Galactic Symphony by Whitestar1802 Galactic Symphony by Whitestar1802
It's a crossover! OMG How long has it been since I made one of these!?

:lol: But, yes. I've been in a Star Wars mood lately and couldn't help but try converting one of Padme's outfits into pony. Honestly, I just love these films so much, Star Wars is what got me into fantasy! I mean, the first few minutes of Phantom Menace were cool and stuff, but they mentioned "queen" and being a ten year old I think "ermine, big pointy jewel crown" cliche queen. And then this beautiful woman with the strangest hairstyle, clothing, and make-up I've ever seen appears and then...just..:love: Her entire wardrobe is like one massive masterpiece to me.

Someone actually recomended I use this dress, as it's not as popular as a few others: [link] Of course, the sleeves were hell to convert, but I think it turned out alright. I had to find several refferences for the hair too. Originally I was going to draw this with Rarity, but I have a Marilyn Monroe pic planned with her so I went with another pony known for her beauty in the fandom: Octavia! :D I think it turned out better because I used an Earth pony, since Rarity's horn would've gotten in the way quite a bit.

Also, I hid several Easter eggs in here: In the circles at the top, I added in the symbol of the Galactic Republic, and at the bottom the Galactic Senate logo. In the filigree at Octavia's sides I incoorperated her Cutie Mark, and her name is spelled in Arubesh in the circle surrounding her head. And, to top it off, the sheet music is in fact the first few notes of "the Force" theme, a.k.a Binary Sunset.

And my first time trying out an Art Nouveau style. I might try this again even though it took way too long. :lol:

Beautifully done, with neat easter eggs to boot. I'm not a big fan of Star Wars anymore, but even so, Rarity fits here.

Oh. That's Octavia? Oh God, am I stupid. Just goes to show how much I need to read the notes first before commenting. Hell, the title should've been a giveaway.

But still, a great picture.

...I knew I recognized the background art. I'm a massive Star Wars fan. Not so big a pony fan, but the Arubesh and the Republic Emblem were perfect additions to this. If only you could be bothered designed a Mandalorian....pony or not, seeing a Mando would be cool.

Whitestar1802 Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks! :D I'm not sure what a Mandalorian is, but I'm actually designing a (non pony) Bothan atm. I mean, Jedi Werewolves? Hell yeah. :lol:

:iconflashfire212:
Flashfire212 Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012
Oh, yeah. And a Mandalorian - try the Fett family. Or even better, look it up on Wookiepedia. Mandalorians - mercenary farmers, who go from killing back to the harvest. Plus lightsaber-proof armor, intense talents, etc...yeah, my Star Wars FCs are normally Mandos.

And a Bothan? SCHWEET! Sure, Borsk Fey'lya (New Republic senator) bugs me, and there was another Bothan, an X-wing pilot (from X-Wing: Wraith Squadron called Grinder) who was an interesting character...but Bothans are still awesome.

Ooooooooh. :XD: I'll need to look them up. And maybe read up on a few others species since my knowledge only goes about as far as the movies. ^^;

:iconflashfire212:
Flashfire212 Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012
...eh, I'm no expert, but Mandos are a group, accepting of all races. Mostly human, but their armor is awesome.

Believe me I can suggest a few good races.

Trandoshan - lizardmen.
Zeltron - blue-skinned party animal
Twi'lek - ...uh...they were slave girls....um, can't say much about Twillies.
Gotal - force-sensitive things with horns on their head.
Nohgri - lizardmen with knives. And epic assassination and combat skills. Loyal to Vader, and later, Leia.
Kel Dor - ...can't describe, but involves gas mask.

...and...yeah. I know more, but meh, those were the first to come to mind.

Haha, you're talking to a collector of the miniatures (discontinued, damn Wizards), trading cards (discontinued -_-) and novels. Don't worry about it, I even scare a few other hard-core Star Wars fans with what I know. Mostly because they stick to the cartoons.

Octavia? Padme outfit? Star Wars? Whitestar, you have my absolute attention now! :clap:

I had no idea you were a Star Wars fan. It's quite an awesome surprise. /)

There's not a thing I don't like about this. You recreated Padme's robes almost perfectly, and I love the way the makeup and hairstyle works with Octavia's face. Great use of iconography and Arubesh too. That just sealed the whole picture for me. (Technically though, I think the bottom symbol was more of the Jedi then the Senate. Or at the least was only during the return of the Sith Empire. It's been so long since I've done any serious lore research... I need to get back in the game. :D)

Believe me or not but the dress looks WAAAAY better on a pony than on Natalie Portman. I know I'm shocked too O_O If I must be honest the only way I could describe Padmes dresses from "Phantom Menace" were TRAUMATIC. I loved the ones she wore on Naboo in "Attack of the clones" but the early ones and especially the one that you used were awfull... But Octavia looks simply stunning! My first impression althought, was something of otoman or bizantine origin ^^
