Why No Wings? by Piggybank12 Why No Wings? by Piggybank12
Here's another favorite post of mine from the Ask Spike Da Dragon blog I've been running over on Tumblr. If you haven't seen the blog yet, check it out over here: [link]

I think I've said it before, but I'll say it again: I would like to practice drawing people not only better, but faster. I'm actually pretty happy with how Lauren turned out in the final panel, however I ended up spending a good hour just tweaking her appearance and decorating the room she's in (including that Milky Way Galaxy stuff in the back). I need to keep working away at finding some sort of balance with drawing people accurately, yet still draw them quickly for animation purposes.

It's kinda funny how his character has now been utterly ruined precisely due the lack of his original redesigner's involment in the show.

Actually, Spike was created before Lauren came in! He was in that 1980s movie with Licketty Split!

Yeah Spike, think twice before you say something to your creator. Just look at that brutal and soulless countenance at last panel. Doesn't she look like a monster who is ready to crush you ?

Well not all dragons have wings, like Lung (Asian) dragons, though Spike is obviously not a Lung Dragon, so maybe he's some breed of Draco Terranial Arcturus. Also the green of his fire, lack of fangs, or spark teeth likely signifies that it's not an ordinary fire he breaths but a chemical flame! Just an observation

Well, there's only one explanation for that: Spike's a drake. They don't get wings. :p They still breathe fire, though.

A drake isn't a type of dragon. Drake is just another word for dragons in general, stemming from the greek drakon and the latin draco. Wyrms however in western mythology don't always have wings, but they're usually serpentine. Spike looks more like a tiny godzilla to me.
