Graffiti Returns to Dreamland by TheAkanemnon Graffiti Returns to Dreamland by TheAkanemnon
Sorry for the stupid title.

In the original skech Kirby's graffiti was designed more simplistc, much like how a toddler's first drawing looks like. First it was supposed to show his animal friends but then I changed it to Dedede, Waddle Dee and Meta Knight. Then the idea of "toddler art" was scrapped entirely and I moved to actual grafitti art, since Paint Kirby is supposed to be a good artist.

It kinda bugs me that his grafitti looks like it's actually happening behind him .__.

Done with watercolor, black ink and chalk

I drew Kirby, who supposedly did the graffitty, but in actuality I made the whole picture...
Welp, if I think about it, it's really a bit complicated xD

Paint Kirby used Splash on (enemy) Heavy Lobster.
It's super effective!
(Enemy) Heavy Lobster became confused.
(Enemy) Heavy Lobster hurt itself in confusion.

Sorry for the refrence. Could'nt resist xD

x3 It looking like it's hapenning right behind him is a good thing, but if you want it to show the wall a bit more you could have put some cracks in the wall or an overall shadow from a different building or shadow from the bricks, I do say some of the bricks look like there apart of the image cause there angled funny, but it looks fine to me.

Man müsste sich einfach mal ein paar Künstler schnappen und zusammen son Graffiti machen. Wie geil wer das denn ?
Zum Bild;mir gefällt Meta Knight total klasse.<3 Ich find das mit der Kreide auch ganz toll.:D

Als Idee allein wär es wirklich eine tolle Aktion. Ein paar Leute zusammentrommeln und dann sowas auf die Beine zu stellen wär richtig cool ^^
Wobei es in der Realität natürlich anders aussieht; Graffities gelten immerhin als Verschmutzung oder Beschädigung öffentlichen Eigentums .__. Ich weiß, viele Leute aus Großstädten sehn das nicht so krumm, aber trotzdem (bin halt vom Land xD).

Incredible, I just love the swirly clouds around Landia and the stars around Meta Knight. I also like the more 'realistic' Dedede, very cool looking. The slightly crazed look of Magolor is chilling!
And, of course, Kirby looks adorable! :heart: I can just imagine him thinking "Oh Yeah, I made that! :D"

Thank you.
Yeah, since it's graffiti, shapes like stars are an absolute must xD.
Oh, and those 'clouds' around Landia are actually the fur of his/her neck, although I went a little overboard with it. Personally I'm more of a fan of Dedede with a 'realistic' design (there are some exeptions though) xD. That look in Magolors eyes I somehow got from Marx (with the googly eyes and stuff). Magolor's more of an evil mastermind with a slight tendency to be crazy, in contrary to Marx who's a total maniac.

Ich find das total super, gerade weil das "Graffiti" hinter ihm so toll aussieht aber trotzdem durch die Steine wie ne Wand wirkt *___*
Ich liebe auch Kirbys frechen Blick und die paar Farbkleckse hier und da. Ganz besonders hat aber Meta Knight meinen blick auf sich gezogen, der sieht so dramatisch aus~<3 xDD
Wirklich tolles Bild, ich könnt ewig drauf starren.

Ich habe mich sehr stark an echter Graffiti-Kunst orientiert und mehrere gesehen bei denen Frauenköpfe mit stoischen Blicken abgebildet waren - da passte Meta Knight für die Rolle wie die Faust aufs Auge xD
Ich habe halt gemerkt, dass als ich dieses Bild einigen Personen gezeigt habe, sie den 'Hintergrund' für den Vordergrund gehalten haben. Ich wusste nich, ob ich das für gut oder schlecht empfinden sollte xD

Nya, ich find is scho offensichtlich dass es ein Wandbild sein soll, immerhin sind ja diese Ziegel dazwischen und Kirby steht ja offensichtlich davor mit der Sprühkanne xD"
Ich weiß nich, man hätte höchstens noch ein paar mehr Kannen vor das Bild auf den Boden stellen können, umd deutlicher zu machen. Aber wer das so garnicht bemerkt, der is scho irgendwie schäl xD

In dem Originalsketch, in dem das noch viel simplistischer gehalten wurde, standen eine menge Farbeimer ind auch eine Leiter davor. Die Leiter hab ich weggelassen, weil es sonst vom Wandbild weggenommen hätte... die Farbeimer hätte man jedoch echt durch Farbdosen austauschen können .__.'
