Super Smash Bros for 3DS (N64 style) by JacobLionheart Super Smash Bros for 3DS (N64 style) by JacobLionheart
So. I was coming up with ideas for my StreetPass group's Smash Bros. 3DS launch day whatever-it-is-we-do flyer and this one popped into my head (during a meeting at work). Smash Bros 64 box art with all the original characters replaced with newcomers... and since we only have ten thousand trillion newcomers in this next Smash, that idea worked out PRET-TY well. I did a quick sketch and knew I had an idea I really liked, so I figured it was time to ART IT UP once again. As I was working on it, I determined since I'm waiting on some additional information before a flyer can really be completed, I'd go ahead and just... finish it as if it wasn't going to be a flyer. So this is what I came up with. Other than initial pencil sketches of the characters, this was done in Illustrator. I'm kind of proud of it. I hope you like it as well.

Oh and if you play 3DS and live in the Indianapoilis area... go like my StreetPass group on facebook, it's StreetPass Indianapolis: www.facebook.com/StreetPassInd…

I can imagine the gameplay style...

It would probably look like a DS version of smash, since the DS is 64 bit!

Noice. I like Villager's pose. Actually, I like how everything seems so well placed here. This one's going in the favorites. Keep it up man.

Thank you very much! Villager was probably hardest to draw because of the angle and the pose, but I feel like I did it alright. :D

Awesome work! Would love to see how it would look without the N64 box shading on it since it covers Palutena and PacMan

Nice touch making it specifically based off of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, since both that game and the original SSB box art both use heavy black outlines on the characters.

For all we know, QUOTE is going to appear in the game any minute now!

Nintendo should do it as a tribute to Mr. Iwata.

Love it! Great attention to details like the fonts and features symbols on the right.

I really enjoyed the strange art-deco(?) engraving style for Smash 64's art. It made the characters seem like immortal relics in a museum, more so than the generic realistic anime aesthetic of later games.

I am not a huge fan of that character, but based on that leaked footage, he looks like a LOT of fun to play as. I'm excited to try him out.

I wouldn't consider Little Mac as a Newcomer, I think he should be a called a Pre-Veteran, becomes his was originally an assist trophy in Brawl

:iconjacoblionheart:
JacobLionheart Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
While I see your point, he wasn't playable in Brawl and the official website lists him as a newcomer so... I'm gonna say Mac's a newcomer for Sm4sh.

I have a 3DS, live close to Indianapolis, but wish to remain anonymous to, well, lots of people.

Either way, Indianapolis! Yay!

That's fine! We usually have our meetups in public places in case anyone wants to just walk by and get some StreetPasses anonymously. :)

I promise we're a fun, accepting group of all kinds! I mean, I'm biased and all, but seeing as how I ~started~ the group, it's always been a goal of mine to be welcoming to anyone who wants to join in. And if they just want to walk by and get StreetPasses and not join in, that's fine too. I've had people come along that hollered at others with 3DSes out who were far away from the pack during a meetup (in an obvious "I don't want to interact, but do want StreetPasses" way) and I always scold them. It's not easy for some people to do social stuff and I totally get that.

That all being said, we'd love to have you around at our next event in whatever capacity you're comfortable with (whenever that will be, I'm trying to work out details for this Smash thing first, but we'll get together before that for sure) .
