EDIT: From Nintobervilltch 2008, the progenitor for my annual Nintober project. Back then I only sketched 11 Nintendo villains rather than 31 monsters. It's 2012 and I'm redoing the old artwork and dragging them into the new template to make it one continuous project, if you like!

009. Giygas from Mother/EarthBound

This quote from the original entry: "...I like it so much I might finish it when my daily sketches are done."

Only took me four years! ;)

As disturbing as he was, Giygas is the most depressing character I've seen in a video game!

When I learned about this, Giygas was the first one I expected. This guy's the MASCOT of video game nightmare fuel for most.

That Mewtwo thing looks like he's trying to keep his sanity intact while watching a 3-hour video of the Fire Flower theme from Super Mario Galaxy.

I somehow thought that the downward parts on the sides Giygas's face were a mustache.

I love how you combined Mother 1 and 2's Giygas into one picture, even though it looks more cartoony and less dark and creepy. Great job.

I agree it looks cartoony, largely because it's pencil lineart that I intended to turn this into a finished piece and never got round to it.

Shame though. This was actually my fave of my NinVillains pieces :)

I sometimes look at him as a victim of confusion and corruption, who possibly once was a good alien.

I think his race is generally invasion-based. But he can't be all bad. You beat him the first time by singing a song Ninten's grandmother used to sing to him, making him happy. You beat him the second time with the good feelings of everybody in the game, making him happy.

I like how you included both incarnations of the villain. His ultimate form in EarthBound (AKA Mother 2) was truelly creepy to look at. I like how when he was defeated Pokey/Porky was given the role of main villain of Mother 3. (I was also quite happy they made Pokey a NPC boss in SSBBrawl's adventure mode.)

Same here. I only wish they'd used more game bosses rather than creating a few unique ones. Porky's giant spidermech never looked so awesome ;)
Beau-Skunk's avatar
Yeah, I would've liked more bosses like Dr. Robotnik (from Sonic) in his Egg Mobile, and such in the game. I was happy to see Ridley though.

I think Pokey's spider mech was the one from Mother 3.

Great Villain and a great take on him, Somehow I thought you were only going t drawn his vapor for (which is the easiest Nintendo villain to draw ever)

I was originally just going to draw his Mother form, but after watching the final battles and seeing ties between the two, I decided to do the whole thing.
