Reignite by SeaSaltShrimp Reignite by SeaSaltShrimp
Please don't watch me for Spyro art, as that surely won't be a recurring thing.  And friendly reminder that just because there is a Spyro in my gallery does NOT make me a Spyro artist, and that does NOT make my dragon characters Spyro OCs, please know the difference between a random cartoon dragon and Spyro.



I can feel my old watchers staring at me in a weird way. The remastered trilogy got me so hyped that I'm breaking my promise to never post a Spyro thing on my dA ever again :)  I'm literally scared to post this and I hope I don't regret it, but hey I like playing risky. Again please, don't watch me for Spyro art.

The TloS fandom days left a very sour taste in my mouth with a bowl of anxiety on the side, and I may avoid its fanbase like the plague today for my own reasons, but Classic Spyro is and always will be my childhood hero and nothing can change that :heart: Seeing him in HQ is a childhood dream come true and it reignited the love for this little guy.

From the small footage we got so far there are SO many things that as a child I always dreamed of seeing in a Spyro game, and it's finally a thing. The new fire, improved graphics, how expressive he is, and I can't ever stop praising that running animation. I MEAN GHJKLM???FGHJLK twitter.com/twitter/statuses/9… (first thing I thought is how much he looks like a hunting lion here)

I so can't wait until we get footage of Spyro 2 (my fave) and see what the swimmable water looks like :) and the character redesigns. It's awesome to see everyone looking forward to a Spyro game again. It was a bit nostalgic to draw a pic of him for the first time in 6+ years.





















(I'm still worthless at drawing Sparx)

Your old page with all the spyro art work was the first ever page I found on DA.
Its how I got onto DA. So seeing a piece of Spyro art work from you again really take me back

This is amazing! ^ ^ I love how Spyro came out! :)

Omg! Dude I so relate on this! When people favorite my characters, one of them for example. They think its Spyro related.... Or my own OF which is Cnder, they think its the same character from Spyro. When reality there is a difference and species are not the same. So I know how you feel on this!

I might watch you, and its coool you don't do Spyro. ^ ^ I just came across your artwork.

This is awesome ! I love your depiction of his new design ! He looks so expressive and...cute ! 'Toys for Bob' did a great job designing him, and you did a great job drawing him. 

Maintenant, je me demande qui sera sa VF parce que c'est avec elle que j'ai grandi (et toi aussi logiquement ^^) Vont ils reprendre son doubleur d'origine ? Je ne sais pas trop parce qu'il est introuvable sur le net malgré toutes mes recherches... Mais bon, il y a de l'espoir parce qu'ils ont repris Tom Kenny dans la VO. 

Sinon, je t'ai connue grâce à ta BD TLoS, et même à ce moment là je te suivais plus pour la qualité de tes dessins que pour Spyro.

Look at those scale textures! Either a well practiced trick or long and hard labour.


Sorry to hear that the fandom got so shifty. I tend to distance myself from fandom for that reason alone.
For what it's worth, I remember seeing parts of a certain comic years and years ago, and I lived it to bits. <3

I'm so excited for the trilogy, too :D The first Spyro game was my first game for the good old Playstation 1. I've been playing it now and then ever since! I just love it :la: And since maybe around 6 years ago I started to dream about a remastered version. I even made a school project about it xD
And then when the remastered Crash was revealed, I just thought "Spyro is next, OMG! :la:". And now, here it is finally :D Can't wait!

He is fine, I am glad for you, because you are so nice with the new update for Spyro in those games. And congratulations! your old hero of your childhood is again, present in your life. 

I hope that your fans is okay with your comment.

I like more Skye than spyro ^_^'. And I am confuse, meh, I like a lot the two. And your other characters and drawings. I really wanted to talk more with you more than to see your art simply, but like it's so difficult, :/ I am here with patient.

tbh your art has improved so much in the time I've been following you here, I don't think your characters look like spyro "ocs" at all but idk that's just me. I guess maybe some people just have this dragon=spyro thing in their head.
I have a purple dragon character and anytime someone says "wow he's like spyro!" I die a little inside :///// 

anyway that all aside IM SO EXCITED FOR THE REMASTER I literally cried watching the trailer and I'm just lsdkahfsladg I'm so ready omg, he was my whole childhood <3333 :) :) :)

Spyro was my favourite game on the PS1, and I have fond memories playing it either with my cousins or in my own spare time. Let's hope this 4th reboot doesn't turn out as bad as other recent reboots (Ghostbusters and Powerpuff Girls anybody).

Holy crap this looks amazing! (Especially those scales. wow, they must've taken forever)

And I'm also very happy that a remaster is coming out (remaster? Remake? I don't know terminology). I may not have the same connection with the games as many others, but seeing so many people be happy makes me happy. Plus, who doesn't want a remastered dragon with all the updated graphics?

So yeah, this looks really awesome and I'm also very excited for the game(s)!

There’s been a void in my heart thinking Spyro would die with the Skylanders. I am very hyped as well, I already had my boyfriend (who works at GameStop) preorder it for me for its release day ;v;

I've always wanted to ask

cause I don't think I've had a fandom ruin something for me(yet)
Did your terrible old fans change how you view the TLOS games? I know a lot people are like 'separate the fandom from the game' but honestly I could totes see not being able to enjoy and game or show if people ruined it.

I don't judge a game based on the fandom, it did push me away from posting anything related to TloS, but I still enjoyed the games for some time. If I don't like TloS anymore today it's pretty much due to just me losing interest on my own
