Commission - Princess Celestia with baby Spike by PaintedHoofprints Commission - Princess Celestia with baby Spike by PaintedHoofprints
This was a commission for :iconbjarru:

They requested a double portrait of Celestia with baby Spike, something motherly, inspired by this quote found on the wiki:

"Lauren Faust, the show's developer, had suggested that after the entrance exam, it was Princess Celestia who raised and trained Spike before he ended up as Twilight Sparkle's assistant later in life, where Princess Celestia believed they did belong together since it was Twilight Sparkle who hatched him."

I think that idea ended up getting thrown out in a later episode, where Twilight mentions having raised Spike herself, but I'm not entirely positive. Either way, this was a fun project to work on! It's dripping with cutes!

And that is why I hold to the theory that Spike's "official Canterlot business" that makes him absent from some episodes is code for "Young man, come home and visit your mother."
