Year Of The Dragon by HerOnceWhiteWings Year Of The Dragon by HerOnceWhiteWings
EDIT:I'm really happy (and a little surprised) that so many groups requested this to be featured in their galleries :'). It means a lot to me. I appreciate the huge support :')

I recently found this game in my closet, and reminded me of so many things of my childhood :'). I loved Spyro the Dragon as a kid, and I still do :heart: So, the basic idea of the drawing was Year of the Dragon game in a nutshell :meow:. I think I did quite well :)
About the drawing. My favorite part is Agent 9. I just love how he came out, I wanted him to look a little startled, and aiming with his laser beam :meow: Of all Spyro's friends, I think Agent 9 is the coolest :iconmonkeyloveplz:.
I'm very pleased with Spyro, but not so much with Sparx :(. I also think Hunter and Bianca made a great couple, I was rooting for those two from the beginning :meow:
I like how Sheila and Bentley came out, although I hoped Bartholomew would look cuter :iconsobplz: I loved him to death!!! :iconinloveplz: I was also planning to draw Sgt. Byrd in a different pose, but then I thought hey, he's the one and only penguin than can fly, so why not point that out? ;)
And last but not least, that cheap, greedy creature, Moneybags. I gave him a doublechin just to show how much I hated him ;P. Chasing him all around Midnight Mountain was more fun than defeating the Sorceress :iconmwahahaplz:. Heh!

I'm thinking of making similar fanart of other games I used to play as a kid (like Crash Bandicoot). But I've been requested to draw something else, so it will have to wait.

Spyro and the rest belong to Universal Interactive Studios, Insomniac

This is such a great tribute to Spyro 3! :dance: Everyone turned out so well! (And yes, I hate Moneybags too that sometimes I cheated as much as possible instead of paying him my precious gems - then it was fun to chase him around in Midnight Mountain. :evillaugh:) Brilliant work! :clap:

Thank you so much for the thoughtful comment, and I'm extremely sorry for the late reply DX
I didn't know you could cheat in Spyro 3 ^^; I remember, because I couldn't find the authentic games, I had to make do with hacked versions, and while 1 and 2 were fine, I was ALWAYS busted in 3.

You're welcome! ^^ And no worries about a delayed reply.
I don't remember which few levels you could cheat, only that I did that twice or three times...? I need to replay it again, it was so long time ago. XD

Oh, I think I remember a video on YT, was it about entering Sheila's Alp without paying Moneybags?

I don't believe anyone else could've done a better job of drawing that, the original three spyro games are the only good ones.... ever. They ruined the games afterwards.  

(P.s. I bet a crash bandicoot drawing would look epic!!)

This was the first console game I ever played as a child and had the pleasure of owning. So many great memories... It used to be so difficult! The feeling when you received the final Dragon Egg and had collected all the gems only to enter the super bonus level!
...And then you decide to get nostalgic and realize you can clear the game in three days with ease XD

This is a very charming picture:aww: The composition is great and I love the array of vibrant colors. Not to mention how well you drew each character! And that you actually used colored pencils for this:heart:
I like Spyro especially in this, but also Sheila came out very well in my opinion. The colors are fantastic.

The first game I ever played was Super Mario 64. THe first game I played on a Play Station console was Bugs Bunny, then Crash Bandicoot Warped, then Spyro3 :) All games mean many things to me, as they remind me of my childhood. As for Spyro, I was quite unlucky. You see, I always had a hacked version, and I could never finish the game. And even now, that I finally got myself an official version of the game (2 years ago) it bugged :( In Honey Speedway, no matter how many times I raced the bees, Sparx would never give me an egg :( But I remember, when I was a kid, how I thought it was impossible to reach the egg on the cave, in Sunrise Spring Home.
Thank you for your comment <3 I tried to include as many characters as possible. And because I drew about a game I played as a kid, I decided I would only use colored pencils, for old times' sake :') At this time, I'm actually trying to remember more of my childhood :) I've only succeded so far, and I'm very happy to make thst statement.
Thank you, very much. Really <3

I see:nod: My early childhood consisted of Spyro, Klonoa 2 and Jak&Daxter. Then I got a handheld console and a Pokemon game XD
I'm so sorry. I can kind of relate to that, too, though, because we used to have a Rayman game on our computer. There was a really difficult stage we could never clear, but then one day we succeeded... Only to find out the game was merely a trial version or something and didn't continue after that. Years later we got the official game on Playstation.
You're very welcome:aww:
He he, that was a sweet tool decision. I'm a person who never got over the colored pencils of my childhood, though=D

You know, 3 years ago, it was very disappointing, I had collected every gem, and all eggs but one, because of a stupid bug :(
I'm glad you understand how I can relate. I feel lucky to have been born in the mid 90's. We were the best :D Myself, I still can't get over Pokemon :) I'm actually drawing comic pages of my own Pokemon story :)
I use markers sometimes, but my pencils will always be my most powerful weapon :)

90's had a lot to offer, that's for sure:nod:
Hee hah, I can never get over Pokemon, either:la: It's one of my biggest obsessions! Looking forward to new games, doodling portraits of the villains... That stuff. I'm more into the games but I do still watch the anime if it comes from the TV XD

It still is <3 Though, I stoppped watching it on TV and stopped reading the manga when Gen 3 popped in. I'm a Gen1 fan. That;s why my manga and OC have nothing to do with other Gens than the first one.

Yeah,my goal was to include some basic (Zoe, Sparx, the Sorceress, Hunter etc) and all the other playable characters of the game. And also, those who opened up the portals and helped create means of transportation through the Forgotten Worlds. Thank you for your lovely comment <3
