If 'passion' were dragon magic...
Well! Where to begin? Firstly please let me offer a tremendous and heartfelt 'THANKYOU' to absolutely everybody who has visited, commented on the art, and has made their presence (and their love for Spyro and TLoS) well known here! I've always been aware of the strong fan following that TLoS has enjoyed, yet I stand in awe of the passion. I marvel at the intelligence and devotion with which this fandom (this wonderfully diverse and dedicated fandom) has embraced it, and by extension me. The multitude of comments that has flooded in like some vast stream of consciousness is both beautiful and overwhelming. The questions and expressions of curiosity are equally rich and abundant, and I welcome and read each one... please know that if you are as yet unanswered - I have not forgotten you. 'Prepared' certainly isn't the word, but in time I will get around to answering each fan and all I possibly can; only please bear with me as the response has been... quite simply remarkable. With such unshakable devotion TLoS will endure for many long years! I'm truly humbled by your response and extremely grateful to everyone
So here's what's on the cards: there seems to be a fair amount of interest in the dragon breath/magic weapons, specifically Aether and Dark Aether, as well as a desire to hear explained Spyro's Dark tainted state and how this affects Aether. As the people have asked, I've answered what I can in the comments section pertaining to my avatar icon (which if you missed it is represented as the Aether glyph), but to make the information more visible I'll offer something specific on all of that when next I post. That and a fresh batch of game art from the development phase on TLoS is in store as soon as I can!
You've been fantastic: if your 'passion' were Dragon magic, it would certainly overcome any power wielded by the Purple dragon! So thankyou all, each and every one of you. Thankyou for passion and patience, thankyou for kindness, (especially with eachother) and thankyou for coming along for the ride.
It's wonderful to share the road with you all
A new beginning...
Hey There. I first played Dawn of the Dragon on XBOX 360 a Few Years ago, and i really Liked that game since it really sparked my interest on Spyro and Cynder and I Ship both of them like many fans out there, If The Trilogy was Remade into like a Zack Snyder Style-Like Series (I love Batman v Superman and Man of Steel and Cannot wait for his cut of Justice League) with it's Similar Tone & Color Palette, that would be Awesome..!
Hiii damn this is a nice journal entry! It's 4 years too late but I gotta say this is lovely! I love this seires and I'm happy you're so willing to talk to the fans.
It's been so Interesting learning about the lore and stories you guys had planned for these games. Wish they could've been realized. Would've loved a remake or soemthing reincorporating these ideas. Love ya dude. Hope you're still answering questions SOME WHERE.
I'm really curious about some of DotD's content. Specifically the scene with volteer and Cyril. My favs and OTP lol. How would that scene have played out? Hated that they both only got one line in the game. Volteer is a chatterbox! Why does he only have one line .
Thanks and you're welcome!
I like you did draw cynder the black dragon but I really confused her colors .
Begin she was black and red is color my favorites but I don’t know why on 2008 she change her colors like not good ( I don’t like her new colors she should black and red and her power darkness OK, looks Great )
thank you show us amazing your artwork, Been 11 years I still miss TLoS I hope one day he’ll be back future , )
TLoS forever, yes.
but, i think some part of universe of Legend of Spyro are connected in Lore of Elder scrolls (skyrim), exactly in Dawn era, Ruins and colliding, seems like in end of dawn of the dragon too.
and some of people think that Legend of Spyro DoTD are connected to Skyrim World.
the most i want until now, make Legend of Spyro trilogy to be a films like in 2010 ago, not a game although it belong to Acti now.
cuz LoS now would be better into a movie because its trilogy already to be a story that made into a movie.
You are awesome, thanks again!
And of course... I totally agree with you: TLoS forever!
Once thing still bugs me though: What kind of society do Dragonflies have in TLoS? Spyro was raised by a dragonfly family, but we don't know much about them beyond that.
Dragonflies live very much in family social clans for extended periods,usually near water, and are widespread in the worlds of TLoS. These clans are usually fiercely independent and proud of their heritage, but often work together forming beneficial alliances to ensure survival in more harsher climes. They have a warrior caste to protect them from predators, but it is largely 'unexplored wilderness' where their society structure is concerned, so there aren't any hard and fast particulars set down Nina and Flash were Sparx's parents and the adoptive parents of Spyro, and were beautifully designed by the very talented concept artist Mr Richard Lyons Hope that fills in some blanks for you!
it's an honor to have a developer of TLoS here , and i'm glad that you feel welcome , and i hope to see another TLoS game in the near future , that'd be super !!!
I do hope that you will continue to show us your talent for drawing and discussing your inspiration for everything you've done on this project. In truth its a little inspiring for me. I'm currently undertaking a Major in 'Games Art and Design' in my university's School of Arts. Looking at all you've done for this game and the thought you've put into every design and character. It fills me with the kind of hope that never fades, if that makes any sense.
Sorry for getting a little dramatic. But anyway. Just so you know: I'm happy you're here. And i hope your stay on DA is a good one!
