Little Bro by Arcticwaters Little Bro by Arcticwaters
For some reason it didn't hit me until just recently that Spike and Shining Armor would be like brothers, and I had to draw something with them.

(I've heard people call Spike and Twlight's relationship "kinda like mother/son" but I like them as siblings.)

Male pony muzzles are still weird to me. Also something about Shining's mane is awesome.

Sketch: Hey, Spike how about being bullied for 5 years. I'm serious, I was bullied for 5 years.

This is nice, friend. Good job.

I, too, like to think of Spike and Twi's relationship as brother/Sister. So, Shining's and Spike's is brother/brother. And they seem to have a pretty good one at that.

It might help explain things like "Dog and Pony Show" and "Secret of My Excess". More specifically, Shining's example and influence help Spike in fighting against his dragon instincts and live more nobly than he could otherwise. Might also help explain the attraction to Rarity (both white coats and aspirations to nobility).

Spike's life changed when he discovered a talking sparkling Dragonfly in the Everfree Forest.

Nice picture. Though I've always found myself in the "Spike as Twilight's son" camp. It's just so adorable that way.

And then Spike was so depressed, he went to the cakes shop and bought ever piece of sugar coated candy and cakes he could find and engorged him self... Apparently self-image doesn't matter know!
Lol, jk, Spike is still cute, even if hes chubby :meow: :iconadorablespikeplz:

Are, he'd just drown his sorrows in coffee, if a person is depressed enough anything can make them drunk.

Arcticwaters Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
It's like that because of the way his leg is folded. (I looked through other art and pictures of him sitting down and it was usually upside down, so I just went with that too. Though I honestly have no idea if it's right xD)

but make it really romantic, with sparkles and hearts in the background. Then afterwards sexual abuser shining armor will take spike to arbees and buy him a $20 dinner and tell him that nobody will believe him.

Arcticwaters Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
I'm willing to assume this is a joke but that doesn't make it any less disgusting. Rape is not romantic, it will never BE romantic. This is NOT an ok thing to ask someone to draw. It is not funny or cute or WHATEVER you were going for, it's absolutely sick. Spike is a little kid for fuck's sake. This is a vile thing to ask for, and I would never draw it.

Haha oh man you beat me to it xD been meaning to draw something like this too because hblnabnai "little bro." I like the idea of the sibling relationship too; I can see where people would get mother and son but I think that's a little odd since their ages are similar to the other pony sisters. Plus it'd be weird if he DID see her as "Mom" and she's all "oh sup little assistant."

Also I wanted to draw him and Cadance with Pinkie, BUT since for you'd it'd be Rarity, what we know of Cadance now I think Rarity would flip her shit to be a sister in law to her.

I've had the same thought, ever since Shining Armor was introduced. I really dig the familial relationship between Twilight and Spike, and I really like the thought that Shining and Spike might have one, too.

This is adorable, by the way, and I love Spike's pouty face.
