"You're not in the Mushroom Kingdom anymore! Outsiders begone!"

I really love Tolstar. :aww: He's that kind of character that's so cute, he's ugly or he's so ugly, he's cute. :iconteheplz: I seem to gravitate towards characters (mostly villains) that are very unpopular/unlikeable; morbidly-overweight; and unappealing to the eyes of most (even though I, personally think they're adorable). :iconsawthatplz:

Although I'm not too fond of the 3DS remake of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (too many unnecessary changes), they did do an excellent job with recreating Tolstar's infamous "TrollFace". :XD: It's actually less trollish, and more hilariously-adorable. :giggle: I'm not saying the 3DS remake is bad (I'm still gonna buy & play it), but I prefer the GBA version. :paranoid:

:bulletblue:The lineart and coloring style is intentionally sloppy. :meow: I was going for a more "traditional-type" feel to this (kinda like coloring with Copic Markers). :) So yes, there is a lot of colors bleeding in certain areas.  

Anywho, that's about all I can think to say about this piece. Enjoy. :)

I love that fat bastard! :XD:  He was a short-lived boss for the player, but his trollish taunting was everlasting. :D
The GBA version has a distinctive charm that seems hard to replicate with 3D models.  There are certain aspects of the 3DS remake
that exceed the original such as map improvement and letting you know where you need to go next in the main story if you forget.

Well done, babe!  Good use of colors. :3 :hug: :heart:

Omg so adorable <3 i haven't played the game in years and forgot about this guy. Spikes are just adorable in general and need more attention

The only Spike who is a King ^^ Tolstar reminded me of Tubba Blubba in some way. That's not surprising though since Spikes and Clubbas are part of the same family. :XD:

The only time I ever played Superstar Saga was the time I borrowed if off a friend, I got stuck on Wendy before giving it back to him though, as I couldn't beat her before the timebomb exploded.

In all honesty I forgot this guy was even a thing, it's been so long. I look forward to playing the remake when I get a new, actually functioning 3ds.

Well, there's not too many unnecessary changes tbh. Some of the few changes are fine. Also, I think i prefer the 3DS remake and that's fine for you.
