Spyro the Dragon by bigponymac Spyro the Dragon by bigponymac
Was feeling a little nostalgic and decided to draw a character from my childhood. Spyro the Dragon wasn't the first game I ever played, but it was the first game I fell in love with and was the game that started my gaming career.

Just to put this out there, I have no idea what the Spyro games were like after Insomniac got through with him. I grew up playing the original trilogy and haven't played any Spyro games after that.

Spyro belongs to Activision? (I honestly have no idea)
Art belongs to me

I love love love your take on him. Like you, I didn't really play the PS2 era  Spyro games until I got Heroes Tail for the Gamecuibe . I'm still on the beginning because I got freaked out by their spiders lol They're so big! but yeah, anyway, I love how he looks in your style. Very beautiful shade of purple you went with here. :)

I have to agree, Spyro was without questioning THE best game for PS1 of my childhood. I was (and *am*) particularly fond of Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer, but I love Spyro 1 and Spyro 3 as well. ^^ I did try the first chapter of The Legend of Spyro, but in my opinion it just doesn't compare to the good ol' PS1 titles.

Awesome piece of art, man, and thank you for bringing back good memories. :)

I loved all three games of the original trilogy but the first one will always hold a special place in my heart. I can't tell you how many times I've played through Spyro 1 as a kid because I didn't have a memory card when I first got it.

I recently bought all three games in their black labels off eBay not too long ago. Already beat the first one again and plan on running through the rest eventually.

Thanks and you're welcome! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it. :)

Thanks! I know Indomniac did the originals, I just wasn't sure who owned him after the original trilogy.

I used to play Spyro and Crash Bandicoot on the first PlayStation when they came out.

Omgomgomgomg spyro was my childhood as well! I loved all the games especially the ones on the PS1 but my favorite spyro game was legend of spyro dawn of the dragon :D I wish they'll make more spyro games (not the skylanders piece of crap, spyro looks really bad in that game) thank you :-)

Yay Spyro! I loved these games when I was a kid. And just so you know, the Spyro games after the first three were complete trash.

See that's what I've heard. I've never played them myself. Actually I played a little demo of the first one after the main trilogy, but I remember nothing about it.

The first three made by Insomniac are the ones I (as well as everyone else) would recommend.
