Contest - A few Paper Partners by Piranha2021 Contest - A few Paper Partners by Piranha2021
Sorry for the serious quietness as of late, been sucked into some old games lately and haven't had too many ideas for artwork to think of. xD

I was invited by :iconeniotna: (who has some seriously amazing Paper Mario art @o@) to join in a contest he was hosting to create some random new paper mario characters, whether they be partners, npcs, enemies, the works. I ended up going with partners for two of the 3 here. xDDDDD

Also after working on this, I decided to start a special for commissions if anyone is interested. Until further notice, I will take commissions for any two characters of your choice to do in fully colored paper mario style like the picture above, or any other past PM pics I've done for that matter, for only $10. So that's 50% off what it'd be for a normal two character full body digital picture of mine. ;) I'll also take single characters for only $6

Self advertizing aside, here's some backstory on these three.~

:bulletblue:Ivanoff and Stroganoff the Eeries:bulletblue:

Ivan is a traveling meteorologist, studying the patterns of weather and other general happenings in the sky all over the Mushroom Kingdom. Recently he's found his studies to be in very cold areas, as he's begun to see strange activity in areas where aurora borealis' can appear. Alongside him on his travels is his assistant and also nephew, Stroganoff (son to Ivanoff's currently undrawn brother, Romanoff). Stroganoff is a very helpful though sometimes simple minded companion, who has an absurd addiction for soup. While Ivan is a fully fledged potential partner, Strogan will only give Mario and co. a variety of soups for refilling health and stamina.

:bulletblue: Observation - Predict enemy attacks
:bulletblue: Clipboard Courier - Tosses his clipboard at an enemy
:bulletblue: Reflection - Bounces light off the lens of his telescope towards an enemy, blinding them to make attacks temporarily miss
:bulletblue: Counter Strike - If an observation for the previous turn proves true, this attack can hit with double the power. Used to tactfully evade an enemy and throw an attack back at them. Power can vary depending on an enemies attributes

:bulletgreen:Sir Swoopley:bulletgreen:

A carefree minstrel of the land. Sir Swoopley can act very flamboyantly towards the ladies, but rather than impressing them through strength and bravery, he prefers to serenade them in song on his Harpsibow that he totes behind him. He also has some pretty killer aim with an arrow.

:bulletgreen: Arrow Shot - Simply shoots an enemy with an arrow
:bulletgreen: Bard's Tune - Lulls enemies with a song to put them temporarily to sleep
:bulletgreen: Life Shot - Shoots a health-sapping arrow at an enemy for restoring health
:bulletgreen: Arrow Rain - Shoots a barrage of arrows down onto all enemies

Swoopers & Eeries (c) Nintendo

It wasn't something where just one person one I believe. Dozens of characters got selected out of everyone that entered to have some sort of cameo role in the persons PM game in the future :> I think at least one of my guys got picked- but I never found out for sure xD I had fun designing them regardless~

Sir Swoopley... is his name at all a reference to Sir Swoop from TTYD?

I had forgotten that there even was a Sir Swoop. xDDD So that was completely unintentional, but I guess you could say it is one, yeah. ;P

Glad that you like him too! He's probably my favorite out of the three personally, even though Sir Swoopley's dashing looks have seemed to win over most others that have come across this picture :icondesiremeplz:

Thank you so much.~ :giggle: I like your partners quite a bit as well! It's neat seeing just how many different ideas people have been coming up with for the contest. :D

And most people have seemed to take a liking to Swoopley the most, I rather liked Ivan and Strogan a bit more so it's pretty funny that he's gotten so popular. Must be his dashing good looks doing the trick :icondesiremeplz:

You are welcome. :> Thank you as well. It is very nice to see that everyone had been rushing to make a partner of a species that hasn't been made before, since almost all of them are unique species and are the first of their kind to be made a partner. .u.
Perhaps? XD I just like the Robin-hood esue part of it, since I'm interested in that stuff. But Ivan and Strogan are also very good! :D

