Spike's Crown Jewel by World8 Spike's Crown Jewel by World8
Update! 7/10/12 A commenter suggested a title I couldn't refuse. So there you have it. Thank you so much, everyone, on the reception for this piece!

Wow. (I feel like I start all my painting descriptions like this lately...)

I was seriously terrified to tackle detailing the dragon, but I managed to do it! This is by far my favorite, and most detailed painting.

It seems fitting that this painting features Rarity, The Element of Generosity, as the kind Dax-Rattler gifted me a year subscription to DA, all because he enjoyed my gallery. So this is dedicated to him. :)

Rarity and Spike are (c) Hasbro and Lauren Faust.

Wonderfully rendered, the time-progression is fairly good in keeping with the echoes of 'Secret of my Excess' having Spike having Rarity as part of his 'Horde', but still keeping Rarity 'free'.

The background fits as Spike having a horde of jewels and gold, with his crown jewel being the Heart Jewel that rarity has on her.

In keeping with the Dungeons and Dragons monster model, Spike is imaged really well, the lighting effects are correct that the light reflects off his scales.

Typical of Rarity, having the bedroom eyes, 99% draws the veiwer into her small frame as opposed to Spike's mass, bringing in the 'Beauty and the Beast' or 'King Kong' vibe.

Well Done, I cannot see much wrong with it.

This was beautifully done. Both the scenery and the characters themselves are beautifully shaded. However, not to be rude but, Rarity's tail is drawn wrong. That may be on purpose but, I figure I put that out there. Again, this picture is a beautiful piece of art that I am glad I have had the luck to gaze upon. It looks like you took weeks maybe a month or a couple months to just do the drawing. then the coloring must of taken ages to perfect. Plus I bet choosing the right colors was a pain too. But besides Rarity's tail, I see nothing wrong with your beautiful piece of work You did an AMAZING job. I envy your art skills

BEAUTIFUL, SKILLFUL, BRILLIANT, DELICATE, AND POWERFUL WORK!

But should Rarity be old and gray with Spike now an adult dragon? Oh well.
