Spyro Reignited Trilogy: Ripto by nicholaskole Spyro Reignited Trilogy: Ripto by nicholaskole
Cool news! My redesign of Spyro’s nemesis Ripto is out in the wild and I can share a little more Spyro work with you good folks :) I was super honored to get to take a swing at this little orange jerk.
The overall cast of the Spyro trilogy was such a creative and wild collection of ideas- translating their playful energy to something with a lot more polygons was a really fun, and occasionally quite challenging, exercise. Ripto was a breeze though- what’s not to love about a villainous Dino with a natty coat?

You know now after I've started playing Reignited Trilogy and occasionally come back to watch these concept arts, I've started to think that you might have more than just a power of being a good artist...
Like, I've seen the fandom go crazy in love with these new character designs!
And considering Ripto is just a very small angry man, with a horn sticking right up from his head, and you managed to actually make a character like that very pleasing to the eye, and make fangirls go nuts... And let's not even talk about the elder dragons!

You are a scary, powerful man, mister nicholas, and I don't know if it's safe to let you do this to our community anymore. :D

Spyro was my childhood, and Ripto was my favorite character !
I find his new design SO COOL and BADASS !
He looks soo much more intimidating, you did a very very good job, thank you a lot !

Ripto is easily one of my favourite new designs, and it was good to have Gregg Berger doing his voice again!

i love the slit eye approach to him, actually gives him a bit more character imo (coming from someone who never played any of the spyro games

Ripto definitely looks a lot more evil now than in the original Spyro titles.

I so appreciate the look you gave Ripto, he looks so much more sinister and unique now. The bit of scarring on his lip was a neat addition.

Wait wait wait - you helped on the game??? Dude, hella props for that!!! I’ve seen some clips. I’m glad that it’s getting remastered - I’ve been trying to get my PS2 fixed so I can’t play Ripto’s Rage and Year Of The Dragon again (I don’t have the first game - and unfortunately won’t be able to play the Reignited Trilogy since I cant afford a console for it). I’m really hoping a YouTuber I watch will play it; anyways, this looks great!! I think you really captured Ripto’s character in that look.

Hey, I was watching a clip of the Reignited Trilogy for Ripto's Rage, and I noticed they used this design for Ripto's flags!

I owned a copy of Ripto's Rage when I was younger for my PS1. He's one of my favorite Spyro villains. This looks magnificent.

I don't care about steelbooks as extras but I'd dig if the concept art would be either an unlockable in-game or if there would be a Reignited Trilogy artbook go on sale. I'd by that in an instant. That alongside with a music album of the soundtrack would make the best collectors edition for me. Very nice art. X3

LOL I just kinda shrugged it off, but was weirded out that they got off on that shit LOL I mean I find it freaking HILARIOUS if a character throws up in certain situations... some of my favorite childhood stories were inopportune times that I threw up as a kid... like when everybody at my mom's church gave me a doughnut, or the time I hate an entire basket full of Easter candy or the time my mom flipped her shit because I ate a red crayon as a kid and she thought I was bleeding into my stomach! xD

LMFAO She rushed me into the emergency room, saying I was shitting and puking blood and the doctor took one look at the diaper, and said "Ma'am... that's a red crayon." She was so red with embarassment LOL

If the Reignited Trilogy has some sort of Gallery or Extras mode, this artwork for Ripto should DEFINITELY be in it! This is a PERFECT way to pave the way for the game! The hype is real! Great job! b(^^)d