Awesome ideas you have there. Sir Swoopley is a convincing official partner, and is very cool. I also especially love Ivanoff and Stroganoff's ideas. Eeries should be more active Mario species in the series, and both the characters are well done. Stroganoff's obsession with soup is genius and hilarious! Great work, once again! :D

Thanks so much.~ All these guys I had come up with on a whim yesterday and just ended up rolling with the idea until they were finished. I definitely agree that Eeries should appear more often, when I looked at their wiki for reference images I found it surprising that they seriously have only appeared in SMW and literally nothing else! xD

You're welcome. :) It's cool in the fact that you just thought up 3 brilliant different ideas. :) It is quite sad indeed, and it applies to lots of other cool enemies, like Anuboos.

Indeed, I actually rather feel like it's the one-off species that appear in the mario series who tend to be the most intriguing to me :iconimthinkingplz: There've been some pretty crazy characters to appear out of the blue only to never be seen again. .0.

But Sir SWOOPLEY SJDKJFK HE IS SO ADORABLE LOOKING!!! ;A; I would leave a longer comment but I need sleep... however they are both really cool and I read what you wrote this time!!! *trying not to be a slacker*
Also I feel like I haven't talked to you enough lately so hi. 8D

Thanks so much.~ :,D And I should probably shove off to bed myself in a minute or two here. xDDD Been staying up pretty late even though my break's over and I can't sleep in anymore for a while :iconlazycryplz:

And I've been wondering where you've been the past few days, my inbox is incredibly quiet without you around to chat to. :iconimthinkingplz: I had noticed that the last comment I left to ya was about 3 days ago so I slapped a new one onto your page earlier today :iconteheplz:

I'll probably head off for bed now n' talk to you when I get home tomorrow. :manhug:

Yup! :3 And yes, me too. And then in the morning I'm like, "NHHHHGGGGMMNNN DON'T WAKE ME UPPPP...."

BUT AAAH I HAVE BEEN SO BUSY I DON'T EVEN.... College junk is so tiring. >3> But oh yeah, how was your Thanksgiving? We had lots of good food and my grandparents came over! :'D And I actually got to finish watching Sonic X, because I'd always wanted to know what happened in that show. I watched the subbed version because I seriously can't stand 4kids, and I know for a fact that they cut out a LOT of the cute/funny scenes for various reasons. Like this gem of a scene for example: [link] :iconteheplz:

I always thought Cosmo looked like a defunct evolution from the Ralts line of pokemon, but even so her and tails were always a really sweet couple ;o;

College stuff for me has been surprisingly easy going, since I'm planning to attend the same place my brother has been a lot of the application process has been straightforward thusfar. Any ideas on where you might be goin so far~? :D

And my thanksgiving was good! My mom was gone for the week of Thanksgiving after picking my bro up from college for her and him to spend time at my dad's place while I stuck at home with my grandparents. Also since we ended up already having a "thanksgiving" of sorts with turkey and mashed potatoes just a few days prior we had our own remixed version with twice baked potatoes and home made ranch grilled chicken, with a bunch of other food too. B-)

I really should get back to that sometime. xD;;;; Main reason I watched the 4Kids version only for a time was because of the awesomely authentic voice of Eggman himself :iconsobeautifulplz: Everyone else was pretty terrible though. >XD So I'll have to check out the sub instead sometime

(On a bit of a related note I still prefer the dubbed Kirby anime rather than the Japanese if only for Escargoon's voice :shifty: I have watched both versions just as much as each other though eue)

Hahaha, I guess it's a little easier for you since you know exactly where you're going and what you want to do. :iconotlplz: HOPEFULLY I'LL GET THERE. Also today my guidance councilor called me in and was like 'what is this?' and there was an application for some kind of scholarship that had my name on it online... and I was like WHUT. But I think it had to do with my dad's work, and maybe he signed me up or something. But perhaps I can win money if I fill it out??? Hopefully!

