece is just stunning! Octavia is my favorite pony and this is the best rendition of her I've seen. The shading, poses and theme make a wonderful picture. I hope you do a solo Octvia.

“…I don't think we'll ever hear them talk, …
He says on an Octavia picture, mere months before Rainbow Rocks.

It was a perfectly reasonable assumption, but irony had other plans.

This certainly is a pretty interesting drawing :) I never thought much about these two together in a picture. I do like the concept of Twilight singing a soft song though CX She always has a beautiful singing voice ;D

I still have a hopeless pipedream wish that one episode in the future will focus on nothing but background ponies for a change. Sort of like "Just for Sidekicks" but with some of our favorites. Won't ever happen, I know, because no matter what they do with said characters some sub-group of fans would get pissed off, so I ain't holdin' my breath. But a man can dream, can't he?

I love this picture, and the idea behind it. The composition (I think; I've not studied art as anything more than looking at pretty pictures on the web so don't expect me to know what all the words are supposed to mean) of the piece draws your eyes to both subjects, but Twilight as a main character gets center stage by dint of positioning closer towards the foreground and the lighting, both of which emphasize her. Yet Octavia is more than mere background, and plays a wonderful counterpoint to our favorite princess (ostensibly; Luna will always be my fave) as well as giving the piece this air of being an actual scene as opposed to a figure study with a background. Also that expression on Octavia's face just makes me want to squeeze her in a hug.

Also love the dress on Twi. Classy, yet simple, very much her.

If this doesn't someday become the header of a Twitavia shipfic I will be very disappointed with this fandom. It looks amazing and seems to tell its own story due the background being simple and thus the two ponies and their expressions getting even more attention of those who look at the picture. <3

Buddy of mine shot me this image a little while ago. I kept coming back to it, really impressed at the talent and emotions involved. Like I'm not busy enough, I do indeed have a story for it started--it's why I went hunting for the owner of the image. Not terribly sure it'll be a ship fic, but it's still early. Who knows.

I imagine she's singing about the Mister Smartypants incident:

And when you're out there
Without care
Yeah I was out of touch,
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
I just knew too much...

Does that make me crazy?...

Come to think of it, that would sound nice with just a cello for accompaniment--if you had the right vocalist.

Heh nice work. It seems Octavia REALLY likes those Alicorn pipes.  :D

And funny, I never expected to hear her, or any of our favorite Background Six to really talk. Although small roles wouldn't hurt that much, like Bon Bon. But yeah, it is in a way enough that we see them at least and powers upstairs in a way acknowlegde them.
