What About Me? by SmellsLikeBeer What About Me? by SmellsLikeBeer
So I think I had forgotten Spike for awhile, even though he is one of my favorite characters. He should wake up from his dreams though, Rarity is a douche and Spike is just wasting his time. Yeah I know the feeling, been there done that, in my early teen years : D didn't get the hint to fuck off early enough and so on. You know how it goes.

I wanted to create a pub like atmosphere but still stay on the safe side of the line. So Spike is having some hot chocolate or whatever non-alcoholic drink, since he's just a baby.

Done with Indian ink and nibs, some watercolor too. Just like usually.
Edit: Probably should have cross-hatched the door as well. It pops up quite disturbingly, eh?

Hey Spike you are still young and you will find true love one day. You will always remember Rarity as your first crush/love.

As a Sparity fan who sometimes gives into his frustration or anger, I happen to think at those times like synnsworld.

In a fan-fiction I'm devising called "Wanted and Missing" Spike lets his jealousy take him over so much he turns into an adult pony-sized dragon, kills Fancy Pants (of whom is also Rarity's husband to-be), raping Rarity, getting her pregnant and running off with her. Spike while on the run with Rarity pours his heart out to her and Rares begins to understand his true motive, thoughts and feelings about her.

Fancity can burn in hell for all I care! Sparity or nothing! And no anti Sparity comment is going to change my mind!

I don't think Rarity's hinting for Spike to eff off, I think she's just supposed to be oblivious.

In more recent episodes I don't even think that's the case. I think she knows, she just doesn't want to egg it on. I think she see's him as a brother more than anything else. Besides, FANCITY!!!

This is stunning. The crosshatch work with the pen on the inside of the diner is very well done and provides an excellent contrast with the outside with Rarity and Fancy Pants, which is very light cheerful because of the watercolor, making the diner look that much more gloomy. Excellent work.

Well the level of detail you put in to all your work is mind blowing.
why rarity try to hit on a married man, just because he's rich, popular and the best pal you can count for, doesn't mean she have the right to do that. :P
Well at least spike make his move with sweetie belle on the finale.
