You know, lately I’ve been slowly slipping back into the Mario fandom… You know, from those Nintendo videogames. And heck, I’ve got the biggest crush on Luigi. <3
I used to draw these guys begin last year almost every day, so I basically tried drawing them again to see if I still had my ‘skills’.
Nice to see some more drawings from you, Badger! Judging by those character drawings for your story, I’m starting to like your story already. A vampire squirrel? Nice idea! Pretty original too! The drawing style from both of these drawings reminds me of those Neopets characters, too, but it looks really good! Keep it going with your story, and hopefully you can find somegood mythical names for your creatures, too.
As for your forecoming return to Mario fandom, let me be the first to say, “Welcome back to the dark side!” (kidding! ) Nice job on the two Mario drawings, but I especially like the one with Luigi in it, because, it not only has an unique type of drawing style that I haven’t seen done with Mario characters, but it is friggin’ hilarious! Mario’s expression is just priceless! Great job, Badger, and keep on drawing, too!
xD Lol… the squirrel guy actually IS a Neopet. xDDDD But he’s also an original character of mine. I draw him less squirrel-like whenever I make a picture of him for Neopets.
Thanks! Yeah, I do really like how that Mario&Luigi pic came out. However the second pic with only Mario is not good, IMO, It’s about three two years old! D:
I absolutely ADORE the Conker games, and ‘the art of’ books, so I thought it’d be a fun idea to make a fanproject called ‘The Art of Conker’.
However, I wouldn’t advise googling Conker if you can’t handle blood, excessive swearing, and suggestive humour… he’s kinda vulgar. But I LOVE HIM gah
You know, I like the Mario games. A lot. Like nobody knew that by now… but anyway, I just recently drew Luigi. Again. With a Boo. (You know, those little ghosts.) But… it may be different than you’d think. fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/ … edebie.png
Although, it did remind me of this guy’s work. Is this just coincidence, or were you inspired?
Anyway, I really like your take! Especially with the Rat Creature wanting a taste of Luigi!
Can I ask you a question? How did you make the background for your deviant ID ‘disappear’ on your profile? As in, the characters look like they’re part of the profile page, with a non-existent/transparent background. I’d love to know how to do that, so they’re just ‘floating’ on the page, and not in a box with the usual white background.
Lol yeah it does look a lot like that… must be a coincidence. xD;
If you right-click on the eraser in Photoshop, you’ll see an eraser with a * next to it. Use that on the background of anything that’s white, then save as PNG. I hope that helps, I fail epically at explaining ^^;
I just found out how to make animations with Photoshop. The result? This… thing.
AWWWHUHHH 8’D Luigi’s faces in the Mario pic djfskd <3 You draw them so cute!
I meant to comment on these, especially the one you posted just before this, but I dunno, I either got sidetracked or busy… that happens a lot. ^^; skdfjsdk Toothless + Dug = adorableness to the maxx. I haven’t seen HtTYD yet, but homygosh I want to sooo bad. D: (I’m trying to convince my parents to let me and my sibs go see it tomorrow night! mneheh ) Your ability to draw animals and other animal-ish creatures is makin’ me JELUS oyes. >8C Haha, jk, you are really good at this stuff, I wish I could draw animals that good - let alone draw them at all!
I’m really sorry for the spazzy comment, I’m really hyper right now and I just love these. <3 Oh god how come I do not watch you on dA right now…??
I’ve mentioned this on dA, but I really love your rendering of Toothless! Details like the ‘scales’ and the wooden tail-wing really show you paid attention. How’d you do the background? I assume it was a custom brush (since it looks like a repeated pattern)? Oh, and nice work on Dug too, I like his crouching pose.
Heh, animals are practically all I draw. That is, until I tried drawing Mario characters three years ago. It failed. Then Up came along and I drew some characters as well. xD And now it’s Mario and co. again and I’ve been drawin’ 'em like crazy. I FAIL at anything that looks remotely human. xD So eh, now I’ve been drawing the dragons from How To Train Your Dragon. I’m also considering to try and draw Hiccup once but I’ll wait for a bit…
The background on my Dug and Toothless pic were some standard Photoshop tools, or something similar. Recently I’ve also been abusing filters like crazy. xD
