Symphony of the Night by Jamey4 Symphony of the Night by Jamey4
One night while performing in the royal palace. Princess Luna finds herself extremely impressed with Octavia's music, and decides to give her a gift for one night. She decides to give Octavia's instrument the power to move the stars in the sky. Octavia is amazed by this gift and goes all out with her music in front of a huge crowd, making the stars dance in the night.
----------------------------------------------------------------
I decided to make yet another piece featuring best background pony. I tried something new with this piece in terms of color. Usually when making an Octavia piece, I stick to the desaturated, old parchment, tanish look and feel. For this one, I decided to go all out with the purple colors of her cutie mark, and her eyes. I then combined that with a very dark blue seen in Luna wallpapers I do, and this is the result.

This is very well executed. The positioning of the starburst effect behind here sets off a large contrast. It makes the whole image of Octavia standing on the mountain ridge seem more imposing, and let's face it: an imposing cellist is an epic cellist.

Also, you chose a good point to stop your purple "clouding" effect, just short of the halfway mark as this means you get to see the majority of Octavia, and it doesn't cloud her.

Also, the stars in the sky behind the main feature are quite nice, they are not too bright, and the dark colour only adds to the image as a whole.

the only slight issue i see [very slight] is that to my eye, her cello seems to be resting on nothing, and that it might be better placed closer to her hoof.
What do you think?

I think I just found my new wallpaper. This will be an interesting conversation piece when I'm chatting with my friends and decide to whip out the laptop for something or other.

Love the concept, love the stars.
She seems a little too dark in front of the explosion though.

Very nice. My only issue is that Octavia's pose doesn't seem to fit her personality, but that really isn't fair seeing as she has no canon personality (well, until season 3 gets here, whenever that is.)
