01 - Link [The Legend of Zelda] @ZeldaFreak - thanks for the suggestion. At first I wasn't going to do well-established characters since they're so iconic and they've been reimagined by so many p

05 - Construction Mario [Wrecking Crew] I've been on a NES black-box kick recently, so this was a great suggestion @ThePhleo! I feel like I unintentionally gave Mario some 'Wreck-It Ralph' vibes

03 - Shovel Knight [Shovel Knight] Thanks for the suggestion, @Makar! I've never played Shovel Knight, but the sprite-work in that game looks killer. My rendition ended up being a bit too similar

Alright alright, surprised @ZeldaFreak hasn't already suggested these. How about the red and blue lynels in the original Zelda?

I didn't even think about the OG Lynels actually, you're right. There's a lot of room for creative interpretation with those original sprites.

The reason I didn't suggest Zelda stuff is... well, as he said, 16-bit stuff and up doesn't really have much room for artistic license, so other than the Slogra and Gaibon suggestion, I was just trying to think of very simple sprites that could look really neat in his artstyle, so my mind just gravitated towards the older Castlevania sprites, since they're already very well designed, but still have plenty of room for imagination. Plus, to be honest, I'm used to the designs in the newer Zelda games, so I honestly kind of forgot how simple the original sprites for a lot of them were 😛

But you know what, you're right, it's weird of me to not suggest Zelda stuff. In that case, I'll throw in one more suggestion of a Ghini, in honor of spooky season

Ah yes you're right he did say 16 bit and above doh! Back to the drawing board again lol. Ghini could be a fun one!

Haha yeah - I wouldn't mind doing some more of these every once in a while even after October ends. Although I hate to break it to you, but your Paper Mario characters won't quite make the cut. Anything 16-bit or beyond is generally too 'graphically-defined' to allow for much creative interpretation. When you see the characters in Paper Mario, you don't have to imagine how they look in the way you would for characters on the NES or Master System or Gameboy.

Thanks for all the suggestions, though! The more the merrier!

Once again, where Casual Cart fails, @OptOut is here to pick up the pieces this Inktober 16th!

Was it cowardice that made Casual Cart look the other way??? Lack of talent? Or sheer callous arrogance and disrespect to his loving fans? Who can say? Me. I can say. @OptOut. It was all three.

However, no fear, @Makar for today Christmas, your birthday and Hanukkah have dropped all at once! In an amazing TRIPLE THREAT posting, I provide ALL THREE of your Paper Mario suggestions lovingly reimagined!

Up first, we have, um... spiky rock face dude? Anyway, he's James Bond now:

1620539484_inktober16thpart1.thumb.png.6f766b87e63fa055a20531f3fdb366e9.png

Next, a chilling warning to all the little boys and girls out there on the dangers of drugs, staring Chain Chomp, I guess? Spiky Chain Chomp? Stay in school kids!

1875414972_inktober16thpart2.thumb.png.cdccad6a2192537a86924eb001b63eb9.png

Finally, we have a BAD day in the Mushroom Kingdom for our good friend Mario, ammirite folks?! 😉 This time staring... Um... What a spiky Koopa? What's with all the spikes on these guys?! Anyway:

these have been awesome all month so far. I've got a couple suggestions. Hope they pique your creativity!

from Kid Icarus, the Reaper!

also from Kid Icarus, the Eggplant Wizard!

finally, Nemo! (from Little Nemo, Dream Master):

either as himself, or i'm partial to him as a half frog boy.

on another note, i never realized how popular these perler beads are until i did a google search to find sprite images.

I was actually going to suggest Death from Castlevania, but decided against it. This would be a good compromise 👍

16 - Armos [The Legend of Zelda]

@Makar and @ZeldaFreak - you guys are the bomb! These original Zelda enemies are exactly what I was looking for! Especially because I'm not too familiar with Zelda characters, so I don't know what the modern iterations even look like...

Ooooo, very nice! This is all Makar man, the original Zelda sprites honestly didn't even cross my mind until he made that suggestion. Credit to him!

Dude this is freaking awesome! One of my favorites you've done so far! And to be fair @ZeldaFreak, I wouldn't have really thought to look back at older Zelda enemies if not for your name constantly reminding me of zelda lol.

Now if only I had shigeru miyamitos contact info

Final Fantasy for the NES was my first RPG. I don't suppose any of the monsters in the game might inspire you?

There's the classic Imp which is the first enemy you'll see:

Creeps have an interesting almost lovecraftian aesthetic:

Slime/Ooze has a somewhat unique style for the time:

You know, I get a BUNCH of fan mail every single day, due to all of my fans mailing me.

Amongst all the gushing love letters, heartfelt thanks and dick pics, one of the most frequently asked questions I get is: "WHY? DEAR GOD PLEASE STOP, STOP IT, STOP IT, JUST DON'T ANYMORE OKAY?!!!!11!!!1!!1!"

However, the SECOND most popular question I get is: "Where on earth did you ever find that AWESOME OptOut TM dog picture with the sunglasses thing?"

Well, today Inktober 17th allow me to reveal the truth! There's an awesome street within walking distance of my home, some cool fucker painted a load of dogs on the walls! I picked the coolest one, and the rest is history!

In commemoration of me finding and appropriating the hard-work and talent of somebody else for my own sick purposes, I present a true meeting of two legends: OPTOUT VS. OPTOUT!!!

The reaper can go fuck itself.

I think no one else is doing the art for this thread, because we all love yours.

 

...well, that and the talent gradient is just a touch skewed to just two people.

I mean, sure @CasualCart is good and all, but even at his level he's only second best to @OptOut

17 - Reaper [Kid Icarus]

Those Kid Icarus sprites are great, @twiztor! I think you picked the most frustrating enemies in the game haha. I might want to add Little Nemo to my list for later in the month, too.

Another home run! I never envisioned the reaper as "zany" or "silly" before, but you totally nailed it.
