Spyro The Dragon - First Attempt At Spyro Art by Destiny-The-Hedgimon Spyro The Dragon - First Attempt At Spyro Art by Destiny-The-Hedgimon
If you read my most recent journal then you would have known that i got back into a childhood interest and it was indeed Spyro The Dragon :iconspyrothedragonplz: ^^.

I am not kidding when i was like 8 years old, I WAS OBSESSED WITH HIM TO THE POINT YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE xD.With the combination of me and my dad (yes he was into it too) we was able to beat the first 3 games 100% and we collected EVERYTHING in those games which took YEARS to do so ^__^.

What's funny is that we bought the first three games in the wrong order so we got a bit confused with some of the events especially when you see hunter and some other characters in one game, but there no where to be seen in the other :iconxd--plz: We bought Spyro 3 Year Of The Dragon first and it was my FAVORITE Spyro game of all time. We then bought Spyro The Dragon which was officially the first game made, and then we Bought Spyro 2 Ripto's rage xD.

I bought the forth and fifth games of the series (Enter The DragonFly and A Hero's Tail) I like the forth since the gameplay seemed fairly close to the original three games, but i didn't like the fifth at all. And i wasn't at all interested in the Legend Of Spyro series (sorry if this offends you ) so i never bought them. And that Skylander's version looks completely NOT SPYRO!!Which still gets me angry,but what's funny is that i have the game and its not that bad (well as long as you have some money in your pocket and ignore Spyro's look you'll be fine xD).

My most favorite look for him is diffidently the classic look, the look i grew up with and came to love :heart:. So when i ever draw Spyro again I WILL ONLY DRAW HIM IN THIS STYLE ONLY SINCE I LOVE IT!!

But yes this is my first ever attempt at drawing Spyro.Well actually my second, my first i drew in like 3rd grade and it was a complete fail (i still have the drawing after all these years :XD:) I tried a different attempt at the lineart and the shading.This pic about 2 hours to color so its a bit time consuming, but not as much as Sonic Adventure Style thank god xD.

I hope you like Spyro, and be ready to see more art of him soon ^^.

Aww thanks a bunch :). I'm so glad you liked my second attempt at Spyro arts xD.

Your art is good ^^ . With just a little more practice you'll get much better at it like i did :D. Practice really does help ^__^.

And for this drawing i used an official picture for reference so i didn't exactly draw this from my mind :XD:. When i draw something new that's what i normally do. Look off a couple OFFICIAL pics from somewhere and draw them till i get the handle of the style and then i make my own poses :la:. So if this pose looks familiar to you then you know why xD.

That's wicked for a first/second attempt at Spyro.

Spyro the Dragon is my favourite video game character, and is a childhood memory to me.

Even spyro himself is happy to hear that xD
:iconspyrothedragonplz:
:iconmylittleboxdance:

But yeah, when i was in elementary school, Spyro was MY LIFE!! I still remember the day when my dad won me a Spyro plushie at a theme park. I still have him to this day :D. My dad also won a Crash Bandicoot plush that same day for my younger brother :).

I still have the older games ^^ . Once in a while i decide to just play them even though i beat them MULTIPLE times :XD:. They never get old to me, and i prefer the older games A LOT more then the newer games .

Actually this is my second. My first attempt i did when i was in either 2nd or 3rd grade and it was a FAIL xD.

Aww! Thanks a bunch Speedio my good friend :meow:. I am so happy you love spyro :heart:.

Its A LOT easier for me to draw something new anymore ESPECIALLY when i keep a prong folder FULL of picture reference's of all sorts of characters from different series. I swear, its the best thing i ever done.

All i do is put 6-9 pictures in Microsoft word and arrange them and adjust the sizes to my liking and print them out. The best thing about this is its NOT MY OWN INK TO BEGIN WITH :D! About 80% of my reference's came from my school's only color ink printer :dummy:. And then i put them in those plastic sleeve covers so they don't get ruined and put them in the prongs of the folder. It got to the point that the only thing that's keeping it together now is shiny gray string since there's to much paper for the prongs to handle xD.

Its the ULTIMATE REFERENCE BOOK!! I HAVE HUNDRED'S OF REFERENCE'S IN IT :la:!! INCLUDING MY OWN AND OTHERS FAN CHARACTER'S!!

Well still this is still to good!!!!

Your so welcome my dear friend Destiny! I do love spyro but i prefer the Spyro from the playstation days, that's the one im attached to, not the ugly one from skylanders!

Well its good to have a reference her and there! I might start doing that, cuz i definatly need to learn to make more people than sonic lol.

But you really have that many!!!!
That's a nice way to use a school instead of home! =D lol
By any chance wud speedio happen to be in there hahaha

OH MY GOD I SOOOOOOO AGREE WITH YOU ON THE WHOLE CLASSIC SPYRO THING!!!!

