((EDIT: Yes, I am well aware that many of you viewers think that the holes in his wings are a bit too big. But that is how they were in the games AND the concept artwork I used for referrence! Deal with it!))
So I'm going in chonological order here with the dragon guardians. Cyril and Terrador will be coming next after this one.
I gotta say, I had a lot of fun drawing this piece. Out of all of the pics that I've drawn of the Spyro characters, this was the one I enjoyed doing the most. I was experamenting with lighting and shadow to the extreme on this one, and I am rather proud on how it turned out.
I drew several layers of clouds and rock spires to get the feeling of depth and space to show that this is a huge place he's in. The rain was probably the most difficult thing along with adding the spray as it's hitting him and also the drips of water as it's falling down.
Any normal dragon wouldn't like to be caught in this kind of weather, but Volteer being an electric dragon, I think he rather enjoys it!
