  • Drinking: SWEET SWEET ELIXIR
Hello folks.

I understand there's been a Smash Bros "leak" recently and while I don't really know exactly what it is, I couldn't help but stumble upon a couple of details. Of course, there's no way to know what details are true, what details are false or if the whole thing's a hoax.

All I would like to do though is request that you don't bring this information to me.

It's not that I've got anything against knowing what's in the game, necessarily, it's just that I respect the developers enough to wish for them to be able to present the game in the way they want to, rather than forcing it to happen another way.

Plus, isn't there some kind of legal precedent here? Surely the people involved would have signed NDAs...

In any event, I might not be reading my messages for a while (so I might not be replying to my messages for a while. Please don't think me rude.)

Thanks!

Encyclotrivia - OPERATING THEATRE - ACT V
The Operating Theatre, naturally, closes out with a musical.
Sure, some of the other genres can be musical, but this is a proper musical.

It's Mardi Gras and two rival gangs are in an all out war! As it happens, Blade (leader of the Chain Gang) and Chain (Leader of the Blade Gang) are actually brothers!

This put a lot of pressure on their little sister Esperanza, who begs for them to stop fighting and goes home each night to sing to her potted plant.

Then, on the day of Mardi Gras itself, something incredible happens! The plant grows to a monstrous size and has also learned to sing!

Encyclotrivia - OPERATING THEATRE - ACT IV
You may have noticed that the name of each genre is also present in the title of that act. You may also have noticed that some of them are cleverer than others.

Flotilla the Pun was one of the first characters design for the Operating Theatre and her design has remained basically the same since then - she's probably one of my favourites. The main difference is that the level of detail in the puppets has changed over the years. They used to be more detailed but I felt that it was important for them to be one level less complex than the average Fandango robot, since they're all a smaller part of a much bigger whole.

Flotilla is a demigod Valkyrie who comes to earth to find a suitor. Naturally, everybody she meets instantly falls in love with her and begins to serenade her (most notably Mat Adore will pull out a rose and begin to sing. In doing so his focus moves away from the bull who, upon seeing Flotilla pulls out a rose of his own and starts singing to her also.)

The songs are all in some foreign language so it's difficult to know what's going on, until Quentin Numbers shows up to deliver his song in English - unfortunately it's an incredibly quick "patter song" which makes it just as confusing as everything else.

Eventually Flotilla's father, the God, shows up to scold his daughter for her rebelliousness but more importantly to scold all of the blokes because they're simply not good enough for his daughter.

Encyclotrivia - OPERATING THEATRE - ACT III
Act three is where I was less familiar with the genres directly, so they're inspired more by real shows (In this case, a little Swan Lake, a little Nutcracker.)

This story is a bit all over the place but basically a grouchy toy maker meets a timid librarian who claims she is cursed by the evil Count. A good fairy lifts the spell, revealing her true form while the count hexes one of the toys into a giant monster!

Of note here is that none of the puppets have legs, which is because they travel everywhere by pirouette.

Encyclotrivia - OPERATING THEATRE - ACT II
The first incarnation of the theatre had a scene based on a gangster shoot out, for some reason, but eventually became Murder Mystery, which is more a genre of fiction than a genre of theatre but that line remains blurred throughout.

A couple of notable details here:

The Killer puppet is not actually a separate character, but a representation of the murderer. Since this act is presented from the perspective of Sidney the detective, he has "flashback" thoughts where he considers how the murder took place and they include a non-dead Miss Teri and the Killer. To that end, technically any of the three suspects could be revealed as the murderer! The outcome is random, or more specifically dependant on which puppets get destroyed first.

In the olden days the boss was going to be the judge, but I thought on it and these plays rarely get as far as the courthouse, it's usually just the coppers showing up at the end, so that's where the DI came in.
His gimmick is that his head is a totem pole of expressions! The top part spins to show different eyes, the bottom has different mouth, and the middle one has different styles of moustache!

Encyclotrivia - OPERATING THEATRE - ACT I
I think I failed to mention that each of the five acts of the Operating Theatre are based on a different genre of stage performance.

A staple of British theatre, pantomime is fun, foolish and fourth-wall breaking, making it ideal for opening the show.

Another of the things that kept this final version of the theatre from getting completed was the posters on the left. Initially, I wanted to make them all in different visual styles, to match their respective genres but that proved too difficult so I resigned myself to simply making them flat, coloured silhouette styles. But they turned out really rubbish! So I knuckled down and went back to my first idea and tried to make it work. Luckily they turned out pretty well overall, and I think designing them in earnest makes the joke funnier.


Here is an example of the constant name changes leaving some leftovers. At a time the pantomime cast were all named after old English coins but right now only Sovereign remains. Speaking of which, it should be noted that many of the bosses emerge from the stage trap door, rather than the flytower, which is why they don't have strings.

Finally, pay special attention to the horse, since it is a fake horse in no fewer than three ways:

1: It's a robot horse
2: It's a puppet horse
3: It's a pantomime horse

It's not my kind of thing, but I wouldn't actively discourage people from enjoying themselves when drawing my characters!

Is it possible for you to make a Smash 150 style pic for clearly non-Smash characters like Scorpion from Mortal Kombat?

I don't have any plans for characters like that for the time being but I wouldn't rule anything out in the future!

And considering Mortal Kombat 11 is going to be on the Switch, a Smash 150 pic of Scorpion isn't out of reach.
