Spyro Portrait - I'm going to paint this

There's a local painting group that meets at my school a couple times a month. When they come in I usually paint with them. This is what I'll be working on. A portrait of Spyro the Dragon. The sketch is graphite on heavy weight illustration board. The kind that's used for painting backgrounds in animation production. Measures  11 x 8.5 inches  (28 x 21.6 centimeters). I'll be paiting this in acrylics. We'll see how it turns out.

Spyro looks mad that you drawn him.

He's a determined little dragon.

I just noticed the spikes in his head is supposed to be a fin! Also great Spyro as always, it's always good to see new art from you, I can't wait to see this picture fully painted.

Thanks Araceli. PS ... I haven't forgotten about your character. I still intend on drawing her.

Unknown ... You're right about the fin. I looked at the original drawings I did of Spyro and also how he's portrayed in the games. I'm going to modify the design as I progress with the painting. Thanks for pointing that out and also for your comments.

Sorry about the "Unknown" in the username, I don't know if you remember but I'm Gabriele, I followed your blog for quite some time now. Recently I changed my Google account and that messed up my name in here apparently, sorry :P

Gabriele! Well now that you're "Geb" I know who are. Thanks for checking in.

You're welcome! Oh don't worry!!! I will be very patient, it is a big honor for me and I will wait all the necessary time!


Nice! So I will see what you do with him in future, it is always great to seeing the brave and little dragon ♡

It is a pleasure. I'm trying to be more active on blogger so I could continue looking at your works and also this inspires to continue with my blog too (I had it very abandoned lately hehe)

I've done a little work on this. Mostly getting some basic colors blocked in.

Araceli I have a drawing of your character sketched out in blue pencil.
