:iconkrystalfleming:Krystal's Masaru character from -HERE- / Super Looter! by KrystalFleming

I liked the little guy and imagined a Famicom and American Tude parody box art. I remembered a bit of my Japanese classes to make it a bit more authentic.

Hope you enjoy this Krystal :D Stay Cool?

Wow Synduo this is so awesome, I just love how you drew little Masaru! I love their confused face in the japanese box art as opposed to the American version. So much determination and raw attitude! I also love how their blush is absent in the second picture, ain't no time for looking cute and blushy in America!
I'm always so amazed by your shading technique, I don't understand how you do it but it looks so perfect for the lineless art style you use. It looks so soft and smooth! The way you did the colors is always really calming and soothing to the eyes. I'm so amazed by the shine on their sword too, it looks amazing and a lot more like a serious sword from a stupid legend! I love the colors of the sky in the Japanese version also, it's got such lovely pink colors and then in America they just take away all that color. I'd probably go out of my way to get the japanese version just to have that art. I love how the Synduo SYSTEM logo even gets angry eyes. That's amazing, this is amazing! I love it!

This instantly made me think of Kirby boxart how he always goes from hunkydory in Japan to incredibly cheezed off here in the states. >XD

Really loved the designs she did when I first saw them pop up in my inbox, and I really like your take on him as well.~ Very funny <D

XD how nice you picked up on what I was going for there, Kito. 

Yeah I love me some box-art, but when America touches it, its always >8( and I love that since its super over the top and unnecessary.  I also kinda extended that to the logo and the colors so its more of stab at how things are localized here. 

Thanks though, I saw those last night and I was like "gonna do a thing" in the morning.

It makes me curious what they're going to do for the latest Kirby game now, since he's starting out with angry eyes on the Japanese cover :iconimthinkingplz:

And you're welcome! <D
