The Koopa here doesn't have to worry about his hazardous "seat"; that Piranha Plant is amorous towards Koopa Troopas.
The first person who can identify what I'm referencing with the image title and the background design gets bonus points (which may or may not be redeemable for some sort of real reward, depending on what I feel like).
I give special thanks to Argon Vile for all of the great feedback he has given me. It was his encouragement and input that made me change things from how they were in the WIP to how they are in the final picture. Of course, I still maintain all of the credit for the drawing and the concepts within, but he's a great coach. =}
This started out as a remake of an old Koopa Troopa sketch I did (>>10092, top left). It progressed into something that, at the time, I actually thought was good. For one reason, I had drawn the character's form to be canonical and yet still "anatomically defined". For another reason, I picked a sensual (albeit flawed) pose. I knew the drawing still had a lot of work to be done, but I wanted to show it off. Given that I recently got into the habit of releasing my WIPs to the public, I jumped at the chance to post this one, as you can see in the obsolete version (>>10091).
While browsing Fur Affinity, Argon Vile stumbled upon this WIP, and then begun communicating with me. The rest, as they say, is history. But the part that's relevant here is that he told me straight up that there were some serious problems with the image. So, on the first of February, I started redrawing the picture from scratch (though while also reusing several elements from the WIP). I also decided to add in a Piranha Plant. And over the course of the next two months, I kept Argon up to date on my progress. Concurrently, he told me about a lot of things that needed fixing, as well as things that should be added to make the image more pro looking. The advice definitely paid off in the end.
This image was created entirely in Photoshop, with one exception: The top part of the background was drawn in openCanvas, and then later copied into Photoshop where I layered it behind my Koopa. Why did I use oC? Well, I wanted to be in an oC session with Argon <3, and yet still make progress on my picture at the same time. This plan actually worked out quite well...that is, until I ran into Windows and oC malfunctions. After that, the rest of the background was done in Photoshop. However, it was likely for the best, as I was then able to utilize Photoshop to create perfect gradients on the trees and the sparkles.
So here is my most popular picture. I don't exactly know what makes it so. Perhaps it's a combination of several elements, including the overall effort I put into this. I do feel that there is a lot of erotic elements working together in a relatively confined area. However, I worry that I scattered too much cum around. What do you think?
This picture's title and background are references to Yoshi's Island. That is the game where Nintendo established the particular physical styling of the Koopa Troopas that has persisted to this day. While Super Mario World had them walking upright, and gave them the ability to come out of their shells, the appearance there was a bit odd. Yoshi's Island made this look much better IMO, and when they are out of their shells, they wear boxer shorts, which implies they have something underneath that needs concealing. ;}
I know that some vore fans are interested in this picture, even though the idea of vore never even crossed my mind while working on this. I don't find vore arousing, but I do like the idea of a big Piranha Plant tongue licking all over a naked Koopa Troopa. Of course, I'm not going to deny that this picture features vore-like content, so feel free to enjoy it for that reason if that's your thing.
