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

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?
Piranha2021 Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013  Student Digital Artist
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

lol! And I didn't mention this at first, but Stroganoff is really cute! The design and the name pun!

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:

Russian Eeries and a ranger Swooper, eh? Well that is just genius work, m'am. :D :dummy: You're gonna win this contest. I like Swoopley the most. :)

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:
