Ignitus and Spyro by FyreDragon5 Ignitus and Spyro by FyreDragon5
I've been in a Spyro mood for a while, so I'd thought I'd fork up some fan art of these two!

If there was one thing that bugged me throughout the ENTIRE "Legend of Spyro" Trilogy, it was how similar Spyro was to Ignitus! I mean c'mon, they have similar horn structures, the first element that Spyro mastered was fire, he not only looked towards Ignitus as a mentor/father figure, but the way Ignitus almost treated him as if he were his own son was the icing on the cake for me!

SERIOUSLY! WHY DID ACTIVISION TEASE US SPYRO FANS FOR THREE GAMES AND NOT CONFIRM THAT IGNITUS WAS SPYRO'S FATHER?!? IT'S SOOOOOOOOOOOOO OBVIOUS! *Pant...Pant* ...Okay, I think I'm calm now... *Twitch*

I know it's been four years since the final LOS game was released, but I'm still a hardcore fan! And I love these two soooooooo much! Ignitus would be the perfect dad for Spyro! Raise your hands if you agree!

*raises hand* Oh! ME! I agree!!!

Fyre this is just awesome! You captured them SOOOO perfectly! *sqeek!* You're just too much!
This is so cute. I just want to pick little Spyro up and hug him! And who doesn't love Ignitus?
The impact is spot on. I think you really captured how much Ignitus cares for Spyro. And I completely agree. Why they had to tease us all that time and then never say that Spyro was his son is beyond me. After all it makes perfect sense.
The technique...well, are you kidding? You did AMAZING! It looks like artwork taken from the games! The colors are great, the expressions are perfect, and really nice job on the shading.

Very nicely done Fyre! Excellent job! :clap:
What do you think?

I must say that I absolutely adore this picture. While I am not familiar with the Spyro World/Universe, I am taken by the loving watchfulness of the red fatherly dragon. I truly enjoy your style of art Fyre, the way your characters seem so genuine and awesome - the pose and expression bring it out so clearly. Well done, and please, when will there be more?
(I am aware that this is fan art, but you're the artist of this.)
My only critique would be the shading: I think that if the light source is from above, the wing would shadow Spyro a little more. But beyond that I find the picture touching and excellently displayed. I can make out the textures and I love the coloring. You're clearly inspired FyreDragon5. Keep it up.
Also, I raise my hand, I can see this pair as family - father and son.

I never played these games but as I was watching the walk through of them, I wondered why I appreciated Ignitus so much...the mentorness and his calmness are refreshing ^^
