Spyro Sculpture by Gatobob Spyro Sculpture by Gatobob
I finally finished it :happycry:

I made this is a special trophy to myself for my 10 year anniversary with DA ^o^ I've always wanted classic Spyro merchandise, but there's very little out there and I can't afford most of it XD

EDIT: Thank you so much for the DD!! I've added a few alternate shots for the curious below :D

Spyro Sculpture - Alternate Shots by Gatobob

My design for him is mainly based on in-game graphics but with some modifications of my own. Most notably, I altered the style of the wings to be different on the tops and bottoms of the wings- this was completely a stylistic preference. I also chose to ignore the box-art high poly model's unique additions since I don't really care for them ( claws on the tips of his wings, spikes along his back, yellow claws ) I instead went with what I felt they were trying to get across in game with textures on the low poly model.

His base is based on my favourite level: Crystal Islands of Spyro: Year of the Dragon. His props represent the three classic games; a gem for Spyro the Dragon, an orb for Spyro: Ripto's Rage, and a dragon egg for Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

The base is wood, but it's covered in Super Sculpy. Everything else is sculpted from various mixes of Super Sculpy and Super Sculpy firm ( he also has a metal armature ). It's painted in acrylics and finished with a matte coating. There's a bit of glossy varnish on a few parts. If you'd like to see my process in building him, I have an album devoted to him at my store's facebook page here.

This is just fantastic and it gives me so much nostalgia! I really miss these games and I wish there had been more. (More like the original three that is.)

Very true, very true. It's taken me years to come to terms with the fact that 3 is all I'm ever going to get. But that doesn't mean I love them any less!!

I love spyro, I've played all the games from the gameboy, to nintendo, even to PS1-PS3, and wii. I'm so impressed that you sculpted the crystals from the Avalar realm so well! Very cool!
