Spyro by FyreDragon5 Spyro by FyreDragon5
Okay, I needed to upload something, even though this is an old pic that has been sitting on my computer for eight months. I was in a Spyro mood earlier this year, so I wanted to come up with character shots for each of the main dragons in The Legend of Spyro Trilogy.

I'll upload the rest of them in the coming weeks, but each picture is going to have the characters by themselves in an environment that is parallel to their personality. (At least what I think fits with their personalities)

So anyway, I hope you all will enjoy my Spyro pics! I've put a lot of hard work into them! Comments are appreciated! :D

Download for full view, these pics are HUGE!

First allow me a fangirl moment. :squee: :happybounce: This is AWESOME!!! :la:

*clears throat* Now that that's out of the way I can now give you a (hopefully) proper critique. ;p

First of all I think this is amazing! I don't think I've seen any art with Spyro as an adult. Though I'm sure there are some, but like I said I've never seen them so it's very original to me. And might I say he looks incredible!
I love the background! The glowing mushroom-tree thingies(do they have a name? I've forgotten ^^; ) are beautiful and the grass and water have a very nice textured look to them. The expression on Spyro's face is just so darn cute! I think you did a very great job capturing his look from a young dragon and kept the integrity of his facial characteristics as an adult. That alone couldn't have been easy. I say very well done indeed! :clap:

This is beautiful, and by far the best I have ever seen Spyro depicted. (I will admit, you may recall, that I am unfamiliar with the Spyro universe.) I love that just looking at him screams dragon and the extended wings are an inspired touch.
Fyre you have a vivid imagination with a clarity for detail and a brilliance for story. I love that your characters tell so much with their body language - something that I think more artists should aspire to. The night sky and glowing mushrooms are a nice touch - I'm guessing the scenery is from the game.
As for a critique, I love how detailed the subject of the picture is and the simplistic yet detailed background draws the eyes back to the subject. (I can't help but feel that there's more to the story of this picture.) The only thing I would thing to add is put a little more into the background - you've done very well and I love it, however I think it could have a tad more realism similar to the style of your dragon. (Sadly, I'm not an artist and can't offer suggestions but I think that could use a little improvement.)
I'm looking forward to the other dragons. Dragons are my favorite. ^^
