Barbershop Pony Quartet by Aurarrius Barbershop Pony Quartet by Aurarrius
In the past couple of months, I just realized that I get very easily distracted and engrossed with something to the point that I sometimes forget even basic needs and everything else. *Cough*Bioshock: Infinite*cough*FIMFiction*Cough*.
Ahem. Anyway, Octavia was surprisingly fun to paint. Maybe because of her dark coloring, I dunno. Had a bit of trouble with the words since I couldn't find the font used, so I had to emulate it, which turns out, isn't really the best thing I've done, heh.

I like how Bonbon and Octavia look like they just caught onto the joke.

Lyra+Vinyl: Withoooooooout yoooooooooooou~

Bonbon+Octavia: Withooout yoooooooooooo-wait, GAYEST!?

I knew Bonbon and Lyra were a gay ship, but I always thought of Vinyl and Octavia as friends, yet Bonbon seems the most unpleased. I just don't know anymore :/

I think this interpretation is that none of them are gay, but Lyra and Vinyl have a great sense of humor.

Well Octavia normally has a composed look to her, so she may actually not mind at all, but rather thinks they're getting a little too worked up over it. And as for Bonbon, she's probably just getting tired of singing the same line over and over again (this song goes on for a good bit in the original game). Least that's my new theory on it.

Whelp, you've got your head canon, and I've got mine. Nothin' we can do about that except fight to the death.

*Twirls spear with one hand* Prepare to die, brony of inferior opinions.

A spear? I hate spears! < Has sparred with foam weapons in the past.

*Pulls out a long-sword in left hand & a short-short in right* But beggars can't be choosers. (even though my dual-wielding style has never easily felled a spear before XP)

*cough* Was I saying something? Oh yes, en garde! Ye mighty warrior!

I noticed that too. Clever, I thought, since gay meant happy before it meant homosexual.

I feel exited for the performance...you just convey such a realness in your art that I feel like I'm there, and when I awaken from my day dream, I feel sad that it can't be real. That all it is is a picture, a drawing, a compilation of curves and lines and colors.

One of my favorite parts of the early. I odd stop and listen to these 4 every time I start a new game of Infinite. After that I got back to hating the whole city again but still. Anyway, drawing. Amazing work mate. Loving the light and the ponies expression. Top notch job.

Love this piece! I really do love the way you did Bon Bon and Vinyl's hair in this. So vibrant and colorful and goes really well with the bright world of Infinite. Also the personalities really do say a lot. Vinyl and Lyra are really into it while Bon Bon and Octavia wonder why they signed onto the deal(?). Also the outfits look really adorable on them. Keep up with the awesome work man!

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I'll make you so sure about it

Celestia only knows what I'd be without you (without you)

If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me

Celestia only knows what I'd be without you

(dun, du, dun) (pa, para, pa)

Celestia only knows what I'd be without you

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I'll make you so sure about it

Celestia only knows what I'd be without you (without you)

Without you

I really like the detail you put on the two characters at the bottom right. Composition wise, it seems odd to include them, but I feel there's a story behind it.

Have you played Bioshock: Infinite? This is a scene from it just with ponies. There is acouple standing in that exact same position in the game.

I would have to agree with you but also If they were removed that space and all the extra space around it would feel more empty.
