Spyro the Dragon by LindseyWArt Spyro the Dragon by LindseyWArt
Hey everyone! Here is a little fan art of my favorite game I played back in my younger years. No joke, I played the crap out of this game.

Anyways, this was something unexpected but extremely fun to do. It started out as a rush of nostalgia, a quick sketch of Spyro ([link]) and then I finished it up. I know I was always a bit sadistic in this game, chasing down and burning every single sheep, chicken, gnorc, and flower in the game and nothing would catch fire. The little pyro and murderous side of me wasn't happy with that, so here you have half of Artisans on fire all for a damn butterfly...

Also, just right now writing that sentence I noticed the connection between Spyro's name and pyro. Fuuuuu...

Anyways, thank you all for looking and I hope you all enjoy!

if Spyro had looked like this in Skylanders I might have considered that the game wasn't a joke afterall and the developers actually cared about Spyro. He had so much potential after The Legend of Spyro and they just threw that away.

Great job on this mate, he and Sparx look amazing :)

Totally agree, everything after Spyro 3 was just a huge disappointment for the character. Anyways, thank you so much Ash!

Wow... now this is the greatest realistic spyro I've seen you, even have realistic sparx as well.
Faving.
I played the crap out of it as a kid as well....
and i still kinda do to this day.....

Oh by the way what is your reaction to these words:
Spike's Arena?

I remember Spike's arena as a boss in one of the Spyro games, maybe the second one, Ripto's Rage,  but I am probably wrong. Also, thank you so much for all the praise and I am so glad I could make fans like you happy with my rendition. :)

I LOVED this game as a kid. I played probably the first 3-4 games that came out. They got progressively worse after the first 2-3. Considering how cute and lovable he was in the games, I think it's kind of neat to see a more mature, more realistic approach to what lil spyro probably looked like.

I way agree, when it went to the ps2 the game just lost a lot of it's charm and aesthetics by going the more serious route. Oh well.

Anyways thanks for comments and stopping by SilantWanderer! I appreciate it! :)

WOW, that looks VERY realistic! Its kinda funny though, he still looks kinda cute. I guess it must be the tiny dragon thing he still has. I've always found it funny how the other much larger dragons never really could/did crap lol.

I envy your patience :) You study real animals a lot, absorb the principles of their nature and then combine the traits of different species to make original and, above all, very believable creatures.

I have to stick to my own way, because I'm too chaotic to use references properly. Instead I look at things, photos and art pieces, study basic principles and ways of stylization, and then rebuild that in my head. Or rather on a sketch layer, and then another and another... making a lot of lines and choosing the curviest and most natural ones. For me, it's a bit like sculpting. I see what comes out unnatural and adjust it. My brain capabilities are not enough yet to build things on the spot, that's what I need to improve. After all, I'm self-taught and never liked references anyway :)

I just need to get taken with something from the real world, not only books and comics. Fortunately, it's almost summer, and that will inspire me, 'cos I love green forests and insects :)
