Thick Scales... by BlackGryph0n Thick Scales... by BlackGryph0n
"I know you didn't mean to hurt me, so I am not mad at you. You still made it for me Milady, I'm still your little star!..."

DEDICATED TO LAUREN FAUST! WE WILL MISS YOU IN SEASON TWO... :icontwilightfacehoofplz::icondepressedpinkieplz::icondashnoesplz::iconapplejackwhatplz::iconfluttershyisshyplz::iconrarityhoofinmouthplz:

Well everypony, this is it, my last piece for a while... On Sunday, I fly to Okinawa to board the USS Tortuga (LSD-46) and embark on a three month tour of the eastern world!
I am excited, yes; but I will also miss all of you very much! You have all been so kind with your words and actions, I am honored to call my self a part of the herd! You guys are awesome! Thank you, and fair well!

Spike HASBRO and :iconfyre-flye:

P.S. More than a few people have suggested I do something with Shading; I didn't want to deviate too heavily from the stile of the show, but this is for y'all!

I usually don't like doing sad pieces, but I felt so bad for poor little Spike in this last episode, "Owls Well That Ends Well." I just had to do this piece for him.
He works so hard and doesn't ever get much appreciation for it... It was so nice to see him getting some much deserved attention in the begining of the episode, but quickly became very sad when that attention was taken away by Twilight's new, chore snatching co-assistant Owloysius.
The worst part though, was when Spikes oblivious crush Rarity, (who had just the night before given Spike a seemingly heartfelt gift of a beautiful bow tie,) passed an exact replica of Spike's bow tie to that random owl she had literally just met! I can't imagine how Spike must have felt after that, but if it where me, it would have ripped my heart out...

Cool! Also, thank you so much! I might just record myself reading the fanfic with this picture once it's done. Thank you so much!

Why does my heart hurt from looking at this?
As someone who really feels sorry for Spike, I absolutely despise that episode. I'll watch any other but that one.
