Super Smash Sisters by TheBourgyman

For starters, I think the selection of characters is very appealing, apart from the exclusion of Adeline from Sakurai's own Kirby serie...


Evva Rowley - Concept Junk by MigBird
Evva Rowley - Concept Junk
Protagonist of a comic I'm working on. She's come a long way!
Some of you may remember that I used to draw comics. I'm gonna do that again, except now it's going to be less stupid and won't disappear without a word before ending.
And I'll tell you DA crowd a secret that I'm not telling the other sites. This series, Machina, is connected to the timelines of some of my other stories. Ideopolis is one of them. A certain YouTube trilogy I'm working on is another. And the one it's most directly connected to is a comic I never wound up drawing, that will be told through broken in-medias-res snippets between Machina chapters. There's art of its characters in my gallery.
Space-Future Greenhouse by MigBird
Space-Future Greenhouse
It's a greenhouse in the space-future. Another BG from the cancelled game.
Desert BG by MigBird
Desert BG
Exterior of two greenhouses, background for a cancelled game. I still think it's neat.
Shantae - Master Bolo's Lesson by MigBird
Shantae - Master Bolo's Lesson
This is actually going to be the piece that goes into the new game, Half-Genie Hero, once it's finished. There's this subquest where you pick up fanart to view in a museum in-game. So yeah.

At some point in the series (going light on spoilers here), Shantae loses her genie powers for a while, and only has her magic hair to fight with. I wanted to include Bolo in my piece since I really like that character, so I drew him sparring with Shantae, helping her brush up on her CQC to make up for the loss of her powers.

Play this series. If you have a 3DS, all three games are available to you right now in the eShop. The Wii U's got the most recent game, and the upcoming one. And Half-Genie Hero is coming out soon on all current and last gen consoles, Vita, and Steam (I'm getting it on Wii U myself), and is shaping up to be the best in the series by far. If you like Metroidvania platformers, have a look at the Shantae games. I adore them.

In fact, I recommend giving anything with the WayForward logo on it a look-see. They are masters of 2D action games.

First, go watch the video my mates and I worked on for a year and a half:…
I did the music, sounds, and many of the voices. It was time consuming, and a learning experience, and also kinda fun!
NEXT! I HAVE A TUMBLR! With DETAILS ON A NEW COMIC! So that's something:
Follow me there if you want to keep up with comic-related updates, since I'm finding I prefer their system over DA journals.
So! Two posts in, top of the page as of this writing, I have sketches and notes from a new comic series I'm developing! It involves androids and the softest science this side of a liquefied LHC!
I know, I know, everyone's wondering about Ideopolis, right? And one or two of you maybe concerned about Good Times? Maybe? Sorta?
WELP. I've got a bunch of Ideo sketches waiting to go up as we speak, and certainly more to come, as I'm now inching out of the planning phases and starting to put together actual concept art. I've been doing a TON of work up in my brain trying to figure out how to rebuild the world of Ideopolis into something more cohesive, something I can tell a decent story in, and it's all coming together, albeit slowly.
So, for news regarding all of my future comic series, as well as assorted info and bits of art that won't be on DA, please head over to the new tumblr and follow me there. I'm not totally walking away from DA of course. But. Y'know.
Tumblr's easy. And simple.
So, go there, and stuff.
Peace out.

Thanks for visiting my page dude.
MigBird Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012
No problem, I always look through galleries when I get a fave.
Bowser81889 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I appreciate that.
Rock-Raider Featured By Owner May 6, 2012
Hi there.:) Quick question, you familiar with Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story?
MigBird Featured By Owner May 6, 2012
I'm very familiar with Xenoblade, because I'm so insanely hyped about it. Problem is, I've recently come to the realization that I've got far more games than I could ever play, because I didn't buy games like a normal sane person. So unless I can ditch a whole lot of junk, I don't have room for a 100-hour open-world Skyrim-killing JRPG, awesome or not. >:

The Last Story I'm not as familiar with, but if memory serves it's a game done in RPG Maker? I think I downloaded it but never played it, for reasons stated above. :/ I may be thinking of something else, though.
Rock-Raider Featured By Owner May 6, 2012
Well, if you want a shorter JRPG, The Last Story is only 20 hours.

Yo. I've gotta say this is the best April Fool-related thing DeviantArt has ever done.

I love cats.
