If you've been following my work, you know I made a bunch of Kirby Hats
during the wait for Brawl. It was just a way of passing the time, rapidly improving my photoshop drawing skills, and serving the Smash community at Nsider by taking requests for their favorite wannabe newcomers. I also did a few other Brawl-style pieces: Geno
, King Dedede
, Shine & Bright
, and Galacta Knight
That was a long time ago, while I was still living with my parents and didn't have to work to pay the bills. If I still had the time, I would've made more kirby hats. But this year I decided that I didn't want the tradition to die completely, so I made this fella. Klonoa is a personal favorite of mine.
Just for fun, I tried to pass it off as a "leak" before E3 this year. My leak was less than convincing, thanks to my lack of knowledge of the Japanese language. But I didn't expect the fake to last long anyways, given E3 is happening the day I write this.
But I was determined to get this piece done before E3 started, and that I did.
This is also the first thing I've ever recorded myself making. I'll be posting a time lapse video when I have the chance to edit it together.
With all that said, I'm super excited to watch Nintendo's presentation this year. Smashers unite!
