Kirby Canvas Curse by Piranhartist Kirby Canvas Curse by Piranhartist
This game has a lot fewer enemies than I thought it did- Tiny Town barely has anyone in it :faint:

ANYWAYS Full View Please~

This game is one that's incredibly near and dear to my heart. It was the first Kirby game that I had ever bought, and honestly if it wasn't for it- I probably wouldn't be the artist that I am today. One of the first subjects that really got me into drawing on a daily basis was Kirby when I first got to play this in 05'

Sure I started drawing back in 01' or so, but I never was doing it consistently until 05/06

Another first I have to thank Canvas Curse for is for being the first ever digital poster I did, it's hard to believe that I actually did this thing all on one layer back then. >XDDD

Since then I always wanted to redo that poster, but rather than just representing the bosses of the game, I wanted to represent everything about this game, the characters, colors, art styles, every lick of it- so really it's more of a reimagining than a simple remake.

Only thing I didn't include was Drawcia's Soul. Because... well it is Drawcia and I already drew her in xD Plus it would've added too much clutter I feel trying to fit it in somewhere ;P

Speaking of Drawcia she's also one of my top favorite Kirby characters :iconloveloveplz: it was such a shame that the only original songs in the game were ones tied with her and her boss battle because they sounded fantastic. :iconcryforeverplz: They're so twisted and tragically epic sounding it got me to thinking of what her backstory might actually be. And I thought that mayhaps she was an incomplete painting of the magic artist Adeline (since at the end of the game Drawcia's said to be an "Unknown Painting"), and from being abandoned by her creator for newer projects she succumbed to the dark matter in order to use a twisted version of Adeline's powers in order to make her own world in which she could never be forgotten.

Just a thought :iconteheplz:

It also makes me think that rather than the player being the one with the magic brush, that it's actually Adeline's, considering the rainbow paint. Maybe when it gets changed into different colors in the options menu then it's different people that are using it I dunno

Enjoy guys~

It'd be pretty expensive to get used, but it's pretty easy to get used for about $20 or less :,D I'd be a little biased in saying but it really IS worth the money if you can find it.~

Dear lord, this is simply grand!
The amount of attention to detail you've put here is incredible, and all your hard work really shows because every single aspect of the picture, from the characters, expressions, backgrounds, colors, is very well executed and the way they all blend in together so flawlessly is extremely admirable.
All I can say is, bravo; this piece is just so damn awesome, and I'm quite surprised it doesn't have enough views! I mean, you can see every individual detail, and still keep finding new things on a second look.

...I am aware I have just written out half a novel there, but yes, as I've said, this is excellent and I really admire you for it!

Even if it's not my most popular piece, it's one I'm the most proud of in recent years- and I think it tops quite a few of the other posters I've done in the past. <D It was really fun to work on even if I had to take some massive breaks in between due to school and other things ;o;

No problem. :) You ought to be proud indeed, it really is a very well done piece. I do know the feeling of having to take breaks because of other things as well, but the final product is very much worth it and it's very evident here! :3

This is completely incredible.
I am probably getting so repetitive saying that but your stuff is TRULY incredible PRETTY MUCH ALL THE TIME.
The detail in this though, just- wow. I can't even describe how awesome it is. I REALLY LOVE THAT DEDEDE int the cart, and the ball dedede about to get poked by the spear... xDDDD And paint roller is so cute too, aaah- BUT LOOK AT
THOSE
BACKGROUNDS.
I can't even beGIN to describe the wonders my eyes are beholding right now.......
I wish I could describe what I loved about all of them but I can't even figure out how to
say
words
right now... Sorry, I'm just really tired but this is sO BEAUTIFUL... Please know that I am looking at ALL THE LITTLE TINY details in those backdrops and being like "ohmygoodnesshowdoesshedothis." <'D

EXCELLENT JOB MANG AND SORRY THIS COMMENT IS SO LATE ;;;

Repetitive or not, I'm still always excited to hear your thoughts on whatever I make :,D It always pumps me up knowing that you and other people liked it, because then I can push to do even bigger and better things next time ;v; :heart:

I honestly have to say I had more fun with drawing the backgrounds than the different characters! xD All the art styles in the game were so different and unique that of I did them all the same it just wouldn't feel right.

AND LATE IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN NEVER :iconbigheartplz:
even if it were a year late I'd still be just as flattered then as I am now a;sldfkjas <,,,,,D
THANK YOU SO MUCH AS ALWAYS GURL <3333

Wow, so this is your big inspiration. Mine was a doodle a friend did of me, but this is just fantastic!

Now that I think about it isn't almost all of the Kirby Final bosses in his game somehow dark and creepy? To go from a small pink puffball to someone's soul is a bit funny though.

That's the one thing I've loved about the Kirby series is how huge of a contrast there is from the heroes to the villains. The fact that all of them are rather creepy yet are drawn in the same sort of innocent style makes them even more frightening.~ :iconimthinkingplz:

I know right? They do also have awesome songs, like Marks song. I love that one.

I actually remember having that game many years ago when I was trying to figure out how a DS worked, and I could never get past the painter on roller skates so I gave up. I don't think we have the game anymore, but I guess I missed out on something!

Awwww the Paint Roller was one of my favorite stages! xD It's a shame that most of the bosses were just minigames, but as minigames they were loads of fun to play in short bursts! :giggle: I wish that more of the bosses in the game were like Drawcia's but at least the game's still just as fun either way~ <D

I could say that Canvas Curse is my favorite spin-off title. I haven't played this game in years, so I feel a bit nostalgic looking at this right now.

Since it was my first experience in the series it's one of my favorites in general :iconloveloveplz: Since playing a lot of the main series games now it's probably just my favorite spin-off, but it still can't leave that special nostalgic place in my heart.~ :iconfinallyplz:

Also I gave the waddle dee ball a bandana just because it makes him a bit more distinct like the current waddle dee friend of Kirby in the recent games :giggle:

This really looks great! I find that people usually care more about Squeak Squad or other Kirby games
rather than this one. Either way, you did a lovely job on this and capture Canvas Curse really well!

About a year after I had done the original I always thought it just looked completely terrible, at the time it was good but there was no way I could leave it like that without doing some sort of an overhaul xDDDD

My art style no, in becoming an artist though yes ;) There's way too many things these days that have all collectively influenced the way I draw now for me to count.
