Kirby Triple Deluxe by SaccharoKirby Kirby Triple Deluxe by SaccharoKirby
Edit (5/11/14): wow, a DD? I'm super honored! Thank you everyone! :)

This is my contest entry for :iconda-real-kirby-club::)

This is seriously my longest watercolor artwork.  I did it on a huge paper (I believe 18 x 24), sketched everything out (took around a week and a half) and including watercolors and school... it took over a month for me to finally finish it.  I'm really proud of it.

I drew all the bosses (excluding Dark Meta Knight and Dark Dedede because he's already in the pic lol) as well as a bit of their background.  I also added four Kirbys and the four new copy abilities.  But that flower tho lol... Either way, this is a huge accomplishment and again, very very proud of it.

Please fav and comment; really appreciate it! If you would like a commission, prices and rules are located here:

Daily Deviation

Kirby Triple Deluxe (Contest) by SaccharoKirby A wonderful Kirby fan art, the amount of details in this artwork is truly amazing. ( Featured by Ry-Spirit )
:iconmrgrinmore:
This splendidly created watercolor by :iconsaccharokirby: could easily stand as not only a solid piece of fanart for our loveable pink-puffed metamorphic hero, but as promotional material for a history of Kirby book or other official art book. Created with such skill, this artist could easily create a cover for whichever next Kirby game were to come out should the art and marketing teams seek detail over the current simplistic style on more recent games.

I see only three opportunities for improvement on this piece which the artist could either update or apply toward a new piece: Firstly, the scale King Dedede with respect to the other characters in the same depth of background should have him slightly larger, or have him placed further back so as perspective would scale him accordingly to a size similar to what he is currently at. Secondly, his head placement seems a tad too far to his right (our left) considering his pose and tilt. Thirdly, the hardness of the eye lines on the four Kirby and that of the cloud they are on is strongly contrasting to the hardness of lines elsewhere in the piece. Yes, it does center attention, but it also slightly distracts when enjoying the details of the piece more closely. These three things are relatively minor, both in opinion and corrective measures if they were to be taken, but they were the only things I found as opportunities for improvement.

This is an absolutely spectacular artwork full of detail and creativity. The characters look true to their official design and the four Kirby transformations in the center add a nice sense of composition to the picture. Impressively colored, nice and bright, although there's a bit too much white in some parts such as the front Kirby.

Intricate detail. I'm especially amazed by the wing-like plates of the blue character at the top (I don't know all their names, sorry XD). Good shiny texture. I like the metallic look of the yellow Kirby's helmet and the back Kirby's bells, as well as the highlights on the blue jewel of the snake. The eyes look great, especially on the snake. It's good that you made the shading imply actual light sources instead of doing the direction of the shading random on everything, like I see in some other art ;P

As for improvements, I noticed the bleeding paint in some parts but it must be very hard to create such detail in watercolor. The red arrow pointers coming out of the big blue thing's head visibly have blue mixed on them. I'm not sure how to avoid this since I've never watercolored before. It's impressive that it doesn't bleed almost anywhere else though. I can imagine it's hard to stop the paint and water from running.

Also, the picture seems to be too busy in the lower right hand side, where as the left side doesn't have as much in it. I was thinking you could change the sizes of some of the characters to fix up the lack of balance between the sides of the picture, but that might lead to incorrect size differences of the characters.

Nontheless, this is a beautiful and lively picture. I can tell you put a lot of time, effort, and love into creating it and I wish you the best of luck on your journey in the world of art!
