Dragons at Sunset by C-Puff Dragons at Sunset by C-Puff
My first submission from my new macbook! 8DDD I drew it on my old machine though, and on this one the colours look SUPER saturated D8 I hope it's not that blinding for you guys.

I have no idea what's going on here. I enjoy drawing big!Spike though :D I've been on a major Spike kick recently. Maybe because of his awesomeness in the season start.

Ugh. This saturation is REALLY bothering me in the thumbnail image here ;____; I really hope it's not as blinding for you guys. *sob* If it annoys me too much I'll try and tone it down a little bit.

I like drawing clouds. Maybe one day I'll learn how to draw them properly :D

Edit: ok, it seems it's just the thumbnail that's colours are crazy saturated, if you full-view the image it should be fine :D

My first thought seeing this is a reversal of the canon Twi-Spike relationship.  A lone filly being raised by dragons. :)

I like your vision of grown up Spike. Most artists draws him as some agly thing, which i look at and see no Spike soul in it.

Wow amazing paint! the title really reminds me of a book series that I used to read (way back in gradeschool) called the Magic Tree House. the very first book in the series was called dinosaurs before dark. :-) anyway the way you drew spike really reminds me of a painting i posted not too long ago. I love it XD

I think Hasbro got their character development mixed up. Being a dragon, Spike is the one born to have wings, but for some reason they ended up giving them to Twilight.

I prefer the idea that Spike is a subspecies of dragons that doesn't grow wings. Placing limitations on characters makes them more interesting.

Then why didn't they place limitations on Twilight when they gave HER wings?

Hasbro's. They decided little girls would want to grab up toys depicting the lead character as a princess. It was a marketing decision.

(sarcastic) Yeah because little girls had such a big problem having toys of unicorns.

By that logic, almost all dragons would be. But to answer your question.........NO! :angered:

Quite incredible and a nice role-reversal, since it's usually Twilight who gives Spike a ride ;P
I like the background - it seems a bit messy and yet works well with the general feel of the piece. Spike is nicely done as well, his face reminds you that this is still MLP, regardless to the setting. Bravo.

This is a really gorgeous piece! I think what stands out to me most is Spike's facial expression. Even with the growth and all the changes, he still looks unmistakably Spike-y, if that makes any sense. I think he'd be easily recognizable even if the picture was in black and white. But of course it's not, and the subtle scaly coloration on his face and arm are also worthy of compliment. All in all, very well done!

Can't say for certain, but I'm pretty sure I'd be able to recognize the Spike in this picture even if had a completely different color scheme. Which is really impressive in my book.

Personally I greatly hope that Spike gets wings in the show, if for no other reason than that this scene can happen.
