Queen Mary Shows Ninten the Wisdom of the World - by kenisu3000

Queen Mary Shows Ninten the Wisdom of the World




Here's another image that has been haunting me ever since I completed EarthBound Zero six years ago. It is strange, since this never actually happens in the game, but I always had an image of some added scene where Queen Mary takes Ninten out to the castle balcony and philosophizes about the stars in the sky. Of course, it's assumed that night does indeed fall in Magicant. Anyway, when I finally, FINALLY bought the Mother 1 soundtrack (re-issued) earlier this year, I fell in love with the song "Wisdom Of The World", which only served as backup for my mental image of this mysterious scene.
You may notice that Ninten isn't wearing his hat. that's only out of respect since he's in the presence of this enigmatic queen from some time-forgotten dimension. Also take a good look at the central emblem on Queen Mary's pendant. It's God's Tail, the rock that warps Ninten into Magicant.

It wasn't until I gave James the line "Why did you bring the boy?" that I realized I must have unconsciously designed him after James "Jimmy" Stewart (the line reminded me of the movie "Shenandoah", where Stewart refers to his own son as "the boy", when speaking to his wife's grave after a huge mess of tragedy happens to the family - he names off everyone in his family that was killed, and since his son was sent into the Civil War against his will, Stewart's character had not heard anything of him for years, and so he adds to his wife "...and probably the boy..."

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for: after three years of going without his headwear, Ninten FINALLY puts his cap on!

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.

Sometimes I feel a little awkward when I write characters doing, with ease, something I have immense difficulty with in real life. In this case, it's having a phone conversation. I have (just the image of being handed the receiver makes me shudder), and speaking to members of my own family is still no exception. Yeah, I know, I'm a psychiatrist's dream patient.
On another note, I knew this page and the next few were going to come out looking one-sided, even while I was doing the sketches for them a good year and a half ago, because we hear (well, read) both ends of the phone line, but only see Ninten's side. So I tried my best to make the visuals the least bit boring as possible without distracting from the dialogue, by making Ninten fidget and make an occasional face. And there's also going to be some visual flashbacks coming up, so Ninten won't have to be in every single frame.
