Spyro Baddies: Year of the Dragon by Squeedge

Spyro Baddies: Year of the Dragon


6 November 2012 at 15:30:44 MST

I've started a fun little side project where I'm "reimagining" my favorite enemies from the PS1 Spyro games. Part homage, part character design practice, lots of fun.

Here's the first batch, all from the third game, Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

Going clockwise, we have the mammoth from Frozen Alters, crystal bear from Crystal Islands, Gator from Spooky Swamp, flying monster from Enchanted Towers, Buzz from Buzz's Dungeon, and the t-rex cowboy from Dino Mines.

You can check out the individual drawings compared to their polygonal predecessors at my art blog under tagged under #Spyro Baddies.

(Pleaaaase no requests/asking what I'm going to do next. I already have a set list of what I'll be drawing, and I like keeping the posts a surprise.)

Drawn in Paint Tool SAI

Textures & editing done with CS6

    Year of the Dragon was the best, was it not? Definitely my favorite of the series. I'm getting a nostalgia kick just looking at this!

    Those T-Rex Cowboys were my favorite, I really loved that level.
