Just wanted to thank you for this picture! It has always been one of my favorites and served as the inspiration for the poster we had done for our project to perform a song by a brony composer who died at the age of 27, MelodicPony. We are planning to have his song "Princess Twilight's Orechtral Suite" performed live by a full professional orchestra as a memorial to him. I run a twitter @MelodicMemorial to get the word out in case you or anyone else is interested. Thank you again and keep sharing the magic.

The WeLoveFine link isn't working. A quick search yielded no results. Is it off?

I just have to say having been in this fandom for nearly 5 years now this piece of art has always captivated me no matter how old it gets. Every time I look at it and I feel a burning desire to break beyond the notions of what is impossible. We've seen it ourselves in the show that the ponies can indeed ascend to that of an Alicorn but this is not so direct in the real world. Regardless it's the idea of it that transcends fiction to the real world that captivates me most. While we may not ascend ourselves due to the acquisition of new limbs, we all have the potential to rise above who we are and be the best we can be.

It took me a long time to realize this was Octavia as I thought it was just a simple anonymous earth pony who expressed the desire to rise to a higher level (not implying they are the lowest race here). While I was a bit disappointed to lose that idea of it being simply any pony, it still retains its meaning to me. This piece is so simple yet it speaks volumes to many, especially myself. Whether you intended for this to be as inspiring and captivating as it is or not, I commend you for it.

In two weeks I'll have been apart of this wonderful community of talented creators for over 5 years and I thank you for contributing to it in the way that you have. May you continue to create and inspire others wherever you go.

I have wanted to get this as a tattoo for years now. I love the imagery and the ideal it represents. I would want to modify the color and the cutie mark, too. Would you mind if I were to pursue that?

Post pictures of the tattoo and leave some links here.

EDIT: Myself and others browsing through the comments would like to see.

Took me a while to find this art, since when do people stop linking the original work?
But anyway, Octavia is one of my favorite ponies, it's hard nowadays to find her not be drawn with Vinyl, why can't people leave Octavia alone? She is perfect like this! Good job!
