Hey, guys! Sorry it’s been a while! I’ve been busy as of late, but here’s a new piece I just finished for Anime North next week! I was going to work on a different piece, but then I randomly had the idea make an homage to Mewtwo’s past, and present. Also, it gave me an excuse to draw Armored Mewtwo, who was all kinds of badass!
I did a slight redesign on Mewtwo’s armor, but kept it relatively close to the original design. Also, I used Giovanni’s FireRed/LeafGreen design, cuz it’s way more intimidating than what he looks like in the anime!
And finally, a compilation of Mewtwos. Metal Mewtwo,
Mewtwo (manga version), Mega Mewtwo Y, and Mega Mewtwo X. Looks good
together in a nice happy pile of sameyness. I haven’t drawn so many
actual Mewtwos in years………
As he does everything, and I believe the man! Creating each character I’m sure is a huge undertaking, but I just started thinking about all the stuff they will have to add. Think about this. They have to come up with:
voice acting (possibly multiple actors for different regions, unless (s)he doesn’t talk)
Kirby copy power (with possible new Kirby clip)
new official art
punch-out stage splash text
eight unique colors
sound effects for all moves
arena entrance animation (probs not a pokeball)
item holding animations (mewtwo held items psychically in melee)
item swinging/throwing animations for each of the shit ton of items (lots of unique ones like super scope, fire flower, etc)
And that doesn’t include stuff they may or may not choose to include like:
custom special attacks
new official art poster
custom costumes (armored mewtwo pls)
putting him in allstar mode?
Palutena’s guidance chatter
trophies for classic, all-star, etc.
Plus testing all of these things with 52 other characters and trying to find any glitches that could occur from the most random of things (like the Marth/Lucy countering in front of a ledge that shot you off at high speeds or wectoring). I’m sure the staff has gone down since release as well, which must make this even harder.
So, as hard as it is, let’s try to be patient! Thank you, Sakurai!
