This is an art trade I did with :iconxflowerstarx: for her love of Spyro the Dragon's original Playstation trilogy games. This is my art trade for her, a nice image from the first game of Spyro and Deblin together by the waterfall. It's not really any particular scene from the game but I thought it looked nice regardless. It was tricky to make the scales on the dragons without having to do it physically so I found a nice shortcut in SAI. I think it came out looking very good.


Spyro the Dragon is now owned by... not sure but the original games were developed by Insomniac games for Sony of America.

Who would win in a death battle between two heroic dragons?

:iconoldspyroplz: - a small, cute and fiesty purple dragon with a fiery attitude and stubbornness who protects the Dragon Realms, Avalar, Forgotten Worlds and other worlds on a daily basis.

Jake Long/American Dragon - the undesputed magical protector of New York City. Yet another hero who is cocky, arrogant and can smack talk to his enemies. Unlike Spyro, Jake can change between his human and dragon forms at his own free will.

Spyro Video Game Analysis

What more can be said about Spyro the Dragon? It's one of the most memorable video game franchises of all time and it's certainly the pinnacle of video game nostalgia. Today, we're gonna take a look at Spyro and everything about the games.

Origin: Spyro was concieved at the time the Playstation housed no kid friendly video games. Universal Interactive President Mark Cerny gave developer Insomniac Games the challenge to create a 3D game with interactive enemy AI. The original concept for the character Spyro was concieved by art directer Craig Stitz.

Gameplay: Each of the games had basic gameplay, you can breathe fire breath, you can charge and you can glide. Other abilities you can use are Hover, Superfly, Superflame, Supercharge, Glide, Missile Breath (only in Gulp's Overlook), Climb, Dive, Ice Breath, Headbash and Plasma Breath (only in Ripto's Arena). It doesn't get any more fun than that.

Acting: The games housed very well known voice actors.
Carlos Alazraqui as Spyro the Dragon / Useni / Marco / Hexus / Eldrid
Clancy Brown as Obasi / Revillo / Unika / Enzo / Maximos / Nestor / Titan / Boris
Michael Gough as Gnasty Gnorc / Sadiki / Claude / Cleetus / Bruno / Cyprin / Nevin / Astor
Jamie Alcroft as Lateef / Cosmos / Kosoko / Zane / Interviewer / Trondo / Oswin / Tomas
Michael Connor as Tomas / Gildas / Darius / Boldar / Dragons
André Sogliuzzo as Sparx the Dragonfly
Tony Salerno as Laser Gnorc, Jacques
Harvey Fierstein as Gnorc Cove Gnorc
Mark DeCarlo as Haunted Towers wizard

Voice Actors of Spyro 2: Gateway To Glimmer/Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!:

Tom Kenny as Spyro the Dragon, The Professor, the Electrolls from the Hurricos level/realm of Summer Forest and other minor characters
Andre Soqliuzzo as Sparx the Dragonfly and other characters

Melissa Disney as Elora the Faun, the Fauns from the Fracture Hills realm/level and other minor characters
Mary Linda Philips as Zoe the Fairy and other minor characters
Milton James as Moneybags and other minor characters
Marcelo Tubert as Basil the Explorer, Colossus Monks and other minor characters

Voice Cast of Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon:

Tom Kenny as Spyro the Dragon, Sgt. James Byrd and other minor characters
Andre Soqliuzzo as Sparx the Dragonfly and other minor characters
Pamela Hayden as Bianca the Rabbit and other minor characters
Gregg Berger as Hunter the Cheetah and other minor characters

Edita Brychta as Sheila the Kangaroo and other minor characters
Neil Ross as Moneybags, Bentley the Yeti and other minor characters
Richard Tatum as Agent 9 and other minor characters

Graphics: As far as Playstation games go, the graphics are very well done.

Skies: The games are also home to different kinds of skies.

Morning sun w/ clouds: Pink/blue/yellow green hills, warm grey stones, blue roofs.

Noon sky w/ clouds: Blue/white green hills, warm grey stone, green roofs.