My favorite Spyro game OF ALL TIME is diffidently year of the dragon.Speaking of which, monday was the start of the chinese new year and this is the YEAR OF THE DRAGON :iconspyrothedragonplz:!!!I honestly can't stand the skylander's spyro. I have no idea why the creator's would design him that way in the first place. The only people that knows what he REALLY LOOKS like are people your and my age. This look just completely confuses the younger generation to believe that this is the ONLY SPYRO LOOK and the ONLY SPYRO WHICH IS NOT TRUE AT ALL! But the only younger generation that knows the truth are the ones that have older brothers or sisters that grew up with his original look and told them about him :(.

Having reference's is diffidently a good idea :). Sometimes I can get pictures drawn a lot quicker with a reference here or there.Well, there a lot of human references out there. You are more than welcome to look at some of my human character's to get you started if you want:D.

Yesh i have that many, and every couple weeks or so i get MOAR :iconmoarplz:!!!

Yes diffidently :dummy:. If i ever used that much ink at my own home computer my parent's would KILL ME xD!!!

Have you been trollin and creeping on my reference book :icontrollinplz: xD ???? Actually, Speedio and Speedla is in my book of references :meow:. I put them in there for when i work on my half of our Art Trade THAT I STILL NEED TO DO xD!!!!

Yeah i know how you feel.
At first when i heard they were gonna make a new spyro game i got hyped, i thought they were gonna bring the old look. Then my hopes got brought down as soon as i seen the "new" spyro.

The younger generation is definatly gonna miss out on the original great Spyro the Dragon. I feel mad just thinkin about it.

And thanx to you i already got like 20 reference photos already =D
Im gonna start getting a wide range of stuff so i can learn to draw many different styles lol.

And uh.....maybe.....(inner concious: "she knows!!!! our cover is blown, speedio play it smooth")
Of course not, but what half?! Crap do i owe you my half?!?!!?

I had that same reaction TILL i saw the NEW Spyro :(. Overall the game in general is not that bad ( i actually own it :) ) but i get mad and upset when i see Spyro look like that .

I just tell people if you want to play a REAL Spyro game, just play the first three and you'll look at all the other games IN SHAME :XD:!!

Oh that is so COOL! BUT It's going to take A LOT of reference photos to beat ME!! HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!!Now you know how i can learn to draw different styles so quickly ^_-.

Actually you asked to do an art trade with me i think around Octoberish :iconxd--plz:. I can look through my past journals to show you.Don't worry i honestly still never started my half yet either, BUT after a couple months i got an idea BUT i got a question. What is your FAVORITE VIDEO GAME AND SYSTEM OF ALL TIME???? This will help me with my half, I'm not telling you anything else xD.

I'll have to look up what you owe me, because i honestly don't know but I'll let you know when i figure it out. You don't have to rush to get it done, I'm pretty patient with that kind of stuff. You can get it done when you get the chance, i can wait ^^.

Now if you excuse me.....
I KNOW HAVE TO LOOK THROUGH ME PAST JOURNALS TO SOLVE THIS DILEMMA ON WHO WAS YOU SUPPOSED TO DOODLE FOR MEH!!!XDDDDDDD

Really? Is it good, I just might plan on getting it some day then. lol

But im sure i do! But one day!!! ONE DAY DESTINY I WILL SURPASS YOUR COLLECTION OF REFERENCES HAHAHAHAHAAHH!!
lol

Wow october, im so sorry i not only forgot, but i haven't even thought about it! Im so sorry.

but my favorite video game.....wow that's a tough decision for real.
Uh....Super Smash Bros. Brawl i guess, either that or Sonic Generations

But my all time favorite system, is the gamecube, its got all the classics, and it was my first system. Im just really confused on why you asked.

And i looked up the Art Trade
"you draws Speedio and Speedla in a brother-sister pic, I draw Mirage and Serenity in a best friend kind of pic."
That's what it was, but if you wanna change it then we can! =D
Its up to you

Skylander's is a pretty decent game, the only problem is that it can get expensive buying the little character's. But as long as you get one of each element, you don't have to buy the others unless you want to completely 100% beat the game which is what I'm trying to do :).BUT THEY KEEP GETTING SOLD OUT SO FAST ITS DIFFICULT TO FIND THEM!!!!

NU YOU WON'T:iconraegplz: I WILL SO BYPASS YOU SO MUCH THAT THERE IS NO WAY FOR YOU TO CATCH UP TO MEH!!!!! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!

It's alright. I forgot about our AT to till just recently xD.

That's a secret. I'm not telling you that:dummy: He He He.......WHAT? IS IT NOT OKAY TO ASK RANDOM QUESTIONS AND CREEP ON MY FRIENDS ONCE IN A WHILE :iconxd--plz:

I'll still keep my idea to you of our Art Trade, i don't want to change anything :D. Whenever you get the opportunity to of course :meow:.I have your part of the Art Trade idea still fresh in my mind so I'll probably get working on it soon since i FINALLY HAVE AN IDEA xD!!!
