My fourth and final entry to the Ultimate Fandom contest, and I think I saved my best idea for last First - the mandatory rundown.
-Ultimate Fandom Contest 3: Video Games [link] -Gaming Franchise: Super Mario Bros -Environment or Character: Environment -My Description: below as usual
Bowser, or "King of Koopa" as he was formerly called, has been present ever since Mario's first adventure, and every evil villain needs his fortress of doom right? so His castle has always been a final stage in each game. For a couple of months now, I've been wanting to do something like this, and this contest was my motivation to actually do it, since it seemed like a daunting task to try out. Bowser's castle does seem to vary in appearance from game to game, probably because Mario keeps laying waste to all of his expensive castles lol. I was on the verge of drawing the type you see in the latest Mario Kart game, but found a screenshot from a different game (I think Mario Party for the DS) which is where I based this from, and the design on that version looked the coolest of all the Bowser Castle's I've seen
Art details: This one is 100% pure illustrated in Photoshop (with a mouse still lol), something I hardly do now that I have 3D and access to stock textures or photo's. I figured it would look better and more dramatic that way, considering my other entry to the environment slot was almost fully 3D. And to also remind everyone that I can do pretty good stuff without the need for 3D too Everything here was done from scratch in the most traditional way that digital art can get

I did this for Capcom's official fan art contest for their game Okami. I am a big fan of the game's art style, and I thought I would give it a try in sculpture form! I used silk flower petals for the cherry blossoms.
Super sculpey over wire and foil armature, acrylic paints, silk flower petals.
Dimensions: 10.5" x 9" x 6"
EDIT : Wow, I was awarded third place for this! I am honestly very surprised and honored.
I did this to challenge myself with a new style, I've been blocked for months. This helped me to unblock; I never expected to win anything, especially with all the amazing entries I saw.
Thank you for all your kind words and comments!

This is my entry for the Okami contest. I finnally was able to upload it. Hmm I think the size must be bigger, but my computer is too slow, and I can't work good with such a big file >.< and also it looks a bit bad ._. too much blur. But if i'ts too much required, i'll upload it later. ^^ Ahh anyway, I don't think that I'll win. But I always wanted to draw this awesome character *-* I haven't play the game, but I would love to x3 Uhh I had a little accident when I was inking this...I dropt the ink and it spilled all over me and the floor -_- the draw fortunately survived o.o just two drops fell on it...but I had to take a bath haha well, I hope you like my amaterasu ^^ **********************************************

Hmm creo que el tamaño tenia q ser más grande, pero mi compu es demasiado lenta, y no se puede trabajar con un archivo tan grandote >.< Y también se ve un poco mal ._. muy borroso... Pero si es muy necesario, lo subire despues. ^^ Ahh de todos modos, no creo que valla a ganar. Pero siempre había querido dibujar este padrisimo personaje *-* Nunca he jugado Okami, pero me encantaría x3 Uhh, por cierto tuve un pequeño accidente cuando estaba entintado esto..sin querer tiré la tinta y se toda me cayo en encima y en el piso -__- afortunadamente el dibujo sobrevivió o.o solo le cayeron 2 gotitas...pero yo si tube q darme un baño Jaja bueno, pues espero que les guste mi amaterasu ^^ ------------------ Tools: Dewent-artist and derwent-studio Drawing ink (what it left xD) Photoshop Special white paper
