More Octavia :P I tried out so many different experiments with color and exposure in this one, and I'm somewhat unsure about the results. I tried not only to toy with the color and exposure, but I also wanted to combine two of my wallpaper themes I usually do into one; this is the result. Please let me know if you like this style, or if you're not too big on it ;)

I do enjoy your pony backgrounds, but often times I find them too simple. A pony with some mystical scene; oftentimes some pattern with the pony as the focal point, but at the side. And although in this picture octavia is rather larger, the sense made in this peice is alike the majority of your works. She looks as though she's gazing at the stars looking at something, but she also looks like a young foal who is trying to reach up to play correctly. Her expresion doesn't remind me of how'd I'd expect a muscion would see their own works, but instead like one who holds their instrument as a prop, and is more intrested in the stars that appear everynight. Maybe the stars are mystic, and maybe she just took a break, or can't take her eyes off them, but i don't see that. As for the stars mixing with the tan lines; it's intresting but doesn't seem to give much understading. It kind of stands out against the night sky as something that doen't belong, but the art itself is very good. The pattern used across Octavia (I blieve it's called a vector?) is well placed, lacking only in the amount of tan placed upon her front that makes it look as though an amber light is shining from some water below her. I'm sorry, for the negative critique, but I did want to point that out.

It may look simple to the human eye, but to me, it isn't. Let the people judge. Yeah, it's plain, but the beauty of this art depends on the person looking at this art. In fact, I kinda like this one.

The stars, the color, the shading, these things are enough to call this art "complex" than plain. I can see it by how it was made. It may look plain to many of you guys, but look closer and you may see the simplicity isn't simple after all. Creating this wallpaper by experimenting each and every other tools you can find shows that you slowly discover new ways to make artwork, and slowly advance to becoming a veteran of art. The way you made this wallpaper tells how you made it, and it's good. Keep up the good work.

Love the two themes combined! The effect is simply amazing! :wow:

Such beauty, however I feel that Octavia needs to be a little closer to her original pallete.

It's odd, this one makes me think of the Dustbowl in 1930's America... Like she's outside, playing an etude to the lost and blue, as a black blizzard approaches :)

Better than anything I've made so far. Love the style, especially the canvas texture that makes this look like a painting.

For some reason, this made a better impression on me than the other ones I've seen in the past. o_O
