Yoshi's Rainbow Map by Paleona Yoshi's Rainbow Map by Paleona
In anticipation of "Yoshi's New Island" coming out for 3DS, here's a super colorful Yoshi illustration~
This is vaguely inspired by the map select screen of Super Mario World 2.

Thanks for looking!

Drawn in PSE 7.

I've never played the Yoshi Island game, but this...  I love how it's so rainbowy, but so earthtone and soft at the same time.
Really awesome.

Thanks, coloring this was a lot of fun~ and textures certainly help to pull colors together...
If you're into platforming games at all, I highly recommend you try out the original SNES Yoshi's Island sometime.  The controls are awesome, the graphics colorful and fun, and the enemies are pretty cute and have a lot of charm to them.  It was my favorite game as a kid and continues to be one of my top faves~

I've always loved how textures look but have been too skittish to really try :XD:
Hm, maybe I should try it...

They're really fun!  I like to play with the layer and opacity settings when I use them :3  The only downfall is now I feel semi-dependent on them for my art to look presentable, haha...  but yeah, I recommend testing them out :>

Pretty much a perfect rendition of the YI artstyle, let's hope the new game can live up to the original.

Well, I try to add my own personal touches to the classic YI style, but thank you~  I'm highly doubtful it will be as great as the original, but hopefully it will still be fun.

That Baby Mario is slightly disturbing. OTL LOVE the background though!

I'm not sure what's disturbing about him- was going for more of an impish attitude with him. But thanks~

They're a bit brighter than what I've been working with lately, so it was a lot of fun to color!

aww, they are super cute. Also I am looking forward to that game as well now that I actually have a 3DS (well... 2DS) to play it on.

Nice!  I am excited, but wary, since the last YI installment didn't seem like a big success.  The art in the trailer looks more like Yoshi's Story than Yoshi's Island, but I'm hopeful...
Thanks!

Yellow's got that "Why me?" look on him. If I had to face Kamek with a baby on my saddle, I'd react the same way. :lol:

Paleona Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014   Digital Artist
Haha, that's exactly what I was going for with Yellow. I can imagine it's a bit of a chore lugging baby Mario around... or at least I've never cared for him too much, lol.

Look how YIDS came out. It was nowhere near as epic but they can only improve from there, right?
Reply

Paleona Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014   Digital Artist
I actually skipped YIDS- I was interested, but so disappointed at the lack of any charm Yoshi seemed to have compared to the SNES sprite. Plus I was kinda late to the whole DS scene.

This is so gorgeous, Pale! I love the dance of colours...perfectly balanced, just puts it all together in a beautiful way. Also adore the scroll-look, the Yoshis, the hills...rainbow...list goes on hehe, a wonderful and cheerful piece. :heart: Probably my favourite of yours to date, which is saying a lot!!

Thank you so much, Cavea :heart: I really put more effort into this one, to make it look more polished than most of my other yoshi art. I went a bit crazy with the colors, but it was fun! Thanks for the sweet comment.

This is the bomb. You are the bomb.

Also, you got the light blue Yoshi's boots right according to the original Yoshi's Island! No sane person should notice that kind of detail! I am worried.

Paleona Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014   Digital Artist
Hey, thanks man!

Haha, funny you should mention the boots. I was originally going to give them all red boots, because I'm pretty sure I've seen art like that?? But I was all, "...no, this is wrong. They need to be the right color!"

Also, I am not watching you for some unknown reason... this shall be fixed.
