Baby Mine by Earthsong9405 Baby Mine by Earthsong9405
Nothing at all elaborate or note-worthy. Just something I whipped up a few days ago when I was taking a break during Watercolor class.

I wanted to do something cute, so I decided to do it with Twilight Sparkle and grown-up Spike. :3

Twilight giving her number one assistant and adoptive son a quick bump on the nose with her own.

Despite the fact that they sometimes act like an older sister and younger sibling, I've always seen the relationship between Spike and Twilight like that of a mother and child. As such, I don't visualize Spike abandoning Ponyville and Twi once he's grown too big for the library. Obviously, he'd have to find someplace bigger to settle, but I can easily see him coming to visit Twi and the others quite often, and vice versa. :3

ANYWAY! This is how I see Spikey as an adult, loosely based on the adult form I've seen him take when Twi accidentally made him grow huge when she got her cutie mark (I certainly liked that one far better than the Greedy version of him). o3o Now that I look at the image as a whole, though, instead of my day-dreaming daze I had in class.... I could have done much better with the colors. :/

But hey, it's more of a watercolor doodle-sketch than anything, soooo.... meh. :I

On THAT note, please do enjoy. C:

Not note-worthy?  This is fantastic!  I certainly couldn't draw this, at least not with my current drawing skills.

I love the traditional look to the piece.  Also, if you don't mind me asking, how do you post traditionally-made artwork like this?  I kind of have trouble posting my hand-drawn work online by using only photographs.

I love these two.  In fact, I started a whole DeviantART collection on these two, and I'm happy to add this piece to it.  These two may have grown up, but their bond remain as strong as ever.  The love and friendship they built over the years will last forever (perhaps literally, with Twilight being an alicorn and dragons being so long-lived).  Still, it's wonderful to see something as unique as this: a pony and a dragon, two completely different races, bonded by friendship and love.

I hope to see tender moments like this in Season 5.  In fact, we already got a good scene with them in "Castle Sweet Castle".  I'll keep my fingers crossed for more.

Great job again!

As for the colors, they look all right, at least to me.  But, if you think they could've been better, use this piece as a reminder of what to do better in the next piece.

Spike- how can you stand to be near me now that I'm so huge and ferocious?

TS- every-time I look at you, I always see that adorable baby dragon I raised from an egg.

Spike- thanks... mom

For a large terrifying Saurian being, Spike sure looks cute. No matter how big he get, he'll always be Twilight's adopted little brother.

I adore this, I so want to see this in the show.

But they aren't a couple. I don't support that ship at all. I see their relationship as mother and son.

Hnnnnnnnnnnnng!

The only complaints I have about this are its low resolution and its watermark. Other than that, it is an adorable presentation of my hopes and dreams for the future of Twilight and Spike's relationship! I like to think of Spike as being Twilight's surrogate son, so...

It's not so much low resolution as it is me coloring the sketch in the span of... what, like 10 minutes? Regardless, I didn't put too much effort into it. o3o

And they are, indeed, mother and surrogate son in this image; I sorta explained what I thought about what would happen when Spike gets big in the artist comment. xD And thanks! c:
