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.

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.

I love putting little nuances and inside jokes into my art. Here, on page 3, the bench the two boys are sitting on has an advertisement for Mach Pizza ("We deliver, and that's all!"). Of course, if you want to nitpick, that's a reference to Mother 2, but... hey, Mother is Mother.
Also, notice how quick Ke- err, Ninten is to agree to go to Snowman. I bet he's a good little boy who helps old ladies like her across the street. He's really got that "stand-up leadership" thing going for him.

I might have gone a little too dark on the shading here. It makes it difficult to follow the artwork, and it might take away from my little joke in the middle of the page - it's the whole reason why I included the Garfield poster, was for that sight gag. In fact, it wasn't until I had come up with the idea that I realized how similiar the image was to the same scene in Strawberry Tofu's Crying For MOTHER. Sorry about that, Strawberry - I didn't mean it! Anyway, the Garfield poster was one that I had when I was 13 (one of those "Enter At Your Own Risk" ones with bullet holes in the wall behind Garfield), so I thought I'd bring it back for a little joke.

More goodness from the Encyclopedia MOTHER. I'm so out of the loop as far as sports goes that I had to look up Shigeo Nagashima on that Internet Bible known as Wikipedia, just to make sure I got the information correct. One strange thing I found out was that his team is called the Tokyo Giants in the Encyclopedia, but Wikipedia calls them the Yomiuri Giants. It's all Greek to me.
From the very first time I started orchestrating this battle, I knew I wanted Ninten to realize that... "umm.... I'm talking to a lamp....", and then get smacked in the face. Of course, what I was originally going to have him say after that was "Never let your guard down around maniacal electric stands" (because the enemy's Japanese name, Denki Stand, translates out to that), but then I found out that denki can mean "lamp" as well as "electricity".
And that last panel... don't ask me where that came from :) I started getting funny ideas, one after the other, and it evolved into one of those dramatic "tumbleweed" scenes. WHERE the wind came from is anyone's guess, but I knew I had to have an article of clothing tumbling across the room for humorous effect. And it landed on tighty-whiteys! Underwear is always funny.
