Whose Hat is This? Coloring Book Title Page




whohat - #01
Last month, my church was doing a service project for the local crisis center, and they asked me to illustrate a coloring book for the kids. By this time, I was already deeply immersed in my "Mother" comic series for the site, and I knew from past experience that if I sidetracked myself, I might never get back around to the comic. I also knew that even if I illustrated this coloring book, my heart just wouldn't be in it unless it was something that I felt very close to. So, instead of throwing together some goofy little "See Spot Run" thing, I decided to take a tiny piece of the storyline from Mother 1 (that is, when Ninten and Lloyd bring Anna her hat) and kiddify it for all it's worth.
The irony of it all is, now there's probably a handful of kids in my hometown running around with their crayons scribbling in a coloring book based on a retro Nintendo game that never made it outside of Japan. And they don't even know it. I've brainwashed the children... :)

PERFECT 10! The score will say 1.10, but it's actually 10.

A Buzz-Buzz drawing done for the Interpretation dealie that Mystic Pyro Freak has set up. That's the Sound Stone he's... umm, levitating (note the sound wavelength spanning the stone's main face), although this was before I became aware that the stone is supposed to look like a rainbow-colored conch shell (a'la the EB Zero Magicant houses or the God's Tail rocks). Big deal, I guess... I've always thought of it as a flat, shale-like stone, so that's how I'm presenting it.

Ah, it's good to begin Chapter 1 at last. I pulled a genuine, classic college all-nighter to finish this one. Anyway, it's anyone's guess as to why Ninten, an all-American boy, is reading a Japanese-language manga. Also, I'm beginning to question if it really was a good idea to give Mick (the family dog) the ability to stand on his hind legs as his sprite in the game seems to suggest.

Sorry about how pale the colors are and everything... up until now, I've been using the superb scanners at my university, but now that I'm home from college, my so-so standard scanner will have to do.
My winks to the 80's continue. Basically, I'm giving Ninten the sort of fandom that I was into back then (although I was 6 in 1988, whereas Ninten is supposed to be 12, so I have to take each medium's target age into account), and Garfield and ALF were just two of the things I remember the 80's for. As for the San Francisco Giants, I've never been much of a sports fans at all, but I'm really milking the Encyclopedia MOTHER for all it's worth to bring out Ninten's personality.

I tried a different approach to shading this time: up until now, I did all the shading with my Dark Brown colored pencil, regardless of the value of the color I'd be shading. Since that has proven to be a rather ineffective method, I got several suggestions to shade using a darker value of the color I'm shading. Since I don't have that big of a variety of colored pencils, I instead did all the shading on the computer by using the "darken" tool. Please feel free to give me your responses on this so that I know whether to continue with it or what.
