Technically not a pony!

Kidding.

Spike's pretty adorable isn't he?

I drew a lot of inspiration for his face from Len. Can you tell? He went through a lot of hairstyles too, one iteration actually having Len's hair. Maybe I'll upload that picture some time.

Made it look like my original FiM group picture, because I couldn't think of anything else to put in the background.

Enjoy.

You should draw him more often. ^_^

also I love that you went with a slightly oriental look for him. it's different. (Also indicating that he's a different species, maybe? The rest of the ponies look more western in fashion, him being eastern could be the whole ponies vs dragons thing :D)

How do you get the shading this good? Thats always been my one problem with drawing in this style.

It's all in the subtlety in the balance of shadows. If you look closely the hard cel-shaded style is mixed with gradients and soft shading

No I mean like what brushes do you use and how do you get it that exact.

Nothing special. I do everything with a mouse, I just use the default brushes in photoshop

It's just default settings, so it should be achievable in any program, I don't use any special brushes or extensions or anything
