Chapter 1 - Page 31: A Gasp of Relief?




kenisu - #31
...My scanner is beginning to severely weird me out, what with how fitful it gets.
Anyway. what shall I say here? Let's start with the first panel - I like to call it the "SMAAAASH!!" panel (get it? Splash panel? Smash panel? Heh heh, heh... aww, never mind). I tried my best to recreate the "SMAAAASH!!" logo directly from the game, but holy crap, I never imagined it would be so difficuly, what with the way the angle curves back what with each progressive letter. I'm not so sure how well it works anyway, because I wanted at least two letter "A"s completely out in the open, and not blocked by Ninten's fat head. Instead I wound up with a couple of them half-hidden. Drat. Oh well, everything else turned out pretty much *exactly* how I had imagined it, and THAT, friends, is a good day! Except Ninten seems to resemble Charlie Brown here, what with the angle I chose for his nose - but MOTHER has a lot of Peanuts references anyway.
I also decided to establish Ninten's asthma here. Also, it looks like Minnie and Mimmie are still playing butt tag :) How long WAS that staircase anyway?!

kenisu3000 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... :)

kenisu3000 The Dragon of Darkness Awakens
In Mother 3, there's a huge mess revolving around the "Dragon of Darkness", but even at the end of the game, we never get to see him/her/it. Well, we do get to see a huge black "breathing" mass which MIGHT be the Dragon (in the shot with all those tornadoes, I believe), but that's unclear.
Well, one evening about two weeks or so ago, I discovered the rare Evanescence song "Before The Dawn", and when I heard it, I felt it would fit perfectly with the destruction of the world at the end of Mother 3. And then, this breathtaking image just flew into my mind. I saw the Dragon (I had no clear idea what I wanted it to look like, albeit I knew I wanted it slender and very nocturnal-looking) standing atop the ending world, staring at a crescent moon as though it could reach out and grasp it.
So, I cooked up a preliminary sketch for the Dragon of Darkness (it was a sidelong view... I might submit that if sitegoers wish to see that as well), and got to work on a full-page mind-to-paper translation of this fantastic image. I used so much permanent marker for the black expanse of space, however, that the drawing still gives off fumes to this day and gets anyone nearby high as a cloud :)

kenisu3000 Sucks to be Lloyd
Heh, Lloyd’s head even kinda looks like a butt in that last panel there.

Ahem.
