Poor Spike, he never seems to get any love.

Day 16 of Equestria Daily's NATG. Spike x Rarity for totays theme. Draw a romantic pony/Draw a pony on a date. Spike is a pony right?

Back to the show's style for this one, because it's slightly faster and I want some time to work on a piece for the late gallery.

Really well done. The layout of this drawing is phenomenal, and you managed not to overemphasize or underemphasize anything. And the fact that you were able to draw two ponies and a dragon in one day so clearly and accurately really says something xD

Considering that it was your first time drawing Spike, you did an excellent job. In the way of critique, though, I'd personally move his eye forward just a little bit, and maybe make the stroke on the end of his mouth taper off a little less. Aside from that, though, I think you really nailed him!

Thanks. Rarity's dress took most of my time for this one. Damn she makes complicated dresses.

Spike has a darkness growing in here, that darkness is constantly being fed by his so called "friends". When the time comes they all will pay, and twilight as well as Rarity will get the worst of it.

Don't you worry, Spike, soon she will be yours.

I don't think it's that Spike doesn't get enough love, it's that few people take him or his feelings seriously. Great pic!

He wants to be a big manly dragon, but Rarity thinks he has "the cutest wittle checks!"

And the frustrating part for him is: he does!

In my headcanon Ponyville, the mares wouldn't be able to keep their hooves off him.

Aw, but I love him (not in a romantic sense). :) But yes, I don't believe Spike gets enough love. He happens to be my favorite character on the show. Great piece on drawing him and Rarity. The background looks great, too. :thumbsup:

Thank you. I've drawn all the other mane six so I wanted an excuse to draw Spike. He really doesn't get enough love.

I always remember in read it and weep and Twilight tells Rainbow Dash that you can be both smart and athletic. Spike says "Yeah! Just look at me!" and they just look at him and he has to walk away with his tail between his legs. Poor Spike.

No problem. I love the character's design (it's hard to not love it), he's funny, sarcastic, he's got a big heart, he works hard, has the perfect voice actress for the character, a lot of potential, and I just love it when he interacts with Rarity.

Hey, did you see any of the spoilers from Season Three that came from San Diego Comic-Con last month? Just wondering.

I saw the two songs, yes. Why?

Well, since you already saw them, I wanted to say that it was about time that Spike got to be heard singing, even though Twilight sang most of the lyrics. I can't believe it took more than two seasons for that to happen, considering that he's appeared in a majority of the episodes so far.

I don't know if anyone else does, but I really want to hear Celestia and Luna sing together.

I'm certainly not against the idea. It's something that can be doable for the series, and it's something we've not heard yet.
