I don't like jazz.But that was awesome.
Octavia Pie banner?I'm ok with this.Anything special to go with it?
Neat. I like the look of this one. Really well made. I don't quite understand the whole thing with Octavia, but I have no real discrepancies, I'm okay with this
>I finally got him to do something.He's callin' you out Cereal
I've been wondering... what process is used to commission banners? Just curious.
*Adjusts monocle*I approve of this sophisticated update.
Octavia banner, I love this.jpg
If I had one of those nano suits from crysis, it would be set to MAXIMUM BONER.
Somepony else knows of Rainy Mood. YAY. Not a big smooth jazz fan, but hey, I got some nice industrial!
Great way to herald the onset of OC and competing fanon in the months to come...
This banner and color scheme hits all the right notes!
@ZMorrisProcess: I'm bored, I think I'll make a banner! Or Process: Wow, ____ is now my favorite pony, banner time. OrProcess: Hey Cereal, people sure do like ____ lately, why don't you make the banner this time?
You really need to put all these banners into a .zip and let us download it.
...Shouldn't you be linking to one of the Octavia fan fics instead of "Twilight Sky Over Canterlot"? :PEither way, I approve.
Fuck yeah Turnabout Jazz Fragrance of Dark Coffee :DA post on 4chan brought it to my attention, then I listened to the rest of the CD, and then by the end of the day I was tracking down a Phoenix Wright cart for my DS.Track 10 - Trucy's Theme - Child of Magic is also freakin awesome.
I imagine if Nightmare Moon got a banner, even she would be more humble than this. I don't think I've ever seen a pony relish the spotlight *quite* this much! XD
Godot Music, Ponies and rainymood?...I need DARK coffee, Stat!
Wow, I like this theme!Octavia is also so damn sexy, so that's a plus. :D
Why Smooth Jazz? I don't hear any cellos. Maybe some Apocalyptica would be better for Octavia.
I love this combination, though I'm more of a tea drinker myself.
Need a vinyl scratch banner tooBut you gotta love Octavia i don't know why but she's so awesome O_o...
And I just remembered one of the Octavia pictures I found on e621 earlier today...
She is a very pretty and regal pony! Also quite popular.
Octavia really gained a lot of popularity for a character with barely any affiliation to the main cast, or any other characters for that matter. How come?
Octavia is impressive because it seems like music would be a unicorn thing. At least the actual playing of music, I could see earth ponies being good composers.
I wonder how long until he fallout from that one... thread... on ponibooru relating to octavia reaches here...
Am I the only one who despises Octavia?!
@Anonymousthe character design is just that good.
@AnonymousSome brony put forward the idea that she could be the grown up version of Pinkie's sister from Cutie Mark Chronicles. Her popularity exploded after that
octavia is the best one in my book<3
very nice banner. i am starting to really like octavia.
@SethistoAh, OK. Just wondering, since I've been thinking of making one. Tho I have yet for inspiration for a good one to hit...
Somehow; I feel this is appropriate:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBmM79YadYMGotta love some jazz. (And, of course, Octavia...)
This banner and scheme is... really pretty. And thanks for the smooth jazz and rainy mood combo... I feel a lot more relaxed in a matter of seconds. Now where'd I leave my mocha?
Octavia is definitely shaping up to be one of my fav background ponies.Rainymood <3
@KrugerYes, the OP image for the next drawfriend sure is going to be entertaining!
Nah, Octavia ain't Pinkie's sister. She's just a cool looking pony.
HERPA DERP I can't recognize someone plucking a cello.
I like the banner and color scheme, and the combination of rain and jazz, of course...
@Adrian BronyI remember that thread. I'm almost tempted to link it, but that's just a step too far over the line for me.
@Anonymousyeah but everyone wants to believe that the most poised and elegant character in the show is pinkie's sister... it really does work. I mean yeah she is slightly different in coloration but who cares? just mark it up to pinkie exasperating how drab her life was in the chronicles episode.
Octavia is best pony.
@EdudlsI liked that thread except for the part when SOME PEOPLE started cybering...It was such an intelligent and wonderful discourse outside of that. I still have it archived in a screencap.
@Adrian BronyNow you must link the thread.
Pinkie's sister or not (I for one like the idea, though I accept logic dictates she's just a bgpony), you must admit...she's classy, and that is alluring.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GaoLU6zKawsI'll listen to the song this guy is playing with Rainy mood
It...it's beautiful! And I already have that soundtrack on my iPod. Looks like I'm good to go.LA Noire soundtrack has a good addition of Jazz too.
I'm commenting for the first time in ages just to say that:A) this theme is awesomeB) your recommendation of mixing those two sounds is incredible. the only way to improve it is to youtuberepeat-ify your jazz link; http://www.youtuberepeat.com/watch/?v=HMnrl0tmd3k
@Minalkrai was about say the same...
>no cello playing in the background meh
@AnonymousKind of don't wanna get in trouble on EqD. Even though it WAS intelligent, it was still about human sexuality and was very frank nonetheless.
About damn time!
I just read that fic, never could be bothered to do it before, it was just too long; and maybe it's because I'm drunk, but I enjoyed this a lot, thanks. Oh well, I'll be going to bed now, I hope this'll be a good night for you.
