So I finished the cover art for Super Ubi Land

I'm going to be at the SXSW and Austin Chronicle event called 'Game on Austin' and I realized that I didn't have a cover for Super Ubi Land (doh!)... so I drew one up last night... Going for that classic Mario, Kirby, Donkey Kong Country feel and want the kiddos to really want to play the game.

Anyways, enough yapping. Here is the cover I drew up. I'm most likely going to make another one as development continues but just need this for now.



Here's the process for those who care about that sort of thing:



***Update***
Changes made from your suggestions :D
Thanks guys!

Awesome!
I love the cohesive style you have going here and the fact that you hand draw everything.
It looks like a high quality, polished product and more importantly a really fun game.

On another note; I recently bought myself a Motion Computing le1600. It is a tablet PC that a lot of artists have been adopting over the past few years. They are a little old and not incredibly powerful but they have a Wacom Digitiser built in and they can run Windows 7, Photoshop, Artrage, Paint tool Sai and Mypaint.

It might save you a bit of time and they are pretty cheap on ebay.

Thank you!

I have a Wacom Cintiq but for some odd reason I just cannot get used to drawing on it. I will never understand why... I tried. I just really enjoy the feel of .5mm mechanical pencil on computer paper haha.

How are you liking that tablet by the way? I would probably get one just so when I'm out I could possibly sketch up some new ideas and play around with concepts.

thank you for showing the 'process' it is lovely.

all you cintiq users are making me jealous...lol. i just got a samsung series 7 slate, and i intend to move my art to a completely digital flow. but it is taking some 'doing' to get used to the stylus. practice, practice and more practice i hope, will get me where i want to be.

that poster is a t-shirt if i ever saw one. it's beautiful.

ps. the shadows on the cacti are pointing in the wrong direction from the light source...ugh. please forgive my critical eye. it's still beautiful.harrio2012-09-20 22:25:30

[QUOTE=NotionGames]I have a Wacom Cintiq...[/QUOTE]

*transforms into jelly*

Anyway, the cover looks great. Very vibrant and lively.

Two minor things I'd point out. The highlight on the balloon has an outline, which looks weird.

The "L"'s outline is also visible in the highlight.

Other than that, nice stuff!
