Chapter 1 - Page 58: Of Oreos and Hocus-Pocus

I've always felt the livingroom was awfully... stark. I designed it similar to what's seen in the game, knowing full well how bland and... I dunno, threadbare(?) it looked, but I wanted to keep it that way, just for a laughable throwback to the simple 8-bit design of the game. But dang, after drawing and coloring all these pages, it seems to me that I should have at least succumbed to wallpaper, windows and a light fixture! What kind of psycho house -doesn't- have windows around its front door? And without those windows or an immediate light source aside from the kitchen window, how could it be so bright indoors? That's the price of adhering 100% to the game's design for the house's exterior first, THEN putting together the interior. You look at the inner layout and realize it doesn't conform to the outer structure at all. In the game, the front door, as seen from the the livingroom, is brown and square at the top, with no built-in window, but outside, it's gray with a rounded top and window, AND the doorknob's on the wrong side! So I changed it to fit the outside appearance. At least that's one claim to consistency I can make.

I need a life.

Ugh, how I hate drawing crowd scenes. Fortunately, as this page only shows a few crowd extras, I was able to get by without losing too much sanity, but... the next page...

This is one of those times when I kinda wish I had gone with the EB Zero town/area names instead of the names from MOTHER. "Holy Loly Mountain" sounds just plain silly, and doesn't convey the sense of horror and majesty that "Mt. Itoi" does.

Yeesh, that musta been one heck of a backhand the sheriff delivered, to keep George out cold ALL THE WAY to and halfway up Holy Loly Mountain.
Anyway, I love that last panel. I grabbed my copy of the MOTHER 1+2 official guidebook and illustrated the map layout of the lake section of the mountain; and that off in the distance is the mountain peak. A severely important thing will happen on that peak in the distant future...

I had been looking forward to this page ever since I started the prologue. It's all about the plot buildup!!

kenisu3000 Chapter 1 - Page 25: Meet Ninten
kenisu - #25
Ah, it's good to begin Chapter 1 at last. I pulled a genuine, classic college all-nighter to finish this one. Anyway, it's anyone's guess as to why Ninten, an all-American boy, is reading a Japanese-language manga. Also, I'm beginning to question if it really was a good idea to give Mick (the family dog) the ability to stand on his hind legs as his sprite in the game seems to suggest.
