I saw pxelprince do this a little while back and I wanted to do the same. I started, but then I ended up making like a 5-page list, it was pretty ridiculous. Even limiting myself, I come up with a lot of great memories of great places in great games. I tried to make sure I only took one level from each game (because many I could choose several) and I also tried to include more than just the basic Mario, Kirby, and Mega Man games to show I play more than just that. I put a lot of arbitrary restrictions on these things for something I imposed on myself. But anyway, I’ve tried to keep this as short as I can by just listing levels that really stick out in my mind, whether because they were fun, looked nice/had good music, or I have good memories of playing them. Here they are, in no particular order
Target Terror in Donkey Kong Country 2
Sirena Beach in Super Mario Sunshine
Sand Canyon in Kirby’s Dreamland 3
Rope Bridge Rumble in Donkey Kong Country
Wendy’s House in Snowboard Kids 2
The Water Temple in Ocarina of Time (for real, I like it!)
Shadow Man’s stage in Mega Man 3
Just Plains in Wario Land: Shake It
What’s Gusty Taste Like? in Yoshi’s Island
Tiny Huge Island in Super Mario 64
Casino Night Zone in Sonic 2
Gusty Garden Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy
Spiral Tower in Bomberman Hero
Southern Island in Wave Race 64
Bowser’s Castle in Paper Mario
Storm Eagle’s stage in Mega Man X

Rainbow Road in Mario Kart 64
X-Naut Base in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
I never try to be but I always end up in the communities because I can’t shut up about stuff.
Haha, I can’t shut up either usually, but I guess I just kind of stick to tumblr and twitter and make the collective public listen to me instead of actually talking directly with people who enjoy the same stuff.
I’ve never gotten into a fandom on like…a community level before, but lately I find myself wanting to do that and feeling embarrassed/not knowing how other than running up to someone and going “HI I LIKE THING TOO” and then scaring them off.
if i as a retail worker have to work with a dozen cameras pointed at me to deter me from stealing $10, cops should have to work with a camera pointed at them to deter them from arbitrarily maiming and killing people
I think it’s hilarious, in a terrible way. It’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen but also one of the funniest. I mean, there are bad, corny movies out there, but there’s something about The Room that’s special. I think it’s the fact that it’s almost a one-man project by Tommy and also that it doesn’t even have any sort of coherent story. The first time I watched it was with a friend (who had already seen it) and my brother and we were just dying because it kept taking turns and introducing stuff out of nowhere. And then we watched the “special features” where they interviewed him or something and he seriously just spews nonsense. It’s absolutely amazing, I’ve never seen anything else like it
Now that the Smash Bros leak is confirmed as true, which character are you most excited to play with?
Uh…well, I’m happy Ness is back for sure and he’s my favorite of the reveals, but since he’s not a newcomer, I guess Bowser Jr.? Honestly I don’t really like Bowser Jr. as a character in the Mario series. Never have, he’s a worthless, replaceable face in the franchise. That being said, I think it’s cool that they didn’t just straight up plop him in and instead gave him his little clown car, so he does have that uniqueness going for him
I guess I can respond to all these as a batch. The replies were from a few days ago, and I guess the messages were scattered throughout the week. But anyway, thank you guys so, so much. I really appreciate your concern, compliments, and friendship. I’m still not doing so hot. I’m better than I was the day I had a breakdown, but I’m still going back and forth and I definitely need to make some major changes in my life. But taking a break from the internet didn’t really hurt or help the situation, and I ended up coming back out of sheer loneliness (which is a big part of my depression to boot). This means a lot to me though, I’m sorry I can’t be happier/stronger for you guys.
I saw your cartoons on deviant art years ago, they were pretty cool. interesting finding you on tumblr randomly. I'm glad to see you are still making things, and I'm excited to see what you come up with in the future!
Thank you! I had been on DA since 2003 (across two different accounts) but I kind of got annoyed with the people on there and the community in general so I just left it behind in favor of posting all my art here. But honestly, since I left, I haven’t done anything new that’s major. I still draw all the time, but I haven’t made any new animated cartoons or anything since I left. I’ve just pretty much been developing some new characters and ideas. Hopefully that will change soon though!
hello, grettings for venezuela, i have a little question for you, I'm starting to be a cartoonist, but I wonder if can you recommend me some book on the basic principles of cartooning ?, thanks
Unfortunately, I don’t know of anything I could recommend you. You might be able to just search for cartooning books online, but it’s kind of hit and miss because a lot of “how to draw” books are completely worthless and don’t actually teach you to develop your own style. Some people have tipped me off to books in the past but sadly I don’t have any of them written down or anything still. I never followed through with it because personally, I don’t learn well that way. I pretty much taught myself just by practicing and observing other cartoons. I can’t speak for you or anyone else though, everyone learns differently. Sorry I can’t be of more help!
