- skylanders : spyro - by slawomiro - skylanders : spyro - by slawomiro
First I'd like to start from expressing my own reaction when I saw this 'New Spyro'...
My first reaction to the new Spyro was quite negative , to be honest.
But after a few hours of looking at the new render while doing the sketch , I kinda liked it.

You probably heard about the action figures , so here's how it works.

Here's the trailer and the official site.

I know he doesn't look a lot like Spyro...But!
Here's my opinion about this. Maybe it's the Skylanders that should be considered as the main topic of the game , not Spyro?
Maybe Spyro's role should be considered as a part of thoes skylanders , they may be a team , clan or something like that.

So maybe Activision's just using the licence of Spyro as the lead character of the Skylanders 'clan'?

Anyways , how about we just be happy that Spyro's back and we'll see how it all is going to be later , huh? :D

I did the sketch while listening to the new song by Emmure called "Solar Flare Homicide".

CHECK THIS SKYLANDERS FANART , TOO!!

HERE'S CYNDER! :D

At first, I was more angered by the whole cash-cow aspect of Skylanders than anything. I sort of enjoy the new Spyro design, and I agree 100% with what you said in the description- he should be viewed as part of a team in this spinoff series, rather than his role of hero in the original series.
Ahem, pardon my rambling. Anyways..... He looks neat here. I love the detail to his wings and scales, and the colours look nice as well.

I prefer classic Spyro's design, I just love that cartoony-cute look about him, I think it's funny, and in YOTD his eyebrows seem to float, lol.

*just shakes his head at some of the other commenters*

This picture is great. And I honestly don't mind the redesign at all. He's a dragon, he should look a little ugly-cute, not like the original version with the oversized toon eyes and the really small paws and stuff.

Though I actually prefer "Dawn of the Dragon's" design to this, but that's just my personal preference :)

So many people hating this for such shallow reasons though... and I grew up with Spyro, too :/ so it's not like I'm a newcomer to the series.

In that case, you should always listen to Emmure when drawing Spyro -- This looks MUCH better than the Skylander's official version. Although those paws / talons look weird... But still, THIS is a dragon.

why are people putting skylanders "spyro" on devianart. When i search for Spyro pictures I dont like seeing deformed lizards. They need a whole other folder for skylanders crap so us real spyro fans dont get caught up in skylanders junkpile.

Is this drawn out? Or did you make this digitally, and if so, what software did you use? :P I still can't get over just how amazing this looks. And I don't even like the new Skylanders. You actually have a way of making the Skylanders Spyro, look good!

I totally agree with you! I disliked the design in the beginning but the reason they think its bad, its because "they" compare it with the old design. We should know that a character design variates through the time. A really good example is "the joker". You see "The Joker" of the 90īs and doesn't look like the joker 2008. It has the same characteristics but they exposed them in a different way. So like Spyro: Its a dragon, has the same color pattern and throws fire, like the first Spyro.

So, for the ones that complain about the design, please STOP COMPLAINING! x.x Believe me, its not the last game in which Spyro appears and also the last design. There will be more ;) And for the ones who hate this game because of Spyro, I bought the game yesterday and the gameplay is just fantastic. I loved it! :)

Sorry if i wrote all this in the comment but i just had too. X3 I love how it turned out this pic, specially the scales textures you added on him.

This is disgusting - not your art, but the Skylander's new version of Spyro.
It's a great idea for a game - poorly executed.

The gameplay LOOKS terrible.

Spyro looks like he's been hit in the face with a frying pan.

Way to ruin a perfectly good game, Activision.

I prefer the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Link raises the Skyward Sword against the Skylanders who are terrorizing all of Hyrule.

i think people should stop hating on this game.. it's true that they changed his appearance a lot but i like the idea that you can change your person at anytime and spyro can actually fly for long periods of time instead of gliding.. i think we should give this game a chance before we rate it bad..
