Heroes Wanted: The Lone Wanderer by DontAskForCookie Heroes Wanted: The Lone Wanderer by DontAskForCookie
And now (after fixing a rather embarrassing mistake with the last one), I bring you the second installment of my "Heroes wanted" pictures. This time I am proud to present you with the Lone Wanderer!

So... any-pony see a similarity between this version of 101 and a pony from FOE?

Lets see... hes from stable 101, has an missing eye, red fur, a- HOLY COW DID I JUST DRAW RED-EYES?

As dramatic and silly as that sounds I actually did not realize the similarities until I was half finished with inking it. But you know what? I like it, it sort of works as an alternate history in my opinion. Who knows how things could have turned out had history unfolded differently?

Could a slight shift in the fates design have set Red-Eyes on a alternate path, one that would have cast him in the role of a hero instead of a villain?

I guess we will never know, but this picture stands testament that what could have been.

Hope you enjoy!

Words escape me in expressing how exited seeing this made me. I absolutely LOVE what you did for his armor oh my god I'm hysterical right now. This is delicious. Imagine a DJ PON-3 Broadcast of him though!
"Well it looks like that cool cat from Stable 101 has done an exceptional job of cleaning up Fillydelphia and organizing the tribes into a more unified community. He's got ghouls scavenging for supplies in the irradiated pits and doctors working around the clock to help the citizens of the city with their various ailments. His access to pristine pre-war technology in his stable is giving him a leading edge in the wasteland, and his efforts to unite ponies under a new, peaceful banner for the betterment of the wasteland are uparralelled in their success. The kid's got Ponies, Griffon mercs, Hellhounds, hell, I think he even has a Dashite or two! So if you're in the Fillydelphia area and need some help, go there if you can. He'll take anyone who needs it in."
I imagine, if Red Eye had been good, that's what people would have been hearing about him during the events of FOE. Hell, Half of FOE would be radically different if red eye had been a cool bro.

P.S.: You mind if I maybe use this for the cover of a story? I've got an idea and I'm looking for a cover image. I may end up not using it, but it will link back here if I do.

Wow, not often I get a comment on an older piece of work (heck I don't often get to many comments to begin with when they are fresh), to say nothing of how glowing of a response this is Im very flattered. Thanks for sharing, It would be my pleasure to do the same and give you my permission to use this pic for cover art.

Heck I might actually put out an updated version at some point.

Well according to the Red Eye Tumblr in his universe everything that happened in FOE did happen, but he started off as a young stable pony attempting to be a Hero in the wasteland.

Its true what they say, a Hero survives long enough, they may live to become the Villain!

I always like to imagine the lone wander modding his power armor like this, painting it in his vaults number and such.

Im sure their are tons of mods available on the PC version that are similar but unfortunately I only have it on XBox.

Actually, when you think about it, Red-Eye is kinda the Lone Wanderer. Of the Bad Karma variety, of course. Left his home, saw the desolate wasteland, decided to fix it using whatever means necessary despite morality or anything like that.

Anyways, great picture!

Good points one and all!
I actually set out with this series to re-create my own visions of the heroes from the games. The fact that he came out looking like Red eyes was a complete accident on my part.

I really like the armor, has a very wasteland-y feeling. Good work!

Unintentional or not, I am really digging this "what if" scenario. :D

For some reason I also like to think that in this timeline Steelhooves would have accepted the role of elder, playing much the same role Elder Lyons did in FA3. Kind of makes you wonder how differently things would have gone if Steelhooves had taken a stand for his ideals and if Red Eye wasn't a complete dick.

Artistic reasoning: Yes, the same position
Realistic reasoning: Im a lazy artist who failed to notice this before scanning...
