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.

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.

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.
