Giving Up by bigbigtruck Giving Up by bigbigtruck
This is actually an old piece (2003 or 2004) that I touched up a couple days ago. Spike's hair is a lot of fun to draw.

Photoshop 7.

Spike + E.K. = "WOW, it was made for me!!" fave. .)
And still, his look is so sad... Even though he has always been like a "sad smile" character to me, this "Giving Up" is quite a rainy thing...

I love your interpretation of Spike!

This is one of my all-time favorite shows; the style and animation are so freakin' good it makes me sketchbook cower in shame. I ahte to sound like an old codger (because I'm way too young to be crotchety), but I think there's something to be said for how amazing cartoons were before CGIs. I mean, all of the ships and equipment are SO BEAUTIFUL as traditional animation.

Probably THE best Spike fanart I've ever seen. I remember seeing this a while back, but I just got a DA account so now I am able to comment. Truly Exceptional man! This is too awesome. Brilliant Job.

I really love the roughness of the colors and the contrast <3 the darkest shadows are so lovely. I think you really captured the more serious side of his personality too

a very awesome portrait

Its a great piece. I really love the expression and feel you gave to spike. I was wondering if you would consider cropping it more closely so (especially around the hair) to make it more of a dark picture. The white destroys the mood somewhat. It is about giving up

SPIKE! Uh, but whatever...

Nice pick of colors, it's matches the ever present somber mood of Spike's by picking neutral colors.
