Bowser's At It Again by LordDonovan Bowser's At It Again by LordDonovan
A good piece of Bowser fanart is something I've wanted to do for a long time, since he's my favorite Nintendo character, and now I've finally gotten around to it. Call me crazy, but I admire how he just keeps trying to kidnap Peach and beat Mario no matter how many times he loses. That is truly courage in the face of adversity, even if he is technically the badguy. But really, can you blame him for kidnapping Peach? Recent games have shown that if anything he's just lonely, and Peach is a severe hotty.

Anyway, I figured I'd draw a picture of him actually kidnapping Peach, because that wasn't ever shown in the old games. Specifically, I chose the kidnapping from Mario 3, because there was a picture of him in the instruction manual wearing a cape and I thought Bowser looked extra cool in a cape. Unfortunately, I couldn't find said picture, so I had to go off of memory.

Truly Mario 3 was ahead of its time. I just don't get why he still has never gotten the cape again. Considering the much bigger costume changes Bowser has gotten in recent games, a cape shouldn't be an issue. In fact, since capes were a power-up, and he's been using power-ups, getting the cape again should be extra reasonable. Though definitely not a yellow one like in Mario World.

TV Tropes' bio of him is quite lengthy. And I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to see him in a cape and crown.

His look reminds of Ghetsis from Pokémanz B2/W2. He has one arm, a black robe, and his airship reminds me of the Plasma Frigate. Great picture anyways.

Ah, Bowser is my favorite Nintendo character as well. He shows a really cute side of himself around Peach. (He can be really adorable imo.) I wish we had more games where there is friendly interaction between him and the other characters. *ahem* Anyway, briliant work on this picture! Its amazing!

The more I play Mario games, the more I like Bowser. He is pretty persistent and I can imagine how lonely he must be (though he'll never admit it XD).
