Request 2! Best Buds on a Nintendo Friday by Styrofoam-Peanut Request 2! Best Buds on a Nintendo Friday by Styrofoam-Peanut


fav.me/d8af35w <<< Indirect Sequel!


Request made by :iconxradiokiller:, Rainbow Dash and Sonic as "best buds" I sorta grew up in the 90s, so this was a lot like a Friday afternoon for me.

Used a few new techniques for the shading on this one, but I feel like I got kinda flaky near the last steps, sorta artist fatigue or something. I started the file off way too huge and by one stage my photoshop file had gone up to 400 megs! :O I hope to do some updates here and there, but I've had fun with this, I really did. :D Except the couch. Arrrrrhhhuuuu!!!

GOODBYE NOW!

Sonic is copyright Sega!!
Rainbow Dash and MLP are copyright Hasbro!!
Nintendo is copyright...err.. Nintendo!!
Cheez-its are cop--okay you get the idea...

ALWAYS check request status in my journal entry before sending a request! Thank you!

Thanks! And ya it is! Although I don't have my SNES with me, I still have an emulator and stuff, not quite the same but it does away with the problem of the dead CMOS batteries in those cartridges (like in my copy of super mario all stars)  :)

Their the angry Nineendo Neerrds
Their the angry Atari sickerrs

DKC2..? I think it would've been better if it was Star Fox(Starwing in PAL regions) sonic was playing.

Hmm... I'm not actually familiar with that one (yeah, I know) DKC2 i think was the most frustrating game in my childhood >.< Kind of my justification for choosing it. :D Is Starfox a tricky game too?

What's more shocking than Sonic playing SNES is Sonic playing Donkey Kong Country, the game responsible for SEGA losing the console wars.
Reply
:iconstyrofoam-peanut:
Styrofoam-Peanut Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I actually didn't know that. :D Rare got their hands on those model rendering computers (expensive back in the day) and developed all the imagery with it. For 1994 on a 16-bit platform those graphics were MINDBLOWING!

Yah, pretty ironic isn't it? I think Dash may have said something that lead to Donkey Kong 2 being chosen.

Dude that game was tough. Now that I think of it I can't remember ever finishing it. Castle Crush and the Bramble levels were some of the worst :C

SalaComMander Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
I've never had the chance to play DKC2 or 3, but I fondly remember the original Donkey Kong Country. You're right, those graphics were mindblowing, and are even impressive to this day.

But yeah, Sonic was actually beating Mario in sales. Nintendo didn't take control of the market until Donkey Kong Country came out.
