Throwback Dragons: Spyro by Lucky978 Throwback Dragons: Spyro by Lucky978
Second addition to my new throwback dragons series :D I am going to try and upload 1 a day before MomoCon (which starts next Friday!!!). 
This purple guy was my childhood XD Last year my brother and I bought a playstation off ebay and replayed the first game.   We got to Gnasty Gnorc's layer and everything!

Help me decide who to paint next!

The good days when Spyro was a hatchling and played with Spinx.... That's how you spell it, right?

I love this! I loved the original Spyro game (the later ones were a bit rubbish) and I really like how you've painted him - it's not cartoony at all :)

Awesome work! I love how you did the shading, colours, background and the details are fantastic! The moon reminds me of the Celestial Moons from TEN, is that what you were referencing to? Overal, beautiful work!

If you did Spyro, you might as well try Cynder. ovo
But Saphira would be pretty awesome, too.

I absolutely love that you've done Spyro.  And you certainly did him justice here.  Magnificent. :heart:  When I think of gaming in my childhood years, Spyro is front and center.  We have every game; Spyro is the one character everybody in my family can agree to love.  :D  Will this become a print in your store?

Hmm, maybe the guardians from the Legend of Spyro series? Orrrrrr the dragon from Inuyasha? (Ryūkotsusei) I think his name was. Or Haku from spirited away?
