I kinda really liked the way that Bowser came out in this picture
, so I thought I'd make it a stand-alone picture. I also added some shading, while I was at it.
While the King of the Koopas may have become somewhat of a joke in most modern games, we shouldn't forget that he IS still a ferocious, beastly monster. So, whenever I draw Bowser, I like to show this side of him as often as possible. And here, drawing a Bowser more akin to Miyamoto's original design for him in SMB1, I get to draw Bowser a little more demonic than usual. I just have always enjoyed the more evil, more badass side of Bowser that is often neglected in this day and age (outside of maybe the Smash Bros. series, particularly Giga Bowser where you REALLY get a truly awesome monster).
