Okay, so! This is the other half of the entries that were being submitted to the SMSPower! art competition before they were self-disqualified because of the lack of entrants.
This was done in collaboration with [url=https://www.furaffinity.net/user/blckflyn]BlckFlyn[/url]! They did absolutely amazing lineartwork, that can be found at [url=https://www.smspower.org/forums/post109836#109836]the SMSPower! post[/url] on the subject.
This was the more deliberate artwork of the two - with a sketch and (pretty badly done) references for the characters my end. Without the incredible work and lineart of Flynn's, this picture would be truly and utterly impossible.
Please give them a follow!
This picture was drawn over onto the [i]SEGA Master System[/i], and comes in at one palette line, and at exactly 448 tiles used up. Which is JUST squeezing inside the VRAM.
