Y’know, I haven’t done much in the way of full-fledged Photoshop art, so I decided to give it a whirl. I’m such a novice at it right now, though, that this took me waaaay longer than if I had just done the whole thing in colored pencils. Although I did use colored pencils for the clouds, smoke, and airborne dust.

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... :)

Okay, so Page 8 was nothing compared to Page 9. It IS a little disturbing to see a couple of little kids chased down by a bunch of savage carnivores, but then again, in the Bible, Elijah (or Elisha... one o' thems) turned 42 she-bears on a group of kids because they called him Baldy.
As for Page 10, I tried to recreate the landscape directly from the game as you enter Snowman, right down to the position of the NPCs. However, I added a snowman (because... well, if the place is called Snowman, you need a snowman!!). Those structures in the near distance that look like cake or gingerbread... those are the low-hanging cliffs that overlook the town.
