Spyro + Sparx: All Grown Up by nicholaskole Spyro + Sparx: All Grown Up by nicholaskole
“Looks like we’ve still got some things to do after all, old friend.” 

Dragons may age differently than Dragonflies, but best friends always stick together 🐉🐝

Spyro & Sparx, all grown up! Spyro took up with the balloonists to see the worlds. This is Unofficial fanart in the Official style! 
I saw a few interpretations of Elder Dragon Spyro floating around online (and of course the original from the old manual, which I referenced for this piece) and I had to try my hand! Drawing while my wife plays The Reignited Trilogy and having a great time- they’re actually like…really still fun to play :)))

I do NOT like how the dragons become bipedal when they grow up. Never did.

This is awesome Artwork, though I think it would be funnier if the Year of the Dragon credits showed the Baby Dragons getting older and bigger than Spyro but Spyro is stuck being a Little Kid Dragon for the rest of his life.

AHH this sort of thing would be so cool to see in a cutscene! God I remember dreaming up what adult spyro would look like based on that one single image on the back of the game case way back in the day :"D 

I love your rendition! The way you give the elder dragons accessories works really well! Plus it's always a joy to just look at the pretty colors in your work ahhh.

Aww I love this!!! You did a wonderful job on the dragon concepts, how each one is unique and full of personality. Thank you for your amazing work. Maybe I'll get my hands on Reignited one day, but until then I'll continue enjoying the original games. :)

Oh my gosh, old man (or is it fly?) Sparx is adorable! Spyro still looks like himself, and yeah, it’d totally make sense that he’d get a bit of a wanderlust after journeying everywhere.
