actual spore creature
figured id make one of these 😎 here you will find at least some mario fanart, as well many random creatures i came up with myself, all in bright colors! and spore stuff frequently too!
i try to post every saturday!! for the record, if a caption for a pic is a quote, that means im just reusing the caption from the discord i posted it on initially
keep this in mind: every pic in this spoiler has been here ever since i made the thread, and theyre a lil outdated now since ive progressed in art a fair bit. see my most recent posts for newer art!

from the end of june, i redrew a thing from 2015

from the start of this month, me hecking around with pokemon fusions

luigi from earlier this week with a HAT FRIEND.. yeah winking to represent the L

from yesterday, this unused smw sprite

raptor man

after some heckinh around with sprites heres toadette if she originated in pm64 ...

turned out kinda bad but

spindrift but i kinda sorta slammed the original 64 design and the 64 ds design i swear ive spent more time on the flower than the rest of the drawing

moreso a quick funny to show a thing during a conversation but i spent more time on this than i needed to

lil revamped sml2 sprites ive been working on for like over a year. just that day ive added the worms, flying face, bone fish and noko bombette (i forgot a ton of names whoops)

another one for the middle of a conversation but then i decided to color it so

bonus recolor based off of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nembrotha_yonowae maybe they colud be siblings

actual spore creature

steve in my kinda shading

a big boy. actually a small boy but whatever. a round boy.

some glydon costume. the third one is for pressing up

here he come, an angel

my mom who was watching me draw this a bit asked if it was woody wodpecker

oh yeah cant go without globox especially since i may or may not have gotten obsessed over him
hes thinking very very hard with his one (1) braincell

heres a friend (going fishing)


snake from mario clash... their japanese name translates to something like snakey mom apparently this is VERY important

item shopkeeper!!!!!!!!!!! i love her!!!!!!

zelen !!

actual spore creature
awful hospital is a realley good webcomic i recommend if youre Not Sensitive to a fair bit of stuff like talking organs and flesh wals...

two on a site again which doesnt have fill tool. i had to color these Manually

i did want to draw him running (Without The Bag making him Absolutely Unrestrained) but i cant do poses so i guess a casual stroll it is

another redraw of a 2015 thing take a look at that void

attempts at elh coloration
i feel like it would have realy weird swirly colors just changing if it ever had colors ta all
i think i prefer it just blank white though


i really desperately needed to DRAW AN INSEC So i did

excited for the direct so i procrastinated by drawing smw colored mario doing the minecraft story mode pose

sequel to yesterdays drawing.. except this time luigis smw colors werent as easy to work with as they were with mario so i had to heck around a bit so excuse the purple moustache

zelen !!

actual spore creature
starting off with another skin like that steve i made a while ago

im gonna be honset i have no idea how i really just went and managed to do this

and now i have decided im gonna be drawing pm64 partners every day until im done with em..

traced over icky iggy for some reason. this barely even qualifies to be here

ended up inventing him in a friend server randomly

more partnetrs

i envisioned him to be a bit lankier when i first started drawing him but that didnt work out
anyway? new potential oc?


made this in a pony town custom server whoopssssss (original provided)

zelen !!

actual spore creature
oh i totally forgot to post yesterday
ok so this one has a bit of a backstory! back in may i drew this...

two monhs later, exactly two months later in fact(both on 12th), i drew this. Hedge Hog

and now here from last week(also on the 12th) the backstory of which i just showed
remember sun pig? and its sequel Hedge Hog? well heres another one, Air Hog, which somehow came out of ahoge (ahoge is a lil bit of hair sticking out which you see a lot in anime)

back to regular stuff. my motivation kinda died for the last two partners for some reason : (

it was 13th. this was supposed to be small mario but i didnt manage to do it too well

like sushie this also took like all day to get around to drawing i like the spiny though

Bug Time

im pretty proud of this one. th has prehensile tails

remember that bird man? heres another one from the same pt custom server. a fish man

priscilla is the best thing to have originated from yoshis island ds
now im gonna be asking the real questions here. priscilla seems to be based on an antlion, as also evident by her japanese and korean name apparently. now the behavior she shows is standard of antlion Larva. does that mean priscilla as we see her is but a baby...

a hallucigenia, which is a sorta extinct worm thing with a ton of legs. i dont entirely understand what they are but i love them

zelen !!

actual spore creature
ended up waiting until saturday to start posting again just so i coul have a consistent weekday to post stuff on
half of him is missing but my excuse is that i didnt wanna come up with a pose i just wanted to try some colored outlines

almost forgot to draw that day and didnt have much ideas so i went with this

and now: some creachers

goonies with closed wings which im not sure is a thing weve seen ever

more creachers but in spore because i realised i havent made anything in it in a whole ass month
this is a tribute to al these beetles i see all over the place and i still dont know their exact species

zelen !!

