Friendship goes a long way ❤

Nine months in the making. Here it is! Here is my celebratory "new Kirby game release" illustration for Kirby Star Allies, and boy, what a big one! I feel like I say this every time, but this has to be one of the most detailed Kirby pictures I've made to date.

And I don't say that willy-nilly! The size of this picture actually started off twice as big as the final version, but ended up being too big for my art programs to handle. This time I really focused on details I wouldn't normally have done in the past, like stitching and other textures. I also tried a new way of rendering to accentuate the colors and make things pop more. Gone are some of my typical conventions like colored lines and white, sticker-like outlines in favor of more striking lineart. Characters are shinier, bolder, and louder if I say so myself.

As usual, I also made a process video for it! Check it out here!

You might've noticed a little teaser at the end of the video. Just as Kirby Star Allies has had updates added over time, I think it'd be cool to parallel that with this illustration. Don't think you've seen the last of this picture yet...

As always, thank you immensely for your support. It makes me happy to excite people with my artwork, and I hope this one was a real treat that was well worth the wait.

Beautiful! :squee:

I've been a big fan of yours ever since I first became a serious Kirby fan, and I love your style.  And I really like this piece especially! I was going nuts waiting for you to deliver it, but it was worth the wait.

The colors are so vivid, and the line work is fantastic.  You're a big inspiration for me, and I hope I can be like you someday.  :)
