Baby Elora Comic by maniacaldude Baby Elora Comic by maniacaldude
Back when I did that drawing of Elora from Spyro 2 as a baby, I was thinking of something else I could use her for, so I came up with this cute little comic idea depicting what I think Elora's first encounter with an orb (an important collectable in Spyro 2) would be like. And of course, I had to throw the (slightly younger) Professor in there as well.

Elora has always fascinated me. She looks nothing like the fauns in Fracture Hills or Magma Cone. (Well, okay, she RESEMBLES the fauns in Fracture Hills, but she still looks completely different from them.) In fact, character designer Oliver Wade mentioned that she was originally going to be a centaur, but I guess they made her a faun because of game memory or something, I forgot what it was. Either way, that still doesn't explain the strange fox tail she has. I can't help but wonder about her background, both in-game and out. Like, where did she come from? Who are her parents? That sort of thing. It sucks that Insomniac wasn't able to do much with her since the rights to the characters were given to another company and she had pretty much faded into obscurity. Thankfully, there are people like Razz and I who remember her...

About the comic itself, this was originally going to be just a blue sketch and digital ink work, but my brother suggested coloring it in, so I decided to give it a shot. As you can tell, this is another one where nearly everything was done in Photoshop.

Something that I just realized is that, even though I've drawn and submitted quite a few fan art drawings of the Spyro games, I haven't gotten around to submitting one with Spyro himself. I'll need to remedy that at some point...

Elora, Professor (c) Insomniac Games
Spyro (c) Activision or whoever the hell is owning him now...

Actually the fauns in fracture hills are "satyrs" if I recall correctly, the difference between a faun and a satyr being somewhat blurry I think a faun is half human half deer while a satyr is half human and half goat.

Also good comic, I loved it. XD

Thanks. What all did you like about it?

From what I remember, there were both fauns AND satyrs in Fracture Hills.

occasionally, like right now unfortunately, I have trouble being descrptive, what I like it about at it's base is the huge NOOOO by the professor, only to find out that he just wants to clean the orb.

As for Fracture hills, yes I think you're right: the Males were called Satyrs and the females were called Fauns.

Also if you've seen Seeraphine's Spyro comic she has Elora in it though her personality is a little different. (somewhat understandably as the comic is TLOS.)
Also TokoWH did a wonderfu 2-part Valentines day story that revolves around Ember x Spyro x Elora that isn't cliched as hell nor does it involve a catfight between Ember and Elora.

I think he was reacting to the baby faun trying to gnaw and suck on the orb like it's a giant piece of candy, and he's just wiping off the drool.

Or to be more precise, the fauns were the yo-yo twirlers and the satyrs were the bagpipe players.
