Procured a Bucket by Gato88 Procured a Bucket by Gato88
Fan art time! Asha and Pepe from Monster World IV finding a useful item in the Stream Sanctuary. Was drawn pretty much from memory without reference material, so characters (and the BG) look a little funky compared to how it looks in the actual game. T'was fun though! The game has such a cute style and the monsters are just endearing.

The game is great! I didn't play any of the earlier entries yet, I am somehow convinced IV was the only one worth putting time into.

I really like Wonder Boy in Monster World. Which is Japan is called Wonder Boy 5: Monster World 3. Which is obnoxiously confusing.

Yeah, I seem to recall the series being a lovely mess in more ways than one - especially considering what game belongs to which series and how localization handled the whole thing - It is vaugely related to the Adventure Island games in some capacity if I recall (I should've probably looked this up).

I think Adventure Island is a direct adaptation of the first game of the wonder boy series, brought over to other countries, by a different publisher. After it was successful, they used the same style to make more Adventure Island games, while the Wonder Boy series became something different with each installment.

It's something like that.

You drew her great there, even without references. Certainly one of the best Sega games nobody played.

Yeah, it's always frustrating when good games go ignored.

Especially if the game is only released in one particular region, in this case Japan.

Have you checked how it really looked and seen if you remember it correctly? Just for giggles?

I did! The characters are fairly accurate I think - although I based them on their in-game sprites rather than official art making them look a bit more simplified (like Asha's clothing) and I also took a lot of liberties with the background as well. I guess I went for more of a "general" rendtition of the characters rather than faithful representation.

Well, then it's a own flavoured fan-art, those are better I say then "complete rip-off"s. x3 (though they can be good to of you can really capture everything right, but still)
