It took me a while to get around to it, but I finally redesigned Spyro and his faithful companion Sparx! Now, I honestly didn't think I would need to redesign Spyro, cuz' he's perfect just the way he is, but I did it to paint a picture of what I'd want him to be like.
Personally, I like the Spyro models they used in "Enter the Dragonfly" and "A Hero's Tail", and I liked the Sparx models in those games as well, so I would really like to see models similar to that if they ever remade the series. I used multiple references for this picture, including this: www.majhost.com/gallery/tahu-h…
, for quality, and this: x1.fjcdn.com/comments/Did+some…
, for originality.
I wanted Spyro to look young as well, as he was just in his teens in the first three games. I also wanted him to have his rattlesnake-like tail (as opposed to his pointy, spike-like ones we've seen in recent games), and those little things on the tip of his wings that emitted streaks when he flew.
As for Sparx, my hardest decision was whether or not to give him hands. In the media for the first games, he was given arms with gloves, but were never seen in-game, so I decided to leave him armless. Sorry Sparx
