Virtue Spike 1 by RyuuKiba Virtue Spike 1 by RyuuKiba
From this dev:

Virtue Spike without background and all that.

Why the wtermark? well... this is a fairly large, PNG image I made... and sadnly the internet has shown me I can't go uploading anything like that without something to at least discourage art theft a bit...

I'm sorry, I wish I were more trusting... but heh, I've been slapped by this reality too many times. (same reason I'm not sending this one to any groups... that's for the other image)

Spike and MLP:FiM belong to Hasbro, developed by :iconfyre-flye:
Art and concept by ME

Really like this one. Out off all fanart depicting a mature Spike, this is the one I like the most. Very, very well done.
WIll he get wings, when he grows older?

Thank you ^^ The plan is that no, he won't get wings, though. Always preferred the idea of Spike being a land-drake.

It looks like it was taken right out of the show

This is just about the BEST version of older spike I have ever seen. He’s almost handsome. If he’s so cute as a baby, why does he have to be weird looking as an adult, right?

Yup! he's gotta grow into a good-looking dragon IMO!

Any chance I could get this without the watermark for a cover I'm making? I'll credit, of course.

If Hasbro's MLP team are planning to age up Spike, they should definitely use this model. Looks alot better than their version.

Yeah, this is pretty much the best grown-up picture of Spike I have ever seen.
