Oh god, I’m really nervous about showing you this.
I’m, at best, a mediocre artist, and I really wanted to take my shot at trying your Diplomat-verse version of Spike out. I personally like it, I’ll admit, it’s a little sketchy, but nothing’s perfect. He has a hand at the end of that arm, but…just hands. -.-
If it looks similar, I already posted it on my own art blog, arting-for-the-lolz, so I’m sorry if your getting this twice.
hee, cute ^^
(Figured I’d do a proper full-body shot for Spike as well.)
Diplomat-verse Spike is an ambassador freshly arrived at Celestia’s court from the dragon kingdom. His race is famed for longevity and fierceness in battle, but now Spike faces a new kind of challenge: the art of diplomacy. Will his quick wit and good-natured manners be enough to survive the games at court with his dignity and sanity intact? Or will his naivety be his undoing?
"A dance, my lady?"
I may be having more fun with this than previously imagined.
I really like Kilala97's style (esp. humanized). So here's an attempt to draw pony-dragon ambassador Spike in a similar way, with a little extra bishonen on the side.
Dance like there’s no tomorrow
After a successful fashion show, not even the rain can dampen Rarity’s mood as she and Spike break out into an impromptu dance number while waiting for a carriage to their hotel.
"Mommy look! Daddy taught me how to read!"
"Yes! See? This is the part where Daring Do defeats the crocodiles! And this is where she finds the statue!"
"My, what an eventful page."
"It’s true, I just read that passage a few days earlier myself. Our little Lavender is growing up to be a regular reading machine! She might even surpass me one day!"
"At least when it comes to books without pictures, I’m sure…"
Following my Barb design I wanted to come up with a similar more grown-up version for Spike. As with her, Rarity wouldn’t be alive at this point anymore, but for the sake of size comparison she’s there.
"Lavender, I want you to meet my best friend in the world, your auntie Twilight Sparkle. Say hello to Princess Twilight!"
"Hey, are you telling me you’re gonna ignore the princess? What would mommy say?"
Babies just have no attention span.
