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.
nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
Feb 24, 2021 18:35:31 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.
