Commission for TwilightIsMagic

This is a stained glass highlighting the complex relationship between Rarity and Spike.

With the kind permission of its owner, TwilightIsMagic, this piece has been used as an illustration for the G-rated short story "Beneath your feet, what Treasures" on FiMFiction.  Of course you are credited as the artist and your DevArt site is linked  :-)

Okie dokie. Thank you for the credit. But you should know that's not the finished artwork; the piece you've used is a work-in-progress.

Really?  Well it certainly looks quite elegant as it is.

You will be pleased to know that this story made the Feature Box on the front page of FiMFiction. A Featured story gets the story's art and the story's long description onto the front page of FimFiction, so at the moment your art, your handle, and the link to your DevArt page are being viewed by 2,016 people.  FiMFiction seems to average 1,000-2,000 viewers online every hour :-)

Beautiful work! I think you did a really good job keeping it honest to the show, too (I'm not caught up, but from what I've seen, that is) and I think its great that all fans, including those that don't ship them, can appreciate it :)

Stained glass, one of my favourite graphic media, portraying one of the show's most interesting relationships ...

I ship these two, in a totally canonical, platonically complex way.  Rarity and Spike are similar in many ways to Twilight and Spike, with the added element of Spike's crush on Rarity.  It's cute and amusing, and possibly one of the most fun little ships they have on the show.

This is very well done, btw.  I like that you used the fire ruby Spike gave Rarity as the centerpoint.

For me, the shipping is like, maybe ok when he's older. But he's still considered a baby dragon right now, so it's pedophilia to me! >.<

Yay, it's here! And it's pretty much just the way I imagined it to be, so double yay!

I love that extra shading on both of them, as well as that beautiful colour gradient in the glass. It's interesting to see the fire ruby heart used in that upside-down way; it immediately draws attention to the fact that it isn't just a declaration of "Rarity x Spike" but rather a statement saying that something is not easy or simple. Good choice of the symbols, too, as they show the characters' specifics and episodes from their complicated relationship and also look quite elegant and nice on the image.
I particularly like those amazingly beautiful lines of Rarity's tail and mane and the general look and feel you gave Spike.
Great job, I say! It was definitely worth the wait.
