Mario and Luigi - Partners in Time by BrendanCorris Mario and Luigi - Partners in Time by BrendanCorris
Here's my tribute to Mario & Luigi - Partners in Time. I'm pretty pleased with how this one came out. The only thing that kind of bugs me is all the work I did on the Shroob army in the background mostly ended up being blocked by Princess Shroob. Oh well, I'll soon post process step pictures on my blogger account.
I wanted to put E. Gadd in this picture because he's such a cool looking character but there wasn't really any place for him.
Here we have Mario and Luigi backed by their infantile selves taking on the ghoulish Shroobs and their lovely, curvy queen, Princess Shroob. This game may not be as awesome as Superstar Saga, but it's still a freaking awesome game with an incredebly fun and interactive battle system. It's major flaws in my mind are it's lack of an overworld, making the game seem very short with little exploring to be done (I still think we should have at least been allowed to play all the locations in present day as well). It also introduces far less new interesting places and characters than it's prequel. With the exception of the Shroobs, most new characters aren't terribly interesting (Toadburt and Kylie are just a couple of this game's unoriginal character concepts, and that stupid talking suitcase takes the cake for worst character ever). The game is also too damn easy. Even the final battles are incredebly easy as long as you keep your bros. items in a steady flow. The time theory in the game also makes no sense at all. I know the game is a comedy, but how the hell can the Shroobs take over the past Mushroom Kingdom and have no effect on the present. Ah, whatever. All bitching aside, this is an awesome game definately worth checking out.

Truly epic, exaggerated take on the characters, this is quite interesting.
Did you ever finish Bowser's Inside Story? With that and now Dream Team, I'd love to see your artwork for those games...
Nah, I never finished that one, it lost my interest. While I thought Bowser's dialogue was hilarious in the game, the actual gameplay was too scattered and senseless to me to keep me playing. It seems they are trying to direct the series away from its RPG base and turn it into another gimmicky series that just uses a bunch of random mini games, mostly involving special features the console has.
Absolutely astounding!

The way you drew Baby Mario reminds me of Billy from The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy as a baby.
The Princess is so deliciously curvy. To be honest I believe she deserved more English dialogue, a real name like Shroobella, and that her elder sister was unneeded.
