I really like Paper Mario 2 by LordDonovan I really like Paper Mario 2 by LordDonovan
My Paper Mario 2: the Thousand-Year Door fanart masterpiece is finally done. Thanks to everyone who commented on the earlier versions I posted and gave me the idea to use sketchyness in the final version. I have no doubt that thanks to your comments, this picture is much more interesting than it would have been had I gone with my original plan of doing it all vector-based.

For those who aren't familiar with the game, a very important item is an old, worn-out map to the Star Pieces. I decided to use that as a motif for the picture as a whole, it makes a nice counter to the ultra-smooth vector style of the normal Paper Mario 2 style, and the border helps tie the whole picture together. I realize it's not the standard look, but it's pretty cool this way I'd say, even the sketchy badguys are drawn on-model, and the bottom portion shows that I can replicate the official look if that's my goal. Meanwhile, the sketchy portions show some originality and the transition from vector to pencil sketchy shows some photoshop skills.

If you want to point out that Madame Flurry or Ms. Mowz are missing, it's because I didn't really like them. As for other characters, they probably weren't important enough. Even I have my limits of how much effort I care to put in. I wouldn't have minded sneaking a Kitty Boo in there, but they never did anything remotely important, despite being cute.


Pencil on paper, (actual drawing pencils with different numbers and such for once,) and Adobe Illustrator, combined and adjusted in Photoshop.

Love this. It looks super cool and your perspective on this piece is very good and it captivates my eyes to look more at the top of the picture were all the sketching is then the bottom. Which gives this picture its own little charm that I really love. Awesome work
