Island Hitchhikers by JA-punkster Island Hitchhikers by JA-punkster
This is a tribute to one of my personal all-time favorite games, SMW2: Yoshi's Island. Few games captured me as this one did with its stunning visuals and amazing gameplay. And how could you resist seeing (and playing with) all those multi-colored Yoshi's? :D (Big Grin) 

I had so much fun experimenting with this piece, and I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Yo-yo-yoshi!! I am a dummy! 

EDIT: Oh my gosh.. I'm in tears right now!! Thank you SO much to goldnretriever and TheCreativeJenn for the DD! I'll keep trying my best to improve!! T^T

Given 2014-11-02
Island Hitchhikers by JA-punkster really brings out a "community feel" among Yoshis. The landscape is beautiful, unique and well thought out. ( Suggested by goldnretriever and Featured by TheCreativeJenn )

Aww. I can't help but like this. Yoshi's Island is a game I still have yet to play. I have the game, but no way to play SNES. :(

Anyway, I love Yoshi's Island too, too bad Yoshi's Island DS and Yoshi's New Island are not as charming as the original Yoshi's Island.. XD

Aww, thank you! Me too! Yes, back then, I didn't know as many techniques as I do now, so I believe it took much longer to do than it probably should have. It's still one of my personal favorites though.