Night sky w/ full moon: Blue/purple green hills, cold grey stones, warm interior.

Evening sky w/ mountains: orange/purple green grass, white plaster, red roofs.

Firery sunset: Red/orange/purple green grass, white plaster, red roofs.

Day moon w/ mountains: green/yellow/blue green grass, light grey rock, yellow bricks.

Plot: The plots consist of Spyro fighting against villains such as the Gnasty Gnorc, the Sorceress, Ripto, etc. as they attempt to bring harm to the rest of the dragons such as draining the lives out of dragon eggs, transforming the dragons into monsters, etc.

Characters:

Spyro: Spyro is known for being courageous and headstrong, and is also eager, stubborn and arrogant. He has an immutable sense of heroism, friendliness, and has a fiery personality. He has little concern for his own safety and is shown to be irresponsible at times, being extremely curious and hardly ever cautious, which could get him into trouble. Spyro gets into lots of mischief and is known to be cocky, a trait that can lead to his downfall.

Sparx: A dragonfly that acts as Spyro's heath meter and every time he gets hit, he changes colour starting from gold to blue, to green, and ultimately disappearing entirely. He has the same mischievous personality as Spyro, but he's very protective of him. Without Sparx by Spyro's side, he's susceptible to being killed or being defeated by a single hit. Sparx buzzes as his way of communication and the dragons somehow understands him by his reactions.

Hunter: Hunter is a laid-back, physically talented and somewhat gullible character. He's naive, cowardly and easily tricked and he's a loyal friend to Spyro. As implied by his name, he is a moderate archer and he is an expert skateboarder who becomes jealous when Spyro breaks his records.

Elora: An expert on the people of Avalar who has trusted Spyro to defeat Ripto. She is a strong leader and ashe always gives helpful advice.

Sheilla: She speaks with a smooth Austrailian acctent and is an easy-going kind of character. She is friendly to those she cares about yet she doesn't hold back when it comes to her enemies.
Agent 9: Agent 9 is incredibly trigger happy, and even gave his laser blaster a name ("Mr. Laser Blaster"). Along with being completely psychotic, he has an incredible disdain for Rhynocs, leading to his intense liking for killing them. Agent 9 always carries his laser blaster. He also loves to make his enemies dance by force using his blasters, as shown when he tried to show Spyro a "dancing bear"! The Year of the Dragon manual gave this as Agent 9's introduction:

"Don't monkey around with Agent 9 because he is one! Agent 9 is one of the Professor's lab monkeys. But after special treatment and training he is no ordinary chimp. Agent 9 is a highly intelligent special operative whose specialties are laser blasters and precision delivery of explosives."
Gnasty Gnorc: An ugly, bad-tempered, unintelligent, nasty gnorc who is self conscience about his appearance. He has resented the dragons ever since his banishment to the Dragon Junkyard and because of how they view his appearence.

Ripto: A small yet malicious villain. He seems to enjoy power for the sake of having it. He is fond of causing trouble and he intends to show that he is more than capable of causing destruction despite his small stature.

The Sorceress: An evil dinopotamous who attempted to murder baby dragons to create a potion to maintain her immortality. It's revealed that she banashed the dragons a thousand years prior to the events in Spyro: YotD (a reason for why hasn't been verified as of late). She is malicious and power-hungry and appears to fear death and Spyro (seeing him as a formidable foe)

Designs: The characters seem to follow a cutesy childish design, which is a good way to attract younger audiences.

Music: The music in the games is relaxing yet upbeat. They effectively suit the levels they appear in. The music for the first three games was composed by the drummer for The Police, Stewart Copeland. Through his composition, we've gained tracks that suited the atmosphere of the level (example, the Artisan's world of shepherds, sheep, medieval towers and endless green knolls has an oriental-sounding mixture of bells and drums whereas the Beast Makers' midnight swamp has a solid rhythm.)

Glitches: The original Spyro games also had its share of glitches.

Swimming in the air: If you perform a dash underwater and kill yourself upon getting out, the game will register the level as a water level and you'll be able to swim around the entire level.