actual spore creature
not much again
ill probably be drawing the rest of the ttyd partners but def not as frequently as i did with pm64 partners because that ended up burning me out
anyway she

i feel like i didnt get his proportions right
but yeah mario makr 3ds's data mentions a few unused costumes (costumes werent even in the 3ds port at all) including rayman

it was october 1 and they appear only in a pumpkin zone level so it fits

that lad

yeah roblox game fanart. iam Not Kidding. this is my ostritch from feather family. her name is just big lass

using mostly 2 of the same parts until i get this

i had to color tis manually!!!

this pose he does when transforming in yi but i didnt get it exactly right

I Argue About Politics

Wiki Patroller
Bazooka Mario
Pretty neat Mario head spaceship. At least you manage to get substantial hair on him, which most Mario creations just lack.

zelen !!

actual spore creature
thabk you.. wow these other ones are Wig
attempt at diagonal rails since i onitced it just defaults to whats on the left. Well that didnt really work

more sml2 stuff, with two versions of big bird because the artwork which has him brown contradicts his names in some other languages that call him a corvid. the second one is based moreso on the original sprite

more spore

th creature ive made during my new playthrough of all the stages also i intend to continue it to civ today or tomorrow. whether ill go through with this depnds on how much ill get distracted by rayman

i was on gallery of new files recently and saw this blooper sprite from super mario bros special and wantd to draw it

despite its fearsome appearance its generally not that dangerous to humans and can even make a great pet that also eats random insects in your house to boot!
also it plant


remember those bird and fish lads? well i have more from the same pony town custom server

muddy buddy aka peak charcater design

aand back to the server

tertis attack styled icon


another icon

zelen !!

actual spore creature
i have a fair bit even though i keep forgetting to draw daily
some very drgaon looking insect


i drew this in tux paint i went FERAL

i dont realy care for super princess peach but i like blizzzauruses design. heres her doing a poor attempt at intimdateing


this toy ive had ever since i was a baby always felt to me it had like. animal qualities. so i tried to reimagine it as such. i feel i could do better

barely fits here but i found this drawing from when i was probably like 9 or so. looks very bad but i found it cute
watch out i wanna redraw this as well

went through another campaign so heres the creature at th end of tribal stage and also during creature. theyre shamans!! also plant. they worship the sun

i forgot to make more teteris attack icons but i remembered to do it and made sluggy

so with the help of random.org i chose random parts and the coloring, but it was up to me to decide how i wanna use the parts, what modifications theyll get, and the actual colors
the lore is that it stores crystals in the fur on its chest, but wont let anyone get them and it spits poison out of the tubes on hte head

finally, a bumpty

zelen !!

actual spore creature
yet more.. with a lil bit more mario this time
are yall tired of dergun town thingies yet!! this is another one

considering how the process of drawing this was going this turned out much much better than i expected
anyway ill be drawing something mario odyssey related for the entire week because its 2 year anniversary is this week! i have not planned anything

a pokio! unfortunately i forgot what the tail look like and only realised later the same day while looking at noclip and i was like Oh Dam

urban stingby doing Fly Stuff because it is My drawing and i get to choose the headcanon i shove in
its supposed tob e rubbing its hands like flies do but i didnt do a great job at that

the face wnded up looking dumb!!

somehow mario odyssey is not all there is here. i remade a 2012 creature of mine, its called minidragon. it is juste 5 cm in length
look at that

also i dressed up a maxis creature in the tribal outfitter. theyre kinda cowards and hide under a decorated skull

and finally. i remembered to color the outlines for once

zelen !!

actual spore creature
no fanart this time sorry!! i had no idea what to draw the whole week so i just came up with random creatures mostly
som bird, with TWO COLORS

modeled limb blob, who should be in one of the september posts i think.

a beebtle, was supposed to be brown but i went overboard with colors

dunno what this is but i like how it turned out

i really had. No drawing ideas

some oc i made late last year and then promptly stopped drawing but i just felt like doing it anyway. his name is roseo and hes got a robot bird gf
he originates from me trying to come up with locals for cloud kingdom but it kinda drifted away from mario super quick so i decided eh might as well be an oc or something

and now another oc i made like a year ago and then just sorta abandoned, roseo's robot bird gf, ardi! she originates from pony town actually!

and finally another random creacher

bonus that doesnt really fit here because it was just a super fast doodle but i like how it turned out for some reason
while making this post i had to retype nearly the whole thing THRICE because my browser kept freezing psa do NOT use comodo dragon dont suffer like i do. I am legit so mad. cant wait to abandon it for vivaldi
