Im so fucking tired of seeing works reposted everywhere without a goddamn link to the source. Watermark, even if its a bit late, maybe I can prevent it from being stolen from here again.

YAY HD UBER ARTISAN WORLD RENDER IT TOOK ME WEEKS TO RENDER IT PROPERLY so I ended up hating it cuz of the time spent to collaborate with Maya and get over its moody phases but it gives me nostalgic vibes so I kinda love it too and I could just lie on the floor and cry about my childhood and stuff
God I need to shut up
Everything modeled/rendered/done by me I-I think
Maya, Mental Ray and photossssssssshop


you can look at the spyro model used in this render here --> Spyro 3d model WIP (UPDATED version)

I finally find the original source to this image and learn who the talented artist is!
(Awe man... i see there is a Spyro 3d model viewer......only to see it doesnt work :< guess I'm way too late to the party.)
Goophou Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
that spyro model was pretty ugly and outdated, I made a new one (months ago) but I'm not really satisfied with it, so it's an endless loop of misery and spyro models being recycled :')

I finally found it! The improper credit EVERY FUCKING 'news'-website is giving is infuriating, and if that wasn't enough, google doesn't even find your's when reverse-image searching.
Especially with the Remake being announced the amout of no-credit-'reposts' is ridiculous and I can't believe that seemingly every 'reporter' is 1.: taking your amazing work for granted and 2.: using it even though it's obviously not the remake (and btw looks way better than what TFB did)

Sorry for the rant, I guess I'm using this comment as a vent right now...
Goophou Featured By Owner May 16, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
pfff don't worry, ofc I'ma as mad as you are about credits and reposting. Thankfully some nice DA users / friends on fb have been helping me for a while, asking to put proper credits on those reposts, but well, I'm a bit tired now and I've learned a lesson.

Thanks for the nice comment tho :)

I took me so damn long to find this even through reverse image search. Beautiful artwork, my dude.
Goophou Featured By Owner May 16, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, there are way too many clones of this image going around on the Internet.
thanks a lot!

The model link is broken. Could you fix it?
Goophou Featured By Owner May 16, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The quality of that model is far below my actual standards, I'm remaking it!
BinaryByte Featured By Owner May 16, 2018
When you remake it, will it be downloadable or?

Miss this game! Wanted to teach my kid how to play it, but PS4 isn't backwards compatible.
vanizorc Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2018
Nostalgia!! Spyro was the very first game I got on PS1. Played it countless times until the very end, and even then did several of those "Easter Egg" missions with hidden passages. One of the games that defined my childhood growing up in the 1990s, aside from Pokémon on Gameboy of course :) (Smile) 
Nenesheep Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
I hate to say it but some fake nintendo account is spreading around your image without the watermark like a bunch of assholes twitter takes theft seriously so if you report them they should so something bout it…

Imagine if they made a remake and these were the graphics
ChakaZG Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2018
It's funny because they are supposedly officially announcing the trilogy this month.

Anyway, I know about this picture for a few years now (actually, weren't there a few more?), I'm glad I found the OG author. Thumbs Up 
ZephyrLightningheart Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2017
This is simply stunning! Glad to find the OG source! This game is my all time fave so many memories of each level! Rip Toasty them dogs freaked me out.

You did a great job of drawing the artisans home hub. I love the detail you did on SPyro. The amount of detail in this drawing is amazing, you should feel proud of yourself. I really hope the Spyro remakes look good as this. 
Joki-Art Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2017  Student Digital Artist
It sucks that it has been stolen as much as it has. I saw this pop up everywhere lately and I actually knew it was yours. It was a while since I favorited this. It's still such a stunning piece of work and you should be very proud of this. As for the Spyro remake hype, I really hope it'll happen and that it looks as awesome as this! Keep up the great work.
SuperMarioFan65 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2017  Student Digital Artist
I hope the Spyro Remasters will look like this. ^^

What a beautiful piece, I especially love the bold lighting and the warm colors!  I'm so sorry that your work has been stolen so many times.  :(

Hey Goophou you can make a unique watermark to protect your work from being stolen again, I made
a video tutorial for artists who wanted to protect their work back when I was part of DAPF:…

   1 Of The people that stole this and put this on a website that I do not remember called this Spyro Remastered.  And a remaster is when they just make the same graphics displayed in better quality.

The picture is beautiful! If you give me your consent... Can I use your image to a thumbnail of a video? I always put the link where I got the picture. If you do not give me, I understand. It's a wonderful image.

This is very nice! Do you think you can make one for Dark Passage?

I absolutely think this is a masterpiece! I'm a die hard Spyro fan and have been since the day it came out. This is a beautiful and stunning remake. Everything looks so bright and alive! Spyro seriously looks bad ass, he looks very well detailed and dragony!. Everything looks so perfect i love it! Keep up the good work!

I would SOOOOOOO love to see this! :D
Mistabeans Featured By Owner May 18, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have an idea.. What do you think of just putting your signature/link on the picture? And to make sure it's not just cropped out, near the center of the picture? You could even sort of work it in to the picture itself so that it's not obstrusive nor too..blended in..?
Mistabeans Featured By Owner May 18, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Really great pic btw!!! Breathtaking!
Wraith3d Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I saw this posted on FB... Luckily, your friend Mercedes Kemp was kind enough to point out that it was your work and provided a link to it here.
This is amazing work, btw! I really enjoyed the original game back in the day, and this is a beautiful re-imagination of what it could be with today's tech.
I would love it even more if it got ported to the PC, since I don't have any consoles anymore...

Great job!
Goophou Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thank you!
And yes I've already thanked her too.
GlowingEyeFiasco Featured By Owner Edited Mar 25, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I just noticed something. This video…
appeared recently and your render and theirs look uncannily alike? I wonder what's the story behind such a resemble o: I am legitimately curious. My only guess is that their render was perhaps inspired by yours but still made from scratch, but i really wonder nonetheless. What are your thoughts, Goophou?
Goophou Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well they do look alike, and they might have been inspired by my own render....but somehow I guess it's just some sort of linear workflow. I mean, take spyro's graphics and power them up, and that's what you get. There would be much of a difference if some sort of personal style was embedded into the world and its appearance, but as long as you stick with the "hq" version of the place, you don't really have a lot of options.
I can still see that they made different choices when it comes to some things (like the diamond tips on the columns where the labyrinth is), but for sure, they made stuff from scratch and I didn't take part in it at all. 
Interesting project though. 
I could give another world a try and see if they reproduce that one too, then we'd know for sure that they took ispiration from my works : D
GlowingEyeFiasco Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
oh that would be too much work, and would be worth doing if you really want to know if they were inspired by your works or not and if you are kind of irked by the fact they they were inspired perhaps too much. Though I say making a whole new one just to do that sounds a bit stressful. Plus you're right, there are more differences between the two than I initially took notice of! Well, i hope it's alright that i brought it to your attention nonetheless. For one it's just nice to know that more people do these things :D

I did wonder there for a bit if that was perhaps some unrefined YT account of yours, but you confirmed it's not :p

Yeah the project is amazing! They didn't say they would make more, which is fine, but if they would ever have the opportunity and desire to make something more like that then seeing them someday make some other levels would be a feast for the eyes. Same if you did any more in the future, everyone would also have a pretty large feast :P but I'm not implying anything! Just saying that your render is great :thumbsup: I did never end up saying that now did i, hehe.

Wow, that is completely jaw dropping! :wow:

Heh, I'm starting to imagine the trouble you mentioned about the rendering process, I think it paid off personally. You and your friends have done a smashing job with this Spyro picture! :D
