Baby Talk by bobthedalek Baby Talk by bobthedalek
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 :)

There was an article on how foals seem to be getting bigger.

That last panel cracks me up every time. I think it's the 'adorable, isn't it?' hovering over Vinyl's baleful expression. xD Fantastic work, yet again. And I have to agree, panel 1 Octamum looks great with the pram.

Yeah, I must admit I do quite like doing little diorama scenes like that first panel. And there's something about that one that just works so perfectly.

It explains why I'm enjoying the EQD Training Grounds so much though! :)

There's definitely something very nice about the first panel that makes it work really well and creates a nice setting. :)

I considering joining in with the EQD Training Grounds myself but figured I probably wouldn't have time for it in between everything else. It's a shame though because I see so many submissions for it that make me wish I was part of it.
Anyway, I'm enjoying your submissions for it so far. Keep up the good work. ;)

That doesn't sound like a bad idea. Maybe if a theme/prompt pops out at me I'll find some time to do something. :) It does seem a shame to miss out on the opportunity.

Vinyl was going to throw a fit, you know go on about how she's a grown mare and she shouldn't be treated this way.
That's when Octamom gave her bottle and it shut her right up.

I'll need to check that book out! It sounds like a great laugh. :D
I'm sure Octamum is just confused since Vinyl rarely acts like an adult. :) Also, I'm very impressed with the rate you're making art these days. And you're quality hasn't suffered at all. In fact, it's gotten better - I noticed that you're using more interesting angles.

:iconbobthedalek:
bobthedalek Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013  Student Filmographer
I think it's mainly a mix of confusion and the fact that Octamum's love for adorable things seems to stem from the want of a foal that's caused her to do this to Vinyl. I'm half surprised now she doesn't have a child care related cutie mark instead of an arty one.

Thanks for the compliment chap. To be totally honest I hardly notice my development if at all, so it's nice to see someone telling me what's changed. As for my rate of artwork, I'm surprised by it as well. Juggling artwork with client work, cafe work and signing documents and leases for my second year of university isn't easy!

I just wish I could put this much effort into my real work! :D

You're quite welcome. For my part, I love watching artist grow and develop.
Also, I find that the busier one is, the stronger the creative urge. No clue why that is. But it seems to be true.
