TSOS/TQOH - Gnasty Gnorc
Apart from SCP-682, this is perhaps the most complex vector I've ever made, and I'm damn proud of it!

I'm gonna be honest: I've never finished Spyro 1. Despite being the first game, it's also the hardest in terms of control and completion. When I first got the original trilogy, I tried to play them in chronological order; I played on until the Dream Catchers world, and after dealing with its frustrating mechanics, I decided to quit it for a bit and jump ahead to Ripto's Rage. I got myself hooked on the renewed, fleshed out mechanics and gameplay, and I never went back. Thus most of my memories about Gnasty Gnorc were mainly those of his sub-boss status in A Hero's Tail, where I was less than impressed by the game's interpretation of him. I did my research on the original Gnasty Gnorc through youtube walkthroughs, and I decided to originally base him off of the Orcs from Lord of the Rings (which I never cared for, as they were gross and unpleasant to look at). But then I saw the EPIC move that was Warcraft (I don't care what the fans of the game say, that movie was AWESOME!!), and I immediately scrapped the LOTR design and created a super-badass design based off the Orcs from World of Warcraft.

TSOS/TQOH - Lord Ripto
A rougher textured vector, but it captures the design well enough for a model reference.

Enter the Dragonfly was my first Spyro game, therefore Ripto was the first Spyro villain I ever dealt with. At first, I assumed he was just some frog-like creature or something, but when I learned that he was suppose to be a dinosaur, I was gravely insulted. This stumply, tailess shrimp (which an admittedly badass villain voice and laugh) was suppose to be one of my beloved dinosaurs?! Blasphemy! Hence my own design: I decided to go all out and turn him into a true saurian; since he was naturally small, I decided to turn him into a Utahraptor: a species relatively small compared to the likes of T. Rex and Spinosaurus, but made up for its size with speed, intelligence, and some of the deadliest natural weapons in the animal kingdom. Now we have a Ripto worthy of the dinosaur title!

TSOS/TQOH - Moneybags
Now HERE'S a face all Spyro fans want to set aflame...

You know that one character in a movie or video game that you don't outright hate (or maybe you do), but still REALLY want to punch in the face? Well, that character was Moneybags for me, and for a lot of long-time Spyro fans I'm sure. Every gem I lost to the bottomless bag, even blocked passage or sealed door with him standing in front of it, every 'small fee' I had to pay just to learn a new move. This jackass of a cons-bear was truly a focus point of young-minded bloodlust for me back in the day. As I character, I can't say I outright hate him, but everytime he forced me to give up the precious gems I gathered from all over I just want to ram his fat ass of the ledge of Dragonfly Dojo! And I dare any of you to say otherwise if you played Spyro back in the day!

TSOS/TQOH - Elora the Faun
An old vector that some of you might recognize.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a bit of a young kid's crush on Elora during my childhood; as one of the first major female video game characters of my entire life, she was one of my first fictional crushes (which I know we've ALL had at one point of our lives). That being said, the fact she dropped out of the original series was all the more disheartening. She had one major role in Ripto's Rage as the female lead (which the first Spyro didn't have), and then a brief cameo in Year of the Dragon. After that, she just...vanished. Never to be seen or even referenced in any Spyro game since. It's obvious now that she was pretty much replaced as female lead by Bianca, who was honestly a more interesting character. But even after all these years, and after moving on to more fictional crushes (Lara Croft quickly took that title...), this pretty faun still holds a special place in my heart.

TSOS/TQOH - Hunter of Avalar
Completely redid my Hunter vector, based this time on the original version, and am very pleased with the results.

Hunter, or Hunter of Avalar in the Legend series, was a mixed bag for me growing up. I didn't much about his original version, as he didn't have much of a role in the series other than as a tutorial character and his brief role in Year of the Dragon. I didn't hate him at all, but I didn't care that much for him either. It wasn't until he appeared in Legends that I actually got really invested in the character; he was like a cool furry legolas, with a crossbow and everything! And kudos to the fact that he was the only character of the original series to appear in the legend series other than Spyro and Sparx.

I probably should've put my previous blog up somewhere it would last after deleting my old account. Oh well.

Hey guys; some of you might remember me as Tyraka628, who has know deleted his old DA account. Why did I delete it and start a new one? To turn over a new leaf and start afresh.

It's been five years since I first joined DA in my old account; times sure change, and people do as well. And I like to think that the experiences I've had these past fives years, especially in the most recent six months (a LOT had happened in that time, and I am not the same person I was before). But I remember how I use to be, and looking back at my old account and all the old works I did, I realized I was a pretty horrible person, and I had said and done a lot of bad things. There were a few good memories I had back then, but most of them only reminded me of times I hurt, insulted, and demeaned myself, my friends, and a lot of people. I had been thinking about doing this for a while now, but it was a conversation I had yesterday with :iconaeridiccore: and my impatient nature that I decided enough was enough.

I can no longer continue living my life as the person I was.

So, I've decided to start over. I've deleted my old account and its bad rep to start afresh: to turn over a new leaf and begin anew.

To all the people I hurt, insulted, and demeaned over the years as 628: I want to apologize for my actions, and promise to try and become a better person. I did a lot of things back then that I regret now, and had made myself into a pretty rotten person. But I hope to change that and become someone better. I wish to bury the hatchet and start over, and I hope that I will do better by you guys this time around.

To all my friends who stuck beside me all these years: Thank you for staying my friend, even when it meant putting up with my bullshit. I don't think I'd be anywhere here on DA without you all, and I hope I become a better friend to you all.

To all my previous followers: Sorry for suddenly dropping off the face of the earth, and thank you. You guys are the reason I do what I do, and I will continue to make content. I will reupload some of my newer works from my old channel (works that don't carry the weight of my old channel), and I hope that my new content will continue to please and entertain you.

Goodbye Tyraka628. It's been a crazy ride.

Let's NOT do it again.

And here's hoping to becoming a better person as TyrakaReborn
