Well, It's Thanksgiving time here in the US, and I finally have a bit of time to sit down and hammer out some of the things I've been sitting on for, like, ever. I started that with another piece I'll probably be posting later, and then I finished this off so that I could post something. The idea of the scene came from a moment in Green where Spike receives some oblique life advice from Celestia. As for what's going on right here, well, that's up to you.

Green is the name of a fanfic by Steel Resolve. It's incomplete, still ongoing, and I haven't actually read all of what's published of it, but I was attempting to at the time I made this. This piece wasn't conceived as an illustration of the story, but one of the interludes did provide the idea to finish this piece by adding Spike.

Beautifully done and such calm lighting really adds to the comfort of the scene. I also love how you contrasted the soft texture of Celestia, the reflective hard surface of the floor, and Spike who is somewhere in between the two. It's all around a really really awesomeness drawing :}
For all that Twilight hatched Spike and is raising him now, I tend to see them as having more of a big sister / little brother relationship. Inasmuch as Spike has a true mother figure, I think it would be Celestia (with Twilight Velvet coming close second).
