One of the Eggplant Wizards decides to make use of his free time, and one of his eggplants, now that Pit is off battling with Mario and the crew. OK, this picture really has no plot, but I had to write something about the situation. For those not in the know, this is a character from the Kid Icarus games. He is NOT modeled after the Captain N show, but rather the games themselves, with my own style added. References include the NES sprite and official character art from both the NES and Game Boy games.

I started this picture back in February, in an oC with Argon Vile... Two days later, I still hadn't quite finished it, so I moved to Photoshop. At that point, I decided to finish my Koopa Troopa stuff and get back to this immediately after. However, I fucked around with this wizard for eternity. Well, maybe not eternity, but for almost three months. The good news is that it's now done. On a side, Argon gave me advice that made some significant improvements to this picture, so I thank him for his ongoing support.

I wish I structured the wizard's abdomen area better, but I couldn't make sense of it at the time. I tried some new effects with the fluids in this picture: some of which turned out pretty well, and some of which didn't make it to the final version. Looking forward, I want to keep trying new drawing styles, and most importantly, draw in a much more reasonable time frame. I will try out different ideas to hopefully make this happen.
