Bowser, King of the Koopas by professorhazard Bowser, King of the Koopas by professorhazard
Originally drawn as an identification portrait in the OMNIDEX, the predecessor to Fiktionary Dot Com.

Ahh, the infamous Bowser pic. Most famous for two things among my circle of friends:

1.) Some little turd here on DeviantArt copied the picture and claimed it was his own "new design" on how he previously used to draw Bowser, which was as a horrendously anthropomorphized abomination, and

2.) I posted it on /ic/, the Art Critique board on 4chan, and was informed that I had traced it.

I kind of wish I had saved the first one to show people. At any rate, I innovated the pose, I did not trace it, it is just a really good picture. If I was going to try to get a job as an artist for Nintendo, it would be either the first or the last piece in my portfolio. Probably last.

Normally I find that villain-types have smaller irises and pupils, but I find that the eyes here make Bowser more engaged with the viewer for their size, and I'm really not that surprised given how he seems to switch comfortably between kidnapping Princess Peach and competing in go-kart racing/golfing/everything else with her and her rescuers. I could easily imagine this picture, along with Wart's and Ganondorf's, hanging above their respective thrones.

Bowser is definitely the unpopular kid turned despot who still just aches for acceptance, but wouldn't know what to do with it if he got it.
