Ambassador by Siansaar Ambassador by Siansaar
(Figured I'd do a proper full-body shot for Spike as well.)

Diplomat-verse Spike is an ambassador freshly arrived at Celestia's court from the dragon kingdom. His race is famed for longevity and fierceness in battle, but now Spike faces a new kind of challenge: the art of diplomacy. Will his quick wit and good-natured manners be enough to survive the games at court with his dignity and sanity intact? Or will his naivety be his undoing?

He more or less looks like a captain, or a sergeant at least.

The full body shot is neat, especially how it shows off his outfit in it's entirety. I really dig it

He's a dragon?  Do they possess shape shifting powers in this universe?

This is the human version. He's normally a dragon, but here, he's basically a dragon-person.

All he's missing is a white helmet and a red-painted robot to pilot :P

Once again, more amazing artwork by our good friend, Carny.

I'd like to see some full-body shots of anthro changeling queens.

Classy.  This is a story series you are going to work on, I assume?

Or is it already out and I just missed it?

Because this is seriously something I could see myself enjoying.

Well I am seriously interested in seeing more about this.  If you want a writer to bounce ideas off of, my door is open.  I've never really seen a humanized pony story that I really got snagged by, but this might be the first.

The basics of what I got from the pictures you put up is that Spike is the ambassador from the dragon nation, sent to Equestria for some reason yet to be revealed.  He, being the honest and clear type, is quite a shock to the cloak and dagger nature of Equestrian politics.

That about sum it up?

Ah jeez.  Now if I do write something for this it'd have to be a work of art.  Thanks very much for the compliment, at any rate.

We'll see what happens.  :D

with the longevity comes a tendency to grow slower and thus look younger than one is :D

He's a dragon. Or an elf. Who knows how young or old he really is?

Well, he's a "baby" on the show.  So... I'm guessing 5-8 years old?

bico-kun Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
5-8 year olds aren't generally referred to as babies, unless you're saying they're "the baby of the family" or "baby brother" or something, but then that can refer to literally any age younger than the one saying it. Colloquially, "baby" refers to children from newborn to around 3, which Spike probably isn't in the show, especially since Twilight was around kindergarten age when she hatched him. 8 is probably the youngest I'd be able to buy him being since even intelligent 5 year olds aren't capable of many of the cognitive tasks he is. Of course, given the apparent age difference between him and Twilight, she would probably end up being around 14-15 in the show, which is why I tend to put Spike at closer to 12-13. Really, given the lack of knowledge of how dragons mature, the term "baby" is probably a misnomer based on him being much smaller than most dragons, i.e. any not totally mature dragon = baby dragon. Of course, this is an AU like Equestria Girls, where the CMC were 16 year olds, so all that's out the window here.

I'm completely in agreement with you.  If it wasn't for the episode where Spike got that Hulk-ish growth-spurt, I'd actually call him a dwarf or midget-dragon given his apparent intelligence compared to his visible size suggesting his age.

But one thing we have to realize is, this is a kid's show - a kick-butt kid's show at times, but still a kid's show.  It's not ment to be analyzed, it's ment to be enjoyed.  If you analyzed the show, I'm sure you'd find millions of things that didn't make logical sence - personified ponies, and Pinkie Pie's frequent use of "hammerspace" aside, there'd still be millions of things.

Btw, cute avatar. :)
