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.

So... is it just some new version of the old keyword descriptions? Are we going to be trending on Twitter now? I'm still not sure I get the full scope of this.

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.

TV Tropes? Don't say that, or I'll be distracted for hours! That place is a black hole of time.

And yeah, seems like Bowser looking boss in a cape (and possibly crown) is a universal hit. I guess next time I get around to drawing fan art I should make another entry in the "regal Bowser" series.

Oh wow, that's a lot of reading. And to be honest, I've never really followed Sonic that much, so it looks like about half the story would be wasted on me.

They did in Mario 3, that's where I got the idea. Really, they just need to bring it back. I mean, since Cat Bowser has been a thing, a cape's downright mild.

Okay, you can do the first part, I'll take the second.

...Sorry, I just couldn't resist the setup. I'm terrible. Then again, if finding Peach hot is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

Bowser with the powers of a vampire? Scary thought. Or a cool thought, take your pic.

You sure wouldn't have much of a neck left after he bit it with those huge fangs.

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.

Since I haven't played any Pokemon games in years, the similarities are coincidental. Still, interesting to know, and thanks for the compliment.

Bowser in a badass pose, with a badass army behind him. Badass coloring and a badass cape.

 

BADASS, in every sense. =D Bloody FANTASTIC.

People don't really focus on the badass angle with Bowser enough if you ask me. Or if they do, they draw him way too realistic/gritty in the process.
