I'm actually trying to draw characters that are fairly easy, but not too easy. I chose Yoshi because his geometry is not really that complicated. In this case, I looked at official art from Yoshi's Island as a reference. His head was, by far, the easiest part to draw. Everything else I had a hard time with, but I think that had more to do with the angle I was attempting. If I had done a direct profile, it probably would've been much easier (but a lot less interesting).
And yeah, you can expect some Star Fox stuff sooner or later.

Heh. Well, thanks, Man-Frog.
I guess like any artist, I'm my own worst critic. Not that I consider myself a true artist.
The reason I claim I can't draw is because I have a very limited range. I've been sticking with fairly easy things here (I was surprised that other people thought Yoshi was hard to draw), but there are a lot of things I legitimately can't draw. For instance, I've never been able to draw Link. Whenever I try, it always ends up looking like some random, poorly drawn character wearing Link's clothes.
But maybe I'm improving a little. That's why I'm doing this after all!
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
