Good Night Mom, I Love You by Cattensu Good Night Mom, I Love You by Cattensu
I spent way to much time on this! (pretty much the whole day) but it was wreath it I love how it came out, it's the best Mothers Day themed picture I've ever drawn!:happybounce:
This was just supposed to be a sketch sort of like this [link] but it got all crazy and detailed, I mean I even added veins to Nina's wings! which isn't something I've ever done before.

Here's Spyro and his mom Nina wishing each other a good night.
I've always felt like they should have done something more with Spyro and Sparx's parents, they could have at least mentioned them a few time over the course of the series particually in the other two games, Spyro and Sparx are often talking to each other when walking through the levels, so why not talk about their mom and dad.
Anyways enough ranting.

And yes those are glowing mushroom trees in the background, I figured that if there can be giant glowing jellyfish type creatures in the wood in the Eternal Night why can't the mushrooms in the swamp where Spyro was rise glow.
Under one of the glowing mushroom trees is the rest of Spyro's family, Sparx his brother and Flash his father.

Happy Mothers Day!

Spyro, Nina, Flash and Sparx belong to Activision.
Art belongs to me A.L. Jones.

This is sooo pretty!!! I really would have liked to see more of the dynamic between Spyro and his adoptive family than what was shown in A New Beginning. In my opinion the overall story would have seemed a lot smoother and unified if they called characters from the previous games in the trilogy back at least for a brief mention. Spyro and Sparx's parents pretty much have no more than 5 lines combined in the entire series, and the guardians from ANB were all reduced to nothing but background characters by the time Dawn of the Dragon ended. They could have done so much more to develop the characters and the relationships that existed between them.

Unfortunately, we'll never see her again.

Let me say that this is one of the most amazing images I have ever seen for this fandom. I feel like few people decide to touch this part of the story, and just breeching into it opens a million doors to cuteness. I mean, Spyro's step-parents... Just imagine all the things they had to do to allow spyro to have a decent life. It must have been a great, and beautiful sacrifice on their part.

Lovely image, the love between them appears so strong. I agree, I was really hoping they would do something with Spyro's and Sparx's parents in Dawn of the Dragon since I believe the land they lived in was destroyed. It would've been really cool to have some closure with them.

Loved the picture, but took me a bit of research to confirm a wild guess :D.
Aww, she really looks motherly, must have been a bit weird to be a fraction the size o your son :XD:.
Those glowing mushroms are fine, it really adds that fantasy vibe to it (And I could have sworn I saw glowing mushrooms in a PSX Spyro demo).
