S and JL - RR - Final by xFlowerstarx

/ / ©2010-2015 xFlowerstarx
Final version of the poster/front cover of my Spyro/American Dragon fanfiction crossover, "Spyro & Jake Long: Ripto's Revenge". The main reason why Spyro and Jake were large 'cause they are the main heroes of the story. :) Out of the four characters, Spyro was the hardest to shade in 'cause his appearance has a lot of details, due to his underbelly, horns and tail. :frustrated: But despite that, I'm happy with how the picture turns out. :D I'm not sure if I coloured in Ripto correctly, I can't even tell if he's orange or red so I used a variety of reds and oranges. Originally, there WAS gonna be a Chinese character which means "dragon" which will be written somewhere but there's no room, unfortunately. :(

Materials: Pencil, rubber, pencil sharpener, My Melody colour pencils, black fineliner

Time Taken: 9 days 30+ hours

Listened to: "Empire State of Mind" by Jay-Z feat. Alicia Keys from the music video

Classic, Artisan Spyro, Sparx and Ripto Insomniac Games or any of the creators who own them

Jake Long/American Dragon Jeff Goode and Disney

Let me say I've seen the modern version yesterday, and let's say both rock. It's a fantastic crossover! :D

I might be planning on writing an official song fanfiction based on my crossover fanfiction in the future. The official American Dragon: Jake Long promo which featured the song, "Empire State Of Mind" by Jay-Z feat. Alicia Keys, inspired me. On Fanfiction.net, "Spyro & Jake Long: Ripto's Revenge", still remains as the most popular fanfiction out of all of my stories and it still currently has 15 chapters, 87,396 words and 133 reviews. I haven't updated it since 30th September 2010. I first submitted the fanfiction on 14th July 2007.

Originally, I was intending on bringing the crossover back last year in celebration of the Year of the Dragon but unfortunately, I was too occupied with other things that I changed my mind.

But the possible, upcoming song fanfiction will have to wait until after the 21st June.

Quite popular, let me say. And come to believe your writing skills have improved ever since you've started writing/uploading the story, haven't you? I wish I could do something similar on the future.

Are you planning to bring back this crossover some time after submitting your upcoming songfic?

My debut fanfiction, "A Mario Birthday Party" (circa 2005), used to be the most popular fanfiction out of all of my stories until my crossover fanfiction, "Spyro & Jake Long: Ripto's Revenge", has eventually caught up with it but it took countless years for the crossover to catch up.

Well, after watching so many American Dragon: Jake Long episodes on Youtube, I got some motivation back.

Yep. :nod: I've been on a rollercoaster ride, going from one fanfiction to another and throughout the years, my writing has improved. Back in the good ol' days of 2005 and 2006, my writing was simple, straight to the point, less detailed and less elaborate. Now, it's detailed, well-written and it has improved in many ways that you cannot even imagine.

And what's your opinion about foreigners who always intend to improve their writing skills in English? You can 'judge' my skills, for example.

Your English is fine but sometimes you make mistakes or typos. I'm not sure about your grammar, though.

Thanks! ;) :thanks: Spyro is most likely the hardest to do 'cause of his proportion and the details I had to do as well as shading him in. The poster is the official poster of my :iconoldspyroplz:/American Dragon: Jake Long fanfiction crossover, "Spyro & Jake Long: Ripto's Revenge. It currently has 115 reviews and 15 chapters.

The preview version isn't coloured, by the way.

Thanks for the comment and another :+fav:! ;) :thanks:

You'll understand why I did this poster in the first place when you read the actual crossover itself. They are my favourite dragons too, as soon as I noticed a lot of similarities between them, I wanted to do a crossover about them. On Fanfiction.net, it's already a massive hit amongst the readers, reviewers and fans. :D Currently, it has 15 chapters and 114 reviews, finally surpassing my debut fanfiction, "A Mario Birthday Party". :) The only thing the crossover is behind on is the amount of hits/story views it's got.

Somewhere in my artist's comment, there is a link to the crossover.

There is a preview version of the official poster but it's not coloured.

Yep, they are my favourite dragons too! :nod: :D Plus, they have a lot in common and a lot of similarities. I have an unfinished drawing of Spyro and Jake skateboarding but it's only Jake I'm trying to finish drawing. I have a feeling Spyro will be the hardest to sketch and colour in. Anyhoo, the crossover's still on a haitus until I finish writing the final version of my GCSE English assignment and the first chapter of the remake of 'Mario and Luigi: Eternal Slumber'.

That's cool! Spyro skateboarded in Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Is Jake skateboarding in human form or dragon form? Either way, it'll be an awesome drawing!;)

It's Jake skateboarding in human form, I can't find a reference or a picture of him skateboarding in his dragon form. The fanart won't be another official "Spyro & Jake Long: Ripto's Revenge" poster but it is something to do with the crossover.