Double jump: Can only be activated if you jump and dash at the same time (can only be found in Spyro 2)

But there's one infamous glitch, one that'll give you no choice but to start from scratch.

The Country Speedway glitch: If you choose to race the flying pigs, do not quit the race. If you do and you complete it afterwards, you will never recieve the dragon egg as a reward. This is only present on the original version of the game.

Final verdict: The original Spyro games are well construced games.They are still fun even to this day. If you plan to invest in the Playstation, make sure these games are in your collection.

Which of these esteemed professors would win in a death battle?

Professor Elvin Gadd - he made his first appearance in Luigi's Mansion where he helps Luigi find his brother, Mario, who is fiendishly kidnapped by King Boo and his ghastly henchmen by lending him a Poltergust 3000 and the Game Boy Horror. He finally made a long-awaited comeback in the sequel, Luigi's Mansion 2.

The Professor - originally voiced by Tom Kenny (who also voiced Spyro the Dragon, Sgt. James Byrd, the Electrolls from the realm, Hurricos, in Spyro 2: Gateway To Glimmer and countless minor characters in the original Spyro the Dragon series) and he first appeared in Spyro 2: Gateway To Glimmer, he assisted Spyro and Sparx in their many adventures with the use of gadgetry and portals.

Professor Antonio Utonium - he is regarded as the father of The Powerpuff Girls and creator. Along the way, he aided the girls in their various adventures with his scientific discoveries and inventions. Unlike the other two professors, he created his inventions by accident.

This is my Fanfiction Progression Meme which shows my Fanfiction hobby spanning 8 years (and counting). I made it in Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit). Not to toot my own horn or anything but I'm definitely making a lot of progress throughout the years. I'm just comparing my writing style which I had back in 2005 when I first started writing fanfictions as a hobby to my current writing style. As you can see, they had drastically changed and improved throughout the years. It's like as if I went on a rollercoaster ride, going from one fanfiction to another.

A deleted scene from my :iconoldspyroplz::iconeloraplz: fanfiction, "Sea, Sun and Sickness", will be the next piece of writing in the pipeline. Unfortunately, this particular deleted scene didn't make it in the story so it had been cancelled.

On the left is my writing style from 2005 and on the right is my current writing style. My 2005 writing style is less detailed and my current writing style is descriptive, detailed, dynamic and beautifully written. On a related note, in the left screenshot is my first Mario fanfiction and first fanfiction in general, "A Mario Birthday Party", and within the right screenshot is the deleted scene of my :iconoldspyroplz: x :iconeloraplz: fanfiction, "Sea, Sun and Sickness", which I'm currently working on.

Commision for :iconxflowerstarx:

Two dragons, two heroes, an unlikely duo. From strangers to best friends. One from Dragon Realms, the other from New York City. Can they stop Ripto or not? Here's link for the story [link].

This is an Easter Egg which only works if you attempt to block the NPC's (Non-playable Character) way which ensues them to say things you normally wouldn't expect them to. However, this doesn't work on everyone. It will only work on Bartholomew, who is Bentley's little brother, and the female pandas from the Bamboo Terrace. Though, trying to block the pandas' way is much tougher than doing the same to Bartholomew. I discovered this Easter Egg by accident when I thought that Bartholomew is following me. It's definitely worth giving this a try for a laugh.

Also, this Easter Egg will only occur if you start the whole game from scratch on a new file. When you're at the beginning of Bentley's Outpost for instance, walk towards Bartholomew and talk to him. He asks you to break the boulder which is blocking the doorway. When you destroy it, proceed to the next area but don't walk through the doorway entirely. Turn around and you should see him standing on one of the steps behind you. Go over and talk to him and he'll tell you to move out of his way since he is supposed to be moving ahead of you.

Request by :iconxflowerstarx:.

It's The Powerpuff Girls: Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles with Spyro and Sparx. I love Spyros face, he's all like:"Some days I just hate being popular".

Some extra: In Finnish Powerpuff Girls is called Tehotytöt and their names are Pipa (Bubbles), Papu (Blossom) and Poppana (Buttercup).
