Spyro Reignited: Spyro The Dragon

By nicholaskole

Spyro the dragon himself! I got to be part of the process of redesigning the purple boi for the Reignited Trilogy I was so honored to have any part in bringing a childhood icon back to life. I tried to pull inspiration for a few expressions directly from screenshots in the old games to make sure his personality came thru just right! I'm so delighted with the final result- It's a Spyro I think the whole team is proud of :)

Spyro is one of my favourite dragons.

I'm happy you have finally 'made it big'. Every time I were ready to play a game you participated in creation of... it just went dark. Copernicus and Dawngate being probably the most vibrant examples.

I'm still in awe of your Ljosalfar concepts. I hope one day you will get to draw them once again.

Best wishes.

P.S. Spyro Reignated is top notch. Superb really.

All I can think of after playing the remastered version, is Spongebob Squarepants when I see Purple boi here.

Ugh, love love love my purple boi! You did a great job on capturing his essence and personality. I wish you kept his back ridges yellow but that's just preference maybe. ;) These concept drawings are so great!!!

That's amazing you got to be involved with the game itself!

Thanks for helping bring Spyro back to life too, I implore you to urge Activision & Toys For Bob to make an animated series using the game engine and art direction. The game is like watching a Pixar/DWA quality production.

Excuse me, but can you do the Reignited fauns from Fracture Hills, please? They're my favorite!
