Frozen Altars by DaffoDille Frozen Altars by DaffoDille
Here's the colored version of the commission for :iconladuma:. :> This piece took longer than I expected but I am very happy with how it turned out. Architecture is something I don't draw often so I'm glad to be getting a bit more experience.

I think I'll do more of this type of commission in the future; they're lots of fun. :>

The music is great! I think my favorite music is either Cloud Spires, Seashell Shore, or Enchanted Towers. Ooh or Molten Crater.


Heck it's all good. Cx

Another tough question! I think that'd have to be Crystal Glacier. I grew up where we got very little snow so it just seemed so magical, also I was a gigantic nerd for dinosaurs so the bones showing in the walls and cliff sides were the cherry on top. Now I appreciate Mystic Marsh and Cloud Temples for their aesthetic, but I think the nostalgia is strongest with Crystal Glacier which makes it the winner. c:

How about you?

Love that description! That sounds very legit.
It is a nice world, I must admit. The Snow Leopard made me melt. xD
That one for me is difficult, I must say. I really loved Cloud Temples.
The music and the overall puzzle to it was a lot of fun. I also found it hilarious
when one of the magicians was trying to recite a spell and failed. xD
"Klatoo verata... ni... nuu... na.... nevermind..."
Agent Zero was also hilarious and fun to do!

Love this level with the breath of ice.
You perfectly reproduces the scene: I immediately recognized it. Without difficulty I am back in the game with this drawing ;)

Sorry if I am a little boring, but I am so impressed by the colors that you use: it fits perfectly with the level, amazing!

Oh, you just know how to speak to my inner child, don't you? This was one of my favorite levels in my favorite Spyro game! I loved freezing those mammoths, but sometimes it was so hard, haha. I don't remember much of the level's colors, but I love that you used pinks and purples throughout this piece, and tied the blue of the sky with the blue of the architecture.


Kudos on this! I have a feeling I'm going to be favoriting a lot of your Spyro pieces, and really look forward to seeing more from you!

I'm so glad you like it. <3 This level was one of my favorites as well, probably because where I grew up we never saw snow and it was so novel to me. The colors are pretty true to the game I think, I actually booted up the game and referenced them by eye to try and make the colors accurate even while I improvised some of the architecture. 

You can count on seeing plenty more Spyro pieces from me, don't you worry! :>

Having only seen snow once as a kid myself, I can definitely understand the novelty of it. ^^ I see, the colors look fantastic! Looking up images of the level again, you seem to have gotten the colors down excellently. This must have been a really fun palette to work with.

Wonderful! :D

Yeah, I'm trying to get my hands on a copy of the game. My Dad gave my only copy to my grandfather so he would have something else to do. So now I can't play it until I get my hands on another copy of the game. It's so frustrating!!! Frustration Sigh

Which game is your favorite? I can never decide, personally. I think I like the level design the best in the third game but the second game was the first game I ever owned so I can't help but love it best. x)
