Spyro by Cameo647 Spyro by Cameo647
Been in a Spyro mood lately with the remaster coming out next month!

I have been wanting to draw Spyro for a long time now, especially since the announcement of the remaster. I was debating on posting this but I decided it wouldn't hurt :D


So I decided to take a short break from commissions and doodle this out, which turned into a fully colored image. I have to say I am supper happy with how this came out! A lot of it was experimental in the shading and stuff, trying to up the quality of my art.

Hope you like it!

Enjoy!

Made in SAI

It's fantastic how good it looks in your style. The colors are so bright and eye catchy, really good choice. His smiling face is adorable.

Did you two have a nice chat? After Giants, I think Skylanders fizzled out. Nice drawing!

They make one every year and finished the 6th one, Imaginators. That was two years ago. I'm starting to wonder if they stopped it...

FFFFF XD I have been torched in the past, specially when the Spyro style was on its hay day.

I must admit that the games look appealing but for some reason I like the Skylanders Spyro better than the original (fff you'll kill me XDD) but seeing the remaster might change that, the original is kind of too cute for me.

Aww yeah, it's always good to hear from you as well.

Oh I remember those days, back when the fandom was huge. It's still huge now, but it seemed to have died down some. Not as active as is use to be back in the day.

But I see, I am not a fan of the Skylanders Spyro, being I grew up with the classic version. but it's nothing to kill you over xD everyone has their preferences :D But yes the remastered Spyro model looks adorable and everything about the game looks good so far.

I liked some of them, the style wasn't bad, but I got tired of people comparing Raz to Spyro and even telling me to draw the style lol. A lot of people left the fandom, others just moved onto nother fandoms that were popular afterwards, like My Little Pony. 

Skylander's Spyro is ugly, but he's got some kind of charm, I actually like his look despite of that XD

Oh trust me, I had those moments as well back then. People told me Diamond as a Cynder "rip off" and I would get notes where people were trying to get that knifes edge in me by calling Diamond names and so on. I was also accused of "ripping off" Casf's style at the time (which in reality, everyone learns from someone else before forming their own style). My art even today still gets called Spyro style and Diamond being called a "ripped off Cynder" xD Which honestly, led to Diamond's disappearance from dA for the past 3 years now. She has been redesigned due to it as well sadly :(

But I feel the same way though. A lot of artists left the fandom due to this or moved on from it.

Yeah the Skylanders Spyro does look ugly but I do admit, he does have a charm to him that makes him stand out. Something had to stand out on him xD

Awwww there wasn't anything bad with the style, I liked it a lot but it was all over, everywhere and was kind of exhausting to see it and also because if you drew something different, yeah, people would come and say that you should draw it, or if you drew it, it would be called a rip off XD, they didn't seem to make their minds. I got my first style from Danny Phantom, I was in love with Dora XDDD I wanted to create my own character in the style, though Raz wasn't meant to be my character at first, I just created him for some reason and kept drawing him until he ended up as my sona LOL, but since he was purple, was enough reason for me to get comments saying that he looked like Spyro, funny thing is that when I joined DA, I had no idea of who Spyro was XD I had seen him before but didn't know his name and I always thought he was from the Starfox franchise...  I think I even talked to Casf before she was all popular and stuff, she was talkative as far as I remember, but everyone having the same style, kind of made me lose faith in drawing dragons at the time, because unless you drew it, you wouldn't get attention at all and I joined the Danny Phantom dragon fever when it was already coming to an end (after the series got canceled).

It's good to find a style to start with and wether you based yours on Casfs it wasn't bad, I honestly liked yours more (I actually like her old style better than the new one, got too realistic to my taste) I always like a toony or unrealistic style better than an extremely (and maybe generic) ultra realistic.

XD he looks like a mix of dragon with a Gremlin or Chucky from Child's Play XD but yeah, if I were to draw Spyro, I'd take a lot from that design.

Yeah so there was no happy middle, no matter what you did xD It was everywhere and after awhile, it got boring to look at because it was all the same style with very little difference to it. Kinda why I'm happy my style still remains different from the now popular semi - realistic style that's been going around. It's a shame how you have to be drawing what's popular jut to get noticed.

But ah ok, I remember you had a Danny Phantom phase xD which I liked. It was different from everything you saw on dA at the time. But the same thing happened to Diamond as well. She kinda just appeared one day and now she's my sona LOL And yeah, seems like any purple dragon is "Spyro" related xD Diamond was called a Cynder "look alike" because of her horns and the diamonds she use to have on her scales at the time. As if she is the only dragoness that has ever had that horn style xD

Well that's how you learn. You have to base your drawings off something before you can begin to get your own style. Every artist has done it one point in their life, wither it was from Disney or another artist. But yes, I will admit, my style was based off hers at the time because it was something I liked. I prefer more of a cartoon look myself as well, being its more fun to play with and you can push expressions a bit more. But that's my opinion xD I like the semi - realistic style, but it's just not for me personally as a style.

Yeah xD to me he looks like a mutated Chihuahua dog xD But I see. I think it would be interesting to see what he looked like if you drew him.
