Spyro: Year of the Dragon - Crystal Islands by Gewalgon Spyro: Year of the Dragon - Crystal Islands by Gewalgon
This is my first fanart of Spyro. He is one of my beloved childhood-companions ^.=.^
Last weekend I played the third part of the "Spyro the dragon" series on Playstation 1, "the year of the dragon" & was inspiried to draw the Crystal Islands (More on spyro.wikia -> spyro.wikia.com/wiki/Crystal_I…)
:iconoldspyroplz:
Spyro the dragon FTW! :la:

I hope you like it!

Nice work here. The colors used on the picture are amazing and the technique are amazing. The shadows and lights of the picture are just excellent. I can say that the drawing it's very original on the design. Something great on the pic is the moon, the texture is just perfect, and the crystals looks amazing. You could used another lighting effect for Sparx, but still like it.
Another thing that is amazing is the sky, the stars and teh galaxy details just fits great and looks very realistic.
Something wrong are the stars behind the dark side of the moon, it should be a shadow, but still great.

Hallo erstmal =3

Also ich finde dein Bild echt Supi!Ich habe das Spiel zwar selbst noch nicht gespielt(leider:()Aber es berührt mich *_*

Farben:
Da kann man nichts sagen du arbeitest wirklich gut mit ihnen wenn ich mir mal denn Kristall ganz rechts ansehe dort wo er herauskguckt muss ih shon echt sagen gut verlaufen.Spyros Farben sind auch super besonders die Flügel gefallen mir =3 Auch der Hintergrund hat sehr viel psotives!

Atonomie:
An denn Hinterbeinen on Spyro müstest du noch etwas arbeiten da stimmt die Atomonie nicht ganz und die Pfoten könnten krallen vertragen,auch musst du etwas die Schultern ausarbeiten.

Mond:
Er ist wirklich schön auch wenn er etwas krumm ist =3Ob er im orginalen Level auch so groß ist weis ich nicht ;)

Kristalle:
Sind sehr gut gelungen,du hast nicht ganz Farbe reingebracht damit sie etwas durchsitig wirken,ich finde es wirklich echt gut!

All in one:
Really good picture,but you must work on the behind leg from Spyro and on the paws,the colors are perfect and i found it a really romantic Picture *____*

5/5 Stars -^.^-

Was ich nur schade finde, ist dass das Bild so lang gezogen wird. Wenn du magst könnt ich mal (Wenn ich Zeit dazu finde) versuchen einen zugeschnittenen Header für dich zu machen, dann sieht es nicht mehr so ausgelutscht aus xD (Diese Antwort kam jetzt spät weil ich in der Zwischenzeit im Krankenhaus gelandet bin -.- RIP Blinddarm xD)

Never seriously played any of the Spyro games. Now I'm planning to do a marathon and you're part of the reason. This has to be one of the best pieces on Spyro out there.

OOOH. GOD. THE FEELS. I played this game so many years ago. Is this the last level of the game? It's where you unlock doors with the eggs... Loved that game so much <3.
And the drawing's really cute!

Ehrlich gesagt kann ich mich nicht mehr genau daran erinnern, auch wenn ich es erst vor kurzem gespielt habe xD
Aber es war auf jeden Fall ein Level in der letzten Welt. Und ich fand dass es das schönste von allen war im dritten Teil :la:

Stimmt! Nicht war? Meine playstaytion 1 hat leider kein Fernseher mehr dabei, sonst würde ich es gerne noch mal durchspielen. Ich habe es zum ersten mal in Schweden ausprobiert. Ich war gast bei Freunde von meinen Eltern, und die hatten eben Kinder, die so gerne mit videogames spielten.

Ausserdem, ich wollte schon vorhehr fragen, aus welchem Teil von Deutschland kommst du denn? :9
Mein Vater ist von Niedersachsen, aber ich lebe momentan in der Schweiz, wegen meiner Mutter.

I love it. The Crystal Islands is one place I wish I could go in video games. But then so is Midgar (FFVII), Columbia (Bioshock Infinite), Hyrule (Legend of Zelda), and Silent Hill just to name a few.
