I love you, Twilight by CTB-36 I love you, Twilight by CTB-36
:hug:

I imagine since Spike doesn't seem to have a real family, Twilight would be the closest thing to family to him. :)

This is so touching.

 

I like to think that sometimes there's a wonderful mother/son relationship between Twilight and Spike.

 

Your drawing is precious. You captured such a wonderful moment between these two. ^_^

I just have a strong dislike for Twilicorn so I think of it as an accident/bad desision too. One other guy asked me how to start WW3 and I said bring in Twilicorn to MLP and he wondered the same thing. Crazy huh? :P

I like the pseudo-family nature of Twilight and Spike's relationship, somewhere between a big-sister-little-brother relationship, and a mother-son relationship. Well, since her magic did manage to hatch his egg, I suppose a bit of imprinting could be at work. You have done a beautiful job showing this!

Spike: Your the best mother, I mean big sister, I mean, I don't know what I mean. But your my family.

Twilight: Aww Spike. I'm happy to have you for my son, I mean little brother, I mean, oh, never mind. ^^

Wow, remembering the season premiere really made this hit that much harder. This is a monumentally moving moment, and you captured it beautifully. I can imaging Twilight staying in shock for a few minutes, slowly realizing how little acknowledgment she's been giving to Spike's unconditional loyalty.

I've taken a thorough browse of the rest of your work, and I absolutely love your art style ... almost to the point where I wouldn't even mind having your ponies as models for the show! The adorableness would be doubled.

*steals entire collection*

The values in the purple colors are excellent. Both Twilight and Spike match so well, and their shading is well lighted too. The background is greatly rendered; the bookshelves, the flowers, the window, and the wall designs all ring true of the show's beautiful art style-- a style I've come to love so much.

The expressions on Spike and Twilight are especially wonderful, as well as meaningful.

For Spike, I think he sees Twilight, beyond the other main characters, as the closest person he's ever known to a family. It is through Twilight and his family's influence that made Spike who he is. Despite being a dragon, a creature generally seen as vicious, he shows a gentle and loving face as he hugs his fellow pony. He is his own kind of dragon, and he has Twilight (along with the others) to thank for it.

For Twilight, I think her somewhat surprised look may be her realizing just how deep her bond with Spike really goes. From the moment he hatched, the two have been as close to each other as a brother and sister. The two have grown up together, worked together, and are together learning about friendship in their new life in Ponyville. Twilight can rest assured that, just as she's there for Spike, Spike is also there for her, whatever life may throw at the two.

The friendship this unicorn and dragon share is a beautiful example of the lengths and boundries that friendship can reach. I have a feeling their bond will have a greater role to play as the show progresses.

By the way, did you make this in Photoshop? I'm just curious.

Thanks for taking the time to write it.
I'm glad you think I got a lot of things right with this one, and that I handled the emotions well. :aww:

As for programs, it was drawn in the vector program Inkscape with some editing in Photoshop. :)
