The Lost Book of Prophecies

Today, I’ll tell you the story of the lost book of prophecies.

This prophetic book was a mysterious tome full of stories of future events. Of course, many people craved this book, wishing to glimpse their futures. But no person, after obtaining this amazing book, ever found happiness. The reason? The book held frightful secrets not meant for people's eyes. That book came to be called the Dark Prognosticus and was sealed away. This is the tale of that forgotten book's last owner.

It is a tale of love.

This is my tribute to a game which had quite an effect on me. That game is Super Paper Mario. With a unique graphical style, inventive gameplay, brilliant humor, a beautiful story, unforgettable characters, and tons of heart, SPM is one of the best new games I have played in a long time, and has become one of my all-time favorites. Though it only came out a few months ago, it is already a classic in my eyes; a game which is very dear to me, and which I know that I will enjoy for years to come.

I could talk on and on about how much I love this game, and why- but I already did that a few days after I beat the game in my journal, and I think only about two people read it. XD (Well, it WAS nine pages long in Word.) But I believe that art speaks for itself, so I decided it was high time to do a full tribute to SPM. This picture is dedicated to all the creative and brilliant minds who worked on this game, and all the fans who have come to love and appreciate the game and the characters.

This took me around a week. It’s the longest I’ve spent on a vector, which is understandable, as this is the most complex, and biggest one I have done. I also put more love into it than any other. :heart: So in that regard, it is my favorite vector piece so far, and I feel that it is my best.

As you can see, these are my versions of all the characters. They're more human. Even though I've drawn some of these characters in all their geometric square-headed glory before, in the end, I prefer drawing them in this style.

Yes, I did recycle a few things from previous pictures of mine. ^^; But I tried to do it very sparingly. I mean, I wasn't going to make an entirely new Fracktail when I already had a perfectly good one at my disposal... that guy is complicated ;_; And I liked the Dimentio head so much from the DimentiOs box that I used it again. Ah, the glories of vector art.

Critique is welcome, as always! Point out anything weird you happen to see; I’ve been staring at this picture so long that it’s likely I missed something. I could nitpick and keep messing around with little details for a couple more days (accursed perfectionism!); but I think this picture is finished, and it’s time to send it off.

Enjoy, guys. This picture really means a lot to me, and I hope you like it too.

THAT is funny! First off: Flint is going "Here I come! I will stop you!!!" and Croacus is like: "WTF are you doing?!", Fracktail is going: "I'M STILL SCREWED UP!!!... HELP!!!" Francis is going: "Helloooo"

This is so AMAZING. :o

Geez is this ever gorgeous. I agree about the game too. It affected me very much and is easily my favorite game ever. And that's saying something!

My one complaint is that I don't think Mimi should be quite so mature-looking, but then again it's your own style so hey. Other than that, this is 100% amazing and adorable.

fluffycatgirl's avatar
Thanks! :D I'm glad you think so. It still bugs me that he came out looking more French than Japanese, at least in my eyes XD
Milesmagnificent's avatar
