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.
