Spyro The Dragon: Bubba by nicholaskole Spyro The Dragon: Bubba by nicholaskole
SMASH THEM, SPYRO!
It's official- I've been working on character design work for the upcoming Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, and this here design of Bubba the elder dragon is the first officially released piece of concept art I did!
Of all the Spyro character design, the elder dragons were some of the most fun! Bubba is a big ol burly fellow- a video of him animating in the game was also released here: Stefano Pinna [4:08 AM]

 Spyro Reignited Trilogy will be our September 1st- I can’t wait to get to play it all through myself :))

O_O I would love to pick your brain about some of the designs of certain characters some time. 
That might sound condescending but I swear i didn't mean it like that. I would just love to know the thought process that went into some of the character designs and changes.

Awesome work on Bubba. I've been really digging his new look over his original one. I can't wait for the game to come out this September.

BTW, any idea on who's voicing Bubba in RT?

Big Burly Bubba was one of my favourite dragons to rescue as a kid, so I was really happy to see him in that little snippet animation <3
You did a really nice job with taking his original body proportions and dialing them up to eleven :D Gotta love his kidney belt too - strongman features!

Bubba has become an Ensemble Darkhorse.

I can definitely say you did a great job with the character designs for the Elders.

Do you have any concept art of The Sorceress?

I love his design, and one of the things I already love about Spyro reignited is how much personality the Elder dragons have, and Bubba is one of my favorites already.

Great stylized shapes and all around nice looking design!
I should really study your art works; they are cartoony, 3-dimensial looking, exaggerated in a lively and dynamic way I truly wish to achieve as well some day..!
You have an inspiring gallery.
