After his part in the Hearth's Warming pageant at Canterlot, Spike knows the story behind the founding of Equestria by heart. So when he finds himself in the company of the dragon family he is been apart from for so long, he is all too happy to share, with some new magical abilities, the story behind the species that raised him and the country that he calls home. So as he and his brother and sister are settled in for the night and bathed from a long day of playing, Spike retells the story in hopes of getting his dragon family to see – maybe ponies are not so bad after all? (Notice that Tremor is not in the scene.)
My second entry for the Family Fun Contest at
. The timing that fell into place trying to do this was horrible.
My family went up this weekend to our cabin in North Carolina for vacation. My plan was to finish, scan, and post this picture there. And then the second day of vacation, my computer just decides to shut off, crash, and never come back on. We were not going to be there long enough to take it to a repair place, but we would get back home after the deadline passed. So what I ended up doing was scanning it as soon as we got home at 11 PM last night, and work on my old computer which has been known to freeze and crash at random intervals. And just that, it did. I wound up staying up until almost 6 AM trying to finish this, and I'm afraid that my limited time shows in the quality. I really wanted this to be at the same quality caliber as my first entry, but it just didn't work out that way this time. Still, I wanted to get this out there because I thought it was a cute scene, and a good use of the pony silhouette.
Also trying out a new design change for Smokey.
