Vector - Spike Can Explain... by FaithFirefly Vector - Spike Can Explain... by FaithFirefly
:icontwilightchallengeplz:: Spike....what is this? You said this book was missing. Well, Owloysius found it right where it belongs, but like this. How did it get this way?

:iconadorablespikeplz:: .............

----

I have now conquered Illustrator and finally tried vectoring!!! :D

Though I don't see me doing a lot of these, nor is this vector anywhere near perfect. But as I am still learning Illustrator, I am quite happy with this. :D I noticed that as far as I can tell, there is not a vector on here anywhere of Spike in this particular scene. Come ON, it is so cute!!! :lol: He looks his age! And he seriously needs more love. Why wasn't HE kicking flank along with the others in this past season finale?? :( I wanted to see Spike in a fierce battle with his clones!

Made with Adobe Illustrator CS5. Currently NOT available for free use. Sorry, guys.

Let's face it, Owloysius set up Spike and then brainwashed him and the viewer into thinking that Spike sneeze-fired the book! That ingenious son of a-!!!

Pretty good for your first vector. I know how difficult vectoring can be. Great job on the colors, the only real thing that distracted me was his eyes. Maybe you could've made the glint in his eyes a bit more pronounced.

Twilight has obviously never seen a dragon sneeze :)

Thanks! :D And yes, the eyes were the hardest part. ^^; I had to acquire a whole new set of tools to make them. ^^;

:lol: You'd think she would've, since, you know.....she's known him since he was a baby.

It's all good just something I noticed, you did good with the tools you had.

Yeah you'd think, I don't know why Spike didn't just tell her the truth, but for the sake of the episode... :)Did you notice in "Dragon Quest" one of the photographs was chronologically incorrect?

Chronologically incorrect? :o How so?

In "The Cutie Mark Chronicles" we see that Twilight is a young filly and Spike is a newborn hatchling. In "Dragon Quest" we see a photograph of Twilight at her current age and a newborn Spike hatching from his egg.

She still looked like a filly to me.... It was kinda hard to tell from the picture though.

It is a bit hard to tell, I'm still thinking it was an error though. She looks like how she does currently.

Also it looks like they're in the library?

Adorable, Faith! Isn't vectoring just...tracing though? :hmm:

And I think he wasn't kicking flank because he's a baby and that wicked witch would have killed him.

It's a wee bit more complicated than that. ^^; It's not just a matter of drawing the lines and filling them in. It's more like each color is its own shape.

Yeeeeah, but we've seen before that he's capable of putting up a fight. He could've at least had some little moment. :(

I don't know! Why do they always lead him out of the good stuff?!?! :(

Well, I personally don't think the writers have anything against him or anything. ^^; :lol: The show as a whole really is about the Mane Six, and a large reason why they leave him out of these situations most of the time is probably because of financial or time restrictions. It just makes for bad news for us, his fans. :( But they did seem to pick up the fact that he indeed has fans, hence him getting a couple more episodes to himself. Here's hoping they do more in the near future. :D

BenJJedi Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2012
Honestly, I want to see him get MUCH MORE screentime next season. Oh, and rumor has it that there could be a seventh element that will show up then. Personally, I hope it's Spike because he interacts with the Mane Six the most. That and he really needs an episode where he ends up being the hero. I mean, c'mon. He deserves it. :iconhappyspikeplz:

He does indeed. :D We've seen it before, he can put up a fight when he wants to. :lol:

Speaking of kicking flank, I would love to see Spike get a heroic role during the next season -- if there is a new Element of Harmony introduced, why not Spike? If not, I would still love to see him save his friends for a change. Even though he had bigger moments during the second season and has matured as a character, he also missed a few more episodes. Also, when is he going to get to sing solo? :P Come on, writers! I agree he needs more love.

Great job on the vector. He does look -- aw! :aww:

I hope they eventually give us a hint as to what happened to his family and where they are! :D :lol: Though I actually already made up a plot where Spike finds the dragon colony his family is in, but it turns out that they're in a bad food shortage and it's caused turmoil within the colony. And it actually all ties into how Spike's egg got to Canterlot, and ultimately his own little dilemma of choosing between his families. :(

OneRadicalDude Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2012
We'll have to see. :) I'm interested in knowing where his biological relatives are, too. I think at the very least, there may be some chance in seeing what else he's capable of doing -- could be something that may one day really save Ponyville and all of Equestria. Ah, you made a plot, huh? Interesting. ;)

It's got a bit of a geographical slant to it once you get into the details. :lol: But it's ultimately pretty much that - being who he is and where he is, Spike has the chance to bring dragons and ponies together to some kind of coexistence that could actually really benefit both sides. :o I'd love to see the show bring that to life. :D

I agree!

What did you think about the Season Two finale? Wasn't it better than the Season One finale?

.....Eh. :lol: Wasn't my ideal finale, honestly. And the villain seemed like a Nightmare Moon repeat to me. But it did keep me at the edge of my seat! :D
