I love this pic and most of the fimfiction banners, they just some how bring nostalgia to me or some kind of feeling i cant describe, i love the relaxing and calm feelingin this pic and it makes me wish that i could live a life as calm and nice as this
Is this for real? I've scoured the whole thing, and out of the “mane six,” both princesses, Fausticorn, the CMC, background ponies, and even supporting characters, there's no trace of Twilight's closest friend. Whoever decided this would be a good banner for FiMfiction.net is most likely a Spike hater.
The show is not about ponies. It's about friendship. And I'll be honest, it doesn't look like that was on your mind while drawing this. He is the token male character, the second character introduced in the pilot, the lead character's closest, oldest, and most loyal friend, does more for her on a daily basis than anyone else could even if they tried, and being the only dragon in the cast makes him unique by default.
I just can't fathom any excuse for drawing this many ponies while forgetting to include one of the show's most important characters. Time and room certainly weren't factors. If this sounds like a rage rant, well, it kind of is. Pictures like this are infuriating, in spite of the time, talent, effort, and even feelings that went into them. It's pretty much impossible to enjoy the beautiful day, or to have any positive emotions for it, when the whole thing is basically a big slap in the face to Spike fans and, heck, anyone who merely possesses the knowledge that he's a main character.
It's nice to see this is one of your older submissions, but halfway through season two is still a little too late to justify not taking him seriously yet. Although I honestly wish I could enjoy it, I can't help but find it painful to look at. Sorry, but these are the thoughts and feelings this picture leaves me with.

it works. Stop complaining. I personally haven't ever ever drawn spike. Guess what? I love spike. However, he just doesn't come to mind whenever I feel like drawing. Also, his spines look like they'd be tricky to draw.
