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.

Shrikeswind: Just woke up and within like a half an hour my brother-in-law sends me two pics of the little rapscallion. Not sharing because I don't believe in posting baby pics on the Internet, but I will say he's clearly going to be a genius.

Shrikeswind: His name is Elliott, btw.

Nester the Lark: The Japanese voice actor for Adol (of the Ys series), Yuji Kaji, will be making an appearance at Konami's TGS presentation to "represent the fans." In the past, Konami has showcased Falcom's games at TGS. I wonder if there will be more to it...

Nester the Lark: I'm reluctant to do spoiler discussions because if people are playing the game, they wouldn't want spoilers, and if they're not playing the game, they wouldn't be interested anyway.
Sept 3, 2022 9:00:36 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.

nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.

nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.

Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.

Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...
