Just playing around with weirdo lighting, and my love for the old Spyro games~
And my hatred for the new "Spyro".
No not talking about Cynder and stuff, even if I really don't care for it, I mean Skylander Spyro, this horrible thing:
:star: [link] :star:

.....Not even gonna go there.

So, enjoy this piece of the nostalgic Spyro days where all you did was play as a cute dragon and collect gems and free dragons.

And now, nostalgia has come back to kick my ass again.

This completely captures the feel/magic of the original games, thank you for reminding me why I love real!spyro. The new Skylanders imitation makes him look like a pug, and from the sound of the game, it's reduced a beloved char to a Pokemon with no personality. (nothing against Pokemon, just what they did to Spyro).

...Troll Spyro is trollin'... What were they thinking with Skylanders, my GOD... They were gonna make a animated film of Spyro which was cancelled so they could make that abomination >.< Lovely pic by the way :aww:

I think they just used Spyro's name to sell games... and destroy the licence by the way :/

Same here. I grew up with him too. ;w;
I cried when my copy of Gateway to Glimmer broke, and cried even harder when we were able to buy a new copy of it. ;w; :heart:

LOL I saw the Skylander trailer. There goes my childhood.
ShadyShads Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2011
The coloring is awesome! The crystal lights and reflections are very well represented.
I'm glad to see the first Spyro fanart, since that's the one I knew from the start. I love this picture :heart:
CyrodilicPenguin Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
nicely done.

this is very cute! i never played spyro but just looking at that screenshot from that article i can tell its being butchered. sorry bud
Jadeita Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2011
Love it, love it, love it!

Everything is so crisp and clear and bright. You've really captured Spyro's naivety by his anxious expression, and the whole picture matches the atmosphere of the game :D

Gleaming-Hope Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Chibi look! ^^ Sparx is still following him everywhere, helping him in his quest to free all frozen dragons. Love the color theme. ^^
yilli Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011
This is so pretty~
I also hate what they've done to the 'new' Spyro... He looks like a gremlin monster.

holy! amazing Shiny Gem!

Holy fudge...this is beautiful dude, I love it!
And I have to agree, nothing will ever beat the original Spyro games. They were my childhood <3
crazydragonlover Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
LUV SPYRO!!!! I think the skylander spyro is okay... it just don't like the face.....
xStarCrossedx Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh's wonderful to see fan art of the old Spryo! Especially a picture like this one! ^-^ It's beautiful!
I've been seeing a bit too much support for new "spyro" lately. I don't get what's so appealing >: I think "spyro" was just thrown in to be used as a cash-cow at this point.
MoonchildinTheSky Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
oh gosh i used to play this game when i was a kid!!! i love your pic!! it brings me memories♥
ulqui-chan10 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011
i like how you call this "playing around" as if it's no big deal XD good job (:
Haven't gotten to play Spyro yet, great artwork though! :)
Sayuki-kun Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Awe soo cute! And I have no idea what to say about that game but, that Spyro looks awkward...
CranberryNoodles Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Student Digital Artist
why would you take a cute and spunky little dragon and make it so..troll-ish and disgusting

I've always loved the way you draw spyro though c': especially the ripply scale texture and the gorgeous scenery you put him in
theWriterMAB Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Student Writer
:lol: I agree!
The first three Sypro games have remained my faves -- notably Ripto's Rage & Year of the Dragon. :heart:

I don't understand what they are doing...its just too sad. :(

Although Year of the Dragonfly wasn't THAT bad. //shot
Annoyedtoolate Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Gaaaaaaaawh. So nostalgic now... Old Spyro was the best. Whatever the hell that thing is *points to Skylander* it looks stupid.
You really portrayed him well here. Well done!
A-VeyZ Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Ever since Los my inner child has died inside. I wished they would just stop making Spyro games. They should've stopped after "Year of the Dragon"

But this....this is picture is beautiful. A true nostalgic picture of the old games. Just warms me up that people still love the old true classic. Very well done with the lighting as well!
PokeWaysMilez Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011
Oh, how beautiful! 8D
This makes me so happy. :3 Maybe I'll porint it out and hang it up in my room along with all my other pictures of Spyro. x3 :heart:
I see you're a fan of the old Spyro. Me too. .w. He was the best.
Actually, I have a story about my childhood memories with Spyro. If you want to read it, it's here: [link]
The only thing I ask is, if it touchs you, pass it on. I really want people to see how much such a simple thing as a game can mean so much to someone. ^^
And PLEASE don't think I'm doing this for pageviews. @A@;;; I'm not. I just want to share my love for Spyro with other Spyro fans. :3 :heart:
DanLeMan14 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Student Digital Artist
