Sorrows by bobthedalek Sorrows by bobthedalek
: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?

Well, if you're going to be stuck in some clothing, it'd might as well be something well-built to handle the fact that you can't take it off to use the bathroom :XD:

Vinyl: If I get another spoonful of lima beans and carrots, I will not be responsible for my actions!
Octadad: What! You are going to eat it all?
Vinyl: *fumes*

Looks great.

What the, Is the diaper welded on or what? I exaggerated when I said "Welded On" but you might think there would be a knife to cut it off (Or not, Guessing about Octamum) and I know there would be a way to get it off though it might not be apparent to Vinyl at the time.

But, It would still be better to keep the thing on instead of her literally lighting a fire under her rear end...

And what an image that is; Metallic Diapers. Maybe if Vinyl sat in Pennsylvania it would rust away in about 10-20 years, Given the calcium they put on the roads here in winter which eats through (Some) cars! (I'm not counting some aluminum cars.)

Ah yes, I remember you mentioning this a while back! I'm glad to see it brought to life! Octadad and Vinyl drinking away their woes is a far too fitting scene to deny. :) Very nice work. Also, I approve heartily of the Octadad stubble.

Well now, a spin on one of the greatly overused yet still hard hitting and insightful scenes of the film industry. I like the one from Who Framed Roger Rabbit most.

I think this is something we all want to do at some points in our lives; drown away the sorrows of life by drinking out of the end of a bottle neck, giving those few blissfull hours of ignorance before reality comes back to haunt us once more.

Make a series of this man. It's a great idea with a good starting point. Smiley face.

I love this whole Vinyl baby thing going on with Octamum. Just out of curiosity, what inspired you to do that?

bobthedalek Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2013  Professional Filmographer
It surprises just how popular this thing is, it was only meant to happen once and never again, but then again, so were the Octaparents! :P

I can't really think that much about what inspired it since the original 'Baby Talk' comic was made on a totally random whim, but I did have initially thoughts about doing something along the lines of this earlier this year due to how Vinyl seems to live life like a young mare, and how Octavia finds how she acts to be very childish at times. I did originally plan for Octavia to baby Vinyl to teach her to act her age, but the whole concept just didn't seem to work all that well in my opinion.

Several months later, Octamum arrived, and then having her being desperate enough for a child to use Vinyl as her new foal sort of clicked into place really.

A nice idea, the "sitting, drinking, discussing random stuff" thing. Reminds me of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy somehow. Not a specific scene but in general. I could imagine such comics as a nice addition. Maybe as some kind of "rest", when you think Vinyl or Octadad need a break or as an epilogue to the other comics. Could lead to some absurd moments. :)

I'm have flashback to the first episode of the second radio series now.

"Look every time I pick up the bottle the spaceship disappears!"

Indeed it could lead to some absurd moments, and I hope to use those to y advantage. :P

Drinking alone, except with two... I really like this picture; as much as I enjoy your usual humorous drawings, something that's little more somber is very nice for a change, too. Sometimes, you just gotta commiserate with a kindred soul over a bottle of bourbon (or two, as the case may be).

Of course, leave it to Vinyl to sip her whiskey through a crazy straw. :)

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?

An ongoing comic of the two of them drinking and philosophizing? By Celestia, yes, please!
