I finally got around to again this week and I've been working on it for the last couple of days I learned two things doing this pic: The atmosphere effect, to make the background look far away, and controled lighting.. which was really hard to keep track of. Crazyness is what it was, dealing with watercolor pencils I think I'm finally getting the hang of them though.
To get the bluryish background thing going, which looks a lot better on the original than on here, I colored in the rock texture and with watered down acrylic ink I washed the whole background over. Doing that blured the sharp lines together and gave it a greyish fogged out look, sort of
The only Photoshop thing I've done to this was a brush streak of light green to make light look like it's filtering in from the ceiling. I didn't want to try it on the original 'cause I knew I'd probably screw it up.
Yoshi's Island fans will recognize this boss This thing had the coolest intro of any of the other bosses, and when it would try to ram into you and hit the wall the vines would coil up and out of the water so snake like! It was so COOL! That game along with Donkey Kong Country 2 and Super Mario RPG are my all time favorite games on any system.
99.9% watercolor pencil babay!

The funny thing is that you can one hit kill this boss by standing at the edge of the doorway and shooting an egg at it. The Kamek will come in and say 'OH MY!' and you win the level without fighting the boss.
Plus, technically this boss is named Naval Piranha.
Yeah, those rocks were a beast to paint. I remember it taking forever.
thx f0r this 4wwwesome sh1t!
That boss is not so scarry if you throw and egg at it before kamek comes in.
I wish I could draw half as good as you.
I fight against this plant for months! I didn't succeed to defeat him...
