While My Cello Gently Weeps by The-Wizard-of-Art While My Cello Gently Weeps by The-Wizard-of-Art
Octavia Melody doing what she does best.

This was done as a free request and gesture of gratitude for :icon24bitpony: for assisting me in the restoration of my computer back in September.
Inspiration was drawn from this amazing performance here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNLswb…

Done in watercolor on Canson cold press paper. Finished on 12/13/13.

Thank you!
I lost count of how many references there were in that episode. Most of Applejack's lines were references. :icondashlolplz:

She looks amazing. I know almost nothing about traditional OR digital art, but I'd say watercolors suit Octavia very well.

I see what Vinyl sees in her.
Vinyl is going to ravage her after the concert.
