Requests from Viewers

So, I've had quite a few people request some different Octamum mothering Vinyl images over the past week, and whilst it would have been to much at the moment for me to sit down and produce each one individually, I did manage to get round to doodling them on the train the other night.

It surprising how good this was for stress relief actually. I was almost at breaking point with a certain woman who wouldn't stop her kids running up and down the carriage screaming and banging. And anyone who knows me well knows I hardly ever snap out, so it was quite bad to say the least! :P

:iconoctadadplz: "Vinyl, it's 11PM, my wife's in bed. Why haven't you taken that get up off yet?"
:iconvinylscratchplz: "In short, once Octamum gets a pony into certain get up, she sure knows how to make sure they can't get out of it"
:iconoctadadplz: "Yeah, she's done that to me a few times..."

Ages back someone suggest the idea that Vinyl and Octadad probably drown their sorrows due to some of Octamum's...habits. I really liked the idea of that and kept on meaning to draw it, so, several months later here it is. Also, stallions develop stubble now so it seems. :P

It's funny, but after this I'm rather tempted to do a series of comics of them just sat together drinking, discussing the random things. Any thoughts on that?

And Octamum's mothering of Vinyl continues. It's starting to scare me a little! :D

It's funny, but when ever I see one of those old prams all I can think about is a scene from the book "Danny the Champion of the World" by Roahl Dahl, where one of the characters is seen running down a country lane with one secretly filled with pheasants that have been drugged with sleeping pills, and the pheasants start to wake up and fly out of it! XD

That book is definitley worth a read :)

Also, for the record, I'm over the moon with how Octamum and the pram turned out in the first panel. I might actually try and enlarge that and turn it into a print :)

:iconoctaviaplz: "Not on my tiled floor! NOT ON MY TILED FLOOR!!!"

Marmite must be a regional thing in Equestria. :P

You can tell Vinyl obviously had no say in this matter, just look at how Octmum has pinned her forehooves down! Something tells me it might backfire on her when Vinyl no doubt vomits in a split second after this, but then again that may just give her more of an excuse to mother her. =P

Fact: This was originally meant to have come straight after the 'Unexpected Guests' comic as a sort of sequel, alas I was detained by other matters. It does however work rather nicely on its own anyway.

Also, I'm still unbelievably happy with how the Vinyl in the fourth panel turned out. I had such trouble thinking of how to sketch that.

SURPRISE!!! =P

Oh Vinyl, your attempts to lure Octavia to you are fruitless! Also, Octamum probably doesn't want her husband to know that Mares are supposed to be the ones wearing socks! ;P

Well, I did promise a comic at 1000 watchers, didn't I. This would've been online sooner, alas, someone keeps on setting off the fire alarm tonight. The wardens have now worked out which flat it's coming from (Not mine!) and they're waiting to see who owns up in there! :P

Oh Octamum, when will you accept your little Octavia's all grown up! :P

Oh Octamum, where will this madness end? Besides a possible restraining order from Vinyl, that is? :D

So :icongift-wrap: requested this after the 'Baby Talk' comic, but to be truthfully honest, I almost didn't upload this given some people reactions to that piece. However, she convinced me it'd be a good thing to upload it, so good on you Gift Wrap!

Also, this actually acts as a nice set up to a sort of 'semi-conclusion' to the whole Octamum and Vinyl scratch 'story arch' I sort of had going here! :P

For a good while now I've been trying to find an excuse for Octamum to shout "MY REAL BABY!!!" towards Octavia. Then this idea came along! :P

No doubt she won't be letting Octavia out of her sights for the entire evening now! =P

UPDATE: A few people were having a hard time grasping this, so I've gone and updated the dialogue for the second and third panels.

Given how big the flash bulb on that camera seems to be, it would appear Octavia is going for the 'Scare the crap out of Vinyl' technique.

Probably a good thing Octamum's got her dressed up like that then! =P

EQD NATG III 28/30
"Draw a pony struggling/Draw a pony stretching"

You know that rule of simple etiquette where you're supposed to do what the house guest wants? Vinyl hates that rule! :P

Seems she didn't manage to get down any successful escape plans yesterday either! :D
