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?!

This is my homage to the image that I attribute as my very first impression of EarthBound Zero/Mother 1. Years back, before I even began playing it, I came across the image on the back of the Mother 1 soundtrack on this site (when it was still Earthbound.net), and it still haunts me to this day. Three years after playing through the game, I found out that it was actually a screencap from an old commercial aired on Japanese TV when the game was first released in 1989. That took away a big chunk of the mystery surrounding my enrapturement of this image (it was a "the magic is gone" sort of experience), but I will forever treasure this as the one icon to represent everything the first Mother game symbolizes.
Albeit I changed it from the exact image to a few moments before, when Lloyd points to the glowing summit of Holy Loly.

Not Mark II... Mark I!
Oddly enough, the post I uploaded this to in the forum got a downvote. Apparently, someone has a childhood trauma involving Jack-in-the-Boxes (well, I know *I* do, but...).
