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

wondering if you could do some MLP:FiM Ukiyo-e paintings for the Bronies.

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.
