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.