I love octavia! Cant wait for her desktop pony sprites to come out... I'm trying to make my own, but it turns out I'm not that great a sprite artist...I dont think she's pinkie's sister, but hey, it could go both ways.
Octavia time is the best time!
This banner is WAAAAY better than the Rarity one was. I even think this is one of my favourite banners of all time! I hope it will stay for long!
HOW IS IT STILL 4.8I give up.It's impossible to hit 4.9 on that story.
I don't really see what's so great about Octavia
FYI. She plays a DOUBLE BASS! Not a cello.
@Sethisto I can't help but wonder if you and I are referring to the same picture.
>combine Rainy mood with Smooth Jazz...Now I feel like I should be holding a cigar. And I don't even smoke.
That's a Double Bass in the banner; but Octavia clearly plays a Cello (or perhaps a Bass Cello; but those haven't been popular for 300 years).
Octavia's hair is darker than Pinkie's sister's...but I suppose it could have gotten darker when she grew up. Her eye color is right though.Regardless, I do like this Pony and it's an awesome banner. It would be cool if they did make this Pinkie's sister and called her Octavia....that's a perfect name. I guess Pinkie was too hyper to notice/acknowledge her sister during the gala.
...I AM SO OK WITH THIS.
@Krugerit's the one with octavia, pinkie, spitfire, and caramel in the back I think... that';s what he said on ponibooru...
Does it not bother anyone else that shes standing like a person?
Just you wait. Soon enough, Steven Magnet will have his Banner.
Just like almost all of the background ponies,(Derpy, Dr. Whoof, Lyra, Bon-Bon, Etc.)Octavia only has fanbase, so it's good that she gets some time as the 'Questria Daily bannerAlso, I couldn't help but notice that Octavia plays the bass and she has a treble cleft for a cutie mark. Complete contradiction.Also, no love for the viola? The forgotten instrument?
@Adrian Brony Then it's not the sane one I was thinking of.
Damm! this makes me want to listen apocalyptica..
Where is Sousa-pony love?
Ok, that Rainymood website is now my favorite web side of all time.Sorry, Equestria Daily.At least you can take comfort in being the site that let me to it :).
Okay, I'm sorry, but I see the blushing Octavia standing like that and I see her doing a classic "Oops, my Bra fell off, teehee" pin-up pose.ONCE YOU SEE IT!
>Smooth Jazz + Rainy MoodRAINYJAZZ.COM WAS MADE FOR THIS REASON
@AnonymousAnd her mischievous grin makes it all the worse... erm, better... CONFOUND THESE PONIES.
Say, is there a place where I can see all the past banners?
@NaxtsShe's bracing herself against her double bass while she plays. Note her stance.
YAY 4 the new banner!!!(yay)
I still think it's funny that she plays a bass instrument while clearly having a treble clef on her flank.
Someone's been hearing me~
I love me some Jazz, but I'm listening to violent Death Metal at the moment.Also, Octavia is blushing in the banner.... I almost Dawwww'd
Now that I think about it, I want that clef in the banner. I like the glow look to it.
Lovin' the new theme. Finally something not related to the main casts. It's like a breath of freshly brewed dark coffee right out of the morning ambiance.Mmmmm, yes.
@AnonymousAH! Her collar and pink bow tie fell off! SHE'S P-P-PRACTICALLY NAKED!!
NSFW!The originalhttp://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/13874?search=octaviaThe sequelhttp://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/14551?search=octaviaThe sequel 2.0http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/14790?search=octavia
@Ben The original in deed is the one I was referring too earlier.
Coffee, Jazz, Phoenix Wright, and Ponies. This is the greatest combination ever.
For those of us with a taste for something a bit more...METAL! \m/http://www.rainymood.com/?v=rbTozgoj9OQ
YaY! Octavia! :3 She gained popularity pretty fast!
@Shadow PhoenixLook at the banner.I don't see no bass.
I'm going to add to the Popular Demand of there being a page with all the old banners linked in it. Because I -know- there's a number of them i've missed and I know that i like to go back and look at 'em all again, but i was not clever enough to start file saving myself until recently <.<Vote +1 Banner Page!
What a coincidence. I just released my Octavia files for the DesktopPonies program.http://www.mediafire.com/?hi1g49z0cc8jkozNow you can have Octavia roam around your Octavia-based website.
the queen of class. I approve.
rainy mood + smooth jazz = atmosphere. who knew ATMOSPHERE could be attained via internet? it's bizarre, but right about now I could go for some passion fruit tea or perhaps some coffee and a warm danish.
Vinyl Scratch has yet to get a Banner
So now I have an excuse to listen to my Charles Mingus albums
@Anonymous...i love you so much for this.
Octavia is my minecraft skin ^_^
Hey everypony, especially Minalkra; anon@7:27pm here.The link is an embed of Apocalyptica playing 'Nothing Else Matters', if that sets your minds at ease.
At first I was troubled by the idea that she was 'holding' the bow, but then I noticed that she's actually pinching it between her upper and lower foreleg. Rather creative on the part of the character designer IMO.
