MLP - Spike pen'n'paper by Huussii MLP - Spike pen'n'paper by Huussii
Either writing letters is damn tough job for arm or I made the shading a little bit too drastic.. But I guess dragons are supposed to be strong. I wanted his arms to have at least some shape instead of making them same way they are in the cartoony style, but certainly not this much.
Edit: But I still had to tone the shoulder size down a bit to get some mental peace

And yes, I like to draw everything and everyone smiling. I first though about drawing stoned Spike or something but just went for this more appropriate, lil' bit stylized one.

Just that now as the Skyrim came out and I kinda just wanted to get the rest of this done well enough to publish it. Shadows are a bit unclear and many parts are somewhat hastily done.
I also left the letter utterly blank for the same reason.

Hurrrr. At least I now have something submitted this week

MLP Hasbro

Wow, this looks amazing. I'm gonna check the rest of your gallery, because I'm pretty sure you're the guy who drew that equally fantastic-looking image of Applejack about to pass out.

Such fantastic shading! I love his cheek-fin. And of course his eyes and smile are great. It might look better if you lengthened the forearms and added some details to the hands. Still this is a wonderful mixture of realism and cartooning.

I'm pretty sure those arms will help him impress Rarity
