Spike and Twilight Sparkle by Crazy-Dragon Spike and Twilight Sparkle by Crazy-Dragon
Such an original title, anyhow, no one really gives Spike attention, the fanbase or in the show, so I decided I would put the spotlight on him. I made his design as though he were a teen dragon!
Who knows how long it takes dragons to grow into adulthood but meh, this was just for some fun

Adulthood for dragon...

Probably a number like 1000 at the minimum, seeing as the dragon of episode 7 had planned to stay in that mountain for 100 years.

I really love this design for Spike! :'D In my opinion, this is the best (and my favorite) older Spike design. :3
I wish the MLP animators see this and make this his teenage design. xD

I don't think spike is unloved/disliked...

But did Spike get the spotlight in episode 10! Good to see your art on how Spike would look uncorrupted by Greed!

In regards to fanart, I think the ponies get the majority of the spotlight :P
But alas, he did get some attention episode 10, season 2 is pretty much ignoring him though.

Some attention in episode 10? He was the plot, and his relationship with Rarity? Ambiguous but a heart warming win!

He has made plenty of appearances throughout season 2. I think he has been doing very well considering needing to share the spotlight with 6 ponies. No one is ignoring him.

Yeah, I was thinking season 1 when he had a crush on Rarity, I hadn't seen the NEW episode yet soooo.... I did see it just yesterday though, was pretty sweet and a better rendition of an adult spike in comparison to season 1.

Season 1 he and all the ponies shared the spotlight together, this season it's been mostly individual ponies for 9 episodes. Spike's spot appearances on the end of each episode to write lessons to Princess Celestia, is about all we've gotten of him so far, with the exception of the newest episode. This drawing I have done was just to give him more attention since any fanart I have seen is usually ponies (not saying Spike doesn't exist in fanart...) so I just wanted to put a focus on him.

love the pic! also, depending on the species, about 20 to 65 years. and for a few rare species 200-350 years. however since he was exposed to a high concentraition of magic when he was born he might age closer to a human at first, and live a long time.
