One Last Chance... by NovaBrush One Last Chance... by NovaBrush
My style of drawing the older Spyro and Cynder... I guess you could call it a tribute for the end of "Dawn of the Dragon". :'(

I drew Cynder and Spyro freehand on Open Canvas (2nd time using it :D) and coloured them in there. I then transferred them to Photoshop and did the background and glowing effects there.

I'm pretty sure you already know by now, but in a post-credits scene, it shows that Spyro and Cynder are alive and flying over the land of Avalar, enjoying their peaceful lives. But, honestly, the whole "Death of a Hero" scenario would work perfectly as an ending. It would strike a major impact on the ending of the series, but that's just me. I actually was happier with the outcome of them being alive, though.

Yeah the end of Dawn of the Dragon was pretty down, but we´ll always remember them.
Hopefully they´ll come back again in the future.

I first thought that Cynder was a huge hand and her horns were the talons :O_o: I thought the idea was Corrupted Cynder holding Spyro in her paw,yeeh! Me and my imagination :XD: Spyro's Horns look kinda broken :P But anyways it looks nice xP

Lol,I see. Still keep this pic tho. It'll be the reminder of the past =P Speaking of Upgrates, I often see in my Inbox a Deviation and next to it the same Deviation only below it there is written "Updated" or "Upgrated" :P How can I upgrate my already-submitted Devation and allow everyone to know that I did. Or only Premium Members can do that? TT^TT

Yeah I agree, but it was one of my earlier works and I didn't have a PC tablet then... so you could imagine how hard it was to draw with a mouse. ^^;

I have always loved Cynder, she's just an awesome dragon!

She looks sooooo cool as an adult, and adorable as a dragonet... but I'm not too keen on her teen look... ah well DotD WAS THE BEST GAME EVERRRR!! :XD::XD::XD:

I've done one piece of DOTD art
..if you would like to have a look? Maybe a comment? :blush: I'd just love that!:D

Yeah, Cynder was what got me going through the "Legend" series, I loved her character, but I'm more a fan of the orginal PS1 series :) (espechially the first) But I loved to fly around everywhere (espechially in the valley which had that really "open adventerous" feeling)

Sure thing I'll do it now! :D

Cynder is freakin awesome, I loved her anatomy as a dragon, it was sleek and feminine; not as bulky as the others (and it was about time to have a female figure that was powerful and not stereotypically girly lol). I thought the voice that suite so well was the voice over for her adult form.

Yer I hope so lol. To be honest I dunno anymore. I used to think that the when a dragon dies quote was used so that fans of spyro wont be pissed off that the producers killed off the hero. The world was going to end regardless if Malefore died or not, so that's why Spyro knew that only he couls stop it. The power to save another life (in his case, lives) has a very high cost and resulted in spyro passing away.

Everyone knows Igitus died, so it makes sense that he was in dragon heaven and therefore explained that the Blue Dragon was a spirit since he became one with Ignitus. Ignitus now watches over dragon heaven since the necklace was the gateway to there. As for the book, the producers didnt want to confirm sypros death as theyd contradict themselves.

i always thought that the WHEN A DRAGON DIES quote meant ignituss' death. but then, ignitus the new chronicler, said "well, young dragon, where might you be..." meant that he knew spyro was still alive, but just in hiding.

NovaBrush Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, either that or the company just don't want to confirm IF spyro and cynder died. Otherwise theyd have so many complaints that its not funny.

one question.ahem......

WHY ARE THEY CRYING!!!!!
Reply
:iconnovabrush:
NovaBrush Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Well, if you played the newest release of Legend of Spyro, that should be the dead give away. (Hence why I said this was a tribute.)

If you haven't played it and want to know what happens in the end... well scroll down.









































In order for Spyro to fulfill his duty as the Purple Dragon, he must save the world from Malefore (Dark Master and 1st Purple Dragon to betray everyone). However, despite Spyro's and Cynder's efforts to try and stop him, the world was still about to be destroyed.

In the end, Spyro knew that the only way to save everyone, was for him to reach for the power deep within and sacrifice himself. Cynder, on the other hand, had the option to leave but was too stubborn to do so, and here we learn that she did, infact loved him. (Yes a bit corny but I still cried since Spyro is dead, and so is the series.) Sparx was ealrier separated from the dragons just before the Final Boss Level, this also leads to believe that he never knew exactly what happened to Spyro. He, like the rest of the population, just saw a huge ball of light and the world was restored back to order.

So that's why they were crying, it was their "One Last Chance" of saying good-bye.

I know! :( That's why I didn't want the series to end... for the past few years I always got really excited for the next one to come out.


But if I spoiled anything... don't blame me cause I did give a warning.
