Spike study sketches. by Baron-Engel Spike study sketches. by Baron-Engel
As several people noted in last posting I have not posted any images of Twilight's dragon assistant Spike from my Equestria dreamscape.

In the first couple of my dream arcs Spike was very much a background character. However in the most recent dream arc he is now a main plot character.

As in the television series Spike has a very deep crush on Ponyville's own fashion expert Rarity. It does make for some amusing interplay at times.

Has the arc already started or not yet?

Not quite yet although it will start becoming more of an issue soon.

I'm sorry I don't quite follow?

Excuse me while I fantasize that the header at the top is official... :iconhappyspikeplz:

It's truly amazing how you transformed his chubbiness into muscle so flawlessly. Granted he's no 'Sir Spike', but there's a clear natural definition and tone to his figure that hints at the powerful quadrupedal creature he'll become. Shame that the last of his baby fat seems to have migrated to his cheeks, though I'm sure Rarity will pinch it out in due time.

I like the anatomy work here. Spike seems very bottom-heavy (probably due to all those muscles for his tail) and the sharp angle between his hips and his spine (especially how his spine is actually over the front of his pelvis) suggests that dragons are designed to be on all fours. Makes me wonder what he'll be like and how he'll get around when he gets older and bigger. My guess is that being upright, let alone walking upright, will become more and more awkward as he struggles to maintain his balance, and then eventually settle for walking on all fours like ponies.

Yes eventually he will have to walk like all adult dragons on all four.

Spike is bigger in your dreamscape than in the show.
Baron-Engel Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Yeah he is a bit taller. However all of the CMC are older looking to.