BUT YOUR THANKSGIVING SOUNDS DELISH. :'DDD We just had the usual stuff, like turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, cole slaw, stuffing, etc etc. HOWEVER, instead of pumpkin pie, we bought- get ready- a pumpkin ICE CREAM pie.
Pumpkin flavored
Ice cream
In the shape of a pie.

:iconbadassplz:

It was actually pretty yummy even though I'm not that partial to pumpkin flavored stuff!!

ALSO YES YES HOLY CRAP EGGMAN. True story: I just started playing Sonic unleashed again (when I have time <____>) solely for the purpose of listening to that glorious man speak. :iconcryforeverplz:
And I do also love Escargoon's english voice!! ;___; Though I like the japanese one too, even though it's quite different. :shrug:

TAILS AND COSMO WERE SO CUTE THOUGH ;o; My bro said they probably omitted that scene because it implied they were in love, since 4kids tends to eliminate love relationships??? BUT I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW THEY MADE THE EPISODES FUNCTION WITHOUT THAT BECAUSE THERE WAS KIND OF A LOT OF CUTE MOMENTS. >:I

Okay Imma stop ranting now... GOSH my hands are freezing what the heck.
GOTTA GO EAT FOOD AND GET WARM :thumbsup: Sorry for my random mood! HAVE A GLORIOUS EVENING M'DEAR.

It took me a good while to really figure out what I'd like, so I'm really thankful to have settled on something this year. xD (When I was little I wanted to be a Disney Imagineer, and then after that a Graphic Designer, so it's still in a similar sort of field, but having taken actual graphic design classes and such I definitely know it's not the kind of art I want to go into)
And man I always freak out when I get called to anyone's office and don't know what it's for. xDDD Even though I've never gotten in trouble I always assume the worst :iconlazycryplz: I think I've filled out about 20 random sorts of scholarships now? Doubt I'll win any but the real scholarships I'll be focusing on are the art related ones. (Still keepin them hopes up for my Christmas Card, my bro's been thinking about entering that same competition though to try and steal my thunder :shifty:)

It was fun having something different this year! And the chicken was soooooo good too.~ I had it one time when visiting an old friend back in Michigan and her parents made it. It's really simple to make too. You just take boneless skinless chicken breasts, corn flakes, and ranch. Batter the chicken with the ranch (any kind will probably do but we used the kind that's for salad dressing) then roll it ALL over in a bunch of crushed up cornflakes. Then just bake them suckers until they're no longer pink inside and enjoy! :iconloveloveplz:
And I've never been a huge fan of pumpkin either. My brother's huge on the stuff though. xD True story about ice cream pies though- for my birthday back in 09' I got an oreo ice cream cake/pie from Dairy Queen to try out rather than a normal cake. What I was expecting was cake with ice cream all filled on the inside. What I GOT was just really hard vanilla and chocolate ice cream with oreo crumbles on top. :iconnotimpressedplz: If it had a bit more to it like Moose Tracks ice cream or something like that it'd be one thing, but I was just so disappointed that I plan this year to try remeding this by making my own ice cream cake :iconfinallyplz:

a;ldskjg I totally forgot that I actually had the Sonic Unleashed "movie" (all the cutscenes just slapped together into one big 1h 20m video) on youtube to watch later and never actually finished it. I didn't even get to Eggman's 1st appearance last I remember. :iconotlplz:

LATE REPLY IS LATE BUT I HOPE YOU HAVE NOW GOTTEN WARM AND HAVE YOURSELF A FANTASTIC NIGHT AS WELL

They're Dino Ghosts, we can't have Dino Ghosts EVERYWHERE. Especially SPACE. What do you think that'll tell kids? that dinosaurs escaped the meteors?

I like their abilities too. The Bard seems cute, though a little plain for backstory. That Cape Feather is a nice touch I just noticed XD

They're both pretty bare for backstory given that I made them both up on a whim this morning. xDDDD If I think of more for them though I'll add to their descriptions like I have with my past partners. (Though it still probably won't be as long because all my previous partners have been around for nearly two years now, so they've got a little ways to go as far as development xP)
