COMM- The NB Crew by MisterMech COMM- The NB Crew by MisterMech
Commissioned by Anonymous ;) and presenting my first art for one of the other FOE side stories on my watchlist.

Just a seemingly typical journey for the team from New Beginnings. Aurora is lost in deep thought, not minding a bit to be Silent Requiem's taxi. Arsenal is on one of her trademark rants about world of muckdwelling ponies, but at lest her mane got tidied up a bit. :D


the story can be read here [link] I recommend giving it a look.

For a second I thought the Alicorn (Aurora?) had a goatee... .-.

Aurora looks so beautiful and noble - she just gives off vibes as royal as Celestia herself in this picture. I see this, and I feel hope for the Equestrian Wasteland like I did with DD's first Sonic Radboom or the day of Sunshine and Rainbows itself.

Haven't started reading the NB story yet, but will soon.

Do any of the side stories include the day of sunshine and rainbows as yet? Third party descriptions of that, plus stories from decades before of other doomed heroes Spike/Watcher tried to get to take up the mantle of the Elements are what I'm really interested in.

New beginnings does have soime mentions of it, since the start of the story is after Littlepip bombs Trixie and Borealis gains enough clarity to become aware of her surroundings.

You know, I just thought of this question.

How is it the only FOE Heroine who doesn't end up being a taxi for a little filly is Littlepip?

Even Snakebite's had to carry around Runs Wild a time or two.

MisterMech Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012
Probably because Littlepip is rather small herself. :XD: Or, perhaps she has if you count the filly's ashes in the bottle she carried.

I don't, but this thought process is giving be an idea for a comic you could draw.

Equestrian Wasteland Heroine Taxi Service. Are you a pint sized filly or colt who's got to get across this unforgiving post apocalyptic wasteland but can't because you're understandably afraid of the immense horrors that lie between you and your destination?

Well fear no more, because here at EWHTS, the greatest heroines in the wastes have taken time out of their busy schedule of saving the world to make sure you get to where you need to be.

Aurora probably not paying attention to where she's going, Requiem reading on her back, and Arsenal whining about how dirty the dirt is.
And Aurora's mane is amazing looking.
And to everyone: Seriously read it.

Well, you already know this but it bears repeating; You are awesome. The commissioner is awesome. And Ilushia is awesome, I just wish that I had the patience to read her chapters more often (I'm still at the end of chapter 7).

This is amazing and wonderful. I really love the way you did Aurora and Arsenal's manes. The slave collar looks perfect and the expressions are priceless. Love it.

You even got the 'Arsenal is unhealthily thin' look right!

We imagined her as having a voice akin to Rozalin from disgaea 2 (english version), or Rainbow Dash with G3's style and mannerisms.
