artisan dragons

Tyniana of Orthrond, The Glass City

‘Tyniana grew up in a city made mostly of glass in honor of the moon goddess Selune. Left to pursue her dreams she landed in the industrial city of Milestyr and trained under a dwarven master blacksmith named Ti'Del. Tyn became the talented equal of her master. Together they invented the revolver and earned their permanent tenure in the artisans guild. Tyniana decided she had expended all the tinkering knowledge that the continent had to offer, and so she sailed east with only rumors of knowledge to follow…’

Character belongs to & was commissioned by Collin!


Going hand in hand with the different dragon families, here are the flags from the different homeworlds! Another really cool bit of world-building that took me a while to catch onto: each homeworld has their own flag, unique in both shape and design. I tried to really push these differences, emphasizing the materials and style that would fit each homeworld ^u^

From left to right, top to bottom: Artisans, Peace Keepers, Magic Crafters, Beast Makers, and Dream Weavers.


I started to vector the lowpoly Artisans today.

Then I had the idea of turning the art into a postcard layout. Decided to make it with a square format, 10x10 cm. So far it is like this:

The title was made with the original font used in Spyro games, LithosPro Black (was lucky to find out it is available in Typekit).

I will upload the final version as a free download for everyone to use o/ Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions to add. Not sure if I should add something in the back, for example.


I’ve been a Spyro nerd basically my whole life, but it took me a while to catch on to how the different homeworlds have distinct characteristics for their dragons. Horns, head shape, fins, spines; I looove details like that. So here’s some random dragons typifying the Artisans, Peace Keepers, Magic Crafters, Beast Makers and Dream Weavers homeworlds.

I’m torn between Magic Crafters and Beast Makers as my favorite. The four-horns thing is awesome but Beast Makers look like such badasses <3
