- 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

Totally awesome rend of Spyro, he's my favorite dragon character of all time, a long with Cynder as well.

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.
