I'm not going to have Thanksgiving Dinner. My mom's sick, and nobody else in the house knows how to make it... so no turkey... no ham... no corn... and worst of all... NO STUFFING!
Well... let's move on. *looks to notes* Anyway, today, since it's Thanksgiving, I had this good idea. I wish to be thankful to the people who have made art for me. This has been an idea I've had for a long while now. So, this is a top ten list of artwork/stories others have made for me, and I will show how thankful I am for them.
This is one heck of something really cool he did for me. I honestly kinda think that Kyoryuger vs. Go-Buster missed a bit of a chance... but whatever. I thought up what evil Kyoryugers would look like, and I asked good ol' RangerAnime to make it for me, and he did it with true amazingness!
. Something that I honestly had on my mind for a while, while in devolpment of Sonic Sentai Goseiger, (More on that some other day). So, I again asked my buddy RangerAnime to do this, and he did another amazing job.
. One of the more impressive images that someone has done for me. I originally wanted it to be something along the lines of Serena joining Team Flare, but he took my concept, tweaked it a bit, and made it something truly beautiful and amazing. It ends up at the number 8 slot because... compared to some of the others, while it's great, it's... just not as great.
Super Smash Bros: Mega Man's Cosmic CrushEveryone in the happy go lucky world of Nintendo was getting ready for their biggest project of the decade. They had to prepare themselves for the big release of both versions of the next Super Smash Bros. The 3DS version was going to be released first with a summer release. The Wii U version would come later around Christmas time.
"Hurry, people! Hurry! The big video game convention of the summer is almost upon us and we have to be absolutely prepared for this!" Master Hand called out to all the players who were going to return/debut in the next game. Some others who have not been given any hints of returning yet were waiting in the background in hopes of what was to come. Newcomers Mega Man and Rosalina were getting ready as well.
"I'm so excited! I was one of the top players to be in Brawl, but only lost to Snake due to begging by his creator," Mega Man stated.
"I was quite surprised myself to hear that I was going to be in it. I just can't believe how Daisy took it," said Rosalina.
. The very first time I got into one of my best buddy's shop, (and possible the only time, no more points...), anyway... I sorta thought having the good ol' Blue Bomber getting a crush would make a good plot, but for the life of me I couldn't figure out how to make it work. So, when I saw the shop was open, I put in my request, and my good buddy made something truly amazing. I highly recommend you give it a read.
. It was kinda hard to pick if this was going to be in the top five or not... in all honesty. But I ended up placing it in the number six slot... ironically, this is seven, not six. This is another fan-version for something I'm working on. But what it is... I'm not gonna tell ya! Anyway, I can't help but wonder how things would work if there were seven Gokaigers... eh.
Okay guys, we've gotten to the half-way point... and man this has been kinda... iffy. Computer's been a bit slow, oh well. Anyway, let's get into the top five.
. One of my other best buddies, did you think I wouldn't give her a spot SOMEWHERE on this list? This was a bit of an internal debate... I wasn't sure if this would be the one, but it ended up being so. I gotta say, her character looks flat out adorable, and like this... new levels of adorable.
. The very first thing he did for me, and one of the first things someone else did for me. This image holds a special spot in my heart, while simple, it ultimately won out the number four slot, over a few other things good ol' Rocket did for me.
. A work of art I was honestly really waiting for. My jaw dropped at how amazingly this picture was done. And in my own little head-canon, Roll's special weapon is something to do with hypnosis. Wanna know where it came from? Three words: Megaman Powered Up. It came from the line from when Roll battles Elec Man. Just sorta... stuck out in my head. This image is beautifully done, and I really like it. Honestly, I'm surprised that something like this didn't happen in the actual games.
Truth be told, the last two were a serious debate in my head. Both are really great, and now, I know where these two will go.
Super Mario Super Tales Episode 22Super Mario Super Tales Opening
Look What The Cat Dragged In
The sneakiest bandit of them all, Nabbit, was busy running through the Mushroom Kingdom with his sack full of stolen items. He has been notorious for being quite the thief.
"Oh yeah! I got me some really good stuff today!" he snickered as he ran from whatever force would be after him. Of course, what he didn't expect to see was a Monty Mole popping up from under his feet and tripping him over. This caused his sack to fly out of his hand and off a cliff.
"Oh no! My loot!" he exclaimed.
The loot went flying right on down right at Rosalina's Comet Observatory that was currently parked nearby. Rosalina was admiring the view of the Mushroom Kingdom as it hasn't changed since she was a little girl.
"This brings back many memories..." she thought to herself.
Of course, that wasn't going to be the plot here. Nabbit's sack dropped down right onto the base of the observatory.
"What's that right there?" Rosalina asked.
. The sort of style this story holds... that, coupled with some Chugga LPs, sorta made me give Mario a bit more of a chance, and, I will always be a Sonic fan, I just don't totally hate Mario anymore. Regardless, I rolled the idea by my buddy, and he liked it. He told me that he would do it, and after some waiting, he did it, and I LOVED it. I'll go on and say, Rosalina is my favorite character from the Mario franchise, and I loved the Super Mario Super Tales
episodes she appeared in. I really liked how the Lumas helped Mario, Luigi, Peach and Toad look for Rosalina, and this episode holds a special spot in my heart. I love to take some time to read it when I can.
And finally... drum roll please!
The number one spot goes to....
. This, like Super Mario Super Tales Episode 22,
was something long awaited. I worked hard on a reference image for her to use, and my jaw dropped all the way to Tokyo when I saw how beautiful this was done. She got all of the colors right, got the differences Ian, Star and Tux have compared to other Sonic the hedgehog characters, such as Ian having goggles and fingerless gloves, Star's quills spiking out akin to a Super form, and Tux's scarf. Not to mention Sam looks so adorable!
And thus, the list is completed.
Man... that was kinda long. Not to mention DA just started acting odd when I was working on this. Ah well. Well, I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. I'm thankful to everyone who took time out of their day to make all these amazing images and stories. And now... TUREKY!
Oh right.... mom's sick...
no stuffing... oh well.
