Spike Reminiscing by SlateDragon Spike Reminiscing by SlateDragon
Recursive Fanart time! This here's an illustration for the great MLP fanfic "It Takes a Village," which focuses on Spike's struggle to adjust to being a growing dragon living among ponies. If you're at all into MLP, I highly recommend you check it out over here! It's actually been finished for some time, but it managed to engage me so well that I was still thinking about it all these months later. And if that doesn't deserve some fanart I don't know what does.

See that? That is the best depiction I've seen of Spike at that size. Mostly because it is both good and fits somewhat with the cute style of the show. Well done.

Alright. I'm gonna ask one more time without any links. I need a cover for my FanFiction Life of a Symbiosis Dragon. I'm sorry for bugging you. So i'll just ask for the last time and forever leave you alone. All i ask for is an answer. I would like to make a copy of this art and use it for my cover. Sorry for bugging you. I'll just leave you alone.

A good fanfic is like a good drinking buddy: if you manage to find one whose enthusiasms and excesses accord with your own, then the evening can be awfully jolly.

Thanks for the link, and for the lovely illustration!

Reminds me of Kiba and Akamaru;

Naruto: Wow Akamaru sure has grown.
Kiba: Really? I guess I hadn't noticed since I see him every day.
Naruto: What are you talking about? Before I left he used to ride on YOU!

I have read this fic a long time ago and it's still one of my favorites. It has some scenes that I like to come back to and reread every now and then.
Great drawing. Is this the site where they were building spike his new home?

Out of all the adult Spike pictures I've seen, I think this may be my favorite, probably due to Spike's expression. While still having that goofiness he had as a baby, it's now tempered and more stable, and he's a calm and well-adjusted dragon who is grateful for the friends he still has.
