Crash and Spyro - Sketches and Commissions

Happy New Year Blogger friends! Hoping 2022 will be a terrific time for you! 
Though I haven't posted much recently I've had a few moments to keep my chops up with Crash and Spyro. This past year has been one of significant change for me and I didn't have an opportunity to create as much as I would like. But as the year progressed things opened up and I was able to get back to it.

Here's a little gallery of what I've been up to. Mostly sketching with friends and sometimes on my own. Also a few commissions I accepted. Some of these drawings were done straight ahead with ball point pen and some with blue pencil and ball point pen. It was great fun and I really enjoyed myself. I'm very happy that the Crash and Spyro characters and franchises have continued to grow over the years. I like drawing them. I intend on making 2022 a banner year for personal art and projects. 
Thanks for checking in!

Hey Charles! I love the great work in the sketches you do as usual. I really like the drawing's of Crash using a skateboard, Could make a good idea for a hobby of his. btw this drawing of Cortex and wanted know you're opinion on it.

Hey Hazman that's a good rendition of Cortex. You've got me thinking now about getting back to doing other characters. Those versions of Crash were drawn for a fellow that's into skateboarding. I'll probably work these up more. Have a Happy New Year!

It's always nice to see more art from you, i love this version of Crash, those big cheeks are adorable, I wanna pinch them!
I wonder how other characters would look like now, after all, it's been a good number of years since you last drew characters like Dingodile, Tiny, Ripper Roo etc.
I'm looking forward to see what you got for us, Crash or non-Crash related.

Charles Z said...

Thanks Geb. I was thinking the same thing with other characters from Crash. I plan on doing more.

Assuming you're the real Charles Zembillias, I have a question for you:

Are you seriously praising those phony Crash Bandicoot games that Activision puked during past few years? I mean, doesn't the genuine article Crash Bandicoot matter to you anymore?

Like, NST, NF IAT and upcoming Team Rumble are constantly mocking Crash Bandicoot and its fans, and they lack the appeal, edge and personality of the games you worked for. They for example, substituted Crash himself with flanderized, retarded inbreed, and Tawna with a poorly disquised, lesbian tomboy straight from Overwatch!

Those frauds even have bad influence to fanbase, turning fans into retarded, sadistic, gleeful trolls with zero appreciation towards original Crash Bandicoot and anyone who really cares about it. I've been their victim too. Constantly banned, blocked and told to kill myself all because I prefer the original Crash Bandicoot over Activision's hoaxes. Not to mention that Activision was sued for sexual harassment and labor violations several times by now.

So please, instead of letting Activision get away with this dreadful nightmare, why not stand up for the real Crash Bandicoot and demand its APPROPRIATE revival instead of one fraud after another?

I also wish you could join our Facebook community:
Joe Pearson is a member too.

I'm also making a fangame that stays FAR MORE true to its source material than Activision's hoaxes. At least after it's completed. I've only released its demo:

And in case you'd like to discuss further, my email is I also have a Discord in case you have one too.

Hello Charles
I don't know if this blog is still active,
I just wanted to tell you that I made a new animation of Crash
(a batman parody) with your drawing style.

Hope you like it... if you read this
