If I may, I've noticed in the past that Nintober has generally been villains/minions from Nintendo games, daily through October. And while I do like the idea you have, if I may suggest an alternative? How about, instead of 31 bosses, you did 1 scene? Think about it: First of all, you have a lot more time available to work on the picture, since you have only the one. Second of all, you can't possibly run out, since scenes are kinda unlimited, whereas characters are kinda not. So, like, run a poll throughout September for which series you should draw from, closing it 9/30 or 10/1. Then, use October to draw a scene from a game in the winning series. So, for example, the winner is Zelda in September, so in October, you draw Link wandering around in the Kakariko Well in all of its gory glory (skull piles, bloody walls, undead bad-guys, the works.) Then, Halloween, you release the picture for everyone.
I dunno, just a thought on how to keep it within Nintendo.
It's a sound idea and something I've considered for later artworks. However, it's not the purpose behind Nintober. Nintober is now a personal challenge, and this year the 31 pieces in 31 days will likely be accompanied by various things: Trying to raise money for charity and occasional livestreaming of the drawing (when it's convenient).
So for this year, at least, it will continue from last year. I may not do it again like that.
But drawing scenes from games is something I really want to do in the imminent future!
OK, it's six weeks until Nintober begins, and I've got to make sure I'm well prepared. I need to know what rules I'm setting myself and what will be drawn. Then I can focus on making sure I can record footage of me drawing, because I know you want to watch me draw and mutter to myself for hours, right? ;D
Anyway, I started a list of JUST Nintendo monsters. I am now allowing any that were used in 2008 (so long as they still fit the "scary" rules), including many from the past year's releases.
This is not the final order:
1. Dry Bowser (New Super Mario Bros.) 2. King Boo (Luigi’s Mansion) 3. Mimi (Super Paper Mario) 4. Twinrova (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time) 5. Ganondorf & Ganon (The Legend of Zelda) 6. Demise (The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword) 7. Mother Brain (Metroid) 8. Phantoon (Super Metroid) 9. Marx Soul (Kirby Super Star Ultra) 10. Duskull, Dusklops & Dusknoir (Pokemon Series) 11. Giratina (Pokemon) 12. Medusa (Kid Icarus) 13. Hades (Kid Icarus: Uprising) 14. Giygas (Mother / EarthBound) 15. Gimle (Fire Emblem: Awakening) 16. Zanza (Xenoblade) 17. Zeron (Pandora’s Tower) 18. Zangurak (The Last Story) 19. Dark Lord (StreetPass Quest II) 20. Oni Kawashima (Oni Training)
I will also do 10 "Guest Villains" from other companies: 2 each from Konami, Namco, Square Enix, Capcom and Sega. However, these spots aren't all filled, so I will need some assistance filling them in.
Once again looks like Pokemon is getting the short stick in a Nintober. Could I suggest Ghetsis (or at least his "underleveled" Hydreigon). Is the first time the main antagonist is a final boss in a Pokemon main series game rather than the champion. He' becomes even more wicked and insane in BW2...
At least Hydreigon is creepy looking enough.
Darkrai in the Mystery Dungeon games is a complete manipulative monster, but that is a side game, don't know if it counts.

Voldo from Soul Calibur, the scariest beast of them all.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
