Star Mares S2.1: A Long Time Ago...

I have a thing for old-timey film effects.  I was expecting them to be more difficult in Inkscape due to the primitive layer effect system, but they're surprisingly easier than when I was doing them in Photoshop for Sims 2 stories.  The flashback portions of this story will therefore be very easy to spot :)

In keeping with the theme, Redshift used to drive a garbage hauler.  I'm somewhat surprised that there aren't any models for that out there, given the 'used future' aesthetic, so that's why this design is a lot less detailed than the ones I made from reference images.

Is that last car hauling a Tardis?!?

That's just the door. This train wasn't sourced from anything, so it doesn't look as good :(
Darn. If the side of the car indicates what's inside ...
It's always nice to sleep in your own bed, wherever that may be.

I feel more and more sorry for Redshift all the time. I'm glad she's getting her own little spotlight in the comic! XD
Owo.....
*puts some whipped cream in her hoof and tickles her nose*
She is dreaming the narrative intro...that's quite an imagination

I have a question: will this silent film have an intermission? Some of us might need to go pee.

Stand aside, Williams, along with your orchestra players.
The piano man has to shine in this story.

Or an organ player, that works too.

I wonder if it will be important that the bio-hazard car is right next to the flammable car.

That's actually 'combustible trash', because I'd just watched an episode of Gintama that was about properly sorting garbage (of course, being Gintama, there was a lot of incidental property damage involved in the procedure.  Also, robots).
