Still looked better than blue... yours looks like a raindrop.
When you say it's a reference to Big Boo, I'm assuming you actually mean Big Blue Boo, the secret boss from Mario World? Because regular Big Boos are the same colour as regular Boos... but even Big Blue Boo was only tinted blue, not actually completely blue. He's a whitish shade of blue.
Having a ghost as dark a shade as you have King Boo there stops him looking like a ghost at all. He just looks... like a water monster.

Hmm... I have Mario Party 4, but I don't remember that. Haven't played in years, though.
I'm not sure what you mean by "over-the-top", but I think you're being oversensitive. One thing I've noticed about you, not just from talking to you, but reading your responses to other peoples' critiques of your work, is that you don't take criticism well. You tend to either ignore it and pretend it never happened, or try to justify the problem without actually dealing with it.
You don't always do it, I have seen you take peoples' suggestions a bunch of times, like in your game ideas thread. I'm not trying to attack your ideas, I'm just throwing in ideas that I think would improve your work. You've improved a lot since you started doing this, but even the greatest artists have room for improvement, and everyone benefits from creative input from other artists. That's why video games have such large design teams!

Nice pics. I gotta ask whether you have any plans to do punch-out characters and whether you'll do the classics or their more modern appearances (eg Super Macho Man with gold tooth, tan, gray pony-tail or the original NES sprite (not from ringside pic) where he has black long hair with paler skin.)?

Hmmmmmmm. I understand this completely now. When it's something that I pretty much know of where I've gone wrong, it's not too bad and I take anything else into account. But when it's something of a far more trivial nature (such as many of the things that people here debate about a lot), things just get way too complicated from there (I even had to give up on my ideal Smash Bros., because it's....you know, too much to get through). The whole game ideas thing was just a way of showing off what it is I can come up with for future games. I didn't mind if anyone read them or not, just as long as I put them up, and that was plenty.
You haven't seen my previous collection I did of these. And you're better off not seeing anything older of it. Even now, these aren't really the greatest, I'll admit, but still a whole lot better than before.
Regiwi, I'm not entirely familiar with Punch-Out myself, sorry about that. But you know, you can think of this as some sort of "dream trophy collection" for another Smash Bros. game.

I used to not be so interested in them, and (believe it or not) I actually liked Bowser Jr. more. BUT, thanks to New SMB Wii, my interest in them is slowly being rejuvenated. Just gotta wait for those artworks of them and they're all set.
Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.
Aug 25, 2020 10:19:20 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.
Aug 25, 2020 11:51:55 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.
Aug 27, 2020 18:35:05 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

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.
