Like I mentioned on the art I did for my parents,
they got really into Pokemon Go and so I drew them with Pokemon and made badges for them. I liked how they turned out so I wanted to do one for myself.
Because I was drawing this in connection with Go, I fought the urge to give Spyro, (who is indeed named Spyro in Go as well,) a collar. Then I drew Vye originally in a turtle neck but when I went to color it thought it looked too much like I was trying to draw her in the Valor sweater and didn't want to do that. So I changed it to basically the outfit I gave her for X and Y. That somehow makes it more odd.
As of the time of drawing and coloring this, Aron is not in Pokemon Go. I'm guessing it will be soon. But since my parents had a first stage Pokemon and a final form, I thought I should have that too to mirror them. Aron is just the one my heart wanted.
