Finally, this comic has an awesome cover it deserves.
If you look closely, no I didn't draw any of them from scratch. I used some existing official artwork by nintendo and vectored their outlines and then I repainted them. I did edit, however, a bit.
Kelvin is a generic magikoopa from latest new super mario bros. but I drew his trademark long hair.
Bombie is from Bombette Paper Mario artwork with an added ponytail.
Ned is king whomp artwork minus crown and added the his trademark scar.
Perry however I edit the most by combining an official piranha plant artwork with legts from a ptooey from super mario bros. 3 artwork and vectored them together.
Overall I think I did a decent job with this.
Shell Bangers comic is also in need of a overhaul update like Merc&Tech but it can wait, for I have lots in my mind now.
