Canterlot High - The Band Geek and the Drop Out by sophiecabra Canterlot High - The Band Geek and the Drop Out by sophiecabra
So kenket and I are starting a fun side project named 'Canterlot High' where we draw the characters as highschool students. We're mostly focusing on the slightly older characters in the show and putting them in a 90s high school setting. Wanna see more? The Canterlot High Tumblr has just started! We'll be posting more illustrations, comics, and even answer some of YOUR questions as the characters!

I like this Canterlot High much better than the "other" one.  XD

Great job.  Love the expressions.  I really feel the drama, just from this one image.  :)

All i can think of while watching this is the "Walk Theme" from 'Canis Canem Edit' or 'Bully Scolarship Edition' depending on what Generation you are.

Okay, Octavia is a string player. . . I don't think string instruments exist in Marching bands.
But oh well, I think the picture is pretty cool anyways. :3

You are correct. In High School bands usually have a few seasons. One for marching and one for either concert (winds) or orchestra (strings) most kids I knew (and I was in band!) did multiple instruments! I played flute, mellophone, and french horn, myself. ;]

lol being a DJ back in the 90's would have been a guaranteed job with computers, as back then only nerds were DJ's XD
also, i don't see Vinyl being a rockstar when she's DJ, not an actual part of a rockband, for those stating she's a rockstar.
IMO rockstars are people who Rock by playing Rock music. 
That there is my opinion, please don't try to change that ;)
I DO however agree Vinyl has the personality of a dropout or at least, it wouldn't surprise me if she'd ever dropped out.
aside from all that AMAZING piece, love the style and coloring :D
