Spike and Gilda Commission by Mickeymonster Spike and Gilda Commission by Mickeymonster
Gilda: *chuckle* I can't believe this. The little dragon of that nerd come to me thinking I would help him... What a idiot.
Spike: *snoring*
Gilda: And he ran for so long he fell asleep right in front of me. How stupid of him. Not even thinking of what I could do to him....
Spike: *grumbling*
Gilda: Then.... why am I doing this? Is that because I am an idiot too? Or he is too damn adorable and I simply couldn't let him die in the middle of nowhere? Am I losing my edge? For a little draggie? A cool griffin like me shouldn't do something this immature, no way!
Spike: *snoring*
Gilda: And yet... *chuckle* I can't stop looking at him while he sleeps... *sigh* Yeah. I'm an idiot.

A little dialogue idea from :iconcajobif:  :)
Finished result of Gilda with Spike Commission sketch by Mickeymonster commissioned to :iconraidengekkou:

I had no idea of what to put for bg, so I settled with some blue colors to constrast with their warm colors. Good idea or does it look weird? :s

How could I possibly rate this below 5 stars?
I've seen stunning work from Mickymonster before but this is up there with the most impressive. The dreamy gaze of Gilda's eyes down towards where Spike lain sleeping is the focus of the image.
Spike delicately embowered by Gilda's wing as he slumbers peacefully is one of the sweetest signs of friendship I've ever seen.
And the background tops it all off with an eye catching glimmer of blue. How anyone could receive this illustration in their inbox and it not capture their immediate attention is difficult to imagine. Absolutely beautiful, pure and simple.
What do you think?

:icondarkwolf6090:
The background is simple, as is the shading, but the simple background makes you focus your attention on the subjects, and the shading, rather than making them look flat or simple, makes them look sharp and in focus. The expression on Gilda's face is fantastic. It gives her an air of exasperated affection mixed with smug amusement. Overall I'd say that it's a great example of simplistic elegance, and there is nothing that I, in my limited capacity, could point out that would improve the piece. Well drawn, nicely colored, cleanly shaded, and, most importantly, absolutely, one hundred percent adorable.

Faved for the expressions, lighting, overall tone and the dialogue in the comments. This is masterful... and the side of Gilda I hoped was there.

Gilda expression is spot on, to me. Once I get around to drawing Gilda, I gotta be sure to show her soft feathered side, rather than her beak and talon side.
