Goomba’s Shoe for the Twitter Mario collab! One of the most fun powerups ever, it always saddened me that it was only in one level of one game (not counting the Japanese Mario Advance 4 e-card levels we didn’t get, its Sticker Star appearance, and the ice skate in the new game). I was kind of intimidated when I saw some of the other entries because I draw so simply and everyone else’s drawings were amazing but I figured I should just be myself and not worry about it since it’s such a large project with many different styles.
Decided to redraw one of the Melody and Liz sketches I did the other night because I thought it was cute
It’s almost sweater time.
Autumn seems like it’s creeping up fast this year so instead of resisting it, I drew this little…pumpkin girl thing that kind of ended up looking like an Animal Crossing character. Looking at it now, I think I should have given her a sweater instead.
Here are my little Ninten and Ana busts from that ask last night now on their own for reblogging and what have you.
Okay! Finally added a Kirby banner to the rotation on my blog! Not really sure why I went with video game parodies when the blog is called “Niko Is Cartoons,” but…whatever.
It’s been feeling like summer the past few days so I did a quick summer-related drawing. Uh…sort of. There was probably a better theme I could have picked, I don’t know why watermelon was the first thing to come to mind.
Added one more banner to the rotation at the top of my blog, obligatory Earthbound-based one. I had wanted to do it for a while but didn’t have fonts for either the Mother or Earthbound logos, but then I remembered I had the one for Lumine Hall which I thought would actually be more interesting.
I’m hoping to change up the theme to my blog entirely because it’s always seemed to load pretty slowly, but I’m kind of afraid to because I don’t want to mess anything up. I need to do my main website even more though…
There’s something about Porky that’s very unsettling to me. Giygas is creepy and all, but you fight him and you’re done. Porky…lingers. And I’ll tell you why it bothers me.
Everyone had that stupid neighbor kid who lived down the street who you didn’t like but you played with him anyway, either because your mom made you or because he was the only one around. He was a brat. He cheated at hide-and-seek, he told blatant lies, he erased all your files when you lent him a video game, and he always got his way.
Porky is the embodiment of that kid…plus limitless power. I don’t know about you guys, but for some reason, the thought of that is horrifying to me. I mean, I like Porky as a character. But man, when I think about his actual story, how he’s this little parasite of a kid who is literally invincible, it’s downright scary. And while I was looking for references of him for this drawing, I saw a quote from Itoi himself along the lines of Porky still being around millions of years from now even after the sun dies out and the world ends. That’s a terrifying thought.
