Bighead Luigi problem by rongs1234 Bighead Luigi problem by rongs1234
I was watching game grumps awhile back when they where playing Super Mario Bros 2, and they pointed out how when Luigi shirks his head stays huge then i thought it must be hard to keep a head up that's the same size as your body, and that's how this pic came to be.

Did a bit of experimenting with picking colors in this pic, mostly used it on the "!" and the spiky hurt mark thing. I also tried using a smaller brush for the lines in the BG like a friend suggested, then lightened the BG layers the further back the went which makes the characters in the foreground pop which i wanted. Dunno why i i wanted to put news print effect on the BG but i looks cool and I made it different sizes too to match how faraway it is.

Also experimented with their expressions a little, i think they came out ok.

yay, another critique! and it's a game grumps-based one too! this will be fun. i suppose.

what i liked:
-vibrant colour palette. it's a bit hard on the eyes (brighter than super mario advance, even,) but i like it a lot! really adds a lot of personality to luigi and the shy guy.
-composition of the lineart. the thick lines you used as bordering work extremely well with your colouring.
-the expressions... wow! they're great! very cartoony but don't stray far from the typical mario style.
-nice use of lines to show movement, especially with the motion blur.

what i felt you could improve on:
-it kind of feels like the background is a backdrop, instead of a setpiece interacting with the main picture. just my two cents, though.
-luigi's not dressed like a mayor. it would be easier for him to flee when death approaches.

overall, nicely done!
What do you think?

Reminds me of a certain Dorkly Bit (which is a good thing).
"Death approaches better skedaddle!"
it looks like luigi is going to headbutt the shy guy.
Well, this is a fine pickle.

Once again rongs artwork proves to be right.
Love, love, love it.

Even if weegee's were being harmed in the making of this glorious piece, they would still have about 98x Lives left. Give or take.
