FOALS by MisterMech FOALS by MisterMech
While working on the next part of the comic, I figured I'd throw some cute stuff at you guys. :D So, here's my main Trio as foals along with their parents.

Dusty was pretty lucky to have a pretty safe upbringing for a Wasteland pony. His parents tried to shield him from the harshness of the blasted land, but he always knew he would one day go out and have great adventures.

Pike only ever knew his mother. She was a former slave turned Raider. She taught her son how to survive the rougher elements of the wasteland but also instilled a sense of decency lacking in most other Raiders.

Kituo was born a very sickly foal. His desparate parents were willing to strike just about any deal if it meant healing their son.

Was Pike's father his mother's master by any chance?

Slave owners have a history of siring illegitimate children and all.

Possibly. Most likely a fellow Raider was the father

OH all my feels! Jeez Mech you sure know how to create a happy family setting.
Whoever that shadowy appearance is he sure knows how to do his freaky 'whatever-he-did-to-Kituo' magics. Being a weak baby yet growing up to be this huge-plot Zebra.

I tend to be more interested in backstories than the Main Story so this is pure gold for meeee~ backstories yaaay

also Pike's mom is hot :I

The first time I saw this, I thought Pike was saying "Stew wrangler" lol. It made sense in my mind, seeing as how he loves to cook later...

Cute pictures, but where in the wasteland did Pike's mom get those carrots? I thought that fresh produce was extinct.

Wait, really? Wow, it's no wonder that Redeye hates raiders so much...



I'm joking, but seriously, if you had a necklace made of carrots in the wasteland, that would probably turn more heads.

I... don't think those are carrots. Former slave turned raider? I think they are most likely broken off unicorn horns.

Dusty looks like he has changed much.
Pike just looks adorable wearing his pot helmet.
And I'm guessing Kituo's parent did the equivalent to making a deal with the zebra devil.

Also, Pike's mom looks like she might be pregnant.

Really nice work here. Not to the level of win as the curb stomp, but then what ever will be!!

All kidding aside, there's nothing negative I can say about this piece. It's really nice and gets the point of how each character had a different childhood. Makes me wonder what happened to each of their parents.

Pike's I'm sure did not have a happy ending. I mean, with the number of wasteland heroes running around lose, raiders never get to live to be old ponies.

Kazapsky Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2012
On the other hoof, most "heroes" don't live beyond their first raider encounter, either. Raiders probably suffer more attrition from the Wasteland itself (disease, wild monsters) than from vigilante action.

Cuteness aside, as many have already commented on, I, as always, love the expressions you have put on both the foals and their parents. I also like how your drew Kituo like a human baby, rather than a pony baby (which has outrageous proportions). I especially like Pike's mother.

But honestly, Pike is so bucking, Luna damned adorable!!!
