Tayce T.
in New Paper Mario style

Update: I gave her a new look based on an ingame image of her that I found.

Tayce T. is a Toad cook who lives in Toad Town. After Mario finds the Cookbook for her, she can cook using up to two items per recipe.
The Master is Tayce T.'s brother, as is mentioned by a certain Toad.

Also have a look at the rest of my New Paper Mario gallery.

This makes me want a remastered version of the game for 3DS. Or even Switch.

Thank you. She actually has them in the letter that she sends Mario in the game: www.spriters-resource.com/nint…

I really like your version of her! Leaving her eyes young but letting her have a subtle wrinkle by her mouth was a great choice. :aww: Also really liking the added orange cloth parts. <3

Yeah when I drew her with old eyes, she looked so sad :(

My take on it is that the wrinle line should be a black line that ends in a point and the eyes should look a little weary.

Other than that, outstanding as always.

If this ever becomes an actual game, her and Zess T. should run the buisness together. I know they really live apart from each other but, let's just say that Zess T. lost her lenses again and burned her place down. xD

I think all you need to do for this one is add some more wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, other then that, it looks great :D

Zess T. was such a bitch! I wish Tayce T. came with them to Rogueport....

Hmmm.
I always pictured Tayce T. as an old woman with deep eyes.
Not that I don't like yours. Yours is wonderful. But it seems like a younger version.
Maybe try making the line by her mouth curve in the opposite direction to show aging wrinkles?

Unless that's not what you envisioned.

Thanks for your feedback... I've actually tried it with a version where that line goes the opposite direction, but I thought she looked kinda mean, not nice like she's portrayed in the game.

Well, that can be fixed by making the eyes a little... softer?
Her eyes currently look like bedroom eyes if I may. Those "I'm batting my eyelashes at you" kinda eyes.

If you bring her eyes down a little, like, what would be considered the corners, she looks wise and older and such. umm... Here's a quick example.

Kinda like that. The second one is if you keep the eyelashes, she still looks nice. But she doesn't look so old with those. She looks more middle aged.

Does that help any?

Yes, that helps, thank you.
I finally found the time to change it now.
You can see the new version above.

I do realize that she looks younger than the original sprite, but I'm ok with that.

hmm needs some slight work with the mouth and eyes, and it's be nice to position the arms the same, but all in all it looks good

Oh IDK with this one. This one is a little weaker in the "fresh" look. Reason why is the mouth. The mouth... it's not in sync with the picture. I think just maybe you need to make the cheek (darker part) and make it cover the mouth more.

Just maybe. But with this one I'm not as exicted as for the rest. Which is still pretty high by the way!

Ok, I'll think about that.
