Some new-old Spyro 2 renders!

Hey all, I actually posted some of these before but my presentation sucked and I didn't post them all. Basically, I got this cool set of Spyro 2 renders from an official source back in 2012, and was unsure whether to release them all, since it actually cost me a little to obtain them and I was kinda in the I-am-having-doubts-about-what-I've-just-spent-money-on stage. =P

But now I've finally completely changed my mind--I mean there's no point to finding this stuff and keeping quiet about it. So here y'all go--a full set of high-res, mostly unseen renders from Spyro 2. Enjoy =3

Also, if anyone wants to cross-post this on the Spyro Reddit for me, please do--they're a nifty piece of Spyro history smile

Re: Some new-old Spyro 2 renders!

Wow! Did someone not notice this? For over a month?! These things are a sight to see! Especially the Spyro beachchair posing one, which I recall seeing in a foreign magazine scan. Will try to spread the word~


In my world, I believe that there are many, many ideas that are waiting to be created; by inspiration, renewing an old idea, or just by accident.

Hey thanks. Yeah I got worried too when this post slipped immediately beneath a new one in the Spyro 2 subforum, sadly not the most bustling place =P

Re: Some new-old Spyro 2 renders!

Thats what the models should look like when proper smoothing is applied to them lol... I guess if they ever released it on PC thats probably what they would look like back in the day. (Not saying that I hate consoles for obvious reasons since it still has most of the best exclusives and I still prefer using a console while sitting on the couch)

Re: Some new-old Spyro 2 renders!

Same thing happened to me. I remember having a reply typed out, and I closed the tab for some reason.

I remember a lot of these from the instructions manual. Most of the enemy ones are new to me, though.

I think this is supposed to be the Fracture Hills fodder, isn't it? I used to always try to avoid killing those because I thought they were cute. This is most definitely not cute. tongue

Re: Some new-old Spyro 2 renders!

Yeah, I think it is. His cute factor definitely took a blow, that said a lot of the other characters look a little creepy as well D=

Well I'm glad y'all finally saw this stuff! I was getting worried they either weren't noticed, or were too disturbingly ugly to comment on =P Thanks Iso for the cross-post on darkSpyro btw!

P.S, the file names on turtle renders are funny. The giant turtle one is called BlockFromIt, the meditating turtle is called WiseFromIt and the little turtle from the cauldron minigame is called SoupFromIt. =P Also the fodder Stormy posted is called CowPig, which is interesting, although there's no guarantee the filenames were chosen by someone who knew the enemy names.

Re: Some new-old Spyro 2 renders!

Wow, those were really neat to see. You rarely see those second and third pictures of Spyro. Especially such large, high quality versions of them. I noticed something strange though. Is it just me, or do those spikes in the beach chair picture look out of place or something? The ones kind of near his right foot that look like they're coming out of the bottom of the chair. The spikes on his tail are facing upward, so I really can't figure out where those are coming from... Lol.

I don't know why. But the muppety character designs seem quintessentially Spyro to me. I hope any upcoming games use the style again.
