"Let me tell you why I’m so great."
This is a commission I did a while ago for somebody who was really hoping Shulk would get into the new Smash Brothers.
Guess they were right! I still know absolutely nothing about him but he’s got some fun looking gimmicks.
There’s some decent stuff in this picture I think but yes, his face is kind of weird.
Okay so I don’t really want to condone this “leaking” for the new Smash Bros games but I did happen across some of the screenshots and noticed:
Bowser Jr. seems to be playable while inside a small Koopa clown car. Okay, I’m not a fan of the character but that seems like a pretty fun an original concept. Then one of the trophies shows Larry in a small clown car.
Could all of the Koopa Kids be alternate “costumes”!? If you’re effectively playing as the clown car then the moveset would be the same no matter who’s driving…!?
The Carnival Elements
An incredibly elusive and dangerous band of miscreants, Mangxo, Trinko, Ludo and Premio are beings that personify the four major aspects of all the best galas; Food, Drink, Games and Prizes respectively.
Individually they’re troublesome, but together they’re a disaster of ceremony!
[Not to Scale]
Multistorus: A creature which is half dinosaur, half multi-storey car park. Its “car breath” is as dangerous and ridiculous as it sounds.
Engineer Erzulie: Foreman Frigg’s mysterious superior. She keeps designing buildings but somehow they never get built?
Spydra: Anybody intending to meet Erzulie will have to avoid the watchful gaze of this camera headed hydra. Or just smash its lenses.
Abominable Snowcrab: I have already shown off this guy and I still haven’t come up with a better name for him! (Although admittedly “Irrelephant” is pretty diabolical.) Lives on a glacier and is none too pleased to find an icebreaker muscling in on his territory.
Abominature: A horrible creature of the desert who reacts badly to the oil drilling in the area.
'King Moth: It’s a pun, I promise you. Him and his troops, attrached by the lights, descend on a quarry in order to make it their new kingdom,
Okay where was I:
Irrelephant: Encountered in - Parade Route. The purple humanoid elephant who shoots bullets from his schnozz is one of my oldest concepts so it was nice to finally shoehorn him into something!
Styxhift: Encountered in - Downtown. Probably one of my favourite designs from the Mascot troupe, this demon taxi has to keep clicking his gearstick eye around his ridiculous engine to keep sight of you!
Upsidine: Encountered in - Custard Pie Factory. AKA, the Lady of the Cake, she is as deadly as she is delicious. Of course, if you don’t like custard then she’s probably not very deadly after all.
Already these ones are a bit out of date, I’ve since made Tokos’ hat more like a hat and less like a second head.
Tokos: Owner and proprietor of the “Cock-a-Treats” kebab van, this master chef can make all manner of unsuspicious recipes using unsuspicious ingredients.
Luggit & Sackem: A pair of hard nosed delivery men who are getting a little sick of all the unpaid overtime at the construction company.
Dr. Pfaffenberg: This goofy inventor is almost finished with the DREAD: Dynamic Reverse Engineered Action Device. What it does is anyone’s guess.
Like many people I now understand the value of not being too precious with your ideas and designs, but I never truly forget about them; There’s always a way they can have new life breathed into them!
