Cellos aren't that hard to lift

It's a Bass, actually

Cellos are a lot smaller

So are ponies. Octavia would only be three or four feet tall in that posture.

In any case, William Anderson (who writes the music that Octavia plays) says her instrument is a cello. That settles the matter as far as I'm concerned.

I see this and I think of the Cello Song done by The Piano Guys. Oh! Someone should make a PMV of that with Octavia!

Octavia is a classy pony; even enraged, she holds an ere of elegance, poise and, probably most pertinently, one hell of an overhand swing.

My favourite background pony and you capture her so well. :heart:

I always knew Octavia packed some muscle for carrying the cello with her, since she got no magic or wings for help

All she needs now is a filly sized donkey companion. Or is that who's she's about to 'ka-bong' for making such a rude statement of her looking like his partner?

Okay, so, I know I've commented on this one already but this thing just won't get out of my head. I LOVE THIS PIC!

Octavia is one of those ponies that sits quietly in the background of the show, really never doing anything to get attention, but you can imagine so much potential for her, and here we have a picture that just blows her status as background pony out of the water to be solidly replaced with full-on foreground pony status! The eyes, her mouth, the set of her shoulders, the way she is holding up the cello... the flow of her mane and tail... even the way you drew her hips connecting to her flanks is awesome!

Oh, and for all you cello lovers out there... I made the mistake of viewing this picture while listening to 2CELLOS [link] performing Welcome to the Jungle. If I was a pegasus... instant wing boner... ;)

This looks a little different, but I like it. I say leave it up.

My take is that somepony challenged Octavia to a cello duel. Not a wise move if you ask me.
