Klonoa was featured in a video regarding the recent roster leak:…
Thanks, Maximilian Dood

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, Bomberman, 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. =P 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!

If people can be capable of doing fake renders like these, then imagine the amount of fake leaks that could potentially fool everyone.

I'm looking at you, ESRB leak.

Still renders like this are still easy enough to dismiss, though. It's where video comes into play that leaks really become a big deal, because THAT is a difficult thing to pull off—far more so than this kinda thing.

Well, it becomes kinda hard to dismiss anyway when you take a picture of it with a potato, so it's hard to tell if it's real anyway.

Either way, kinda bummed the leak turned out real. Seriously, that leaker is a douche.

Yeah, I'm disappointed that Sakurai didn't get to reveal things his way. Would've been nice to have things still be a surprise.
