I've wanted to paint a proper Spyro drawing for ages. I usually try to prioritise my original work over fan art, but the urge became too large to hold back. :D Glad I did it too, this one was heaps of fun to draw over the last few days. I tried basing it off of something from the 2nd game (my personal fav)- Winter Tundra initially- but it ended up looking like a hybrid of all 3 of the homeworlds. And of course the Dragon Shores portal ended up no-where near where it should be. =P

Anyways, enjoy my rare offering! :D

PS. We really need a proper throwback Spyro game don't we? Almost every single other classic platformer has had their HD/origins/generations remake or sequel, why haven't we yet? Same for Crash too. :C Dear Activision...

Edit1: Haha, apparently I got a DD a whole decade before it was even uploaded. No wonder I didn't even realise it. But now I do, hot damn, I got a DD! Thanks guys!

Spyro Origins by IceDragonhawk A very well drawn Spyro fanart with great vibrant colors and details. Espectially the details of Spyro's scales on its body. Well done ( Suggested by Forty-Fathoms and Featured by Ry-Spirit )

"Is this rain ever gonna stop? I've forgotten what the sun looks like. We should go somewhere warm, somewhere sunny! ...Dragon Shores! I haven't been there since we kicked Gnasty Gnorks butt! How about Sparx,  one quick trip to the beach? Last one there's a Gnork!"

What's your fave old classic Spyro?

I like how cute he is in the first game but I think I would have to go with the second game. He's more mature, but of course there are parts from all three I like that make it hard to choose.

First game: I like the first world and Spyro's model. I always had a hard time with Tree Tops in the Beast Makers World.
Second game: I love the whole game. 
Third game: Liked it but had a hard time with the hovercraft mini-game in the Haunted Tomb level of the Midnight Mountain World. 

Remember the bonus world in the third game? When I first opened it I wished I would be able to choose any character from the game and play as them in and out of the level. Would have been cool. I also wished I would fly freely when ever I wanted, too bad I had to wait till Dawn of the Dragon.

The superflame power-up in Dragon Shores I found kinda pointless because you need 100% I believe to get it then after what do you use it for you already completed the game.

OH wait whats that portal on the left side of the big island?
You're absolutely right, Spyro deserves a proper remake!

I have to say this looks amazingly well done in this drawing, the Dragon World from the first cutscene of Spyro 2 and 3 looks so cool, I wish you can explore it. The detail in here is top notch, and I love how you can see Dragon Shores in the portal. :D
