And, a little earlier than intended, introducing DryKirby64. It's quite a different style but I like it. Reminds me of Paper Mario.

Does this comic look familiar to anyone? It should because if it doesn't it means the blog section is 100% ignored. This comic was salvaged from the original idea for a Mario Kart 7 comic that Hurricane Sandy put on the Back Burner. We'll have another Mario Kart comic soon so stay tuned.

Hello! This is my art, so does that mean I'm famous now? I don't know. Probably not.

Anyway, there was some trouble drawing this comic due to (ironically) some nasty storms with high winds. So there miiiight be a few mistakes here and there, but it's only my first time, so it's definitely gonna get better!

And yeah, I guess we have to change the bottom part now, huh? I'll do that once the color version goes up, I guess.

Here's a color experiment, do you like the above version with the shading or do you think this other version works better?

Look at that amazing "& DryKirby64" note down there. Isn't it amazing? I'm finally famous, you guys!

Personally, I prefer the version without shading (and I'm sure it saves time for Box).

Oh, lord.

It's amazing what half a year does to you, huh?

Nice new style. It's halfway between chibi and regular.

Ahaha, I get it.
Finally, I'll never deal with the Spiny Blue ever again...as much.

Yay, drykirby! I'm looking forward to seeing more of you art! I congratulate you on making the position, or something like that.

I'd probably be in therapy, too, if I'd had wings genetically spliced to my back for the soul purpose of making me even MORE over-powered.

In the second panel there is a typo I think.

"The 7th Grand Prix has been cancelled due the newly added gliders...". I'm pretty sure there should be a to after the due.

I like the idea of the shading but its a little too dark and it's kinda blocky
good try though

Nice job. The new art style really pops out. Do you guys think you'll ever make a comic with one of the sidekicks from one of the Paper Mario games?

I really liked this comic style, particularly Roll's design.
Also, that's the silliest pitchfork that I've ever seen.
nezomi (Guest) edit delete reply
thats not a pichfork thats a battle axe/spear
Death (Guest) edit delete reply
You mean a halberd?
DryKirby64 edit delete reply
DryKirby64
The real answer is that I'm awful at drawing everything. It was supposed to be a pitchfork but it ended up looking like a halberd somehow. You can still see a pitchfork-esque weapon in panel 4.

Looks better as a halberd.

For some reason I'm wanting to see a Pentakill comic from you guys. Maybe a "How characters are gaining new jobs outside of what they're portrayed as doing in their games as the focus

I like your art style DryKirby. Looks great!

Also love the mention of the super horn. Take that spiny shell!
nezomi (Guest) edit delete reply
i ment that it could had ben a battle axe or a spear. but halberd is ok as well
