I never played Paper Mario so far and rather let Dragonith describe his submission for our last art challenge!
No matter how incompetent he may be, I’ve always loved Bowser as the main antagonist for the Mario series. Something about a giant fire breathing turtle monster just tickles my fancy. Particularly, his depiction in the Paper Mario titles is my favorite version of him. He had personality, power, a role as an anti-hero, and was a complete meatheaded dork that threw tantrums when he didn’t get his way.
Definitely preferred this to his typical “GRR I KIDNAPPED THE PRINCESS” personality he takes in the main series Mario games… which is why I didn’t particularly like how they handled him in Sticker Star. Seriously Nintendo, don’t repeat that again.
Kind of a side note, but I also loved the addition of Kammy Koopa in the first two installments. I liked how Bowser had an intelligent (yet vain) second in command, and she added her own humor to the table
Was pretty disappointed that she practically vanished when Super Paper Mario came around. Really hope she makes a return in a future title (preferably not in the same format as Sticker Star. Blegh…)!
Art Challenge Mastered 10/10!
