Smashing Love by Bonus-kun Smashing Love by Bonus-kun
I'm sorry it took forever to color this, guys...I kinda lost my motivation in coloring this and abandoned it for months. Plus I'm not really into coloring honestly. I just had a sudden urge to color this again a couple of days ago. And look, now it's done.


Now that I think about it, this art is WAAAAY overdue. I drew a sketch of this more than 3 years ago. 3 years.
No, no, it's not what you think. I'm not THAT slow. It's just that I didn't color it until a friend introduced me to Photoshop in 2004. I also redid the colors when it's almost done because I wasn't happy with the result (I was a Photoshop noob and still am lol). So yeah...

-500+ hours in Photoshop (I didn't do anything 70% of the time haha)
-Wacom tablet
-used reference for minor character details, but used lots of references to get the sky and lighting right
-removed the redead 'cuz Bowser's arm is cooler

I worked hard on the background, but I gotta admit, it's still crappy. And something is wrong with the lighting too. I need art lessons.

Man, I can't wait for the sequel :]

This is of Melee, because it has Roy, Dr. Mario, Mewtwo, and Pichu. Sonic only appears in brawl.

Regardless of the technical issues you yourself may have with the piece... it cracked me up. Seriously. I lol'd more than once. XD The comedy and facial expressions are awesome. There are so many things to look at and each one is entertaining. I especially love Pichu's face for some reason. Excellent job! Keep up the cool work. ;D
