Day 16 - Proposal

By littlecolt

What will you do, Rarity?

This is my Day 16 drawing for Equestria Daily's Newbie Artist Training Grounds. However, it did not make the deadline. That's OK, I did not want to rush it.

The theme was "Draw a pony on a date/Draw a romantic pony."

Spike is not a pony, but it still counts, dang it! I imagined this after waking up today, and it burned my brain all day until i could come home from work and draw it.

I may come back someday when my skills have improved further and try to draw this scene again, as I had truly envisioned it. This is my first time drawing anything like grown-up Spike, there. Yeah. With my current skill level, though, a comic format worked well enough.

Rairty looks really good, but Spike's arm and neck seem to be be having proportional issues and anatomy ones.

Yep. I really had nothing to go on with Spike. He took the longest to do, and I am unsure how to proceed in improving him, especially in a more complicated pose like that. Just gonna take practice, like anything else. When he was "grown up" in Secret of My Excess, I sort of didn't like his proportions there, either, so I was trying to come up with my own vision for him, and it only worked out so-so.

But yeah, Rarity was easy (giggity). I can draw mares pretty well, so that was almost none of the time in drawing this. Most time was spent on Spike, and I will probably do some more practicey stuff with dragons.

Greed Growth isn't natrual so the fact it's kinda disproportions him makes sense. The teenage dragons from Dragons Quest would be a better refrence point.

Ironically, most people bitch up and down about Rarity's mane.

I had not even thought about those guys! Thank you for the suggestion, I will have to practice sketching them.
