A Storm of Symphony by Jamey4 A Storm of Symphony by Jamey4
Octavia in the rain. :D (When I took in the poll results, she was in the lead. Since Vinyl Scratch is now, she will be next ;) )

HUGE, HUGE thanks to my good friend :iconnianara: for making this vector specifically for this wallpaper. Go check out her page for more awesome vectors (and PLEASE "watch" her while you're at it; we work together often :) )

Very nice work, great use of the rain and fog for the surroundings, however, the overall look of it makes me depressed. The rain and darkness give it a very sad outlook. It could use some more lively elements. Overall this is a great piece. The impact gives me the impression that Octavia is worried about her music, though, at the same time she is playing to inspire. The technique is very nice. The vision gives me the idea that even though your life may be going down a spiral of depression, you can make everything better with the right form of music.
What do you think?

I like this piece, With Octy there playing in the rain. I wonder what can be done by playing music like that? I also wonder if the Cello is waterproof.

In a way, the critique given here makes sense. The "worried" concern for her music could be considered concern that her music isn't appreciated as much as Vinyl's, or what have you. But she is still playing faithfully :P

play on octavia, play on...

On a more critical note I love the lighting around her. The addition of fog around the picture adds a more somber tone to the work while the image of canterlot in the background adds a feeling of isolation to what she's doing further saddening the work. I would have loved her to be in an empty amphitheater as a final touch. 4.5/5

:iconoctaviaplz:Hmm... Now these are some odd note designs... but I suppose i'll give it a shot... A down up A down up.. with the positions they are in on the scale... I'll play it and.."Storms comes as soon as she finishes"
...Well that was unexpected... though interesting i must admit.

Even in the rain, she looks happy to be playing.

This looks fantastic, imo :D. Can't wait for Vinyl.
