Kirby as an Ukiyo-e by thejedhenry Kirby as an Ukiyo-e by thejedhenry
Kirby, re-imagined as a Japanese ukiyo-e. He's pretty frightening!

Kirby with teeth? I assume they're to hold his victims after sucking them close to his mouth. After all, he doesn't chew...

Wow!  Kirby looks so no threatening and squishy in the games.  Here he looks like some amorphous mouth demon with a katana.

i must say that this picture is quite exquisite. as there are not a critique feature on this deviantart, i must improvise. now this fantastic painting shows Kirby fairly life-like: a squishy, pink sphere, fighting a re-imagined version of the enemies from his namesake game. the drawings are quite creative with an idea (i have seem similar works by him), and the accuracy to both games and ukiyo-e is stellar. though it feels like, in my opinion, that maybe a watercolor brush texture in the image program that you colored this in, such as photoshop. or if the painting was done by hand, well, you know where i am coming from. all in all, a sublime picture with a minor kink to work out.

or: fucking awesome with a small flaw.

I feel bad for Dedede, Kirby looks like a deranged potato lizard.

Still, he's a pink samurai, and that's OK in my book.
